>ass and tits
Because its standards for beauty agree better with me than other media. I want my shitty waste of time episodes to be cute girls doing cute things and not parading of mediocre bodies.
I don't know where this pic is from btw, so if someone feels like telling me, it would be appreciated
Escapism to my more-than-mediocre life, responsibilities, and the eventual realization that I've completely and utterly wasted what could have been an amazing life.
Boredom, scapism, good voice acting and for the loli

Pretty much this. Nipland produces not only the finest 2D, but is also the only place where you see all body types sexualized, especially petite.
Thanks man but even still, I would like to learn it I just have to find some way of maintaining motivation. The main reason is because I have a backlog of Japanese games that I want to experience cause I know they'll never reach the shelves of the West.
Because the Japanese produce a higher quantity and quality of cartoons than any other country, many of which are aimed not exclusively at children. The medium of cartoons possess wild fantastical ideas that could only be done in 3D with cringeworthy CGI. They also contain worldviews and perspectives distinctly foreign and exotic to western viewers so it's an additional step away from reality that makes it a truly enjoyable form of escapism.
And above all the Japanese have perfected the cuteness of cartoons to such an extent that scores of men for several decades have chosen these perfect 2D beings over actual 3D women in a movement not seen since the days of Byzantine iconophila.
Homura stops time while you're lying on your bed fapping to bust into your room in her diapered ass to sit on your face. Time resumes and she immediately tells you that if you don't betray your waifu by admitting right there and then that she's a whore, she'll mess herself where she is. What do you do?
Because I have chronic insomnia and can't sleep for longer than 4 hours a day most of the time and need something to do when I can't sleep but alos don't have the energy to be productive because of lack of sleep.
Have you tried sleeping pills? Also, do you find that you have obsessive compulsive tendencies when you get a lack of sleep? I'm just curious because I've been experiencing OCD for a while and am not the best sleeper.
In addition to the reasons listed above, there's something about it which makes me feel nostalgic.
I also like to talk to you people
Is fun escapism? or does escapism only applies to depressed people who watch this solely because it makes them feel good for a while?
I know that I have the capability to change, i know i have the potential to reach satisfaction, but knowing doesn't provide me with the motivation to go do it. Alas, the immediate satisfaction of fast food, video games, and anime fuels my everyday life more than any eventual result of success would.
However, at the end of the day, this lifestyle of mine never changes because I am satisfied with my friends, my family, and my current role in life. I am not a leech, yet I don't provide for others. I am not a loser, yet I am not well-known. I am normal, and I'm ok with that.
Anime serves as my escapist reality to not deal with anything, because I can just say "I'll work on it tomorrow" if I just spend any and all free/productive time on anime/vidya/manga.
I've tried a lot of things. The only thing that I have been able to take to sleep and not also build up enough tolerance that I can't sleep while using it is heroin.
Unfortunately, it feels too good to want to sleep and 'waste it'. It's also illegal and other opioids are typically not strong enough to help much.
I don't particularly exhibit obsessive compulsions but I've been diagnosed with type 1 bipolar with mixed episodes for a while now.
I thought it was purely for entertainment until I realized that I'm always touching myself when watching anime. I mostly watch moe SoLs, harems and ecchi.
Something I could recommend you as a sleep aid that doesn't build up too much tolerance is Valerian Root extract. You can usually get some at your local drug store in the supplements section.
It acts kind of like valium and can help people with nervous or anxiety disorders, especially when trying to get to sleep, it will help to stop racing thoughts and is a mild hypnotic. I use it every now and then.

That's the way to go, anon. And don't you ever dare looking back on it and say it wasn't worth it.
