Jaza, I just meant that works like DBZ are Americanized--i.e. turned into commercial enterprises while the artistic value is lost.

I've never seen Bleach but I really want to .

No, my GF isn't Japanese, otherwise she'd likely love anime if she were from Japan . No, she comes from a magical place where the hills are green and bridges fall down. Obscure nursery rhyme references are wonderful .

Everyone asks me if my username is from some anime called Bleach or something, and then I was aked if it was from Tokyo Mew Mew....
But I really just like strawberries.

Do I love anime!

I MAKE IT!

I don't go to conventions though. And I really don't like dressing up in clothers other than my usualy black denim jacket, black shirt and black pants...(no, I'm not emo...)

HAHAHA!!! I never thought this discusion would come up!!! Anime is one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to writing. However, I'm not one of those diehard fans that dress in costumes and go to conventions. My favorite one are: Inuyasha, Naruto, Yu Yu Hakusho, Evangelion, R. Kenshin, Trinity Blood, Big O, Full Metal Alchemist, Death Note, Get Backers, Ghost in the Shell, Tenchi, OutLaw Star, Gundam Wing, Bleach, and about 7 more that I don't feel like naming. But all the one's I've listed above are either ones that I've completely watched(along with movies) or ones that I've kept up to date with.^_^

OMG! Death Note! They premiered the live-action version at FanimeCon this year and there was a massive line. I got to see both movies for it! Which is crazy because some 10,000 people didn't! And it was wicked awesome. I had never heard of it until I went there. I'm having a lot of problems keeping up with all the new big things in Japan. I don't have an anime group or anything to go to here in SC .

Ghost in the Shell = absolutely awesome movie.
Tenchi Muyo: how could I forget this one? This is an example of a show that used to be on Cartoon Network before CN and the other networks started turning into commercialized garbage channels. Yes CN used to play good anime!
Get Backers: Another I really like!
Outlaw Star: Never got into it, but then I never watched it because I was always in class when it was on.

Did anyone here like Cowboy Bebop before the U.S. destroyed it? I love that show, brilliant writing.

I'm rambling!

I've never dressed up, but I've always wanted to go as something that isn't really anime. Just something fun. But I've never wanted to do it as something serious, just something to goof off about with my friends. It would be neat to get my friends together and all dress up as characters from the same show. It would have been cool if my friend and I went as Mario and Luigi and then my brother went as Wario or something!

Cowboy Bebop was also another one of my favorites. One of my favorite characters was ED, the hacker genius. She was hilarious!!

I'm more into reading manga now....but I have seen quite a bit of anime. I like physchological or humor stuff...also gore. =3 But it has to have an interesting plot and characters...and a point. Symbolism in anime and manga also makes me happy. Three cheers for Evangelion and Ergo Proxy.
