>Watch anime on PC

Full of distractions like porn and 4chan

>Watch anime on my TV via PS3

No distraction at all and enjoying the show on a big screen

How do people complete anime on a PC when it's full of distractions?

>OH YOUR ATTENTION SPAN IS JUST TOO LOW

PCs were made for multitasking but never anime.

Take your shit consolewars to /v/, piece of shit.

With two simple steps

Step One: Watch the anime

Step Two: Finish it

>On 4chan at the same time
>Loads of tabs open

Its not easy.

>watch anime

It's pretty easy.
>>
>>100628679
It's really not.
>>
>>100628519
I agree, it's pretty hard. Most anime is incredibly dumb or boring so I can't help but want to stop it numerous times.
It's funny, though, because I can easily watch 3 hour-long films.

>>100628658

THEN
watch said anime
its is easy

>>100628519

Otherwise I would never finish a series.

You watch anime, then you browse /a/ whilst reading LNs, manga, or VNs
>>
You must not like what you're watching, that and/or short attention span.

I like watching anime on my TV just because it's a bigger screen and better sound. The fact that I can't multitask is just a bonus.

But I can sympathize with anons who live in situations where they can't have their Chinese cartoons blaring loudly or in full view.

Stop projecting your mental issues into others.

Not our problem you have the attention span of a toddler.
>>
How do you accomplish anything?

Step one: anime is full screen.

Step two: turn off your other monitor(s).

Step three: wow you are watching anime you did it

I mean really how do you need an instruction manual for this shit
>>
>>100629347
As soon as you turn off the monitor you'll turn it right back on.
>>
>>100629292
There are some people who will spend almost all of their time on /a/ and barely touch anime. Like hell I'll let that happen to me.

>>100629331
Who says I can't masturbate while watching anime?
>>
>>100629387
Stop embarrasing yourself OP
>>
This: >>100628719
Most anime is not that interesting, to be honest.

If you feel that you're really struggling with this, then try to use your PC as a TV while you watch anime or other media. Sit down far from the screen (depends on your monitor I guess), get as comfy as you can, maybe grab something to eat... whatever you can do to feel comfortable and as far from the mouse/keyboard so browsing 4chan doesn't seem so inviting.

Still this, tho: >>100628719
>>
>>100629404
Uh, I masturbate while watching anime all the time, that's not the point.
>>
Is this the /v/ thread? Friendly reminder that Xboxes are considered trash in anime, you never see a Nintendo console past the SNES in anime, and Sony & Bandai basically owns the entire anime industry. Also SquareEnix publishes many great manga, including your beloved Watamote.
>>
>People don't have attention spans
>People post on /a/ while reading manga
>People use 2 screens to watch anime and post on /a/

I fucking hate you all. If you ever complain about anything in a show you watched while "multitasking" you should probably kill yourself for being an idiot.

>>People use 2 screens to watch anime and post on /a/
Nah you do one, then you do the other. interlaced, half-assed both of them.That's how it works, doesn't matter how many screens you got it doesn't change the fact we can't concentrate on two things at the same time. multiple monitors is for facilitating window management by reducing the need for it and peripheral alerts, neither of which apply to web-browsing and video watching.
>>
>>100628519
i very much prefer the distractions, especially with a great series that i don't want to end.

watch half episode, do something else, then finish it.
>>
>>100629504
This is not even real watching. No wonder /a/ seems really casual. People don't treat even their hobby seriously.

>>100629604
OP you literally have a mental issue.
>>
>>100629604
maybe you don't actually like anime if you can't sit still and pay attention for 24 minutes

OP just doesn't like anime very much, he's clearly a casual.

If he liked to watch anime then he'd watch anime, it'd be foremost on his priorities.

>>100629967
Much clearer to read text and a better size to do it with too. And no moving away isn't the same.

There are differences concerning the decoding but that's not relevant to anything but video games. Scaling can be odd.

The word "monitor" actually does mean something you know.

It had so few games they needed to make another console just to pad their numbers.

Yeah but ps3 always fucks up the subs, and sometimes its tough to find hardsubs

It's easy when a show is excellent, like KLK.

There's a lot for me to take in, appreciate, and interpret. I never find myself multi-tasking because my mind stays occupied.

It's actually good input. Downloading via xdcc is superior in just about every way when compared to torrenting.
