It didn't. It only filled my life with unrealistic expectations.

Well, when I was a child I used to watch bubblegum crisis on SBS, it exploded my views of art styles and animation, storytelling abroad - shortly after if I remember there was evangelion on SBS, then later on there was Pokemon on tv, Dragon ball Z, Yu-gi-oh, Bey-blades etc...
the kinda mainstream-ish ones.

Then growing up I started to look into manga, purchased and had purchased for me quite a few how to draw manga books, ones on fantasy, manga heroes / villains - dragons - mecha. The sorts of stuff that gave me such a profound interest it kept me motivated to keep on drawing and doing art, even if my own artwork wasn't anywhere as good as those pictures in the books. I would say to myself one day I'll be able to draw just as good as them.

Then around high school time, I found one of the main animes I ended up finishing - Code Geass, watched S1/S2 and really liked it, used to spend the night watching around 2 to 3 episodes before bed. in between that gap and so I had collected about 13 or so Naruto graphic novels, and rurouni kenshin as well about 2 or 3 - also this korean styled one called Phantom.

Out of high school - I got a wacom tablet for christmas, that was such an excellent gift, I did so much artwork from it. I bought the box set of evangelion (7 discs) and watched the whole thing, it was incredible and gave me so much appreciation for the anime genre.

Now, I have a wacom intuos 4 pro medium tablet - and a crunchyroll sub... shame I just don't have enough internet atm / else I would be watching so much all the time!

Anime helped me keep my virginity til I got married. LOL JK JK.

On a serious note... it honestly helped distract all the chaos that was happening around me. It also made me love learning about new languages. So far I can only speak 4 languages, but I'm still learning. Some "mature" shows made me gain more perspective in life where as usually normal live shows cannot.
