Yes, but not to relieve depression or anything. Anime time is relax time.

Pretty much.

I enjoy anime most when I can live vicariously through it... and hopefully inspire me to do something about my life.

Oh man, a thread about escapism in an anime forum; NOBODY ANYWHERE saw that one coming!

...I actually have nothing useful to add to this discussion, except to say that yes, there are lots of ways to distract yourself from reality.

I tend to feelthe same way because I also had depression problems as a child. It was difficult so I used sports (lets face it, every guy who wasn't cool and picked on, in his early teens, tried every sport to impress the girls), art, music (thanks eminem) and anime to escape. I don't do it much anymore but there are times that you just end up feeling down and a nice, emotional anime like clannad just helps.

Totally. I've had a .... not so pleasant experience family wise ever since I was little, so computers and TVs were my only way of escaping that depression which is reality. I don't think it's a bad thing, and it's not like anime and games and stuff CONTROLS me, I just kind of need it now because I've grown up with it.

It's a nice way to relieve stress and find the good things in life :3

Yes, I try to watch upbeat anime. like some shonen anime to help the my mood.
They are so determined and unwavering it gives me a good role model.
