Do you think Anime is a waste of time, even if you enjoy it?

The anime itself is not a waste of time, but I waste a lot of time watching anime.

Then you have stupid anime that are a waste of time no matter how you look at it.

I don't think its a waste of time. I prefer to watch anime just like some people like to watch NCIS and CSI. The advantage I have is most anime stories are deep and eventually end as opposed to some tv shows that are in their ninth and tenth season

Well put. What you've said right there is along the lines of utility calculus, as defined by Jeremy Bentham. He claimed that there were only two values in the world, pain and pleasure. His work regarded all pleasure as equal. Something was utile if it decreased pain or increased pleasure, and was not utile if it increased pain or decreased pleasure. So because anime increases pleasure, then under Bentham's definition, it would indeed increase utility.

However, at the same time, utility can be used to counter what you said. One of the most famous lines in J.S. Mill's Utilitarianism is "It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied." He divides pleasures into higher and lower orders, the distinction coming mainly from the presence of intellectual stimulation. Anime I would argue falls into lower order. Sure sometimes it may bring out intellectual stimulation (such as the concept of war featured heavily in Gundam, or the idea of one person passing judgment on supposed criminals in Death Note), but the same ideas could be studied at a much amplified volume via studying the theory behind it directly.

So long story short, since I always bought into Mill's theory of utility more than Bentham's, I'd have to go with yes, it's a waste of time. Similarly though, a lot of things are a waste of time (it's nearly impossible to be in the first world and not waste time, really), and so it's more a matter of what you do to minimize your wasting of time rather than whether or not you waste it at all.


shut up. i got tired reading this at the 5th word. ;D no offense _|_
