    anime in america

    so i'm watching tv, and i see a commercial for a drink called absolut vodka.... in the commercial it shows a scene from akira and says "absolute anime" then i started thinking "in what other ways is anime starting to pop up in american (or even "european") culture?" (not including american or "european" anime)
    one of the ways is the the fact that hailey joel osment, an actor in hollywood, was doing voicework not only for IGPX (which, in my opinion, is japanese, because only the storyline was written in america) but also for kingdom hearts too.

    Wish I had seen that, Akira is indeed a classic anime to use.

    In French-speaking Europe I believe there are much less things like that happening, and also there is almost no censorship, if not at all (of course it may be that some animes/mangas are not published over here but I haven't heard about that), I mean in our mindset we just don't understand how there could be a censure neither.

    Anime is everywhere, several channels over here, which had primarily no relation to anime (such as music-only channels, national TV channels) have started showing Anime (however in some channels they show them mostly in the mornings, which still makes me believe they think it's only for children...).

    I can't wait to find time (I'm a Sociology student) to make a sociological study of the image anime has
