"Evenings with Isabelle" Combating Anxiety and Depression with Animal Crossing and Fandom. A large number of anime and gaming fans deal with depression on a daily basis. In that daily struggle many of us have turned to gaming and online communities formed around the things we love for comfort and cool down. From gamers kept company by "lets play" videos and online content creators, to acting mayors of towns filled with talking animals - come discuss how gaming and fandom have helped you through the rough patches of your day to day adventures.
