It's more to escape all the noise and tension going on in my house. I have three siblings and I prefer to be alone than in the middle of a petty squabble. My life isn't depressing enough to escape from.

I happened to get into it during probably the lowest point in my life and I think I can honestly say that it was one of the few things that brought me joy during that difficult time. Three years ago I pulled out of school for psychological and substance abuse problems.. But no matter how horrible I felt, how shitty my minimum wage job had been that previous night, etc, I felt like it was always there for me. It gave me an outlet to escape, fostered new hopes and dreams, and showed me that could still feel. Today, back in school and life I guess you could say, while it may not be as much of an escape it is still one of my favorite past times, with friends of by myself alike.

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!



Haha. Yes! Can't wait for boobs when they lose round 2. It's the perfect drinking anime.

Probably, but it's not the main reason why I have watched anime over the years.

Have you heard "I'm Eighteen" by Alice Cooper? well, that's exactly how I feel. Except for the "I like it" part. The point is, I have been feeling down lately, and I have discovered that at the same time I am watching more anime than what I had in the last couple of years. So I can say that anime is -currently- my escape.

I'm not sure how old this thread is but I came across it and decided I would give my thoughts on the subject. I am in a way escaping reality through anime. I don't want to be in a fantasy world, but I find that when I've got too much time on my hands I sink into either anxiety or depression, basically I hate when I have too much time to think i what I'm getting at. Anime has always filled the empty space in my heart and life and it has given me a lot of joy and excitement. But my reasons for enjoying anime so much is not all because of the stated reasons, I also take a passionate and extreme interest in drawing in the Japanese style. I'm not a seasoned artist by any means, but I am striving to get good enough to actually publish my own graphic novel series someday! I enjoy drawing anime tremendously and find that watching anime and reading manga just fuels up my passion and love for it!

I watch it because it makes me happy. It doesn't control me.
