..I'm despicable.

Posted March 15th, 2011 at 09:11 PM by Dante

..really. I feel like I am a complete idiot.

So, this thing occurred quite a few days ago - the incident which triggered a row of disastrous events in japan, as you all know. When I heard about the news of this massive earthquake that struck japan, the thought which immediately came to my mind disgusts me to no end. I feel like I..I don't have any human conscience or anything. Instead of thinking about those guys who were barely hanging on with their lives and were striving hard to protect their near and dear ones, what I thought was 'Oh dear, now the next One Piece episode's release would get delayed'. Yes, seriously. I can be that selfish. Never thought I could be. Over there, people were suffering and trying their best to run away from the wrath of mother nature. Houses were destroyed, thousands of people died and..and here I was thinking only about myself and of the fact that my favorite show's release would be delayed by a week or so...

Dunno, I just feel so bad about it now. SO bad...

    Honestly, I don't really judge you at all. What happened in Japan is horrible but I don't think it's that abnormal for your first thought to be something related to you and what you like. You're far away and removed from the situation there and something you have a vested interest in is produced there, so you worried about it. :/ You realized quickly that there are more important things to be concerned about regarding Japan, and obviously your first thought is not the thought you're holding on to right now, so I don't think you have any reason to feel guilty.

    You can't help what you first think about when you hear about something. You can control your actions though. You'd be a bad & selfish person if you were outright whining about an anime being delayed (or even worse, as some internet denizens are doing) and putting that concern way above the people and situations there, but you're not so... don't worry about it, I'd say.

    There were plenty of fans who's first reactions were "omg what happened to my favorite mangaka? D:"

    And it's fine to worry about your favorite mangka, seiyuu, director, etc, but it seemed like fans only cared because it effected their favorite anime series. :/ Not that it doesn't make sense for big enough anime fans to worry about that first, but I still don't see how that was the first thing that came to mind.

    Anime is the last thing on the minds of a lot of people over there, because now they're advised to not even leave their houses, because the air is toxic, and things are spreading around, etc. Not trying to guilt you, because you called yourself on it first, I was just saying it as a general type of thing.

    If you care at all, enough to call yourself on it and feel bad, then I'd say you're better off than some people I know. I have a friend who said that it because it didn't effect him, he doesn't care at all. >__>; I dunno how that's possible, but he's not the only one I've heard that from.

    -hugs- It's okay. What matters is that you're not really thinking like that anymore, and you actually recognize that it's wrong to think like that. We're not all perfect though, not everyone thought "oh that's awful!" at first. There are others like you that considered an anime episode or something, and hell, even worse than that, some people are happy about it. Don't you go off feeling bad, dear.

    ...I won't argue with you, but fear and mourn not!

    You are simply a normal person. What Erica and Drew said do hold true. That you had heart enough to realize that wasn't important in the grand scheme of things is a good thing.
