Is it bad to watch anime at 1.5x-2x speed? Most anime moves too slowly, and I keep it muted anyways so my parents don't hear me watching. I just read the subs. Is it bad to watch at 1.5x-2x? Will I miss out on anything?
It's not bait, I know it seems like it though. I watch it muted because I live with my parents and they would think I'm an autist or retard for watching anime, they're pretty old. If my mom sees me with headphones she think I'm watching porn. You can definitely watch a movie at double speed, I've lurked /tv/ and there are threads where people admit to watching between 1.3-3x speeds.
So many things wrong with this post
It's not a meme, it's an actual thing. I watch a lot of YouTube videos at 1.5x speed too, because they just talk too slowly and I want to get more out of my time. 1.3-1.7x is alright for me, not too slow but not too fast either, it's understandable
>not watching in 0.5 speed and ascii output
You fuckers make me sick.
>new Hitler starts gasing people like him
>eventually the rest of the world puts him down
>people like him now guilt the world into letting them do whatever the fuck they want with complete support
Trust me, you don't want that.
How does someone as retarded as you actually exist? This must be some sort of ruse, this can't be real.
Could you explain why it's retarded? Honestly I'd love to watch anime with sound at at a normal speed, but I cannot watch it with sound because of my parents and I watch it at increased speed so I can get it over with quicker, it just moves too slowly for my tastes. What am I missing out on exactly?
What the fuck is wrong with you people?
I accidentally clicked on reduce speed instead of go back an episode once while watching Kiniro Mosaic. Watched through the entire episode at 0.5 speed.The show suddenly turned 10 times better. The voice acting was absolutely amazing.
>Yeah, let's watch a movie at 3x speed, who cares about the tension and the sound? Ha! Idiots, idiots I tell you!
>People are wasting their time by watching anime at regular speed!
Maybe you shouldn't watch anime at all.
How is it not retarded? Sound is half of the reason to watch anime and at increased speed with no sound you're missing all kinds of shit. You're obviously underage of you're still worried about your parents thinking you watch porn. Just stop and watch at normal speed with headphones or fuck off. You knee this was retarded to begin with since you asked if it was acceptable. Now you know it isn't and can correct yourself or go on being ignorant.
If you have time to post this garbage on /a/ you have time to watch anime at normal speed you humongous faggot /thread.
Do you listen to all your music sped up by x5 too? When eating a piece of hard candy do you straight away put it in your mouth, crush it with your teeth and swallow it? When you play a video game for the first time do you straight away look up a speedrun and play with it acting as a guide, which you follow 100%?
You're a goddamn retard, OP.
Thanks for getting me the maddest I've been at someone in months.
I only once tried a 0.75% speed on wakako-zake, it was comfy af
OP is absolutely retarded, but why in the fuck would you get mad over some stupid shit some retard does that affects nobody in the entire world in any way whatsoever? Do you have crippling autism or something? And I don't mean "haha he's on /a/ which means he's socially awkward and watches anime that's autism xD". I mean actual, full blown autism.
Well OP, congratulations on your big catch.
It's like these faggots don't know the meaning of "ignore and move on."
You're drastically altering the work from how the creators intended. The pacing/timing, sound design, voice acting, etc. All of this is going down the drain just because you've got a poor attention span and because you care way, way too much about what your retarded parents think.
I just refuse to believe there are people this stupid.
Personally I use 1.1x with pitch correction and it saves me around 2 minutes per episode.
The effect is subtle enough that I don't notice it and I usually remember to turn it off during OPs and EDs.
>What am I missing out on exactly?
Nothing at all. Since you've already removed the audio, speeding up what is effectively a slideshow loses nothing if you can take in the images fast enough.
Although if you are going to do that just read manga.
Yeah 2x is too much for me sometimes
I watch anime mainly for the story, it's kind of like watching an animated manga for me when I watch muted. It's not ideal but it's not that bad. I'm not underage I just don't want my parents thinking I'm autistic or something, they'll think I'm a baby or gay or something.
I swear I'm not trolling.
No, well the video game thing I actually do for shitty indie games I get.
It's not my attention span, it's that I want to make the most of my time.
Thing is, they are ALWAYS there. My mom always comes into my room.
>I want to make the most of my time
Do not watch anime. Is this so hard for you to understand? It is what wastes your time the most of all.
Jesus Christ, and you also play videogames? Fuck you you piece of shit. I don't give a fuck about you.
> I really want to experience all the media there is in the world.
Get off of /a/ and get started then. Priority should be to watch every single video uploaded to youtube. This is a good start.
You want to be the ultimate consumer?
Spending your life watching content other people made and not creating content yourself?
