For day 29 of the 30 Day Anime Challenge, I’ll be talking about an anime that I wish was real.
While it is fun to imagine anime being real, I have to admit something upfront: I don’t think I would want an anime to be real, just like I wouldn’t want any fictional universe to be real, and there’s a specific reason for this.
The main reason I consume anime and other forms of entertainment is for escapism. I want to get lost in other people’s stories, to find world’s that don’t initially make a lot of sense and then end up making a bunch of sense by the end. If a world like that were to become real, then I would not be able to enjoy it as much. It being real would mean I couldn’t escape to it.
Overall, I would rather let the fictional stay fictional, because it is a lot more enjoyable to me that way.
What anime would you want to be real, or would you even want anime to be real? Let me know in the comments below. Also, if you want to support the Aniwriter through donations or are just feeling generous, consider buying me a coffee on Ko-Fi. Otherwise, thanks for reading and bye for now, Friendos!
