Escapism in Anime: Sword Art Online & Chuunibyou

Throughout our lives there will be many moments that feel unfair and downright deplorable. In those instances we may feel weak, sad or depressed. But there is always a way to deal with these moments and one method is escapism. Escapism is a method used to divert the person's mindset from unpleasant aspects of life and focus themselves on fictional things that are more enjoyable. People escape from harsh reality into a world of their own, where they become the hero of a world more interesting and diverse than the norm. In anime, escapism is prevalent in various anime but the focus will be on two more recent and popular anime: Sword Art Online and Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! (Anime, Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!, Culture, Sword Art Online)

Interesting read although I felt like Rikka was being portrayed as the bad guy in the article. She did hold a delusional belief but that was because her family kept it a secret from her before they told her the truth.
