Does anyone here use anime as a sort of self-help? Do you gravitate towards anime with characters that you identify with more, or would like to be more like? Do you ask yourself "What would this character do?"

When faced with personal problems I'm often thinking in a very cautious, reserved manner before being like, "What would Akagi do?" A meaningless death is the essence of gamble. You need to shoulder risk to get ahead...

Or sometimes I'll be thinking in a really uptight or depressing or self-defeating way and sort of realize it isn't good to live like that, it's better to be more carefree and take things as they come, like Spike, or Onizuka.
