Does anyone else think that anime characters get unrealistic sick a lot? I guess unrealistic isn't the best word.. but.. yeah..

There are lot of characters that get really sick and seem like they are about to die, but a cold wash rag on their heads seems to cure them. lol

Yes. I see it happen sometimes.
In the realm of anime, the word "impossible" doesn't always exist.

It's a cartoon thing.
Kinda like when someone gets run over by a car and all they get is some head bandages and then they're fine.

I see it happen quite often especially in Slice of Life-esque Animes.


I usually don't mind the being sick part, cause usually we all will be sick at one time or another, what bugs me though is how in Anime a lot of times I will see that someone is in the rain for not even that long and then will have a cold the next day. Bugs me I guess cause that would never happen to me I guess.


If this is completely off base from the question then I must have misunderstood the question itself. Only other thing I can possibly think of is characters with like life-threatening illnesses, but those usually don't get better with just a wet cloth on the forehead.

It works as a way to further the romance between characters. It's like a flag in visual novels. Although, some aren't so bad. Like Shuffle! Kaede gets sick, but it wasn't because of rain or anything like that. She was overworking herself. Admittedly, she does get better after a day...but getting sick from overworking is a lot more plausible than getting sick from standing in the rain for a few minutes.

Anime characters have a super high rate of getting sick if they get caught in the rain I've noticed. I guess the mentality is, "You can get sick from just being wet and cold!"
