Human

Recommended Posts

When I’m involved with a show or movie I can’t help that I feel it’s the only time I can feel human. Let me elaborate, I feel that being human everyday isn’t something that people everyday can do on a normal basis anymore. Like being  vulnerable, genuine, growth, being you. I laugh, cry, relate, encourage, disagree, hope and so many more emotions everyday. But, I feel I can really let all my feelings out in the open “ vulnerable” and feel more human when I’m not with humans, strange I know 😂

In this type of society that is very true; everyone wants to hide their feelings. Conversations become stale and unfeeling, nobody wants to be themselves, it is sad really. I feel the same as you at times, TV can really bring out the best in me. Its a deep feeling that I wish everyone could feel all the time.

Word. I can be pretty cool, but I normally act cold with people unless I really feel that they're truly genuine.

Oh really? Nice to see that I'm not the only one. At 28 years, it's turning into quite the problem.

As people grow older, they also become more attached to their "being", they are less likely to change into something better. You, don't have to change on that side.

Can't say I relate. I'm typically fairly open about myself and emotions. I don't see the point in hiding who I am. Everyone has weaknesses and vulnerabilities. I'm much more cold online than I am in real life

A lot of Anime is about the feels Anime does the feels so well it's a personal feel thing and I think you made a good revelation about it. I watch Anime to get the emotions I don't see enough of in real life and for some reason, Japanese Anime does it so very well. I think it's healthy to keep in touch with these emotions and feelings as if we were to use them in an everyday setting it would be manipulated and abused this is just the nature of our environments and of course not everywhere just the bad areas.

The human condition has slowly devolved into something that seems to be petty and insincere. At most, people are fake...or put up a front when in public that causes everything around them to become unfocused and disjointed. Add to that the cellular phone and social media and it becomes even more exaggerated. To me it begins to feel artificial and wrong. 

Anime however (as stated by others) tends to use a real emotional drive to tell the story. Mind you, not all titles are like this, but those that are tend to create a connection between the viewer and itself. This is actually a great trait to have as a writer. To immerse the reader within the story and create a bond between their story, and the person. So when watching it, the even though its animation, it tends to feel, and be more real than the reality of the world around people. 

Therefore it's not strange that you feel this way when immersed in a anime story. It really is more real that real life. However I digress to say that you should not overly absorb yourself into anime with those feelings as a disconnect can occur in you from reality and fantasy causing you more psychological issues than you had prior. 

Trust me, I feel the same way. I am a person who seems cold, unemotional and detached from those around me in real life. I tend to be that way deliberately because I'm gauging and watching these people to sift out those that are more absorbed in themselves, and those that are fake or social media junkies. However when watching anime or talking about it I become a more open and friendly person because I have better feelings when watching anime than I do while engaging in societal social normalities. 

But I digress...I believe that if more people acted like the character presented in an anime, then maybe this world wouldn't be so disjointed and unsightly. JMHO

I don't disagree at all. With all the interfacing we do with technology rather then with each other these days its a wonder how we remember basic human behaviors at all anymore. Shows though can provide a look on a less techy world like for example a 90s anime, or a early 2000s sitcom, or even Jdrama. I honestly feel the most human in terms of behavior when I am watching a show about regular life, or when I step away from my computers for a bit.
