    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.

    Hahahahah, of course you live in an area with eccentrics. xD

    None of the anime fans were like that in my school, I was one of them, and the most we had was bringing in a manga book to read when you were left on your lonesome or in a boring class. But obviously I had school uniform, but I seriously doubt anyone would go to such extremes as that.

    I have tonnes of manga, it's quite expensive, God only knows why I would then want to buy anime. It's just something to watch when you get extremely bored over the summer or something, I'd never juggle it with school work and put MSN before it oh so easily.
    I love you, Adam.

    Back when I was in High School, there were quite a bit of Anime fanatics who were generally annoying, usually being hyperactive. I love anime myself, aswell as other cultures from Japan. But some people out there just seem to have no control over the things they love.

    Meh consulte teh wiki
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anime

    Anime (アニメ, Anime?) (pronounced [anime] listen (help·info) in Japanese, but typically pronounced /ˈænɪmeɪ/ or /ˈænɪmə/ in English) is an abbreviation of the English word "animation", originating in Japan. Although the term is used in Japan to refer to animation in general, in English usage the term most popularly refers to material originating from Japan, a subset of animation.
    Anime is traditionally hand drawn, but computer assisted techniques have become quite common in recent years. The subjects of anime represent most major genres of fiction, and anime is available in most motion-picture media (television broadcast, DVD and VHS distribution, and full length motion pictures).


    Basicly animes are cartoons
    But from Japan
    Where as there are people that will only watch them I will give any thing a try
    Its just a shame that A LOT of USA toons are just plain rubbish and are made just to sell toys where as the toys from Anime come allong if the anime is a sucsess

    *Looks at recent ones such as the Turtles remake*

    You apparently keep confusing yourself with the definition of Animation with that of Cartoons.

    Anime & Cartoons aren't the same (nor is one the other), but they are both a form of animation.

    All that quote said, was that Anime is a form of animation (which it is). It didn't translate that Anime was basically Cartoons from Japan.

    Ugh, Animation is a series of frames with pictures. Cartoons are a "form" of animation. There are many forms of animation, but the sole definition of it isn't "Cartoons"... really, I don't think I can explain it anymore simpler than that so even you can understand it.

    No, I intend to continue following the facts, rather than mixing a definition up and believing it's true.

    ok. anime and cartoons are animated the same. they draw a bunch of pictures and just put it together, ok. they don't make anime how they make cg movies like toy story and all those pixar movies.
    although, i have been seeing some in some newer shows like the latest episode of naruto shippuden.
