Because they're the perfect representation of an ideal.

I find some anime characters cute but I'm not sexually attracted to any. I'd rather date a real person but there's no harm in thinking "Oh...he's cute ^.^"

Now that I think about it, I really don't know it's very strange, but I mostly think because we get to learn their life and their personalities and that's what we're initially attracted to. Yet, I do sometimes just watch the first episode of an anime and I'm like "wooh mama thats some hot piece of illustration" and I don't know why. It's a strange concept and I cannot answer xD. And i think I would probably date an actual person. I will admit that I sometimes see anime characters and I wish there were guys like that, but I think I'm content with the hot guys around us.

It is because because fantasy is more attractive than reality. It is why Fantasies such as anime exist, to escape from reality. Vis-à-vis this conception of 2D anime girls takes something we like and quickly transforms it by putting the perceived perfect beauty together. Then the fantasy is completed by filling it with all the things we would general like to see in a woman. It definitely is art although often too risque for self-gratifying purpose of pleasure.

This is pretty much me... except exchange he for she I suppose... I will think Oh hey, she is cute, or wow they made her look really sexy looking, or whatever. But I would never be sexually attracted to a picture/drawing even if its animated. Would never beat the real thing.

I think something like this usually happens after watching anime for quite some time.
But another big factor is whether the person is vulnerable to this.
Whether a person is vulnerable seems likely due to whether they feel that they have succeeded life or not.

Me, I fell victims either way, but explaining the factor of watching anime for quite some time.
With long-term watching anime, it becomes in a way mixed with reality, I start to look at the anime-girls at a different way when I first started to watch anime, I started to see them as close to a real person, I really like how they look, their personality, their voice.
Of course, this also was helped by the improving animation and voice actresses and also how the story is written.
It feels real.

A pathetic person like me really got into anime especially it feels very magical and obviously I rather live at their world.
Even calling out for attention from people at my school seems a bit of failure, they seem to ignore only because I love anime so much.
At one point, I stopped caring...
Anime became the most beautiful thing that has ever happened to me.
These girls that the authors and voice actresses tried so hard to make perfect are just amazing.
so of course they're attractive!

sorry for making you read my pathetic story.

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.


Yeah...in Japan, wearing shorts isn't a manly thing to do. You'd probably rarely see it. Which is why it is like that in anime.

OP (What does OP stand for anyway?)- anime characters are given flatter faces, larger, more consensual eyes, small noses (it's predicted this is what humans may eventually evolve to look like, by the way), they aren't normally given features considered unattractive., etc.


Ironic,especially since short shorts used to be a man's wear,and girls would never be thought to wear them.As i said its a matter of shifting stereotypes.If the mindset of girls in miniskirts being portrayed as bargirls can be totally eradicated,then i dont see why boys cannot be put in short shorts n look manly.It the very least they'd look extremely boyish.See the following link for reference:http://voices.yahoo.com/taking-back-masculinity-9367753.html?cat=69

If manliness were a concern,i wonder why they didnt consider it not manly when they are portraying female chars being dominating n assertive over the male chars,which happens way too many times.Weird way of portraying what "manly" is.

I'm aware many anime like depicting girls in miniskirt uniform n bloomers as PE wear.It'd be great if boys wore squarecut swimming trunks for both their school uniform and PE attire.Then for PE they just need change their shirt.I believe the girls wear the bloomers under their miniskirts so all they need to do is change their shirts too n take off the skirt.This would be a homogenous hot look,not what they're portraying currently

For me, I think it's the personality they're given that I find attractive. The character's design comes second, usually...



As an example, I like the maturity of Marida Cruz's character. She's almost motherly, in a way.

Well with me, it's a combination of the character's design, actions, and personality. My feelings for certain characters are rather deep, but they are what one would feel for a fictional character, and not an actual person.

2D girls are perfection itself. Most of them have pretty face, nice body, and nice personality.

I want one like that in real life. I want someone who will be 'deredere' whether it's yandere, tsundere, megadere, etc.

I don't think manliness is really that large a concern of the portrayal in anime, but a way of depicting some normality. Working men, in Japan, very rarely wear shorts, unless you are a young child or boy. Most anime involve mature teenagers, who dress in an adult fashion. Also, portraying female characters being dominate to the male characters could be a kind of fetish.

I just dont get the shorts being treated as counter to adult or mature status,yet miniskirts(and even hotpants!) are treated as being befitting of grown up girls who arent into cabaret business.Any case,i find most anime really arent matured at all,the way ridiculous scenarios are being portrayed.Of course,there are still a few anime which doesnt resort to fanservice and actually portrays some quality story and characters.Normality isnt something i'd generally associate with anime.
Just a side note,i wonder if they were to ever portray male characters lording over and bullying female characters in a lighthearted and jovial way,to satisfy a counterfetish,would feminists start calling it out as misogynistic.I love the art of anime,but i find so many things portrayed just way off balance.It's a pity,cos it could have potential for great things,if not for that.

Anime, while being atypical much of the time, has to contain some sense of familiarity to attract an audience, as well as give some realistic tones to the art, when it can. Many females do lightheartedly hit males in a more jovial way, but you don't really see the roles reversed often in real life. But, you know, those lighthearted parts give you a break from all the seriousness a series has, if it is indeed a serious show. Anime has a way of including some realistic parts amid the unrealistic, and that is just another way of doing so. I am of such opinion.
