I mean, it's okay to do shit like that once in a blue moon. I watched all of Brotherhood in a weekend. But when you're doing that for such an extended period of time, that becomes a real goddamn problem.
>>
>>156223558
When you consider you can marathon a 12 episode series in roughly 4.5 hours it isn't that much.
Even working full time you could fit 4.5 hours of anime in a day if you really wanted to, just wouldn't have that much time for anything else.

You'd be surprised.
A lot of shows that are slow paced would improve by watching at X 1.5, you usually start with X1.1 then slowly sped up.
Also after a while you'll notice that your reflexes are more keen.

What is the appeal to this?
>Watch a single cour [...] sreies in a day
That's six hours of straight bingewatching, something I've only done once (Prison School). Why would you do this? Making this a "challenge" in the first place defeats the purpose, it makes watching anime a chore/dare rather than something to be enjoyed.
>>
>>156225582
I usually watch about 6 hours of anime, but not all of the same series. It's usually 6 episodes of an anime, then whatever airing series episodes I haven't watched yet, and then some episodes of another series or a manga.
>>
>>156225582
It's less than five hours. If you skip OP and ED it's even less.

I've already watches a crapload of series, and could easily cover almost every one of those categories, except for the 70s and 80s shit. I have nothing to prove by doing this.
My viewing habits of seasonal series has ruined me, though. I very rarely have the patience to watch an entire series in one sitting anymore.
>>

Cour?
>>
>>156225780
Come on anon, it's the first result on google.
>>
>>156225756
You seem like you have plenty to prove. Having seen an anime of every category is hardly a demanding task.
Instead of watching a cours a day you can watch an episode of a dozen series each day for two weeks.
>>
>>156225650
Well, you *can* but making it a challenge and effectively forcing yourself to sit through a single cour? Just fucking watch anime, man. If you decide you've had enough for today after two episodes, stop. If you enjoy the anime so much you want to sit out the entire cour, do that. Setting "goals" for yourself isn't something you should do with your hobby, that's the kind of shit you do with work deadlines or exercise or other things you have to force yourself to do.
>>
>>156225877
>Instead of watching a cours a day you can watch an episode of a dozen series each day for two weeks.
I already do that with airing series, but more like 30 series.
>>
>>156225905
30 episodes per week is nothing. Aim for 100.

Pff, you fucking casual. I watch 100 episodes of anime a DAY. And I don't even break a sweat. Why don't you lurk a few years before posting on my board.

I have better things to do with my time than watch 6 hours of anime per day.
Doing that shit consistently is just asking to get burned out.

>>156226104
24 minutes * 13 episodes is about 5 hours it's doable but you would have to spend your entire free time on it. Things that are longer than 13 episodes would have to be done on the weekend.
>>
>>156226214
>>156226104

>>156226241
One trick is to spend non-free time on it as well. Things like eating can be combined with watching anime.

How? I work 8am-4pm, have a D&D session every Friday night, dick around with friends or do housework on the weekend, need time for cooking and grocery shopping, go to the gym regularly, and have other hobbies like playing videogames and working on my car. This sort of schedule leaves plenty of time to devote 2-4 hours per day on anime, but not 6+ consistently in 30 days.

