That is literally actually impossible. There is always more entertaining anime to watch that one has never seen before.

That's funny. I have over 200 shows to watch

My backlog is easily 800-900 hrs. Do I watch the most hyped ones first or save them for last?

I made a rule that I wouldn't add anything new to my list until I'd cleared the current one.

Since then, I have added over 20 series to the list.

Three from the first series, the two new Z ones with Beerus and Golden Frieza, and a movie that somehow related to GT or something.

How "Nisio" is it? I've been avoiding it, I think he's an awful writer. I've heard good things though, but I also hear good things about Monogatari, so...
>>
Of course not. I'm in a low enjoyment phase right now, so I'm not going at it hardcore.
I dropped Erin, and it was a load off my mind because I felt bad putting off watching it everyday.
Still watching Mokke and Shirokuma Cafe, and I'm pushing myself to finish the first season of Love Live because I only have two episodes left.

You did, it was at the Q and A thread at ANN's anime watching challenge. This is the asshole that thought "lets add Katanagatari to the list of shows". It might be forgivable if there was also TV Berserk and not just the movies.

the fuck is wrong with you? At least finish Nodame Cantabile!

Here's my current backlog lined up, currently watching B Gata H Kei which is pretty funny.

>>133661973

Finish Nodame Cantabile then watch Katagatari afterwards, pace it and watch an episode a night.

>>133662474

You can't really go wrong with choice there, I'd say watch Sora no Woto, Planetes if it's not the manga then just wait for the hard cover coming out next month, Spice & Wolf, Ashita no Joe and I Am a Hero would be my picks. Homunculus is also good reading, reminds me of Urusawa's works in some areas.

I'm re-organizing my anime backlog. For now here's my comic backlog.
>>
>>133664113

My mistake, wasn't sure if you'd mixed in your manga backlog with anime backlog why isn't Glass Mask there?

Also you can drop Reborn! unless you're reading it for some guilty pleasure type thing, the pay off isn't worth it but at least one arc was fun. Read Psyren if you want a nice shounen.

I suggest the Medaka Box manga over the anime. not even a "manga is always better" faggot, but medaka box just completely stops at the end of the season. there is literally 0 ending and leaves just an empty feel in mouth. the series is really enjoyable though and has decent ending

The fucking thing is growing by at least 3 or 4 shows per week, and I usually only finish 1 or 2 a week, so I don't see any end in sight

It's less a backlog and more like an infinite hold pile. I've started all of them, and just said I'll watch them later.

Arent RAIDs more detrimental than just normal backup hard drives?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Dude, I have like 500 episodes on One Piece to get through if I'm gonna finish my backlog.
>>
>>133665356

Can be, but RAID 1 can usually (depending on the controller) be split into individual drives. Most controllers treat RAID 1 as multiple independent drives that simply copy each other, so they can be split/moved to new systems as needed.

I was done with my backlog during summer.
But now I've downloaded shit ton of shows again.
When will it stop? There should be the end somewhere, right?
>>
>>133665356
A professional RAID requires picking drives from separate batches, actual intelligent admin upkeep, and a willingness to replace the drives that fail.

RAID 0 is literally garbage tier for people who literally want to lose their data. Never. Not ever.

RAID 1 is a literal backup. You don't even need to RAID it, just make yourself a damn backup.

RAID 5 is entry level territory.

RAID 6 is entry level territory, with more money to burn.

If you're trying to make any kind of RAID with less than 5 HDDs, you've failed. go with JBOD.

>>133665751

I'd probably finish it if I stopped watching so many airing anime.

RAID1 is redundancy, not back up.

If your computer goes so does all your data. Real back ups are external and ideally offsite

I just finished season 4 of Teekyuu.

I think I've come to the point where I enjoy short comedy shows more than full length ones.

I have Hunter X Hunter downloaded.

If you enjoy trainwrecks - keep watching, FUN and stupid twists are beginning. If you want your stuff to be logical and serious then you are going to see some pain.
>>
>>133668306
You're not out of time, that's the whole point.
If you have so much that you want to watch that there's literally not enough time in the day for it, isn't that a wonderful thing?

You have the rest of your life to finish watching, and it's okay to take your time.
Don't rush to the end, because once you get there, you'll find there was never any sort of prize.

Bad anime can be fun too, in it's own way.
Not everything needs to be 10/10 would watch again.

And if everything you watch is 10/10, doesn't that just make it average?
That being the case, almost everything becomes below average, so it's harder to enjoy anything.

Just like with life, you need to take the good with the bad.
