Do you multitask while watching anime?

Only during ads, some openings, and most endings do I multitask. I could be researching for something in one tab and watch anime in another, writing with my right hand and eating with my left. I'll take a potato chip.*heavy breathing* AND EAT IT!

Nah, I always default to giving it my full attention.

If it's a boring series, I'll just drop it and focus my attention on something else.

Only time I multitask is when I'm grinding/farming on multiple games or playing a game while watching its LP.

Not really.
But for some reason, I tend to become distracted almost every time I watch an ep So often have to skip back a few seconds to catch what the characters said

Well I don't understand Japanese so I have to pay complete attention to know whats going on.
Now when I'm watching dubbed anime sometimes I'll check updates and other things but usually I don't multitask either

No, if I'm multitasking while watching anime, I might as well as stop watching it. I want to watch good shows that can get my full attention. If a show is so boring to me that it's making me do something else, it's much more efficient to just stop watching and get some other stuff done instead.

I can't multitask when I am watching anime. I love them so much!!! That and I need the subtitles. I love everything about animes, the music, voices, the background charaters. If I find myself multitasking that means this anime isn't for me and I stop it for now and try to come back to it later on. Also, I have ad block on my computer so no ads come up when I am watching.

If the anime is sub titled then i will probably be playing a game as well or have a second subbed anime going as well. If it is dubbed I will have two dubbed anime going and play a game. Having this short of attention span is problematic.

Adapting to watching subtitled anime has been a struggle for me, a long blink can make me miss an entire line of text in some circumstances so I've had to become pretty razor focused on watching it.

I piece together enough words and phrases now that I can pay a little less attention, but I still need to watch the screen most of the time.

People who wanna multitask without knowing Japanese should learn to be speed readers lol. The average speed reader reads more than twice as fast as a typical professor and 5x the average adult speed.
