It was kind of unavoidable because I’ve moved recently and haven’t had a lo of time to spend time on the internet. I’m talking about getting behind on airing anime of coarse and how it can happen so quickly. You slack off for one week doing other things and suddenly you have five or more episodes to watch and since life is distracting this could happen for two or three weeks and then suddenly you have that dreadful thing all anime fans want to avoid. A backlog.
Now mine isn’t so bad because I’m not watching too much this season and can easily catch up in an afternoon but for all those people who watch nearly everything that is airing I imagine this can often lead to mountains of epiosdes piling up and the potential for dropping gets larger and larger.
Before my days of watching airing anime when I just stuck to the few anime I could get my hands on every now and then a backlog would have been a blessing but now days having a backlog is something I dread because I always like to be up to date with everything and have the power to do so. When I’m behind I know I’m being lazy and that usually motivates me to catch up?
Does anyone have an enormous backlog at the moment or the problem of sudden backlog if real life problems arise? I’m in a decent situation at the moment so I can always find time for myself but I’m sure others have a harder time finding free time then I do.
