Do you actually intend to watch everything you've put in your PTW list?

Or you just use it with an "anime I might give a try some day" purpose? Not really wanting to decidedly watch all of them eventually?

I myself use it this way. There is stuff I definitely will check some day, but most of it is just a "maybe" (and my guess is that this is the same for users with like really humongous PTW lists, with over 1k or even 2k titles), so it's highly likely that I will actually never watch some of them I've put there.

What about you?
Do you think using the list this way kind of "kills its spirit" somehow?

No, I don't use my PTW list as intended. Titles that I have there have been there for ~3 years. My real PTW is in the back of my head.

And that is exactly why you should always put into your PTW only shows that are not yet aired.

yeah I’m the same! I’ve got over two times what I’ve actually watched in my ptw and tho if like to get around to watching them i sort of know i just won’t. it doesn’t kill my spirit tho it just more feels like something that I’ll never be able to fully catch up on and I’m ok with that!

Yeah, that's why I put them on ptw in the first place.

I only put sequels that are from shows I am invested in, or shows that I plan to try watching the first episode within 1 week.

If one week passed and I still haven't watch a show's first episode yet, I'll remove it from my list.

I just put there shows that caught my attention in some way, I might not be interested in them anymore after some time and that's why I check my PTW once every few months and remove shows I don't think I'll watch.

Of course, that's what it's there for.

29/49 of my PTW has not yet aired (+ more that have only been in theaters/closed premiere). Everything that isn't are things i deem essential in some way.

Define what essential means to you and purge everything else. Some things are just hot during a season. Otherwise you can define it by it's impact on a genre, the industry, culturally, for discussion, elitism etc. Don't give into half ass reasons.

Yes. I intend to watch everything on my PTW. Otherwise, I wouldn't have add to my PTW. I went as far ahead as to pretty much plan on the general order of what I'm going to watch from the beginning to the end. (excluding not yet aired ones)

I keep track a list separately for any I might want to add to my PTW in the future once I hardly have anything left to watch and I still want to watch them.

I will try most of them if not all of them eventualy.
but watch them all? hell I'd be surprised if 1 third of them end up as completed. they're all animes I was like" ho this looks cool I'll try it eventualy and put it in my PTW to remember it".

Of course.

If I don't, then my PTW list is useless since I'm not using its purpose.

There are a lot shows i wanna watch that have already aired and are also airing so i dont have time to watch everyone of them but any series that catches my interest i put it in my PTW so that i will be reminded and come back to it someday.

I mainly use it as a reminder for titles i might be interested in but i definitely plan to check them out. Already checked off Bakuman last week. But my PTW isn't a priority. I usually only get to it i don't care for the seasonals or i'm just bored and don't know what to watch

For me it's like a notebook with titles to check out when I'm bored. Usually I just watch whatever catches my eye at the moment.

It's better this way.

My PTW list is more of a "Don't forget this show exists" list.

Yes, that is the whole purpose of PTW. It's easy to commit to it during holidays.

I think it might be realistic to keep about 5 titles there, but eventually it'll be more trouble than its worth. I just keep a mental map and if something slips my mind... well, that's not really a problem. I'll just make another search, which is probably more relevant to my current interests than something I thought would be a good idea years ago.

I intended to use it as the way it's supposed to be, but no, now I have it as a "remainder". I have a few titles there which I added back when I first joined and that was before I realized I watch whatever I feel like at the moment.

Whenever I see an obscure show I add it there, with every new anime I watch I decide which show from my PTW to watch next, I intend to finish all those shows even if they take years unfortunately the amount in my PTW just keeps increasing.

I mostly use my PTW list as something to scroll through when I don't know what to watch. There's definitely anime in that list that I'm definitely going to watch someday, but there's also plenty that I might not watch.

My PTW turned out in some kinda list as "Animes that I will never watch", cuz I never watch animes that I put there... idk I always lose my will to watch them after put there.

This is the reason I don't use the PTW feature; I have barely enough time to watch seasonals, so I'll probably never have the time to get round watching the old goodies on my PTW if I maintain one. It's taken me 3 months to watch half of Shinsekai Yori, bloody hell

Most of the stuff of my PTW list have been there for ages. I've not even actively been adding anything to it, because I've mostly just stuck with watching 1 thing at a time. I'll only decide what to watch next after I'm done.

I always keep my PTW small so I could actually finish it. Right now most of my PTW is just a list of unaired anime though, with the exception of Gurren & NHK

Anyway having a big PTW list feels like you're compensating for something...


Don't worry about being lame now, you were always lame anyway!

They are in my PTW because I intend to watch them. What I don't know is when, maybe I don't get to watch everything, maybe I do, the future is uncertain. But as long as they are on the list I'll consider them.

Do I intend to watch everything on my PTW list? Sure I do. Do I see me finishing my list any time in the near future? Hellll no. I'm constantly adding stuff to it that interests me and when I choose something random to watch, there could be a chance I could stumble upon something I added forever ago, forgot about, and end up watching it.

I currently don't watch anime and only read manga. But I do intend to read everything on my ptr list, when I don't know what to read I just close my eyes and stop on a random manga.
Go read the One Punch Man manga please, this awful adaptation by JC Staff is a disgrace.

Yes I intend to watch every single anime from my PTW list. I always watch all the upcoming anime that are on my PTW and for the other anime I usually make a poll with 5 randomly selected anime on an anime community and the one that has more votes is the one I watch next 😉

Most of it. I probably won't get around to EVERYTHING, and some things may not even be available outside of specific events or parks. The rest I do plan on watching someday, though.

Since I'm a curious type, I always end up adding a lot of obscure and highly acclaimed ones into my PTW as years went by. And also, I mostly watch anime in a slowish pace (it makes even worse imo). With that being said, I intend to watch all of my PTW, no matter how long it takes. It is one of my life goals--to complete my lists someday.

My PTW is bit of an enigma. Nowadays it mostly serves as a list of shows I should like in comparison to other shows I've watched, but for reasons unknown to me, never interest me enough to actually start watching.

Granted I have watched some of them off there. It used to be much bigger than it is.

Why would you add something if you aren't going to watch it?
