has manga/anime affected your life in a positive way? which one/s and how?

i'll refrain from posting first to avoid >blog

It hasn't, and it never will.

It made me more social. I was the edgy kid that hated group projects, thought that I can do everything on my own and don't need anybody else in my life. Then I learnt about the power of friendship and decided to change my ways.

No. It's the reason I'm a worthless NEET.

>affected your life in a positive way?
what the fuck does this even mean
>>
It allowed me to spend time enjoying and watching anime.
Experiences of any kind are better than sitting around or jacking off I guess.

>>138733615
for me, One Piece broke down my social inhibitions and gave me a giant raging metaphorical boner for friendship.

The longer I kept reading One piece, the more i noticed that when I'm around my group of friends my state of mind is akin to being drunk: I'm happier, giddier, and speak far more and about a wider range of topics than in other situations.

This is a group where only 1 other person shares my interest in anime and games and yet we've been arranging meetups, despite our separation due to jobs, at every opportunity we can for almost a decade now.

I legitimately fucking love my friends and wouldn't trade them for all the waifus in the world. Without One Piece, I'd likely have isolated myself and avoided nurturing these friendships.

The whole of Parasyte influenced my early childhood philosophies a lot (for the better, I think), the BLACK JACK anime that was out at the time taught me that it was cool to do awesome shit just to forget about it completely and move on to other awesome shit, and TWGOK reassured me that thinking about social situations strategically and in a completely removed way didn't necessarily make me a TOTAL freak, and that some people would think it was cool, which gave me some of the incentive I needed to get popular in high school.
How can you faggots not learn anything from these cartoons which benefit from millennia of chinese wisdom?

This. YrYr has a calming effect on me. I'm a massive hypochondriac, and whenever I have a really bad episode, I just start watching it, and I calm down immediately. It's amazing.
>>
>>138733260
Ironically it was the one you posted. When I watched Hei flip that wok like a madman near the end of season 1 I felt like I had to learn how to cook chinese food and now I actually enjoy cooking.

I almost joined an anime club once. I was hovering outside the back door every week, afraid to go in. I eventually got noticed by the vidya club that was next door, who invited me to play Melee. I still have those college friends ten years later, and I went from being an autistic mute, to someone who's half-functional. We basically poached all the good members away from that anime club.

Anyway, one of the big reasons I was even there, iirc, was Haruhi. The idea that someone would want to be friends with you BECAUSE you were a mute, BECAUSE you were a transfer student, was really pretty uplifting, and it made me want to try and find a club. Something safe and structured, but still social.

I'm really glad to hear that these kinds of messages got through to someone. I've never really understood NEET (other than moefags), given how much the medium pushes the value of bonds over literally everything else.

I don't understand how you could be a NEET when you obsess over anime unless you're into moe and moe alone, which is obviously over-idealized and only encourages relationships with cute little girls. What what?

yeah. it's easily one of the best things to ever happen to me.

it affected my actions as well. As I progressed in One Piece, I started to desire the kinds of friends Luffy made: a group of people with different interests, values, beliefs, and attitutes that nevertheless enjoyed the company of each other.

I only recent noticed that I had subconciously adopted many of Luffy's personality traits when interacting with my friends and I firmly believe that this turned me into the glue that kept us together for so long.

Reading the Fate/stay night VN made me work out harder. All of those vivid descriptions of how much Shirou strains himself and constantly pushes himself past his limits makes me think that the pain I feel means literally nothing in comparison.

Especially when I jog I would think about running through the Einzbern forest, and how Shirou fucking sprinted for hours through it in Heaven's Feel.

And if I really think I can't go on anymore, I hear "Can you keep up with me?"

I have friends from college that continue to include me in their activities. I elect to avoid them because I find their company tiring and nothing enriching. Some of us just reach a point where friendship is a chore. Especially when they are normalfags.

I know that's the Japanese target audience, but I never thought they were the primary consumers in the west as well. I always figured it was a bunch of lolicons, but I guess you guys'd probably get that a lot.

Eh, understandable. Always best to keep an open mind though; most people'd be surprised at the kinds of people who're out there.

>Black Star for wanting to become muscular and strong despite being small before
>Sanji, Shirou, and Hei for wanting to be able to cook well
>Shirou made me want to be a better person in general; always trying to help out everyone possible
>Kaneki made me develop his knuckle cracking habit. I don't know if this is a positive thing but I can't stop doing it now, even if I want to

I'm pretty sure there's a LOT more that I can't recall off the top of my head, since I tend to copy a lot of habits from the characters that I like into my own. And over the years it just turns into actual habits that I do.

DBZ got me into working out.

This actually reminds me of something.
When my brother was younger, I started him on anime. I'd told him that if he ever got scared, just imagine what one of your favorite characters would do and you don't have to be afraid, because they're there with you.
He just lost his virginity as Jotaro.

Grew up surrounded with animu/mango since 3 years old. It spiced up my life.

It was the source of my creativity in primary school and sharpened my chuuni edginess in junior high.
Got me into my first relationship in highschool.

Most importantly, the whole thing taught me to be true to myself when I went abroad for uni.

Blogshit incoming

>junior college days. Kind of struggled with chuunishit and became a tryhard normalfag
>mocked the startup anime club people, thinking they're a bunch of low power level weebs with their laughable genshiken ideals
>pretended that I didn't know shit about weeb stuffs and made fun of people who jerk off to cartoons, even though I AM one
>surprisingly became a popular guy and got my own harem
>was so full of myself, harem eventually thought of me as a pompous jerkass
>Everyone split after junior college, was soul-crushingly alone in my uni program after a failed attempt at being a normalfag
>desperately needed a place to weeb out, realized that I was lying to myself all along
>got into uni anime club's second generation members as a low profile guy, slowly opening up to them and just be true to myself
>got a second chance at harem life. Stepped back and friendzoned everyone by declaring my undying love for 2D
>now an alumni and still have a great relationship with the anime club people. 7 years strong.
>turns out the club founders were right about their genshiken ideals

He was nervous, so he steeled himself.

I remember watching TTGL before I moved and changed high-schools.

I would cross my arms constantly and made sure I was always standing/sitting up straight. It probably made me look a bit more respectable. It surely didn't help me talk to anyone.

God I was such a fucking faggot.

I lost my dream during high school
Anime kept me from suicide, also gave me interest to japanese, and by some chances the high school I was attending just started Japanese Class and became the only thing I was good at
I continue learning japanese during college days
And now, I live in Japan, pursuing my new dream, and everything goes well as of today

If I dont watch anime in the spirit of GTO, logh, mushishi and such, I easily fall back to being myself and not caring. Anime about great people being great brings me the little energy in me to achieve things and get shit done.
GTO definetly helped me realize I can change myself to be less shit
>>
Been sad for 3 month, didn't watch anime during these 3 months after finished Darker Than Black

>>138733260
The anime in your pic related really helped with the following:

>offered me exceedingly restful sleeps
>helped break my binge watching an entire series beginning to end since it took me like two weeks to finish

You know 4chan is above 18 years old only, right?
Get work and make money for your parent first then talk about suicide, manchild
>>
>>138738427
Did you even read my post until finish?
That happened when I was 15, and watching anime is quite fun and stopped me from suicide attempt
Now I have a happy life, of course I don't wanna suicide anymore
