i was in school today and a guy said that he has watched 800-1200 anime series. personally i think he is greatly exaggerating, he may have watched a lot but not that many. he is in grade 12 and i dont think he could have the time to watch that many, what are your thoughts about this

It's possible for him to have watch so many. "When did he start watching anime?" "How many are OVAs and movies?" "What is the average number of episodes of the anime series he's seen?" "Is he an anime marathoner, and does he spend most of his school holiday/break times watching anime?" "Is he tearing through both pirate and legit anime sites?" Answers to questions like those are important. Even when I was in high school, I could have easily squeezed 100+ anime movies, OVAs, and series in a single year. If he's about eighteen, just by following my highest potential and starting from the age of ten, he could have scored 800+ anime over the course of eight years.

That said, he may be full of hot air, too.

Just assuming he watched 800 animes and assuming they were all 12 episodes each that would mean he spent a total of 160 days worth of watching anime. I think it's possible for him to have watched that much if he absolutely no lifed it. Do I think he actually did? Hail no. Especially if he's regularly attending school and gets a decent amount of sleep every night.

Let's start with a generously low estimate for the number of episodes in each series. Let's say.....8 episodes a series, of 30 minutes each.

4 hours per series x 800 = 3200 hours as a general minimum for his claim. Not counting loading time, snack breaks, times that he has dozed off in the middle of an episode.

Yeah.....no.

I mean, it's probably not impossible. But it's quite improbable. Especially if he also goes to school.

He cant remember a lot of the anime name, he is one of the smartest people in school, he had time for a chess club not too long ago and i would make an average of about 15 episodes per series at about 22 mins each but i still dont think he could have done that

Of all the things to brag about. If he's telling the truth, I hope he at least watched some of it with friends.

Maybe he was desperately trying to get out there that he loves the anime via means of exaggerating his love for said topic and just wants someone to talk about the animes with... and maybe go to Akihabara with.

easiest way to find people interested in anime: go to an introductory Japanese class

It's like saying I can drink 3 bottles of Captain Morgan and not get a hangover.

He's over exaggerating.
