Yes, I'm often on forums while watching anime. I sometimes play games. I have two monitors, so it's easy. To what point I am multitasking depends on how many times I've watched the anime.

Nope, I feel like I'm not absorbing it if I do something else, the visuals are important to me. The most Ill do is eat and watch something, but even then Ill only do it for slice of life animes or something like that where I don't need to pay super close attention. I do kinda get annoyed if I watch something with someone else and they don't pay attention and miss all the little details

Hang on I'm almost done reading the subtitles for what the character is saying. Okay so what's the question?

Good topic btw.

Anyways, I do not! When I'm watching anime, I need the subtitles to understand what the hell is happening so I tend to not multitask. Even looking down at my phone at a text can be enough to miss a couple of lines and I don't like that at all. When I watch anime, it has my full attention.

When it's dub however, that's a different story.

I do multitask while watching anime (when they get a little bit boring) and I've come to realize it makes me lose some connection towards them.
On the other hand, If I'm watching an anime that I really like, I must have no distractions whatsoever and everything must be perfect around me so I can enjoy it

I tried once, it didn't work out. I end focusing so much on the Anime I completely ignore the other thing I was doing.
It was a mistake to start off anyways, Anime is too great to be multi-tasked. =w=

(Unless you consider watching Anime and eating at the same time multi-tasking. I do that all the time. =w=)

No absolutely not...anymore. Tried memorizing and watching anime before an exam in my pathogens class, it was ugly.

I sometimes do when I watch something dub (not all that often). When I watch things subbed I know I need to pay much more attention because there's only so much i understand if i'm not watching the text. Sometimes though I do browse sites when I'm watching something but if i start doing that I'll usually stop watching whatever I am so I don't get lost later on.
