When you think of “motivation”, the 1st thought that comes to most people’s minds is – motivational speakers.
After all, there are plenty of those types of videos on YouTube, TED Talks, etc.
And if it’s not motivational speakers, it’s motivational films or celebrities.
But what about Anime?
Most people don’t consider Anime to be motivational.
It’s the last thing that comes to mind if you’re talking about motivation.
But real Anime fans know that’s far from the truth.
Every fan of Anime can name a bunch of shows that are motivational and inspiring.
Let’s talk about that. Because Anime Motivation is a real thing…
This Is Why Anime Is More Motivational Than Most People Would Think.
1. Anime shows can teach you important life lessons
The Anime itself doesn’t have to be motivational to teach you life lessons.
Life lessons can be taken from comedy Anime’s or slice of life Anime shows.
Or anything for that matter. It depends on your outlook and perspective.
There are a couple of Anime’s packed with important life lessons.
Sword Art Online
And hundreds of other Anime shows in many different categories.
2. Anime shows can make you think about life
And that’s what motivation is about. It’s not just about giving you the drive to achieve something.
Motivation is also about making you think about life. It’s about giving you reasons to get up and do something.
And there are plenty of Anime’s that do that.
Here are a couple of those Anime shows:
The Legend Of Legendary Heroes
Full Metal Alchemist
3. Anime music is inspirational
Anime isn’t just about the shows themselves, it’s about the music.
The instrumentals that play through different episodes and different Anime scenes.
And there are plenty of great Anime instrumentals that are inspirational.
Some make Anime shows even more inspirational than they would be without the music.
Here are a few examples:
Code Geass – Innocent Days
Magic Knight Rayearth – Main Theme Orchestra Music (Remix)
Fruits Basket – Opening Theme Song
Kanon Anime Music – Soundtrack 10
