To myself, definitely. It would be a little bit embarrassing if I was caught saying something like "you mustn't become a puella magi"... kinda... hard to explain ¬¬...

Never really read out loud.

Reading loud is fail. How can you concentrate on what you are reading (and enjoy it) if you have to check your voice and spelling?
I remembrer when teachers forced you to read loud in class. I absolutely hated it.
I also cannot stand people who read out loud in public. Noisy weirdos.

LOLOLOL! Sometimes I do it to understand more clearly. Especially Tantei Gakuen Q. It's a detective manga, so, I should read out loud so that I can understand the case clearly. It's an interesting one guys, you should read it.

I read to myself. But when I read Yotsuba&amp;!, I read it to my younger siblings. I show them the art as I read and try to give each character their own special voice.

It's very hard for me to read outloud. It would slow me down a ton. Though sometimes I read to myself a bit to fast and have to slow myself or ill miss the art.

I like to read manga out loud when I'm reading the manga over some ones shoulder and using different voices for different characters , but usually I read manga quietly

I liketo read to myself.
Reading out loud is too tiring because my speaking and reading speed is too different. For example when my mouth still speaking about what I read on the 1st paragraph, my eyes and mind already starting tho read the 4th paragraph or so, so to read out loud (like in literature class) I'll have to concentrate very hard to stop my eyes from reading the later sentences.

I don't read out loud when there are people around.

But when I'm alone at home, I might randomly emit "epic" lines, start a dialogue between two hypothetical characters in Japanese... or sing.

I've never read manga out loud though.

Surely you can't read the fight scenes??
but i guess it will be quite amusing to watch someone do it.

I see the mosto of the people read to themselfI read it out loud (and proud of it). It's funner this way. You can get exceited with them, and ittitated with them (if you do it with emotion, of course). And anyway, when I read to myself, I easily get lost for somereason (habit, maybe?) All those who read quietly, I recommnd to try in once (You don't have to do it in public).

I prefer not to read loudly myself ^^

But, sometimes.. for some hilarious manga like Bobobo and Hoeru o Pen (Comic Bomber) I like to read them aloud in front of some friends LOL

I definitely read to myself. Like a lot of people have said, it feels awkward if you read aloud. Also, it's faster to just read with your eyes without talking (for me anyway).

Generally no but I do tend to repeat highly hilarious one-liners to myself out loud for extra effect, usually between bouts of chuckling/laughing/smirking.

Mostly to myself but sometimes if there is line that seems interesting i tend to say it out loud without even realizing myself i said it, but other times i read loudly when there are funny lines or quotes that mean something important.

yeah, in my mind. I don't think I would be able to read aloud. and when there is a word I know in japanese (i like you, bye, awful....) I say it japanese in my head :)

ever had this urge to stalk a person on MAL and read/watch everything they read/watched?

I had.

I read manga out loud with a friend its like kind of a fandub. It's fun I like it. Does anyone do that? If anyone does that and would like to do that with me or post any collaberations like that on youtube or do fandubs in general please let me know, I'd like to! It'd be a lot of fun. :) I'm a 24 year old woman I do a lot of impressions especially of anime girls/women rofl. Some League of Legends women too I try I dont think I'm really that good at it but its a lot of fun.

I can read much faster when I'm reading to myself. If someone is in the same room and I come across something funny I will read it out loud though.

I read it to myself but SOMETIMES I like reading out loud to my sisters or something but then my mouth gets dry. I read to fast so I don't like reading out loud to much or stuff and people complain ._.
