/a/, has any anime or anime in general taught you something new in your life? For example a new view of friendship or love.
Darker than Black taught me that Glass bottles are more environmentally friendly than Plastic. I mean, it makes sense, but I never really acknowledged it.
I don't know how it'd be possible to learn a life lesson from anime unless you're severely autistic or 7.
I viewed Eva as a teenager. It modified the way I viewed interpersonal relationships, like wanting to understand people's motivations better.
Whores exist anon. You'll get to know item one on your list for a few bucks.
Maybe not teach but it was more of a reminder of the important things.
Tsukihime VN taught me that if you strongly press below your testicles semen won't come out.
Thank you, Senpai.
Anime taught me that my best days are behind me and I totally fucked up my chance of having a good school life, but then I already knew that.
It also taught me that slice-of-life depicts people as abnormally good-natured and decent.
Meruem from Hunter x Hunter taught me that I didn't understand anything and never really appreciated and cherished what truly mattered in my life. It might be corny but damn did it hit close to home.
It make me realize that democracy wasn't necesseraly the best form of gouvernment .
That and the fact that niggers make the best ninjas.
Aria was a fuck-load of inspiration and knowledge. Alicia is my role model. She is everything I want to be and more. The epitome of perfection.
It taught me the true beauty of armpits.
Other than a number of new fetishes.
I'd say that to be able to achieve something, you have to work hard to get said goal, but that's kinda common sense though, anime just helped nail it down in my head.
I'm currently trying to get my drawing skills better, and I'd say it improved
Be be wary of getting NTRd, but no matter what you do, you'll always be NTRd. It's pretty much ruined my chance of ever having a healthy relationship with another person. T-thanks.
I'm assuming you've watched Sora no Manimani then?
I don't think I properly understood other people's emotions until watching toradora. It's not so much the content but the fact that everyone in the show had wants and needs and made me realize how little I understood other people.
I felt like shit after.
>implying the sigma bonds between the carbon atoms have no height, only length and width
>implying the nucleus of a carbon atom is a 2 dimensional object
>Implying the electron isn't perfectly spherical
Get the fuck out.
Anime taught me that girls can't love other girls.
Think of a book that delivers a life lesson. What if someone made an anime adaptation of said book that followed it exactly? Wouldn't it teach the same lesson?
So obviously it isn't logistically impossible.
It taught me to keep going on.
This is going to sound nerdy as fuck, but when I was in highschool I was in the track team. Had to run the 2 mile, and the theme song from TTGL motivated me, ended up with a personal record
Doesn't sound nerdy to me, anon.
I rewatch the entire series whenever I'm deeply depressed. I've personally grown to love this version http://youtu.be/-dWZcF58EgA
I'm not sure if 'taught' is the right word, but I lost my fetish for incest after watching this. Maybe it was when Haru was crying when he found his sister masturbating to him.
>tried to chase unreachable girl, 9/10
>all in vain
>believe in me who believes in you
>who the hell do you think i am
>hype boost and man up, never giving up for the next months
>success at everything and get the girl
TTGL is my fucking law
Reading the Fate/stay night VN made me work out and run harder.
The details that was written about how much pain Shirou endures made every pain I've felt feel like nothing in comparison.
And I keep imagining
"Can you keep up with me?"whenever I run.
Shit works like a charm.
It taught me that I should've played baseball in high school, and that I shouldn't have stopped boxing. It taught me that /a/ is my best friend. It taught me that friendship between men is truly the best thing in the world.
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.
Hikari deserved better. Too bad for him he has shit taste.
In stories than make me think, I sometimes wonder what the author is thinking, if he's self-inserting, if he has an agenda, what political beliefs he has, etc. I've noticed that the author's works, especially serious ones, often provide insight into their lives and way of thinking.
Anime taught me I'm not spending enough money
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.