I've watched shitloads of series (~400 finished), and I've consistently watch 20+ series per season for about 4 years now. There is certainly no shortage of crap I've watched.
However, trying to force yourself to hit absurdly high numbers of episodes watched is just stupid. You're just going to burn out. It's the same for anything.
I also have other hobbies besides anime. I spend time doing that shit too, so I'm not going to spend all of my free time spending 6 hours a day, every day, watching shit just to prove to nobody (because who really cares?) that I'm "better" than them.
>>
>>156224390
Think about it this way. You have a show that has really shit pacing during some of its episodes. Shit that actually bores you because of how often it puts filler in like reused shots that just take up time without anything happening. You can suffer through it, drop it all together or speed up some parts. Personally I just start skipping ahead till theres actual content, but theres at least an argument to be made
>>
>>156226355
I'm marathoning all of 0079 with a friend in two weeks over a day and a half. Last long break I had, I played Persona 5 for 4 days straight. When I have free time, I absolutely love marathoning things, it's really just a matter of not having time.
>>
>>156226457
>You're just going to burn out.
I can assure you I didn't.
>to prove to nobody (because who really cares?)
(You). And you're not watching shit, with only 400 completed anime you have plenty out there to discover. You can always drop things and substitute them if you don't enjoy them. The important thing is keeping the pace.
>>
I don't have time for this anymore.
>>
>>156222267
I can watch 1 cour a day if it's a good anime. But I already watched all good anime I know of.
>>
Haven't seen moetron in a while.
>>
>>156226656
>But I already watched all good anime I know of.
That's because you have to watch an anime to know if it's good.
>>
>>156226656
Unless your total watched anime is in the 4 digits, you need to stop pretending you're not a pleb.
>>
>>156226457
Once you spend multiple years in this hobby you start running out of decent shit to watch as well. I used to be one of those watch everything types when i first got into anime many years ago but after like two years of that i had went through most of the good stuff and the stuff left just became a chore.
For the record, i did have a lot of free time during those years (AKA all day every day) so i was able to watch a lot more than normally expected.
That isnt to say i havent missed some, but for me, 30 episodes of something enjoyable is hard to find every week and I don't want to rush it anymore than I already have.
>>156226616
If the magic isnt lost on you after watching so much, thats great. I honestly mean it. I wish i could go back to watching multiple series a day and still enjoying every second of it. Though if you have been here long enough to decide what people shouldn't be on this board, you should already know this does happen to some people.

>with only 400 completed anime you have plenty out there to discover
I'm fully aware of that, but I was just illustrating that I'm far beyond a casual viewer who maybe watches 1-2 series a season. I don't have some incessant need to watch everything though.
I don't even bother watching shit from before 2007 or so. There aren't enough hours in the day to watch all of that shit, and even then, I don't really like most older series.
>You can always drop things and substitute them if you don't enjoy them
There is plenty of shit I've dropped, although I don't keep count.

Even with 20 minutes per episodes it's only 72 episodes in 24 hours and realistically you only have 18 hours per day for anime.

Good. Manga is just a bad LN.
>>
>>156227054
Thats excluding watching things that have already aired. Lets put this into perspective as well. If you only watch 5 shows per season, thats around 5 episodes a week. Which means you arent even watching 30 minutes a day of anime. Thats less than two hours per week considering most anime is around 20 minutes an episode. Considering the goal is to have quality discussions, that casual amount of watching wont really allow them to add to the discussion. lets not fool ourselves here, either, 2 hours a week is extremely casual, even people swamped with work have that a day. You can't expect to be part of a hobby community if you don't actively participate in that hobby

Oh shove it up your ass. You know damn well you don't care about that. None of you do. No matter how much you say "lurk 2 years before posting" or "watch 1000 anime before posting" you don't actually want everyone on /a/ to do that. After all if everyone actually DID do that, you'd no longer have your favorite go-to insult to spam at people and make yourself feel superior without actually doing anything. If there truly could be a magically enforced barrier that stopped people from posting unless they met whatever standards you make up, you could no longer constantly insult people for not meeting them.

That's what I dislike about it. About almost all of 4chan frankly. No matter what board or community or whatever pretty much everyone just prefers to copy-paste the exact same dumb insults because actually formulating their own original thoughts and analyzing the thoughts of others is too hard for them.

moot created it for a bunch of people who were mostly casual anime fans to be retarded together. The "you must watch 500 episodes" thing came later.

If my on-topic posts are really ignorant waffle you're free to call them out there when you see them. If you can't pick them out, then they're just as good as yours.

There are plenty of places for you to do that. Its become a meme, but the go back to ___ meme has some relevance here. To the older anons you guys came in to a non casual environment en masse and complained when we bitched at you. At the very least, if you are casual, don't participate in meta like this and simply stick to what you do watch. Since anime itself isnt your interest, simply the couple shows you are watching each season.

