"I grew up in a rural area and anime was the colorful influence that help me explore life outside of what I knew at the time. Then In 2019 I moved across the country and unexpectedly anime helped me land a cool job with Anime Station where I’ve been working since.
My favorite anime is Berserk with a close 2nd Devil man."
“I remember back to the first days I started watching anime, to me it watching shows beyond reality and my dreams. I would always just like play ninjas with my friends growing up or waking up and wishing I had any kind of power, but never did sadly. I’ve only been working at AnimeStation for a few months and its not only expanded my love for anime, its shown me a new world of it, and I can’t wait for the future for both me and this store."
"Most of time anime means all animated works from Japan but to me it has helped me get through a dark time when I was young. It still helping with my depression right now. It’s not just animations that people made for entertainment but also an important support in my life. I would say there is no one could get me over my anime addiction."
"I am Yingting, and I love animation; it is a kind of human heart, whether you are sad or happy, depressed or excited; you can find a specific incarnation in spirit. Watching animation can relax the mood in time and adequately relieve the pressure, let people travel freely in fantasy, find their ideals and activities in the spirit. I have watched a lot of anime, and it is no surprise to see any weird things. The exorcist in the exorcist boy, the ghosts and gods in the young Onmyoji, the monsters in Inuyasha, the devil fruit in One Piece, the ninja in Naruto, the insect world in the Mushishi, the virtual world in the computer coil. Many, many, too many to count; this is how anime provides us with a bizarre world. I'm learning 3D animation games now, and I hope to work in the industry one day."
"Anime to me was always a way to bring my friends and I closer together. My music, my clothes, even my chosen name, has all derived from anime. "
Naruto (Original and Shippuden)
Dragon Ball (Original, Z, and Super)
"For me, anime is like a key that opens the door to a new world. It makes me feel inexplicably powerful and comforting. The first time I watched anime was when I was in first grade. The anime I watched on TV at that time was "sunrise". In front of the TV, I saw the smart and witty hero and his various partners fighting against the evil forces, and it showed me that there is such a beautiful and dangerous world besides the world of everyday life, which exists in a small TV anime but is so real in my eyes. This makes me want to pick up a sword, like the hero in the animation, to protect my family and friends and all the good creatures living on the same planet."

"For me, anime is a kind of visual art presentation that is different from film and television. I, personally, think that animation is a form of artistic expression with a relatively high degree of freedom and flexibility in creation and performance. Simply to say, there is no limitation of creation for anime creators, they could create anything looks cool. For instance, EVA is a good example to explain why anime has no limitation in art creating. Anime is the art of imagination. Through bizarre settings, unpredictable characters, scenes and props, then bring the audience into an imaginative world. No matter how miraculous the world is, what is ultimately transmitted is the power that shines into reality and acts on real social life."
"Anime to me is a portal to another reality. I like to think that every anime is an alternate universe which we only get to watch through the show or film. "
