It is a common for me to see anime or even snippets of it and have some kind of feeling or visual to what I am seeing. Being that I have my own small little gathering of characters I am always at a loss to find a place for or to at least really know what to do with them or where their lives should progress; I will from time to time find me using anime inspired things for one or more of my character's lives.
Beyond that point I at times see anime's like Soul Eater and Durarara and be in awe at those feelings and inspirational moments in my mind and after a while will from repeat watching or just sudden realization find that the lessons or simple messages from these shows pour into real life beyond online characters and visuals to a real life and real meaning to the character's moment.
Soul Eater had a few that are amazing lessons for those who are shy or have depression that they are fighting that is centered on social anxiety. It also has messages of strength and the overall general strength of women that Japan has in a lot of it's "cartoons" or Anime. From Sailor Moon and onward thru so many female characters both good and bad who are strong and independent, something most Western animation has for a long time been very light on.
Durarara has many generalized lessons of life and overall amazing observations. The greatest of them is simply the power of people. The power for many people to make a large difference without ever really knowing each other or the person or thing that joins them as one.
Bear in mind, I am speaking of the first Season/series... not the newer Durarara X2.
But after slowly falling into a bit of a trance of watching Anri Animated Music Videos (AMV) on YouTube, I had to see the fight scenes again and picked a rather annoying form to view them. If your a big fan of adverts ever like 5 minutes; crunchyroll free is for you!. However as I watched a few episodes that started around midpoint of her in a bunny suit and then got to the right area to see her fights with the girl slasher who thought she was herself the big and mighty. I found myself noticing something very very powerful after binging that point to the end; amount 4-5 episodes I feel.
