Fictional people are always better than real people in some way. And vice-versa.

I will admit to crushing so hard on Mikado Ryuugamine from Durarara!!. Real guys are never that adorable. Both in looks and personality. I think a big part of the attraction for me, though, is that I have a better understanding of how a fictional guy thinks and acts than a real guy. Real people are complicated.

And they aren't as cute as anime people.


anime people are better then us T-T

Because they are characters with one dimensional personalities and exaggerated physical attributes (caricature). There is no difference between an anime character, an actor portraying a character, and a musician's gimmick, in the sense that they are fictional.

Hmm, not sure really. I found realism drawings of a few females from Attack On Titan:



There's probably someone walking around out of 2 billion who shares at least some features, you know?

Big Eyes and Small Mouth! Measured to the face's that is. Not all of them mind you, but in general.

They also make use of the Golden Ratio

Characters are designed to be the mechanisms by which the story and themes are dynamically presented. That is, they are designed which specific intent--though not necessarily well designed or of very complex design. As opposed to other mediums in story-telling they are very effective at portraying conflict and giving action to a plot. But the point is a character at its best is a medium between the ideas of its writer(s) and the audience. And an audience at its best will connect with those characters and appreciate what they represent.

Of course, the amusement of it all is that the personification makes it more relatable. Ideas have a limited existence, but people can bring them to life. And often the idea of a character is to represent something about actual people, but even then there's a large gap to cross, because we subjugate specific qualities so much that fictional characters are one-dimensional compared to real people. It's easy to love or hate a person who is so clearly defined. Even extremely dynamic/complex characters are rigid and predicable when compared to actual people.

Humans don't typically react well to ambiguity. For instance, the reason people have fears of masks is because they hide the intentions of the wearer. Anime is often very transparent. It's a source of comforting amusement for many, and some get attached to the familiarity they have with certain characters. Maybe because said characters epitomize qualities they appreciate, and of course, do so in a way rarely expressed by any living person.

I appreciate fictional people differently than real people--but I can't say it's inherently unhealthy to feel a sort of attraction to characters. I mean, I'm guilty of it too at times--but it's more fantasy/escapism than..well...people claiming to be married to fictional characters and all that.

Perfectionism is superficial. Like Aokidanza said; people are complicated.

Edit: More importantly, is it just me, or is that anime girl lopsided?

I admit that I have a major crush on Kurosawa Yamato from Say "I love you".
I am also guilty of wishing guys where more like him. (looks and personality wise.)
I think the reason for having crushes on anime characters is because they're just...well. perfect looking, and there personality's are perfect also.
But that's just the reason why I think I would chose a real guy over a anime character It's just unnatural. I don't have super high standards.But, if they had similar trades to one that I liked in looks and personality....I would not mind....at ALL

anime characters have perfect body; long limbs which are considered attractive, symmetry, nicely shaped eyes, the lack of any wrinkles, pores or pimples.
