Why is finishing everything in your backlog so difficult?
>>
For the same reasons you use to post worthless threads.
>>
>Delete everything
There, you finished it.

>mfw I finished everything in my backlog today
>>
Since it landed up in your backlog, you never had as much of an interest in it in the first place. If you did, you'd have watched it right away.
>>
Stop bitching, I'm getting closer and closer to the final boss.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeGeGe_no_Kitar%C5%8D
Like 600 episodes
>>
It's growing faster than I can go through it.

Why is /a/ so autistic about its backlog? Just fucking watch and enjoy anime.
>>
This >>101402323 and after some seasons there is always something interesting i missed so it goes to backlog.
>>
>>101402369
This interests me. Is it worth watching?

>>101402323
That's an interesting way of putting it.
>>
>>101402569
I have no idea if it's good but it's like one of those old as hell anime that Japan keeps revisiting like Lupin and stuff so I'll at least try to watch it for the general knowledge.
At least it's not Doraemon with its 2000+ episodes
>>
Because the backlog is an ever-growing source of anime to nourish and protect you from the cold harsh reality outside of your computer and isn't meant to be finished.
>>
>>101402754
Man, fuck Doraeman. There's no possible way of even watching one of the earlier versions of the show.
>>
>>101402301
Jesus Christ, that gif
>>
Shows that end up my backlog:

Old 70 episode series take ages to get through

Shows that seem alright but I decided to watch other shows that looked better in their season

Recommendations that I've not got round to yet

Hehehe.

>watched movie gg subbed and I just had in backlog
>movie turned out to not make any damn sense

at least the time traveling esper was fabulous
>and he died
fuck you
>>
>>101403287
Nerawareta Gakuen was just eyecandy anyway.
>>
Because my backlog contains more shows than I have watched.
>>
Because let's face it, you put things on there that you think you "should" watch but deep down don't really want to.
>>
>>101403768
but you can have story as well as eyecandy if you stick to Shinkai films

even though the story is always depressing and the same thing every time

god-DAMN if that man can't make the best scenery porn ever

Garden of Words is one of the most beautiful looking films I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing
>>
the hardest part is starting a new series
i started watching samurai flamenco earlier on and it's really boring, i don't know if i'm going to bother
>>
>>101402172
Because I watched LotGH. I haven't watched anime since summer and everything looks like crap to me. That, and I can't be assed to start anything.
>>
Because for every finished anime I add two more.
>>
>>101406318
This. And also when I start new series it's usually not from my backlog. I really need to stop doing that...
>>
>>101406570
I do this too.
>>
>>101405534
Once you get to episode 7 everything goes completely insane. It's still bad, but you can't get off this ride.
>>
>>101402172
Because I have got an anime backlog, a manga backlog, a film backlog, and a book backlog.
>>
>>101402172
I look at that as a good sign, because it means you aren't letting yourself get bored.

Backlogs exist for two reasons:

1) dead time between seasons

2) when you're bored with nothing better to do

Since reason 1 only comes around rarely, reason 2 is the primary function for a backlog. If your backlog is growing, it means you're keeping yourself busy and occupied with other things, which is a good thing! Boredom is a disease.
>>
>>101402301
>finishing the backlog

Sure.
>>
I think I'm going to start next season by watching my backlog, one episode a week. It'll be easier to digest.
