I know that for myself. I enjoy watching anime because I can find basically everything I could want and then some. There are so many different types and genres and the fact that it's animated makes it ok when it's not totally "believable" because it is not meant to be. It's meant to be entertaining. Also seeing all the different styles of animation that you don't get with tv shows and movies. I lot of movies may be shot from different perspectives and different techniques used, but it's still limited in what can and has been done. Anime anything can be drawn and the imagination is the limit.

I am also the kind of guy who really appreciates good music because I believe that is essential in setting mood and drawing you into the story and characters more. Some of the best composed music has been from anime with a wide range of classical, to pop, to jazz, folklore, mystic, and rock. The fact that all these things can come together in one medium is awesome, plus who doesn't like blasting their favorite Japanese song and singing along while family and friends look on concerned about your mental well being :D

originally I started because it was a change of pace from all the bland old sitcoms and storylines that I've already seen 100 times under different names. Anime is kind of getting to that point as well, but they do manage to throw more diversity and interesting storylines in than a lot of American TV. There is just so much more originality and innovation. Where it seems innovation in America is taking survivor and instead of an island, you put them in a house...yay?

I watch all three about the same amount.

My reason is mainly because if I'm going to watch something that might turn out to a crappy rehash of other shows at least I know that I'm the one who wasted the money to watch it.
I mean I still watch stuff on tv is just kinda of few and far between.

I've always been a bookish type, but like my movies loud with a lot of explosions. (Hey, it's escapism.) TV never really did it for me; just about every show I liked got cancelled pretty quick and replaced with something crappy--the exception being Star Trek, at least until the end of DS9. Most of what passes for "comedy" these days is disgusting or borderline porn.

Anime just appeals to me more, because usually the storylines are more interesting, the characters are more interesting, and the comedy is usually damn funny. That and anime fandom is fun to be around.

Amen, Brother Varun!

Family Guy is about the worst thing I've seen on television. I think Seth McFarlane is just seeing how low he can go at this point.

I agree, but I think American Dad is worst but only by a small margin. Although I think some of the drug induced animations on they call shows on Adult Swim are far worst than FG (i.E. Morley Orel, those shows done by the guys that did Tom goes to the Mayor, 7oz mouse, SquidBillies, ATHF (season 3 to current), Super Jail, butt Mcgee).
The only good current orignal programs on AS really are Venture Bros., Metalacoplyse and Robot Chicken. Only because there is enough of a underlying pop culture and inside jokes in them to not make it seem that my intellenge is being insulted.


Then again, I wonder how Catdog ever got made too. But that's a completely different rant in it's self.

I stick with just about anything that has a good story and cool characters. Sadly, when you find a show like that on TV it gets cancelled *Cough*Firefly*cough*

What surprised me about anime was depiction of the deep psychological aspects of the human nature.
People make the mistake of writing it off as perverted entertainment with very bad humor. I see that to the contrary. Some are just saturated with metaphors and incredible imagery, the kind you find in good, fascinating books.

Not to mention the beautiful art style.

That alone keeps me hooked.

I think seeing all the art styles is also a big plus for me. There are many different ways to depict a character and give that certain feel that makes them uniquely themselves as opposed to tv or live-action in which the characters are in make-up and the creativity is still there, but it's limited to the materials that the people are working with. You can draw anything, giant robots just happen to a norm of a lot of good drama shows aka Gundam Wing
The only things I regret are the things I am ashamed of.

Being a big fan of science-fiction, I've found that you can currently find really good (new) science-fiction only on television and in books. And on TV, there aren't too many pure sci-fi shows on right now that appeal to me. For the record, those that do include Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. So, anime helps fill the void with Gurren Lagann. And anime is pretty much the only artform that showcases ninjas and samurai, which is partly why I watch Naruto and watched Samurai Champloo.

After years and years of watching highly repetitive American TV, I needed a change and found it in anime. Granted, there are some anime too that get highly repetitive (like Naruto, Bleach, and DBZ) however I avoid shows like that for a reason. As for shows like Family Guy, there's nothing worse than that garbage to me. I mean come on, without the Simpsons it wouldn't have existed. I'm tired of the same old"stupid/fat husband" "pretty/smart wife" "outcast daughter" "evil son who tries to follow in father's footsteps" and the "family baby" set up. All Family Guy has is flashbacks and crude humor which mildly sets it apart from the Simpsons.

Don't get me wrong though, anime can have nothing but the same genre too. Such as magical girl (Mai Hime, Mai Otome, Card Captor Sakura, Tsubasa Chronicles, Sailor Moon and so on, the list never seems to end), and don't forget magical boy too, such as (Naruto, FMA, DBZ, and Bleach.) There's also the never endless high school genre. Anime can get just as generic in that sense as American TV does.

There's also the never endless high school genre. Anime can get just as generic in that sense as American TV does.


