- How many shows are in your "planning to watch" list?
- What shows are they? (Give a sample of shows on your list)
- How long have they been in your backlog?
- Why are you not watching them right now?


Right now, I have around 125 shows/OVAs/anime movies that I will watch...eventually haha

I have shows like the 2 seasons of Sora no Otoshimono that I have yet to watch (still mad at myself that I didn't watch it while it was still on CR)
Gotta watch K-On and Rosario + Vampire and Arakawa Under the Bridge and Sankarea
Shows like that

I am pretty sure some of these shows have been on my "will watch sooner or later" list for 2+ years lol

I mean I do really want to watch some of these shows but damn, I just cannot find the time or motivation to go through these marathons


How about the rest of you?

I see titles of different shows around, but i try to focus on 1 show at a time. After i`ve finished it, or watched last episode currently out, i pick a new one.

I have approximately 20 shows on my "pending" list.
i.e. 2nd half of D.Gray Man, 2nd season of kore wa zombie desu ka, sankarea (loved the manga), and more. Ive also been planning on watching some older anime, like cowboy bebop.
These ones have been on the list from several months to a few weeks.
Reasons for not watching them: Time hates me, college full time, simulcasts, not always having a good source (ie dgray man), homework, etc.

Ill get to them, I promise!

I have quite a few in my back log. For an example, Shakugan no Shana season 2. I've only currently watched season 1 quite a long time ago, but still need to see season 2. There are a lot more, but I don't think I would be able to fit them all in this box

According to my "to watch" list in OpenOffice.org i've got something called PaniPoni Dash, Azumanga Daioh, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, something called Mnemosyne, and Excell Saga . I'm also supposed to be tracking down a copy of Shoujo Sect eventually.

PaniPoni Dash and Mnemosyne have been there so long that i've forgotten what they were even about. While i've been thinking about watching Madoka and Excell Saga for a year or so now. I don't remember when I put Azumanga Daioh on the list, although I assume it happened sometime around when I started watching Lucky Star . Shoujo Sect got put on when I was on a yuri kick, but since I haven't been feeling it lately i've lost interest in watching it.

I just don't have the motivation to watch any of them right now.

I've got 42 that I can watch entirely online legally, and 30 that are either exorbitantly expensive to get legally, out of print, or otherwise a bit of a chore to even find or watch. I'll work on the 42 first -- they're all on Hulu, CR, Funi, Anime Network, etc. Once I run out of those, I'll move on to the 30. That's stuff like Kaiji, Planetes, mostly older shows. I don't watch anything but simulcasts when I have school, so the only time I can make any sort of dent in the list is on my off-time. On the bright side though, I pretty much watch all the simulcasts that are interesting, so this list is very likely exhaustive, and will grow very slowly, if at all, while I'm working on it.

43 on my plan to watch list, although im quite behind on the shows that I'm watching at the momment.
Things on my list are Darker than Black Season 2 (saw season 1 years ago), Ergo Proxy, Chobits and Gurren Lagann.
I'm watching Steins;Gate, Sket Dance .. stuff thats airing like Hiiro no kakera season 2 and Sword Art Online, Tsubasa Resivoir Chronicle, Elfen Lied and GetBackers
Most of the shows are in my backlog because I plan to watch them (eventually) but usually I don't find the time and because I'm busy with school work a lot this year usually I just keep on top of whats airing as well as trying to watch a few series on top of that
Ehhh??? Ergo Proxys been in the backlog for about 1 year xD I think ive had Durarara for about 6 months too -_-.
I'm not watching them now because all my free time is spent in revision sessions or doing revision for my exams in January. Other than that I use my time to watch stuff thats streaming and a few dvds that have been backlogged for months I will watch them eventually ...
So much anime, so little time!!!

About 125.

Shows like Oku-sama wa Mahou Shoujo, Blue Seed. Mahoraba, Level E, Etc. The most famous on list is probably Madoka.

The longest has probably been on my list for more than a year now.

Not enough time in the day, unfortunately.

I plan to watch a bunch of stuff just haven't gotten around to it.

Accel World is a big one. I'm just so into SAO right now that watching another game anime is distracting to me.

Durarara!!! I've watched two episodes so far and it looks great. I wanna finish it and I know it'll be good so I'm kinda putting it off just because I know it'll be good. (If that makes any sense)

Ergo Proxy. I gotta be in the right mood for that kind of Anime. It looks good though.

Inuyasha: The Final Act. For starters I never knew they made one until a year ago. Also I haven't seen the original Inuyasha since my high school days. I feel like I gotta get familiar with it again before I watch the last series.

I have around 30 shows in my PTW list. (I try to keep the number low so that it doesn't get too overwhelming.) I've got a lot of shoujo classics and newer series like Fushigi Yuugi, Marmalade Boy, and Saiunkoku Monogatari. They seem like my type of thing, but they're just so long and I never find the time to watch them. Then I've got a whole bunch of magical girl shows like Fresh Precure and Splash Star, Magic Knight Rayearth, Tokyo Mew Mew, and Ojamajo Doremi, but these shows also tend to be very long, and I'm too busy marathoning the Yes! Precure 5 GoGo season right now.

Also have a lot of popular shows like the Kara no Kyoukai movies, Honey & Clover, and Kannagi. These have all probably been in my backlog for 2+ years too.
