What do you love about Japanese Anime?
With the decline of Hollywood movies and shows (for multiple reasons), I find myself getting drawn more to Japanese anime than anything. It seems like the last bastion for proper storytelling, character development and deeper themes. I always thought anime was divided into two categories: one for kids, and one for "tentacle p0rn", but after watching a couple shows I was blown away by how great these shows are (and they are for adults and I haven't encountered any "tentacle p0rn").
During the initial lockdowns, I somehow ended up watching Cowboy Bebop (love the music btw), Neon Genesis (wtf was this?) and Full Metal Alchemist, all these shows sucked me in and I couldn't believe how sophisticated the story-telling was. I definitely see myself watching more anime in the future, and less Hollywood.
Have you guys ever watched anime?
What are some of your favorites?
