Am I a filthy casual if I only watch 3-4 shows per season?

Who gives a shit?

Do you need any form of permission on anonymous image to dictate on how you live your life too?

You're a stupid person if you watch and enjoy Witch Craft Works.

No because there is rarely more than 3-4 shows that are worth watching each season
>>
>>100773621
If you have shit taste, then yeah you're right.
>>
I only watch maybe 3 airing shows at most, but I've usually also got something on my backlog as well to watch
>>
I only watch a few shows a season (usually the most popular). I already know that I'm a filthy casual so it's ok. It's more important to me to work on my backlog than watch seasonal shit.
>>
No, because only a retard would watch shows that bore them.
>>
>>100773760
>usually the most popular

now, that's retarded
>>
>>100773413
I watch generally only one-two series per season since everything else is pretty much shit. This season it is Hoozuki no Reitetsu and Gin no Saji. Not one of them is up to my alley, anyway. But spring looks pretty decent - Mushishi: The Continuation and Ping Pong. Two really good shows, happens rarely.

And at the end of 2014 we will get Kiseijuu adaptation. I expect my mind melting from absolute pleasure.
>>
If you're only watching 4 shows, then yes. But if you still have ongoing shows from previous seasons and backlog shows, then no.
>>
>>100773413
I believe "filthy casuals" is something that has leaked across from /v/.
As such i do not believe in them. Everyone works at different speeds and quantities, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion even if it is wrong .
You can watch however many shows as you feel you need to, as long as you don`t brag or ask for recommendations.
>>
>>100774946
I'm watching some stuff I wouldn't normally, but you sir are on the right page about what's worthwhile so far. Also, I should really catch up on Space Bros.
>>
>>100774946
>everything else is pretty much shit
So much this. Man, this whole otaku culture is such a lowbrow shit. I'm quite new to anime, but I'm already tired of watching it.

>I only watch mature anime for mature people
I like this phrase, because it implies that there are mature anime. Shit is harder to find than good video games.
>>
>>100775114

I just got back into anime a year ago and I'm sick of it again.
>>
>>100775141
I'm really surprised because all these negative stereotypes about anime and anime fans are pretty much true.
>>
>>100773413
That doesn't make you a filthy casual but 4 is not enough.
>>
>>100773413
this aint /v/ bro, watch what you like
>>
>>100775114
Oh, and Nobunaga the Fool is the dumbest thing I've ever watched. Like wow... who came up with this shit?
>>
>>100773664
If you have shit taste you'd be watching all of the shit shows, faggot.

There are more shit shows than good shows.
>>
>>100773664
Name more than 4 good shows that are airing this season
>>
Most shows are shit this season, so it's fine. At least, of the 12 shows I'm keeping up with right now I will probably shed at least 5 of them by the 4th or 5th episode

Being into anime doesn't mean you have to put up with something that's uninteresting just so you can say that you've watched a bunch of shows for some powerlevel nonsense that, let's face it, no one you will ever meet in real life will actually care about anyway. Anonymous doesn't need to be pleased in your taste
>>
>>100775401
I wouldn't call anything objectively good. Very few anime are actually good (good plot, characters, cinematography and so on). But some shows are pretty fun. I enjoyed:
- Hoozuki no Reitetsu (it's not very funny, though)
- Noragami - rather formulaic battle show, but has nice visuals
- Sakura Trick - I like yuri, can't be helped. It's cute and make me smile.
- Sekai Seifuku - it's pretty funny and well done.

There is your answer then. Very few shows are good.
I have better things to do than watch 8-9 mediocre shows each season, 3-4 are more than enough
>>
I'm trying to watch fewer new anime every season. This season I got it down to 10, next season will be 8, then 6 after that, and finally I hope to keep it at 4.
>>
>>100775561
>D-Fag
AHAHAHAHA

>Hoozuki no Reitetsu
I doubt that it is for everyone but fairly interesting

Can't ague with the rest

>>100775702
Same. It's my first season like this. Some shows are so fucking atrocious it's hard to finish even a single episode.
>>
>>100775620
What is wrong whit D-frag?.
>>
>>100775620
D-Frag is great. 2014 SnH for me.
>>
>>100775741
Yep, there's probably 7-8 I'd drop right now but I just... can't, idk why. Guess I've gone down that slippery slope.
The only thing that keeps me sane is the RSS auto-downloader.

Yes. You should be able to manage at least 7.
>>
>>100773413
I watch less then one. It's like, .33ish. This season is being pretty good to me; I'm watching three things, but normally I'm just reading manga. I'm not big on TV and movies.
>>
>>100775543
>Witch Craft Works
The number one good thing about Witch Craft Works is the detail in the art. The anime doesn't have that and suffers for it.

Also I'm still hedging my bets on Sekai Seifuku being good. It seems like it really could be.
