Lack of motivation to watch anime? [whining] (20)

I never have the motivation to watch anime. I enjoy watching it, but it feels like a chore, especially when I think of all those 50+ episode series I have yet to watch.

Does anyone else feel this way?

Not really. Only pick the best to watch, and well seeded ones.

Also I only watch a series AFTER it's finished. Then I torrent the whole thing in one go and marathon it.

Dude, you don't even have to pay for them, what's wrong with you.

one piece is pretty good, but haven't watch any anime since a long time after SAO. Waiting for shingeki no kyojin!!

Just watch animated films and short OVA if you don't have the time for a long TV series.

Dangerous habit, you should stop.

that happens to me sometimes. you should try to force yourself seeing them. in the end you will get a strange but cool feel of nostalgia.

Just watch a long running anime. I watched One Piece when it happened to me 'cause it was a simple shounen that could give me some nostalgia feel. Really helped.

Yes, I'm feeling that today. Fortunately I already watched two episodes that I had to.

gooby plz

I have that all the time. The worst is before the watching, the putting yourself to it. Once you're in you're in for a hour at least. I gotta watch some more anime and read more manga soon

I frequently find myself in the same situation. The worst part is that I know that so many of the series on my backlog would be really amusing or interesting if I could just get around to watching them, or just as bad: that so many shows on my backlog are just going to be average and that I'll feel compelled to watch them anyway since they've been on my backlog for so long.

I like Wakfu, but it's on at 7:30am weekdays so some days i miss an ep due to not waking up early enough ^^

And they play sooo many ads =.

I'm sometimes like this, but I have an obsession with multitasking, so usually I watch an anime episode if I'm eating or doing something monotonous, so I end up watching an anime episode every day! This way also helps me watch boring anime that I still want to finish.

I barely watch anything nowadays. I used to watch tons of stuff back when torrenting and streaming still felt like a novelty (for whatever reason) until around 2007 or so. After that, I've only watched a few select shows since then.

Ever since I started reading visual novels around 4 years ago, I barely ever watch anime at all.

I've had a pretty hard time myself getting into anything lately. I watched about 10 episodes of KanColle as it was coming out.
Having a hard time feeling special about anything lately...

Because I'm so busy at school, I can only spend a limited time on watching anime each week. That's why I tend to watch episodic anime with 100+ episodes more than seasonal anime. I always lose track of seasonal anime because of the intervals between each episode.
