I tend to wait 'til it's all out. Hate waiting a week between episodes. Although I do have a tendency to stop randomly midway through a series... but that's under my own control.

Depends really, if it airs in old format instead of widescreen ill wait till Either DVD/Blu-ray's come out, if they don't air widescreen right away (Did that with clanned), ecchi shows aslong as there uncensored i wont wait even if it isn't in widescreen. If it's censored, im not gonna waste my time usually. I like pantsu and boobs, makes me rage when there is censors.

definitely, because I'm usually not a patient person so, therefore, I simply can't wait any longer for the next episode to air. I've seen the first episode of both Kampfer and Kimi ni Todoke, I have both of those two on hold and i'm waiting for them to stop airing so i can continue watching them. That's just how I roll.

I'd rather wait because if I like the series, I marathon them, but if it's airing and I happen to watch one, I end up watching it every week as it comes out because I can't wait D:

Depends on the anime and how suspenseful it is.

For something like Bleach, I may skip about 5 episodes, then do a mini-marathon. Rinse, repeat.

But there hasn't been a single week so far that I've missed an episode of FMA: Brotherhood.

I tend to watch the latest episode as soon as I can. Lucky for me I have friends who watch the same anime I do, and they just love to spoil everything.

I usually watch a bunch of new shows at the start of the season and then sort of only keep up with one or two of them. The rest I either drop or finish by marathoning. In general, I only keep up with the shows that have massive cliffhangers or I'm really into.

Most of the time I wait until a series or at least a season of it has fully aired before watching. Now I might download show episodes and convert them to avi while the series is still airing, especially if a series is near completion. Mostly because I do I like going aw man I can't wait until such and such episode comes out and I have the option of watching at my leisure if I wait until a series is finished before downloading it.

Now about the only exception is "Isekai no Seikishi Monogatar" 1 episode a month thats about 45 minutes long and I am a huge tenchi Muyo fan, so there is probably no way that I am going to patiently wait a whole year or year and half depending on how long it takes the fansubbers for that show to completely finish before watching it. The other shows I did not wait until completion is Kanokon OVAs and Seto no Hanayome OVAs.Surprisingly I did wait until the first set of To Love-Ru OVA episodes finished before watching them.

Only if it is a series which I want to adamantly marathon, otherwise no. I don't mind waiting for an episode each week, plus its good because if you do not have much time, you can still watch all the anime into segements which is a bonus.

If I waited for One Piece to finish, I Would be missing one hell of an anime xD considering there's rumours it's supposed to reach the 1000 episode mark, it would take a loong time to finish

I watch while it's airing. Each individual episode seems better for some reason when I watch it that way.

Never have I been interested in a show and decided to wait. I don't marathon and airing shows are perfectly fine because that's all I watch on Sundays, and then my two to one non airing shows at night before bed. So it's all good.

To me its not about Marathoning its mostly about making sure a fansubber is going to complete a series and some fansubbers take forever((like ray=out) to fansub. Mostly its about storing it for convenience.

I'd rather wait till I have the whole lot before I start watching. The exception are long running series like One Piece.

If it's a short series anywhere less than 20 or 30 episodes, then I'd rather wait for it to end. Then, I can encode it for my portable/phone and watch it on a long trip.

I don't if the show will be over 30 episodes. Because if I watch a show over 70 episodes, well I'll ba damn to see that I still have a long way to go.

I don't think its practical to watch 26 episodes in one go. But, I sometimes do that over a period of a few days. Depending on the anime.

Yes.

I don't watch Currently Airing Anime because I hate waiting 1 week for a single episode to show up. I wait until it end so that I can watch it by marathon.

No,

Because then you have to wait for new episodes to come out..

But instead you can wait till it's finished and download all of them :)

EXCEPT FOR GINTAMA!

I want to watch it now but it STILL hasn't finished airing since 2006 >.>

Yeah, I rarely watch ongoing shows with any real consistency. The recent exception is Valkyria Chronicles. Being only a recent advocate of anime, there's still plenty out there for me to watch while the ongoing shows march steadily toward their climax.

Yes, simply because I hate waiting the week if the anime is good. Prefer to marathon anime, than watch in small amounts. I'd rather watch heaps at one time followed by nothing, than watch an airing anime one episode/week.

I have short term memory when it comes to anime, so when I actually bothered to keep up with the only anime I've ever watched to date in real time (Higashi no Eden) I had to keep going back to previous episodes to remember what had happened lol. That sucked pretty bad.

I try to watch them every week because I can't wait to figure out where the a series could be going next. However, I don't mind having to watch a few of them at once because I usually don't have time during the school year to keep up with them on a weekly basis.

I really like finishing most series the day I start them so I prefer finished series.
If I like a series a lot I may try to watch every week one episode,but I am not really patient =D ,so I 'd rather wait until it ends ^^

Awww man, it might be nice to be able to wait, but i just could not! The main reason being One Piece!!! It has been going for 10 years and the crew has only just completed the easier side of the grand line it will be going for at least another 10 years, who could wait that long? D:

No, i could not do it! Too long to wait, and good anime is to addictive :)

Usually I do. Simply because I like to watch a whole series in one shot. Plus, it really sucks if the series is really, really good... And you have to wait a week for each episode. I am, however, as guilty as anybody else of starting a series that is still airing...

I do make sure that if I start an airing series, it's at least this far along...

Normally I would Wait for them to finish airing, but Lately I seem to be multitasking a bunch of airing ones that works efficiently, and one that's finished just in case if theres no new episodes for a little while

Yes, I wait after the anime finished airing. Waiting for the next episode to be released somewhat ruins the momentum of my watching.

Depends. If I feel like watching, then I'd watch whatever episodes that have been released. But I prefer waiting.
