Just wondering, personally it's never done much for me other than provide entertainment but i'd like to hear some stories. :)

Its funny you mention this about 6 months ago I had zero desire to watch anime but a friend of mine insisted I check out the anime wolfs rain. After being blown away by how awesome it was I gorged myself on the medium. Now for reasons I don't fully understand I am returning to University after a two year break I quit my horrible manufacturing job and stopped drinking alcohol. I am now taking Japanese lessons as well. For some reason watching anime gave me a desire to turn my life around the characters inspired me and touched my heart.

I was watching Love Live and there was the one episode where Honoka and Hanayo were trying to exercise and lose weight. I really enjoyed that episode and it inspired me to push myself towards losing weight. Currently after two and a half months of exercising pretty much every day and trying to eat less I've lost 25 lbs. Not what I expected to push me, but it has worked out so far.

Watching Encouragement of Climb has compelled me to do more hiking and other outdoor activities in nature. Well, that's something that I'll eventually get to doing since for the time being I have so much I need to sort through in my life before thing about making these outdoor excursions. But it got me quite interested in doing more of these nature walks and other stuff. I used to do a lot of these outdoor activities up until I graduated from college and ever since then I have just been quite busy being occupied with other things to even think about doing these outdoor stuff. But it just reminded me the amazing time I once had hiking and camping.

Anime has shown me that just because your a girl doesn't mean your strong. Anime has taught me how to fight for myself and be strong

I was happy and gaming one day when a guild member of the guild i was running gave me a green dragon mount as a present and told me about this amazing anime called sword art online. i watched one episode and i was hooked lol I ended up finishing the 25 episode series in 2 days. Let's just say many thoughts hit me and challenged me about the way I was living my life.. It's made me like playing solo in video games now and only joining a guild when solo is no longer possible.

"Kenichi mightiest disciple"got me into working out. I used to run 6 miles every morning thinking I was going to become some crazy street fighter.

"Initial d" got into LOVING cars and every thing about them

And "Full metal panic" made me want to join the U.S. Navy (never went through with it, I really regret that)

Long story short, Hunter x Hunter managed to change my life significantly. I went from a frivolous Ross employee to an aspiring Harvard student because of it.

For one, I know I'm not an alien just because I like to eat "strange" things, i.e. omurice, takoyaki, seaweed, onigiri, etc. Also it has taught me to just enjoy myself, and the people that love me for it are the ones worth keeping around. And to not settle for anything less than adventure.
