ITT: Why you watch anime.
I do it because more often than not, cultural differences bleed through and things that are supposed to be completely serious in an anime end up being hilarious and things that were meant to be funny in the first place end up being even funnier. Also, Anime seems to be better at telling contained, one-off stories than western animated entertainment so I can watch a 12-26 episode anime instead of having to watch a 3 season cartoon with 6 hours of filler episodes.

At first it was because The art looked cool, especially the girls. Then It became more about high school girls and now it's just a mix of all. Now it's really my main source of entertainment way over video games.

i watch anime and western cartoons because i think animation allows for imagery and consents that would look silly in live action

the Japanese are the only ones who consistently bring out new fantasy/scifi/what ever -stuff.

also...I find animation, as a form of entertainment, very interesting

i don't even really watch it for the japanese animation but simply because i realize the anime domain simply holds better stories and writing than usual tv shows (Hell, art stopped being a criteria after dead leaves).

so yeah, writing, and that's prolly why i kinda shut down from watching an anime when i see the plot being too clumsy or falling into clichés

User avatar #504508 to #504506 - herecomesjohnny (02/10/2013) [-]
yeah, and way to make my 'good writing' point come tumbling down heh

but seriously? i'm at ep.6 and somehow i find it pretty entertaining, konata's fun, may have judged it quickly

Asking things like "why do I watch anime" is like asking "why do I read books", I watch them because they are entertaining

1. Because anime is the only thing that helps me forget about reality while watching it.
2. For the moe
3. For the ecchi
4. Because these days very few things are entertaining, but anime always keeps me amused, makes me laugh, feel and get excited. Basically it keeps me alive, sane and human.
5. Because I'm simply bored and need a time killer.

What... is anime supposed to be special or something? It's like asking "Why do you play video games"

Probably for the escapism, anime pulls that off well.

I tried fencing for a while. It was fun, but I could never control my impulse to stab the fucker and would always get penalized.

i tried watching my wall too, but it wasn't nearly as entertaining as anime, so i rather went with that

Because its better than anything on TV nowadays

I like the style and the unconventional(by western standards) plots. I still remember viewing Haruhi as a really strange show when I was a wee little babby.
