    Cool Marathon or wait weekly?

    So which one do you prefer? To marathon an anime or wait for it weekly? Is the impact much stronger if you marathon it? Or does the suspense build up waiting for it weekly?

    Absolutely, I prefer marathon, and that's why I haven't seen most of the 2013 Anime. You can still have suspense built up when you marathon.

    Marathons are the best who cares if I'm left behind with all the updates I can't stand waiting
    I'm super impatient with everything
    waiting WAITING for a new ep for a week is torture!!
    in a marathon you don't have to worry about anything nothing is holding you back~!

    Marathon, simply before the long wait sometimes fizzles out my anticipation for the next episode.

    it depends on the anime that i watched. sometimes, i want to watch anime in marathon mode but, there are times that i could not really wait for a whole month not to watch the anime so i watch it weekly. there are also times that i read the manga.

    I'd rather wait weekly. In that case, I have something to wait for!

    Definitely Marathon which is why I wait till a series is over before starting. However if I accidentally start something on going and its really good, then I have no choice but to wait and watch weekly :(

    Yeah, marathon for me too. If I catch up to something, it becomes a marathon as I'll forget to watch it for like three months.
    I would if I could, but I can't, so I won't.

    I do marathon. But If I can't really wait, then I watch it when updated.

    Marathon for sure. I'm gonna try and do weekly for most the ones coming up Spring 2014 just because but Marathon is a lot more fun.
    Also I have bad memory. I tend to forget what happened minutes after watching the episode so weekly is kinda bad for me.
    I thought Log Horizon was ending after 12 episodes so I marathon-ed it.
    Waiting weekly wasn't all that bad but I didn't have to go through a synopsis of the last episode sometimes to remember what happened.

    Weekly, the small packages a week works well for me. I feel like I waste less time watching anime. It feels daunting to me to know I'll have many episodes more to go if I marathon, but if I only watch once a week, there is always just one more episode to go. I'm also pretty impatient; for a series that I know I want to watch, I couldn't wait an entire season before I could watch it.

    Wait weekly. But sometimes, when I have a lot of time, I just marathon the anime. If the impact is really great on me, I re-watch it. =)

    Marathon. I tend to wait till the anime series is finished before I start watching it. Lol, I guess that's why I am always behind anime news and updates. Although, Kuroko no Basket 2 is the one and only exception. XD

    Weekly wait for me. Marathon, what happens if we finish it instantly? the joy and the thrill of so called "waiting" is gonna be killed. So I choose Weekly wait, rather than a Full Marathon.

    All depends. What mood I'm in, how much free time I have and if I'm taking a break from watching anime or not. Usually, if I am ina period where I'm watching it regularly, I'll watch at least a few episodes a day and marathon sessions when I havd a large amount of free time.

    I prefer anime marathon, because I don't really like cliff hangers and for me, the impact of the anime is decreased if I watch only one episode per week.
