i hav to say yes too
6 yrs ago my dad died and at the same time i was bullied at school and at home by my older bro
so for atleast 2 yrs all i did was watch anime and play games and slowly i havnt relied on it as much but it still became a part of my life
and i dont regret it
tho once in a while i wonder if things could hav been different
but what was done is done and i like my life now

Life is so scary, it's like a jaguar staring at me in the middle of the jungle.

I don't watch anime to escape anything. I watch anime because its vastly more interesting then the reality we live in.

Anime is my escape from the lack of brain power displayed by my peers. Seriously, talking about how much chips costs at an amusement park for an hour? I could have half a conversation about time theories or humans instead. Humans are interesting to talk about...

I usually watch anime to escape from my problems, or just get a break from reality.

I've been escaping from my life since i got a PS2 and the first kingdom Hearts back in 4th grade. My love of video games has continued to this day. My entire time in middle school and high school was pretty much playing games, watching anime and stuff and reading books. I think I might have been depressed, or perhaps just sick of how boring life was compared to the characters in books, shows and games. I still don't rightly know. Life is life, there ain't nothing else you can say to describe it. It doesn't have any reason, there ain't no answer to the "whys" in life. That guy who shot up the movie theater in Colorado, or was it Massachusetts? anyway, it didn't really matter why he did it, there was honestly no reason for it, it just happened. This world is filled with bullshit and this life that we cling to can end at any moment, whether we've planned for our deaths or it just happens because your body randomly goes into cardiac arrest and despite getting CPR you still stay dead. Why did the young infant suffer from SIDS? There's no answer, it just happens. Explain it with science and medicine if you like, but is that truly the answer you're looking for? Anyway, our only goal is to keep ourselves happy until we expire and if trying to run from this random bullshit life for the fantasies of knights and dragons or giant robots and space marines makes you happy then do it.

No, sleep and eating was what I used to escape... really, really bad combo. Wish I did escape through anime or video games because when I do find a game I love, I can sit there and play the whole day without even thinking of food.


This is me and Skyrim.

i watch it because imho it is the most interesting thing out there to watch, and its gorgeous~

i watch other stuff too like Dexter, Boardwalk empire, Curb your enthusiasm, etc.., BUT anime trumps all of em in the end~

and gaming is just good fun, great graphics this gen and its great interactive entertainment~

Nah. I grew up with it, so its hard to detach myself from it. I happen to enjoy my life, at the moment, despite the fact of stress.

no, I wouldn't say I use it as an escape. I would however say I use it to procrastinate on my homework though. There really is no escape from my problems so I just kinda ignore 'em as best as I can.

pretty much, yeah
