    Hey guys;

    Was just wondering, but, out of the 4 things listed in the title, which do you probably watch the most? I ask because a lot of people will probably say Live Action because a lot of people view the rest as childish.
    Just wanna know which ones you watch and are there any you don't watch?

    Also, add more if you want. =l

    Nothing in anime has nor ever will come close to a select few live action movies (Shawshank) and a select few TV series (Dexter, House etc).

    Personally I view each in a different light, and generally speaking my standards for cartoons and anime are much lower than for live action.

    I prefer anime simply because I love the way the characters are drawn. I think that the Japanese anime style is beautiful.

    I don't watch anime because I'm not a Japanese child. Live action is obviously the best.

    I'm not Japanese and I still watch anime. Plus, not all animes are for children, there are some which are 18+ and aimed at adults.
