ITT: We admit embarrassing anime related things.

I cried at the end of Angel Beats but I didn't cry when my grandma died two weeks prior.

A Chinese cartoon made me more emotional than a family member dying.
>>
I dropped out of school two years at the end of year 12 because of my anime addiction

Jormungand inspired me to join the army, my training starts in a month
>>
I hate blog threads.
Wait, that is not embarrassing at all! It is what you should do.
>>
I enjoy Nisekoi. It's going to be AotS. Chitoge best girl.
>>
>>100335479
R-really?

Characters just disappearing and not physically dying make me more emotional. I didn't shed a tear watching clannad, I don't know why
>>
>>100335478
Holy shit anon are you me? Except I didn't drop out of high school thanks to the homeschooling system, and I'm joining the Navy instead.
>>
I got into anime 6 years ago because of a video called Skittles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpngPL1-Fq4

Jormungand inspired you to join the navy? What are you going in as?

My mum and little brother sometimes watch anime with me. My dad left when I was born due to developing schizophrenia. It's awkward when we're watching ecchi.
>>

What the serious fuck.

Probably a Electronics Engineer, IT, or AIRR. Will sign up to become a SEAL after I'm already in if I become fit enough.

You anons made the right choice. Good job

Ah so you're an Americana, Ausfag here. Enlisting as a rifleman, however if I had my damn license I would of gone for clearance diver in the Navy since they get to do some pretty operator operations operationally.
>>
>>100336286
>SEAL
I'm actually going for that too. If you want to ask questions, you should give me your e-mail and I might be able to help you get ready.
>>
Maybe you somehow weren't able to cry when your grandma died, but thanks to AB! you had a catharsis? It happens sometimes.
>>
I would join the army, but in my country they get it really shitty if they don't cooperate with the mafia. That's not anime related. Neither is this thread.

You were anticipating your grandmother's death longer than you were for the outcome of Angel Beats though, right? That contrast from "proper" reaction makes sense to me, for some reason.

I wanted, and got, two season DVD box sets of InuYasha for one of my birthdays.

I decided to get my family souvenirs during my first and only time attending Anime Vegas. I got my dad a cellphone pouch with Saber on it. I never saw him use it.
>>
>>100336845
The song would be better to listen to knowing that all the cute girls weren't voiced my greasy neckbeards over skype.

>>100336940
You live in Vegas, anon?

Sure I guess.

>>100336960
oddly enough the video got me into two different shows. Haruhi and Himesama Goyojin, the song is called Candypop and I found candypop sweetheart afterwards, getting me into himesama. its was alright

Fuck, which one in the video is a trap?
>>
>>100337168
Ahhh, I'm on the exact same fucking boat here. I had been thinking about a military career for a long while before I realized all that shit was obviously involved.
>>
>>100337167

Hey, bite me.
>>
>>100337472
Ah, no. I was talking about a separate experience.
>>
>>100335478
I nearly joined army reserve but thought against it since I couldn't do foreign exchange into Glorious Nippon.

Typing this just made me realize what a fucking weeaboo I am.
>>
>>100335377

OP, that same thing happened to me and it left me just as dumbfounded until I put some thought into it.

I can't cry when it's real life situations due to a lot of psychological trauma and so much fucked up shit happening that IRL just doesn't affect me in that way anymore. It hasn't for a very long time. I hadn't shed a single tear in 10 years until I found anime. Asuka's "I don't wanna die" scene and her catharsis realizing her mom was with her the whole time in End of Evangelion was the first thing to do it for me. I thought I was laughing or something, but then I figured out what was happening and all of a sudden the floodgates were open.

Anime seems to be a "safe" fantasy world for me and it acts as a release valve. It's sort of useful, and the it feels pretty good to let some pressure out. The only real drawback is that I get a lot more emotionally invested than I'd like to with a lot of shows.

Polite sage for blogshit.
>>
>>100337632
>Typing this just made me realize what a fucking weeaboo I am.
Just accept it. The only reason people hate weeaboos are because of faghags spouting "KOWHYE", spreading the gospel about yaoi, and just being outright cancerous. If you wanna go to Japan for anime or learn Japanese to translate and understand anime, that isn't a bad thing in my opinion, just a dedication to your hobby.
>>
>>100337632
Join the glorious Nippon army, the fitness standards can't be that high since according to my chinese cartoons, it's filled with cute girls doing cute things.
>>
>>100337821
But if you join you will become a beta MC, like in my chinese cartoons, anon. I'm afraid of that.
>>
>>100337808
Field of flowers

every fucking time
>>
>>100337952
But bitches love beta MCs
>>
>>100338079

It's probably my favorite episode of anime I've ever seen. It's just so well done in every aspect.

I had gotten spoiled on Nagisa dying shortly before it happened so I was sort of prepared for that, but I still cried.

But field of flowers, man. Oh god. That scene fucking destroyed me, I was full on sobbing. The train scene afterwards where Okazaki is telling Ushio about Nagisa and he just falls apart remembering her in the middle felt so real it hurt.

Clannad is just one of those things where if you can relate to it's themes and what's going on, then it's going to absolutely wreck you emotionally. There's a lot of subtle stuff in the latter half of AS that really hits home.
>>
>>100338622
You should really read the VN if you liked the anime. So much better. You really will not regret it.

lol can't say anime inspired me to join the army or anythings but having being shown GuP i have never looked at these leo2 the same since.
yes i know the headlight is broken it will be fixed.....
>>
>>100338738

It's next on the list, actually.

However, I just finished Little Busters Refrain justified the 60+ hours I sunk into it last week and I'm trying not to burn out on Key works, so I'm giving it a bit of a cooldown period while I read Grisaia no Kajitsu.

I'm pretty excited to spend more time with all the characters and I'm sure the routes will make more sense in the VN than in the anime.

I used to write weird K-ON fanfiction on /a/ under a tripcode.

I think the best one I wrote is where a Futanari Mugi and Morgan Freeman rape Yui.

Another one I wrote as a joke was Mugi NTRing an Anon with Eddie Murphie.

I'm glad I was never popular enough to be remembered.

I never understood the joke about Mugi being into black people.

Holy shit, stop. I can't stop listening. Why is this video done edited so fucking well?
>>
>>100340177
It came from a doujin called Black Time, Yui was in the third one and at the same time Four Leaf Lovers had come out, where not only do Yotsuba and Eri bang spics they get pregnant and drugged up. Mugifags (myself included) got a little too mad so it became a running joke.

A few over the top doujins came out at that time. Playing on the fears of lonely otakus having their purepure waifus tainted by men, foreigners no less.

I blame how the shows that came out at the time were 100% female with little to no male reaction.
>>
>>100340112
>Futanari Mugi and Morgan Freeman rape Yui.
I vaguely remember that, it was good work.

AS is an emotional powerhouse, man.

Do you plan to read the VN?

Is Clannad(the VN) still worth finishing if you're spoiled on AS already?

stories about you or your life. now please fuck off.

>>100341447
No it's stories about our lives and how anime has affected them. It's that's not anime related than I don't know what is.

It sure is.

If you're a fan of Key, Clannad is a must play. The VN covers a lot more material, and the ending of AS makes a lot more sense.
