Well, this thing bothers me a lot these last months.There wasn't any related topic, so I thought about starting it.
I started watching animes on TV many years ago as all the kids did with some small exceptions.Most of the kids here stopped watching animes when they went to High School.I, for some reason didnt stop, and continued watching them at TV.Nowadays that I have kinda improved my English skills, I enjoy spending some of my time chatting in the net with other people about animes.
Lately even more people start watching animes and I feel that most of them doesn't really enjoy 'em or not even like animes at all.I'm taking about those guys who only watch Naruto/One Piece/Bleach (No offense if some of you do this) and believe that they are anime-fans.It's true that they are provoking even more people in watching animes, but I believe they watch only cause many other people do it. That's so called fashion.
I dunno if this happens at your countries, but this last year it happened a lot at Greece.I'm usually getting asked by other guys "If I watch animes", while they are talking about 1 or 2 shows, and if I answer no, they ll reply back that "I'm a noob, or I suck"
That's how I see the things.. Discuss
PS:Sorry if there are many mistakes, but I'm not really comfortable in using the English language.
