When it comes to this genre, the story is drawn out and very detailed. Of course, as the name suggests, the characters are often in search of something. The story line tends to be strong as well as character development, mostly due to the fact they are long stories. The long story can sometimes be tedious to get through and often people will pause watching the series (or reading) and move to something else for a while.

Adventures are usually a genre in which the main character must risk their lives to reach the goal. The risks can be financial, psychological, or physical. Adventure anime’s can usually cause people to have motivation to get things done. This is because the character is often being given motivation to complete the task.
