we have an anime society at my school. when the kids who do morning announcements say theres an anime meeting after school you can tell their on the verge of laughing. "your encouraged to come in costume *snicker*" lol i actually have a friend who is into some anime like bleach or w/e and even he says he will not stoop low enough to join an anime club.
personally, i beleive there is only 1 anime. POKEMON! lol, but really, i find all this anime stuff very uninteresting.
it's equivelent to american animators writing the simpsons and taking all the humor out of it and replacing it with horribly animated gore. imagine Homer cutting barts head off instead of choking him. then saying "you have dishonored yourself" or somethign gay like that.
