Yep! I guess thats the real reason why I love watching anime. Live into other characters and their life instead of thinking of my own life. Especially when I'm tired of everything around me! Then anime is a real break from everything.

Watch it mostly for entertainment purposes, but there are also times when I watch anime so I can cheer up - yes, I'm referring to those corny encouraging lines most main characters from Shounen series have.

Right now though, I watch it because I love it.

I watch anime because it's entertaining. I have noticed that after I finish an anime based on fantasy (Ex, (Fate/Zero) as opposed to an anime based on reality (Clannad), I begin to grow tired of real life. Fantasy anime makes me wish life was more magical.

It's more of a boredom killer for me. I try my best to never be bored, since I think bad thoughts when I am bored. I try to occupy myself constantly. Sometimes, I will watch anime simply to occupy myself. I rarely take time out of my schedule to watch stuff on TV or online anymore.

Well I got into it when I was a kid, unknowingly though as my ignorance knew no bounds haha, because of my lack of a social life, confidence and sort of outlet for all these thoughts and emotions I had as a kid. But then in jr high through high school I've come to become aware of my fascination of english literature. That love grew to me voyaging into other cultures' literature. The art of telling stories and communing with so many people of different backgrounds and still being able to affect their emotions or entertain so vividly just fascinated me. Then my junior year in high school I saw my sister watching Katekyo (however it's spelt) Hitman Reborn, To Love Ru and Rosario Vampire. And my reinterest in the works of anime and manga were sparked again. So I don't really use it to escape reality in such depressing matters as one would, now at least, and watch it simply out of enjoyment for it.

Absolutely. When I was a kid, I didn't have any friends and I had a pretty troubled home life. Anime, video games and drawing were my only escape from everything that was going on. Although life has gotten a lot better, I think I still use those things as a way to escape into a fantasy world. I'm always happiest when I'm watching a good show, getting sucked into a video game, or creating something beautiful.

I started watching anime for fun when i was little, and i can't say it hasn't influenced my life in some ways but i have never once used it to get away from life, unless you can blame it on my procrastination problems. but i do use it as a way to relieve stress sometimes. Anyways i watch anime purely for fun, i feel like if i use it just to get away from life it would take all of the fun out of it and i would probably become anti-social.

Where do I begin?

I watch it for many of the same reasons others do. I watch it to have a good time. I watch it to enhance my life. I watch it because I appreciate much of the artwork. I watch it for the compelling stories. I watch it for the overall design work and concepts. I watch it so as I might share it with others. I watch it, no, experience it for the work of genius and hardship it represents.

I don't merely watch it to escape from life. That is a wasteful practice I will not condone.

In the past, yes.

I used to escape my boring daily life.

Now, it's just a hobby.

I watched a lot of anime as a kid. But since I have classes, I rarely watch any unless its really, REALLY good.

Not as an escape, but it's a part of my daily/weekly routine. If I weren't home-bound, I'd have less time for all the anime and games I spend my time with now, and that would be fine, when it happens. I should note that I don't have the option to get out and meet people, due to health issues and family obligations, but it will be an option in due time. But I work from home, and there's almost always anime on when I work, unless I'm relaxing with a game.

It works out nicely enough. I get to indulge in my hobbies, I can do my socializing online, and continue my work at my own pace.
