Sorry if this question have already been asked, I didn't find a similar thread though..
-
If you'd never come across the greatness of anime (or manga), would your life have been different then?

Perhaps you would never meet a certain person?
Perhaps your personality would have been like it belonged to an entirely other person?
Perhaps your views wouldn't be the same like they are right now?

I probably wouldn't be a weeaboo and obsessed with japanese culture.



I'm too young to see if this is a good or bad thing.

I don't think I would be as open-minded as I am now, and my music taste would be a bit different.
Though my tastes and interests were pretty much set when I started watching anime, and watching anime hasn't changed me massively.
I don't think it would make much difference with me.

Yeah. My Life Without Anime And Manga Will Never Be The Same Because Most Of My FREE TIME Revolves Around Them. Anime And Manga Are Like Treasures To Me So Even If You Bury It Somewhere Far Away I'll DEFINITELY Find It! =D! And True I Wouldn't Meet Certain Persons If It Wasn't For Anime & Manga.
I Wouldn't Be Called Sas00 If It Wasn't For My Otaku Friends.
And I Wouldn't Be The Same Like Who I Am At Present =D!

@Sasu-neko

Nice Topic BTW ^^!

I'd still be stuck in the endlessly failing loop of WoW if it wasn't for anime ... but I'd probably also have better grades X_x'
In any case, Animu = Life > Grades

So yes, my life would be different if there wasn't anime.
I would probably have a life other than the computer, too.

it's related because japan has the D1GP which is the drifting circuit. and japan is pretty much the birth place of the whole import tuning scene so if i never got into anime, i probably wouldn't have gotten into other japanese things, so drift style racing and modding cars (imports) wouldn't be in my life.

If anime would have not existed I would have :
- got laid more in the past
- worked out more in the past
- watch stupid american cartoons from time to time
- got myself a weird hobby like cultivating weed
- would have became a hardcore gamer
- would be an World of Warcraft addict by now
- would have gone out more with my colleagues
- would want to visit Amsterdam as my first out of the country trip instead of Tokyo
- would actually know politics and sports like old people
- would have still hated the music genre " manele "
- would have listened to more hip-hop / rap
- would be probably trying to learn italian or spanish instead of japanese


Stuff like that

Without anime I think I'd:
-Die of boredom somtimes
-Probably be in better shape, though I am a generally lazy person
-Wouldn't have met some of my best friends
-Would play games a lot more often, though I still play them quite a bit

I'd say anime is a good thing. . .within reason lol. >_>

I wouldn't have been friends with the majority of the people I knew in Junior High.
I'd also probably never really become the least bit interested in drawing.

Wouldn't be on MAL right now and would have been playing Xenosaga instead of having it paused for the past hour. That's about it.

I quess that I would be obsessed with TV series then. Or I would draw a lot more if there weren't anime. And I would play all the PS2 games that I own. So I would do stuff that I normally do when I can't/or don't feel like watching anime.

If the world is without anime, then
-C/C+ in my result slip may be replaced by B/B+
-instead of 4 pm,12 pm will be when i go to bed
-i would've got more real life frens
-i may be doing more part-time work
-I won't be called as childish or pro-japanese by some of my anime hater/japanese hater frens
-i will be welcoming a friend with "welcome back" instead of "hokairi", I will be greeting a sleepy fren i come across on the way to my 8 a.m. class with "good morning" instead of "ohaiyo"
-most importantly, I won't be able to enjoy my life as much as now. XD

If my world wasn't filled with anime I would start my own porn empire and conquer the earth with porn("keep thinking...everything is possible")....JK....
Seriously now : I wouldn't be able to understand how the world works and i wouldn't grow up.
I would get a girlfriend(i still like akiko...).

... A world without anime.

I`d be the nerd sitting in the corner quietly studying. Heck, I still am, but I have a bubbly personality still :P

Oh yes, and I`d probably be disturbed more often instead of used to all the violence and gore I watch... :P
