    Think a bit more realistically about what an INFJ's abilities are. We are a type that prospers under adversity. Most animes are about a main character who has to get stronger to overcome great obstacles. We understand the good and evil in just about any situation. A good share of animes are about complex situations in which no one really knows who or what is good or evil and it is left to the main character to sort it out. We are natural leaders to some groups because we can absorb and understand other's feelings and perceptions. Many animes are about a leader getting a team together and helping each individual overcome their weaknesses so that the entire team can accomplish something great. Animes highlight an INFJ's abilities.

    I still like anime, and I watch too much to say what I like and what I dislike.

    I like Pokemon. The video-games, I mean. And the anime, since it's the only thing to watch on TV when I come home for lunch.

    I used to be really big into anime, enough to fill up 3 hard drives full of it and take Japanese for a year. I was introduced to anime my freshman year of college by some guys in my dorm. They were into the typical action series, like Naruto and Trigun. I liked the shows because they were fairly entertaining, and, at least for the shows that we're still being fansubbed, a lot more easily obtained, which was a major plus because I didn't have any money.

    I didn't really get into anime until one of my friends casually mentioned that a particular show called AIR was worth watching. I copied the series from him, watched it, and I was hooked. The series was a sort of supernatural drama/love story with a very... emotional ending. I cried for hours after the ending. After then, I voraciously consumed every dramatic series I could find.

    I'm not very emotional, and at that time, I thought I might be unable to really feel much emotion at all. My external world was, and still is to a degree, rather devoid of emotion, or at least any emotions I liked (I mainly just get stressed and embarrassed). Somehow, these anime series presented an accessible world to me. I could often relate to the characters, who seemed to be much more likely to be introverted than in mainstream American media. I could be emotionally involved. Whether they were light-hearted comedies or heart-wrenching tragedies, I was pretty much addicted to the emotions I got from them.

    I don't know how to fit it in with being an INTP very well though. Maybe it's a case of having a severely underdeveloped Fe.

    I don't really keep up with the whole scene anymore though. I watch an occasional series now and again, but it seems like it's gotten harder to get my fix from anime. I guess its because the originality and novelty has worn off. Plus, it's gotten harder to get episodes, since my university has clamped down on P2P and Bittorrent hard.

    It's like a highly addictive drug to me. Is it the art, the stories, what?

    I've only really seen one anime (Akira), although i really liked it a lot, i can't really get into any other anime for some reason. I enjoyed the manga a lot more than i did the movie.

    I'm going with the explanation of how the 200+ years of peaceful seclusion under the Tokugawa shogunate allowed the ruling class to devote an increasing amount of their time to the study of aesthetics. Thus, the Japanese as a people have a much more intuitive understanding of what is really beautiful and noteworthy when it comes to art, as compared with the Americans who have gone the opposite direction by deluding all of their art by using it in advertisements or producing it only as a means to profit.

    As for the addictive nature of it... I think it has to do with a combination of the artistry, music, storywriting, and careful characterization. Together, these elements serve to poignantly illucidate those parts of our lives which we do not often get to express with each other in casual conversation.

    Try as I may, my Fi wants to express my glee but when I try to express anything with Te, all I get is the obfuscated rant above. *sigh*

    Default Lets break it down.

    A season, feel free to add whatever you like.

    • Introduction- If it's a good show it will last for well over 5 episodes.
    • Filler/set up- Usually for a tournament or contest of some sort.
    • Tournament - Big baddie waiting for protagonist at the finals. We're expected to believe that the protaganist is hot shit in the preliminaries, only to be proven wrong when the main antagonist struts his stuff.
    • Tourney Drama- Secrets, love, an abnormal boost in power before the finals.
    • Finals- 10eps of people getting punched, kicked, blasted, outwitted, usually anything that can be animated into fight scene, card battle, blade battle, whatever. Usually some sort of ascended state is aquired but not always, but most of the time.
    • Conclusion - Good guy wins. Bad guy dies, changes his ways, is arrested, whatever.
