They are created to attract the viewers, who would want to watch an anime with ugly characters? I think the creators have an idea of what the vast audience is attracted to....

Didn't you ever watch Who Framed Roger Rabbit? ?

"I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way." says Jessica Rabbit

They're not real, they're just caricatures. Our minds create the rest of the experience for us.

because they're UNREAL and they're made to be PERFECT (well, almost anyways), so as to appeal to us the audiences.

This person basically has it. No one would watch the shows if they drew everyone ugly. Think of it like Hollywood. Would you watch half of the movies you do if everyone in them looked hideous?

Well the makers of the characters probably knows very well about what we people like, and probably studied psychology in one form or another. And we people are not that different from one another. characters who act differently, with us usually spark our interests, and once a person is interested, authors, just splash in humor, cuteness, style, sex appeal, and other goodies we find fascinating and now we are hooked.

Its like drugs (although i never had any, so I'm just going by what I know), people first get you interested in it, and once you take it, you unknowingly get hooked to it from all the new or different sensation that comes out of it. I think we are usually attracted to something different. In anime we get to see characters private life and we don''t get to do that often. hearing what the character is thinking. Seeing embarrassing moments of their life and lots of other things that you want to see of other people, but you cant in real life because as far as I know no one can listen to people thoughts and watch the world in god view.

It's awesome what authors create in animes. They make everything realistic enough to relate to you with to get you into it, but then they add all sorts of things to the characters visually, psychologically, to get you hooked to it and thats why I think we like it. Not just because they look cool or cute, but because we can know soo much about them and we find them fascinating. If we can see what we see in anime in real life anime wouldn't sell, but since anime lets us experience something different and unique we just love it.

They are intended to look as appealing as possible, for the sake of pleasuring the eyes. It's what anime is for, entertainment. Though anime hair looks way too perfect, it's not impossible to have it. I have anime hair myself, naturally.
