  1. Happy Birthday MeowsePad!

  2. Happy Birthday!

  3. Fair enough. I guess I was referring to when people talk about it internationally.
  4. By popular demand, I am making an introduction thread. Hello, everybody! I am MeowsePad. I have been interested in forums for well over a decade, and I have decided to join this fair community. :3 I hope to get to know many of you very well.
  5. Is there an anime character whom you'd marry if he/she were real? If so, who is it? I don't know that I've ever been enamored with an anime character enough to marry him/her, but I have heard several fans of anime claim that they would love to marry some anime characters.

  9. I feel that the only problem with anime is the community. Like others have said, people think that if they watch anime, they know about Japanese culture. I think that many anime fans think that they'll be living in anime if they travel to Japan. Anime does about as well at representing Japanese culture as cartoons in the United States do at representing the culture of the U.S. Thus, you are getting just a tiny little snippet of the culture, not an in-depth lesson on it. People who are legitimately interested in Japanese culture are okay, but those who pretend to have a keen understanding of J
