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

i go through and clean my lists if needing like once a week. im very picky about everything on them. I've cycled through a lot of things i really wanted to watch but then said nah after a bit more info like the Clannad series and steins gate, monogatari series etc.

so far i think my PTW is pretty solid on things im actually going to watch (some have been on mine since middle school though....we'll see) but there are few that are more check-out rather than watch.

idk about other people but my MAL is really reflective of whats happening and exact on my updates. I use Baka-manga as well as like a second log for all my manga too cus im paranoid about having an exact log on what im caught up to.

Yes and no.... Most of yeah, I intend to watch of course. But a lot of the stuff on my PTW list is stuff I actually know nothing about; a lot of things I'll just add based on a loose recommendation or a stray positive comment someone says about it. Some stuff on my PTW list I'll continue to grow interested in and eventually watch it; other stuff I'll just let sit there due to lack of motivation or just not in the mood for that type of show. Then I'm too lazy to go through and clean up all the shows I've become disinterested in. So I guess they'll just sit there just in case I truly do run out of other things to watch.

Unlike many people out there with 50+ anime in their PTW I don't put that amount of titles in my PTW, well there are 2 reasons first is that I do a lot of research before putting something in my PTW and secondly I don't put too much stuff in the list as it doesn't make any sense.

At the moment, yes. Although, some things will probably get deleted from my list eventually because I'll change my mind.

My intention is to watch all the animes in my PTW list. I often check my PTW list. If I find I have put some useless animes I remove them from my list .

As of now I do intend to watch everything in my PTW list. Whatever I watch depends on my mood.

I will eventually check them out soon, I just have priorities and all that's stopping me from doing so.

I intend to watch everything on my list, but I don't think that's going to happen. Maybe someday when I have time and there are no seasonals I'll get involved with.

the only shows i put in my ptw list is the ones that haven't aired yet so MAL can notify me when they start airing
i don't have an actual ptw list, once i finish a series i just move on to any anime that comes to mind

Wait, the PTW list is meant for planning to watch shows? O_o

I only have a few anime in the PTW list but I will see them in the future, when I have some extra time... And mainly I add animes with difficult names to remember.

Well, all things are doomed to perish one day.
That day happens to be today.

I avoid using my PTW list because I've come to the conclusion that I'm always just gonna browse MAL or ask a friend for a recommendation when I'm not watching any anime.

When I DO use it, it's mainly for shows that haven't aired yet or for shows that I'm dead set on watching whenever I've finished a show.

But generally, my actual PTW list is at the back of my mind.

At one point I did but not anymore. Half of them I'm not even interested in because my tastes have changed greatly. I'm just too lazy to go through and delete everything I don't intend to watch.

Yes. I'm serious. I genuinely want to watch ALL the anime in my PTW. It's just like going through all the movies that I have to watched throughout my life.

There are times where I realized that I chose the wrong animes to watch and will just remove it.

Help, I'm hooked into the Fate series (not all) and am obsessed with Shirou x Saber!
Also, forever hoping for a ufotable remake of the Fate route!

Thankfully, I don't have many shows in PTW which have already aired yet I'm bored to watch them...

Basicly, I put those titles whom I found interesting but there are chances of me forgoting them. I usually watch them and keep it small with only those titles whom I really going fo watch.

Yes but I have a feeling that I won't watch everything. One the other hand I have shows I want to watch that are not in my PTW.

Honestly, I don't think so.
Some shows have been sitting in my PTW for years and at times I even remove some anime from it. I hopefully will watch most of the anime on it but probably not all of it.

Yes, I do. Otherwise, it wouldn't be called "Plan to Watch" 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?

It's not as though once a show is listed on your Plan To Watch list that you are required by law to actually watch it.
People change their minds. People's tastes can change over time.
Circumstances can change that drastically reduce one's anime watching time, so narrowing down which shows you still plan to watch could be a thing.

The "spirit" of the list remains intact. At the time you added a show to the list, you intended to eventually watch it/check it out.

You're never too old to watch anime.
If I ever stop watching anime, check my pulse I'm likely dead.

I wake up with coffee & anime, I go to sleep with coffee & anime.

Sorry if my sarcasm is bad, it's not my first language.

If time were not a factor, I'd hope to watch all those and more. I know that, realistically, I'll never find the time to watch everything on my PTW list.

Do I intend to? - Yes, absolutely; Can I actually do it? - Probably not.

A man can dream, at least...

Yes, especially considering that I own the majority of my PTW list in physical form.

Yes, in my case. I add the 1st anime entry from ~40 different franchises I'm about to watch when I do a plan to watch list. Then I won't add any old anime to that list before I have watched everything in it. When there is no old anime in the list anymore, I add ~40 new anime franchises again. This may take even 3 years, since some of the franchises are big AF, but at least my PTW list is used as intended.

I add the regular seasonal shows every end of the season so I can browse the seasonal list better.

I actually do I'll never add something if i feel like I might watch it. I have to feel 100% sure, i don't want my PTW list clustered with anime I'll never get round to.

Well yeah I do, but it might take a while because when I watch an anime that I really enjoyed, I'll look for anime that are similar to that one instead of going to my list and looking at the PTW section... :/

Short answer: No.
Long answer: It's just there to be there on the slim chance that I'll actually want to watch an anime that I haven't seen already.

Not really, I use my ptw list for any series that I potentially might see as interesting, I will add it to my list. Then I will watch a couple of episodes and if I do not like it, it gets deleted or I add it to my dropped list depending on how far I get into it.

I'll probably never watch Himouto! Umaru-chan. Dunno what I was thinking. Based on the clips I've seen and Demo's review I hate Umaru as a character.
