    To answer your question -
    Because theres sod all on TV apart from repeats and Unreality tv
    Because they have better plots than most things on tv (appart from ones in the Dragonball, Naruto mold)
    Because most are funnier than anything the US has put out (not the UK we have monty python and funny people)
    Because most of the disney stuff out (animated wise) is just the same thing where as if you put it next to the stuff out by Studio ghibli well considerin he has not made a naff film where as disney (alladin 3 any one ?)

    My dad, a scientist, says that he was involved with a study on "Anime Fans" and his team concluded Anime fans have lower than normal IQ's
    So your sayin that scientists have nothin better to do with there time
    Mind you seein what they have been doin recently (oh look a slug can slither across a blade without cutin its self) im not surprised
    Most anime fans can speak Japanese

    Look I R USEIN MAH HEAD TO BANG A NAIL IN (Not Jimmy Nail)
    I mean hell, Anime has it's own ****ing form of Porn...
    Tis called Hentai some have better plots than most films


    And to answer your next question
    Yes I do have a social life (I do go out but not always to feed)
    Yes I do have sex with other people (both genders)
    Yes I do have real freinds (not all watch anime)
    Yes I do watch real porn (tis all dull)
    Yes I am active as a person (Sitin down all day is borin)
    No I dont live in my mums basement (she dosnt have one)
    No I dont collect the vast amount of crap that comes out with every anime/manga



    Also put into perspective the resident consoles from each country
    US - Xbox basically the same as every other games console ever made
    Jap - Wii, DS, PS3 Whoa something different(ok maybe not that last one)
    UK - Dragon 32 oh wait that was Wales

    Remember if every body thought the same the world would be dull

    I'm a fan of rap music, thats an art form. Now I dont like all rap, just as im sure not all anime fans like all anime.

    Its a genre of art. There are people who are abstract fans. Which are people who mainly like abstract art. And there are realists, etc, etc, etc.

    People like it just like they like any other kind of art form. What dont you get?

    And to they guy above, the flaw in your last answer was that you basically said that all japanese are anime fans. lol
    An Anime Fan;

    You're comma splicing a lot. You started a paragraph with and. The term is spelt 'Japanese' with a capital.

    Guess I'm to dumb to analyse and critique a small post.

    That's why I don't like scientific experiments like that, they'll never be 100% correct with it. Clearly your father and his team, only examined/studied a handful of Anime fans, and with several tests they come to a conclusion with several of the subjects sharing the same results. Thus they automatically assume that every other "Anime Fan" is generally stupid, just like the handful they picked up. I myself enjoy Anime, and I'm already showing more intelligence than your Father & his team of scientists on this subject.

    My advice: Go back to the drawing board, and try to have a more open mind with tests like that.

    Same reason one person likes Beer and a different person likes Wine.. They're both generally alcohol (to an extent for wine), but have different flavors & aftertastes. There are Beer fans out there as there are Wine fans, even though they're both just alcoholic beverages.

    It's called having preferences, if someone enjoys something.. they'll usually stick with it, and eventually identify themselves as being a "fan" of it (if they so choose to).

    Cartoons are Animated Shorts/Comic Strips, typically being comedic, like Garfield comic strips, or Looney Tunes.

    Anime is an Eastern art style.

    I don't know how someone can easily mix up the word Cartoons with general Animation., that's pretty dumb.

    Ahahah, people are influenced by TV when they were younger, and most anime fans spawned off in the 90's for one reason:

    POKEMONPOKEMONPOKEMON

    That's what got me into it.

    Personally, I think it's just an art form that's naturally branched off from manga. So, it's usually the storyline that people usually go for, even though a lot of people go for cute characters and whatnot, but I do that sometimes. D:

    I draw manga so I have an interest in the way the characters move and look, they're far more detailed than just your normal cartoon. Plus, people watch it of all ages, not just kids, because I love the dry and sarcastic humour some of them have, but look at things like Death Note as well. There's variation in the style and I like adapting my own to it.

    I don't want to go to extremes with hentai and the works, that is just euhhh by my concerns.
    I love you, Adam.

    I don't care for anime much, either.

    Perhaps it's the social classification that comes along with it. When I was in high school, all the anime fans enrolled in Japanese class, wore obscure anime outfits/accessories, brought portable DVD players to lunch so they could all embrace anime, devoted every single school project to it... I don't know why anime fans find it necessary to have to incorporate EVERY SINGLE DIMENSION OF THEIR LIFE to anime. Everyone has a hobby, but THIS one seems to take the cake for the most irritating/cult-like following. Maybe it was just my school.

    I'm not saying all anime fans are like this either, some of my friends are...and they keep it under wraps, I respect that.

    But. Seriously.
