ITT: Movies and shows that aren't pure entertainment value and may have an affect on your outlook on life or otherwise change your thoughts or behaviors
Thanks. Yeah, usually whenever says something is 2deep or pretentious it doesn't turn out that way. I think plenty of people would rather dismiss something as pretentious babble rather than put some effort into thinking about it.
Already seen it, great show though. It was at a great time for me too, because it was right after my one and only long-term girlfriend dumped me for another guy. So I was really depressed and wanted to go full-NEET and it propped me up a bit and made me scared of falling too deep into that lifestyle. I've heard the manga and novel are even darker, though -- with drugs and stuff. Have you read those?
That fucking movie. Blog time.
I do a lot of roleplay, and I met someone pretty special on an RP site years ago. She and I had our OC's, hit it off well and enjoyed writing together. I learned she had cancer, and we became attached and friendly out of character. I absolutely loved the way she wrote, too. It inspired me and I'm still proud of all the stuff we've written together in those years.
I talked to her as she struggled with all the surgeries and such. We even traded phone numbers. When her life caught up with her and she finished her surgeries and began making vast improvements on her health, completely free and happy, we grew a bit distant because of how hectic our lives were. We still texted a bit and even webcammed (she's fucking gorgeous).
One day she texts me that she watched 5cm per second and kept thinking of us. I watched it right after and thought it was fantastic and saw where this was going.
She's too busy to come online much anymore, and I haven't seen her in about two years and we've all but stopped texting eachother. Moving on is tough, dude.
That movie though, fucking excellent.
She's married now (one time she texted me saying "I wish there were two of me.", and something about wanting me as well.) In fact, we were really close while she and him were just boyfriend and girlfriend.
Plus she's in the states and I'm a Canadian. I'd like to go see her sometime but I work a pretty low paying job and can barely pay for rent, food and I'm slowly paying off my school tuition. It's not gunna happen.
I watched the tatami galaxy when I was a brand-spanking new university freshman
I am now an aspiring full-time neet
where did it all go so wrong
sorry for the anime discussion
I honestly don't know why anyone likes 5ch per second. I mean, the animation is beautiful, but that's all it has going for it. The rest of the movie is middle-school tier relationship drama "she likes him but he likes someone else" shit. How could that change your outlook on life? Didn't you experience that crap first hand in middle school like everyone else?
It actually changed my life.
Not anime but I was emotionally stunted as fuck and this brought out the white knight in me as a teen. Then shows like TTGL inspired me for a short while.
Yes I was impressionable, I think it was for the better..
what are you even doing in this thread
You can enjoy it alright, I enjoy anime very much when did I say you couldnt?
And yes fapping is the best thing it has.
It has other qualities too ,but life changing definitely isnt one of them, unless you are a teen, or a manchild.
I can't say I've had my life changed by any medium, but doesn't mean I'm going to act like a cunt to everyone who has. Hell, you yourself said you had your life changed by non-anime mediums. To me, that's exactly the same thing as having your life changed by anime. If you think that they're childish then you must realize that you are just as childish as they are.
I'm glad your true intentions have been outed OP. Now please fuck off. /a/'s lack of tolerance for rec threads is easily one of the board's best factors. Keeps entry level faggots out and stops the board from being flooded with the same exact threads 24/7.
