Naw, if I get bored and have nothing to do I watch anime because I like it. Just something to quench my boredom.

Just entertainment for me. I never really think of escaping from real life, I just do stuff that I think is fun.

Nothing wrong with watching anime to distract yourself from problems (sometimes thinking too much about things that you can't change in short term just hurts yourself). In my case I have to say, no. I watch anime because I like it and I love Japanese culture. I'm happy with my life, I don't want to escape from it.

Like anything else, it's alright to submerse yourself for a little bit, but be careful to come back. You see it frequently in MMORPG's (secondhand experience) and it taking over people's lives. All of my hobbies involve 'escaping' in one form or another, but not necessarily because life is horrible at the moment.

Uhhhhh...Hmmmm..

Well, I guess You could say so if the way this Thread was written is that the Anime is more like a "cover-up" for some of the LESS positive things that may or may not be going on in Your Life. But if I was to be HONEST, honest...No...I don't think so...But I can surely see how many Fans would and could Use viewing their favorite respective Anime in that particular form and fashion. But for Myself, Personally...I watch Anime because it is just about 'second-nature' these Days. YES, it makes Me happy...But I don't believe that I use/view it for the specific purpose of covering up any of the Negative in My life. Not to say that it's may not possibly be BOTH, but Anime is simply a raw form of passion and happiness...A part of that quickly evaporating metaphorical Oasis within Myself containing all of that which makes Me happy, content and gleeful.

When it comes to the form of "Self-escape" which I believe this Thread was actually focusing on, I tend to Use Medications...
...for that.
