I was drawn into anime because I enjoy animation in all forms. I even aspired to be an animator at one time and played with a lot of animation on my Amiga back in the day. But that dream died and never went anywhere. But my love for animation is still there. With anime, I find that they explore themes that are not usually explored in North American outside of live action movies. And even then anime explores ideas that aren't done anywhere else. Plus where else can you get things like satisfying giant robot battles except in anime? Like any entertainment form, there's a lot of crap in the anime world but there are also some interesting stories that I wouldn't get to see if I didn't watch anime.

Plus I get to bond with my teenage daughter who loves anime

As a writer I'm a fan of the Japanese style of storytelling through anime/manga/light novels etc. I also appreciate the culture enough to learn the language and study abroad. The art is usually fun to see, the voice acting is usually better. The culture is more oriented in ways more interesting (smaller market makes less pretentious star system, akihabara, op/ed have more special attention, popularity polls function differently, market is structured differently, etc). I've had more emotional experiences with anime than with any other medium besides movies. Since it's animated, it opens for limitless unique possibilities in story, just look at TRIGGER or Gainax. Anime is like a bottomless pit of differing tastes and opinions on even the small differences in how you watch a show. Despite it being a niche interest, you'll never meet an otaku with completely matched interests and methods of enjoying/participating in the fandom. Since this is Japanese culture and not American culture they can get away with things more socially acceptable over there: things are more mainstream over there like harem, ecchi, magical girl, gundam, contemporary fantasy world, etc. Music is always great. Love how a story can franchise itself into manga/game/novel adaptations, allowing it to persist an extra 5+ years. There's a multitude of other things I could rattle on about. It's a deep-seeded passion.
