The anime cartoon genre is in great demand all over the world. Many people believe that the audience of this genre is susceptible to a negative influence on his part. We are trying to figure out the topic of the anime culture factor on human life. “You are what you eat.” The stories that you listen to from time to time are equally affecting who you are currently. Your body uses nutrients that you have invested in it to restore yourself and strengthen the immune system. 

We build our psychological character in the same way. Thoughts that we accept and share or vice versa, we do not form how we see reality. Stories provide those frameworks in which we enter information in this context. Parents and family laid the foundation for our mental terrarium, but the psychological nature is a matter of choice.

We choose the type of man who wants to be and how to understand reality. However, society provides a set of building blocks that it wants us to use. You have not once noticed how advertising uses sexual men and women, success, and prestige to sell everything – from mint coins to jewelry. Advertisers want us to use feelings of dissatisfaction and envy and not satisfaction in the literal sense because they want us to buy their products. They distribute information developed in such a way as to make us unhappy in our lives and make us think that consumption is a virtue. We must be careful with the stories that we consume. At the moment, there are lots of sites, such as Kissanime, where you can find different interesting content.

Myths are stories that contain the truth about human nature. People shared stories that formed the morals of all nations. Each of us has our inner myths. We tend to use stretching concepts to determine ourselves and others. I am a good person. I’m an otaku. I am a democrat. I am a creative person.

This steganography hides too much and creates artificial boundaries between people. But these labels also generalize how we understand the world. Democrats are looking at the world on the one hand, and Republicans look at the world on the other side. Both opinions are based on experience and internal stories. Otaku, which concerns us more in this article, considers the world through a mixture of Japanese and Western culture.

It’s all pretty abstract. It is not easy to talk about how we understand ourselves and the surrounding world without becoming a little abstract and even a little pedantic in this regard. 

Anime provides another set of mental building blocks than more familiar stories. They occur from culture under the influence of Zen and Shito – Japanese community values. Of course, they also come from a culture that has the same impetus from advertising, like the West.

It shows the Americans, the Brazilians, the Russian another way to live outside the adopted self-correction. In most Anime, whether you have seen it or not, the help of others seems to be centrally subtext. 

This fact becomes a useful construction block for those who look at Anime. Easy to indicate how it contributes to protection, perseverance, and devotion to friends. Here we have an alternative look, which allows you to see American culture from the side.

People help each other without looking for anything in return, and this is granted. Over time, starting to watch anime, you can understand how too much individualistic behavior may be a problem.

Minimalism is also present as one of the main ideological and graphic elements. Art style uses only the required number of elements to express emotions and no more. Not rare, this reception is considered the most effective for working with the viewer.

If you look at the examples of works in this genre when dialogue between two characters, the camera will show the overwhelming number of the faces and emotions of those people that they participate in, combining the personnel plan with the rear background display.

As a result of the studies, many people noticed how it affected their writing style and minimized the entire text to a minimum.

As you can see, anime provides building blocks that allow us to create our mental homes in ways that we may not know. This article is pretty winding, but if you have one idea, we will specify it like this: the messages that we consume shape the way we think.

You can not know how advertising affects us, but it is. Similarly, the films, television shows, and anime, which we consume, form our thinking. Be careful with what decides what fills your mind. If your preference is to live a certain life, look at anime that enhances it.

For example, if you want to live the usual, emotionally conscious life, watch anime about everyday life. It is simply logical symmetry. Of course, it also means that anime can harm you. Anime has some questions about sexism and similar problems that can change your views.

Self-consciousness helps protect against advertising and other unpleasant information. It allows you to watch stories that counteract ideological messages that you do not like.

The genome list of anime is intense and abundant. A combination of genres in anime affects our mentality due to how rich the concept is and how instantly anime is perceived by the overall quality of performance.

The Effect of Anime on Mentality

Anime can influence our minds in many ways, depending on what genres you prefer. Some Anime genres may not have a very beneficial effect on us, while others can allow us to explore new perspectives and change how we see different things.

However, no matter which genre will be elected, too much will have consequences. You may have been watching some cruel anime from time to time, but it will force you too much to consider it the norm and that it is socially acceptable when it is not so.

Anime is special due to certain art styles and, as a rule, exaggerated and fun reactions that anime characters, like any other show, try to send a message to the audience. The question of how anime affects the mentality is almost the same as the question of how viewing a regular TV show affects it. It all depends only on the content.
