I watch anime for my entertainment (and for inspiration) and I don't use it to escape reality, I work on my manga instead for that (also will write a backstory for a character of mine otherwise it would take about 3 days to decide on one).

Yes and no.
I watch it because I'm sorta disappointed in how life is right now and how little I've done. Given, I'm only 18, but I wish I had done some things differently. Anime sorta sucks me in and envelops me in the environment. I guess that's why I'm a huge fan of romance and slice-of-life anime. The feelings some evoke, sadness and joy, are also a reason I watch. I don't have much to make me happy and anime was the only thing to make me legitimately cry in years. I feel sort of an emotional attachment to it, as sad as it may sound.
I also watch it purely to enjoy it. It's an amazing art form. It combines many different forms of art into one masterpiece. Writing, drawing, voicing, music... All comes together to create this wonderful thing we all enjoy so much.

Yes, in a way it helps me "relieve" any problems surrounding me. When I watch anime it's like a peaceful environment where nobody can bother me. Anime also inspires me to do things I never thought of doing, and just listening/watching is... just great. I can't explain it.

I understand what you are saying, I mean, I've been having some personal problems and the only way I can enjoy my life right now is watching anime. I also watch it because I enjoy it. When I'm feeling down, I watch some anime and that makes my day. I don't know, it just depends on my mood. I'm starting college soon, so I'm using the free time I have to watch as much anime as I can.

I do all the time. It's nice to sit back, relax, and enjoy some good anime once in awhile. It helps me relax. With that being sad, Season Two of Freezing cannot get here fast enough!

Probably, to be honest i don't really like reality that much but you have to live with it sadly, so I would rather Watch an Anime, read a manga or play a video game than deal with reality, I am sure one day I might think that reality is interesting but for now it is pretty boring and too serious.

Basically I absorb myself into anime so well that for the time being I am there and it allows me to procrastinate in life like a boss. If my friend never got me into anime in grade 9 I would probably be a normal person with a job and doing other normal people stuff, but because I like anime so much and watch so much of it I've had no progression in life but I can't stop because the very thought of living in the real world displeases me.

No I watch it when I'm bored or really want to see it. with games too. if I'm upset I think about it for a bit if distraction by generally anything else doesn't help.
