You're getting the meme terribly wrong. It's actually, "if a show has an art style which is not moe, it is pretentious."
That's why Ping Pong and Yuasa's anime in general are pretentious.

Pretentiousness is a meme notion carried forth by insecure plebeians throughout the history of the arts. It relates to TG because Cred Forumsutists can only enjoy a series as long as its plot and dialogue is straight forward, has fan service of any kind and a comfy vibe to it. Anything too literary, too original, too unique, the Cred Forumsutist will disregard it as pretentious. Sorry, I exceeded the time limit.

Eva helped me realize I was in a lot of the same self destructive cycles of depression and poor self esteem and selfishness as a lot of the characters (Shinji in particular) and helped me realize what a strained relationship I had with my parents, mainly because of my emotional distance from them. I was in college at the time, so it sunk in.

After finishing EoE I thought long and hard about who I was and where I was going and had a hard time understanding how a cartoon could make me feel how I was feeling

I get that Cred Forums loves to fuck with newshitters because they watch eva as their first "big kid cartoon" but it really spoke to me when I first watched, it and helped me stop some pretty negative behavior and defeatism in my life.

Still working on the parents though

It takes time, but ultimately you have to give a little to get a little and learn to get along with all kinds of people and pick out the ones you're on the same wavelength with

That may require you to wear a mask and get along with mega-normies, but use it as a passport to all sorts of social situation until you find your niche.

My best friends are street-racers, engineers, artists, musicians, and your run of the mill assholes, you gotta try a lot of stuff before you get it right

Thanks, but the realization that being a NEET made me a lot happier than conforming to this dumb system and meeting people I hate everyday isn't helping.

I think I'm literally a misanthrope, like there's something wrong with me. I sometimes throw up after having spend too much time with other people in a room. Probably just gonna get my fucking degree work for a year and then cash in on my NEETbucks for the rest of my life.

Owen Gray
Owen Gray

I learned that economics isn't just a bunch of numbers and weird mathematical rules that I'm too dumb to understand but is instead defined by human interactions and misdirection/simple tricks from Spice and Wolf. It also convinced me I was a retard in social interactions, since I couldn't understand what Holo and Lawrence were on about half the time or why they acted the way they did.
I guess I also got an idea in my head that adulthood isn't only about having to be a work, deal with shitty people and repress your desires to survive while putting up a good face for the kids, but also about being able to do what you want and fulfill at least some of your dreams, even if you do have to limit yourself sometimes, from Gurren Lagann and FLCL. Yeah, when I was a kid, I thought being an adult was all about the first half.
And I think some Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei morals were huge eye-openers to me in terms of fallacious thinking. Sometimes I stop doing some stupid thing solely because I think "Hey, am I not acting right now just like that time in SZS?" Also, while I was never against negative thinking in my heart, SZS convinced me that it too has its place and is necessary for survival, after countless "ganbare!" animu shook my belief in that fact.

In general, though, while I was a huge believer in "everything can teach you a lesson, and no activity that engages the mind is truly useless" while I was younger, I do doubt how much art in genera and anime or manga in particular, can actually affect people now, and if does, isn't it just a trigger for the changes that have been long time coming anyway. Some things certainly teach you more lessons than others.
Then again, I could come with all these examples, so maybe I'm just being too sceptical about it.

Caleb Rogers

Because the human nature is such that certain things can only be appreciated when you are of a specific age. If it's a 'silly' anime, you need to be young or naive enough so that its tone or its employment of tropes doesn't affect your overall enjoyment. Similarly, you can only relate to a story after you've gone through similar experiences, and the mind of a 25yo is not the same as the mind of a younger folk.

Trust me, I'm a wizard.

K-On kinda made me wish I had friends and specially a club on high school, that after 2nd year I've started to get lonely but didn't care, so I felt that I lost a bit of my life, still I agree with , Tatami Galaxy also made me think a lot about lost chances.

Other than that, Sora No Woto made me feel miserable for never joining the military.

Jason Phillips

Joshua Taylor

Art school.

Blake Myers
Blake Myers

That's not what you take away from Tatami. It isn't the promise of a girl in your life, it's the realization that there are many opportunities for happiness that you have .... that you can avoid due to circumstances regarding your own head. No one has a designated cutie for them who's that perfect mix of forwardness and patient behavior. But if you go about life doing what you want to do you're bound to meet people who are similar minded.

Watashi's attempts to do various other clubs to gain a social life was his undoing, in a desperate move to not be alone ... he didn't notice what he could get if he were more honest with his feelings instead of just tricking his own self into believing fleeting emotions or his negative thoughts.

Don't waste your time worrying about whether or not you have a girl. Do what you want to do with life. If you're happy with you're life, you'll be in a better state of mind where you can meet friends and women whom you can form a connection like that.

I'm currently on medical leave from college that turned into financial leave after failing all my classes one term and having to move back home, and am depressed and pissed at myself for ruining the college experience I dreamed of since I was little. The realization that if I stayed in school I'd be most of the way through my four year degree by now, and yet I have only actually experienced 1 and 1/3 years of college (1 if you don't count the last term I got them to strike off the books for mental health reasons) makes me angry at myself and despondent to a probably irrational degree. From what you're saying, does that mean that The Tatami Galaxy would be a good anime to watch for someone in this situation?

