    I have a few serious questions to ask about anime, and since you people seem to be fairly level headed compared to other fans I know, I'll entrust you with the following questions:

    1. How is the popularity of anime these days? Does it seem to be growing?
    It is fairly wide spread, and growing in popularity at a steady rate as more English translations of animes are released.

    2. Do these usually appeal to people of Asian descent or those who understand Japanese?
    Not necessarily.

    3. What age range do these shows appeal to?
    It depends. Some of them are aimed at young children (e.g. Dragonball series) and can end up appealing to young adults as well, and some of them are aimed at adults and end up having young children watch them anyway.

    Reason I ask are because of the submissions people sent to this page: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=anime

    Comments like "****in' sweet **** made by Japanese people (the coolest people on earth)" and "Fanboys are usually the pathetic balding white guys who wanna be japanese even though they clearly are not." as well as others on that page prompted me to ask.

    If anyone else has more answers to the questions posted, I'd like to get your view on it also. I've heard a lot about the topic but don't know too much about it.

    Its very popular these days along with RPGs, Yes it keeps growing and growing.

    2. Do these usually appeal to people of Asian descent or those who understand Japanese?
    Hell no.

    3. What age range do these shows appeal to?
    Almost every age, I've seen 65 year old men and women watch the stuff constantly. But a large portion I would thing are 15-25 year olds right now.

    I don't really like anime.
    The ones I like are only available through illegal downloads over the internet, and I don't want to waste my bandwidth on that.

    I am a matrix fan, so the AniMatriX was fun to get on dvd though. But.. I rather just see a good movie on tv serie then watch anime.

    Around 30% of my 300+ DVD collection is anime, and no, none of them are from the DragonBall Z or Gundam series, thank you very much

    I primarily collect adult-oriented standalone anime pictures, like Ninja Scroll, Ghost in the Shell, Akira, Wind named Amnesia, etc ... and yeah, this includes the Urotsukidoji series and most Pink Pineapple and Manga-18 productions (even Cool Devices!!!!)

    Right now, I am currently waiting for all Yamato special movies to be translated to DVD so that I can complete my collection (Yamato is known as "Star Blazers" to the yankee folk).

    hehe, I have 1000+ DVD's and 450 of them are anime.

    This is also not counting my 400 LD collection of just 'anime' and video tapes i've collected over the years.
