Many people think that watching anime is a waste of time, but those people are wrong. That's just an objective fact. Also, they're probably jerks who hate kittens and sunshine. If you’re a die-hard fan or even a casual consumer, however, you know that there are plenty of things anime can teach us. From long-running shonen classics like Naruto that teach you everything you need to know about friendship, to unclassifiable masterpieces like Mushi-shi that ask us to consider the natural world, anime can not only entertain, but also teach us valuable lessons.
Anime won’t teach you everything you need to know, of course—for that, you’ll have to read the manga. Hey, no one ever said learning was easy.
