The longest I've taken a break when it involves anime was 3 years. Before then I had really binged on a LOT of anime and I just got sick of it plus life got in the way.

I tend to rotate between binging anime, when I get tired of that, I binge Super Sentai, and when I'm tired of that, I find something on Netflix.

I take breaks to write my novel and to listen to music.

All the time. Sometimes I finish a show and a season ends and I just give up thinking there will be nothing new quite like it. That is less often now and not exactly what you are looking for - so...

The all the time thing really relates to when I rewatch an old favorite. The last time I rewatched one of my favorite shows that is fairly long (will keep it unnamed to prevent flames though it is pretty obvious which one I am talking about with my profile ><) - I dropped all my airing shows and thought that nothing anime related would keep my interest. This isn't limited to that one favorite though - if I marathon through a hype train show and get disappointed by it I'll take a break from anime, too (except for the opposite reason of when watching a favorite).

Taking breaks is nice. Once you force yourself to do something it becomes work.

I try to watch anime daily or read some good manga. If I want to become an animator one day I have to stay up on the new trends in the industry.

Yeah, this.

I have to take a break after a few hours at the very least, and play piano or something.......unless the show is really really good. The breaks I take are only for 15-40 minutes, though .

And as far as extended breaks from anime, nah. I'm too new to anime. This whole world is still too fantastical to me.

I have never marathoned anything as off yet as I just don't have the attention to watch more than 3 episodes back-to-back.

I tend to watch an entire anime series (or as much is available at the time) and then take a couple weeks break before starting another.

My best would be 50+ episodes in a day. Didn't take a break after that. If I ever have breaks it's because I can't be bothered to find good anime.

I've marathoned a few 12-13 episode anime before but had to take breaks after those.

I never do, I could literally watch anime or read manga non stop for hours or even days.

I tend to rotate all my interests.. but I'm trying to stop.. but it does mean that I don't get tired of things quite as quickly as people that binge marathon for a couple of years and burn out.