I always watch shit at x1.05 for anime and x1.10 for everything else. 2x is just over the fucking line though. I don't want everyone to sound like fucking chipmunks
Why the fuck would you mute your shit though OP? Get some fucking headphones
You need to give your parents the talk. Tell them that this is who you really are and there's nothing they can do to change it. And if they refuse your true-self, threatened them by saying you'll run away from home and move in with your boyfriend.
I watch all episodes of Teekyuu, including OVA and the Nasuno spinoff, at 4x speed whenever a new one comes out.
Nobody is born ready, anon.
I couldn't do a lot of things, but I can do them now.
It's a bit like losing weight - you can stay there, moping that you can't do anything, muh bones, muh genetics, it runs in the family....
But you haven't even tried eating healthy...and you complain that you can't do it.
You're a self-fullfilling prophecy. You tell yourself that you can't draw, write, etc. and it becomes true.
A little effort wouldn't hurt (in the long term). Yeah, not eating your favourite treats may feel really weird at first, but it will pay off in the end.
This. Honestly, I don't even watch much anime anymore, I just go to MAL and read two reviews, then base my opinion on that. Or if it's a short series, I google the name and look at some pictures, and then just call it a day.
>it's that I want to make the most of my time.
That certainly explains why you're on 4chan. In the time this thread has been around, you could've watched at least 2 episodes of anime at normal speed.
>not watching Osaka at 0.1 speed
How much time if saved if you watched a regular 23 minute episode in 1.5x speed? I'm no good with math.
I've never played an anime on fast forward but this sounds pretty good on paper, I might give it a try.
>slightly smoother fps rate
>change should barely be noticeable
>save a few minutes
Let's face it most anime is slower than it actually has to be in order to fill out more time, it makes sense to do it from a market perspective, you get slightly longer episode without any work.
You are all autistic. Just watch it normally.
Don't want to be your mom here but that's some grade school tier math anon, most shit you learn in school is useless but you should at least know how to do some basic division.
How is /a/ this contaminated? From all the possible places on the 5 million terabyte web how do shitlords like OP choose to come here?
I used to do this but then I realized that it was because I was watching unenjoyable garbag, so you may want to pick up better shows OP.
Now I only speed-up video guides and the like, niggers could not be more boring and inefficient if they wanted.
>but I really want to experience all the media there is in the world.
I don't know how many failed infanticides you would need to create a person that believes that rushing through something as fast as possible is "experiencing."
you make the digesting of media sound like a low wage job.
>And I keep it mute so my parents don't hear me watching
>They would think I'm am autist or retard for watching anime
For real? You don't have any confidence in your parents, like they could simply accept your hobbies?
Also, you are the one who creates that scenario, if you stop thinking on what people would think about what you like, then someone should go to your house, put the volume of any Anime you are looking at max volume, bring your parents and tell them: HEY LOOK YOUR FUCKIN SON IS LOOKING ANIME, LAUGH ON HIM AND TELL HIM HE IS A RETARD, HAHAHA.
Cmon dude for real, stop being scared about it.
I don't know man, I was watching Madoka and my brother saw me, and being the good redneck he is said that he would tell my parents I was watching gay porn if I didn't "cut that fucking fag shit out". He works with my dad at his company so he has massive leverage with my parents. I'd move out but I can't afford it at the moment.
What the fuck dude? That sucks :/. I just watch Anime, my parents know, my sister also watches, and I can be relaxed in my room or in the living room watching some shit and my parents will joke on my and my 'Big eyed Chinese cartoons',something they learned to accept.
Try to have a conversation with your brother (before that, you should be in good terms with him, or he owning you a favor) and ask him why he hates that you look Anime, or if you wanna be more direct (don't recommend anyway) ask him why he hates it. The important think is trying to say to him that your hobbies don't affect his fucking lifestyle. Good luck Anon
Coincidentally, I did this for the first time this week. I had like 6 episodes of Ushio To Tora left and wanted to finish it even though I didn't love it. I just wanted to get it over with so I played it at 2x speed. Worked out well.
Why not read manga scans.
You don't need sound and can read at your own pace.
Delete this thread
Delete the OP
Delete everyone who posted in it
I'm glad my dad has been a raging weeaboo since before I was born, and anime has always been okay at my house, else I might have possibly resorted to something retarded like this.
>parents watching anime
I don't think I could handle that
>"Son, did you see that panty shot!?"
>"Ha ha, he fell on top of her in the shower, classic!"
>"We do NOT shittalk my waifu under this roof, son."
>they would think I'm an autist
From what I've seen, they wouldn't be wrong...
Alright, I'll bite.
It's supposed to be fun, not a fucking chore you want to get over with quickly. Don't force yourself to watch something you aren't enjoying just to clear your backlog or any other retarded reason.
What speed does /a/ watch anime at?
I've experimented with it and I'm capable of up to 5x with 100% comprehension, because I can read and comprehend extremely quickly.
