Ive noticed that ive been buying alot more anime this year, especially this summer. Maybe ive just been really bored or really lonely, or maybe both, but ive been buying alot more than normal as of late.
Well, im about to re-arrange my anime collection, hope to chat soon.

Honestly I find myself watching more anime shows and play more video games I would read less in the summer because I tend to read manga at night when I'm about to sleep and I kinda sleep late in the summer because school won't be waiting the next morning. ^v^

Interesting question... I feel like during the summer I watch more anime, and it's the time when I also go and re-watch a bunch of anime as well. Hem.... And I think my manga reading always stays the same XD Doesn't matter, I'm always reading something... And gaming? Yeah, I guess I do game a bit more in the summer when it's hot out and I'm just feeling lazy where I want to sit down and play some good games.

As I don't have a "baito" at the moment(),I got plenty of time for my gaming and anime watching (not to mention,that I usually stay home the most during summer)
I admit gaming more but I often pull marathons on series whenever my home is quiet enough.

I tend to catch up on my gaming. Summer is still work hours and the what nots but summer hours give me some more time at night.
When I was going to school it was more of both, and usually shared with friends at sleep overs.
I miss the jamma parties.

I watch a DVD of an anime series with my friends during an afternoon and then debate afterwards on the pros and cons afterwards. Also, we have a Saturday Cosplay picnic on the weekends when there is no anime convention

Ah haah~ I spend my days doing work and helping my family out around the house, hanging with friends, and the like. But, once that sun goes down (and, sometimes, earlier) I'm playing video games, re-reading my manga, and watching some new anime. XDDD So, I try to work everything in. That includes drawing manga as well and trying to get some art done. ^^
It's good to see that everyone can find time to enjoy themselves the way an Otaku is happiest. XD

Um I don't watch that much anime in general, I'm a manga person, but in the summer I do watch more that usual! This is the summer I finish YuYu Hakusho and I'll probably try out 2-3 new anime series I'll watch in their entirity this summer! ^o^/

I usually watch anime or read manga every other day regardless of how busy I am. It's what I do to relax and it's even more of a treat now that I am on break for the summer. Anime/manga kinda spills into other hobbies such as music (trying to learn how to play a few Vampire Knight songs on the piano and violin - LOL - so not going well so far :D)
Definitely not shutting myself up in the house all day either. If someone wants to drag me out to a BBQ or some other summer social thing I'll go for it.
I might squeeze more than I bargain for some days but it's worth the raccoon eyes when I wake up happy. ^______^

Hmm. Hard to say because my schedules are so weird. See, I'm watching two summer schedule anime through a stream (Sakamichi no Apollon and Lupin the III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine) but I'm also watching the *current* Big Three in Western Animation. They are MLP: FiM, Adventure Time, and Avatar: Legend of Korra. I don't know when the anime are ending but Korra ends it's first season Saturday and Adventure Time ends some time in July/August. MLP isn't airing anything but it's cool to look for episodes that sounded interesting and YouTube has roughly all of them. In addition, Puella Magi Madoka Magica just came out with Volume 3 in English, something I will eagerly look for in free English sites. Manga wise, I've got nothing set up unless I want to go back and finish the War on the Moon Arc in Soul Eater. Not the biggest manga fan, I can say that much. Video games wise, I have a Mac and a Wii with no action games. So...I'm dead in the water. Though I could go back to playing Minecraft and Team Fortress 2 if I felt like doing so. In addition, work is crazy this time of year (I work in a supermarket buffet area) so less fun time.
Gosh, my life got difficult.

