How much Anime is too much?
Posted 3/31/16
So it just hit me; I've been watching anime for a good long time now, probably 4-5 years and it seems I've watched nearly everything worth watching within a broad spectrum of personal tastes. I've been keeping track of everything I've watched... and it's a lot! Erm 500 individual series to be exact--give or take a maybe 10 due to sequels.

How much anime have you watched and do you feel it's either too much or not enough?

As for me, the season is ending and we're moving on to the next. I've watched a ton of anime and in retrospect it's probably a lot--more than enough--but I'll happily keep watching more!

Oh definitely! Apart from that in overall quantity you can never watch enough anime IMO. Still people I talk to that don't watch anime say it's a lot--but that seems semi-hypocritical when most people nowadays probably watch a near equivalent in regular television, YouTube videos & movies. YouTube is probably the biggest offender when is comes to life interference I've seen talking to people online.

This pretty much, I'm 25 I've been watching anime for as long as I could remember. As a child I never grew out of cartoons and I just kinda shifted into anime. The first real anime series I fell in love with was Tenchi Muyo back when it aired on Cartoon Network after school in "98-'99ish. I enjoy anime but I don't keep track of what I have seen. Back when I was young you didn't really have an option to watch anime online. You either watched it on tv or bought it.

Lucky for me I had a older cousin who collected it and always lent me anime. I watch anywhere from 1-10 series a season. I try and watch everything that's new till episode 3 and I start to drop what I dislike. I thought about making a list but there is no way it would ever be remotely accurate as by this point I dont even recall the anime I seen 2-3 seasons ago just the characters. Could be 500 Could be 1000 Could be 1500 I have no clue at all but I've watched anime for a good 16-17 years.

When you become jaded.

When you lose your job, become bankrupt from spending money on anime that you can't spend on anime, etc.

No such thing as too much anime. As to how much anime i've watched not really sure, a good amount.

When you realized that you have about ten shows on backpile and don't have the time to watch them all.

True. I lose a lot of sleep watching anime late at night.

If you ever feel like you've watched too much anime, you need a break. Although, that's not to say you have to stop altogether.
