    I've noticed teenagers seem to use the word, whereas adults rarely do. Young men will tease a girl as kawaii ("how cuuute"), but girls use the word when discussing cute stuff with each other (I once saw a girl remarking her friend's puppy sweater was kawaii).

    Media does a great job of spreading language/slang. That includes anime, expecially since it spreads so far beyond Japan.

    nope it's not invented by just anime geeks. well i saw some real japanese siriea who used kawaii often. also it depends on the anime. have you seen ghost in the shell use kawaii or have you ever remember them saying it? if yes it's very minimal.
