“The Scully Effect”
>The character is believed to have initiated a phenomenon referred to as "The Scully Effect", as the character's role as a medical doctor and FBI Special Agent inspired many young women to pursue careers in science, medicine, and law enforcement, and as a result brought a perceptible increase in the number of women in those fields.

I feel like millennials were fucked by 90s/00s media telling us it was possible to afford a cute apartment alone while working a silly part-time job like cafe waitress while still pursuing all of our quirky romantic interests. a lot of media did this, but Amelie feels like the one that I remember the most

The stories in this anime just made me a better person. It made me think about my life and where I am and the friends and family I have. I started appreciating life more with this anime and it made me realize that I wasn't living to my full potential. It was the first show to ever make me tear up a little bit so it's left a big impact on me. Not to mention I think I've become a nicer person in the way that I help people instead of just doing what people tell me. I started to respect myself more. Not to mention that this show has some of the best art/animation that I've seen in an anime. I started drawing more thanks to it too.
Overall, this show changed my life for the better and was that bit of motivation to start caring for myself and those around me. I recommend it to anyone!
The scene where the mother writes a bunch of letters to her daughter so that the daughter can get them when the mother dies. That's the scene that made me tear up. I started really thinking about my family and friends and decided to stop being such a recluse after that.

Absolutely this. Even Bridget Jones, who was meant to be a failure, was able to afford living alone and have spare cash for bad habits!
On a similar note, Nana absolutely informed my ideas for what success in my twenties would look like. From the close friendship with a creative badass to the beautiful claw bathtub and the small joy of making do with cheap household goods from Daiso, I wanted it all!
My actual twenties are such a let down. Individually you can have any of these things but having it all at once seems impossible without rich parents or an iron will.

I definitely discovered I loved reading because of R.O.D the tv, the show was a huge influence to me since as a kid, I really wanted to isolate myself for lots of years like Yomiko Readman. I didn’t understand the plot as a kid, but the idea of being surrounded by only books truly made me want to pursue a career in literature.
So, instead of feeling miserable because I couldn’t raise my GPA to be a veterinarian or a cardiologist, I just picked up reading as a hobby and enjoyed it until I studied literature and ruined my love for literature.
