Every anime place outside of /a/ is so weird, every anime watcher is just some patrician old man who only likes mature anime for mature people such as himself, it's horrible. The first two question are stupid though.

Escapism and having no friends, I've noticed all of my relationships are through the Internet or other artificial means. I'd rather leave this body and become part of the wired like lain but I'm not sure whether to try to live in the real world or just take the Shinkansen short cut. /blogshit

I watched TV when I was a kid and then I saw tenchi: it was something very different than what's on TV. Then I joined an anime club in highschool and watched Kare Kano; the first episode got me hooked.
/a/ has its cringy moments but it does have some good threads from time to time.

Konichiwa, OP. Hajimemashite!

I watch anime because it is only one part of my learning Japanese culture before I move there. It is best to know how people act and are expected to act in common media, neh? Nihon ha subarashii kuni desu.

I don't post about it much here, but seeing your inquisitive character I decided to break my lurking and speak. If this isn't the answer you were expecting, gomenasai. Nihonn go wo renshu suru hitsuyou ga arimasu.

Arigato gozaimasu!

Because anime has a lot of crazy shit, from comfy bubbly colourful shows to 2deep4u psychological thrillers blended with scifi and fuck huge robots. The art is incredibly diverse and I love the aesthetic a lot of the time. I love animation with even some story/substance attached and anime does it best for me.

/a/ is pretty much the place for (almost) unlimited discussion and shitposting where many have different tastes and in the very least decent experience with anime as a whole. Even the most obscure shit can be discussed for a bit and I appreciate that greatly.

It's all great fun.

On the slick i don't even like anime any more after all these years.

It's so bad I'm even watching capeshit like daredevil to entertain myself.

Only nip thing that keeps me here is manga.

Trying to learn about Japanese culture from anime is like trying to learn about American culture from a Woody Woodpecker cartoon.

I like to look at good animation, escapism, and because this medium is limitless compared to live action movies, although its potential will rarely be explored because most of anime is pandering garbage.

It's good escapism, watching cute girls doing cute things makes me forget about my shitty life for a moment.
Talking about these shows on /a/ makes me feel like I have friends.
>>
>>138914769
I grew up with it since 3-4 years old and it spiced up my life.
Got into mechfaggotry, experienced the whole chuuni teenage life, made lots of friends from it, /cgl/ cancer, etc.

Do you ask yourself why do you like your childhood house where you were raised?

>Why do you post about it on /a/?
Because I've been here for a long time?
Nowadays, most places outside of /a/ is infested with /v/-tier I like muh intelligent animu bullshit.
Either that, or some underage "a-anime is not cartoon you guys! SAO best!" circlejerk

I honest to god don't like anime, I think it's pure trash nowadays but I still watch spme stuff. /a/ also is an absolute joke now but it's at least better than other anime communities.
>>
>>138914769
>Why do you like anime?
Let's me get some listening to Japanese in while not feeling like work. Also it allows me to escape from reality and talk with my friends about it.
>What makes you like it?
The animation style, the dramatic way most anime is presented, but mainly the cute girls.
>Why do you post about it on /a/?
Because most of my real life friends I talk with anime about think I'm a pretentious dickbag and will barely talk with me about it. Only /a/ understands my love for seasonal shows and how I can't stand normie-tier bullshit.

I learn Japanese words (I'm a hafu with a pretty shit vocabulary, my dad makes fun of me for being illiterate) and get anything in the range of escapism or shit I genuinely think is good

I know you asked about anime but I'll talk about manga instead.
I find manga to be perfect for trying out new music. It's especially made out better for when the manga is actually good as well as the music, since listening/reading one will immediately make me associate it with the other.

I'm also 100% certain that the point when an instrumental track synchronizes perfectly with the manga I'm reading (as in the music fits the mood perfectly) I've had some endorphin releases in my brain.
