Just a quick and rather interesting question. I'm trying to become a light novel author and I've been trying to watch the Pet Girl of Sakurasou but I can only watch about one or two episodes before stopping to work on writing, only to realize I don't have a light novel for reference. I started watching the anime back when it was still airing in winter of last year as well. That anime really makes me think "What do I want to do for my future?" and being a freshmen in high school I have a lot of time to decide.

Bakuman.

Makes me sad every time I watch it.

I use to write all the time and wanted to be a novelist. This anime reminds me of that dream and hurts.

I have things in my life that prevent that dream from coming true.

So this anime makes me think of the future I wanted and the future I will have.

Great anime, still hurts to watch.

Steins:Gate

I haven't finished it just yet to be honest. However, each time I look at Itaru
makes me getting back to thinking of video game design. He may be skilled on computer programming,
but for me, I prefer myself to try out video game design.

Another anime that makes me think of the future is Pet Girl Of Sakurasou.

Haven't got a chance to finish it as well, but It makes me think far to the future on how much I would
Improve on drawing. So far I'm making progress of my sketching skills.

It's a personal experience but mine would be Hunter x Hunter (2011). It gave me an epiphany, which I'm currently pursuing with great resolve right now

Not so much recently, but it did when I was in high school.

You know how in all those high school anime there's always that time when the seniors start studying for their entrance exams? Or when the characters graduate? I watched series like those all throughout high school, so needless to say, I constantly had the worry of "What the heck am i going to do with my life" shoved in my face. Especially in my senior year - I felt like I was a slacker character in some high school anime, and it made me feel really worried about my future. {Edit - just to list a few examples, stuff like Lucky Star, Azumanga Daioh, heck, even Code Geass threw stuff like that in there.}

Luckily, everything worked out after I graduated, so anime hasn't made me think of my future too often since then. Though I suppose stuff like Usagi Drop and Croisee in a Foreign Labyrinth make me think of what it would be like to be a father someday.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya made me feel like a small blip in a massive world. As a result, I gave up many of my aspirations and chose to simply grind money and not hold much significance to most things in life.

Through this, I have realized that the world is simply a massive Skinner Box with a large number of levers and a statistical random number game applied to the success of pressing such levers.

I agree with you on this 100%, Bakuman really brought a lot of things into perspective when I first watched it

Have you read the Sakurasou Light novels?
The light novels have more themes to absorb and more possibilities for engrossment. It'll help if you wish to become more in-depth in your research and pursuit for a reference.

But hey, what do I know; I'm just your average tsundere otaku.

I have not. I've tried reading light novels, like SAO, online but I prefer the physical copy. Problem is I don't think the light novels have been licensed, I could be wrong though.

Psycho-Pass: Makes me think of how the government can be in the future, because what happens in this anime could happen in real life.

Texhnolyze: Makes me think of the future of humanity, what will become of us, we will probably, eventually, disappear.

Angel Beats: It made me think of my life.

Angel Beats made me volunteer as an organ donor when I die. Texhnolyze made me devoid of emotion. Psycho-Pass made me want those "press a button" wardrobes. Though, a future with the Sibyl System would be shit.
