Waffleslol... It obviously never occured to you the potential seriousnesd of the OP's situation. Deep in his/her mind something trigged a realistic mental bond with the character maybe it represented a parental figure or a reflection of self. You cant take these things lightly. But yes you must grow up and become aware. peace out x
#26. Liking something is healthy. It doesn't matter if people think it's nerdy. CRYING HYSTERICALLY over the death of a fictional character and being rushed to the hospital is STUPID and UNhealthy. There is a big difference. And no, #46, there is NO fictional character that could've died that would've required a hospital visit on my part.
Reitorating what's been said, "Stop terrorising the OP" I'm sure you would all cry if Spongebob suddenly died. I mean, I would. Hobbies are normal. And they aren't shared most of the time. So OP happens to like watching anime. Anime is just like a cartoon. Stop making fun of the poor girl. You guys are heartless.
this may seem odd for some of you, but really? think about how many teenage girls would cry hysterically if Robert Patterson died. not because he was a good actor, or a good person, just because he is their Edward Cullen. so, I'm gonna say go ahead and cry about it.
i think it's the fact that she was rushed to the hospital because she couldn't breathe that was the problem... i really liked monk a lot, and when i found out that the series was ending i was sad. but i didn't start screaming and pulling my hair out, for example. that's like what op did. it's a fictional character and she cried over it, so much that she had to go to the hospital. i didn't cry that much when my grandpa died. so yes, op needs to grow up. hobbies and interests are great to enjoy, but there's a point when it's just over the top. this sounds like more of a crazy obsession than just an interest.
I know i've cried over tv shows before. I never really do because I'm not that invested in them, but if I'm sad about something in my life and I see something sad on tv I tend to cry a bit. I remember crying when Alex on Lost died. Lol! And yeah it's pathetic. If the OP had wrote "Today, I cried when my favorite comic book character died. FML" I would of laughed and shamefully admitted that i've done similar things. But she didn't just cry, she was crying so hard she had to go to the hospital. There's a huge difference. At some point surely you would of thought "What the hell am I doing, fictional characters can't actually die." or "I'm going to the hospital over something ridiculous when I know other people need help more than me. I need to pull it together." PS: I find it cute that all you nerds are sticking together and defending this girl. Nerd power!

Which character? What anime? I've cried before because of anime characters dying, they make it really dramatic. It's like crying from a sad book or reality show, just animated. One really sad anime was Air Tv, I almost cried a few times in that.
I almost cried when Kamina died too. That was literally heartbreaking. My guy friend actually stopped watching Gurren Lagann for a bit to get himself ready for that. Kittan's death wasn't as bad for me though. [This is @#76's reply to my comment, if it doesn't wind up there...]
Hell, I'd (unfortunately) spoiled it for myself, but Kamina's death was still very emotional. Manly tears! And since I watched the last four episodes of Gurren Lagann all at once, my mind was too blown to process that Kittan died. Probably mitigated by the fact that they had killed off five secondary characters in the space of five minutes not too long before that.
