Despite how unrealistic the stories in something like Anime can be, a colorful imagination can help people process their own realities. It can be a method of escapism and even empowerment - just listen to the spirit and positivity of “I’m a Joestar (Black Power Fantasy)”. This can be especially appealing if one happens to be Black in America. To be blunt, cops and other tools of white supremacy would probably be a lot easier to deal with as a Super Saiyan or a Hamon user. According to rapper Open Mike Eagle, this was, more or less, the initial concept behind what would end up being Anime, Trauma and Divorce - before the divorce turned his life upside down.
