How does Anime appeal to you? For me it is the story telling and the beautiful art.. I love a good story and the types of stories which are being told in most Anime, I find anime creators/ writers are very creative, I prefer Anime to most western TV shows.

My eyes are bad at seeing color in real life, everything is darker than it really is to me compared to other people. So I guess the art/colors drew me in and the story was always a plus.

The color and creativity are what draw me to anime. I am interested in Japanese culture too, so it's nice to get some exposure to that through anime.

I'm also interested in Japanese culture and I am trying to learn the language, so that would be another reason I like it.
Genbukan Ninjitsu is what got me interested in a big way in Japanese culture though and even anime and reading a book about the Samurai called Hagakure (the Samurai code) I think it is called.

I find the general art style of anime pretty appealing. Other than that they are generally overall good shows. And since there are so many there are basically shows for everyone no matter what you like.

^ That's something I forgot to mention. Because there is so much variety in the types of shows that exist, no matter what mood I am in there is usually an anime that appeals to me.

The lack of boundaries.

I like the art style of most shows, and some shows have memorable stories and interesting characters. Also it seems like there's more much more variety compared to Western animation.

Or even western TV shows with proper actors for that matter...

Anything, especially if it involves cute looking girls and awesome looking characters.

^ This.

Also, the Japanese really know how to craft good stories and bring out emotions I usually don't show. I'll never know why, but I mostly watch anime so I can cry. It just hurts so good. I love the Japanese culture/humor involved as well. I doubt I'll ever go to japan but it's nice to admire from afar.

Growing up in the 90s I was lucky enough to have a pretty good amount of anime to watch on TV (especially in Canada given the lack of Cartoon Network), I didn't know what it was at the time but I tended to gravitate to it more than whatever else was on.

I watched the first episode of Galaxy Express 999 last night. That came out in 1978. That made me curious to look up what was airing in North America and what was airing in Japan in the same year.

There is no middle ground, they had Space Opera, we had Scooby Doo.

Im not ragging on Scooby Doo, I love Scooby Doo. And im not saying one type of animation is superior over the other, its just a good way to explain the difference and why I enjoy it so much.

Japan just seems to have always been more willing to tackle mature subject matter and experiment with grand ideas, even in children's animation (not that Galaxy Express 999 is a kids show)

What drew me into the fantastical world of anime.... Harem xDD

But I've grown from it and now it's pretty much the story telling and the animation for me

Good story, good characters, good visuals, but most importantly, entertainment value. K-on for example, doesn't have a good story, no good characters, and the visuals are lackluster. But it's entertaining, so all that is forgiven.

That's pretty much what I look for in any visual storytelling medium, not just anime.

Fanservice duh. jk But there are some stories that you could never find outside anime. Generally there are a lot more anime that are appealing compared to this shit they show on tv now a days. However a breaking bad anime would be amazing.
