We rarely are.
I watched some more anime last night. I think I'm getting the hang of this.
I finished the first match of Kuroko, so I watched episode 4 and 5.
Then I did the unthinkable and watched Fairy Tail. Not the TV series, but the OVAs. All four of them.
They kept me entertained, that was good, not good enough to pick up the actual series, but I'm looking forward to the movie now.
I've never seen but a few Fairy Tail episodes, no OVA. I just never got into it. The art seems sucky to me at times...
The Fairy Tail anime is badly done in general. I can't watch it. I watched a few episodes just to see how a particular thing was animated, but that's it.
I'm still waiting for the Mouretsu movie to come out.
Whisper of the Heart was a rather good movie, I enjoyed that a lot.
I picked the FT anime up when it first aired, I think I saw five episodes or so. I hated the color palet. Everything was so bland, there wasn't any depth, it's like they worked without shadows or something. But since the OVA's are just extra stories, and FT stays enjoyable, at the least, I decided to give them a go anyway.
I liked them. So yeah.
What other anime are you watching at the moment or have lined up?
I've not seen any of this, saw a video or 2 posted in the win thread and a bunch of gifs throughout some tumblrs but...thanks though!
I'll probably pick one from my On Hold list first though, I have a lot on there I watched but never finished, probably something casual (like Kuroko) to get back into it.
Maybe something stupid like To-Love-Ru or Kämpfer, or maybe I'll start with Devil May Cry or Iron Man.
I'm not going to start something new, but I've had my eye on Tamako Market, and a lot of people recommended it to me specifically too, so once I really get into anime again, I'll pick that up.
How about you, what are you currently watching?

What about manga btw? You still reading stuff?
As for manga, there's a few one-shots I got from Googz but only picked up Shingeki no Kyojin; nothing else new on there. I should really broaden my horizons on that front at least.
I think I briefly saw your link to your MAL and it's heck long!? can't believe you'd had time to watch all that. Though I spoke to eni and Tiff about this and they've told me their lists are quite long; especially eni( a good few hundreds, if I remember well..).
I've seen the original series plus a bunch of films and OVAs. The original series is one of my overall favorite anime. Great show, great characters.
I could (w)rec(k) the crap out of you. Do you have a list yourself too then? You should add me on there.
I've read a bunch of one-shots some time ago too, but I stopped reading manga at the moment, I've put most on-hold and I'm planning to do that with every series I think, after some arcs get round up.
I don't think it's that long, it depends on how you schedule your time I guess, there are a lot of series on there from the 80s and 90s, which I owned on VHS as a kid and watched everything from. Not just once or twice. And I've watched a lot of shows while doing other things, like .. well, just drawing actually.
It's not that hard, I doubt my list is still complete either..