I find myself playing a lot of video games, reading more manga, but watching less anime. In the case of both video games and manga, it's a kind of go at your own pace thing, so I can sneak in 15 minutes of reading or 15 minutes of playing whereas with anime it's a set time so it's harder to find a block of time to sit down.
Plus, video games and manga can be portable, which is very handy.
Although I have been getting the girls I babysit into anime, so I get to sneak in a few episodes of anime that way. :)

Otaku Eternal | Posted 06/13/12 | Reply
I've been out of school for over 10 years, so i really dont have summer break or summer portion of my yearly schedule lol.
However, throughout each year I usually get to a point where im overloaded with anime that i've bought and havent watched yet, so i usually start spending entire weekends (when im off work) to watch anime and catch up with the stuff ive bought. I just recently reached that point the past couple of weeks. I ordered alot of VHS anime for cheap online, and they've been coming in the mail, so ive been trying to watch them as they arrive. I havent really been playing games for my xbox 360 lately (which i usually do during the week), so i guess you could say that ive been extra lazy lately lol.
Normally i keep a balanced schedule of anime, videogames, but sometimes i'll take a break from games and spend most of my time watching anime, or the other way around when i feel like taking a break from anime, it usually depends what i feel like doing when i get home from work in the morning lol.
Well that's pretty much how it is for me, I better get back to watching Patlabor 1, so i can finish it and start watching one of these new vhs anime titles i bought :)

I'm not really interested in watching anime anymore; I plan to catch up on and start a lot of TV shows, though. And read at least one manga a day - though I prefer shorter (<4 volumes) ones and I'm a fast reader, so that won't be a problem. Not much going outside during the day since the heat is scorching, but my nights will probably be spent on looong walks :3

My reading and gaming tends to go into hibernation when the sun comes out. Well, my manga reading, anyway. I tend to read more novels that lack graphics as I bathe in the sunlight.

Resident Dark Lord (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 06/13/12 | Reply
I guess there's no big difference in how much I watch anime in the summer and other times of the year. I usually watch anime whenever I get the chance and am in the mood for it.
As for manga I guess I do most of my manga reading in the fall and winter. Think about it, you can read manga just about any time and anywhere, provided you aren't reading it on an iPad or a computer and don't have a power outlet in case you need a recharge. If you have a little time between class and nothing else you have to do, or perhaps if you're just waiting for your ride out, you can just pull out some manga from your bag and start reading. Maybe you could listen to some music too while you're at it, that is if you have an iPod or other similar device. That's what I usually do.
Of course some summers I read the Card Captor Sakura manga if I'm in the mood for it. As for my fall and winter reading I have a schedule of manga that changes a little each year. And i guess some of it is summer reading since the schedule starts in August.
The greatest fear is that of the unknown.
time = anime. If there is time, it doesn't matter how "beautiful" the outdoors are. anime always comes first

Wish I could actually say "I always look forward to summer because of more free time", but I can't. I'm out of school (can't afford a next semester of college) and I'm unemployed (but looking for work) so summer is kinda year-round for me ^^; I have all the time in the world for the time being and most of the time I spend it online and watching anime. I don't watch anime back to back to back though. I usually get bored after two or three episodes so I have to stop.
I wish I could go back to my school days and look forward to summer. Now my days just run together ... it's not as fun as it sounds ^_^;
Otakuite++ | Posted 06/12/12 | Reply
During the summer I tend to play more video games than watch anime, but I do read manga a lot more typically than I do in the fall. Since I have homework and exams, I tend to watch more anime while working on something for school because it doesn't require attention like video games and manga do. But no matter the season, my spending habits don't change. I'm usually broke from whatever I'm buying... More so in the summer when there are conventions and I want some merchandise or anime... It's a terrible cycle.

I think my viewing habits stay fairly consistent throughout the year, and if they do get disrupted it's not really related to any seasonal change. I have a nice schedule where I watch anime later in the evening, and it works well. No daytime disruptions, no matter the season!
But now that summer is rolling 'round once again, I always find myself fine-tuning my summer vibe by watching some Haruhi Suzumiya. I find it to be great summer viewing, and I'll probably watch it all over again this summer! That might be one seasonal habit of mine, which I'm pretty happy to maintain.

