The title is no lie, I actually did watch 24 hours of anime yesterday. Let me explain.
At my university we have an anime society and theirs this event once a year where we watch anime for 24 hours for charity – Where they ask the members to give money to watch anime.
We started at 8 where we went to see the film Mirai at it’s debut release and then went back to the Uni to watch anime for 24 hours. It was difficult but fun as well because we actually got to see some really great shows as well.
More positives are that we had free Japanese snacks. They bought us ramen, mochi and other stuff that I forgot the name of. That’s where the pocky tweet came from.
You can still fight me if you like!
But anyway this gives me a lot more material to talk about which is quite nice!
The way watching worked is that we had a suggestion form online and we all submitted stuff there and watched from the suggestions. This meant we watched a lot of episode ones and films which were great.
When I stay awake for 36 hours (because I didn’t watch anime from waking up to going to sleep) I get very tired at around 6/7 am before then waking up later for the rest of the day and normally being fine.
But this time I watched a film that went on forever in the evening and was unable to really pay attention to most of the episodes where I was really tired through. So there are films that I really want to re-watch when I’m not tired out of my mind because I was just so tired that I couldn’t pay attention to it.
I might actually talk about some individual episodes which were good as well as movies from the event.
I also bought a large pizza which basically made me full through the entire thing and unable to continue eating snacks. Yeah I had a lot with me which means I got a tonne left over.
Here is a list of everything I watched – won’t talk about the shows here but might actually go into my opinions about all the episodes in other later posts.

There you go! Individually they might add up to 24 hours but bear in mind we watched every op, ed and preview as well as the films and we also had to get taxi’s back from the cinema and watch cinema adds which took way too much time as well.
But regardless of that, it was 24 hours of watching anime with friends, and I don’t know whether to be sad or happy about that.
Anyway what’s the longest amount of time you’ve watched anime for? Can you beat this?
