Do you guys think anime is dangerous? There's so much wish fulfillment and lots of qt animu girls and everything is so great.
Is it a bad idea to get sucked into the world of anime and fantasy, or is it possible to watch some of this shit and still be normal? I'm talking about the slice of life/harem/onii-chan my hips etc stuff.
I've masturbated to hentai for a while, but only recently sort of wanted to watch actual anime. Should I avoid it and try to be more of a normie, or give in and watch some sexy animu girls be cute and fug their onii-chans?
I dont watch anime and I get a similar feeling as to not watching porn, I am really glad I dont because I can see guys that do get their heads filled with unrealistic bs and would rather just escape into that world than be in reality
had a positive effect on me somehow
>be total loser
>get into anime and become a shut in for about 2 years
>finally start interacting with people I used to know before all of this
>"wow anon you've changed a lot, you look a lot more happy and healthy and etc"
not sure how it worked like this but it did and that's nice
I am an autistic neet virgin but I'd rather do something vaguely productive like practice drawing or walk my dogs, anime is just too obviously an eternal childhood escapist fantasy that'll keep you immature and I find it cringy
It's not dangerous if you realize that everything is just illusion. I personally watch anime for strong emotions, i like to see hate, anger, depression, happiness or love but i dont fall into waifu or moe delusion.
I'm addictes to porn, trying to get off it now, lots of cravings to just fap one more time. In comparison, I'm a weeb but I only watch one or two anime a year to completion. It's not addictive any more than video games are. The only people who get addicted to this shit are autists. Whereas porn is something even chads can get addicted to.
I watch anime and while I'm kind of a loser I at least have gotten gfs from anime cons who also like it and love the wish fulfillment. They have literally called me oniichan and it is glorious.
The thing is you have to be able to tell reality from fiction. You can try to make fiction come to life but if you expect everybody and everything to conform to your fantasies you're in for a rough time.
I think the otaku life has a self-selecting membership, and not just anyone is going to fall into it by watching anime. There's a lot of people who've watched hundreds of anime for years and all they can talk about is how much they hate otaku and moe and harem anime.
>give in and watch some sexy animu girls be cute and fug their onii-chans?
You're not going to find this outside of hentai.
/r9k/ is an off-topic board, newfag.
>anime is just too obviously an eternal childhood escapist fantasy
Children don't romantically fantasize about anime characters, and so-called moe anime is not aimed at or watched by them.
4chan is a anime website dummy
Anime is okay as long as you realize it's just entertainment and not a reflection of the real world. Once you get to the point of eschewing attraction to real women or spending time that you should be doing other things watching anime, it has become unhealthy escapism.
You should expand your horizons. There's moe to be found outside the usual SoL shows.
Otaku actually know better than anyone that anime isn't reality.
I beg to different, there are some anime out there that actually do have some deep philosophical life shit in them. Yeah there's the infestation of the panty up shot highschool vampire/monster/ demi god shit but anime like akira, the rorouni kenshin movie(even the series) and mushishi + welcome to the NHK, a lot of it has some deep shit in it that can keep you going in life lol
It's really different from anything you'll see in Western animation. Western animation doesn't have the detail and realism (or sense of reality) to make people fall in love with characters.
As with most things excess consumption can become unhealthy.I some anime have had an impact on my persona and the way I see things, for better or worse I don't know.
Just finished Ebichu Minds the House, not sure what to see next, anyone got anything good to recommend? No particular preferences but rather something that isn't too much romance.
Moe anime, and cuteposters are cancer.
If you want to watch anime, watch some Kaiji or NHK, but not theses shit for escapism.
It makes you gay in the long run.
I'm not even shitting or rusing you robots, it's dangerous. I was once a normie underage college student that thought this shit was for nerds. Then I started google searching smug reaction images to find the source
then I started fapping to doujins of the said source
then I started fapping to feminine traps then I started fapping to dicks Now I have a robot bf since last august, we meet every other month for lewd as we live pretty far
You can say that, but it doesn't do anything to change the fact that people are abandoning real women in favor of anime characters.
>Moe anime, and cuteposters are cancer.
Says who? Some Western casual who thinks the world revolves around him?
>If you want to watch anime, watch some Kaiji or NHK, but not theses shit for escapism.
If you want to be plugged in 24/7 to the burning political and social issues of the day, why don't you just read Twitter and Reddit? If you waste your time watching any anime you might miss the latest thing Trump said.
>It makes you gay in the long run.
Maybe you should get a dictionary and double check the meaning of that word.
>Maybe you should get a dictionary and double check the meaning of that word.
Also I didn't say "anime" was bad; but the moe/harem/SoL ARE shit, it's escapism for sad fucks.
>You can say that, but it doesn't do anything to change the fact that people are abandoning real women in favor of anime characters.
Who ? Some Omega losers on /r9k/
>sample size of one person
>it's escapism for sad fucks.
Every minute you spend watching any anime or reading 4chan is a minute you could be spending reading the news and political opinions instead (which are mostly worthless drivel). You don't want to escape reality, do you?
Japanese otaku, and non-Japanese otaku. It has nothing to do with /r9k/.
"Yeah, I like Slice of life and I fap to feminine dicks, it's called having taste"
Kill yourself faggot
>that guy who refuses to admit SoL has some good shows
The original meaning of the word "Otaku" is something similar to "loser" so the point still stands.
Also "reality" doesn't revolve about the puppet show that are USA's politics. It's also another form of distraction.
Try wrapping your mind around the idea that anime is nothing like Western animation.
Otaku literally means "your house" or "your household," and is a polite way of addressing another person. In the 80s the term started being used to refer to hardcore fans of anime, manga, games, scifi and whatever else.
>Also "reality" doesn't revolve about the puppet show that are USA's politics. It's also another form of distraction.
Then what is reality?
The world doesn't revolve around you. You don't decide what is and isn't cancerous in anime. If you don't like it then go watch something else.
Which has nothing to do with what I said.
Forgot the picture
Well I have watched hundreds of anime and so on, and his experiences don't correspond to mine. Nor do I think they are representative of what happens to otaku (and I don't think this guy even is an otaku).
As someone whose only sexual activity in the past seven years is masturbating exclusively to anime, I don't think it's a big problem. /r9k/ would probably call me a normie, I hold down a job, have a couple friends and a decent relationship with my family. It's just my sexuality that's weird, and I don't consider that a loss because I fucking sucked at romance anyway.
He didn't mention otaku anywhere, and he also sounds like he just passively consumes things with minimal brain activity involved, which doesn't describe otaku. Especially in Japan.
It's not uncommon for people to spend many years watching hundreds of anime yet not become otaku. The crew of ANN and AniDB mostly look down on otaku, and they run anime database sites.
Oh please, video games are just as inane and escapist. The only difference between Call of Duty and Kodomo no Jikan is one is socially accepted entertainment, the other is not.
You're "trapped" in this bullshit no matter what you enjoy. And if you browse /r9k/ you're beyond saving anyway. So everybody just enjoy what floats your boat, okay? Okay!
I've recently got into anime. I have already bought dakikamuras (pillow waifus), banners, curtains, dolls and so on. Its really fun.
