    The BIGGEST problem with anime in this country is way get the worst of the worst, Pokemon, Dragonball, etc. While truly excellent anime like Grave of the Fireflies, Barefoot Gen, or anything else with a real plot is avoided like the plague.


    so what network would be able to replace pokemon and dragonball z with Grave of the Fireflies or Barefoot Gen?

      Why hate anime? does everyone prefer american animation?

      Watch "Akira", "Ghost in The Shell", Hayao Miyzaki's films, or some other good anime movies.

        Ghost in the Shell the series was ok and I liked Spirted Away, but most of it I can't get into. The more comedic stuff is just too weird or obscrure for me and the more serious stuff is poorly written and is nothing more than graphically appealing garbage. Though I admit also that some American cartoons are like that, especially now as they try to appeal to the anime fans out there.

          Calling Dragon Ball a bad anime is blasphemy.

                            I like anime series that some people never heard of either. The stuff I watch don't even air here, for the most part. A series I'm currently watching is Kuroshitsuji.

                              Same here. Right now I'm watching Tiger Mask, Ghost Sweeper, and UFO Robo Grendizer.

                                Probably none would have the guts to try anything bold enough to air anime with plot that doesn't involve cyborgs, robots, or magic.

                                  Try out DeathNote. It doesn't have any of that goofy sh*t that doesn't translate well.

                                    I like Deathnote, but it won't turn any anime haters. Come to think of it I don't think anything will... maybe some of the porn.

                                        Hell if I can find something decent, maybe I'll reconsider. Deathnote to me seems like a B-movie spread out and extended over a series.

                                        and trust me, animated porn and hetnai doesn't do much for me and if anything I'd think it'd be more attractive to you anime lovers.

                                          I liked Deathnote, although, granted, I was reading it before I started watching it and its animated series wasn't dubbed yet either. The manga/anime is very close. No filler or anything since by the time the animated series started in Japan, the manga was already finished.

                                          Gemini Guy: Just because someone likes anime doesn't make the person an automatic anime lover. For me, I prefer manga to anime, but, I still watch some if someone points out a series to me and say, "You might like this." If I find a series interesting (and this goes for any medium, and not limited to anime), I'll watch it or read it.

                                          A true "lover" is the type that feels that any and all is entertaining and good for the sake of its just being anime. I don't get the fascination of hentai, then again, I don't get the fascination with porn either. Probably stereotyping a little, but I guess I'm a stereotypical female in this regard that's disgusted by it.

                                          I don't know why people just assume this anyway. I like to watch Super Nanny on occasion, that doesn't mean that I like every single solitary reality show program on television. As a matter of fact, I dislike a big majority of it.