I guess right now I find myself watching more anime, reading more mangas, and playing more video games. I'm not much of an outside person, I never was. I grew up on video games and played them ever since I can remember!. Since school got in the way and took up most of my time I never could watch and read anime or video games as often as I do now. Until i get a job this is what my summer will consist of ^^

As school has been over for me for several years now, summer really doesn't give me much more free time. I actually started watching more anime over this past winter - which is a trend I do see continuing. I have a few plans for upcoming weekends that will keep me away from the TV for at least awhile, (major cleaning project) but once summer really kicks in and it starts getting too hot to do anything the only plan I have is to plunk myself down in front of my air conditioner and watch TV. I would like to finish a couple of the video games that I bought (though that will probably take awhile) and I will continue reading manga at about the rate I am now - unless I find a new book obsession. All in all, I really do not believe that my fandom choices will change greatly with how much attention they get.

The past few summers I haven't increased or decreased much in my fandom activities - for the most part I've just been derping around online or hanging out with friends, usually indoors because living in a desert does not bode well for lots of outdoor fun unless you have a pool nearby. Now I'm too far from my friends to hang out with them too often (plus one of them has a full-time job), so recently I've been trying to get through a huge list of anime, at least to bide time before my big road trip with my grandparents before school starts.

School has been out for me and now I'm looking forward to my college semester starting up next spring. I've also got a few plans ahead as well.
I believe my time will be dedicated to none other than playing video games and catching up with a couple of story projects I've been working on for myself. As for Anime and Manga, I really need to catch up on it, and I have a huge list of different Animes that I need to watch. Summer is a lazy time too, so I probably won't get around to it. I'll have to force myself away from the games. It'll be a challenge, but I'll try to. C:

I am watching more anime with my siblings, and by my self.
I'm reading less manga, my mom does not like me reading all the time.
and playing less video games
Ah I seem to do more reading of manga and watching of anime, especially the latter. I get the itch to watch all the Studio Ghibli animes again, which I shall do this summer too xD
For me, my summer fandom habits in terms of anime and manga usually involves finding time to do anime/manga fan art, and time I spend watching anime per summer can vary depending on what titles I find that I like to watch. As for manga, I don't spend much time reading manga as I do watching anime during an annual basis, but I still read manga based on what I'm interested in.
And yes, going to Otakuthon (which take place in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) is part of my annual anime/manga summer tradition. I have been going there since its begining in 2006.

Since I basically don't watch or game during the school year (my intense lack of free time dictates it to be so, as well as the mediocre winter shows), summer is about my only time to do those things.
Also I don't have cable out at college. That kinda hinders things.

To be honest i will be glued on watching anime, mangas are a everyday thing. video games would be a bit less considering the fact that anime manga time will take over.lol

Well, I would say a little more on the video games, but given that school has been over for me for almost a year now, and job searchings/callbacks have been kind of slim (bad economy and all that), I'll probably be watching a similar amount of anime (maybe just a little more, given that I want to return to some of my DVDs and maybe finish Howl's Moving Castle), reading a little more manga (once my library gets a few more books in that I've got holds on), and still doing a lot of gaming. Primarily, though, I'll definitely be writing and drawing more, given that I want to get something published (maybe I can finally finish my first story over the summer :D)
Apparently, Torchlight 2 will be out soon. And it has MP. Should it not be delayed (yet again), summer will be fun. Might as well go play some Dungeons & dragons (pen & paper), haven't done it for quite a while. Also, got a life-size drawing in mind. Time 2 get busy!
i watch and read more
eventually during the summer the book stores and library remember me by face and name >3<
i become a TRUE nerdy girl during that time because i have so much extra time on my hands and dont know what to do with it.
summer is als when i try new anime/manga like last summer i tried Kuroshitsuji for the first time and now its one of my FAVORITES ever!!
i plan to watch as much anime until my eye balls fall out

i love to read a bunch of anime and watch alot of anime because i am an anime fanatic i go crazy when i dont read anime
and i play a ton of video games..
but i also go outside to because i also have other things to do in life than just anime..
oh and i also draw a bunch of anime too in my free time.
i'm definitely an indoor person- i burn within ten minutes so i'd say i watch/read more anime/manga but not that much more. my free time turns to drawing or hanging with friends more than anything. :D if i can i'll read in the shade- that's the best thing to do >:3
