5 Reasons Why I Love Anime

Right off the bat, I want to set one thing straight. If you’re one of those people who thinks that ‘anime’ is just another word for ‘cartoons’ or thinks that anime are ‘childish’, then this is not the post for you. Stop reading right now, and click away to something else, because this post is going to be (yet another) fangirl session for me.

1. Japanese Culture

Maybe it’s just me, but nothing has ever quite fascinated me as much, or captured me quite as quickly and completely as the Japanese culture has. It’s language and history captivate me to be honest, so what’s not to love about anime? I’ve learnt quite a bit of Japanese just from watching the oodles of anime that I do, and I get so excited by the prospect of visiting the Land of The Rising Sun (I’m going there next summer) that I can barely sit still as I think about it.

2. The Characters

Whether it’s because they’re adorable with their big eyes and endearing hairdos or because of how relate-able some of the them (their personalities, feelings and situations) are, I absolutely and unconditionally LOVE anime characters. There are so many of them I get introduced to in each new anime I watch and they’re like my (HUGE) second family.

3. The presentation

I don’t know how the Japanese producers seem to so seamlessly pull this off, but the world of anime is so real and at the same time so not. Let me explain. The way that the most absurd and unrealistic anime (like Naruto, Sword Art Online, One Piece, Bakugon, Pokemon) where things like that would be totally impossible in the real world are presented so that you feel that you’re the unrealistic intruder in their very real world is just mind-blowing. When I watch anime, I feel so entranced in their little worlds, realistic or otherwise. The ‘real world’ fails to exist. Its that good.

4. The Otaku World

Once you become a fan of anime, you become part of a very elite group of amazingly creative and smart people. Most of these anime fans/otakus are such great people and they’re so great to have fangirling sessions and talks with. Some of the fan art my otaku friends from across the world create are just breathtaking. Like seriously, the Otaku world is an alternate reality I could live in forever with no regrets.

5. The Unending Variety

The great thing you find while hunting for anime is that there is no dearth of options. I mean seriously. Each story line, each plot is so different from its predecessor that you couldn’t possibly be bored. From comedy, romance, adventure, sports and mystery to slice-of-life, shojo, school, shonen, action, josei and parody – you have a plethora of options from which to choose. Theres probably literally an anime for every mood.

And it doesn’t just end there. There’s manga, cosplay and chibi too!

So if you’re an otaku reading this, please tell me what you think are some of the reasons you think I missed. Oh and don’t forget to send me some love!

Stay amazing!
