ive always wondered too why anime seems to be a rallying cry for all the autists out there. its like a magnet for all the outcasts. i think it may have something to do with ego? a lot of people get drawn to narcissistic mediums that are tied to irl identities. you know the actor as soon as you see their face on the tv- doesnt matter the role they are playing. matrix isnt a scifi movie, its a keanu reeves movie- see where im going with that line of logic? anime is where you can hang up the irl and just enjoy the fantasy without any outside world interference. i know its escapism. i know its pathetic. but i dont care. i got called pathetic and hen pecked long before anime was a part of my life.
here is a good little gem for any lurkers just surfing the board:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Neale
love the story of tom neale. guy wanted to be alone so he found an island and did just that. settled down all by himself for quite a while on a remote island. didnt work out totally perfectly- ntohing in life does. cant help but feel i am going to end up just like him though. cant be helped. maybe its a nordic thing or soemthing. no matter much i try to live a normie life, i know its not satisfying. when i was young before i joined the workforce i would go out hiking in the forests until the sun went down. i would stay out in the forest all the time to avoid all of the shiity people in my small town (this was before computers were in everybodys homes). its like i just traded one kind of antisocial lifestyle for another. used to explore the forests, now i shitpost on mongolian throat yoadling forum. wierd world. have another suzuha.
