Why do you do it Anon?
What do you mean by embarrassing?
I sometimes need to pause so my dad doesn't think I'm a lolicon.
I just can't deal with misunderstandings.
It took me like one hour every time I watched a Watamote episode
I don't know why it just happens.
I mostly stopped the pacing around the room part though.
I never manged to even finish Watamote because of embarrassment.
same, I couldn't deal with the cringe
It's like 'Nam flashbacks, only with my complete social retardation instead of a war.
I can barely stand embarrasing or akward moments. I cannot watch the Office because of this.
I also have this condition, does it have a name?
Getting through the Kaiji 3 manga was hilarious and painful when he lost his tiles.
I never do that.
be proud of what you are anon
I find embarassment comforting. It makes me feel like I'm not alone.
Am I the only goddamned person who doesn't do this? I've never had to do this. I've seen some scenes that were so wildly hilarious that I had to stop for a second. Sort of like those "OKAY, I'M OUT" moments.
This is only done by people who haven't watched a lot of anime.
I know people who do this watching regular TV. They just feel uncomfortable watching other people embarrass themselves.
But I don't.
What is Vicarious Embarrassment, Alex?
Who the fuck does this? The only time I bother pausing or minimizing something is when I'm trying to hide my power level from my roommates when an ecchi scene or some shit.
why contain it
So my roommates don't misjudge anime as hentai since that's what casuals usually generalize it as. Aside from that, I have no shame when I'm watching it.
I know, right?
Same. Especially when they could easily be cleared up by giving a fifteen second explanation.
Welp have been reading KnJ recently too and my mom went in on me reading that scene where Rin kisses Aoki in the park. She asked me what the fuck is going on on my screen and I said that I'm reading a good story about young teacher who does his best so that he could protect his beloved students and it is in fact my future profession to be teaching kids so I have to set examples for myself.
I can't stand to watch real life spaghetti spilling without cringing, but to fiction, let alone animation? That's pretty silly.
This is hilarious, did you come up with that line yourself?
Pic says everything.
I don't do that.
I do that, I also blush when it comes to cheesy confessions.
I don't do that with anime, however I can tell you that I leave my chair and walk around in circles every time I make an embarrassing post.
I'm one of those people. Embarassing moments just make me cringe too much, I can't stand to watch. Also stuff like Mysterious GF X I had to NOPENOPE out of the anime. I can handle it in manga format, but all that drool animated was just disgusting.
I certainly don't pause it. All that does is prolong the embarrassment.
I only pause if someone knocks on my door. I don't want them to see the ecchi shit that I watch.
I get such bad secondhand embarrassment, I couldn't get through the first episode of Watamote. There's all sorts of shit I can't sit through because of it. My crippling social phobia probably lends itself to this. Even someone else's embarrassment leaves me mortified.
>I also blush when it comes to cheesy confessions.
I get a boner.
I have no idea why I do this. I usually pause it, get up walk around for a minute or so then go back to watching.
>actually doing these things
Jesus Christ, what a pathetic bunch of autists.
Welcome to /a/
You must be new here.
I do that too. Sometimes it's bad enough where I lay on the floor for a bit.
>It's fine that I'm an autistic retard because it's part of board culture!
I can't help it, it hurts.
The only time I pause is when I forgot to read the subs during more intense scenes.
fuck my life
I hit the 5 second skip
