Has an anime or manga ever inspired enough thought in you to permanently change your outlook on certain issues?
I ask because I, myself, have been moved by Hosaka's passion and unwavering happiness even in taking a background role. He has inspired me to look upon my position and my fellow men with a more positive outlook, and to be satisfied pursuing my dreams, even if progress isn't made.
And no, I'm not a troll. Call me immature, or easily moved. Call me an idiot for allowing myself to be taken in by what I know to be just a story. I won't be affected in the slightest, because my words are the truth.
He inspired me to buy a new belt.
The Girl Who Leapt through Time made me gay for little boys.
Why did you think /a/ loves him so much?
NHK made me do my homework for a week because I didn't want to drop out and become a hikkikomori.
Well, good for you.
Boy Soprano made me realize, it's okay when they wear a skirt, which lead to it's okay as long as they look like girls.
I used to be a loser like most of /a/'s users. I was a virgin at the age of 19, had never kissed, and didn't know how to behave around girls. Then I came over this incredible anime known as School Days. Through Sekai Saionji I learned how women truly are: condescending, arrogant whores that only want the unattainable.
Remember how Sekai rejected all the guys who desired her body, while she was secretely fapping to the only guy who didn't like her: my sensei Makoto Ito.
Makoto Ito: A loser with no money nor friends. He taught me how to get chicks even though when I was a loser. Stay calm, stay cool, don't look down on yourself, and have other goals than fucking chicks. Slowly they'll be flocking around you like flies on a dog shit.
I am 100% serious. Watch SD now to study the dynamics and art of seduction.
I lost 40 pounds and became more sociable directly due to anime. This is over the course of the last 6-7 months or so. I didn't want to become the stereotypical weeaboo with no friends and a fat ass so I deliberately started being more friendly and open and I went to the gym 3 times a week. I'm happier and in better shape than I have been in years and it's completely due to anime and /a/
Natsuki from Mai-Hime made me want to ride a motorcycle and Kino fueled my passion for it.
Kaiji and NHK gave me a lot to think on about my life but I don't know that I've been able to make any good use of it.
And /a/ made me gay (gee thanks).
NHK made me not do my homework for a week because I wanted to drop out and become a hikkikomori.
I started jogging and working out because whenever I get a waifu I say "If she were real she would never want you" so I set out to change that.
Did you see him get his ass kicked? He lost all my personal respect. No. I should say the studio has lost all my respect
I can do the impossible and see the invisible
I learned to row row fight da powa!
Kaiji and Tonegawa made me re-examine everything revolving around money, capitalism, and repaired my determination.
Here's the second one.
NHK made me do fuck all because I am a hikkikomori.
I never fail to read those when they get posted. Maybe someday they'll stick.
I'd like to say that Kaiji changed me in some way, but I still have a shitty job that I only have for money, and I wasn't planning on going to some super expensive university to begin with, or trying to become some henchman in a massive business. I'm pretty sure most people that watched Kaiji are that way. Instead you just realize that your life is fucking shitty and there isn't much you can do about it besides maybe living in some commune.
I did see him get his ass kicked. And I saw him stand up immediately thereafter, learning from this experience and allowing it to do nothing but further fuel his passion.
I thank the studio for separating his fans from his followers.
NHK and Genshiken (and probably Wolf and Spice too) taught me 3D women are all pig disgusting, manipulative bitches. Kaiji taught me the gruesome realities of real life and how in the end, you're always alone (thanks to "Mr. Barbecue" Tonegawa for that).
LOL, no. He DESERVES to be slapped in the face TWICE by Hayami.
I thought mahjongg was ridiculously boring until I saw Akagi. Now I'm all FUCK YEAH, MAHJONGG.
After realising all the characters of the show were failing at life, I thought a little higher of my hikkikomori side.
I thought mahjong was just an orental Solitaire. but then I...
