A few years ago YouTube channel Misty Chronexia published a video called ’25 Anime with Hidden Mental Illness’.

I think it is fantastic that someone has taken the time to create a video that helps bring an awareness about mental illness. Below is what the channel had to say about what went into the making of such a video.

  1. Sometimes it isn’t so “hidden”. It’s just that nobody comes out and labels it as such.

    Sawako in Kimi ni Todoke is written like someone looked up the diagnostic criteria for high function autism and said, “Let’s write her just like this.” It is a great anime, partially because they got the behavior spot on.
