I'll be honest here from the get-go: I blatantly stole this idea from @paulisadroid, who is asking the very same question, though with regard to Video Games. The question is whether you play one video game at a time, or whether you mix it up, balancing different games at once.
I figured this question is very easily translatable to the Anime community, so I stole his idea and reworked it for anime.
Same question, though! Do you watch one anime at a time, remaining faithful to that specific story, or do you watch many at once, switching between narratives and storylines and keeping track of them all?

Personally, I like to binge through a single anime at a time.

I feel like I never have enough free time (which probably isn't true) and so when I do get the chance to sit down and watch some anime, I try to watch all of that anime so I'm not caught between episodes or waiting for the new release. If I go through a season at a time, I'm okay because I have the bulk of a narrative in that.
Trying to balance anime is too much for this time in my life where I don't have the free time I'd like. I still have games to play, yknow!

How do y'all watch your anime?

One at a time?

Or all at once?

Binge watch. I take a day to prepare for it for the special animes. I clean my room, buy a ton of snacks and drinks, scan my laptop (so nothing lags) do my homework ( so that nagging feeling can shut up and let me enjoy the anime) and take a nap so I'm well rested.
@InVinsybll. Hmm. I have a notebook system for watching anime and reading manga. I document as I go. Since I read mangas before I watch anime, I can generally keep track of timelines. Think it might be the obsessive organization issue I have...but it keeps me busy and entertained. lol
I watch one at a time but I might watch a episode of something else to see if I want to start it after the one I'm watching
I'm also a monogamous anime watcher. I don't watch much, but when I do, I watch it to the end. I'm still in the middle of watching Full Metal Alchemist, for the 3rd time, but when I'm done, I'll move on to Brotherhood. I have a long list of anime to watch, but for me, video games take precedence. I'm just more of a gamer!
@Danse @InVinsybll lol my mind seems to memorize it most of the time, so good thing I could just pick up where I left off