>Y-You guys can't tell anyways
Right, that's why newfags, casuals and crossboarders get called out all the time. Do you know what they do when they're spotted? Let's not pretend you faggots stop and say "Gee, I guess I'll lurk for a while and watch more anime." You shitpost like brained monkeys getting electrocuted, cry about secret clubs, and claim board culture and standards never existed anyways.

This logic is flawed. You have no way to determine the accuracy of such calling outs.

I do. I don't watch anime for years and even if I do, it's just for two or four series at most that I got interested in. Don't you have tastes? You can easily judge the quality of an anime based on the source material and if it's anime-original, they're easily dogshit 99% of the time.

>>156227417
No they get "called out" all the time because people like you just use it as a blanket insult for anyone you disagree with for any reason. And you call them a newfag instead of actually addressing what they say because if you did that, there's the possibility they could actually argue back, and you could actually wind up being wrong.

Much easier to just stick to "they're a newfag and I'm not. Nothing they say can prove me wrong because everything a newfag says is wrong, so in my own mind once I've called someone a newfag I can never in any way lose the argument".

To play your own game, no different than someone from tumblr throwing around accusations of being a racist or a sexist.

I do in fact spend most of my time in threads for series I watch as opposed to shows I don't. You're also very much right in saying I'm more a fan of many particular series than of the medium in general. There are a shitton of us, we aren't going anywhere, and we're not necessarily more ignorant about the particular series that we do watch than you are (depending on the depth of our convictions).

In cases like this i have no problem since as you said you know about as much as anyone else watching. Some could argue you don't understand the animation and whatnot however if you don't engage in those discussions theres no issue. The only issue I have right now is that you are in here, not threads about your currently watching anime. As a casual you would simply have no relevance to the challenge itself and shouldn't have joined in on the thread.

You don't really watch an anime adaptation for the plot or detailed developments, it's for simpler but vital things like voices, settings, scenes or battles for immersion. There's a reason why we always tell people to read the source material before watching the anime because that's the correct sequence to do it. The anime and source material goes hand in hand for fully enjoying a series.

Now lets get right into it. Newfag shaming, in my opinion, helps us keep away the idiots and more special snowflake types that really only derail discussion. People who let newfag shaming get to them are the type of people that feed trolls (which there are plenty who use newfag calling as their preferred method of shitposting),as really should be evident considering how this thread went, and push us farther away from a decent board. Think of it like a test, if you get mad at being called a newfag you aren't ready to post on this board.

>>156228115
I wait all that time for your post and all it boils down to is "We were just pretending to be retarded"?

Whatever, I'll try to work with it. Your explanation still doesn't prove anything I said wrong. In fact you're inadvertently admitting it's all true. You call someone a newfag because you want them to not respond. You can claim it's just a "test" but what it actually means is you don't want any actual discussion to be had, you just want to insult them and not have them insult you back. Making an insult for no other reason than to make an insult means you just say it because it makes you feel good. Like you're better than them in whatever arbitrary way you want to feel.

You didn't disprove absolutely anything I said and actually just admitted to all of it. I shouldn't have bothered thinking one of you might be different.

There is no logic to this one, its simply you distrusting me to tell you my true beliefs, which by default means you didnt have any intention to discuss this at all. heres hoping im wrong about that

You yourself have said nothing to go against newfag shaming, you have simply raged at it.
>>156228344
Makes a decent point, I can reply to this and make a discussion since its clear what his issue is and he doesn't assume my intentions like you have.
>>156228344
Its less of actively participating in the shitposting, but allowing it to happen. Trolls will always exist, that will never change. With this however, we have a sort of mutually beneficial agreement, they do what they normally do and we get to see some of the posters who cant control themselves shamed off the board(hopefully). Its in no way a perfect system, but i argue instead of bitching and freaking out, why don't you stop feeding the trolls?

