Well this is a question to make me feel a little better and to see if the effects on me are just my fault or whether it's common. Tell us the GOODS and BADS in your life as a result of anime

THE GOOD: I feel anime has fairly well affected my life and because of anime i have become a MUCH happier person. I feel it's made me more cheery and i don't become stressed about things as easily. Also quoting anime out aloud is always fun....you and a few friends who have seen the series something came from have a great laugh and everyone else kinda giggle just because of the insanity of it all.

THE BAD: A kinda bad affect it's had on my life is that a few people have come to the conclusion that because i like anime that i have an asian fetish.........which isn't true! Also I find myself watching anime series late into the night when i should be doing homework...but i figure if it wasn't anime it would just be games or something else.

Good - lots of inside jokes between myself and the anime. I like that.
Good - can cheer me up
Good - can make me think about life.

Bad - Some people think its geeky. But I don't really care.

Nothings wrong with having an asian fetish!

good: The enjoyment knowing that there is a big enough fan base to support multiple production companies/ knowing that because of anime I am a way better student in my study of a foreign language (meaning Japanese) I'm actually trying and wanting to learn!/ I am exposed to a different culture, all-be-it from a televised interpretation of said culture/ I feel that I've invested in my purchases of dvds and I can watch them whenever I want and so I don't feel quite so bad about spending all that money!

BAD: I'm broke! Anime = $$$$$$$$$ And I do go on occasional "watch the entire series in one sitting" binges. These wreak havoc on my sleep schedule, though I try not to do them when I have prior obligations, like homework, which means I have to wait! >_<

Overall: Anime = good

from an anime newbie's point of view:

good: a good conversation starter, source of music , it's fun , there's a lot of it to see so i won;t get bored of it (at least not for a while) , boyfriend has anime so it's not costing me anything so far...

bad: time consuming and feeling slightly lost cso i've not seen much (and other friends have)

Good: Exposes me to the more unique people
Good: Gives me a little bit of fame that I can work with (I have over 250 completed series - the anime freaks at my school kind of flock to me for my collection).
Good: Another form of escapism.

Bad: Time waster.
Bad: After watching so many animes, I am starting to get a skewed vision of the world.
Bad: Squeaky voices are constantly in my head. Seriously.
Bad: Also gives me some bad fame (you know..those people...anime=porn <<; /sigh)
Bad: Contributes to my hermitism.

Yup.

Good: There's a lot of cool merchandise for anime.
Good: A huge variety of different types of anime makes it so there's always at least one show that I like.
Good: Games are based off of it.
Good: Anime has inspired me to take up drawing as a more serious hobby.

Bad: Not a lot of people in my school like anime, so they think I'm strange. Of course, they already thought that... -_-'
Bad: Most non-anime fans that I know haven't seen any anime except for Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon, so they think that all anime is like that- and therefore think I'm "immature" or something.
Bad: I tend to get obsessed with my favorite anime- and my sister likes to tease me about it.

Everything happens for a reason, the key to life is to learn what matters most, is that your Answer?
