I'm 20 and enjoy anmie whenver work allows. I'm in real estate and have been for 3 years. I discovered anime when i was watching adult swim.(shame on me) and through friends as well. I dig the violence, what can i say? That and the ideas are always fresh, not the same things recast with different people. I don't think america is quite receptive enough to embrace that kind of creativity, and the FCC dosen't help anything either. The only reason forms of art are coming under attack is due to america always looking for a reason to point the blame finger in a different direction. Nothing america's youth does(I included) is truly thier own fault. we are in a perpetual state of fear. Parents fear to punish thier childern and children fear rejection. If everyone would shut up, realize we are humans,
and human nature itself is flawed, we'd be much happier. Not to mention our tax dollars could go to better schooling or revitalization and not trying to keep everyone from saying the "F" word in the media thinking if it is so much muttered/ implied it will cause a mass onslaught of violence. This topic really pisses me off becuase they come after anime, stating it's misleading due to violence and sensuality in an animated form, subconciously pegging this geared toward children. Okay, last rant i swear, Parents tell little billy to get his ass outside and socialize, let him work out his angst on something rather than brooding alone. I've been on my soap box long enough, you get the picture. I'm a thinker type, so i come across dry at times.
