How large is /a/'s main anime-watching display, and how far back do you sit from it?
I'll be honest, it's not actually mine- it's a really nice projector setup I found on leddit.
Anyone here actually have a projector? Any advice for anons considering one?
50 inches and however long my leg is since I can rest my foot on my computer desk from my couch.
Man, fuck you. You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to crack open a secondary savings account, smash that bitch full of money and I am going to shit all over this set up.
It's only $200-300, cheaper if you already have stuff you can use.
h265 is already being used for rips and it only going to get more popular in the future unless some new magic codec appears.

Yes, you do. The higher refresh rate makes everything smoother even when 24 fps is being rendered. Switching back to 60hz for me makes everything, even anime, "lag" behind until you get used to it again.
>Switching back to 60hz for me makes everything, even anime, "lag" behind
That's just because of dropped/repeated frames, or your video player is doing some sort of interpolation.
72 is better for watching videos than 60 because it's a multiple of 24. Each frame will be shown 3 times, instead of some being 3 and some being 2.
Anon I think what you are experiencing there is bad frame pacing. 60 is not an even multiple of 24, so there is no perfect way to present 24fps content on a 60hz display. Switch to a screen that's an even multiple of 24, like 48hz or 72hz, and it works fine.
>Who poverty here
There is far more to be gained from watching anime in a challenging environment using outdated equipment.
But watching it on your phone is just blasphemy.
40 inches on the wall, maybe 5 feet away and 7 if I'm laying down.
It's pretty good size for reading subs but I do wish it was a little bigger.
Definitly a huge step up from my laptop though.
Knew it. Worked that gig through college. 12 hour shifts in a building on your own at night. Never occurred to me to watch anime at work then, but my phone screen would likely have been too small for me to read subs comfortably regardless. Just slept, walked around, watched Youtube videos, and shitposted.
Sorry sir. It was an accident. It won't happen again.

Huuuuge screen, pretty close from it.
The best part is I can watch anime while laying down.
I haven't watched anime on a real screen since February.
There are people
Who unironically watch Anime on their phones like a bunch of spergy 13 year olds.
Although, knowing the current state of this website, I'm willing to be the vast majority of you are spergy 13 year olds anyway.
Why are people so salty about how others watch their anime? So far using the smartphone has worked out nicely, if you feel the need to only watch them on large screens or whatever that's fine
It's not about what you actually do, it's about talking about it on here. You should know what's taboo and what isn't, so don't be surprised when you get called out for it.
Phone screens are not designed to be used that close to your eyes. You might not get eyestrain, but you'll wreck them long term.
Because using a smartphone as your primary means of consuming media is an instant millennial red flag. Watching anime on your phone isn't inherently bad (although I do wonder about the practicalities and viewing experience), but the practice of doing so says a lot about you - unless of course you do it because you have absolutely no other choice.

There are also people who watch anime on laptops in busy common areas and don't see anything wrong with it.
Normalfag anime fans (the type you'd see on /r/anime) want fanservice and such removed from anime so that they can watch it in public without being judged.
>tfw a bait picture is bait unto itself
Every single time I have seen someone watch anime in public it was always Naruto except for two instances where it was Railgun and (I think?) Sora no Woto.
To keep on topic, either my laptop or my PC.
They're watching anime. In public. They're only a normalfag by /a/ standards. Normals are normals. /a/ denizens sank to the depths and found the bottom was quite comfy once you got used to the odd companionship. People in the middle have nobody. Afraid to give up the benefits of a normal, but unwilling to sacrifice a deviant hobby. Fuck them.
>Afraid to give up the benefits of a normal, but unwilling to sacrifice a deviant hobby.
They sound like Cyborgs in that they bridge the gap between the two extremes, but they don't befit the definition.
But yeah, they think they can have it all, only to be reviled by those at either end of the spectrum. Arrogant, pretentious pricks.
As long as you're not obnoxious with it and you mind your own business there's nothing wrong with watching anime wherever the fuck you want. This powerlevel hiding thing is stupid as fuck, if something like that ruined your life, your life would be pretty shitty already and it would be only your fault. So fuck you, stop being a pussy and just do whatever you want.
Toradora is shit and it's not /a/-approved.
42", on my bed about 2,5m from it is my watching spot. Don't think I could watch anything on my computer screen anymore.
Except hentai of course
Only thing I've watched in public is Planetes during my military service. No one gave a shit.
Woops wrong picture.
At home I use my 17" laptop
If for some reason I want to watch something during the day, I'll watch it on my phone.
Somewhat off topic, but does anyone have any alternatives to MPC-HC and MPV? MPC seems to keep breaking on me in various ways (including probably causing a BSoD) and MPV glitches out if I hit spacebar to pause it out of habit, requiring me to put my computer into sleep mode before I can close it.
