Of course I am not talking about when you were a little kid or teenager and watched speed racer, Dragon Ball Z, Pokemn, Yugio, Voltron, Sailor Moon, Technoman, Robotech or some other anime show as after school or Saturday morning cartoons.

I would have to say a couple of weeks or more.Its not that I get sick of it its just that sometimes I am not in the mood to watch anime.

I blame Bleach.

A month. All due to school work. Then I went anime crazy again after that break.

Probably 3 weeks when i went on vacation, but besides that a maximum amount of 1 week, because I need my One Piece fix every week xD

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

I dunno, a couple weeks maybe? I tend to go a lot longer without playing games these days, but I think I do recall once going "hmm, I think it's been a good two months since I last watched something", I dunno, never been long enough to really keep track I suppose. And I count reading manga as the same category so it'd have to be both not watching anime and/or not reading manga.

I would have to say no more than a couple days, sometimes I get through a series quite quickly, but even if I don't, I still end up watching an episode or two of at least one anime.

hm...not sure. Even when i'm not watching an anime everyday, always usually keep up with one or two currently airing anime.

Maybe a week once when i got Persona 3 FES, i played that game for like a week straight when i had nothing to do.

On average, 6 days per week. I only watch anime on Saturday and by that I meant, I literally spend 24 hours watching anime on that day exclusively.

Think its been about 4 days for me purely because I had an anime hater living n the house for a short stint.

It was better not to watch any than have him shout, "Get that Pish aff!!" lol.

hmmm... everytime, the longest would be a week or so, I guess
some of the reasons are:
school exams ---> no computer ----> no anime
sickness ---> my mom saying it was the computer's fault ---> no computer ---> no anime

But the really longest one was the twilight fever..... I think I did not touch any of my anime dvds and the computer (gosh... the COMPUTER!!!) for a month..... don't ask me what happened to me that time xD [oh how i hate edward >_<]

It's always good to take a break, I took from December to late April off simply because I was feeling burned out. Recharged my batteries and am looking heavily towards this springs season :D

Since I started watching completed anime on a regular basis, probably about a week when I was abroad. Since I started watching airing anime a little over a year ago, maybe a couple of days.

Years. I stopped regularly watching anime for a while at one point, then I got back into it.

Just recently, I stopped watching anime for about 2 months. The internet in my house broke down, and I was too lazy/dumb to fix it. It was like going into withdrawal...
Worst two months ever. I survived on food...lots of it.

I think I went two months without watching anime on a regular basis. I would watch one episode of a series to attempt to catch up, but then life would get in the way and I would have to take a break for a while.

about 2-3 months.

sometimes i'll just lose interest; due to a show being boring or just randomly and i won't watch any anime for a while. then an anime's synopsis will catch my attention and i'll start watching again.

I usually take regular breaks of a week from time to time, but once or twice I didn't watch anime for up to three weeks.
