Lots of really good explanations on this thread.
This is just a rehashing, but there truly is any type girl that you could want in the anime world. Any personality, any look; they can perfectly match anyone's dream girl. They won't/can't do anything to hurt you. One of the best things about anime is escaping from reality. You know, this topic reminds me of the song "Rainbow Girl" by Vocaloid KAITO. It is about how people are attracted to anime characters, even if the characters can't actually love them back. While that may be somewhat of a downside, it brings me back to my original point; anime girls will never do anything that can affect you negatively. They can be perfect, something that's impossible in the real world.

Summary: Screw reality! Anime forever!

Probably the sense of security. An anime character is less likely to cheat on your imagination than a real girl on your real life.


As much as that makes sense, I can't take your post seriously after looking at your DP, lol.

I second this. Putting together and editing everyone's points here...

It's because Anime is a potrayal of an ideal world, with ideal characters, which, of course, means the girls are ideal as well. Coupled with the fact that so many different types of people come together in the anime and manga industry, and the fact that copies of a unique character don't sell, a huge range of ideal girls, with different personalities are created.

Another point of view s that Anime characters provide a "sense of security" that you can't find in real world women. No matter what, as long as you don't continue reading/watching a series, their personality and looks won't change.

Of course, needless to say, that when the mangaka/anime producer decides to throw something which changes that character in the related media and you read/watch it, then that character can't change back.

Quoting from TWGOK here, which is the best anime to quote in this situation... Talks about idols, but compares the real and animated world very well. Just replace "game idols" with "anime characters" or something along those lines.

==========================================================================================
"As a matter of fact, real idols are limited by the real world. What is an idol? That is the embodiment of the eternal ideal. Yet, idols in the real world are guaranteed to degenerate! Their skin starts to sag and they get wrinkles. They smoke, have to retire because of scandals, and as they mature, you hear things about them you never wanted to know! However! Game idols are different! Unlike real idols, game idols improve by the second. They began as pixelated sprites. Then they attained voices and a wider variety of colours. Eventually, they became trainable. Once the hardware was good enough, they became 3D. They come with complete backgrounds and stories. Their specifications dwarf those of real idols. Meanwhile, have real idols improved at all? Nothing has changed. It's a new age of high-spec game idols that never decline! The real idol industry is a sinking ship! All aboard the ship of the new age!" –The World God Only Knows

I'd have to go with the fact that they have a personality that is unlikely to find in real life. And of course they are made to look cute or hot.
Try finding someone with the same personality as Mai Kawasumi or Ruri Gokou who is also good looking.

Perfection, unrealistic expectations met, and it's easy to find Rule 34 on anime chicks. So, pretty much the same reason girls like anime boys.

I'm going to offer a bit of a different answer that I don't think anyone said yet.

Personally, I love the way anime girls dress. I don't mean the school uniforms, although those never hurt. Mostly just the fact that 98% of the time they wear skirts, and maybe it's just because that's relatively uncommon in the US but I find skirts to be pretty much super awesome. But just the overall style of clothing that anime girls wear is super appealing to me, and I wish I could find girls that dress like that :P

Oh and another thing, anime girls almost always have some kind of barrette/ribbon/something in their hair. Ribbons would probably look weird on a girl over like 12 but barrettes are totally underused nowadays and every time I see a girl with one in her hair it ends up looking super cute.
