So I just finished watching Samuri Deeper Kyo (26 episodes in 2 days, whew!), and was totally captivated by it. I was totally relating to the characters, thinking about other possible outcomes, etc.
It's kinda hard to explain, but I totally felt empathy for all the characters. While this has happened many times in my viewing life, I just wonder why we do such a thing when we obviously know that we will never live in such a situation, or every hear about such an event happening.
If anyone has an answer, let me know.
