I'm not an anime fan at all. I see people with their eyes glues to the screen, poor attempts at trying to imitate Japanese, and CosPlay(which isn't bad, but when people come to school with ninja headbands and running down the hallway with their arms straight behind them, I think it's a little too much obsession. I used to love Mobile Suit Gundam: Endless Waltz, old Dragon Ball Z, and Rurouni Kenshin. Those animes were original and bomb! The stories lately seem to be unoriginal and alterations of other animes.
I've grown very strong interest in American Comics, particularly Marvel Comics. Spider-Man's fictitious birthplace is right in my neighborhood, so I have strong pride and adoration for him. The Stark Expo that took place in the Iron-Man 2 movie was also right in my neighborhood. I could walk to those places.