To the contrary I have explained many times how people just say "newfag" and other insults as a cheap substitute for having to make real arguments, and would not say I have "raged" in any way.

>>156228712
Now you're just jumping from buzzword to buzzword. Saying "they're wrong because they're a troll" is no more valid than saying "they're wrong because they're a newfag". There is no magical word to fill in the blank that will suddenly turn it into a logical argument. At some point you have to actually point out what they're wrong about. You're the one who doesn't want discussion. There is no possible discussion that can come from
>You're a _____
What do they say in response to that? "No I'm not". You won't believe them. In fact your logic is basically trying to claim if they do respond, then they've apparently admitted they're a _____.

Hell it just dawned on me. You're the fucking troll in this situation. You've admitted you say things purely for the purpose of getting them to respond and rage or make a show. You claim you don't like people derailing discussions, yet you respond to them with off-topic insults, and then if they respond back somehow they're the one derailing the thread. It all makes sense now.
>>
>>156228966
>people just say "newfag" and other insults as a cheap substitute for having to make real arguments
You are half right. Yes, there are cases where people do that because of what you said. However, I've observed that often, at some point, 'newfag' is indeed all you can hurl at them because attempts at proper argument falls to deaf ears. Argument and discussions is a two way street. Time and time again, I've seen someone who is blatantly ignorant of a subject but act like they know it all and then when get called out, they just double down on it even after pointing them to evidences.

At which point all that's left is call them newfag, less of an insult and more of in exasperation because they're too egoistic to admit they're wrong and you can reason all you like with links, evidence etc and it's all pointless.

Basically, it boils down to the fact that /a/ isn't a hivemind and you're generalizing things, thereby ignoring the other factors and reasoning behing.

Excuse me? You have no argument then. In this situation we are your trolls. we are your newfag. By your own argument you are incorrect. UNLESS you are simply arent reading what ive typed. Since once again, you say ive said something I havent, claimed things without basis (I don't want discussion) or a completely false basis at least. You aren't attempting to read the other side at all. You are content with your original idea and aren't going to discuss mine. Unlike you however im going to give straightforward reasoning to why i believe that, you simply lie about what i said, just fucking scroll up. I want you to quote me. Where did i ever say that i join in on this? Ive left that as an unknown for a reason. Every response to me is filled with this shit, you aren't talking to me, you are talking to some imaginary friend of yours. Thats what this seems like. Honestly, i was trying to help you understand so you could enjoy the damned board, but i think you are too far gone. Go cool down, then re-read my posts, maybe you will learn something, im done trying to spoonfeed someone who wont read what they respond to

"The newfag battle" as I'll refer to it is sort of like a dumb reverse western showdown, where whoever draws first and most shamelessly "wins". So long as you call him a newfag first you can just keep calling him one over and over any number of replies you want, and like someone else pointed out (if i'm to borrow his phrasing) If you don't respond, you accept that you're an X. If you do respond, you've proven that you're an X

It's functionally no different than saying "u mad", but communities like /a/ that like to pretend they're any different or more mature from the rest of the internet and that wrapping it in a different package makes it any different. It also has the emergency backup defense in case someone actually presses you by being able to say "No it's different it's a legitimate criticism because you're going against board culture". And if they try and say otherwise, well they've already lost, since they're a newfag and therefore couldn't possibly know board culture better than you.

Because you are achieving more than simply watching anime.
I can only repeat my suggestion to actually give it a try instead of dismissing it without any practical experience.
>>
This is actually retarded, only a neet could do this
Normal people actually have shit to do
>>
>>156230282
This has been disproved several times.
>>
>>156230278
What am I achieving?
I don't need to try to learn "if" I could sit on my ass for 6+ hours and watch anime, of course I could. The question is if I want to.
>>
Usually I try to watch 1-2 cours of backlog a week next to current anime.
I don't like speeding through stuff. I rather focus on one thing and spread it out.
Trying to watch a cour a day over a prolonged time period just feels like hollow consumption to me.

