for the last year i've been watching youtube videos at x2, x1.5 if it's really packed with info. it saves a lot of time, especially when for the past 2 years youtube was forced to switch to > 10 minutes format to benefit the algorithm

i've tried to do the same thing with anime and stumbled upon a thought that it's kinda disrespectful towards countless people that produced the show frame by frame for a 25 minute episode to be glanced over in 10-12 minutes. you're basically saying "just hurry the fuck up and finish"

i've done it multiple times and i'm sure you've done it too. if not by watching it on x2, then by skipping stuff with the right arrow (forward by 10 sec) every time something boring happens

so is it a bad habit? are you supposed to watch through all of the shit patiently? what do you think?

No i've never done that, cause any anime that makes me want to do that isn't worthy of my time

Most of the anime I watch (a lot of adaptations) seems rushed, or otherwise has uneven pacing...so I cannot fathom watching it at 2x speed. It would only exacerbate the problem.

Now, if it's a lecture, something that only conveys information, that I would watch at a faster speed. It is good to have the convenience of going back to normal speed when needed.

Huh... I do it for informative videos, not for art. Would you run through a museum to see everything faster?

you probably have adhd or something if you feel the need to watch anime in x2 speed. If you feel uninterested in the anime you drop it. Dafuk is that x2 shit, you can't be serious.

this.

only thing compareable i've done was skipping a lot of unnessecary scenes whhile watching naruto and some of the newest arcs in one piece.

watching anime in x2 speed i like becoming a father and skipping 30 years after the birth of your child just to see what the result of the life is which was caused by you.

Do whatever you want.

It shouldn't bother you that other people are bothered about what you do in your personal business.

A question I have for you is: why are you in such a rush to finish an anime? Is it just to get to the next one? IMO, that sounds like a waste of time so just move on and find something enjoyable. Just wiki the ending.

Guess anyone who does this a lot should question why he's even wasting his time with a boring show.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Might be surprising , but I watched anime at x4 speed so , x2 is nothing . Well that`s because I only get 2 -3 hours time in a day . so , try to make it count!

Also those people think that it`s a sin ,my opinion is that if you speed it up and don`t understand then it`s a sin. But other wise I think it`s useful.

Sure, speeding a boring anime you don't even like will save you time. But you know what saves you even more time? Dropping the show.

Go for it, but don't be surprised when someone calls you out for missing something.
Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

I don't believe I'd be able to truly appreciate the anime I watch if I did that. I get that there's only so much time in the world, but that's you have to be picky about what you spend your time doing.

Of course it is a sin, haven't you learned from the previous anime speeding threads?? You're a heretic for watching anime slower than 3.5x speed.

At least you're not like Jeikobu bragging about his 1000+ days on anime that he got through watching anime at 2-16x speed.

I've once watched an anime at 4x speed just to try it out, but I didn't like it. I do multitask anime a lot, but I don't like speeding anime up. It wrecks the audio and it also make it harder to read the subtitles.
