im doing a paper in my L.A class where we can an essay on whatever we want so being that im a hopeless otaku lol i picked anime/manga. so i was wondering if you could answer one question for it. both negative (which is probably unlikely) and positive answers are welcomed ^_^ THANKS biggrin

What is Anime/Manga to you? what are your thoughts? smile

We crush the caterpillars then complain there are no butterflies

Is the glass half empty, half full, or twice as large as it needs to be?

Who's cruel idea was is to put the 's' in lisp?

A hobby. Just like gaming and music. Different stuff in different times. Animu goes better with alcohol than games and most music, as I don't listen to anything that plays on the dance floor and alcohol makes high frequency sounds harder to hear. When I want to relax a bit, I watch it, because most of my hobbiest are geared towards the hardcore side. I do read mango at times too, but only the psychological stuff keeps me focused long enough to not start doing something else when I am sluggish.

Something to enjoy.... A hobby I suppose

Is this me in a nutshell?
Pretty much.

I view anime and manga in somewhat the same way I view any other media I enjoy:

- a hobby, because I enjoy the media I chose
- an escape from reality like when I'm ill or having a hard time I can just jump into a manga and deal with stuff once I've given myself a break
- a way to see things in a new light or to think about new ideas
- my current obsession (I tend to jump headfirst into something and lose track of everything else. Then I find a new obsession, and the cycle continues etc.)

manga and anime to me are things that i see as very obsessive hobbies, but nothing more than that. I enjoy them quite a lot, but if I had a choice to hang out with my friends or stay home and read anime and watch manga, I would go out. I agree with BewareOfArtists that it is a way to escape reality, but it can't so much so that you lose sight of all your homework, goals, and relationships
