At first yhea. I really liked it as a way to escape my family, which was going through some tough times, and my cruddy school life. But then I began to think about what it would be like to make this kind of stuff. To make a comic book or a manga, or hell, even an anime! The thought stayed in my brain for a long time, and it sorta molded me into who I am now. Now granted, I don't want to make a manga or an anime, but I do want to try to make my own story. One made by me and only me (and some help I find along the way). I want to make it into a comic book instead of a manga, simply because I'm not into the manga scene anymore. I find comics more fun and more of something I could get more help with since one of my family's friends owns a comic book store.

But I guess it was my escape that turned into my passion, and it was my passion that turned me into myself. (I'm getting all poetic just for you guys)

I watch it for fun now but when I first got into it, I watched it as a way to escape. I had been depressed and anime was a way for me to be happy. Not gonna go into much details with that though.
Nowadays, if I'm feeling upset or something, I just watch anime or read manga because it helps make me feel better. It takes my mind off things

Not really. I indulge in other forms such as daydreaming too.

I think almost any activity on the internet helps me control my emotions when I'm feeling rather down or perhaps because I come on here all the time, it's stabilizing an ongoing issue. The distraction really does help to keep from overthinking and overbearing negative thoughts. Anime, along with other interests, helps boost my mood so it's pretty important to me. Though I wouldn't say it's an escape from my life. I've learned more about myself on here than I ever could have without the instigation of anime leading to many other sites I current today. You can't fully escape reality. Each day, you'll still turn off that screen and look at yourself in the mirror and think what type of person you've become. I really don't enjoy all the otaku who bury themselves in their rooms in their interests because there can be a good balance between your interests and your social life. It's not easy for many, but watching anime all day isn't going to change that.

When life is getting me down it is hard for me to turn to anime most of the time. I am usually far too distracted by my own thoughts to enjoy it. So no, I simply watch anime because it is something I like to do and something I like to share with others.

No. I have better things do rather then sit around and watch anime all day. I watch anime for entertainment and I only watch the animes that are really really good and highly acclaimed.
