So when I tell people I watch anime, I usually try to avoid saying how much I watch. I'm by no means ashamed of being an otaku, but it is a bit embarrassing when I compare the hours I spend on crunchy to what people spend on "normal" hobbies.

Currently I have about 15 ongoing shows in my queue that I keep up with every week. I also usually have one completed series that I watch on the side to fill time. At one point I was up to 24 ongoing shows , but that didn't last for more than 2 weeks.

Am I reaching a point were I watch too much anime? I don't have many friends that watch anime, so I don't have much of a baselines to compare to. My opinion thus far has been if it's not affecting my health or ability to work/study, it can't be much of an issue. What do you think? How much anime are you watching?

You can never watch too much anime, more just keep coming out.

Plus, I can't even find the time anymore to watch anime on a daily basis- Be glad that you're so lucky.

Now that I'm watching Revolutionary Girl Utena to write a paper on it for a class, I don't think anyone can criticize me for watching a lot of anime each week.

It's for school!

As long as you still have friends to sweat you over how much Chinese Cartoons you watch, I'd say you haven't hit the "too much" category. Ask people how much time they spend on Netflix and watching TV if you want a good comparison.

It's only too much when you watch anime for more than 24 hours a day.

About 3 hours a week and I don't spend the 3 hours all in one day. More than 5 hours a week would be too much for me. I've got other commitments to attend to.

Spend your time however you want. Life is fleeting. just manage your work and family and no one cares how much of your free time you devote to your hobbies.

I'd say that watching literally EVERY seasonal anime, including shows you actually dislike or flat out hate, is ''too much anime''

If it interferes with your day to day life, such as work or school, then it's too much.

If it starts to negatively impact your life such as making you forget important obligations, then it's too much.
