Anime beats cartoons in graphics, plot, characters, and general everything.
Because I grew up watching Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and Cowboy Bebop, so it's a big part of my life. I guess if I were to get technical about it I love how expressive it is.
I think what I enjoy most is the style. It's a lot more distinctive and leaves a lot more room for variation and characterization than the "Marvel and DC style". However, it has a lot of similarity with but much more simplicity than the "Disney style".
Furthermore, in the "Anime and Manga style", you can make characters much more expressive and get away with face faults to make some very comedic but clear expressions that don't interrupt the simplicity of the style.
That's the best that I can explain it.

I like watching anime and reading manga because I have nothing else to do plus they're fun to watch/read.
Signature Not Under Construction
I watch it cause I enjoy it, is any other reason needed.
