    Default What is your favorite thing about anime?

    What is the thing that you love most about anime compared to any other shows with real people? For me, it would probably be the animation. The way the characters look and the way things can be created in anime that would not succeed in any other western shows with real actors, such as an awesome fight scene.

    Killua is usually a kind-hearted and playful boy,
    but once provoked he becomes extremely violent and bloodthirsty.

    With the current technology of the entertainment industry, there are actually a lot of things that they can do now that looks completely real, compared to just a few years ago. The over-the-top fight scenes that used to only be possible in animation can now be replicated with real actors and the proper technology.

    However, I think it's exactly this realism that compels me to stay with anime. I've seen shows and movies that look so real that you question yourself as to how it can't be. I prefer to keep my reality and fiction separate, and anime achieves that for me.

    The hair colors.

    On a serious note: Never thought about it, I just kinda watched anime after being introduced to it due to the great stories being told. The thing is, that can be achieved by any source of media... So I'd have to go with the facial expressions used.



    A couple other things. IMO anime characters are generally pleasant to look at, and as mentioned, seeing real life actors in newer films that make sci-fi/fantasy look realistic just seems weird... I'd rather stick to animation as opposed to real life actors.

    Yeah, good point. I've read some books that have been made into movies that would have been way more awesome in anime.

    Anime is just by far more aesthetically pleasing than other media. American cartoons have a sort of stiff look about them that I don't like and live action depends on quality acting that isn't always there. The fluidity of Japanese animation is at least for me, much smoother and beautiful. Delving further into that, anime characters. Real people do not look anything like them, their clothes are much more plain and bound by the laws of physics whereas an anime character can wear outfits that by the very laws of nature should fall off with the slightest movement. The outlandish hairstyles with all the colours of the rainbow and the most wonderful little impossibility of the ahoge. Real humans can't express emotions with a stray lock of hair now can they? And Goku's hair is physically impossible unless you use about ten cans of hairspray and even then it's more akin to plastic than hair at that point. Then there is the faces. Even the best human actors are limited in their range of expressions whereas animators have the liberty of doing whatever the hell they want with them and none are more expressive than anime faces. The eyes alone are the trademark of anime in my view and I'm sure every single one of us first got interested in anime after staring at those big glistening eyes so unlike anything we had ever seen before. Of course a lot of western animators draw inspiration from it now but the anime eyes is still in a league of it's own.

    But beauty is not skin deep and true enough the wonders of anime go further than eye candy. The stories told are on a different scale. With anime you can get away with plot lines too vague and uneventful for even an episode of Friends or Seinfeld or too complicated for a French art film. Actions scenes that defy belief such as the galaxy throwing madness towards the end of Gurren Laggan or the planet exploding attacks of DBZ and the brilliant, vibrant fireballs that sparkle like fireworks across the screen in every Shonen anime ever made. Romances that would be utterly laughable in western series such as anthropomorphic crushes and extraterrestrials with the mentality of confused puberty-stricken schoolgirls are perfectly legitimate in anime. So much so that we don't even bat an eyelid when we see cat ears and a tail on the protagonist's target of affection. Anime has a delightful awkwardness and oddity about it that cannot compare to other media. Live action is too serious and most western cartoons too childish to even bother delving into the untold territory of anime storytelling.

    And the fandom. Yes there are annoying fans out there, but that stays true for everything. But for the most part, the sheer adoration that we fellow fans share and our dedication to something so foreign and out of reach is certainly inspiring. Anime is still a considerably obscure territory for us in the west but our passion and unresigned allegiance to something that barely anyone else can understand instills me with a strange kind of pride. Even if we are scattered about all over the place you feel a connection once you spot someone in the street sporting an anime shirt or bump into some stranger perusing the anime section at a store and start a conversation out of thin air that can stretch on for ages. We're a close knit community separated only by physical distance but united by our shared love for anime.

    Well I'm starting to ramble but I suppose I just love anime that much , as I'm sure you all do too.

    When my parents see me watching an anime , they always asked me "Why his/her eyes so big?"
    For me , this is a trademark for an anime.

    Believe it or not, I can improve my English language by watching the anime..
    Since I don't know Japanese language, I used to read english subtitle, and I found so many new vocabulary.
    Furthermore , I also can improve my speaking skill...

    That anime can be fun without drama, take Studio Ghibli for example, and i concur on animation, but also the drawing details.
    Just love the sheer goshing fun out of it

    Anime is boss. No other way of cartooning can match up to it, in my opinion. *leaves*

    How varied it can be. It literally covers pretty much the entire spectrum if you find the right series or movie.

    And chibis. I love the cute little chibichibis. x3

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.
