Good, I'm glad it is a known characteristic of that particular anime and not some mental deficiency I've recently acquired. I was having to pause or rewind multiple times to catch what was going on. So much so, that I've taken a break from that series.

I'll try to stick it out and see if the number of times I need to pause or rewind per episode decreases over time.

Don't worry it's aquired over time, if you love anime and watch enough you'll be like damn I read fast. My friends used to say that in class, who said anime couldn't help you with real world skills, lol.

The only show that I had any problem with was Tatami Galaxy's intros but they were all the same so after the first episode it didn't bother me.

I guess theres a line I miss every once in a while but its never been bad enough for me to complain

As a homeschooler, I was able to hit college reading level at a very young age. Around seven years old, I think. I now read at around 750 words per minute. I haven't watched Bakemonogatari yet but I am sure I could definitely get through it without rewinding. So, for me, it came naturally.

As for someone who is not able to speed read naturally, I strongly suggest reading something you enjoy. Anything. Even sexual fiction that is in writing. If you get excited in what you read, you will naturally want to read faster. Carrot in front; stick in the back. You've got the carrot of reading faster to see what happens, and the stick of not catching up fast enough. Simple for me, maybe not for you, but it helped me in the long run.

Hope it works for you!

You just have to get used to it. I find that watching a movie or something in a language Im not familiar with (I pretty much just watch japanese, french, german and korean shows) its a little harder because I'm not used to pace and tone of the language. If that makes sense

The more you watch it, the easier it will become.

I want to know if you can read all of Monogatari without pausing though. You won't know what I mean until you watch it.

Huh. I guess I'll watch an episode and report back with my findings. Thanks!

There are times when two people are talking and I just read one of the lines, I really care less if I miss a few lines here or there, but if I get confused I go back. Sometimes I read something and I don't understand it and just rewind, You'll probably get faster at reading, I would just try to focus and read fast, but well pausing isn't really that bad, I mean I would think you catch 90-95% of the lines so you wouldn't have to pause it much. Sometimes when Iam tired I get the feeling I miss something but still know whats going on because I read enough to understand. I wouldn't really worry about speed too much it will just sort of come.

Is it even possible for someone to read ALL of monogatari's pop up messages without pausing even once?

Only in the Monogatari series...and thats because SHAFT and 2 second transitions with a wall of text is standard.

If they do have such a memory, then possibly, but I'm sure even they would struggle a bit, and still doubt most of them would be able to read them all. ....now I feel like re-watching monogatari and have my brain screwed over by them again.
