    Emotions for/like a character...

    I know this might seem weird to some but...
    Have you ever been watching anime, a movie, or even reading & got this strange feeling like you could feel the character's pain, but not only that you would wish that you was there with them just to help them get through whatever it may be.?. Sometimes you might just want to be there cause the character(s) are having a good time or not...

    If so, do you remember what anime/movie/book it was & how you felt at the time & what situation the character(s) was going through.?. And why do you think you felt like whatever you was feeling (your life or situation could play a role in this)...

    I'll give an example:
    In Bleach where Orihime left to Hueco Mundo & got to say her one goodbye & she chose Ichigo... She was trying to tell him how she felt about him (while he was incapacitated), but really couldn't...

    I was feeling down-hearted, but yet upset cause who all can remember that one person you felt so deeply about , but never said anything cause basically you was thinking for them or either you was afraid...

    I just wanted to be her guardian angel/conscience or even a friend only she could see... First of all to tell her she didn't have to go, but if she did tell her not to leave anything behind cause that could leave room full of regrets...

    Probably not the best example, but hopefully you all get the picture...

    I have other examples so to speak, but I want to hear/read others' dilemma...

    I hope this is in the right forum section cause I had it in cyber lounge, but moved it here cause I thought that we was going to talk about anime/movies/books etc... Please don't penalize me mods' if I'm wrong ^_^ ...

    Sometimes I'm so involved in a story that I forget that I'm me! I walk by a mirror and go, "Ah! Who is that?!" It doesn't matter what book/movie/TV show . . . I always get too attached.

    Yes...I've gotten into some series before and the first to do so was Ranma 1/2. I wanted to see them finally get together. Along with all the other characters. I get addicted to all types of series and I think that's what keeps me watching anime. Most people don't like it but who cares.

    yes ... i've felt that way too myself ... like an example when i was watching Full Metal Alchemist when "Maes Hughes" died i felt very very sad and upset inside ... it might sound strange but it happened . i think that happens when someone builds bonds with a character that he really likes (to me was Maes Hughes)

    Yup me too. I do feel something when a character is injured or killed,but I have come to live with the fact that we are not cold hearted and the creators can play with our heart strings.

    the one that I am talking about is in the Harry Potter books, like in the final one. because you have been with the characters for what feels like years, I was mortified when Fred was killed.

    Yeah, thats just a characteristic I have. If something embarrasing happens to a character, I feel embarrased. I doesn't work with anger for some reason, but things like a feeling of acomplishment, will make me feel proud as well. I guess I'm just happy for that character. If I can feel some sort of emotions from watching an anime, it usually means that it's good.

    If actors make you feel their pain through their performance then I would say they're good actors.
