I occasionally watched with friends a long time ago. Now I just watch alone. I don't mind watching with others who would enjoy the show but it's more convenient to watch alone.

Yes. (one of the advantages of watching alone btw )

I used to watch anime infront of my computer until I bought a new 46'' hd tv and Popcorn Hour. Unfortunately not all subtitles work with Popcorn Hour

How do you watch anime?
In a badly lit room much less than 3m away from my PC monitor.

Do you sit on your computer chair while watching anime?
No, I switch to a more comfortable chair.

Do you crawl into the bed?
Yes, after watching (sometimes).

Do you eat or smoke during anime?
I don't smoke. I sometimes eat.

Do distractions bother you?
Depends on the interest in the anime. But hardly.

Do you prefer watching anime alone?
Yes. Watching anything requires to keep your mouth shut anyway. I only watch with friends if they have the better equipment.

Sometimes.

How do you watch anime?
At my PC most of the time, occasionally on the TV while on a couch.

Do you sit on your computer chair while watching anime?
Yes.

Do you crawl into the bed?
Nope.

Do you eat or smoke during anime?
I don't smoke. I often watch while eating meals though.

Do distractions bother you?
Maybe if it's a particularly exciting or dramatic part.

Do you prefer watching anime alone?
Yes. I used to watch with friends a long time ago, but it's much more convenient with anime to watch what I want when I want, and to do other things with friends.

Do you sometimes pause the video to check a particular something?

I constantly pause the show to fool around on websites, again, unless there what I'm watching is particularly captivating.

Do you sometimes think about something else while watching anime?

Similar answer to the above question.

Hmm...
How do you watch anime?
Near the monitor, in a well-lit room (for anime streams/torrents).

Do you sit on your computer chair while watching anime?
Yes, but most of the time I switch to different sitting positions because watching can be backbreaking.

Do you crawl into the bed?
When I watch on a laptop, yes.

Do you eat or smoke during anime?
No, most of the time.

Do distractions bother you?
I'm kinda used to distractions since the PC is in the same place where they watch their soap operas/TV shows/whatever.

Do you prefer watching anime alone?
I'm not technically alone in the room when I watch anime, but I'm always the only one watching anime.

Do you sometimes pause the video to check a particular something?
Yeah, but that occurs after I've watched an episode and has discovered some easter egg I needed to check on the episode I just watched.

Do you sometimes think about something else while watching anime?
Well, other anime, analyzing the situation... those are a few kinds of thoughts swimming in my brain when I watch anime. Though for some I just watch and not care about those thoughts.

How do you watch anime?
I watch videos/DVDs while having a cup of tea
and a manga book near-by. However, sometimes
I have withdrawls from playing my Gameboy so
I always have it close to me just incase. :3

Do you sit on your computer chair while watching anime?
I never seem to leave it. Heehee. x3

Do you crawl into the bed?
Nope~!

Do you eat or smoke during anime?
I always have a cup of tea.

Do distractions bother you?
Depends if it is a life or death situation.
If it's not critical then yes, they do irritate me. Dx<

Do you prefer watching anime alone?
No-one will put up with my animes so yes. x]
If someones around when I watch them,
they are usually complaining about having
to sit through "silly cartoons". >___<

Do you sometimes pause the video to check a particular something?
Yes, I usually check the time or my emails
to check when my younger sister and
brother will be home. Just so I'm ready.

Oh! And to have bathroom breaks. xD

Do you sometimes think about something else while watching anime?
It depends if the anime is one of my favorites.
If it's one of my favorites, I'm lost within the story.
If it's one that I just like, I intend to daydream every so often.

I watch most of the stuff on the computer... but with the series I have on DVD, I play them on my Playstation 3 hooked up to my Samsung 32 inch LCD HDTV since it looks alot better since it upscales to 720p.

Mostly on my PC. Some on a flat screen TV and off of a DVD.

Like Slice of Life, I'll usually switch to a more comfortable chair that's good for lounging.

No.


