Hey everyone, just wanted to ask how you all manage your queue and keep up with all the anime that's released once a new season starts? Currently I'm still trying to finished last season's shows such as Erased and Myriad Colors Phantom World (Both of which I'm enjoying) along with the new shows this season but I feel like I'm getting overwhelmed.

Do you guys and girls watch anime daily or on weekends? And what do you prioritize typically such as new shows so you can be part of the discussion vs. your backlog of shows. Just wanted to see what everyone does to manage their queues .

I put my queue in order of when it airs. Followed by what I am currently watching in my back-log.

then further down my queue I have shows I intend to watch eventually in both order I wish to watch them, as well as in story/chronological order.

Usually I try to watch shows the day they come out, otherwise when I have the free time to catch up. I almost always watch newer shows before my backlog.

I watch stuff the day it comes out. Organization wise I have a backlog title on top then the currently airing shows in alphabetical order. I prioritize new shows over backlog (unless I'm like an episode away from finishing).

At the top of my queue: Shows I'm currently watching in order of my interest (most liked to least liked).

Next in my queue: My backlog (not really in any order).

Bottom of my queue: Shows that I have watched and want to rewatch. These I keep in alphabetical order so I can quickly find the show without wading through the entire Crunchyroll catalog,

I don't really organize my queue but I do delete shows after a while like if I know they are finished.

My queue is basically a ranking of the new shows I like from best to worst. This includes any from last season that I haven't finished. I tend to re-rank after I watch an episode. I am sometimes surprised at how different it looks near the end of the season. For example, I had High School Fleet fairly low in the ranking but after the first episode it jumped to number 2.

As for when I find time to watch? I always squeeze in at least one episode during my lunch break at work. Its those times that annoying co-workers try to be cool and stop by to be social that I start to fall behind. Otherwise, weekend mornings before I have to do other things.

I use this site and try to watch the shows I'm interested in daily. On days where there are a lot coming out at once, I tend to watch those I may miss then on the slower days of the week. Basically, I try to space things out so I have at least one new episode to watch per day, if not more.

The CR queue and FUNi queue also help for keeping track of episode progress if I stall mid episode and come back to it later. CR and FUNi also have lists/calendars to keep track of what comes out what day at what time for their service.

I've started having it so that whichever show I'm watching/want to watch is at the top. then the simulcasts in the order of the day they come out. The rest of the list is in no particular order, I just scroll through and move whatever it is that I want to watch to the top.

First put a bunch of anime from the current season in the queue. After the season is over, everything I watched completely gets removed and everything else stays as part of my backlogue, Rinse and complete with the shows that I enjoy from the season at the top of the queue.

I usually get around to watching the backlogue in the summer when i have more time away from classes.

I usually spit hot fire at it. It goes away very quickly that way.

anything i put in a queue, there's a good chance i won't start watching until several months later at the earliest.

I'm doing it similar to Yamstarch. Current new episode releases first,
followed by a favorite anime series that I'll be following up on, then work-
ing my way down the list until I've got 'em all.

I really try to watch shows the day they air so the only ones I have in my queue are the ones I either don't have time to watch now and want to watch during the breaks OR older shows I recently discovered. I use the top and bottom of my queue for the shows I most want to see as those are quickly accessible and tend to put in the middle old favourites I may want to revisit.
