What do you think about anime watching?

I’m a psychology researcher. And now our team is working under the project dedicated to anime. The main hypothesis is that anime might be a good help for those who have different psychological trauma. Especially traumas that are connected with incomplete family in the childhood. Now I’m collecting different opinions from all possible corners on the Internet.

  • I can't imagine that those psychologists have done significant research on the subject that's considered to be conclusive. However, I think it's completely possible for someone with psychological trauma to find solace in any media including anime. – Jiraiyan 5 years ago

  • If you would like to explore this idea it should be reflected in the title. I don't think this should be focused on just anime but with television in general. – Jordan 5 years ago

What language to learn

I’m a beginner writer from The Philippines. I know English rather well. But not perfect. And I want to improve my English and learn some extra foreign. I think about French and Chinese. It will develop my mind and some creative abilities to writing. What do you think about this?

  • Really agreeing with Grace. Though I also think a lot of languages really revolve around learning culture as well, and "slang" in other cultures could be another point to discuss, if one was to really connect with a certain language. Just a thought. – James Smith 5 years ago

  • Learning Mandarin Chinese has a lot of perks. It is one of the largest business languages in the world, second only to English, and opens a lot of doors. Second languages in general open doors, but I would suggest Chinese. Assuming you're from America, it has a monolingual culture, meaning that the majority of the natives grow up learning only one language. It is more commonplace in other countries to grow up bilingual. In some countries, you would actually be considered weird if you only spoke one language. – Qiao ChengHua 5 years ago

  • Learning any romance language will be extremely helpful in being able to read and understand other romance languages. French is a good choice for a second language― especially if you're interested in improving your creative writing abilities. There is a lot of famous French literature. – zoetees 5 years ago

There is a trend to say that young people has become less educated and intelligence that they used to be. But I think it’s a mistaken opinion because modern youth has much more skills that previous generation. Each child can use a computer. Every second teenager knows has programming skill. We live in digital world. So, communication has become digital too. Maybe it will be better. But time will tell.

Lovecraft’s compositions are saturated with horror. I think it’s good to read when you have an appropriate mood.

Bird by Bird is a really inspiring book. I’ve recommended it for several people and they are exciting too. In other hand, it’s necessary to remember that good teacher is a practice. But good book is an excellent inspiring tool.

Essential Books for Writers

It’s a novel of two faces. From the first point of view, it’s very childish adventure story. But from another hand, it’s “adult” novel with multifarious meanings. I think today every adult should read it to find something new.
