Not me. I know the difference between fantasy and reality... >.< And nothing mental that could make me violent, so no. I just rant/have a battle of the wits if I get angry.

Despite the fact that some that read violent manga and anime are violent, it is not the manga or anime that makes one violent, it is how they were raised. But, if since they were born they were exposed to violent manga or anime they might also become like that.

Well if that was his observation I can say he's a dumb psychologist.. Naturally being violent by watching anime differs between ages of course if a child does watch a violent anime theres a possibility they would be violent. It actually depends in the matureness of learning. Children's guided by parents won't do such stupidness. Also environment could be a factor. Like for example a child watching a violent anime with also violent people around him/her theres a high chance he could be one. But if the child's environment is full of parental care the chance of being violent maybe rare.. Well anyway if that was only a theory it is still unsure, theory is still a theory unless proven.

No. It really depends on the person if he/she wants to be influenced by such fictional works.
Unless the person is mentally disabled, then that's the only time that a person would copy such.

For normal people it is just escapism, just like many other sorts of entertainment. After watching a violent anime, movie or suchlike I feel no urge at all to beat the **** out of anyone. It might make someone with a propensity to act violently do something but as they are likely to do that with any sort of stimulus it can hardly be said to be a major trigger for the action.

A bit like if I see a good cookery program, I might go into the kitchen and cook something interesting. The program hasn't made me into an adventurous cook because I am one already. More than likely I would have gone and done it anyway a bit later on in the day but it might have subconsciously accelerated the process.

it's not the manga or anime, its the political environment that the readers are from.

Japan is the SOURCE of all the violent manga and anime, games included yet violence related crime is fathoms LOWER than in the US. it would take japan decades to match the number of violence related crimes the US will have in months.

Also, japan more or less is a harmonious country since they are like a nation state. Countries in he other hand like the US is a melting pot of cultures, coupled with a "freedom is the right to do anything you want attitude" and pro-gun laws make people very insecure and tend to have the them-and-us mentalities hence the tendency to violence. The downside to japan is the sexist tradition that still persists. Men > Women

Singapore is also a similar to the US (a melting pot of cultures) but singapore instills discipline with an iron hand (i remember an american minor being caned 6 times, causing severe shock and permanent scarring for spray painting cars and vandalism) if it were the US, he can gt away with just community service and probation!!!, firearm possession is illegal.

THe government also encourages people of diferent cultures to LIVE together. An example of this is singapore's national service. All males, regardless of race, ethnicity, rich or poor) they are forced to live in barracks and go throught bootcamp for 3 years (correct me if I;m wrong). This creates harmony and understanding among the citizens and no them-and -us attitude gets nurtured. Hence the lack of violence in singapore.
