I started with anime dubs....but then I finnaly discovered the higher quality of the subs. Since those early days I have really heaped anime on my pitch-fork and picked up on the Japanese language and culture. I can only read translated mangas (yet? ^^;;) but the art style is too unique and different from what I had taught myself, so I would never bother trying to copy the typical anime art form. For me its like slandering this beautiful art form known as anime. So I'll stick to the language and culture.

Life is a game played by gods who are bored and who fight over the rules.

Manga because of a friend who forced it on me but I thank her :)
Now I know how to swear at my friends in Jap lol... And drawing the anime style came from the mangas too.

i would think i did at some point during freshman year of high school, then you just grow out of it and find it silly! i wanted to learn japanese, but instead learnt chinese, which is more useful. but i did teach myself to draw manga!

I think it started with anime for me, but it was all 4Kids crap. After that, I expanded my knowledge into the other parts of the anime world.

which led me to some strange stuff (DearS for exmaple). But, I didn't stop there!

I found manga while continue in the anime world, and now, I've gone pretty far (sor far that I own a Naruto Headband!)

I'm not a Japanese addicted, but I would say I'm pretty interested in their culture. I'm currently learning how to write in Japanese( my best friend is my sensei)and next I wanna learn how to speak in Jap. But first I have to learn how to speak better in English lol.(My native language is Portuguese)

No, not all. I watch mainly to kill time and to put up with a majority of the tripe shown on TV. I prefer to watch my DVDs during Saturday mornings.

And I got more DVDs than my relatives (minre are all anime and few movies, theirs are just ridiculously bad movies and "blockbuster" tripe)... heh XD

According to my calculations, your problem doesn't exist.

Oh, and mostly anti-celeb/anti-Hollywood/anti-commercial since 1978

It's so interessting to learn other's culture, so yeah, mostly because of Manga I know a lot of things. Being able to surprise your japanese friends on how you know their culture is also a nice thing.

By learning their culture, you can understand manga better.

Pretty much, yeah... Other things that influence this are samurai, ninjas, sushi, and martial arts. :D Still, I'm not that addicted, like jumping up at every white square with a red dot in the centre. ^^;

I don't think I became a "Japanese addict". I learned Japanese and draw manga style but, I don't consider myself addicted. I don't praise everything Japanese, but don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with their culture, in fact, I love how colorful it is.

Yup Japanese culture's really nice and I'd really love to learn anything bout them that's why I become a bit addict bout Japanese .... just a bit ^^

I looove the language and culture. But still dont want to believe there isnt a truce between my home country and Japan. Its a change from Hong Kong cantonese and hakkanese and also Irish culture. And of course, they bore me, so haveing Japanese culture to love and learn really eases things up. Letsseee... who else was stirred by music like Sayonara Solitia from Chrno Crusade? I havent heard any of that or felt like that listening to western nor chnese music...
