Social anxiety is defined as an intense fear of interacting with others or being negatively judged by them. It can be seriously debilitating, and make it hard for those experiencing it to lead fulfilling lives. But social anxiety isn't confined to the real world - there is also plenty of anime about anxiety worth watching.
Some of these shows, like March Comes In Like A Lion take social anxiety seriously, depicting the character's struggles with gravity and empathy. Others, like Welcome to the NHK and My Roommate Is A Cat blend hilarity with empathy, while a few, like the recent Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu, have a mostly humorous take on the issue. In some cases, the protagonist struggles with a serious case of social anxiety that is resistant to all attempts at improvement, while in other cases it's easily resolved. Whether social anxiety is the main theme of the series or simply an important aspect, it adds a dash of realism and intrigue to the show in question.
