Anime just takes and blows away the crap called cartoons in America.

The defining point for me is:

In Macross (SDF, for those who don't know the first Macross series), when Roi Fokkā was actually KILLED!

Never before had I seen something like this. The GI Joes & Cobras could shoot 10 million shots never hurting another person (Serisouly, how can a GI Joe soldier be part of an elite fighting team if they can never hit a single enemy?)

Roi Fokkā dying showed me that there was a whole other realm. One that didn't stay in a young persons cheesy format, it showed that anime could be used for real depth in storytelling.

BTW since Macroos SDF was out in 1982-1983, I don't think I need a spoiler for this comment! :-P

I think the appeal boils down to two things for me.

1.

I am a sucker for cartoons. While I can enjoy a live-action movie, for pretty much all my life, I have somehow still preferred an animated story over one that isn't.

2.

The level of maturity and story an anime can have over any other cartoon. Growing up, the old kid cartoons no longer really cut it. I want to experience more mature themes in my story entertainment. At the same time, I wanted to preserve my love for animation. Anime, was a good answer to resolve this for me.
