I'm not against it or anything (I watch a hefty amount myself), but just curious as to why people watch.

Cause its intresting. Lots of stuff in it youd never find in american cartoons. The art is wonderful unlike the crap currently on tv (there hasnt been a well drawn american cartoon in years!). well thats my 2 bits

im rather picky on the stuff i watch and even more picky on the stuff i buy.
the reasons i what the anime i choose to watch are because i like the story line, art is good, the action is good, the romance is good, the intrigue is good, and or a combination of all of those reasons and then some.

There's nothing much better on TV friday nights. And some animes are great to watch. I dislike naruto, but I adore ghost in the shell and .Hack//Sign. I like it when it's not always some fighting, 'cause we usually all know who's gonna win and all...

Well, I watch it because it's fun, and it's interesting, I adore Japan and it's costumes, and it's a great way to learn about it.. ^.^

I watch them because they have interesting stories and lots of them are much more mature towards the viewer than any us cartoons that are just annoying most of the time, because well - most of them are for kids and that's the truth.
Also because there are many types and every type has lots of good titles, so you can find a good show no matter what do you feel like watching atm.
And finally because I love the japaneese drawing style and I'm strongly interested in Japan overall (just started learning the language) so I just don't have a choice but really enjoy watching anime ;)

up up and away

It's the same thing with any other form of entertainment: it's entertaining.

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

Yes! Took it right of my mouth! Entertainment! And I like cartoons. Japanese cartoons have more content than American cartoons.. and I'm just talking about plots and storylines. (although some animes are just random XD )

I guess its a hobby for me. It provides entertainment, enjoyment and it kills time.

Anime is just, brilliant. it's got nothing very little to do with the real world. Its a fun time, and has stuff in it that would never happen, even though we wish it would. It's enjoyable, it's drawn beautifully, it's FUN! it doesn't have to make sense, and thats really the best part about it.

Ahhh anime!!!

Ahhh manga!!!

Smile!! Sara loves you!!!

Because its different. I can say it uplifts my mind to watch these, because its just so beautiful. I'm sick of reality. Books and anime offer me to daze off and ignore everything.

Because it is intersting (well some of them anyways) and usually has more depth than your average TV show. Plus westernisation of everything is total garbage.

It gives me something/someone to idolise to, even though I will never get there. Idolising is fun =)

because i want to dream! escaped from myself in a world of magic, monsters, demons, heroes and so on. serious, during two years, i just worked and slept, no life outside school and homework, so i needed to think about something else. furthermore, i find music in anime really good, better than other films or whatever. i'm not against watching good films, but a good anime makes you dream.
and you?
