When I really got into anime the first time in high school I didn't have many friends to hang out with and too much time on my hands. I watched anime to fill up the time and since I watched it alone it was "my time" so it was extra special. Even though I have many friends now in college and spend time doing other stuff I always have room just for anime, which mostly (not all since I watch some with friends) is still "my time."

Kind of, that's what it started as, I watch it mostly because I enjoy it. But it is a nice form of solitude when I need it.
And I do tend to watch a LOT of it.

I think most of us have been at this stage in one point of our life..using any forms of media--books,,tv shows, games, etc to escape from our life due to some crappy event. Probably unhealthy if this escape is used for years and years..lol. Don't think majority of us fall in this category.

Now, I watch 2-3 episodes per day on average to occupy myself when I'm exercising like a hamster on a treadmill

What do you use to watch it while exercising? I'm considering the option... running is soooo f-ing boring.

Of course! I wouldn't wish my life on my worst enemy. It would be a punishment worse than death and probably a violation of the Geneva Conventions. Watching anime numbs the pain of my real life by allowing me to experience new and exciting things vicariously through the characters portrayed.

I don't think that it's limited to just anime though. I think all forms of entertainment serve this same purpose.

I guess I can say yes to this one. Anime, just like my art, is something I use to just be by myself when everything else is not going pretty well. Not that I'm trying to run away from reality, but more like I just need a little break before going back.

I'd say yes, but it's really to escape a lot of close minded people around me. I was always busy trying to get a hobby that a lot of my friends were into. That didn't work out. So i just watched some anime and i loved it, probably will until the day i die :D.

yeah i didnt do much with my childhood so video games and anime where there for me. but once i got older about jr high i started getting alot of friends but i still play alot of videogames and anime
Posted 9/3/12
No ^^ !

I love going out side and play with my friends

Anime is something that's unreal and impossible to become real

so mostly to me it's what i CANT do and I love watching supernatural animes

even though you can have supernatural movies and shows with the technology we have now = =

I use to, but then I became addicted to it. I don't watch it much anymore, but I still do watch it every once in a while (like naruto). I think too much of anything is a bad thing.

Anime is a nice escape sometimes when the world is full of frustrations. I look at it being no different than TV viewers really. I'm sure they watch TV to be entertained but to also escape the reality of things. Though the irony of that is watching reality TV and other people's drama. Go figure.
