There are a bazillion or so reasons why I watch anime, but the biggest one is that I enjoy the artwork and the characters. If course not every one of them bring that to the table, but I know that it's something I look forward to watching.

The ability to tell stories that would never be green lit in any other medium. Can you ever see Kill la Kill being produced by a western company for western televise, no. The Japanese have balls to tell the stories no one else will.

Lol, well besides the obvious fact that i enjoy it. I grew up in a country (bahamas) where there really isn't much to do as a Caucasian person if you are not of a very rich and or noble background; so i was often extremely bored. I found anime was something that i could always get into and enjoy. I enjoyed the relationships built between characters and the over all story lines that often added a bit of excitement to my life. I have various social disabilities, ADHD, Bipolar, Mania, Chronic Depression, Anxiety and various other things, due to some more or less, traumatic experiences of abuse via my step father and a teacher at the school i went to at the time. So i was often very reclusive, not seeking friendships and such. Sooner or later i fell into a depression and didn't want to do anything. But, Whenever i watched anime, all those feelings of inferiority would simply drift away. So in a way, Anime was the thing that kept me going through the day, it always managed to cheer me up, and provide some genuine laughs. It also taught me ways to deal with other people and make myself more sociable. More or less, anime is the thing that kept me sane, and even now, when im at a perfectly happy place in my life, i still keep it as my biggest hobby.

Anime is treated as a fairly serious medium for conveying a myriad of stories. American animation in contrast is usually limited to comedy. That is why people enjoy anime. You are more likely to find parallels to anime in American live-action movies and dramas than you are in cartoons.

There is one thing that I do respect about American Dramas more than Anime in general though. While there are plenty of animes that do circumvent this, Nagi no Asukara for example, it has become a trend in anime to revolve the entire story around the main character. American Dramas usually just focus the story around the main character's life and people in it, but they don't usually revolve the entire universe around the main character.

Like I said this main-character centric narrative has a lot of exceptions, especially when it comes to older animes. My problem is that it has been becoming a more prevalent theme in recent years.

Honestly, I really don't see what OP is looking for here and why he/she keeps bombarding people with questions.

Someone watches anime for the same reasons as why anyone would watch movies or plays or read books ; because they find it entertaining or captivating. There are many reasons as to how one would be attracted to certain shows or genres, but as for an entire medium? That's way too vague.

Because I appreciate the artwork, the music, the voice acting (well in the dubs, anyway), the stories, and how everything comes together to make an entertaining experience and escape from reality. It approaches topics and subject matter and topics western animation wouldn't dare venture into (though whether that's always good is debatable) and I appreciate it for that. Anime can contain a lot of interesting ideas which I like to be exposed to in the most simplistic terms: for entertainment. I initially got into it because I liked the energy attacks and stuff from shonen, but as I've seen more and more anime, eventually hundreds, as I've removed any limitations and will openly watch most any genre I find myself appreciating far more aspects a lot more. I also appreciate it for getting me into romance, a genre I never thought I could possibly be entertained by. That's not to say there aren't plenty of problems with anime; but when I'm sat there, entertained by a show, I could criticise all I want, but the fact that I'm entertained is more than enough.

I like anime for a few reasons:

1. The voice acting is really nice.
2. The plots are all different and have different elements to it so that it would be different from each other.
3. Character and character development is what I like most. I like to see characters evolve in personality.
4. The artwork is great. I like different art styles, it gives a new breath of air.
5. I like the culture elements they incorporated in.

One main thing that I really like about anime is the break from reality. I like to enjoy something that speaks the mind or something of a fantasy life. ^_^

I enjoy watching anime with the same reason as I enjoy reading books and watching movies. They all give life to stories that'll never be true to me. And they're such wonders! Anime had a bonus tho. I rather like how Japanese people talk and sound. ^^
