Why do I act like a lonely housewife with anime?anon

I've legit never cried at actual movies, even ones where 'everyone' cried. Yet, four or five animes have managed to crack me. I should relate less to the characters cause they are cartoons yet I seem to give more of a shit about them than I do for actual humans. Why?

Because it's designed to pander to you deviant unlike normalfaggots

For example I cried when Lelouch died, for a teenager Lelouch was then the ideal escapist character, feeling of abandonment by parents, incredibly smart but not exactly the top achiever in the class because 'too lazy' to try, very introverted at the same time not an autist incapable of social interaction and very stoic and reserved and people have hard time understanding me.
Then there is the other side of me who I really want to be, be able to display my full on arrogance, wants to act flamboyantly and magestically, wants to have chains of command under me and have my own order established. The total wannabe Hitler(minus the genocidal madness) chuuni side of me that I don't want to ever reveal to people I know irl and kept to myself.
Suffice to say Lelouch touched me at a personal level and it was sad to see him go.

Makoto Shinkai's movies account for three of the five and they are as normalfag as it gets.

I wonder if it's because we appreciate the display of emotions in a blatant manner more.

>crying for Shinkai's movie
Cringe, I also bet you are one of those cringelords who proudly proclaim yourself a desi otaku in your FB feed and use an anime profile pic in WhatsApp because your real looks are incel tier. His movies are literally bollywood tier soap opera dramas.

Nah, there was something about Kimi No Na Wa. The aesthetics and music were top tier, SFX was gorgeous and the story really managed to push you into the lives of the main characters.

I know it's melodrama, which is why I'm wondering why it hits so hard. I don't have a FB account and I would never say I watch anime IRL, I literally just started watching this shit like three weeks back.

I went to a comic con in India once and literally all the anime fan were the type you described.

Watching romance anime makes me think like a girl, I just wanted a girl to talk to and maybe h-ho-hold hands in the evening.
Do anyone else feel like that? It makes me want to kms and hope to be reborn as a cute girl and then convince a chad to be my bf.

Exactly my feelings.

Honestly makes me wonder if falling in love is something desirable in the first place. If I become that kind of a sentimental faggot all the time because I was in love, I'd rather not.

Well sometimes I feel like, 'school is over, college is over, you're too old for this lovey dovey shit man'.
I wonder though, I was someone who hated romance and only watched edgy stuff at one point.
Now the only stuff I watch is school based romcoms, I wonder if it's just nostalgia(even though I've been single all my life) or wishful thinking about wanting to have a cute gf/be a cute gf.

Same. I always fell sad and broken but i dont know why i keep watching these, isekais are another of my favourites probably cause i want to change my life around.
Fuck romantic amvs i hate when i see what life could have been if I wasn't the wierd kid who got bullied, college is also shit im still the weird kid.

It's romanticized a lot, teenage romances are actually a lot stupider and more dramatic. From what I saw in school it's just an unnecessary headache till 11-12 when the girls finally begin to put out.

ya but like fuck every slice of life anime other than welcome to nhk, een K-ON made me feel sad and awful for wondering what my school days could have been if i had decided to play bit of sports or go to the school trips, god just give me another chance and i would never repeat these things, i would blend in, please.
