If you look for any kind of media, or any product, or basically anything external to change your life, you're just a giant faggot who can't think for yourself. You already know what's wrong with you, all you need to do is stop being a bitch and start working on making it right.
>>117010502 I think there is a slight discrepancy between that perception of /a/ and what /a/ is really like. Some of us are basically normalfags who go on /a/ to say retarded shit that we'd never say in real life. I don't think half of us really believe any of the stuff we write in /a/. The other half is consisted of some rather sad human beings though.
Anime is one of the most derivative mediums there is. By saying "hurdur you're not supposed to be affected by entertainment" writes off a great deal of anime you enjoy. It's all based on something and the writers/animators were moved by previous works in order to create theirs.
>>117007720 Not sure how I feel about it, it's neither sadness or happiness, it's more indifference, I used to be into vidya a lot and I think I was happier with that, I at least got more social interaction from it, not that I've not gotten that from anime but I only discuss anime on /a/ so it's not the same, and god, I seriously don't want to go anywhere else, it has it's moment and every time I stop for a long time I find myself wanting to come back because I really liked the ride so far, maybe I'll get really burnt out like I did with games though and stop it and move on to whatever else there's to move on.
>>117007720 Funnily enough, when I started getting into anime I got in the best college in my country, I was doing well in high school and had a great circle of friends. Then I moved to college, watched even more anime, and I haven't been able to rebuild my life here. That was three years ago.
I don't think anime had a bad effect on me, nor that It was the cause of my loneliness. I just failed at accompling to ''normal'' college life and this city in general. What I have now is just a comfy studio apartment and my computer, I live alone and have no close friends. Weekly airing anime and going back home to see my family is all I really look forward these days.
>>117007720 I don't know. If I spent my leisure time doing things only to talk about them, I would be watching football, popular HBO shows, summer blockbusters, and MTV reality television. Would I be happier? Maybe. I would certainly have more friends. But I can't help but feel a little bit proud of being different. That's a shallow motivation, but it's the life I chose for myself, and I'm not just gonna say all those people whose lives were chosen for them are living better ones.
I've gotten a raging 2D complex. I can't see real woman sexually anymore, its been over a decade now. Its weird to overhear people saying how sexy this porn star or actress is, and feel nothing because she isn't a cartoon character.
>>117013117 Ah, sounds like me, I was already kinda tried of school by high school but I had friends there and that was enough to keep going, comes college time and I was like "yeah, maybe it'll work out", I tried but it's not always that easy to adapt, anime didn't help in that regard but it did serve like anesthesia for the whole situation. Ended up losing my schoolarship and dropping out for a year and got back into it 3 years ago, still regret it, the shame that I felt back then, don't recommend.

Then I moved to college, watched even more anime, and I haven't been able to rebuild my life here. That was three years ago. This is basically me, except I was in highschool when I started, which was 5 years ago, and those two first years were completely alright. I didn't really have friends but I graduated with great grades and got into the best college in my country as well. I'm now in my third year in college, I'm doing completely averagely and not caring at all and I'm pretty much lost regarding what I want from my life. Will probably have to move back to my parents' next year since I doubt I'll manage to keep my scholarship this year. >What I have now is just a comfy studio apartment and my computer Pretty much this.
Honestly, it's scary how much what you said describes my experience.
