Do you prefer marathoning anime, or watching it weekly?

Marathon.

What should I marathon?

Inuyasha
>>
>>101389278
I remember watching a BIT of Inuyasha so many years ago. Was about some jewel thing right? Is it worth watching the whole thing?
>>
Marathon or 3-4 eps.

Just watching 20 minutes of something is not enjoyable for me.
>>
Depends when I pick it up and how much I enjoy it.
>>
Both.
>>
4 episodes max.
>>
>>101389223

Generally marathon, but I must admit I deeply enjoy watching weekly episodes with /a/, things like the mutilation mandrill are as good as the show itself.
>>
If you aren't watching new episodes of currently running series as they come out, you are a failure. Marathon your backlog, intentionally leaving new series so you can marathon them is retarded.
>>
>>101389223
Marathon. around 30 eps max.
>>
Depends on the show. I can't imagine marathoning a show like Valvrave, but I love watching shows like Hidamari all at once.
>>
On weekdays, 1 or 2 episodes per lunch
Weekends, marathoning
>>
>>101389223
Marathoning is for holiday
>>
weekly since im not a NEET and i have a life.
>>
>>101389223
I don't watch ongoings.
>>
>>101389223
I marathon plot-heavy anime, and watch currently airing anime purely for cute girls and fanservice.
>>
>>101389807
>marathoning SoLs and not shitty trainwrecks like Valvrave
What the hell is wrong with you? Shows like Hidamari Sketch are best when taken slowly.
>>
>>101390113
This. Though I have to admit a lot of shows this season have a promising story along with the cute girls. I just hope things don't go down the shitter near the end again.
>>
>>101389223
Marathon. Weekly watches always leave you wanting more, and that is torture. Fuck, I need my Noragami and Seki-kun fix. Not to mention the fucking monthly waits between each new release of Robot Girls Z.
>>
>>101389223
I want to watch stuff as it comes out, but I usually have to watch 3-4 episodes at a time due to lack of time.
>>
I haven't watched a show weekly since I got internet. First time on Kazaa, I went and got Dragon Ball GT and watched all of it once it was all done.

It's better to marathon things I think. Find something from /a/, look it up, seems interesting, download it all. Watch it in a day (if it's 12-13 episode series I can do two in a day) and take screencaps to use for wallpapers later.
Who could possibly like to watch an episode a week or a chapter a week?
>>
Will be watching Space Dandy once it's all over. Not starting Free! yet because it might come back for a season 2.
>>
Usually I try to watch 3-4 episodes at a time of currently airing stuff, unless I REALLY don't want to wait.

If it's already ended then I just marathon it as fast as I fucking feel like.

I marathoned the 26 episodes of NGE.
I usually marathon whatever is in my backlog.
>>

Marathon. I tend to forget last episode's stuff when watching weekly.
>>
>Boogiepop Phantom
>Lain
>NGE
>Kodomo no Jikan
>Nichijou
Got through those in a week. The rest of the time was Yu Yu Hakusho but I burned out after the Dark Tournament and it's on hold. How can you get better than that? I have a feeling it's all down hill now

I watch 1 episode a day, and when the MC sleeps I go to sleep too to immerse myself
>>
I hate watching weekly, I don't like having to wait a whole week to watch the next episode. It's frustrating.
>>
>>101389807
>tfw just marathoned valverave
>>
I usually marathon first seasons since I'm pretty oblivious to anything good when it comes out.

Amount I marathon depends on the series. I did marathon all of Madoka without knowing anything about it, and that made me feel pretty sad.
>>
I don't watch airing series, I just watch the last year season series while the current one is still airing, repeat till I die.

When I do watch, it's usually 1-4 episodes (sometimes the whole series if it's enjoyable) per day.
>>
Being a One Piece fan is suffering
>full intro
>1-2 minute recap
>5 minutes of the episode is flashbacks to previous shit that if you were a real fan you would remember
Suddenly that 22 minutes is 13.
>>
Marathon as much as I can before it gives me a headache.

