A few anime fans like anime primarily because they consider it to be more mature and somehow superior to western animation, thus making themselves somehow superior because they watch it. The purpose it serves in their lives is an ego boost. That's just one small subset, though, most anime fans are not like that and most realize it's all just cartoons in the end.

I'm very humble, too.
