I know what you mean. I was first introduced to anime about 5 years ago and now it has become an important part of me. When im stressed out, its what calms me down. i love being taken into their worlds and enjoy the emotional roller coasters. The characters teach you a few things as well. So in short, no its not weird or crazy. It's awesome!

hi guys, Lately all of the anime i've been watching has had to capture a strange feeling in my heart. Its really hard to explain but i'll try. Have you ever watched a show and wished that you could be apart of there world. Maybe get away from this world, I have the need to escape from this world. Certain animes like Angel Beats! have definitely helped me. Is this normal



I thought I was the only one that got caught up in anime shows. When I watched the last episode of Ghost in the Shell: 2nd Gig, I felt so angsty and emotional. This was not something that only lasted a few hours. It was days before I got back to normal. The same thing happened when I watched Avatar, both the animated series and the James Cameron film. Both were so epic, I could not sleep the night after watching. I know these last two don't count as anime, but it is related to what you're asking.

to have any emotional connection means that your empathy level is pretty high. it's a good thing. ^__^

You're normal. Think of it like you got into a really awesome book. You want to be apart of that world so you get the next one (if it's in a series) or you collect the author's books. The author of the book and creator of the anime wanted you to have those feelings so that you could return to their work and they in turn can return you into a fantastical world.

I totally understand what you guys are saying,it's more to a feeling of emptiness in your heart after watching an anime you get really engrossed in,like I just finish guilty crown and the feeling is there,is comes when the anime I think (subconsciously) isn't finished yet like the ending should have gone differently.

Hmm yeah...Normally it's when I'm reading a manga though. I feel sucked in, and sometimes if I fall asleep reading manga I dream about the characters which is often. But something about reading words and seeing pictures at the same time is like a double imprint in my mind, and I feel almost a bond with the manga. With most books, but manga too.

There have been a few animes I've felt an extreme connection to. And in recent times that'd be FMA and Darker Than Black. Most shonen and shoujo I don't feel a connection unless it's manga. But I cry EVERYTIME I watch FMA and Brotherhood. Though in Naruto, I cry everytime I read the Zabuza arc. I do feel a connection to Naruto, but more so the manga (when I used to read it). I did practically sob when Naruto was reaching out to Gaara and the similiaries in their childhood. The anime captured that perfectly, and nothing tugs at my heart more than bond and friendships stories...nothing.

Yes it is normal i nearly cry sometimes when Bruce from the galaxy railways gets shot and dies. Man stuff by Leiji Matsumoto makes me wanna cry or relate to the character so it is very normal to relate or feel bad for the character or bawl your eyes out not that i have done that...... yet....

If I'm not emotionally affected by an anime, I won't watch it. Death Note moved me, Durarara moved me, Eden of the East moved me, Fullmetal Alchemist moved me (when they weren't putting in stupid jokes and chibi faces), and Code Geass moved me. It's typically darker animes that I'm moved by because they can stuff so many sad emotions into it, but that's just me.

Fullmetal Alchemist and Gurren Lagann struck a chord with me for sure.

Edit: Trigun too

There were already a few posts that made the same point I agree with. Immersing yourself in the worlds, forgetting your troubles, growing attached to the characters.

I get attached to every anime I watch in one way or anther. If you couldn't feel drawn to the characters and the story and setting then what's the point? That's what makes anime special to me. There are things about it that other forms of media or genres or whatever you want to call them just don't have, or not in the same way.
