>characters are happy
>you feel happy too
>remember reality mid-smile
>train of thought lost
This happen to anyone? Is there a way to stop it?
Happens all the time, especially towards the end of animes or arcs. Worst is when something in the anime makes you remember some shit you did irl.
>watching high school slice of life
>characters are having fun and new experiences every day
>get to explore the city, meet eccentric personalities
>friendships deepen as all the girls get to know each other
>feel a warmth in my heart knowing that this is just the beginning of their adult life and they have the world in front of them
>feel cozy seeing that level of friendship and seeing how embraced the MC is
>slowly realize the truth
>I have no friends because I have a shitty personality
>remember that I'm almost 30 with nothing to show for it
>realize I never went on adventures or developed deep friendships and that I've wasted my life
Doesn't sound too bad, my mind usually just floods with all sorts of unrelated thoughts and feelings out of nowhere when I'm watching stuff.
All you have to do is not think about it. Anime is merely a stepping stone to that path, although if you're tripping now then I reccomend suicide.
But life is wonderful, anon, you need to go out and have some fun with friends, get drunk and laugh with them, dance a little, or go to the gym to take off all that frustration that you have inside. Swimming is good too, I recommended it. You can be happy, anon !
except when you're sick in your bed, bored and tired as fuck like me. I'm suffering...
>tfw someone replies to me and sends not only text, but positive emotions
Made my day, get well soon, anon.
To be perfectly honest with you, I almost don't watch anime anymore. It's bored me. I only took what others people recommend me to watch in here and nothing more. This year I only watched OPM (Yeah, I know, but I really like it. The fanbase is pretty shitty though), Ashita no Joe (I don't really like anime about sport but this one was awesome. Some anon recommend me the manga, I'm going to read it later), and I rewatched Yu Yu Hakusho and Cardcaptor Sakura (two favorites of my childhood)
Thank you, anon. You're cute~
>Every visual novel end when the MC and girl are hand in hand or kissing and then fades to sepia and cursive font "END"
Nah, you're normal. I used to do the same when I was tiny. That's just another way to enjoy a story, its the same with a book. You need to understand and live what the characters are living to have a better point of view of what's happening. I don't do that anymore, I prefer to analyse and pay attention to the details, but it's nothing wrong with self insertion, just never forget who you really are. A person that only lives in a fantasy is not healthy.
I don't really like yuri. That's gay. I don't have anything against homosexuality, but I find strange to see that kind of things on my own. Sorry, I bet it's very funny and cute, but it's not for me.
Okay, I'm leaving this thread. Bye guys, take care.
It hit me especially hard when I watched the Tamako Market movie. Me crying at the end first was because of relief but then I started crying because I know that I will never have such a great relationship.
