    Default Waz up with anime?

    Why is it such an opiate to some types, especially NFJs?

    It's like a highly addictive drug to me. Is it the art, the stories, what?

    I was attracted to anime because it was an escape from my reality. Often the main characters were misfits like myself in angsty, mystical situations. It opened up my imagination to hope for overcoming my own crazy problems. Unrealstic hope, of course, but still it was a pleasant distraction from MY shitty reality. I find that now that I have my life a little more together anime doesn't appeal to me as it used to. *shrugs* I'm still an otaku though and I still love reading mangas and watching new animes!

    Peace.

    Is it just me, or is there an inordinate amount of anime-based avatars among the INFJ population of this board ?

    At a guess, cause you can watch it for hours without getting bored?

    Let's face it non Anime cartoons tend to be too inane and if you try and watch too much of a series then either it ends (cause real actors want pay rises) too soon or you get tired of watching it. Anime is fairly safe from changes and usually runs for ages.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I enjoy the excellent voice acting.

    *Ba Dum Thsssss*

    Actually I'm not really that into anime, I just like the way the characters are designed over american cartoons, though if I had to pick between watching a JLU and a Rurouni Kenshin, I would probably pick the JLU.

    Most anime that I've seen absolutley smacks of F(e). Given it's often abstract nature, I'd say that anime is the mind of an INFJ externalized and animated.

    NTs seem to really like it, too.

    I have to confess, I don't see the appeal at all.

    Hm...that actually might be it. It does seem to shadow our personal experiences, values, abilities, and philosophies. Although now that you mention it that way, it's kinda creepy having such a personal aspect of our NFJ nature on display.
