IDK if this is a dupe or if it's in the wrong place but in any case...

Have you ever been motivated to start doing something after watching an anime?

It does seem like a petty reason to start anything and stuff often is glamorized but look at a couple examples--

For instance, there've been quite a few Hajime no Ippo fans that become interested in boxing (you can tell from a google search of the terms that turn up more Ippo related things than not)

EDIT: I'm one of the mentioned Ippo fans, but my friends actually got me interested in boxing before I ever watched it--it motivated me to actually start though--

It was also noted somewhere that many kids picked up guitars after having played Guitar Hero/Rock Band

--so you never know.




Have you joined any teams, began any sports, become interested in a career path, etc?

Sure. I think I've even picked up mannerisms like characters in animes.

I'm not sure if this counts, but after watching Yakitate! Japan, I was motivated to find a good bakery in Los Angeles. I really wanted to try some good bread. I did go to a few bakeries, but was a little disappointed by some. Los Angeles places tend to be more trendy than actually good.

Beck also motivated me to pick up the bass guitar. I haven't been able to practice much, but I started the bass a year ago. I'll probably try to get lessons soon, but yeah... I've just been busy with school.

I guess Initial D also got me more interested in cars. It didn't really motivate me to go racing, but I probably wouldn't have done any mods to my car if it wasn't for Initial D.

Naruto also inspired me to watch more anime. That probably doesn't really count, but yeah... It wasn't my first anime, but it was one of the animes that made me really want to watch other ones.

I think it would be some of the mannerisms I've seen anime that's related to school, like Clannad. you know, how the students greet each other & to speak to them
