ecplaining ur problem would make u more deppressed, so lets just make it simple, if ur depresed after wathing certain anime, watch something else or go out with ur friends. and yea, many people gets deppresed sometimes when wathing something they dont really like, i get really deppresed when watching school romance animes like boys be.. coz of the stupidity of the main chars.

no not really...life itself is interesting when you make it to be,mostly how u perceive your own life. Sure anime is alot more interesting than real life but its not going to happen. It is something people make up to express their imagination.Its not just anime that does it...movies,tv series and books are all the same.

Have you ever heard of "escapism"?

Plus, it's a given that shows, and not necessarily anime in general, have to have some sort of appeal that makes them "more interesting that normal life". It's the entertainment value of being able to "escape" the normal world, for just a while, that makes people tune in to shows and heighten the ratings.

You'd be naive to think that anything shown on shows is anywhere near the real world. The TV show world is an ideal world, at best ~ so I don't think you should be depressed to reflect on your life as ordinary. Find it in you to seek out the joy in your own life, and you'll see it isn't all that "normal" after all.


entertainment in general never reflects reality..it's all about DRAMA! but still in many cases TV land doesn't always show an ideal world, such as Elfen Lied...i guess one thing about anime that makes it seem much more interesting than reality is that the characters are all struggling so hard towards a goal or something...i think, anime characters show lots of determination, that failure is not an option, so it makes their situations seem all that more important and dramatic.. in reality, most people don't care or would just give up and walk away..i guess if you analysis every thing in your life and actually cared you'd see how much there's to it.

Its not depressing if you have other stuff to mix in too, maybe if you had nothing else to do except watch anime all day then yeh it might be depressing...

The people who make the anime make the story interesting in order to grab the audience's attention. Or at least try to get them interested in it.

It only depresses me when it's over...or if somebody dies. I strive to make my life interesting every single day like Haruhi Suzumiya!

that's how the creators feel as well. they want to captivate you, make you feel as if you are there. true, you will never fly through space in a little ship looking for outlaws, encounter a fairy that gives you a magic violin, fight a giant nine tailed fox, become a phantom theif, etc. but watching an anime can make these expiriences that much more real. I wish it was real life too, but some things can only take shape through anime, books, manga, movies, pictures, songs imagination and dreams
