What makes anime so unique and compelling to you ?

What makes anime (in the comic, TV or cinema mediums) so unique and
compelling to you, compared to what's available and produced in live action ?

Anime has the ability to create such amazing shots (or crazy ones) with a minimal budget, so an anime does not have to have a monstrous budget to be a good anime. The stories are also much deeper and the huge eyes are so cute!!!!

I bow my head in shame and admit the "Contains Nudity" on the box of the Project A-Ko VHS many, many years ago is what first made me buy that first tape... What kept me was the engaging stories like Gunbuster, and Bubblegum Crisis, and I never laughed so hard as when I first saw Urusei Yatsura. Then I learned not all Anime has a happy ending. That is where I got totally hooked. It just seemed to me that the more serious Anime creators didn't just want to patronize the audiance, like so many American TV shows and movies, which were supposed to end on a light note. It's the characters and theor development that sets Anime apart. From A-ko getting dressed in the morning, to Reki's Acention in Haibane Renmei, it's all good.

You're ashamed of manliness? Natural selection must be rolling over in its theoretical plane.

the story/plot and the different aspects of animation they use............. also the characters, most of these characters in anime are superbly 'created' and are known throughout the world (hence people on this site all over the world) you wont find that in some hollywood film lol ! ^_^;

i like anime because its different than anything i have seen, so unique the way the characters move... its looks so simple, yet complicated... and storylines are usually good unlike cheesy bollywood and cliche hollywood.

and like Mecha mentioned... the eyes are cute (i love drawing anime eyes, especially the yugioh type )

My reason is kinda strange, but whatever. I like anime because it makes us use our imagination more, IMO. Real movies use special effects to display settings difficult to reproduce or ones that are unnatural. The problem with doing that is that they can never accurately display how they should/would look like in real life, since they always try to imitate nature. Yes, I know, we're suppose to use our imagination when it comes interpreting this special effects, but IMO they just suck the fun out since they do most of the job for you, by trying to trick our eyes until you can notice the differences. However, most anime don't try to be realistic, so settings in anime are much more flexible and attainable since we already have to terms that they're make-belief.

I probably didn't make much since, but just felt like I had to say something about the topic.

That's just scary! Excel Saga was exactly the series that I was thinking about when formulating that idea.

I rather like the perverted comedy in anime, and the japanese artist's innate inability to draw any character that looks like he or she one of their one ethnicity

I think one of the main reasons I like anime is because the Japanese culture supports the notion of "adult comics" ... I don't mean the sexually oriented stuff ... but rather the class of anime and manga with more complex storylines and concepts. In the west, comics and animation are, for the most part relegated to childrens fare and or very small niche markets pioneered by the likes of Ralph Bakshi.

Simply put, anime is mainstream in Japan, while cartoons are pigeonholed into the narrow confines of child demographics.

Once again, the overall quality of the animation (The Place Promised In Our Early Days) and the complexity of storylines as well.
