How to shift into an anime world? Since its inception, anime has been a popular form of entertainment for a wide range of people.
Famous anime series such as ‘NARUTO’ and ‘ONE PIECE’ have been broadcast on Japanese television and have acquired widespread popularity. You can now witness anime being shown in countries other than Japan, demonstrating the global reach of anime.
Even if you only watch anime series or movies once, you develop an attachment to them after a while. Many fans go so far as to dress up like characters from the series! There’s nothing wrong with doing something like that once in a while… There are, however, more stories lately about people who begin to’shift’ into the personalities they enjoy. That means that if you hear someone screaming out your favourite anime character’s name, you might act precisely like them!
Even after reading this post, I still believe that watching anime and cosplaying as your favourite character is a nice thing to do once in a while… However, if you truly want people to treat you like an anime character, it’s probably best not to tell them what you’re viewing.
In Japan, there have been allegations of certain diseases being caused by excessive anime viewing, such as “otaku illness,” in which sufferers lose their ability to distinguish between fact and fiction. Some of these persons are unable to leave their rooms and are completely cut off from the rest of society.
Please quit watching anime if you feel yourself transforming into one of the characters! Then contact your local anime club or plan a trip to Japan, where they will be able to assist you properly:)

How would I live if I were an anime character?
What kind of life would I lead if I were an anime protagonist (assuming nothing awful has happened yet)?
The simplest method to achieve this is to visualize yourself as a young version of the character from a time when you were a child. If you were Naruto, try living your life as if you had Sasuke’s face or, if your name was Sakura, imagine yourself with Naruto’s whisker marks. It may sound strange, but it works because it allows us to empathies with them more than if we simply imagined ourselves in their shoes without any additional knowledge.
We are provided a lot of information about how they feel about themselves, therefore attempting to emulate their feelings makes it easy for you to feel the same way. If you’re having trouble, consider how you felt as a child. What would you do if your parents passed away? What would it be like if no one cared about you? You can use these emotions to help you imagine yourself as them, making it easier for you to walk in their shoes.
Oh, and if your character is impossibly strong, have fun figuring out what kind of training they received before the story began, because it’s never just handed to us unless the person was already that strong before the story began (which isn’t very frequent). Consider Naruto learning almost 9000 jutsu over the course of his life, or Sasuke mastering his eye skills after witnessing Itachi do ONE Tsukuyomi and learning Amaterasu at the chunin exams. That’s impossible for a ninja to do since that shit takes years to perfect, and it’s impossible to envision someone being that powerful in such a short period of time.
How long do you think it’ll last?
This will continue till you pass away (not necessarily when you become an old man). So, theoretically, this isn’t much different from living your usual life, except that you’d be attempting to live like your favorite anime protagonist instead of whatever average person you are today. I understand that this sounds like bringing a fantasy to life, but if nothing horrible has happened yet, there’s nothing stopping you from doing whatever you want. Have a good time!
There is only one thing I need to warn you about. If something bad happens, it’s the same as someone dying and then spending the rest of their life pretending to be that person or putting that person’s face on themselves because they’re no longer alive.
It might not make much of a difference if your character dies for good, so make sure your character doesn’t die any time soon (this should probably go without saying). If there is no way for them to die, there is no limit as long as you don’t mind how strange you appear or act to others. After a while, you’ll find yourself reverting to your old self, but in the meanwhile, enjoy living the life of an anime protagonist!
If something goes wrong, how do I get out of this situation?
This is, without a doubt, the most crucial aspect of the entire situation. If you don’t know how to get out of this circumstance, it’s not much different from your regular existence, except that everything is now more thrilling because it might not be what you expected. I’ll presume there’s nothing physically impossible for you at this stage, such as teleportation or time travel (if that’s even conceivable), and I’ll concentrate on getting you back to reality if something goes wrong.
The best advice I can provide is to try to relax as much as possible and not think about what will happen next. This may seem strange, but imagining ourselves in the shoes of an anime protagonist makes it difficult for us to gain athletic ability in the anime world? How long do you think it’ll last? What is the best way to get out of this circumstance if something goes horribly wrong?
