Who holds the world record in watching anime? Some guy from Japan?
I've watched about 7,000 anime episodes up to this point, just curious how much the world record holder has watched
There's gotta be someone autistic out there but I'm pretty sure he's not proud of it
Fuckloads more than 7000 episodes. Although I don't think anyone would be retarded enough to keep track of world records for something that stupid and pointless. I haven't heard of a guy who's watched most movies or live-action tv either.
did you not know that if you watch over 100.000 episodes of anime you live happily ever after with your wifu in Japanese heaven?
Nothing wrong with keeping a list for yourself. I just meant that no one will be interested to know who's watched the most episodes of some medium of entertainment that is as niche as japanese tv animation.
Aren't there some anime that don't exist anymore? Aired on TV, the drawings were destroyed, the tapes were destroyed and the cels were destroyed, only exist in the memories of the people who happened to be watching while it was airing? I heard there are some such anime. Pretty unlikely that a person would be lucky enough to catch every single anime that only was avaible once.
And, while most stuff we talk about should count, there are the expermimental stuff from the 20s, and also probably thousands of web animations made by single individuals that are probably impossible to come by. Some were possibly never published, and only exist on their harddrive somewhere.
You can never watch "all anime", that's impossible due to avaibility of some stuff. You could, however, watch everything on MAL, but they don't list all anime ever made.
>literally wasted almost five years of his life watching shitty chinese cartoons
Anyone remember anime expert? That old trip who said he watched over 300 series?
yea, that's one thing from 2006 I'm glad is dead.
autist gets thrown around without regard for its actual meaning all the time, but this was one of the one times where that wasn't the case
>mfw I'm a fucking pleb
~7500 episodes here and I'm not even close to this legend
>Mean score 7
That's quite interesting for someone with 6k animes completed
Some people delete things they drop from their MAL.
And if he can get through 6000 anime, he probably has a high tolerance for bad things, or enjoy other things than what most people enjoy.
Forgot to post pic to prove my level of autism
>not updating it after every episode watched
You know, there are days when I remember all we lost when megauplod and its friends were closed and I get a bit sad. I can't even imagine the amount of stuff that was uploaded only there by people who don't have the will or the possibility to upload it anymore.
But I also do not "drop" animes too.
It's really rare for me to drop any show (I usually stick with it until the end even if it's shit), and those few that I do I simply delete them.
There's no much of a point having a score system from 0 to 10 but drop anything that I think is 5 or less.
The way I see it, you could be an insufferable faggot that likes just about anything and therefore have hundreds of days worth that you've watched. While someone might have watched a couple weeks worth of stuff they actually enjoyed.
I'd say if you want to be cool on /a/, be sure to hate anything that is popular (especially SAO) and not actually watch any anime.
Completely forgot about that. Sometimes I remember that too. Never thought about it in the context of anime but there are probably some anime that were only saved there and certainly a lot of old fansubber culture. It is getting harder and harder for new people to get a genuine, early 2000s experience.
I also remember talks about taking care of older versions of anime. One example was Madoka, very few people take care of the TV versions. We are risking losing all understanding of where Poorfag came from, for example, because people don't care about taking care of the TV versions.
Didn't have much to say, but that was extremely interesting. I hope it reappears some day, if it ever existed. If it had English subs it probably exists somewhere in a fansub collection somewhere by an old anime fan. But I fear the physical fansubs may be disappearing from the world with people growing out of anime and throwing it away, or just natural loss from use.
If I were rich and lived the right place I'd become a fansub collector, traveling around and trying to get the history behind every individual tape. What generation, where they got it from, and I'd store it digitally.
The death of megaupload definitely meant losing something. I'm Italian and a lot of anime were uploaded there and only there, that day we lost a lot of dubbed old anime which a lot of people might not care about, but we also might have lost the only copies on the internet of those anime.
Oh right. And Italian dubs may even be the only source of anime overall. When I want to watch Yattaman I watch in Italian dubs on Youtube. To be honest I haven't looked for Japanese versions though.
But at least the dubbed anime is probably stored in an archive somewhere, right? So there is hope that it may one day be picked up and reaired?
The death of Megaupload is so sad. Everything lost.
>But at least the dubbed anime is probably stored in an archive somewhere, right
You know, I actually wondered about this. Do television stations keep archives of what they air?
>my rating scale manga *
>1-4 the worst
>10 perfect mumt read iv read this masterpiece why have you not
What a fucking moron. I hate people like this; that's not how numbers work you autistic shithead.
Oh, looked it up and I saw someone saying the same. That's a shame. But could be a good way to see who are cheating on their list at least, if they claim to have watched that their list is probably fake.
Now that I know that it doesn't exist I REALLY want to watch it.
Depends on the popularity, perhaps? At least some should be stored, but I guess there is a chance some have been lost too.
Apparently the English dub of Sotsugyou Graduation was never released in physical form, so I guess there is a chance that the English dub of that anime is lost forever too.
5 is the halfway point for me. I know that zero isn't technically there as a rating but if something is that bad I wouldn't even bother giving it a score.
For me 5 is just average, not really worth mention but if you're into that then you might like it.
There's only 400 or so worth watching? I just don't see the point in watching over 1000. I met this girl at school who's seen about 1200 but she hasn't seen anything really remarkable like Berserk or Kaiji. She was just a seasonal fag that uses anime as bgm while she played on her DS.
>There are people that don't watch 20 a season
>barely watched more than 200 series
>only came to 4chan for /l/ and /h/ back in the day
>migrated to /a/ for /l/ threads
>still didnt watch more than 1 series a year
>two years ago begind binge watching my way through the rec chats
>started watching seasons as well
wouldnt it be very easy as a 20-30 year old to have watched that many if you started around 14-16 and kept up seasonally + backlog inbetween seasons? Its not like episodes are long. Looking at my amount, which Ive barely started now in my mid-20s, and it seems like it would climb fast.

