What is so good about Anime that people over 16 still watch it?

You're probably thinking about anime in the same sense as you would think about western cartoons (correct me if I'm wrong). Anime is one of the most original art forms out there, in my opinion. It's also deep within Japanese culture, and they see anime as they would see a real life tv show, but the possibilities with drawing go way beyond that of a live action tv show with a "small" budget.

Above all it's really entertaining, and I only started watching 3 years ago, which now I'm 23. As you get older or in my case more familiar with anime, you're taste also evolve, and in anime there's always something out there that will meet you're new found likes.

P.S - Before anyone calls me out, this post was in response to the original poster


No. Actually the storyline was one of the things that I like most about anime. I think that is not so original because apparently like 65% of the people in Crunchyroll can draw it. People in Japan call you "childish" if you watch anime. Well I've watched anime since I was like 6. Maybe I grew out of it because of the crowd I grew up with. They openly say they don't like it and hanging out with them I got used to more physical activity or being with someone. On the videogame note: Yeah I do enjoy videogames a lot. Probably more than what I enjoy anime. However, I will stop playing them after college. Remember the saying: "There is a time and place for everything".

I LOLZ my ass off when i read this...

this thread is purely stupid. its like asking "why does a man and women fuck each other?". alot of ppl assume anime are like SpongeBob SquarePants, the usual cheesy jokes and kids level story plots. You know what? ITS NOT!!!!

Watching anime and reading manga is an hobby, we can do what ever the hell we want (that's legal of coarse).

True, most people consider anime, cartoons, video games a waste of time, but isn't sitting and watching tv for 5 hours a night after work a waste of time too? Or walking through a mall with friends. I mean nothing really gets accomplished. People can bring up these kind of topics until the end of time. All that really matters is how you want to spend "your" life. Doing what makes you happy and relieves stress. Anything done in life someone is always going to think it's a waste of time. It doesn't matter what it is, do what makes you happy in life and let the others do whatever it is that "wastes" their time, in your opinion.

If you put it like that there would be no point to threads or anything. It would all be just an empty argument...

If you think it is stupid don't comment. A man and a women fuck to reproduce. If you make anime reproduce or vice-versa then you are not human. I know that anime is not SpongeBob. I know you can do whatever is legaly right. Read my comment on it rather than just the topic title when commenting, dumbass.

Anime is like any other form of media. Music, video games, television dramas, you name it. When it all comes down, anime, like other media, is just a way of having fun. Why do adults watch those dramas on television or listen to music? I can't say this for sure, 'cause I'm not one, but I don't think it's a stretch to say they do that because it's a way to have fun and relieve stress. I imagine adults (or anyone else for that matter) would watch anime for generally the same reasons.

I did read your comment, that's why i'm saying its stupid and that's why I'm commenting your thread because its stupid. The question with the man and women was an rehorical question that didnt need to be answer ...

Oh about the "legal thing" I was just using it as a joke (your talking to an guy who downloads tons of illegal shit off from the internet).
