When was the last time an anime hooked you and you watched it all day long?

You don't even remember
>>
Season 1 of Silver Spoon.

I watched it all a couple weeks ago.

A week ago wasn't that long.

Shin Sekai Yori. It's a series that is way better if watched in one go. Or at least over just a few days. The pacing was off for weekly releases, but watching every episode back to back is absorbing.
>>
Rurouni Kenshin. A few months back... Watched the show, ova, motion picture, and the live action. Needless to say I was all Oro'd out.
>>
>>101221183
Code Geass two weeks ago.

Didn't mean to quote.

When I watched all of Jormungand about a month ago.
Before that was Senran Kagura, before SK was Shinsekai Yori I think.

Unless you count rewatching FMA Brotherhood which I've been watching at a pace of about 12 episodes per day.
>>
Hajime no Ippo, fuck yeah.
>>
You're right, I don't remember. For years now I've just watched seasonal shows as they aired. My backlog has gone untouched all that time.

Steins;Gate, which I only got around to starting 2 weeks ago.

I watched 8 episodes at a time.
Then I rewatched it, noting how fucking amazingly the first episode ties into the rest of the series.

Katanagatari and Love Lab.

yesterday.

sick in bed so I watched kids on the slope all day. Overall I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with it but it had a few issues.

Definitely a needed break from the shit Ive watched recently.
>>
yestorday..
watched Hunter x Hunter 2011
>>
Lain.
It was yesterday.
>>
Eva, but that was just so I could watch EoE and then say I watched it.
It was interesting, not as pretentious as I thought it'd be. I understood most things, and I didn't find EoE as confusing as you guys make it seem. It was bizarre, but the plot wasn't hard to follow.
>>
My most recent one is Log Horizon.

The first episode is pretty awful and confusing you have to let it set in and give it a few more episodes, You can't expect the first episode to be amazing when it has 22 episodes.

SYY.
Marathoned it in one shot. Couldn't stop.

The last time I did that was for Code Geass.

>>101221741
I watch this piece of shit in a single go.
What a piece of fucking shit.

I just completely lost it with the brocon moe sister tsundere same blood arghh.
Fucking good music but the rest is terrible.

Completely wasted my time.
>>
>>101222158
Yeah, the 6th movie was pretty badly handled, and the novel counterpart was better, but in the overall experience, I still loved the movies.
>>
First season of K-ON is the only show I've done that with, about a year ago. I usually get really fatigued watching too much anime at once.
>>
>>101222126
Now, this is something you're gonna have to explain to me.
How does one thing relate to the other?
>>
>>101222158
Should have just watched movie 5 and ignored the rest. Only good thing about the series.
>>
Bleach episodes 1-60.
>>
Just rewatched One Outs, good times as usual
>>
I watched Eva 1-26 (with the DCs) in one sitting, I think.

.. Until, for complete dramatic effect, the power went out literally seconds after I finished Episode 25.
>>
Not all day long, but I marathoned Gundam Build Fighters 1-16 yesterday after some anons recommended it to me the day before. It's pretty fun, I gotta say.
>>
K

It was gay.
>>
Sunred, both seasons.
Shiki, although I´m almost sure I had to make a break in the middle.

/co/ material on the other hand, always keeps me on my seat and entertained as fuck (Metalocalypse, Home Movies, Moral Orel,...)

Same here. Although I watched the full episode, but I wish I dropped it and saved myself from the torture. Quite possibly the worst anime I have ever seen.

It's boring beyond imagination. Also, you can literally smell the sweat of how hard it is trying to be deep as fuck. Shit was embarrassing to watch.

And people say Bakemonogatari is pretensious. If that's true, then Texhnolyze is the very definition of it.

Penguindrum a week ago and it was the second titime i've watched it. But fuck, that ending

It was so minimalist that I don't know how you could possibly gather that it is "pretentious".

Discounting short OVA's and films, I did watch all of The World God Only Knows pretty fast. I don't usually marathon anime these days though. I did marathon some manga recently though. I Am A Hero and Witch Craft Works.
>>
Psycho pass 5 days ago.
>>
>>101223125

Some series are less marathon-friendly though, Aria being the classic example.

>>101223185
Hidamari is also a pretty good example.

>>101222972
She wasn't such a fucking clumsy/ditzy bitch for the sake of moe, she was still in love with her brother, though, but the plot was leaps and bounds better, completely overshadowing said subplot.

Naruto. Way back in 2004. I haven't watch a single episode of it since 2005

Psycho Pass 2 weeks after it finished airing. I marathoned that shit in one sitting I was so tired that when they revealed pops was edgy faggots dad I physically flipped my shit I also marathoned GJ Bu recently.

it was funny how the manga was praised and recommended in manga threads before the anime was announced and a huge vocal minority started calling it shit.

i'd say it's the majority now, actually.

The Otaku humor was pretty bad, IMO.
Plus, the bigger problems start later on when the show doesn't seem to able to decide on what side of the court regarding time travel it's standing, Back to the Future or Terminator.

Couple of weeks ago, the original Gundam series. Didn't expected it to be so good. Besides that, i think the only i did a marathon like that was The wire

You're right, I don't remember. But thats more because I realized marathoning a show makes you enjoy it less.

Maybe for you. If you are forcing yourself to marathon it, you aren't going to enjoy it. If it is so good that you can't stop watching, that is a different story.

I can only really watch a few hours at most nowadays. I just lost interest otherwise; I used to be able to watch it from afternoon to nighttime at one point but that was long ago.

Baccano, spent an entire saturday watching it because I was so damn hooked.

Yesterday.

Akagi. I've watched it at least 7 times now. I get bored when my connection drops, think "might as well watch Akagi". I start up episode 1 and I spend the next day watching the entire thing all over again.
