How Has Crunchy roll Influenced You?
Posted 1/12/11
This is my new account but i joined Cr a couple of years back in late 06 early 07. Back then to say i was lost would be over statement. I was a really depressed and angry kid like most teens are :mellow:. At first i didn't really embrace the fact i liked anime it was something alot of people around dumped on so i hid myself quite alot -probably the reason why Ive become socially withdrawn :mellow:-. after making my first Cr Page met 4 people that i now consider my family -i have known them for 4 years after all-. Thanks to me coming to Cr and meeting the most wonderful people i have ever meet i embraced y inner otaku and was able to develop a real sense of self and identity. Since i was so depressed and i meet those people they've been a literal life savior - i attempted suicide a few years ago- ever since then and their kindness Ive been able to pull myself out of the dirt countless times.

So thank you Crunchy Roll For A Renewed Me

Glad they could help (since I dont think we have met before) either way im gla to know your suicide attempt was a failed one. In adittion I can state that I have felt somewhat similar to you. I have been and continue to be a part in multiple websites that have many wonderful people. This website is no excepton. I have met many people here who are very nice people willing to help others when they need help or even when they simply wish to talk about anything and everything.

I also have noticed people on these websites I am part of seem to be nicer then most people I meet in reality. Is this odd I wonder. Anyway thats getting a little off topic. I believe websites such as this have been a very good impact on my life. Especialy if you are usualy a socialy withdrawn person in reality having people you can talk to and count on is always a good thing. Im glad you found friends and im glad you are made happy by those you have come to know and accept as family here on crunchyroll.

I don't illegally watch anime anymore, I support it through CR. So I guess, Yuh.

I always looked at it as a pretty relaxing escape. No real influence, but a good thing.

It has made me realized that most people don't check whether or not their sources are correct.

Honestly, I have more patience for people now.
Well...except when I'm on the bus or subway. That's a whole different situation.

I really don't say it's influenced me....It's just made me realize how annoying some anime fans really are

CR has turned me into a forum voyeur in this little patch of cyberspace where the wild things are..

in short i'm the guy who hangs around the zoo just to watch animals fuck each other.

edit: bad analogy.. i know

Well, I've only been on the forums for a few days, but I've been on crunchyroll longer than that.

A few not so good things I've Noticed: Spreading misinformation. Talking about subjects with authority that comes from nowhere. Talking about things you know nothing about like you're an expert. Not doing even a quick google search for confirmation/denial. Not researching more complex topics. Much more wide-spread prejudice, discrimination, hatred, expressed violence (that may or may not actually be happening in real life), insults, and demeaning of others - moreso than I see in real life.

As far as good things... Humor (Anime Motivational Posters, for example), reviews, certainly interesting, occasionally thought-provoking, and a good way to pass time. (I'm sure I'll find far more good things the longer I'm on here).
