I was wondering if Anime had quite literally saved your life; whether it be giving you an escape from the confines of your life or to give you a feeling of friendship. In my case Anime gave me a place to go when the nightmares of going to school only to be bullied got the best of me. It was like a home away from home. Without it I probably would not have been able to hold out for the friends that I did not know where out there, but do now.

I've known a lot of people use it from bullying as a escape, Took me a while to understand it but it's actually kinda beautiful.

Whenever i have relation problems i usually just turn to anime to cheer me up, been about a month so far and it's been better than i imagined

Hmm. This is an interesting question. Personally, I just watch it when I am angry at someone, so I use it to calm down. I can safely say that I am a better person because of it

Not directly. You have the Clock Crew to thank for that back in 2007 and Touhou back in 2010 - then Touhou again in 2014. I think that without anime, I'd never have discovered Touhou. The suicidal thoughts went through me until I discovered Touhou which made me wish Yukari would take me to Gensokyo instead of wishing that I'd wake up dead - and I still wish to go to Gensokyo.

I once went to a forest to camp, it was a really pleasant experience being with nature once in a while, however I bought my phone with me as well. On the 3rd day of camping, a savagely fierce tiger appeared not showing any mercy. I frantically ran and ran and ran, distraught with fear, incognizant that the tiger hath no longer in pursuit of me. I was vigilant of my own steps, cautious of the tiger concealing itself preparing to devour me. Being circumspect of the surroundings, I have encountered the tiger once again... contently looking at my phone... watching One Piece. I guess it saved me from being the tiger's lunch


On a serious note, nope I have not experienced anime saving my ass before

No. But if it does that for you, kudos. Everybody needs something to connect to. Whether it's religion (I myself am Christian), or music, or hobbies, or a particular talent, we all need something that connects us to others and provides a way to live more broadly.

No. It's the opposite.

Tried doing the Heart Break Shot. Failed twice in an actual emergency and recreation.

Oh god. My mother and I's toxic relationship almost drove me to do many things and I was heavily bullied, and yes, anime was an escape from the turmoil of my life and still is to an extent!

I went through this exact same thing. Hell, I'll be honest. I still wish I was sent to Gensokyo :P

So, has anime saved my life? Not quite. It's still my go-to whenever my life decides to give me the finger though.

I can't say it saved my life, but it has been a distraction from various unpleasant moments in my life and relief from boredom. Then again so have video games, books, and tv etc.

Back in high school, I was suffering from depression. Then I found anime that I liked, which led to my introduction to the Vocaloid fandom. Soon, I was able to make friends that shared the same interests that helped me get out of my depression and start moving forward. Anime is still a big player in my life; it inspired me to create games for a living, a goal I continue to reach for to this day.

Well no my life but my relation with my younger sister. I use to fight a lot with my sister and could get really intense over nothing. Although Is no the only reason I decide to move to another country. Surrounded by assholes and super religius family I really need to get away fast. I Spend 2 or 3 years with not seen my sister. But then I saw Oreimo and realize I needed to improve my relation with my sister fast or lose hope of knowing her better. It also help when I get angry or sad, even depress.
