Watching more than one series at a time?

I start up many series and once I get close to the end of many I drop it unless it's just too good not to finish. I hate the feeling of finishing a show and that's it there is nothing left for me to go back to.


^ There is no way i could ever drop something before I finish it. It'll make me feel like the anime 'journey' was for nothing. How do you do this?

Wait wait... there are people that DON'T watch multiple shows at one time? how do you do it..

I am almost always rotating between multiple shows typically I have 3-5 shows plus the on going big two that I still watch I try to span it out so I have at least an episode a day from one of my shows that I can watch gives me something to look forward to when getting home from work.

Although I have to agree with chase on this one tommy.. granted I hate finishing a show as well as it is often bitter sweet and has prompted me more then once to jump onto the LN's of the series to find out more which might be a sign of being a bit obsessive but how in the world could you just not know? would drive me nuts...

haha believe me I'm more impressed by the people who watch multiple. For me personally I feel like it just takes away from the anime I'm watching at that time if I just dive into multiple ones at once. Apparently, that is a rare thing for me to do seeing how a lot of you guys on here watch multiple at a time lol I really didn't think a lot of people did it. Also I just really don't want to run out of good anime. I haven't watched a lot of anime recently but when I do I tend to go through a lot of series at a quick pace. I just realllllyyyy don't want to run out of good shows so I take my time. But mostly I have a major one track mind and can only concentrate at one at a time.

And in regard to leaving series unfinished, I'm glad we agree on this. I can take people watching multiple episodes of something at a time but to not finish an anime on purpose...IMPRESSIVE. You've gotta have some big mental power to do that.

Does it not ever get confusing though? Like say you watched one episode of something and you don't see the next episode of that one show until two days later because you had been watching multiple episodes of other shows. Do you not ever have the moment like 'Who is this character again?' or 'i didn't know that character died! 0_0' haha if this question makes sense?

If you stay up to date, you have 2-4 shows a night to watch. It's no different than watching more than one show on tv.

Exactly, all you have to do is know the schedule of the simulcasts.

I watch a lot of the simulcasts when they come out, as well as watching anime that have already been complete. So I watch maybe 3-4 anime a day.

I'm watching 22 different series for the 2013 season, and some things that are older.

I watch quite a few of the Simulcasts on CR and a few others that i download.(Tamako Market, Boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai and One Piece) so that averages out at 25+ episodes a week, i know the schedule so i don't miss a singe one. On top of that i am always watching an older show that i missed and is on my ever growing "To watch list". on my days off school i like to watch anywhere from 6-18 episodes a day. then when i have school i get to watch about 4-10 episodes a day.

I don't get confused as to the stories of each one. I don't have a problem with mixing up names( although i won't remember the supporting cast names until episode 3+). Unless i absolutely drawn into the show i won't remember the names after about a month it finishes. But with a show like Great teacher Onizuka ( my favourite show) even after a year since my last re-watching of it, i can still remember ever name.

with One piece ( second favourite) I can most likely name every character (Supporting as well) and give you a full rundown on every event that occurred.

The way i see it, if the show can draw me in an make me love the characters and plot, then i will remember it! if not then it will be forgotten over time.

i've only dropped a few shows but thats because the show was god awful, like utterly repulsive, or i will temporarily drop shows that give me excessive crap fillers *cough* Naruto *cough*.

It's actually a bit of a shock how not everyone watches multiples. haha. I tend to go from anime to anime, and Crunchyroll simulcasts are part of what implemented that trend for me. I never get confused about the characters, but sometimes their names are a tad difficult to remember in some cases, especially in new anime.

I usually... aw shoot, I can't say I do one at a time. I usually start several, watch an episode or two of a few, and if I'm interested, I continue straight through to the finish. Or at least I did until I started watching Space Bros... and then I was stuck in a container, but that's an inside joke, no pun intended.

So yeah, context switch. I don't remember character names very well even when I'm watching only one show, so it doesn't matter if I forget about them for awhile. I start to forget the longer I haven't watched something (I think that's how it is with most people, lol), but that can take awhile.

Can I watch multiple in the same week? Sure, but I prefer to get the full feeling of the mood of the show, so while I can and have watched multiple shows, I tend to stick with one at a time.

Watching more than one show at a time is the only way I can stand to wait for simulcasts. Also sometimes a show will get boring around the middle and I'll need to try a different show before I go back to that one. It isn't that hard though it's the same as watching multiple tv shows. I have my monday night shows I watch older shows tuesday then my wednesday and thursday night shows watch older shows on friday and saturday then my sunday night shows. It's fairly easy. Plus its the only way to really enjoy simulcasts on here. I think I'm watching anywhere between 10 and 15 shows right now and that's just on crunchyroll.

I have one series in my DVD/Blu player at a time and one on here I'm watching. I like to marathon shows. I don't like watching too many shows at once because then I start confusing them or it all turns into a blur. So I try not to watch more than 3 shows at once. I applaud those that can watch more than 5 shows at once and keep it all straight.
