For those who still don't know; Anime are the animated series/movies created in Japan. Most of these series are adapted from manga (comics made in Japan in their particular black and white artwork and which are read top to bottom, right to left). Here are top 10 reasons why you should watch Anime.
1. Gripping Story Line
Anime/Manga have some awesome plots; and the storytelling in most of the Anime is so brilliant; that it keeps you hooked till the very end of the show. These shows are addictive enough to make you watch back to back episodes and finish an entire season in a single day.
2. Amazing Characterization
The second reason why you must watch Anime is its characterization. All the characters in most of the Anime are so well defined; that you tend to fall in love with them. Infact it makes you even fall for the villains, that's the kind of impact these characters leave in the mind of the viewers. Many popular Manga also have a separate character book/guide which gives detailed information about the characters from the Manga including their zodiac signs.
As mentioned earlier, because of great artwork, amazing story line and mind blowing twists these Anime are quiet addictive. One more thing that adds to the reason why Anime are addictive is the unrevealed suspense or thrill element at the end of the episodes. They purposely end the episode at such a point that makes you desperate to watch the next episode.
4. Unique Artwork
Talking about the characters, one just cannot watch an anime and not appreciate the character design/sketch. The unique features that actually separates Anime/Manga characters from normal Cartoon/Comic is the illustration of hairs and the eyes. Apart from the characters the over all animation of the Anime is always ahead of its time.
5. Unpredictable Twists
Anime have some unpredictable twists. And that is one of the reasons why they are so addictive. The timings of these twist are so perfect that many a times even when you know what's coming; you still get surprised or shocked.
6. Unbelievable Action
One cannot simply deny that anime makers are experts of action genre. Even non anime followers would agree to it. Shows like Dragon ball series, Naruto, One piece and various others are popular even among the non followers.
7. Cuteness Overloaded
Along with bad-ass characters and some kick-ass moments, you will also get to see some really cute characters giving you many aww moments in the show. You will often see reference of Sakura (cherry blossom) season and some sweet romance between couples in most of the anime. You will literally fall for the cuteness of some characters; doesn't matter if you are a girl or a boy.
With my experience I would say no Anime is completed without some pervy scenes in it. Most of the famous Anime have atleast one character who is a pervert; like Master Roshi from Dragon ball series and Jiraya sensei from Naruto. There will often be an awkward situation that will make you blush along with the characters. Also no Anime could ever exist without atleast one character having over sized boobs. So if you like to watch a little pervy content then Anime will have the right recipe for your entertainment.
9. Diverse Genres
For starters anime does not only mean action shows like DBZ series or Naruto and Bleach. There are various genres in Anime and that too catering various sets of age groups. These genres includes but does not restrict to sci-fi, drama, horror, thriller, romance, action, sports, comedy and even adult. Yes there are even porn anime which are called Hentai and soft porn called Echhi.
10. Not Just For Kids
So next time think twice before saying 'Anime is for kids', because it has enough mature content; for even Hollywood movies like Inception and Lucy to get inspired from Anime.
