i've always been a fast reader, just ask any kid who went to school with me, and about 3 years ago we had Directv and i watched my english shows with captions for no apparent reason...strangely i had a severe aversion to watching anime with subtitles up until a year ago despite that...dont know why. but i dont really think my speed has changed, but it has helped me casually pick up a bit of Japanese so i dont have to study the language as intensely as i used to

It has helped me with pronunciation and ... well getting used to japanese in general. I've always been a fast reader so I do not think my reading has improved by it.

It's helped me be able to multitask if that makes sense. Being able to watch an anime while reading the subtitles seems easy enough but sometimes you can miss certain scenes ect. It's even helped catch on to certain words to be able to understand or even speak japanese at a basic level.

I used to read a but load before i replaced it with anime. Quite frankly the vocabulary with books was much more complex and intracate so therefore reading improved my vocabulary more than anime it also made me more fluent in general since i tended to read aloud. So in general while anime can help reading is much better. Of course i mean reading books so you smart a's that are gonna say that i am reading.. no just no.

You get used to what some words sound like but other than that, no.

Watching subbed anime didn't help much for me.
I read books for fun but it did help out when there is multiple characters speaking at once.
