Our brains are good at seeing patterns and representations which is why we can see faces on the moon or on cars and INSIST that they are faces . It's not strange to see representations of people and feel the similar ways for them as with real people.

You see them as real people after a certain point.

No there isn't anything wrong with it, I have a doujin collection of close to 2000 doujins that I use for "personal" time.. and yet I lead a very happy love life with real people.

There is nothing wrong with finding anything attractive so long as no ones being hurt,

EVEN MY GRANDMOTHER FINDS ANIME CHARACTERS ATTRACTIVE. shes 70 and has a Kougami Shinya hug pillow.

There is nothing wrong with finding beauty in characters created to be beautiful, in facti it would be more weird for you to not find them attractive. It only becomes a problem when you become like some hardcore otaku in japan that go around with the attitude that anyone who is 3d is disgusting and not worth their time.


Pretty much. I mean, chances are anyone who looks at the following pictures is going to find one, or both of them attractive, on some level.





My work here is done.

Where did you dig Freaky Fred from?

He's the reason why there are questions about psychology.

If you didn't find them cute and attractive, they wouldn't sell. If they were just walking and talking cucumbers and melons, very few would find them to be attractive. As others have mentioned, it's the human form. Even in regards to monster girls, if you took away the physical human features, and saw a giant spider as just a giant spider and a serpent as just a serpent, I doubt you'd even consider sticking anything in that direction. Imagining being stared down by that just now, I feel more like I would be eaten rather than caressed and babied. Replace those spider and serpent heads with human torsos though, and suddenly it doesn't feel as dangerous.

Swimsuits and glasses aren't doing it for you, huh?

This calls for a serious dosage of Tatenashi.

Jeez. This is the kind of user I'm turning into...

And all for nothing, too - not doing it for me in the slightest.

I don't know why people keep throwing pictures at you... Maybe some people just don't
find anime characters "attractive"... all subjective anyways...

You also could just be trolling too. There is a "chance" in the possibility of that too.
Regardless what you say after this point...

Because it is a secret. No one really needs to know, anyways.

I suppose you have a point. Kind of pointless, really. I just found it funny that what "most people" would find attractive wasn't appealing to me at all. I do find anime characters attractive (some, anyways)

I've never met someone who hasn't thought that an anime/video game character is hot. I mean they are basically just perfect human beings. Some people think horses are sexy, and that right there is something that I don't get.
