>partial mainstream vidya backlog
>obscure shitty weeb vidya backlog
I didn't even watch Steins;Gate until 2015.
I waited for S3 of Shana for years, dating back to days when I could image dump the shana folder without recaptchas. And I still haven't started it.
I must ask, is the average person here the type to watch a shitload of anime and just play a littla vidya, if at all? I feel like I'm in too deep in both.
Oh mine gets smaller, but shit probably just goes on it faster than it comes off. I make progress. I track it. I'm fucking autistic. I've got notepads... computer type ones. Documents.
As in... an experience wise?
Around 4-6 months to finish going at my regular 3-4 hour a day anime watch schedule
But only If I don't end up watching 25+ show a season
None, I read manga during work and I have started to forget I even read some stuff after reading some 1400 titles
Around 15 months
Could finish it in 2 months.
My LN backlog is relatively small. Only stuff that I really enjoy. Even then I'm only trying to read one volume a month.
I kind of like it that way, taking it in over a much longer period of time.
I have read most of the translated LNs quite a while ago, now I just wait for them to end or finish the remaining untranslated volumes, I kept delaying reading Kawakami's LNs since they're so fucking huge, but that came to bite me in the ass since js06 translates fast.
Now the LN backlog is 100% made of OnC/Horizon/CITY/Hexenacht
A lot of my stuff just sits there unfinishe. Could finish in maybe a month or two if I didn't have to study so much.
I usually obliterate my manga backlog in two to four days every nine or so weeks, I update it every eight weeks so yeah
lol, never ever. i need to stop picking up games, damn it
I play around 2 or 3 at the same time, just finished Euphoria, half-way through Grisaia, and two routes competed in Majikoi.
Still have 16 of them in my backlog, mostly vns considered quintessential
Just started reading a lot more lately. I've completed four LN volumes over the last 4 or 5 months, currently reading spice and wolf
People keep wanting to finish their backlogs.
I cannot stress enough that this is the wrong approach.
1) Just watch what you want to watch. Don't give yourself any unnecessary stress through the impossible task of finishing your backlog.
2) Having a few shows in reserve is a great thing when you can't find anything new to watch for some reason (or if you can't download, for an equally unforeseeable reason).
3) Actually finishing your backlog only creates a situation where you have to build up a new backlog. Not only are you back to square one, but you also had to invest work to get there.
Take it easy. Remember to have fun. Smile when best girl smiles.
It's not that I hate having a backlog, I hate knowing there there are gems I'm not aware of in it.
Like my vidya backlog, it took me so long to get to Nier and Vanquish. And they were bloody great!
And I only just this weekend got around to One Punch Man. And I hadn't been following the manga at all.
Eh, it's there, but it's relatively small.
That and I hate picking up a book and seeing
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR (LIKE ALL OF THEM APPARENTLY ARE)
PEN NAME, EXTREMELY LARGE LETTERS
>I hate knowing there there are gems I'm not aware of in it.
Consider it a boon.
No matter how long you spend on this hobby, there's always something left that's worth discovering.
Due to the nature of my work, I often read manga
on my phonewhen I've got hours of time and nothing to do.
I actively go out and search for things to read.
Starting Kaiji part 3 soon, just finished FKMTs Zero works. PART FUCKING 3 WHEN.
Backlogs aren't supposed to get smaller. That isn't how they work.
You should be happy to add things to your backlog. I've run out of manga I wanted to read once and it was awful. Never again.
>complaining about a backlog on /a/ instead of getting through it
I don't even have a manga backlog, I just find stuff and read what's available. It's much simpler/easier for some reason than getting through an anime, so I don't really fall behind.
>Deadline for work I was meant to have started in December and should have pretty much finished by Monday coming up
>Shitposting on /a/ and /mu/ instead of actually doing it
>Wanting MORE backlogs
Books are even fucking worse because they take way longer than manga and arguably anime depending on the book.
Plus there are a shit load of good ones. Don't regret reading them though. Wheel of Time was basically anime, harem and all.
You seem to be confusing /a/ with your twitter account.
My dad finishes a book per week, except during the holidays, when he finishes 1+ book per day.
He's a fucking monster. He's turned his apartment into a library. Then he turned the room at his girlfriend's house into a second library.
He's got almost no space to live and he keeps buying more books.
Nah. Personally I have anime/manga/books/VNs/LNs/books/lifting/cooking all as hobbies and I like it that way.
Never get bored of them. I'll teeter around to each one (aside from lifting/cooking done every day). Watch a few series of anime, read a few manga series, read a book or a book series, play a VN, catch up with an LN, etc.
Feels good. Don't get burnt out that way.
>Not reading ebooks
Physical books are such a waste of space and eink tablets are objectively superior. Your dad still sounds like a cool guy though, plus some books don't have ebook formats.
>want to work through my vidya backlog
>look at steam library
>feel the need to try to hit 2k mmr
>don't end up working through it
At least I can consistently work through my anime backlog without distraction
>gaijin shit backlog
i thought entertainment was supposed to be fun
Backlogs in themselves aren't fun, but they should be used as an aid for your hobbies to never run out of enjoyable content.
I don't understand people who think their backlog is some kind of chore. Stop thinking of it like that.
I don't feel like I should be 8K or anything like that but I think the 1.7K bracket that I'm in isn't fitting. I'd say I'm about 2.5K at best, but certainly not 1.7.
I think the ranked system is a bit flawed in it's current state
