Has an anime ever made you think?
Like about your life or your view on things.
It made me realize how boring and shit my life is watching shit tier anime for 14 hours a day every day.
Yes. Deep anime like Lain or Evangelion make me think very about my life and the universe. I spend quite a lot of time analyzing them, always searching for hidden meanings and symbolism. It often takes many rewatches but I think it's worth it and that I'm not wasting my time. For example I probably invested around 2000 hours into watching and figuring out EVA. Every single time I rewatch that series I have a different view on things, there's always something to discover. I spend quite a bit of time trying to find the meaning behind the title, why did the director choose "Neon Genesis"? Why not any other title? Figuring this out requires a lot of background research on greek mythology and christianity and I've actually come up with a solid theory. I've written it all down, it's not polished yet and still needs a little bit of work but it's around 700 pages long.
Sora no Woto, my #1, reinforced my beliefs in that hope should never be lost, under any circumstances.
But the one that influenced me the most is probably my #2, Hyougemono. It made me legitimately think about aesthetics and consider how they influence me. About tastes and how "there's no accounting for taste" is a load of bullshit and people will always argue about tastes and judge other people by them.
I'm not entirely sure if I'm answering to a bait thread but whatever
Arjuna did. No not the obvious thing. I knew about the enviroment. But humans and human interaction. One human specifically. Yoko Kanno. Why can't she make such an awesome soundtrack for every anime?
My IQ is around 300 so I don't really ''think'' anymore. I simply ''am''. There is nothing more to think about once you've reached my level, because you know all there is to know.
It's not that I know all there is to know. It's just that the anime I've watched doesn't teach anything important.
At best you could say an anime has motivated me to learn about something from another source.
Of course you don't, your IQ is only 120. Once it reaches 300 you'll simple ''be''. I'm trying to explain it to someone on your level, but maybe it isn't simple enough for you.
This anon gets it. His IQ is probably around 200 at least. Truly close to reaching enlightenment.
Kodomo no jikan
my faith in true love was restored and no longer am i in a rush to fall in love anymore, neither do i feel pressured to find someone and settle down, life is better when you don't have to worry about this kind of stuff and you can concentrate on becoming a better person, for yourself and for everyone around you.
You can become a mature and respetable person without having to live life the way everyone expects you to live and still know that love can bloom even between two people of such great differences, not only age, but also different backgrounds.
>Tldr: you can fall in love at any time in your life with anyone
This made me think that life's not so bad.
Texhnolyze was a fantastic thinking anime.
Starting out like it did it expanded into something incredibly big, certainly one of my favorites.
However, you definitely have to be able to look past the build ups/introductions in the earlier episodes and try to understand the bigger pictures, many don't want to put that effort into things but imo that's what made the show so great, everything was for a reason.

maybe /b/ has some EPIC ANIME MOMENTS threads you can haunt, you pathetic parasite.

I'd like to remind you that the most popular shows are shonenshit or edgy things like AOT and Tokyo Ghoul. Also you don't have to spend your time watching only 2deep4u stuff, sometimes a little break it's needed.
Gatchaman crowds. Yes I know it's sponsored by the government but I really liked how it tried to present some existing problems with the way mass thought works. It proposes an answer to the question it poses but still allows the viewer to think up its own alternatives.
Yeah, Eva made me think. I wouldn't talk about it on here though.
Utena made me think a lot about how I interact with people and my views on maturity
Guys just quit trying to argue with Dr. Eggman you'll never win.
My IQ is only around 225~, but last time I checked was a year ago so it's likely grown by then.
But even I can appreciate the cosmic wisdom this guy is talking about.
Man can observe amoeba, but amoeba are incapable of observing man.
