I usually don't multitask, as I rely on the subtitles to know what's going on. At best my multitasking is checking emails or something during the opening song

Yes. It's such a terrible habit.

Nope, I give it my full attention. Unless it's dubbed and I'm not really into it.

I do it a lot, even when reading subs. Shows I really like a lot though, I don't do it with. But if I've started watching enough of a show that I'm still interested in seeing it through to the end, but I'm no longer finding it very compelling then it gets only part of my attention while I chat or read forums or stuff like that.

No not really. I need to direct everything I have at the show.

Sometimes I split my attention between drilling hiragana and reading subs, but usually I only do this when I'm watching something I've seen before or that I don't really care about.

And I generally don't watch things I don't care about, so....

I usually have something else going on that I flip back and forth with. Like mahjong or Hearthstone.

And I spend a lot of time browsing the forums; I just paused WIXOSS to write this reply.

IF you're a gamer, you're ALWAYS multitasking!

Seriously though, I've got a huge backlog of games (between Steam, PS3 and PSVita) to get through, and having two monitors helps IMMENSELY. Since I play mostly RPGs, I can watch a scene that has lots of action or exposition while leaving the game, then when nothing is happening (or stuff that's not interesting) I get back to the game.

It's also how I can actively post on the forums while watching anime/playing video games.

If it's a good show, it has my attention. If it is a boring show or episode, then I'll probably multitask. But when you do that, you really aren't paying attention to the show. When this happens, I start rating a show down.

These 2 posts sum how I am pretty much. Though I will admit that my multi-tasking has gone done significantly since I started watching using my Roku. Since I can't play a game and watch the Anime at the same time on my TV, well I could but it'd be annoying to do.

Before my Roku since I have a dual monitor setup I would watch on my 2nd monitor, and have Facebook and the CR forums open up on the main monitor. I'd always be trolling... er... posting information... on the CR forums while I watched a show. If i wasn't doing one of those I had a game up on my xbox ready to play during slow parts of a show.

Now though with the Roku, I sit on my futon to watch the show, so best I do multitasking wise is something on my phone, maybe play a simple game on my 3DS. I'm hoping to learn more Japanese this year or next when I get around to it so I can maybe pay attention to a show while... well not paying attention to it...

Works exactly opposite for me--because my primary computer is a laptop and I don't have a dedicated external monitor for it. So having the Roku makes it easier for me to multitask. Basically watch on the tv, do other stuff on the laptop on my lap while sitting on the couch.

When its a comedy/slice of life. I tend to do it, but when its a story driven anime I don't.
