Why are anime fans so depressed?
Posted 6/19/15
Speaking from personal experience, the number of anime fans who are mightily depressed seem to be higher than those not into anime.

But yes depression is a very widespread thing, and it's not a group by group basis at all. Anyone can have it. Anyone.

But why are there so many depressed (as in suffering from depression, not literally just sad) anime fans?

We're all lonely and throw ourselves into worlds where love blossoms even for weird and awkward people. Fight the good fight my kouhai, believe in senpai who believes in you!

I guess I'm guilty of this. I wouldn't call myself "clinically depressed", but I suppose there's some depression there. I dunno, I like anime as a release. It's fun to watch and makes me feel better for a while. I've always been socially awkward, like a lot of anime characters are, so I can relate to that.

Oh, I have major depression, but half the time I try and be extremely happy. I don't like saying I try to be happy, because I'm always feeling like I am enjoying things, having fun with the people I normally do, watching anime, cosplaying, or art in general. I feel happy. I also have anxiety, I guess that and thinking deeply about other things that are unpleasant in my life, it triggers my depression, and it just gets bad. It's weird. I have major depression, but I rarely get depressed..and if I do, it's real bad?
I' ve had horrible experiences in the past, butttt I learned not to give a crap anymore so I'm pretty happy, and out-going. ;U
I feel like if it wouldn't matter if I were an anime fan, it would still be the same outcome.

Anime helps with my depression, actually, it's a kind of escapism. My depression is inherent, nothing's ever going to "cure" it, even meds can't entirely rid me of it.
