>>110866343

This. Any story (or just about anything really), can make you think. It's just if you're willing to pause/stop etc and think it through yourself. Do many anime sit down lay it all out and the go text book mode and 'teach' things, no it's entertainment after all. But situations and events can still have the critical effect of having the viewer question things.

Obviously it's probably not a good 'role model' source etc.

I mean, no story is going to quite teach you as much as a real-life experience, but it's definitely introduced me to concepts I've never really given much thought to. Monster was probably the anime that did the most for me in that regard since we talk about when it is and isn't right to take a life, but not so much when it is and isn't right to save one.

The favorite thing I've learned is probably from Eva: how there isn't a single "you", but rather, every existing description or definition of who/what you are is different and none are necessarily correct - that you have a different perception of yourself than your best friend, father, lover, etc has of you and that none of these perceptions are necessarily correct. There are hundreds, even thousands (depending on your popularity) of different versions of 'you' and you will never fully grasp or understand a single version, even your own.

It also taught me that Yuri is essentially the quickest path to nirvana.

Ping Pong kind of killed any depression I had for not having much of a chance to take what I love to a extravagant, or even professional level. Not that I wouldn't still try, it's just a lot more liberating from that feeling that you've failed unless you become a pinnacle of fame and success.

Pic related also made me feel like an arrogant child, and I've found myself keeping myself in check of things like naivety and arrogance after this. I mean, Kaiki is a shit role model, but despite all the shounen you've watched it is important to learn to realize when you truly can't do anything about something and that sometimes the seemingly most cynical view of something is in fact, the most optimal one for your greater interests. Monogatari also taught me to embrace lolis, so there's that, too.

I'm sure there's plenty more.
