yeah thats Bulma from Dragonball. like i said i only watch fighting anime's....which IMO is a natural progression from being into kung fu movies or vice versa. they sort of have a lot in common.

theres a ton of gay as shit anime's that i've seen others into or been recommended that are beyond gay...as girly as a show gets.

Dragon Ball Z was the shit. I used to sprint home to watch it because it came on right after we got out of school. I lived close enough to the school that it was faster to run, if I waited for the bus I would miss it.

my interest in Japan really only has to do w/ the females, Nissan, and several video games series. Also a couple animes (DBZ and Bleach to be specific).

Aside from that...

I've been to many anime conventions. Probably 90% of the people there are .. just your normal people that happen to enjoy anime/Japanese culture.

The other 10% are what are not-so-affectionately referred to as "weeaboos".

You can find alot of these ******s clogging up the forums of Gaia Online, hanging out in the international aisle of the supermarket, or crowding the manga section of your local bookstore. Synonym of wapanese.

cosplay gives hot girls an excuse to wear slutty clothes. i have no problem with that.

btw, they are called "otaku", (anime obsessed nerd) a some what derogatory term

I think prob 90% of American's like Japanese shit if you really wanna get technical about it. (HA! That's kind of a pun.)

But like I say for a lot of things. It's pretty ignorant to say that all of one medium is bad, in this example anime. If you try to you will find something you like.

Now just like any other medium, ANYONE who takes it to the extreme can be quite annoying. I say that for anime fans, but I also say that for sports fans and any other person who takes their fandom to an extreme level.

One of my best friends is really into anime. He tried introducing me to tons of anime in middle school and high school. When we were in college, he kept trying to get me to watch this one he was convinced I would like. I made him promise me that if I didn't like it, he would never ask me to watch anime with him again (which I didn't). My point being, I have watched a lot of various types of anime, and I did not find 1 second enjoyable. The only types of cartoons I enjoy are comedies, and Japanese comedy just does not click with me, then you put on top that the animation style itself annoys me. So I think it is possible now that I've grown enough of a bias to not like any anime (with the exception of the episode of South Park called Good Times with Weapons that makes fun of the genre).

Anime is boring and I like something of the Japanese culture, but people dressing like Anime characters is really awkward. I wouldn't say I hate them or anything, I just think it's really strange.

Yeah, it is mostly the cartoony/anime related stuff that I was thinking of. The obsession some people have with it is unreal. I understand liking something here and there.

That part of the culture is why I'm reluctant to tell people I watch anime. Discussing it online is about as far as I go with it.
