When I was younger I watched anime a lot more...A few years have gone by and I've been watching anime less now I'm planing to get into it more...I've started to watch Nanana's Buried Treasure and No Game No Life I don't know whats up but I seem to be struggling with reading the subtitles they go by so fast I have to pause and read...Is there anyway I can idk get my eyes use to reading faster...This was never an issue for me xD silly question here. I'd like to read with ease but I can't read fast enough and before I know it the text is gone x.x...

Read more, say the subs out loud, or just rewind when you miss something. If i didn't quite catch something i always rewind.

All you have to do is read more if u cant keep up pause to read then continue and the more u get better at it the faster u will be able to keep up.

I had the same problem when I started to watch subtitles again after watching dubs for about a year >.<

Just keep watching and reading what you can. I wouldn't pause every time because that breaks the immersion. Rewatch if necessary. I really struggled with Clannad after returning to subs and I found that if I paused every time, I read actually started reading slower because I read at my own pace! Just keep watching and you'll get the hang of it again!

See I have the opposite problem of reading too fast... it's great for Anime because I can quickly read whats happening then continue to watch the scene. But for books and Manga it is annoying cause I go through them so fast that I run out of things to read...

Lucky Star was like this for me (not enough time to read subtitles). BTW, pressing the left arrow on the keyboard goes back 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, click (or double-click) on the video and then try again.

look to the middle of the subtitles first and then skim with your eyes. zoom out to make the subtitles smaller if that helps.
