Yeah, I try to watch one or two really good animes at a time. I like watching it without having to wait. But for the really good animes right now like Clannad and Shana you have to wait for the new eps to come out. Dx I hate waiting.

So I always have a backup "complete" series while I am waiting for the new eps to come out for certain animes.

For some reason I find it really hard to watch more than one show at a time. I guess I feel like the shows would get jealous of each other!

Currently wrapping up on about 10 different series, most with different release dates so it works out.

I only like watching 2-3 at a time. I like watching just a few and usually one of them ends up getting me really hooked (I hope), then I just stick to that and blaze through it. Once I'm finished, I pick up whatever I left behind and finish those, then start a few more.

I usually watch between 8 and 10, but I hope to reduce that to 6 at most. I find it hard to appreciate anime when I have so many going on at once and have no time to think over what I just watched.

Usually 3-4, I don't like watching too much. Prefer concentrating on few series. Problems occur when the anime is currently airing :(

I like to keep it between 1 to 4 series at a time no more then that. Watching too many (sometimes even 4) I feel like it is taking my attention away from all the others. Now I watch between 2 and 6 episodes a sitting if possible.

With large series I like to do two at a time, but with shorter series I do from 5-7 at a time.

I'm watching too many at a time xD;
It's not hard to follow a few and I find it easier to watch an ep as the subs come out than to try to catch up on a series, especially if it has a lot of episodes...
I realize most of my backlog is series I fell behind... because of work I only watch 1-3 eps a day during the week...
slow subs also affect my watching list...

One at a time, I normally marthon the series. But I also start some series but put it on-hold for other series that I find more interesting.

this sounds obsessive but it really helps when i get into not watching anime slumps (they're not voluntary! ;_; ) and allows me to allot time better in order to juggle anime with my social life, school, and work.

each month i make a list of anime i want to see for that month. i usually keep the amt. of hours it'll take to watch it all between 40-50 hours, depending on how busy i know that month will be (like in april, my list will have less hours because ill be doing a lot ofwedding planning AND it's the last month of the semester AND a lot of super new anime/sequels will be coming out :3)

then, my goal is to have every anime completed on that list by the start of the next month. it's challenging sometimes, esp. when you watch an anime that progresses slowly, but by the end of the month, i usually have like 6+ titles completed. :) in my next month's list, i'll usually do a quick review of all the anime i've watched the month before.

i usually only watch titles one at a time but if i get a really slow anime, then i'll pair it with something that's a little more faster paced, and switch between the two.

marathoning anime shows is defenitely the way to go ;)

recently i've just been waiting for the shows that are airing to finish so i can finish them in one go, and the other ones i have i just watch when i have nothing else to watch. but soon i'll probably marathon a lot of shows because i'll be on spring break.

I watch a bunch, until I find one that grabs me and I get all obsessive about it, and watch nothing else.
Problem is, then the other shows get neglected. I feel guilt, but I Must. Devote. All. my attention to my true love of the time.

I do it with books too, but it's worse with reading because then I never go back and pick them up again.

I just desert them.... cast them aside to collect dust....what a horrible, abandoning, book-leaver, I am... =(

I think I'm watching 7 right now. Most of them have already been completely aired, too. I play favorites and just watch which ones I feel like/can find.

i watch 30-40 series at once, one ep per week unless there are fluctuations in the subbing speed.
my spring break just started, so i intend on watching my daily eps and then two series per day
yay, fun week for me

I watch anime one at a time because when I marathon it for a lot of episodes i might get bored and drop that series. I only marathon episodes when the anime series is really good or like I'm tryin to catch up or something.

It just depends there's a lot I'm watching currently but the main number I'm watching right now is five.


What you saw at the castle on that windy night ,and what you saw at the bridge last night .. how I smiled, never utter a word to anyone. If you dare speak .. I will find where you are .. And I will kill you. Kill you. I will rip you apart .. crush your bones And eat your flesh.. I will drink your blood. I will .. devour you.

Pretty ineteresting topic.

Usually I watch only 1 Episode in a row. After watching I am thinking of it, and so on. In a day I'm watching ~3-5 Episodes, usually. But when an Anime is very intersting, I'm watching it complety, if I have enough time. Well, Series? That's different. At the moment I'm only watching Zombie-Loan actively, but when I'm finished with this series, I'll watch more at a time... We'll see!

Sorry for my bad English.

If I am watching fansubs or something online or on tv then I'll watch several shows at one time. I really can't help it because of the release schedule. If I have the dvds I will try to marathon it. If it's a really good show I'll marathon it straight but if it isn't the best then I might watch other shows in between.

If we got 80% or higher let me know! :)

I like to start lots of different series but I'm rather slow when it comes to finishing them. So I always have 15+ on my Currently Watching list but some have been up there for months without me watching any new episodes.

I like to have a good ammount in my watching list so I can alternate, I don't marathon unless one is really interesting but still I try to mix it up.

I prefer to marathon all the Anime I watch these days, i'm the type of guy that will poke around on forums, inevitably finding out annoying spoilers, seems a nice way to keep my prying eyes firmly shut.

Right now Im watching about 4-5
Normally if i wake up in the mornings early enough to watch anime on tv it would be around 10. I dont wanna go overboard, just incase i lose track of the storyline.

Well it really depends if I'm excited about the series or not. Usually I do marathons, and if not my max is probably 3 at a time, or I'll forget important parts of the show ^___^"

I tend to stick to under 5 usually, but 10 is absolute limit. If I go any higher I start to neglect certain shows and eventually drop them in result.

I try to watch as little at a time as possible so I can get through all of them... But that doesn't always work out ^^"

I watch around 2-5 at a time. Most of the series I'm watching now are still airing, so I try to watch others.

I like to focus on just one or two at a time. Occasionally I will go up but no more then five. I just get confused after 5. Currently watching two but re-watching cowboy bebop since I already know mostly what goes on and am familiar with the characters and such.
