Has there ever been a point IRL where you got into a situation exactly like in an Anime? Or do you know of people/settings that are IRL examples of people/settings in Anime?

Here are my 3.

Accidental Pervert


Wincest Protagonist


High School Harem


Okay, that's it, apologies for trying to be funny, I guess I'm just in a good mood. It's likely no one will reply to this anyway or this thread will get locked because I'm an idiot and didn't realise there was another thread just like this.
No.

I don't have any stories to tell you, only because I'm surrounded by utter idiots most of the times. But I just replied so you don't feel lonely. *brofist*

They usually skip those computer scenes if they ain't important, so yeah, no way it's a real life situation.


But same here, except for sundays and saturdays... But I'll stay with my family this time D:. So sad.

Well, that's the definition of me. Sleep till 2AM~ Wake up at 6h30AM to watch more and download on ipod to watch at school. At school, sleep/watch during class and during lunch.
I wonder how much longer I can do that. It's pretty hard on my studies even if I'm in the safe zone for now.

I'm not as bad as that, but I am watching WAY too much. I'm on a break from school at the moment in order to study for big exams, but I'm not. I'm powering through a new series each day. My studies are fucked. But I can't stop, I dunno it's like an addiction.

i sleep in class all the time. I dont know if thats an anime situation but ya.. im doing well in my classes High B's or Low A's. It's just that in Animes you have way more universities to choose from but here there is only like 2 actual universities.. so sleeping does affect grades. If i didnt sleep i might get higher idk.

For the past year and a half 4 different 18-22 year old women have stayed in my house, one at a time for a few months to help my mother with her new children. Not to different from that whole 'random girl moving in' business that happens sometimes.

Shame they are 3d, though..

One day, when I was late and running to school with bread in my mouth, I went the wrong way and ran into this bunny and penguin fighting each other. They were using some sort of magic and the bunny gave me this weird looking bracelet and told me to yell out, "henshin transform!" I did, and all of a sudden I was twirling around while being magically stripped then redressed into a pink dress with frills and whatnot. The bunny told me I had to protect the earth as a mahou shoujo so I can eventually grant everyone's wishes.

True story.

In my first highschool year I used to walk around with a group of five friends, in which four were girls and only one was a boy. Two of these girls crushed on the boy. I'm guessing this counts as a harem setting lol
But nothing happened in the end, they were just silly playful crushes, meh.

Id have said left, as well, but it really depends if you are looking at it from the teachers pov or the students pov, lol.

Well considering the main protagonist is usually the students in about 99% of the anime. Unless your a badass like The Great Teacher Onizuka it will usually be the left side.

The world may never know.

That's the left side. She's leaning on her right hand looking the opposite way so the windows must be on the left.
Best example in my opinion, can never go wrong with Haruhi Suzumiya. I DEMAND MOAR.

Maybe its just the difference between looking at the anime from the students pov or the 'cameras' pov.

@Ragix its OUR right and HER left. He looks at it from our pov, we look at it from hers I guess.

That explains it. I'm a film student so I'm always speaking in terms of camera right or camera left.

So debating on what classroom side now is a real life anime situation? LOL Ah what the heck, I'll join in anyway. I agree that it does depends on who's view the camera is using, either the student's or the teacher's but it always have been the left side for me, i.e. the student's POV.
Nothing is an absolute reality, all is permitted.

If we are talking about the architecture of how the classroom is built it is the left side.(Since the right side leads back into the hallways unless the class is on the opposite side of the building.)

Also technically that picture of Haruhi is from Kyon's PoV who is also sitting on the left side of the classroom as well but simply turned around on his desk to look at Haruhi.

Let's just meet half-way and say sitting in the back of the classroom next to a window. It gets to complicated with PoV because one second I could facing one way and another second I could be facing the other way.

I also just thought about it but is this even considered a "situation"! LOL

Real life anime situations?
Hmmm...
Oh, there is one I can remember! I was 14-15, on the club's pool, playing around with two friends of mine (they were girls, but I wasn't doing it in the perverted or wanting something else, we just happened to meet at the pool by coincidence.) So then one of the girls took a dive... When she surfaced, she had lost her upper bikini piece. She didn't notice it immediately, but she noticed something was wrong because well, I certainly had a troubled and embarassed look in my face, and so did the other girl. When she noticed it, she panicked, I turned away covering my eyes and saying "I didn't look! I didn't look!", fearing I'd get uber-punched ahahaah x3! Lucky her that the pool was empty that day.

I dk if it counts, but I do sit in the 2nd row from back to front, by the window, and constantly look out at the sky and daydream. Typical anime character behavior ahahaha :P.

I don't know if this counts too, but there's also my hometown, which is pretty much Higurashi's Hinamizawa. It's very small (2000 habitants more or less, just like the anime's), it's "wrong" in many ways you can't quite tell why, everyone knows each other there, everyone is suspicious of "outsiders", and I'm pretty sure there's an odd shrine somewhere. Oh, did I mention the cicada? But other than these similarities, it's pretty dull and boring there.

The day after I finished watching Another, I was wearing a scarf to school. At lunch, one end of the scarf got stuck between the strap of my backpack and my shoulder. While I was trying to pull it loose, my friend accidently pulled on my backpack, making the scarf constrict around my neck tightly. Thankfully, she realized and quickly let go, otherwise I really could have choked. But yeah, no joke, I seriously thought I was going die a horrible, Another-esque death that day.

I have taken note of a couple of "indirect kiss" drink-sharing situations. One with a girl I used to like back in high school, though this was after she'd married a friend of mine. Another was with that anime standby of a girl who's a "vaguely related cousin." Or actually, she's my mother's brother's wife's sister's daughter... so she's not related to me at all. (Kind of like Kippei Katakura and Miki Sakashita in Aishiteru ze Baby.) And no, I didn't say anything about these indirect kisses at the time, nor did I take them as seriously as anime characters do.

I'm extreeeemely clumsy, and there have been so many situations where I've tripped and broke things, but it's not as cute as anime -.-"
I'm also really absent-minded, and I say/scream random things, and I guess it's somewhat anime-like.

But as for a specific situation, I really liked this one guy in middle school, but I was so embarrassed to talk to him, even though he was all I thought about at the time. My friends once pushed me onto his lap at lunch and I seriously almost fainted..
