I'm still kinda new to anime. I watched the basic mainstream stuff in the U.S. when I was a kid(born 91); DBZ, yu yu hakusho, techni muyo! Ryo-ohki, pokemon, etc. Didn't watch any anime since end of the DBZ run on toonami. However since January I have been watching a fair amount. It started with regard watching all of the tenchi muyo! series (if you want to cry watch all the episodes of tenchi in Tokyo, hits you like a brick at the end). I then did my research about it and found out it started the harem genre. I branched out from there watching various harem anime and loved the funny situations they got themselves into. the ecchi is nice but the laughs keep me going. Maybe I keep on going since it's an easy watch. No heavy story. It's the opposite of my daily life of senior in college going for electrical engineering; heavy math, logic and programming. Maybe it's because I slightly had my own harem in middle school and I was as dumb as the MC you find in these anime ( will explain if asked, this is already too long). We already know why we watch anime (because it's awesome and different from the world). My question is why you, the community members watch the anime you watch?

@MikeCopersito , I wish you the best luck to read them in translate!
@chris98vamg the Manga is crazy good. I do my best to let multiple chapters get translated before I read them again.
Such a good anime and the manga is just wow!
@VinMcCarthy what you just said is what I plan the next time someone says why do you watch anime. it's true. For that same reason I still to fantasy, mechanical or other anime that would never be pulled off with live action film/shows.
I watch my brand of anime (which is normally dark fantasy) because of its ability to alleviate some of the tensions I accumulate dealing with reality. I especially love the amazing artistic imagery. Something that when I experienced watching my first anime immediately took hold. Let's face it, the DBZ movie sucked in part because movies still lack the technology to translate scenes as visceral, beautiful and seamless in all there epic visual effects glory, like an anime can. Then there is the plot twist. O' plot twist. Questions perfectly posed in earlier scenes, carefully hinted towards in later scenes so finely as to be planted firmly in the subconscious without detracting from the main storyline only to all make perfect sense 12, 24, or even 300 or so episodes down the line. (For my Naruto homies.) causing you to spontaneously regurgitate the first episodes holes and pieces in splendid recollection, before chewing them back down with a new view point like a golden retriever on a bad hotdog and dare I say...just as satisfied!? Then theres the complex themes which can suck you in and leave emotionally invested and empathizing with a 2d characters long drawn tears. In short, I watch anime...because anime is beautiful. It's life's stories reimagined and retold.
