    Why is this such an interest?

    Can someone please explain to me why Anime is so damn popular and such a big thing to many people? To many, Anime is a hobby, an interest, and a stereotype, well it is not, Anime is a style of ART that Japanese use for TV shows and other forms of entertainment.

    So why do people consider themselves "Anime Fans"? Thats like saying I am an "Abstract Fan."

    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

    I mean, if one guy drew it, that would be something...but obviously there is more than one guy because there are COUNTLESS amounts of shows.

    I mean hell, Anime has it's own ****ing form of Porn...

    q=why is it so popular
    a= well obviously because people enjoy it, everyone has their own taste/opinions....but probably because there are series where you just can't wait until the next episode(like prison break, lost etc.)


    q=So why do people consider themselves "Anime Fans"? Thats like saying I am an "Abstract Fan."
    a=argh im' too tired to think of a good answer to this, but you've got to think about culture more......i like japanese culture, japanese culture=anime, therefor i like anime

    japan is one of the smartest countries in the world when it comes to technology, and they're a small country as well, i think your dad needs to do more research(lol there's flaws in this but i don't care)

    Now that I think about it, every anime fan I have ever met, except for one, were all pretty dumb.

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

    yeah, but they're not like anime fans. a lot of anime fans are like this:
    if its an anime from japan, they like it, no matter how boring i think it is. i'm not saying they should think like me but most of the time it seems that they just like it because its from japan. you understand what i'm trying to say?
    second, for some reason, anime fans get offended when you compare cartoons from here to cartoons from japan and they insist that its not a cartoon, that its anime.
    people like the simpsons, but they not considering cartoon fans and looking for every cartoon possible.

    oh yeah i can see what you mean now.......hmm my brother searches for new anime all the time, i guess it's just the style/genre, say someone enjoys metal music, when they walk into HMV they're going to go to the metal section and see if there are any new metal albums etc.

    that's the way i see it.....i guess it's just because they have free time, i'm not saying that all anime are the same, however again, usually the same style/genre