It's really easy to raise your powerlevel, just stay away from the long running shonen and kids shows.
If you aren't watching more than a few shows a season, well you probably don't really enjoy the hobby and should consider looking for something else.
I would argue that watching seasonal harems have less value for raising your powerlevel than other stuff. I think it would be better for your powerlevel to watch three semi-popular anime from the 90s than ten seasonal harems. Of course it depends on your general balance, if you have only focused on stuff from the 90s the ten harems may be more powerful.
But I'd argue that a person who have 100 anime of various qualities and genres from different periods of time would have a higher power level than a person who has watched 300 generic harems from the 2010s. The latter person may be good at impressing with listing a great number of characters in seasonal threads on /a/, but the former will have a much better idea of the history of the industry, how the art has evolved over time, different styles, and will in general know more about anime.
If you are watching 20 you probably have a good mix of comedy, SoL, action, sci-fi, comedy, and romance. As long as you are watching lots of different things that is what matters. There are never 20 battle harems in a season anyway.
Watching old series will keep that number climbing and the same rules apply. You should always have a mix of new and old across several genres.
3 minute anime count?
Unless it's something recommended or catches my eye (usually a season show), I watch 3 minute anime or stuff with a single 10-13 episode season. So my list is artificially expanded.
The fact that you think that everything modern = haremshit means your powerlevel is low. On average the amount of haremshit per a season is 1-5, out of 35+ shows. If you watch 20 seasonal shows you likely are more knowledgeable then people who watch exclusively out of season, since chances are you stick to genres you know. If you try to watch at least 20 your going to have to try stuff outside your comfort zone.
Moe is popular among anime fans and unpopular amongst normalfags. Why? Largely because they never give it a chance and would rather stick to "Mature, Serious anime" which is what 90's fags actually believe.
That's probably right. You are more likely to watch bad stuff if you seasonal anime than if you just pick classics from the past. And looking at the season chart, I see plenty of stuff that doesn't look like harems. Only really watch Phantom World this season, may pick up more if something gets popular. And harems are the anime I see talked about the most from past seasons. But even if you watch everything, if you only watch the newer stuff, you will be limited.
I don't watch a lot of anime, but I try to include some stuff that will have a great effect on my powerlevel. I go for the classics, things that interest me, and also some other stuff I feel will be important to get a good perspective on anime. Not too long ago I watched Ah My Goddess, and looking to see some seasonal filler from the early 2000s, because these are areas I'm lacking in.
Anime is usually a chore though so watching 6 cour episodic mecha from the 70s is not very tempting. Lots of work for relatively little gain when it comes to powerlevel.
The fact the only show your watching is Phantom World, literally one of the worst and most underwhelming haremshits this season proves that your an idiot.
If you actually gave seasonal stuff a chance, you would realize that the better anime are the ones that barely every get mentioned. "Classics" are shows that other people found good, it means your taste are non-existant, they are what other people want them to be.
This doesn't mean much though since you seem to not even like anime so I wonder why you bother to put yourself through watching shit you don't even like.
What's the deal with the Maze movie? I know it never got released on home video, but is there a reason for this? Did they lost it, or just didn't bother?
That's a shame, I fucking love that anime.
I only watch it because it's made by Kyoani, I actually made an exception for this because I knew I'd watch everything by Kyoani regardless.
I tried to follow seasonal anime one season, in winter 2011, and it was too much work for me, too exhausting. Didn't even watch that much stuff, should probably have watched Rio Rainbow's Gate and Fractale, to mention some, to get a better perspective of that season, but still. If I like it, I get more enjoyment from watching everthing in one go, and if I don't like it, it's gonna be hard to force myself to watch every week.
By the way, even if I limit myself to classics, still find stuff I don't like, so some sort of taste will there still be. There are also different levels of classics, Those Who Hunt Elves may be a classic, but it's not one of the super classics like Evangelion. And finding stuff that is not a classic in any way is actually a bit difficult.
And I do like anime, if I find something I like I can really like it. But a lot of the stuff I start watching is stuff I don't really like, so it feels a bit like a job to watch it.
According to some guy on the internet they lost the tape, nobody will ever watch that anime again.
If you have trouble putting aside ~10 hours a week for anime(20 shows), you are saying you don't like anime. You may like certain anime, everyone likes some anime, but you don't like anime. I honestly can't fathom why you would purposefully come to a board for anime when you have stated that its a job to watch anime. What are trying to achieve by making yourself suffer watching something you don't even like.
Its like saying you love video games when the only games you played are mario, pokemon, cod and uncharted. Its like saying you like music when you listen to songs on the radio. You just like whats popular and that is normal.
I may be able to put aside 10 hours a week for a while, but keeping it going for three months is tough. One accomplishment I have right now that I'm quite proud of is that I've managed to finish one anime each day for eight days in a row.
Watching anime is not a job, I do like to watch anime, and I like to know about anime, and filling my MAL, and talk about it. It's actually a bit similar to video games, I spend a lot of time on /v/ but I pretty much only play Pokemon Mario Minecraft and a few others. That doesn't mean i can't have fun talking about video games and follow the industry and defend Nintendo's honour. And what do I like, if not anime? I only browse the internet, and feel productive if I manage to watch some anime.
One important reason to watch anime is to take part in the community. By watching anime, I can take part in discussions on /a/, I can recognize cosplayers at anime conventions, I can brag about how much anime I've watched and impress people by mentioning anime by their standards obscure. Anime is a social hobby, and I think this is the case for a lot of people on /a/.
