 “I am certainly into anime and it is interesting because it is very funny. It is very interesting because of what the characters might say, do, and the funny things that they think about. The little details make the certain anime interesting which helps it be enjoyable. It brings up the spirit and so it makes it fun. One main thing that makes anime entertaining is that it is very funny in many ways. There may be some fictionally things that goes on but sometimes it can actually happen in real life. I can sometimes relate to the situations made by the characters in the anime.”

“The most surprising thing about the evolution of anime was it is more interesting to watch and how the art style in my opinion is better like how the animation and the drawings looks cleaner and cooler to watch. I liked the style in the change of it. It improved a lot. My favorite genres of anime include comedy, action, adventurous, and fantasy because whenever I’m watching anime, it becomes entertaining.  It is entertaining because it is fun to watch something that you are interested. It will make you want to watch it more and more. “

D’nei Albergotti who is a teacher at Adventure Stem was also someone who shared her perspective on anime. 

“I’m definitely interested in anime. Even though anime is in a cartoon form, the quality development is higher than expected. It is very entertaining in a diverse way of thinking about the certain actions that are being made. Anime is very exciting because there would always be those moments where you would be ready to just ‘jump off our chair’ and be captured by the moment.”

“I personally dislike the level of drama in some animes. It is the quality development, the eye catching stories are in-depth meaning like it is very neat and has great detail. I love to see the characters go into action, like being ready to start a fighting scene. And that is what makes it very entertaining. Anime has a variety of different plots like some are drama, quests, rivalry, revenge, adventure and many more but not all are as interested as others. The graphics improved from before.” 

“Anything that has fighting, gushing blood, gory, and lots of strong intense fighting. Sometimes, I am interested in Genres that include magic because, I find it cool. I am not necessarily into romance, other than that I like intense fighting, blood, gory stuff, and mythological things and events.”

Anime is stretched back about 100 years ago and is still popular. You may dislike certain animes and enjoy other ones, but at least you can find the fun in watching and drawing interesting anime.