Weekly, I like to take my time instead of just rush watching it.

I don't mind marathoning unless its some good shit like Texhnolyze or YY.
>>
marathon backlogs, weekly airing

/thread
>>
I don't understand how people can bear not to watch at least a couple of airing series. There's nothing like discussing it right off the bat with /a/. Livestream threads are my favourite.
>>
>>101391035
But you're wrong.
>>
>not watching weeklies
>not participating in weekly discussions, speculations and shit postings
>>
>>101391045
>There's nothing like discussing it right off the bat with /a/

You mean getting spoiled by fags who already read the source material
>>
>>101389223
marathon anything with a decent story

week to week for comedy, harem & SoL
>>
I don't care about the "let's discuss pointless details and write fanfiction of what should happen for an entire week until we're all proven wrong" so I marathon everything.
>>
Weekly.

Discussing episode-by-episode is more fun than looking back and discussing the show as a whole.

also you run the risk of constantly being spoiled if you wait to marathon.
>>
The last thing I tried to watch with /a/ weekly was Meganebu and you all hated it so there weren't really any threads. Never again.
>>
>>101391045
I just can't see how much quality discussion shows like SYD would get. I mean, most of the threads I see about it are usually "best girl" related so I disregard them entirely. It would probably work for shows with actual plot, but I save those for marathon-ing once the season is over.
>>
I tend to marathon stuff from my backlog if it's plot heavy. I watch episodic stuff from my backlog whenever I'm in the mood. I've been watching Mushishi for almost two years and only eleven episodes in. Also, I watch currently airing stuff weekly.
>>
What were the threads like when Dragon Ball was currently airing? Were they tolerated? I've seen how bad some DBZ can get and then they get pruned/removed
>>
>implying im a loser without a job who can spend hours sitting on his ass watching anime

weekly
>>
>>101391100
>believing spoilers on /a/
>>
I dislike marathoning series because it leaves me really exhausted of watching it. Small breaks inbetween increase the enjoyability.
>>
99% of OP/EDs suck shit so you can skip those. That leaves you about 20 minutes per episode, you can watch 3 an hour and and most series in 4 hours.
>>
>>101391305
Exactly what Dragonball are we talking about here?
>>
>watching anime
Enjoy never getting the full story. Manga has it all.
>>
Does anyone enjoy SoL no plot shows on a weekly basis but when it comes to marathoning them I just can't do it
>>
>>101391586

I don't enjoy those ever
>>
>>101391481
>every anime is based on a manga
>>
>>101391666
Every good* anime.
>>
If I don't need to wake up early the next day, I can marathon up to 15 episodes a night but some shows are terrible to marathon.
I'm looking at you, Monogatari.
>>
>>101389807
I marathoned VVV. It was fun.
>>
I marathoned One Piece from the beginning to the end of Thriller Bark, only stopping to shit and sleep.

IT WAS GLORIOUS
>>
>>101391100

But airing series is the vast majority of threads. I can't imagine why someone would be here if they didn't discuss airing series.
>>
>>101391740
I marathoned bake, nise, and neko black
though before that I almost dropped it around ep 6, and didn't watch it for a month or so
>>
I simply watch weekly shows until I have nothing new left in my torrent client, then continue with my backlog until something new comes in.
>>
Marathon backlog, watch new episodes weekly as best the discussion is right as it airs.
>>
I always marathon the backlog, or in the case of stuff like Aria I watch one episode a day.
>>
>>101389223
So far, all the shows I've watched have been marathoned, whole 26+ seasons in one day.

I work though, so most days I only get to watch 4-5 episodes before having to sleep.
>>
>>101389223
Weekly, I've gotten bad at marathoning shows over the years because I get distracted or something
>>
>>101389223
I watched ongoing shows as the episodes come out. (ex. Sakura Trick)
I marathon shows that were already completed. (ex. WataMote)
>>
Marathon old, watch new weekly as it RSS's.
>>
If I'm depressed I marathon them
If not I watch them a little bit throughout the day
>>