>he hasn't left his job to become an anime monk

Fucking casuals I swear.
>>
>>156230387
But can you do it for a whole month?
Do you hate anime that much that you make excuses so you don't actually have to watch it?
>>
>>156230458
No it's the opposite, I love watcing anime which is exactly why I don't want to change that into a fucking chore idiot.
>>
>>156230282
If you have a standard 8 hour work day and nothing else you can do it fairly easily. Sync up the 26-70 day with a weekend or day off.

You're half right though, it is a challenge for neets. Not because they're the only ones with the free time for it, but because they're the only ones with a life so lacking in meaning and sense of time that they'd consider sitting in chair for all those hours straight being even LESS active than usual a worthwhile challenge.

It's not achievment worth "challenging" yourself over.

You also have to clean up. That's 2-3 hours total for kitchen time if you're me. Bread needs to be made in the morning, followed by breakfast and something to eat at work. Then there's work from 9-6. Then supper. Then the house needs cleaned or the grass needs cut, or there's some chore to do. That leaves only 2-4 hours of free time on the weekday. I only have time to watch anime on Saturday or Sunday.

Either they work 7 days a week, or they married a stupid high maintenance woman. They have to do shit with their kids. So and and so forth.

Cour = 12-13 episodes, one TV season, one three-month airing period (usually Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sep, Oct-Dec).

A 12-episode show has one cour.

A 25-episode show has 2 cours.

The exact number of episodes in a cour varies due to holidays and timing, but is usually 12-13 episodes. Sometimes 11 episodes, sometimes 14.

Single cour a day isn't difficult task, I ever watched 3 cours for a day when I didn't have any mood to move around.
>>
>>156222267
I did some calculations and saw that the ideal pace is 1 anime cour and 35 manga chapters per day for people with full time jobs.
>12 episodes x 20 min (skipping op and ed) = 240 min
>35 chapters x 5 min = 175 min

>415 min ~ 6 hrs 45 min
>Schedule:
>2 hrs before work (watch)
>30 min lunch break (read)
>2 hrs after work (watch)
>2 hrs 15 min at night (read)
If the cour has 13 episodes, either spend more time or watch at 1.25x speed to stay on schedule.
>>
>>156243751
>skipping op and ed
Do that math again, skipping ops and eds is against the law.
>>
>>156243823
Not skipping the op and ed (although there is no reason to watch it more than once or twice) adds about 48 minutes, so just extend the after work watching session or watch at a higher speed, although watching anything but slice of life at more than 1.5x gets dizzying after a while.

I can definitely see having 4 and a half hours a day in free time if you ration well, but would you really want to spend ALL of your free time every day just watching anime? What about shitposting on /a/? What about jacking off? There's tons of other things I'd want to be able to do as well.

I am NEET but I could only watch this much anime if I was employed and needed healing after work.
>>
>>156244532
The five minutes was a conservative estimate, since it depends on the length of the chapters and the amount of dialogue. It usually takes me 3-4 minutes, but 5 gives a little bit of wiggle room and is a nicer number than 3 or 4. As for lunch, you can easily read and eat at the same time. As for why somebody would do this, I think this plan can be kept until a person either gets to over 1000 completed anime or completes their entire backlog. Besides, I still have time to post despite following a similar regimen (although I alternate reading and watching days) thanks to sleeping 3 to 3.5 hours per day.

Blame the parents and all these god damn smartphones.

Some people can process things easier than most. I can read over 600 words a minute and complete entire novels in one sitting and retain it all after sleeping, but I'm not ordinary. The average watcher will absolutely not comprehend jack if watches his episodes at an increased speed, that goes doubly so considering a huge amount of anime watchers don't know the language, and even watch the translation through a third or even fourth language. It's definitely a product of ADHD or people wanting to watch shows solely to say they have and not as a hobby or leisure.

You enjoy it while you watch it. Then you process it afterwards and let your desire to watch it increase which makes it even more enjoyable the next time you decide to watch.

