there's just something exciting about watching an anime as it airs and being able to be excited with people about what may come next (or, if you've read the manga, how it will be translated into animation and watching the scenes unfold through movement!)
though the obvious downside is waiting a week, sometimes more, for a new episode...

what do you guys prefer? binge watching, or watching as episodes release?

    Both have their place but I'm edging towards watching completed series at my own pace these days.

    I lean towards binge-watching. I'm not very patient.

    normally i'm not getting into a series while it's airing so i typically binge-watch. if it's a series that i got into and it's airing every week once i'm caught up i'll watch it weekly because there is no way i'm gonna have the patience to wait until the season is over out to binge-watch it all at one just give it to me weekly. only way that is happening is if i manage to find some other interest to keep my occupied while the episodes air and then play catch up later.

      I wait a while, live my life, forget about it then remember it and come back to binge the series complete or in long running manga/anime like One Piece, finish whatever arc they finally completed.

      I get more invested in a series if I binge, but some series I can't wait so I'll binge to catch up if I'm behind, then watch weekly.

      If it's a series I wanna watch but not to a binge level, I'll watch it at a rate of 1 episode per week and 1 episode per series finished.
