    Re: Anime Taking Over Japan

    Anime Taking Over Japan? That's exaggerating it, my friend.

    Anime is big in Japan, of course, but Japan is much more than anime/manga to the eyes of every Japanese, may not be so for some people [foreigners] who only know Japan for anime.. If you think teens in Japan are crazy over anime all the time, you should pay it a visit. My older sisters display no attraction to anime at all. Like many teens in Japan, they are more into fashion and music ~!! And their jobs of course!

    Re: Anime Taking Over Japan

    I was in Japan over the summer and I didn't notice any animania really out of the ordinary. I mean, the pervs reading hentai mags on the subways is old news.

    In Japan, unless you're a kiddie, anime is not really the "hip" thing to be into, despite the fact that it remains more common there than American animation is here in the United States (also probably the reason most anime studios are broke). While manga abounds like sushi on every street corner, anime is still considered generally considered a kids novelty; if an adult in his twenties said to his peers, "I love anime!" he'd get some weird stares, and might even be branded an "otaku" (used widely in Japan in a negative sense, as opposed to the idealistic positive way we toss it around in America).

    I think what kimchi24 was thinking was what he saw in a certain manga. There is a manga called Megatokyo which makes manga seem like its the most important thing in te world

    The day anime and manga takes over the world is the day I've arrived in heaven. Who wouldn't want to live where you don't have to be ashamed to say I LOVE ANIME. Unfortunately there aren't many around my area who share my love for anime, or at least none that will admit it.
