How much anime do you watch?

Post by Chocola » Wed Jun 10, 2009 8:10 pm

To all of the voters out there, ISML wants to see how much anime you are exposed to. Remember that even we (the administrators) cannot see who voted which option, so feel free to be completely honest. If you are not sure, just estimate.

Stand-alone movies and multi-episode OVAs count as another series (Tsuiokuhen, Kite, 5 Centimeters per Second) while one-episode OVAs and movies based on a series do not (Elfen Lied OVA, Clannad OVA, Naruto movies).

EDIT: Ignore some idiots below and don't be afraid to tell us if you watched literally no anime or too much anime. Your votes are completely anonymous; there isn't a way to my knowledge to know who voted for what.

I used to average 3hrs daily(minimum), but now ever since ISML started - 30minutes a day, if I'm lucky.

If it where 2007, I'de say I watched over 150(I tend to stick mostly with 13eps series) titles, but 2008...perhaps 20 or so.

btw, those are some ridiculous numbers. Anyone watching 1-3 series in 365 days needs to gtfo of ISML. That's less than 1series per season. :roll:

Yeah, keep scaring away people so they won't be honest.

I don't want to believe anyone who found time to register and is voting in ISML, can't find the time to average more than 2-minutes per day watching anime~

What can I say, ISML turned me into a honest asshole.

Watching is interchangeable with 'completion' and vice-versa? If so, I know I've seen and completed over 25.

Okay guys, I've changed the options so you need to re-vote. I'd count watching half of a series as "watching," because the goal is to see how many characters you're aware of (from the series themselves), not to boast how much of an otaku you are.

Perhaps the better question would be, "How many titles have you watched featured in ISML." If It's just to see how aware everyone is of It's characters. And have a new one each year to see if the % of viewed series improves.

Depending what anime you're into, you could of watched 500 titles, and still not be familiar with half the contestants in ISML.

In 2008, there were 39 series I watched half or more of. It's a lot more if you count series I've only seen 1 or 2 episodes of.

Of all the series represented in the main ISML 2009 tournament, I've seen all of them to completion except for 7 of them: Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka, Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobits, Kannagi, Mahō Sensei Negima!, To Aru Majutsu no Index and To Love-Ru. However, I've seen at least one episode from all of those series and Index will probably be off the list sometime tommorow.

If you extend to series that didn't make it out of the Preliminaries, I also haven't completely seen these 5 series: Da Capo, Darker Than Black, Ga-Rei Zero, Gintama and School Rumble. I've still seen at least an episode of each and I'm currently working through Gintama.

If you extend to series that made the Top 100 nominates I haven't completed these 8 series: Hyakko, Jigoku Shōjo, Katekyō Hitman Reborn!, Kurenai, Rosario+Vampire, Vampire Knight, Elfen Lied and Kodomo no Jikan. Of those series I've seen at least an episode of each except for Elfen Lied and Kodomo no Jikan. I'm kinda familar with Elfen Lied so Kodomo no Jikan is the only series in ISML 2009 that I know nothing about.
A miracle that you believe in when you know it won't happen......... is hope.

Okay...That I can remember...in 2008, I watched Spice and Wolf, Vampire Knight, Rosario + Vampire, Geass, and I think Rozen Maiden. I can't remember if Rozen Maiden was in December or if it was in January.

I may have watched more, but I can't remember.

Talking about ISML I'va watched everything except for 3 series, like 6 characters.
So, I'm familiarized with almost every ISML character.

In 2008 I watched around 25. But this year if you consider series I watched more than half then I already have more than 50. :P But that's because I started watching more anime only around in the end of 2008...

To be fair...you where just getting into anime back then. Atleast you started consistently watching anime once the regular ISML season started.

I'm sure you're in the double digits for 2009.

If I were to estimate, I would say maaaybe a little over 50 series. The beginning of 2008 was still a time where anime viewing dominates most of my free time, while the forum lurking started in around March, when Seitenkan and ISML came in. I joined MAL on June and since then, I've tried to watch around 10 series a season.

As for ISML, I still have 4 series (BB, TLR, SC, AD, and KnK) that I haven't watched yet, resulting in 6 unknown contestents. The Touhou girls, although I've seen the OVA, are also hardly what I'd claim familiarity with.

EDIT: Forgot Azumanga

More or less, not really. I am getting more into it, but that wasn't until early 2009

Yes, but that's because I'm learning of airing animes and I have a goal to complet all ISML series before it ends.

I've watched...

Kuroshitsuji, Index, Toradora, 5 centemeters per second, Air, Akane (Yuhi's series), All three seasons of Aria, CCS, Fate/Stay Night, Kannagi, Nanoha, Kara no Kyoukai, To Love Ru.

And more.

I have a puppy on my lap so yeah...I got to go.
