Have you ever had the feeling that everything you do amounts to nothing? The more you try, the more you end up falling back down and having to start at square one. It's one of the worst feelings in the world because it gets in the way of your dreams. Otaku are most susceptible to this feeling in life and everything they do. There's nothing the real world can do to cure you from this either because they're not otaku, like you and me. It might even be more realistic to say that there's nothing IN the real world that you could find to cure us from this horrible reality. For each of us it's different but the condition is the same.
However the world, not being an otaku or one bit partial toward anime, does not judge based off of emotions. But anime is not really about emotions, it goes much deeper than a smile or a laugh. Emotions go up and down over the course of the day, and people are always letting us down. The world is more simple than an otaku dream. If you shed a tear or make a grimace because of sadness or hurt, the world is plenty satisfied. You may believe that the world is out for your dreams, but that is simply not true. It's a faceless, impersonal physical entity composed of the atoms, particles, and light of this Universe that engulfs us all. The world does not understand your dream, within your celestial mind. So grimace, cry, feel pain as much as you can endure because it does not matter in relation to an otaku dream, it's nothing. Sacrificing your wish and your dream over a bit of grimacing, crying, or pain is not even possible at this point. If you've really been an otaku like us, you've watched too much anime, made too many wishes, dreamed too many small dreams, smiled to many smiles, laughed too many laughs, and so on.
Ganbare-o Otaku Nakama!
