Perhaps because that particular character embodies the person's ideal partner... Nobody is perfect in the real world but perfect gals/guys exist in the anime world...

I guess it is the Jessica Rabbit answer. Because they are drawn that way.

Many female characters have long legs, large eyes, curves in all the right places and no blemishes, often accompanied by short skirts. All aspects that would be very appealing if you could find it in real life.

It isn't accidental either and is an attempt to capture adult interest even in those animes with juvenile content. Even in something like Gatchaman, which is as far back as I go, has it, though probably the same for even earlier animes of which I am unaware. A totally non-ecchi storyline but in the opening credits there is an upskirt shot of the only female main character.

I have often wondered if, as a bordering adolescent at the time, this had some subliminal effect on my subsequent interest in anime. You certainly didn't get such things in the more prevalent US animation of the time.

i don't necessarily think it's a crush...i think people just really admire the anime character's personality and characteristics...and hope to find somebody like that in real life...

^ I agree with this.

Imma ramble now, 'kay? *^.^*

Anime characters can represent certain ideas and characteristics that a person admires. Add to this how the characters are typically beautiful (or otherwise idealized) and I can definitely see how someone gets a "crush". I would suggest that it's more of a "crush" on (or a strong admiration for) the ideas & traits more than the character itself. The character just happens to be a representation of these concepts that the person can see. Thus the character becomes the focus for the admiration, and the admiration can come across as a crush.

Personally I positively love strong, intelligent women. Not "strong" as in "professional weight lifter", but certainly in other ways, and I do tend to find athletic (martial arts, volley ball, and so on) women beautiful as well. Levy is a very good example of this, and she has a ton of flaws as well which makes her "more human" (aka easily identified with). Motoko Kusanagi is another great example, as is Sakura (Naruto)... so on.

Pretty much any character (or certainly real woman!) who's strong, athletic, classy, sassy, dorky, caring / romantic, or self-confident (not necessarily a combination of all of those things) is likely going to be a character or person who I admire. Add in physical attractiveness and of course I'm going to be very interested.

Lastly, a person can "get to know" (in a manner of speaking) the character merely by watching the anime. In the real world approaching a person who you like can create a lot of anxiety, so some people never take those first steps. The problem is nixed with anime. The familiarity comes with watching it.

Anyway, there's my ramble. I warned ya.

Lots of anime fans love anime characters because they're either way too good looking then the average human or maybe their personality.
Sadly, I don't have an anime crush. T ^ T
