Well i started watching anime at a time there wasn't the internet to keep track of everything you watch online like now. Been watching anime since about the age of 10 seriously so that's a lot of years and a lot of anime.

If you neither remember it or keep a record of it, how do you avoid accidentally starting to watch such a show that you've already viewed before?

I use MAL, went back and made my list a few months ago. I was really shocked by just how much I have seen, especially since other than maybe a dozen or so I put on there from my past, I only started watching Anime seriously only like a year and a half ago.

No we don't need to mention how you are still missing a chunk of shows...

I have a rule, you see.

If someone talks about the series I've seen, but I don't remember, the show was not worth remembering or listing.

Lists are for punks, fools, and shopping! They are not for Movies, T.V. shows, or Anime!

If the show did not impact me, I wouldn't dare suggest it to someone else! And why remember such a show? Why count down, write down, and waste memory space for such garbage?

I find no weight in the number of anime one watches! Only in the number of references one can use!


After another 20 years, you might change your mind. Things get blurry after a while, even with shows you love, so lists can help refresh your memory.

And on topic: I use MAL to keep track of things.

If I don't remember, what's the harm in viewing it again?

That, and shows are about 12-24-50+ Episodes, you don't forget them so easily. Even shows you do forget, you'll have an inkling of an idea when of remembrance when watching them.

There are few shows so bad, you don't remember. But if I'm not constantly talking or praising a great show, I probably don't need to remember the show. I know I'll never forget FLCL, Fist of the North Star, Mobile Suit Gundam, Samurai7, Trigun, Berserk, GTO, Ranma 1/2, and Dragonball Z.

So what if I forgot what that generic harem involving a Vampire Girlfriend and a Zombie Childhood friend? The main character wrestled bears for a living, and his older sister was super fucking rich and picky. He had no parents so he lived alone, and managed to be a rather cool dude.
But....it's so generic, it hurts. The only reason I remember it, is because I watched it with my little brother, and we laughed our assess off at the stupid the show had.

Watching: 31
Completed: 155 (71 series)
On Hold: 0
Dropped: 0
Plan to Watch: 401

I keep track with MAL, I made it to keep track of past shows that I want to watch at some point.
Since i'm there and waste away online at work I might as well keep track though.
Posted 3/10/14
Yea, I use notes on my iPhone, and I've seen 52 series
Posted 3/10/14

I don't keep track at all. Like most things in my life I guess lol.

I've never forgotten a show I watched. I may not be able to list it, but if someone talks about it or I see it - I'll know if I seen it or not.

Lists aren't my thing.
