The real question though is this: how do you watch more
After all, anyone can watch more
That’s not reality though. People have got sh*t to do, people to see, and a life to create.
Here’s how you can speed up the
1. Treat every
anime season like a buffet
When I go to the all you can eat buffet, more so if it’s new, I see what food’s available and try it all if I can (at once).
It doesn’t have to be in one bite, no pun intended.
Once I know what food I like and what I don’t, I’ll stick to the tried and true. The familiar. The “good” stuff I like enough that I’ll never get sick of it.
Every season there’s new
- The Journey Of Elaina.
Fire ForceSeason 2.
- I’m standing on 1,000,000 lives.
- Assault Lily Bouquet.
- Talentless Nana.
And there’s so many more
I mentioned these 6
I watch 3 or 4 in one night on Friday. The rest on Sunday (Talentless Nana).
The reality is I can’t watch every single
No one can (unless they don’t have a life, literally). 6
Trying to watch everything is draining. Just like forcing yourself to eat food at a buffet you don’t like is a pain in the you know what!
Stick to what you’re enjoying, and forget everything else. Even if it means watching it at some point later.
2. Choose 1 or 2 days a week to “binge”
That leads to a bad habit and makes the idea of “getting things done” more difficult, because too much play can make you lazy and complacent.
That’s why binge-watching 1 or 2 days of the week is the ideal choice.
When you binge an
- You can even watch a 12 episode
animein only 4 hours.
- Or a 24 episode
animein 8 hours, even though it’s a stretch.
- You can stay focused and live your life without
animeanchoring you down.
- You can take care of your priorities without
animebecoming a bad habit.
And generally speaking, you won’t be as lazy or tired. Sitting down in front of a TV or laptop can do that. It’s just a thing with entertainment.
Short bursts of binge-watching is better than trying to do it everyday. I doubt you’ haven’t seen why from personal experience.
3. Choose to watch
anime when you’re able to multi-task
If you know how to make food and cook, this is always a good opportunity. Assuming you wanna go there and it’s relevant to you.
When the food is doing, you can watch and finish an
It’s not all about multi tasking though.
If you’re taking a break from something physical,
You won’t every or a ton of opportunities to do it, but there are opportunities. You just have to look and think.
That’s true if you’re trying to watch more
4. The 3 episodes a day rule
The other option to speed up your
By doing this you can watch at least 3 episodes everyday, and it still won’t get in the way of “life” despite it being daily.
3 episodes is 1 hour of your time, or 1 hour of your day I should say. That’s about as minimal as it gets.
The benefit is you can almost watch a 24 episode series in a week, or a 80+ episode
When I started getting back into
Sometimes 4 episodes.
This is how I ended up watching all of Bleach after being recommended to check it out.
Shakugan No Shana.
- Attack On Titan.
- Maid Sama.
- Special A.
- Owari No Seraph.
And a ton of other
It all comes down to what’s going on in YOUR life at this moment, and what time you’re able to spare.
The 3 episode rule is a flexible one though, and it works for almost everyone since it’s only 60 minutes your time.
Like an investment, before you know it months or a year later – you’ll have a sizeable amount of
5. Stop spending time on things you don’t care about
This is more of an “extra” step you can take if you feel there are things you do for the sake of it… Which could be put back into
Or better yet: that time could be shared between
For example – do you flick through the TV for 30 minutes everyday, knowing you’re not gonna bother watching anything anyway?
Do you browse through YouTube because you’re bored and literally waste 1 hour doing absolutely nothing?
Even if you take that time and don’t put it into
There’s probably an opportunity to gain more time that you’re overlooking.
