Being an anime fan can sometimes be an isolated, introverted kind of life, and sometimes we get so wrapped up in it that we forget to reach out and connect to other fans. For some anime fans, those connections can be life saving.
That's why we have forums and online communities, why we get excited about dressing up and going to conventions, why there are anime clubs at colleges and libraries and video game tournaments and cosplay meet-ups and so much kindness to draw upon when things get tough. We have the power to get together and, to paraphrase a well-known Doctor Who quote, add to someone's pile of good things. Let's keep doing that, now more than ever. Be kind. That's all.
