This week's poll was suggested by our member Tripitaka. On average how much time per week do you spend doing stuff like reading manga, watching anime, using MangaUpdates, discussing on forums about manga, making cosplay, attending conventions, etc? Up to you in what you consider a manga-related or anime-related activity. Even administering this site takes some time...

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Easily 40+, assuming "general scanlation work" is included.

If not, then 2-5 hours max.

I selected 40+ hours ....
It's about 7 hours a day.

It's all mostly reading manga, wait no it's all just reading manga.

For times that it's watching anime ... it would be the same 40+ hours. I tend to go on long marathons when I watch anime.

Those are my normal weekly time spent when I'm in the mood to read/watch manga/anime. (Otherwise it would be less than 2 hours because I wouldn't read or watch anything.)

Yes yes, I know I make longwinded comments, but that's just me >.<
I should proof read my comments more, but I won't...
So keep in mind I'm filled with typos

Holy crap I didn't even think about scanlating. Good point. So many hours on scanlating, let alone the time I kill when I come on here and watching all the anime airing that the moment.
Easily 40+

I spend about 3-4 hrs straight reading manga at night, and I check for updates like every 30 mins during the day, reading whichever of my follows that gets released. Per week it would average between 30-40 hrs. It used to be much more than this, perhaps 50+, but I don't have as much free time anymore.

Watching Marathons of anime are really nice, it's also for reading manga.
But reading 40+ hours might give troubles for marathons later on...
When you can't find a serie that you want to read.
Their is a lot of overated stuff and a lot of underated treasures that are hard to find.

My week is already fantastic when I can add a new series to my lists of masterpieces. (If you checked everything that is interesting in the top ratings it gets difficult to find those treasures.

And the most difficult ones to find are those that start of weak and become suddenly fantastic. laugh

Edit: re-reading is not really my thing (except for the paper versions), the problem is when I start re-reading I suddenly know everything that will come.

When their is hope, their is live.

2-3 hrs~ Used to be a whole lot more.

I think I spend more time on these forums than I do on actual manga and anime. Does that still count? laugh

5-10 hours

I read manga or watch anime for about 30 to 60 minutes at breakfast every morning before work.

After work, I spend the rest of my free time with my true love.....

Video games.

2-5 hours.don't have much free time these days
i read around 10-20 minutes a chapter (including download)
and looking for new release takes only less than 30 minutes
in average less than an hour a day
except when for whatever reason i have urge to hunt certain something.

i probably spend 5-10 hours a week on reading manga and watching anime. when i first started getting into anime i would spend all of my free time having anime marathons. the same goes for when i became obsessed with manga. all of my free time was spent reading entire series in succession. so during that time it was easily over 40 hours a week. now, i have a harder time finding anime and manga that i'm into. lately i've been doing tv show marathons instead.

Didn't select the last one, doesn't have much time these days.. at school the whole time. like from 6.30am-4pm (that's almost 10h!!), sleep 12pm-5am.. fml, I even go to schools at weekend for competitions... the rest of the time, is eat, going somewhere, browsing..

But hey, if you include the time doodling manga at school I passed 40 by far biggrin

Right now it's less than 2 hours. I don't watch anime anymore, and since I can't find any manga worth reading, I only read manga when a new chapter of a series I follow comes out. Just like BaeSooky, I think browsing this forum is the manga-related activity on which I spend the most time
