Thee most common question to ask someone who is also into anime is, "what anime do you watch?" It is a fairly good way to judge someone's tastes. But the far less often asked question is, "how do you watch anime?" While it does not give the depth of information that the first question is able to impart, it does color the way you view series. Some series benefit from being watched in one fell swoop while others are best parsed out over time. Some anime almost demand to be watched with a group while other benefit from an intimate and solitary audience (and I'm not just talking about porn). The question is which show fits into which category.

To help us answer the question, we brought in the always opinionated Daryl Surat from Otaku USA and the Anime World Order.