Julian Morris

I don't get what you're supposed to get out of Tatami Galaxy, "try living your life"?

In real life the MC would have no quirky cast of seniors, he'd have no Ozu that bothers and made his life interesting with nothing in return, he'd have no girl waiting for him on a silver platter, he'd have no chance to redo everything he disliked. The reason most people don't want to "live life" isn't because there's too much shit happening in life, but rather that there's extremely little of interest in comparison to the effort it takes.

For any similar theme Mind Game made the situation much more relatable.

You should have just stick around with computer science since it's not as heavy handled as many other standard pay science/engineer class. The job exp can wait as internship comes in hand.

That would require me to not be actual garbage at it.

Even after the coding classes that I somehow got by without ever knowing how to do it I managed to fuck up just memorization classes like assembly.

After a mid term study guide I knew almost literally nothing on and then a repeat of that in the subsequent semester i took at as the sign to drop out of it.

I could probably actually learn it if I did it by myself and actually put effort into it but anxiety, malaise, laziness, etc.

Dropped out of highschool twice, first time after having a false avo thrown against me by my mother, who was an insane drunk at the time which forced me to leave for a different state with a relative. Did a final year equivalence course to finish highschool a few years ago, entered uni, went through multiple anxious breakdowns and episose of severe depression and ended up as a NEET on welfare which just barely covers basic living expenses.

Cute little 2D are the only things which I care about. Would have become an hero a long time ago if not for their pure goodness. They represent the little girl I'll never be able to raise, the loving partner I'll be able to hug, the happiness from just being around people they care about. 3D doesn't have this. Real people are cunts who only care about what they can get from you; you're nothing but a wallet with legs that has a dick on occasion.

Btw, for me, it was Gankutsuou. I remember finishing it and how it had left a huge void in my heart, like so many other great series, but with this one, some kind of premonition was attached to it. I knew that I had to read the original. After finishing The Count of Montecristo I began reading novels non-stop, something I had always done but only for a few weeks in the summer. I was studying Computer Science at the time, but I enjoyed reading more than anything I've studied up to that point. So I dropped out of 3rd year and ended up studying Literature and Philosophy.

Can you really not enjoy silly/typical shit just because you're old and grumpy now?
Most anime has always been silly desu. Even when I was a naive teen or later in my early 20s I knew it deep down, but now I've seen the same things rehashed so many times I can't seem to enjoy them anymore. Some people have read detective fiction for 60 years and I envy how they were able to keep at it for so long. I'd have dropped such books after a decade at most.

So, sadly, no. To name a couple examples, I tried watching the HxH remake the other day (I watched the original when it aired in my country) and I dropped it after 30 eps because its silliness was way worse than the 'good' parts. I tried Nisekoi but it set off so many alarms I had to stop. How could I enjoy something like that when I watched Seto no Hanayome 10 years ago which has a very similar premise? I've never had anything against SHAFT, but Nisekoi was dull and lifeless (even the SZS reference didn't pull the tiniest of smiles out of my face). I tried Shin sekai yori and the plot was so damn ridiculous I couldn't get past episode 10. It's probably the most retarded dystopia I've ever encountered in fiction. Etc. Etc. Etc. The fact I've watched close to 400 series has also made it difficult for me to pick new stuff, so I end up re-watching things.

Levi Reed

I didn't say that I couldn't be affected emotionally by anime, just that I wasn't stupid enough for my life to be defined by a piece of fiction.

Matthew Bennett
Matthew Bennett

no anime has changed my life. Death Note would be the only one because it was my first and made me watch more. stuff like NHK and TG are nice but nothing has really changed me. Anime doesn't do mental health well, family drama is extinct because parents are always overseas, romance is often teen love into life long couple, and there's never any other health problems explored. I guess Japan's society is just very cold, it seems like the slightest handicap makes you an invalid.

Yet you are silly enough to wrongly assume things.
I've talked with people (old farts rly) who gotten into aerospace engineering because they loved the mechas in Robotech. I don't see how that makes them stupid.
Engaging emotionally is one side of fiction. Some anime, very few, may carry a meaning or deeper message, like an idea on some aspect of human life. For some people that message triggers a question, and it's all the trigger they need to force some kind of change. This is what this thread was all about.

Ian Hughes
Ian Hughes

Yet you are silly enough to wrongly assume things.
People do this all the time.

I'll admit that your interpretation of the title is probably better than mine was. If anything, my post was a sort of knee-jerk trained reaction to hate the people who say shit like "I was super depressed but then I watched X and it totally changed my life!"

Someone who wants to be a doctor won't watch mecha and then say "Oh shit gotta make planes now"

I agree that fiction can influence the path of your life, but it should completely dictate its direction.

For me, who is actually still in school but i fail a lot of classes even though my grandpa pays for them, i fail because my depression makes me not want to do anything (still take full blame and feel like a sack of shit), I've finally found the thing I really want to do which is to start a business. Don't believe the fuckers who say you have to do x y and z horrible shit before you can do what you want in life. If horrible shit is a rational stepping stone (ex. working shit job to save for a business loan) thats one thing, but dont accept university and that shit as necessities in life.
