Depends, do you mean the whole series of just one episode of every anime?

Think of it this way... If we assume the average number of main stream releases in a season is around 20, each having at least 13 episodes, that makes roughly 104 hours of viewing. Include, now, at least 10 or so OVA or OAD releases per season, and that's an additional 5 or so hours. If that's roughly 109 hours a season, that means 436 hours in a year, or roughly 18 days of watching (non-stop).

Assuming that this type of demographic existed for the past 5 years, that would mean 90 days of watching. For the years prior to that, let's make a conservative estimate and say that total viewing time for shows released was 10% less for each half decade preceding the last. This means that from 2001-2006, you would have watched only 81 days worth of anime per year. Working back to as far as 1950, that gives us approximately 645 days worth of anime. Converted to years, that's about 1.7 years.

And this is a safe estimate, take note. This doesn't include all the doujin or internet streaming videos that float about places like nico-nico douga or Y! Japan, and it also doesn't include special releases during comikets and the like. It also assumes that you watch continuously, without any break. Lastly, this estimate assumes all seasons to have at least 13 episodes, or a quarter's worth. By all means, this is a conservative estimate, at best.

Given the variances, I wouldn't be surprised if the total viewing time may stretch between 1.7 to 2.5 years, but I'm too lazy to work on the statistics to back that up. As it stands, if you want to reasonably do this (without any restrictions as to how to obtain vintage anime, at that), then you might need to take at least 5 years to do it so that you don't die in front of the television out of starvation or sheer fatigue. Good luck with that.

It`s probably not impossible, just very hard.
You`d have to have no job, not go to school, sleep very little and of course ONLY watch anime.
I would get very bored with anime if I only watch that, no gaming and the other stuff I do

I think it would be impossible..

it would require way too much time to watch it all + anime was created a long time ago.. you have to do a lot of digging to remain 'caught up' so to speak.

and it would be hard to watch something you're not interested in.

I'm sure you could, but then you would have no life. Besides, I don't know why you would want to watch EVERY single anime. There are some of them that just aren't good at all. I don't even have the mental capacity to finish watching a series I like half the time anyways. Life always gets in the way.

I am not sure, I wish I could but at the same time there are some anime's that I really do not like, and I am sure you and you're friends will have some shows that even if you could watch the whole thing you would not want to bother.

I guess its possible if u watch anime 24/7 without ever doing anything else

Maybe if you watch anime Near style--at least a dozen screens at once.

Clockwork orange style anime watching, so you can't even close your eyes, just find someone to use eye drops on your eyes so that they do not dry out... :P

It is possible, but having a very highly unlikelihood that it will happen,
What would heighten the probability would be if you are about 45-60ish and have seen every anime you could get hold off since you where a kid.

Of course it is. I've got through over 300 in about a year when I tried to watch loads. I'm almost at 450 anime done all together

maybe...if you got time, got no life outside your room and would watch just about anything in just about any genre.
