I believe alot of it has ta do wit the fact that, although anime and manga has come far in 10 years, these products r still not exposed enough, on a level, for anyone ta really notice. If manga and anime had the same amount of exposure, let's say, on the same level as comic books or films; we would probably have a different story. Yet I don' think that this is the only reason, america's mentallity is changin', I believe. I mean, look at Frank Miller's Sin City, or 300, or any of his other graphic novels; american perception 'bout things like comic books, graphic novels, anime, and manga is startin' ta change. There r more adults involved wit these genre these days than 10 years ago, I believe that; as far as this form of entertainment genre is concerned; american's r maturin' and the idea that "cartoons" r jus' for kids has changed. Even though watchin' somethin' like "Bugs Bunny" or "Mickey Mouse" is enjoyable and very nostalgic, they also want somethin' that's more mature and that they can interact wit on their level. But there r not enough adults who r aware of this genre 'cause it's not exposed enough. I ran inta a woman in Wal-Mart one time, who's child kept praddlin' on 'bout Naruto, but she didn' know who Naruto was. Yet when we were talkin', we had gotten on the subject of comic books and she even knew who Wolverine was. I believe that a combination of these two factors r the main reasons for why, but I do, also, believe that it will catch up and that some parents will finally become aware that some anime and manga r not for children and will get the misperception that they r and we'll go through, with this genre, what this country went through, in our history, wit movies, comic books, and now video games. I do believe that it is only a matter of time.
