Choose the right anime movies
It is challenging to choose the right movies but you can start with Studio Ghibli. The studio is famous not only in Japan but also the whole world following its successes from My Neighbor Totoro to Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. It was Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata who founded the studio in 1985.
Studio Ghibli is internationally acclaimed. In fact, seven of its films are among the 15 highest grossing anime films made in Japan. Its first movie was Castle in the Sky. Other known anime movies include The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, My Neighbors the Yamadas’, Only Yesterday, The Wind Rises and many more.
Plan your breaks
Before getting started, it is important that you plan your breaks. Do not compromise your bathroom break or meal breaks because you do not want to miss a thing. You should make good use of the pause feature so you can still do things like going to the bathroom, cooking or reheating a meal, etc.
It is time to get started. When you watch, it is important that you get comfortable so you get to enjoy the movies. Check the room temperature first and make sure that you do not freeze or be sweaty in the middle of your movie marathon. It is better to watch on your sofa. While the bed is tempting, you will likely fall asleep any minute.
Protect your eyes
Movie marathon, by definition, is watching multiple movies (or TV series) in rapid succession. This means that you will spend a lot of time in front of the TV screen. For this, you are exposing your eyes to millions of pixels. At one point in time, the eyes will become tired and it will start to hurt. If you have plans movie marathon this week, you should protect your eyes. There are many glasses available without a prescription that can help you protect your eyes from digital screens every day. The glasses work by reducing the glare thereby reducing the strain to your eyes.
Prepare your food
Sometimes you get so captivated with the movie that you forget everything else. It is important that you eat especially if you are looking for a whole day of movie marathon. You can stash granola bar, coffee, and cereal if you like. If you want to indulge, pizza or any take out will never fail. In other words, stock up on food and drink.
Do not forget to sleep
Do not forget to sleep. It is easy to stay up all night movie marathon but sleep is the body’s requirement. If you want to have the energy the day after tomorrow, you should ensure that you sleep – no matter how captivating the movies are.
