In this video, I delve into why neurodivergent people may find anime and manga appealing. While being neurodivergent and interested in the subculture is not mutually exclusive, there are reasons why students who process the world differently may seek out anime and manga. This video is the beginning of a conversation, but I would like to continue delving in in the future, and hope to have further conversations with others who are neurodivergent!
