The level of detail in the animation and the continuity is why I like it. Most anime have a plot/storyline where as the American animation I grew up with (Looney Tunes, for example), just had short stories that never tied into this. That being said, when American cartoons started to have proper storylines (Gargoyles comes to mind), I was totally hooked on those, too.

I will like many animes that have characters that I can really get into, but mostly romamce/comedies appeal to me here.

storyline and characters. the highly developed (in most cases) art style is also really enjoyable.
and just so much variety. Gundam vs Macross; well, yes they're both "mecha shows".. but the entire concept behind how they are executed is completely different. Gundam (as much as i've seen; i admit it's limited) is all about politics and international tensions. Macross is about music and love, and fighting "alien" enemies.

i can't understand how american series can just ignore the draw of a continuous storyline through-out the course of a show, rather than just a 22 minute "crisis" every week.... or trying to do something -original- with their work rather than just going with whatever the last show proved works, and tweaking it a little bit.
