I dunno, I'd consider having a life far better than being an anime expert.

Ya, the thing is though, a lot of people here seem to try and watch almost any type of anime for the sake of watching it. If I ever watched as many shows as this, I'd doubt I could stay invested in any of them.

...Dude, you should really see what people at anime forums watch. Most of these guys are amatuers compared to some people I've seen. Just take a look at this: http://www.animenation.net/forums/showpost.php?p=7358397&...

This is what one person watched in one day. He watches that amount rather frequently, and yes, he does have a job.

I mean, I even bothered to ask, and it seems most people here aren't watching more than a few shows at a time. Mewtwo is watching 10+ currently airing shows, but that just amounts to 10 or so episodes a week. You watch more than that.

Oh, I make no pretensions about being anything other than a casual anime fan. I probably could watch more anime than I do, but I like the balance I have now.

Not including the anime I re-watch or films, I probably average somewhere around 20 different shows a year, and I rarely watch more than one series at time. Heck, from January-through-late June of last year, Monster, Spice and Wolf and One Piece were pretty much the only things I saw - though that was mostly because Monster and especially OP are really freaking long. Aside from the occasional "eh, screw it, I'll give it a chance" choice like R+V was, I tend to just cherry pick whatever finished series draws my interest at that particular moment.

To a guy like me, 20 shows a year sounds like a lot.

I'm of the mindset that you should just watch whatever you want to watch however you want to watch it. If that's just 5 anime a year, that's cool, and if you want to get more immersed in the medium and watch all of the new anime as they air, that's cool too

And some of those ~20 shows I watched last year were pretty short. I don't think anything out of Kids on the Slope, Samurai X: Trust & Betrayal, Ookami-san, Mysterious Girlfriend X and Princess Jellyfish had more than 12 episodes.

Gotcha. I'm definitely going to tackle more than 5 this year, but I don't think I'll do 20. I've got a watchlist so I'm set for another anime to take FMA's place in my schedule.

@RevolverLink - Same here. Also, I'm not a stickler and I'm not afraid to start stuff I don't intend on finishing any time soon, so I'll happily pick up shows, and then drop them or save them for later. I also rarely watch new stuff while it's running. I'm seriously only watching the Mecha shows right now because I'm running out of Mecha. I had a whole list with over 30 shows, plus a whole mess of Gundam shows. Now I'm out of Gundam, and I'm through about half of the other shows. Basically, if I want my Mecha fix, I really gotta watch the currently running stuff now. Otherwise, I always wait until I really feel like watching it, which is usually long after its ended.

Well, it looks like I may not be finishing the Metroid manga...

Like pretty much every other manga I've ever tried reading, on various sites, after having no problems whatsoever for the first 5 or 6 chapters, my 3DS suddenly acts like it's incapable of rendering any images whatsoever, and I can't move on.

It wouldn't be so bad, but it does this for practically everything I try reading, on any site! (I honestly don't know how I've made it through Bleach so far).

The laptop & iPad are my brother's, and he's very picky about who can get on them, when, and for how long (Heck, he doesn't let anyone do so much as look the iPad for more than a minute, ever).

We also have a desktop, but it's slow as heck (seriously, it takes 10 minutes just to get the internet running on that thing).

The site was actually working again, so I managed to get through two more chapters of Metroid!

If you don't like how Samus is portrayed in Other M, you'll hate this. They have no qualms about mentioning Samus has PTSD in regards to Ridley, and even go as far as having her being a blubbering suicidal mess for 3-4 chapters.

Of course, it's not canon to the main series, but it goes to show that the idea wasn't created by Team Ninja, as some hardcore fans would like to believe.

Okay, I just watched the first episode of Attack on Titan. If that's the kind of thing I can expect from this show going forward, I'm all in. That was one of the best, and most intense, premier episodes I've seen in a while.

Ummm, I'm on episode 9 of One Piece, but I looked ahead on the official site, and after episode 13 of the dubs, it goes right to episode 30.

This website has every dubbed episode in the series.

Last month I was promoting it as the "Hidden eShop Gem of the Month" (my signature was related to it at the time, as well), and I haven't changed it yet.
