Since I don't watch anime on the computer and I use the Xbox crunchyroll app, When i'm done watching a series that I like, i'll usually put it on in the background and it will have my semi attention.

I can say that I am all around when it comes to this subject. I finished watching Elfen Lied for the first time about a year ago...and I re-watched it no less than 10 times in 2 months. All of my favorite anime I have watched multiple times...lately I have just been watching one new one right after another. Then there is the manga phase...where if I know there is more I read the manga as well.

I do not think that there is a right or wrong way to go about your entertainment...if you love it embrace it. If you don't move on. To hell with anyone else who has a problem with your choices.

No, I don't have this problem. It is a problem I would definitely hate to have, though. I shudder to think of all the animes I'd have never seen because I spent time watching one I've already seen. That's why I can literally count on one hand the animes I've watched more than once: Samurai Champloo, The Record of Lodoss War and Ninja Scroll. Those are the only ones and the latter two were many years apart.

With so much new stuff coming out I find it very difficult to go back and re-watch stuff. I have only done it a few times with Cowboy Bebop and First Squad the latter more for me trying to piece it together for a review.

I only rewatch an anime if a) I haven't seen it for years but I really loved it back in the day or b) it's gotten a dub that I want to check out. There are rare instances where I will rewatch a show within a year of first finishing it, but it is a very rare occurrence. Typically, I'm too busy trying to catch up with current titles.

So, I'm not really sure how to help you, mate.

I'm glad to see it's not just me! I have a whole list of anime to watch but I never get to them because I need to watch Darker Than Black, Fairy Tail, Soul Eater, Blue Exorcist, and Eden of the East again for the 100th time!

I don't get to attached just because it's in my nature to absorb as much information as I can. Which usually leads me to watch as much anime as I can and do it as fast as I can. I burnt myself out and haven't found any anime in my backlog to actually watch (and finish) yet. Though, sometimes I'll re-watch some episodes of something I already finished because I kept thinking about it.

Someone else already said it, and I'll echo it. I wish I could do that. I've seen so many anime it gets harder and harder to find something I want to watch. I only ever experience an anime once. Even Clannad (arguably my favourite anime since every time I think 'top 3' Clannad comes to mind first), I have only watched once. But then I don't think I'll ever re-watch Clannad. I think it was a special experience to me that I will think more fondly of if I only see it once. But yes, I would love to be able to enjoy re-watching an anime because it would help fill out that 'Welp, that anime is over, time to spend 1-2 hours searching for another'.

To anyone who DOES have that problem, one thing I do is I have a Microsoft Word document. On it I write down my shows to watch for the season, OVA's and Movies coming out, and I have a 'to watch now' section. That way when I'm done with an anime I can check my 'to watch now' section and, assuming I came across any shows worth checking out while I'm currently already watching something, I can easily find it come the end of that show, and it saves searching around. It's like a mini anime library that saves me constantly referring to 'This season's releases' lists and all that.

Yup. This is me in a nut shell as well. After I watch an anime, if it is good enough, I tend to rewatch the whole series all over again right after. This has happened quite a few times. Last time it happened was when I first finished Steins;Gate in February. I was so impressed with the series, that I re-watched it all over again. XD

I also tend to re-watch other series every so often. I watch Baccano AT LEAST twice a year. lol I guess I am just crazy. XD

I really wish that from the second I started watching anime that I'd made a list of anime I've already seen, but I reached the point where I thought 'I guess I've left it too late' and never bothered. Luckily its never taken me more than half an episode of a show to realise that I've watched it before.

I've watched Inu Boku SS more times than I should ever admit publicly. I understand.

I do not have the patience to rewatch an episode, it's pointless bc you already know whats gonna happen
