No, I don't indiscriminately watch anime simply because it is an anime, I watch because it looks like something I'll enjoy.

There's really no point in watching the shittier shows just for the sake of it.

Most anime below 7 rating is a no go for me. I take pride in the fact that I have completed most of the highly rated shows on MAL above 8 rating.

I know I will never reach that level in completed anime or in days watched simply, because I only watch anime that interests me and ones that don't then I don't watch them. Also I tend to now only really watch seasonal anime now over already aired anime and over the last few years I have watched less and less anime each year

Forgetting stuff is pretty normal, people are acting as if their perception of media never changes. So yeah, nothing wrong with watching tons and revisiting whatever you give priority later down the road.

I mean that guy allegedly has 300 more days of anime watched than I have and 5 more years of being alive compared to me, so I'd say my game is not up to par.

Then again he has Doraemon set as 'completed', which to me is the ultimate sign of an account not being legitimate since only a fraction of the episodes of that show are even available on the internet. So I just assume that's a bot account.

That doesn't tell you anything. I set the Pokemon seasons at completed as well, although I have seen like half of every season and don't bother with the rest anymore. I neither want to have them in my watching-list forever nor dropping them.


I mean that literally tells me that such lists are not legitimate because they include stuff they haven't actually seen. A list doesn't have to be botted to be illegitimate.

Tbf even I have Doraemon as completed though I surely didn't watch all of it. I mean, it ain't legitimate to call it 'completed' but I did watch a lot of it and don't feel like putting it on hold or watching or dropped. This dude probably did something similar. Also, I can't see why such a bot account would even exist.


well, idk why either, but it's a fact that there are dozens of bot accounts out there who just add almost any title from the whole DB, including ones that are impossible for them to have seen because they are lost media. So it's definitely a thing.

But as I said, even without botting a list becomes illegitimate when you add 1700 episodes of Doraemon because you've seen a small percentage of the show. *shrug*

Oh, should I? He's got more anime in terms of sheer quantity than I have ever completed movies, TV shows, anime and video games combined. And here I thought I was doing things right watching shows I enjoy and ignoring the ones I wasn't interested in. So, kind sirs with over 5k finished anime, do I start off with watching 3-minutes long music videos or is it better to mark a huge amount of shows from the previous seasons as "completed" at once? The legend has it, I will be granted with extensive knowledge of the very essence of anime cakes and everyone on this site will treat me as a deity. Also my list will look cool AF.

Okay well then. Better like this? lol you can put stuff completed without the full numbers.

Many people don't care if it's legimate or not, because they don't care about the day watched-numbers and aren't that accurate.

Some people don't seem to realize that the guy genuinely loves and enjoys the shows he watch. Just looking at his profile, he's been here since 2009 and got a really high mean score. I'm sure he doesn't watch anime just for the sake of boosting his numbers.

So I was just scrolling through the site looking for things and I happened to stumble across this dude's profile---> https://myanimelist.net/profile/_thiagobrisolla

He's got OVER 5000 anime completed! Like HOLY SHIT! I thought it was a bot at first before I browsed through his lists. I mean i thought I was a fucking weeb but goddamn there are some HArdcore anime fans out there. Are any of you even close to achieving this level of madness or even want to?

Clearly you have not met the legend that is https://myanimelist.net/profile/spacecowboy

I had considered it pretty standard to have a couple hundred completed. If I saw someone had a few thousand, they were worthy of praise. This guy is a damn badass. Even more so if he's as old as he says in his profile (90yrs)!

There is that one guy, Stark700 (link https://myanimelist.net/profile/Stark700) whom i know as a person who is first to make episode threads on many shows (115K+ threads wtf).
Not only he has 600+ days spent on anime, 1100days+ on manga but also when you go to his stream profile through the banner you can see that he plays games ¬80-100hours per 2 weeks. I havent seen anyone who would bend the time and space as much as he does with those stats!

I think I have too many other interests (music, video-games, books, non-animated tv series and movies, etc) to ever watch that much anime. I just watch whenever I'm interested, sometimes I'll take a break for a few months and then return.

I'm here for fun, basically, and I'm not always gonna be willing to torture myself with completing anything I can't stand (still can't believe I actually put myself through the painful journey of finishing Bloodivores). I don't wanna burn out on such a great form of entertainment any time soon

Though I do like anime, too much of anything is bad. Besides, quality over quantity. I'm not gonna watch some mediocre-bad show just for the sake of numbers. I want something good that'll be remembered for how amazing it was.

most users that have multiple thousands of entries have faked a lot of them. they love when you make threads and comment on their profiles sucking their e-peen. make sure you keep doing that.

Well, I've completed 156 in about 3 years. But I didn't watch as regularly at first so let's assume last years rate will be the standard.

I completed 65 anime last year. So for my list to reach 5000 I would need to watch another 4850, which at 65 per year would take 4850 / 65 = ~75 years.

So I would need to live until I'm 108. Unlikely.

I'm always wishing I could make more time to watch more anime though. So let's say I do that and complete 100 per year. Not unreasonable.

At that rate it would take 4850 / 100 = ~49 years. Living to 82 is achievable.

So maybe. I'll revisit this should I achieve my goal around the year 2071. See you then folks.

No I have a life and I don't want to watch anime that I don't enjoy just so I can boost some arbitrary number up.
This is not a video game.
I'm also sceptical when it comes to people with insane amount of anime watched, cause anyone can claimed to have seen anything even when they haven't.

I have seen users with more anime than him:

2,487.4 Days
14.9K Anime

That's clearly a fake list way boosted compared to reality. Not because of the number of anime mind you, but because of parts of his list that are extremely doubtful to be real.


As for getting on someone levels, I dunno, sitting in front of anime videos is easy. Try reading LNs and japanese novels instead. Directly in Japanese even. Then we'll talk ;)

Well, An 8.9 mean score with over 5000 completed anime is kind of unbelievable, also he just wants to make anime List bigger and bigger by adding hentai and every ova or special he watched. I'm pretty sure I will have more than 400 hundred completed anime if I add every Hentai I watch.

1- No, I don't have that much time in my hands.

2- Sometimes it's just pure lies, sometimes the guy didn't even watch the whole thing, just added to the list and marked completed, but I don't doubt that we have some people with that much free time. I really doubt the guy has any form of social interaction and barely leaves his home in order to achieve that much completed anime without being a scam list. His life is none of my damn business though, so whatever.

3-Maybe he lives out of it. I don't know maybe the guy you linked is a Brazilian Anituber and lives of reviewing etc.

4- Even if I had so much free time to watch anime I would prefer quality over quantity, 5000+ completed anime which means probably at least 4000+ anime is of terrible quality, that's all about tastes though.
I wouldn't go through the mental torture of watching that much trash content.

Not really, in my eyes. At least I don't want them in my drop list. These are just series with a lot of filler / episodic stuff and since it's actually more an anime for little kids, I really don't want to watch all of it, but as long as they run, they are adorable to watch here and there. That's why I don't want them to have dropped and that's why I go with the mentioned option.

That is insane.

I've been watching anime since '89 and am just now coming close to finishing 750 animes. He must have some kind of job watching and reviewing anime or something. Because you can't possibly work and see this much. I'll never catch him. Not sure if I would want to, though. You've got to watch a boatload of trash anime to get that high.