I simply have this silly notion in mind that if you speed through a show like that it ruins "the experience" somehow or gets too overwhelming

Maybe its just my OCD, it torments me when it comes to anything I enjoy, second guessing and shit.

I'm actually not exactly sure how much I can read nowadays. I was tested in 5th grade and that's how much I was able to read and retain, but back then I was reading full length novels like Tom Clancy and Harry Turtledove. Now all I do is read manga so it's probably a lot less.
>>
>>156246606
It's not silly though? If you're watching things at 1.4 or higher speed and watching everything each season all at once just to say you "finished" the season then you're absolutely overwhelming yourself and completely souring the experience unless you're some kind of autistic savant. And I mean that literally, like the one in three hundred million kind of autistic savant.

I dont watch anything at higher than 1x speed but see the thing is you enjoy a show so much you can't help but watch the entire cour in 1 day and then its over, or you watch s2 the next, but is that more enjoyable than spacing out how much you watch over a week or 3 days or so?

I just can't figure it out if it is or if it doesn't matter, and you can always just rewatch later as well.

Marathoning is fine because it usually means you're so invested you need to see more, so you end up reading 3 of the dresden series in one sitting over the span of 33 hours without sleeping and your mind is so fucked up you start to believe you really are a podunk wizard living in chicago. But when you love something that much you're usually bound to read or watch it again but at a better pace.

True enough

I watch educational shit at 1.5 all the time for efficiency's sake, but anime is different. Voices get distorted, animation physics are wacky, music sounds out of place.
>>
>>156222267
ha. Is this supposed to be challenging? I guess 4chan really is full of casuals.
>>
>>156247439
The reverse harem day would be a challenge for me. I dropped Ouran after three episodes, and that's supposed to be the best reverse haren out there.
>>
>>156247233
Oh yeah, getting into a series so much that you lose your grip on reality is shit. The point where you start hallucinating is where it goes from fun to scary.
>>
>>156242509
Smplayer. It uses mpv. Works like a charm.
>>
>>156247527
It's Reverse Harem/Bishounen. You can go with any series popular with fujoshi.

/a/ was much sillier back in the day. now everyone is so scared or normalfags and facebook that super serious is seen as default

>>156246438
>I only read manga because it's simply better
Absolutely disgusting.

>>156248503
Serious is better than the retardation of old. The only people calling it "no fun allowed" are manchildren.

Sorry, but i actually have a life
sadly

You shouldn't be posting here then, normiefag.

What's so good about it? Does it beat Ai Mai Mi?

>>156248220
it's a /jp/ meme but you'd know that if you lurked for 2 years before posting :^)

>>156248009
When I searched this on google it said that I looked at the wikipedia page before but I'm pretty sure I've never heard of anything like this in my life.
>>
>>156249384
>I've never heard of anything like this in my life.
Probably because you're new. It's fairly well known.
>>
>>156222267
>tfw the most amount of episodes i can watch of any series in a single day is 2-3, and even then that's only if i really enjoy it

i'm such a pussy i doubt i'd be able to make it past the first day
>>
>>156222267
No, because I'm not a kid with no responsibilities.
>>
>>156250116
about 100 people have already used this bait already no one is going to bite
>>
>>156222267
I don't really have the patience to do that. Plus I'd rather not fail out of college. Becoming a NEET isn't an option for me.

>>156222267
No thank you.

If you were to get all these @ 720p, no dual audio, and BD quality if available how much space would it take up. is 50gb a conservative guess?
>>
>>156253715
I'm probably not gonna bother torrenting most if any of these just to delete them when i'm done, but i'd estimate 50 gb being way low for blurays of all these.
>>
>>156253715
I imagine one cour show would be more 5 gigabytes.

[Vivid] Kekkai Sensen [TV 720p], 6.2 GB.
[UTW] Angel Beats! [BD][h264-720p AC3], 7.7 GB.
[UTW-Vivid] Suisei no Gargantia [h264-720p], 6.3 GB.

Not going to bother with the entire list, but you can be pretty sure that 50 GB is not enough.
