Watching anime is a time where I can be alone (unless someone interrupts). But it's also a hobby to me.

No I just got into anime by accident and after some friend told me that they were watching animes too or cartoons now I enjoy discussing about anime.

I watch anime normally when I am bored. If I start watching I have to finish the whole season, then I do other stuff xD

Is there anything we do not to escape life to some extent or another? But yeah, maybe a little. Mostly its the fact I love stories. Anime is an animated story. I have to finish them all.

I guess so. Real life is real life. All hobbies like this feel like an escape from real life at least a bit. Whether it is movies, games, books, or anime. It keeps me refreshed when I have to do actual every day things. Helps clear the mind of every day drab. Life is too boring other wise. XD

I don't see as escapism, to be honest. It's just watching a series.
I get immersed in games and anime, but, I don't feel any sort of overcompensation for my real life. It's part of my real life. Hell, I played WoW for 7 years, but I never considered it as an 'escape' where i'm 'truly happy and away from the harsh world'.

A honest yes. Sometimes lifes too harsh and watching anime can put my mind off things as well as enjoying the atmosphere around it.
