    いや 見えそう  見えない とこ を 楽しむんだよ
    Well almost can see yet cannot see part enjoy
    Well, the fact that I almost can see it, but yet can't, is what I enjoy about it.

    Would probably need tweaking based on the context, though... Hope this helps

    いや 見えそうで見えないとこを楽しむんだよ

    [見えそうで見えないとこを]楽しむんだよ

    [見えそうで見えないとこを] is the object for 楽しむ (enjoy)。Detailed breakdown was already mentioned by Salad.

    楽しむんだよ:
    Since Japanese omits Subject, you may wonder what it could be. Salad used "I" in "I enjoy." You can also translate it using "you" in "you can enjoy."

    To use a neutral subject instead of specifying I or you:
    1. [XXXXX] is what it makes this*(subject matter of the discussion) enjoyable.

    2. [XXXXX] makes it/this* enjoyable

    Translation Example separating this sentence into 2:
    See, you can almost see it but you can't. That is what makes it*enjoyable.

    .....................................
    An example of the context.
    2 guys are talking about an image in manga. A complains about a lack of expressive graphic contents, and b says that it is more enjoyable to use your own imagination.
