Cause real life cannot compete against anime designs:

Generally most people are attracted to a fictional character as the personality designed for that person matches a person preference better. Most people I know will say they like a film star but when you ask for more details it's actually results in the character there playing in that film with that person look they enjoy

I've never felt attracted to anime characters. I always think of them as make-believe, can't even begin to imagine them as real. The most I could imagine is being in their artsy world, now THAT I've thought about, but that's just flight of fancy too.

It makes me sad when I try to compare anime world versus reality, why can't reality have as much attractive woman as there are in the anime world? Cause most women in the anime world are just too damn perfect, all of them are attractive in a variety of ways, not like in reality -_-.

i love you this was the best running gag of any show ive seen


anime girls can be created anyway so they are made attractive then they can be given a perfect personality

mainly cause why would u watch an anime were the lead is a fat pink haired character you just wudnt be that interested

and they probably sell so much more merchandise making the character the "perfect" girl/boy

Ideals are far more easily met by the imaginary. That's how it's always been, and how it will always remain.

I always felt a sort of Empathy for Rei Ayanami. but then she's sort of an animated rorshach blot. Whatever I see in her probably says more about me.

Here's something I'm curious about...

I've heard people say, "I wish girls in reality had the same qualities as girls in anime." (or boys)

Why? What would that do for you? I mean, unless you think of yourself as having the same qualities as guys/girls in anime then how would you expect to make any headway with the opposite sex?

If everyone was as attractive in reality as they're portrayed to be in anime, then what would really change? People's standards--that's all.

I don't actually suspect many people seriously think like that...but when someone does seriously change their standards based on fiction I feel like they've lost some sense of reality.

Anime girls and guys are really what people would perceive as someone's perfect being. They are flawless in every way, shape, and form. They represent people's desires and wishes, which is why people would perceive them to be better than the actual thing. However, you cannot touch them and they cannot actually be there when you need them, which is why I prefer the real deal. But, if you were to ask if I were to desire somebody, the answer is no. I don't like humans in general, but the reason why is a whole new topic.

People love anime characters probably so they don't have to please or change who they are in order to please someone in real life. In the real world, they'll get looked down upon just for their strange ways and feel more comfortable with a fictional entity. Finding love and falling in love was NEVER easy since people on this planet are so complex. Nobody in reality will accept them the way a fictional character "would". Although there are indeed people that truly are caring and easy to relate to, you'll have to go through a lot of pain and heartaches just to find that special someone. Some people can find love but love can't find others. There are people out there who will NEVER experience what love is and some of them find that in an anime character. Truth be told, we're all picky, fussy, liars, hypocrites, and complex beings. Most people aren't mentally ready to fall in love with a real person. This world is full of crazy ass people so it'll be tough for anyone to go and search for someone. Some anime characters look good in reality because it's called "professional cosplaying" and they practically look like models. To date an anime character for their appearance only is the same as someone wanting to date a real person for their appearance. All you want is looks but the personality with the character is idealistic at best.

It's a bragging right to say "I dated/had sex this person mainly for the appearance/sex appeal and nothing more". Humans were always so difficult to understand and it will remain that way.

Because anime girls are cuter

I'd imagine its because anime characters are idealized people who can feel and respond in ways that don't really happen in real life. Real life isn't ideal, though that's a part of its unique charm, I suppose. Deep down, I don't think anyone really wants life to be a dating sim.

But we can still pine over the ideal characters in fiction who respond and react in ideal ways.

In real life, you can do subtle things that you think are ideally romantic, and the other person might not even care. Anime provides an outlet where your ideal expectations are fulfilled - just not in reality.

For example, as far as i'm concerned, Sawako from Kimi ni Todoke is literally the ideal romantic interest. She's essentially perfect. But I don't expect real people to act like that, because in real life, that's just weird. Ideals are not merely unrealistic, but they're actually lesser in value than ordinary real life experiences.. Its the same reason why you can read about your ideal vacation spot, but that's nothing compared to going on a ordinary, real-life vacation lol

Unless Im just a strange individual (Which I am), I believe we all have watched a show and completely fell for a character. Im talkin about those characters you wish to god they were real, because you feel like they are just perfect in ever way possible! Like I said I might be the only one but Im not afrade to admit that ive crushed over a couple of anime girls in the past.

So my question to you lovely people of Crunchyroll is this, Why do you find anime characters attractive and if you could pick would you rather date an anime character or a current real like person? I would like to know your opinion! Lets talk about it! (:

My own answer to this question would be because anime girls are almost like aliens, I cant speak for anime guys but as far as girls go I feel like not one girl on this planet is anything like a girl from an anime (Or so ive experienced but Im still young ya know?). Most of them have a perfect body from head to toe yet still are innocent 90% of the time (Unless your watchin Hentai). They all have very unique personalities that you wouldnt find on an everyday girl and it makes them stickout from a crowd which is extreamly attractive in my opinion! I have many many personal opinions but those are just my opinions, I wanna know what you guys think!


I'd say its disastrous if rl girls behaved like anime girls.90% innocent?what exactly are u interpreting?Their behaviour shows that they only love acting innocent while accusing anime boys of having dirty thoughts of them,when its obviously their own fabrications.and this is mainstream anime,not hentai.Most anime portray girls being mean or abusing boys as totally okay-fare,or as a comical situation.they portray girls underdressed as being totally acceptable while not applying the same standard on boys.Anime girls are pretty sexist and anime seem to magnify such sexism.The only one anime girl whom i find admirably attractive is lacus clyne of gundam seed,no one else.

If u can even find a boy main character who wears short shorts as part of his staple clothes,he'd be one in a million(odds may be even less),but u get to see tons of girls in miniskirts or microminiskirt that even those with such a fetish for them would grow SICK of them.A worse trend arising is anime girls in hotpants-just as yucky as rl girls in hotpants.
