Anime is cool, but I've never watched any anime shows, except Dragonball Z. Is that even anime? I used to watch it when I was 6-8, but the new episodes of it just confused my little brain so I moved on. I'm interested in Naruto, but never watched it, which annoys me because none of the channels even on Sky have it.

DBZ is anime Shadow, but it's sort of Americanized anime. The good stuff is the stuff that Toonami/Cartoon Network or any of the major networks don't play...Naruto, unfortunately, is a really crappy anime, but a great manga...

The difference is that good anime is still in raw form, meaning it hasn't been dubbed by large American networks, commercialized to hell, and paraded around on television like mad. True anime is stuff that may be popular, but hasn't been molested of its artistic value by America.

My first anime was YuYu Hakasho and 3 x 3 Eyes. Then it was Inyuasha and Shohen Jump comic books, followed by some anime about a red haired swordsman in fedual japan.

Then I realized anime was stupid. Or maybe that's cause I'm black, and around here, we get out of it around 11. Then your just a freak.

Basically, anything mainstream isn't anime anymore?

The red-haired swordsman show you mentioned is probably Samurai X or its comical offshoot Rorouni Kenshin. Both are wonderful shows and thankfully the English dub for both isn't horrible. Samurai X is absolutely amazing though.

I do think I need to rephrase. What I mean by them not being anime is that they aren't 'true, raw anime', but commercialized and often overly advertised garbage. If you look at what gets on actual network TV you'll see the same basic plots repeated over and over, yet you don't see anything that suggests Japanese culture in depth, or Japanese philosophy, which in and of itself is simply amazing. So stuff that is mainstream is still anime, but if America commercializes it like it did with Pokemon and DBZ, it ceases to be a raw product.

And there's nothing wrong with loving anime. I'm 24 and I love it. I don't care if people think I'm an idiot. Some of it is awesome.

DBZ is japanese, so it can't be american unless dubbed can it?
Anyway, does no-one love bleach? It's the best anime ever, besides that its Full Metal Alchemist.

R. Kenshin. That what it was. I was going to say Macaroni Kenshin, but it sounded to off. Wait, is your girlfriend Japanese or something?
