Alot of people have asked me why i watch anime, freinds, family, and even people ive met for the first time. In my mind i cant understand why they even need to ask the question, its the same as them watching tv-shows or movies, even reading books. I watch it for the lessons it teaches me, the memories it gives me. Even though its not real, anime is made in such a way that you feel like your a part of it, you come to care for the characters whos lives youve witnessed. When you finish a story, you may feel like youve become freinds with these characters, or maybe even grown to despise many of them, regardless of how you feel at the end those feelings will always be there. For me, nothing else can give me the same emotional response that anime does.
So thats why i watch anime, for the freinds and the enemies, for the compassion and excitement in every new story, and for every emotion that it can inspire in me.
