Escape from Reality

Anime is a form of escapism for most people, but for the protagonist in Welcome to the NHK!, it is a substitute for reality. Kon Satoshi takes this a step further where dreams become tangible reality in Paprika. These are the anime where the Bebop movie’s “are you living in the real world” question really feels germane.