I can't think of an anime that nauseates me like Family Guy does, though. Sure, there's plenty of anime with juvenile humor and toilet jokes (Exhibit A: Golden Boy), but it's done to entertain, not to offend. I can't think of an anime that went out of its way to offend people and go for shock value rather than humor, unless it's hentai, and that's an entirely different story. FLCL and Excel Saga were bizarre and weird--for me, anyway--but I never felt like I wanted to throw something at the TV.

The thing is, I actually used to like Family Guy at first. I never got into the Simpsons (Homer's stupidity stopped being funny pretty quick, and Bart I just wanted to beat with a fan belt), but I really enjoyed the pop culture references and flashbacks to the 80s that Family Guy had. "Red Dawn the Musical" was pretty damn funny, as were the Star Wars refs. I could even overlook the occasional gross-out, and I figured if my military friends could laugh at the "Stewie and Brian Join the Army and Go to Iraq" episode, then I could too.

Where they lost me was their rapidly increasing cheap shots at Christianity. I'm sorry, but I think someone's religion is off limits to jokes. I'm not going to petition Fox to take Family Guy off the air for it--the producers have First Amendment rights, and I have the right to turn the channel--but it still torques me off. And that seems to be a common thing in movies and TV shows these days; Christians are always shown as idiots, fanatics, and/or hypocrites. ("Moral Orel" lasted on my screen for about three seconds when I ran across it on YouTube.) It's not ha-ha funny, but malicious humor, like a bully making fun of you.

Anime doesn't have that. Yeah, they've taken their cheap shots on occasion, but they're very rare, and if it bothers me when Sister Rosette shakes her butt at Chrono and says "We're in Sin City; let's sin a little!" they more than make up for it in the series later, when her faith is the only thing that saves them. Rosette may be a bit hot-blooded and she becomes a fanservice victim on occasion (in the manga, at least), but it's done for humor and not to be mean or dump on Christianity. Unless I've missed something in the anime or the manga, Rosette never violates her vow of chastity, though it's clear that she and Chrono deeply love each other. Rurouni Kenshin had a Christian fanatic in their "Son of God" story arc, but the producers also took care to show that the faux-Messiah didn't represent mainstream Christianity, but a cult that had sprung up under the oppression of the Tokugawa shogunate. (It helped that such cults actually did exist in the time period that Kenshin takes place in.)

So yeah, that's why I despise Family Guy, among other reasons.

*Fixes it to never ending* *How did I end up typing 'Evil son?* Guess I wasn't focusing for half of that post.

Actually, for the most part (no offense intended) almost all the Christians I have ever run across are fanatics and hypocrites, so anything like that is a fair portrayal to me, no matter the show. This is coming from someone who lives around them and spent a whole year at a Catholic school that was absolutely fanatical and insane. Occasionally I do run into very kind and low key Christian people, but the rest of the time the ones around me are brought up in questionable conditions and act upon it in inappropriate times, and think it's the worst thing ever if you don't believe what they do. But, that's just me on a totally different topic and speaking from personal experience. A lot of the time on TV, it portrays the people who live around me quite perfectly. I used to like Family Guy too before I realized how pointless it was to me, and South Park's "Cartoon Wars" episodes totally got through my head. Ever since I saw it I've been turning Family Guy off when it's showing on the T.V.

I watch Anime for the art and for the storylines. I think anime style art is beautiful. Sure the animation itself can be a little crappy, but I like how they draw their characters. They seemed more life-like... more human than most cartoons on American television. They were more well-rounded characters and not everything was black and white.


As for the Family Guy discussion, I like it to some degree, but not enough to watch it regularly or buy anything of it. If anything, I like it because it's helping my dad laugh once and awhile, and if you ever met my dad, you'd agree that Family Guy is actually doing someone some good.

As for the religion thing, as an Agnostic, I don't mind cartoons poking at religion, and South Park is more notorious for that than any other cartoon(imo), but they don't just poke at one religion, they poke at them all. And they have a writer(or a friend that helps... something, I don't remember) that is a Christian, and got offended at one of their Christian-poking episodes, but didn't get angry at the Scientology or the Mohammad episode... and it was vice versa for Isaac Hayes, who quit South Park over them poking Scientology...

To Trey & Matt, they think if you can poke at one religion, you should be able to poke at them all... since all religion, no matter what they think of them, should be considered equal.


And yeah... sorry I got off topic. lolol~

That's kewl, CherryWolf. That's something else that annoyed me about Family Guy. I don't think anyone's religion should be mocked, but FG won't touch Islam because they're scared. Christians aren't in the habit of killing cartoonists, so FG can take cheap shots with impunity, knowing there will be no retaliation other than a strongly-worded (and ignored) letter. Like I said--they're bullies. (I am not saying that Christians should threaten the producers of Family Guy. They have a right in this country to produce that stuff, just like I have a right not to watch it.)

Sorry you've had a tough time with Christians and especially Catholics, Lucky. For what it's worth, I've got nothing against you.

Perhaps it's because anime is different from most live action TV shows (At least American) in the fact that the characters are more realistic and go through change. People grow up, learn, and die in a continuing story unlike many TV shows where it's almost a new story every episode. Besides, American media is so prude about what to show on TV that it kills creativity.
