What Interests You In An Anime?

Published December 18, 2015 by Shay Taree

I’ve wonder what exactly gets you interested in watching an anime. Is is because the anime is quite popular, the characterization, the music, the plot, or just because it looks cool?
For me it’s either if the show is popular or the plot of the show. For example when it came to shows like Attack On Titan 

and Sword Art Online 

I had no idea what the show was about but I knew that there was a lot of talk about these shows in the anime community. 

So because of this it made me want to watch these shows and see what all the fuss was about. 

But how about all of you? What makes you want to watch an anime? Comment down below and let me know!

  • For me, it’s a combination of the premise and the art style. I tend to check out general plots and maybe an AMV/opening video if I’m interested in a show. Oddly, popularity can be off-putting for me. If I pay too much attention to hype, series can fall flat for me. If I avoid the hype a little, I can give it a slightly more fair viewing.

  • oo I can only speak really highly of Attack on Titan I wrote a review on SAO if you want to see what it is all about: https://sloaneranime.wordpress.com/2015/11/20/sword-art-online-review

    Attack on Titan is great because it avoids pretty much all the cliches, making it pretty unpredictable. The characters are also interesting complex, and develop really well. The opening gives you super powers or something- makes you feel like you can take out an giant wrestler dude. The animation is pretty breathtaking. Attack on Titan is my favorite anime so I don have quite a bit of bias- but it really is a unique and special treat.

  • For me is when the anime is talked about. I didn’t Attack on Titan but after hearing what people said good things about, I decided to watch it and I enjoyed it. I like anime for story and music. If a show has a intereting plot, I get hooked on it and eagerly wait for the new episode. Like the SAO you used, I enjoyed the music, it was either peaceful or breath-taking.