Quote:

I don't smoke. I often eat if I'm watching English dubbed anime. I usually don't eat if I'm watching subbed anime since I find that eating can distract from the subtitles, and I hate to miss a subtitle line.


Quote:

Do distractions bother you?
Definitely. I like to have the radio and all TVs turned off.


Quote:

Usually. Sometimes I watch with a cousin of mine that's also a big anime fan.


Quote:

Yes. I also sometimes re-watch a particular portion of an anime episode that particularly stood out to me.


Quote:

Only if the anime itself spurs the thought (i.e. if Zero starts talking politics in Code Geass, I might start thinking about politics in general).

I tend to like a fairly immersive experience with my anime.


Good thread idea.

How do you watch anime?
On my computer in my room with my 19" 1366x768 monitor. (Hopefully getting an HDMI cable for it soon.) I use headphones.

Do you sit on your computer chair while watching anime?
Yes, my 40 year old chair with a pillow to better support my back.

Do you eat or smoke during anime?
No, I have to look at what I'm eating to eat, and that'd take my eyes off the screen as I want to see every second and detail of the show I'm watching + subs.

Do distractions bother you?
Hell yes, I can't watch anime when someone's vacuuming or if I'm really hungrey etc. I need peice and quite. I close all other windows and programms (unless I'm downloading another episode) while I watch anime.

Do you prefer watching anime alone?
I actually don't know, because I've only ever watched anime by myself because I don't know anyone else IRL that likes anime as much as I do, and not just that, but the anime I like as well.
Probably not, but if so, they'd have to be quite and wait until after the episode to comment on it.

Do you sometimes pause the video to check a particular something?
If I have a feeling I won't be able to finish reading the subs in time or if something really outragous happens I'll pause to take it all in.

Do you sometimes think about something else while watching anime?
Most of the time, no, this usually only happens when I watch something for the second time.

I recently put together a "Holy Grail" setup for the single user.

1 leather recliner + 1 24" 1080p monitor two feet away = Entertainment Bliss

The issue was how to put that monitor in front of me. I couldn't mount it on the wall, and any floor mount would have to be large and heavy, and VESA mounting hardware is expensive if not custom made. Then I found the Standers Able Tray, which works marvelously so long as I keep weight on the foot opposite the monitor's weight. Sure, I get some flack from friends for having a "senior citizen lifestyle enabling device", but well, my friends don't use big monitors from their recliners.

Spoiler for Almost the Holy Grail:


I'm sad to say my monitor is a TN panel and therefore only capable of 6 bit color, but even my picky eye is satisfied with it the majority of the time, and the price was good enough I wasn't going to complain. No desk means no place to mount speakers, but I use headphones (Sennheiser HD201--the best on a budget) to keep from inflicting my noise on others. Laptop drives the monitor via DVI, leaving the HDMI port for the game console (which pipes sound via optical S/PDIF through the laptop to get it to the headphones).

Ultimately, I would prefer a very large TV. There has been no progress made in bringing 120Hz displays to computer monitors, and frankly the close focal point and headphones can get a little fatiguing (I work and play from this setup, so the extended hours take their toll). When I don't have to worry about other people and feel freer to move my activity into central areas, I'll be eyeing a 50"+ LED backlit Samsung and whatever surround sound system I piece together. I'll likely retain my current setup even then, though, because for work it is really nice to be able to lean in and study individual pixels.

Do you eat or smoke during anime?
As long as the eating process won't distract from the screen--or make too much noise, distracting from the audio--I enjoy combining the two. Part of this is enjoying two comforts at once. Another part is hating to eat without multitasking (It just seems like time wasted!)

Do distractions bother you?
Generally speaking, I really don't "get" how distractions don't bother other people. My family is content to watch a movie with a child screaming and running in front of the television set, then pausing the movie halfway to put the child to bed and make dessert... That drives me crazy.

No distractions for me. Everything must be set before I settle in to enjoy something. Lights set, food and drink prepared, video set for full screen...

