    For anime.

    Why do you listen to music? It is pleasurable.


    Because God says to watch anime.

    well that depends how you look at it. can u call something like black lagoon or eflen lied or another or dance in a vampire bond cartoons?
    I personally hate it being called cartoons because it makes me think what americans(im white and living in the states) call "cartoons" ya not one adult "cartoon" with action in it originally made in America. family guy American dad etc don't count its PURE comedy. so I say this

    cartoons are for kids

    anime is for everyone

    Anime is just cartoon dramas. Just like regular drama from the US,UK, Asia, etc it has it's good and bad ones, but the really good ones are worth watching and the average ones can be entertaining at times. Plus, like video games, you can always find someone who is into them and spark up a convo based on that which is cool. I made two friends at work based on them recognizing music I was listening to from some of the shows (side note: a woman at my job randomly walked up to me and asked me if I had a 3DS not that long ago because we'd been streetpassing each other for days lol. It'd be cool if there were something like that for anime).

    Great stories, great music, great memories. That's why I like em.

    of course anime are cartoons. it's just that people associate the word "cartoon" with "for kids", but nothing in the definition of the word "cartoon" implies that they must be for kids.

    it's like how they invented the word "graphic novel", which most comic writers/artists think is a really dumb term, so that adults wouldn't have to feel bad about reading Watchmen or whatever.

    and besides, i'm always skeptical when someone tries to tell me how mature and sophisticated anime is and then they say something embarrassing about how they're in love with a character and have a figurine in an upskirt pose or some shit. there is mature anime/cartoons, but they're nowhere near as prevalent as the fandom would try to have you believe.

    edit: oh wait, this thread is in the anime section. goddamnit fluffy

    anyways, i watch anime for the same reason i play games, read comics, read books, watch films, listen to music. because something in that particular thing looks neat. it's not special, it's just another form of media.

    I think Cartoons are aways Anime but Anime is not ways a Cartoon
    This statement takes into consideration the assosiations that ppl have with the words however from pure prespetive of wht the words actually mean they are mearly there to distinguish 2 contrast ways of drawing

    Anyways with that nedless explanation and the strange debate on this post don't forget the question of the tread was Why do you Watch it

    Also pls someone recommend me an anime
    I try to be good,but then I get bored!
