Depends on how efficient you want to be. I watch anime on 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000x speed for maximum efficiency. I have seen all the anime of the past present and future.

Lmao. Why even watch then? I don't understand people who watch at increased speeds just to complete something. Like, what does it accomplish? Just ruins the show.

Whats the point of watching it then... just watching it for the sake of completing it is just a waste of time.. better of reading manga or skipping the show completely for something more interesting for ur taste..

Nah, it's more efficient when you watch at speeds like x10 or higher.

I don't know who invented that "watch it at x speed" but it's still the dumbest shit I've ever heard of.

Not only is that not efficient, but it sounds like a bad idea if you want to enjoy what you are watching. I would hope that if you do that you only do it with shows you have either already seen or don't care about.

Are there really people who watch anime like that? Or is the whole "x times faster" trend a meme?

I watch anime at 0.25x because that way I can read the dialogues and fully enjoy the art and animation
"I'm alright, because
The warmth on my back
Is from you, protecting me
My bent heart is being straightened out
I feel like I can keep on walking when I see your face
That time, I was able to gather my wishes and jump up
because of your words of encouragement"

Yes, that is the best way to watch anime. If you don't watch anime on 4x speed you're not a real anime fan.

No, because watching it at a higher speed than intended isn't efficient and doesn't even qualify as watching it to begin with.

if you had a bot or something to pause for you. if its going at 4x speed theres no way you can react fast enough to catch the show right where there is dialogue at the exact moment; either you will pause too early and have to wait for dialogue or you will pause too late and miss some and have to go back. also the bot would have to know when to pause which it can't. so no, its not efficient at all

It's far better to watch anime in 16x speed! Jeikobu would never approve of this!

Just read on mal the specific episode forums and then just add to completed with 2/10 score.

it's okay as long as you enjoy it but x4 is quite fast i think
If you only face forward, there is something you will miss seeing

It's not about efficiency, if I wanted to get shit done I'll just stay overtime at work or something. Watching anime is merely something to enjoy at my own pace and to the exact pace that the creators of those anime deems to be perfect.

Speeding up makes the dialogue to too fast to have any weight to it, ruins the intended atmosphere created for the scene and kills basically any background music.
I swear I'm not a lolicon.

If your favourite character is Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko, you are my soul mate.

Opinions are all relevant. I express mine freely and believe everyone should too. Unless you say "<Insert anime here> is the best! Everything else sucks", then GTFO.

Let me tell you one thing: you're not enjoying what you're watching if you don't watch it at normal speed.

That's like watching it just to increase numbers in your list. If You feel like that in any anime just drop it


maybe you missed my last thread, https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1742971
now i know what exactly you are after! Just follow these steps:
>go to top anime or most popular section
>start adding everything you see in the list and mark it completed
>do it until the list is over
This way your STATS will be way ahead of others, dont waste your precious time on these cartoons

I don't get why people do this. Watching anime isn't a competition on who can get through a series the fastest or who can watch the most anime in one sitting.

is it efficient for me to watch my anime in x4 but pause whenever there's dialogue so i can read and kinda grasp what i'm watching?


Just fashion up a time paradox so you can consume all anime in existence without any time relevant to human perception 'passing'.

Watching anime in anything faster than normal speed is retarded and pointless.
You're consuming art, not a YT video...

It's much better to watch it at normal speed and hit pause or slomo when you want to look closer at something.

This. You should really reconsider your interests if you even think about watching anime sped-up.

It's pointless in my opinion because you skip many scenes and parts that have a meaning for most anime series.

speedreading the manga would be more efficient than having to pause and unpause a video constantly. 4x is pretty extreme lol i dont think ive ever gone above 2x.