And no interrupting! I had to pause to go do something inconsequential for some one in the middle of the closing episode of the final arc in Clannad's After Story. Murderous rage was suppressed... or would have been if I wasn't too busy crying my eyes out.

Of course, for something I don't really care about, it doesn't matter as much. I enjoy Seitokai no Ichizon fairly well, but I often watch it in windowed mode to allow for multitasking and pause it on occasion.

Do you prefer watching anime alone?
I never really understood how parking in one's seat and staring at a screen was a social event. Now, things that I enjoy I frequently want to share with other people, so I enjoy watching it with them at that point. There are a few people I share fandom of certain things enough to watch communally on a more general basis, but with anime that's even harder, because I've crossed some linguistic and cultural gaps that mean I enjoy different elements of the shows at a different level, and it makes it really hard to relate with even most of my other friends that enjoy some anime. ...and all of these people I know live hundreds of miles away, so it's a moot point.

Do you sometimes pause the video to check a particular something?
On occasion. For a Shaft show? About a hojillion times per episode.

How do you watch anime?

Usually on my laptop. Unless I'm watching with a family member or friend, then it's on the TV.

Do you sit on your computer chair while watching anime or crawl into bed?

If I'm getting ready for bed then I get comfortable in bed, but if I just want to watch some episodes I'm in my computer chair.

Do you eat or smoke during anime?

I don't smoke, so no to that. I do however eat while watching. Even with subs I manage to keep an eye on what's being said while keeping an eye on my food to make sure I don't make a mess.

Do distractions bother you?

Yes. Who wouldn't they bother?

Do you prefer watching anime alone?

If it's an anime I haven't seen yet, then yes I prefer being alone. People I usually watch with tend to talk during the episodes and it can get distracting. The only exception to this is when I'm watching with someone online. I can do a lot better juggling watching an episode while typing to someone than watching an episode while talking.

Do you sometimes pause the video to check a particular something?

Only if I've seen the episode before or if it's a boring episode.

Do you sometimes think about something else while watching anime?

Again, only if I've seen it before or if it's boring.

Heck yeah, where else would I sit?

Do you crawl into the bed?
Um, no.

Do you eat or smoke during anime?
Nope.

Do distractions bother you?
I get so pulled in that I don't even notice.

Do you prefer watching anime alone?
Yeah, usually... Only if whoever I'm watching with is as big of an anime freak as I am.

Do you sometimes pause the video to check a particular something?
Yes! All the time!

How do you watch anime?
With my eyes!

Do you sit on your computer chair while watching anime?
I don't have a computer chair, so no. I sit on the bed, or at the dining table.

Do you crawl into the bed?
Sometimes, if it's cold.

Do you eat or smoke during anime?
Yes, I tend to watch or read things when I'm eating, though I don't have any money for cigarettes so I don't smoke while watching anime.

Do distractions bother you?
Not particularly, no.

Do you prefer watching anime alone?
It doesn't really matter to me.

Do you sometimes pause the video to check a particular something?
Sometimes I will go back because I saw something weird and was like, wait what... but usually I don't stop in the middle to check TVTropes or a wiki or anything.

Do you sometimes think about something else while watching anime?
Yeah usually thinking about other things when I watch (any) TV.

I watch all of my anime on my laptop. I first find them, since I'm not allowed to download torrents and the like, I have to find streaming and sometimes pay for it. However, once I find the episodes for a show, if I like it I usually watch the show nonstop till I finish it. As such it takes me about a day and a half on average to finish a 26 episode anime. I have it down to a science where I can watch 3 "half hour" episodes in an hour (since they usually only have 18-20 minutes of actual content). If I can't find a show that's subbed then I won't watch it. I can't stand english dubbing and so I simply omit shows that don't allow me to watch with subbing. I also get some of my anime (such as films and licensed shows) via netflix and watch with the original Japanese audio and English subtitles on there.

How do you watch anime?
Laptop

Do you sit on your computer chair while watching anime?
