Do you have to be in a certain mood to watch anime?
Does the type of anime you watch matter?

Personally, I can watch Anime most anytime.
My only real restriction is I tend to watch more slow placed anime in the evening as I'm falling asleep. Something where there's not a lot of crazy action scenes or something like that.

Oh and I can't watch any horror stuff unless I'm with a group, else I get freaked by my own shadow. Eheh

Anyways, let's hear what you all have to say?

I have to be in a special mood to watch Bakemonogatari; or if something is especially deep (like Serial Experiments Lain) or emotionally engaging (like Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade). But most things I can just flip on and play.

I'll also sometimes go to sleep listening to Garden of Sinners: The Hollow Shrine or the last episode of Hyouka.

Well i gotta watch at least one show a day lol but i to watch at least 1 new series every other day along side the currently airing anime i watch.
I tend to watch more later at night cause i can focus more at a later time for some reason. The only times i stop is if im starting to dose off, have something else i want to do or if i get a headache since im really focused on what goes on during the episodes so i wont forget what happens.

Yes I to feel like it to be able to watch something, or else even the best anime will be boring for me.
I was in an anime slump this summer, probably becaus it was summer Then I started watching Eyeshield 21 and got out of that slump, but I did feel like watching some sport then.
Now I'm in the slump again and I haven't completed Eyeshield yet.
Just reading mangas now.

Hmm, think there's some typos in there, oh well, I'm too tired to try and figure out what I meant to write

For the most part I can watch anime at any time my mood only factors into which anime I choose to view.

For something epic like FMAB or AoT I have to either really really want to see it or be with friends to watch it. One of those mood things....so every Saturday I practically force myself to watch AoT even though I'm not in the mood for it - then end up loving the ep

Gintama is the one I can watch anytime at all times of the day. Night time is for slow lighthearted anime like Natsume Yuujinchou or Toradora. I don't get scared too badly but I'd keep horror anime to the daytime. Except Another, I marathoned that show since it was awesome!

And then there's shows like Code Geass and Death Note that I keep at bay like it's the plague. Not cause it's horrible but I must be in the precise mood for it, like really precise mood. To this day I still haven't finished them...probably never will.

As long as I am not asleep.

I tend to spread out re-watching my favorites, though. I have to be a little inspired to watch Angel Beats! or Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