In practice I stray more around 3-4x at the maximum. This comes in extremely handy for, among other things
>Not wasting time on filler
>Getting an idea if a series is good (especially compared to the Old, Deprecated ""3 episode"" rule). You can watch 9-12 episodes in the same time, or make a decision 3-6 episodes in and save more time.
>Not wasting time on fetish segments which aren't your cup of tea
>Superior to skipping because you still comprehend what's going on, but it doesn't waste your time, and if there's something interesting in there you still watch it.
>You can easily go back and re-watch or slow down (or speed up) depending on if part of a show is not quite your style
And the main reason
>You can watch far more anime than normalfag casuals do
Anime is usually a really simple medium with incredibly simple plots, so the story doesn't require a 1.00x speed watch through. Maybe if you're watching NGE or another classic / deep series, but for the average seasonal stuff that fills the pages of /a/, you're simply wasting your own time if you watch at 1.00x most of the time.
Why the fuck you faggots want to save time? What would you even do with those extra minutes? shitpost on 4chan? watch more anime? If anime is such a chore for you that you want to end it as fast as you can don't watch in the first place.
So you want to experience all the media there is in the world, but instead of taking your time and enjoying each one you'd rather rush so you can get started with the next one? What kind of fucking life goal is that? Hobbies are supposed to be fun, not a feel like a job.
Even if you start consuming all the media there is nonstop for the rest of your life, you wouldn't be able to finish before you die. Enjoy the present.
I get the muted part, back a few years ago when i got into anime, i would mute it because i would cringe at the over dramatic Japanese (fuck me for watching bleach and death note) and i was still in denial about watching anime, but i don't give a shit now.
I actually used to to this in my college days, though for Western TV series and not for anime. For me, it served to squeeze more episodes into a train ride lasting about 65 minutes.
Best results were obtained around 1.3-1.4, and that includes sound. If you depend on subs, you might have to go slower.
>watch 1-hour episodes reliably without risking interruption by the train stopping at your station
>manage two 40-minute episodes per ride, with no annoying buffer at the end
>squeeze four 20-minute episodes into a single ride, as opposed to the 2-3 you'd realistically be able to do
Doesn't that mean that you're watching just things with incredibly simple plots? Why would you even bother in the first place, if that was your mindset?
Every time this thread pops up, autism this, autism that. You're not enjoying the medium, I appreciate the intricacies of nothing. I have to hand it to OP though, muted is new. And possibly less retarded than watching things at ridiculous speeds.
>and I keep it muted anyways so my parents don't hear me watching.
Holy shit nigger.
You can't watch anime without sound, but increased speed is a good idea. I've been wanting to experiment with it myself, and I watched the last few episodes of White Album 2 at higher speed so I could get over with it quicker. But every time I remember my plans, I am watching something I really enjoy, or that is supposed to be a masterpiece, and I don't want to risk messing with that. But in general, watching a bit faster is a good idea. Oh yeah, I sped up one episode of Last Exile so I could watch it in one train ride, the couple of minutes I save lets me watch the OP, and I don't have to stand on the train station with my laptop open to finish the episode.
Another thing, I experimented with it once, was watching two anime at the same time, but for that to work they'd have to be slow paced because switching your attention that quickly is difficult, and they may be going for different emotions which is just confusing.
My problem with reading manga is that I always try to read as fast as possible so I can't enjoy it. Anime forces me to take it slower so I can enjoy it more.
Why do you even watch anime then? Sure as hell ain't for street cred.
>My whole family knows I watches anime and they don't give a fuck
>all my siblings watch anime
>my mum says my K-on figures look cute
Feels pretty good lads
I remember a guy telling about how he used to just read the transcripts of anime because he couldn't download. Imagined the scenes in his head. Sadly can't remember if I saw it on /a/ or Reddit.
The fastest you should watch anime is about 1.2x-1.3x. There are things that fix the sound, so that isn't an issue.
I also skip OP and ED after watching them once.. I'm not one of those people who watch anime just to say I've watched it, nor do I care how many I've watched.
I simply love anime, and it's impossible to watch all of it in my lifetime. I'm not even watching garbage series, but I do watch a lot of mediocre stuff. I wish people would understand more about why some people choose to watch anime in a faster speed.
>Why the fuck you faggots want to save time?
>watch more anime?
Yes. I actually love anime, unlike a lot of people on here. I also like most genres. Romance of any kind (aside from striclty yaoi, and even then Prunus Girl was cute), I watch manime, moeshit, everything.
There is so much to watch out there that saving 10-40 minutes each series means a lot.
I watch everything at 1.4 and YouTube at 1.25. People have told me I'm just really autistic, but doing this actually ends up saving a lot of time due to how long I spend watching anime everyday. That makes more time for me to continue watching more anime per day.
Again, some call it autism but it's really genius if you can look at it with an open mind.
