Japanese writers all speak English fluentlyIn fact, they can write perfect English if they want to. Most anime are filled to the brim with Gratuitous English, containing references and terms that are clearly better understood in English than in Japanese. The writers of anime use Engrish 99% of the time because it sells to Japanese fans who don't speak English and also to arrogant Western fans who expect the Japanese to speak Engrish. Engrish has become a signature export good, just like anime itself, and the Japanese keep pandering the otakus around the world with it. Errors create a false sense of superiority in customers.
All the anime-dubbing companies even 4Kids are Japanese.
Anime has taken over TV Tropes.About time somebody said it.
All characters with solid black eyes have severe AniridiaIn Anime, like in real life, most people have irises when they aren't chibi. So, those who don't must have underdeveloped irises!
Any animation produced in North America, especially in the United States, have always secretly been actually animated in Japan!Why else would American cartoons have been outsourced for so long? Americans produce basically anything in a show except for the animation itself, which is ironic, considering the word 'animation' is usually in the title of the studios and is still highly regarded as an art form. Cheaper labor? Is it because only the Japanese can draw as meticulously and carefully as you see in the best projects?! Will we rely on them to the point where NO ONE in the US drawings anything anymore??
The anime art style is completely realistic.All anime takes place several million years into the future after a major cataclysm destroys all life forms larger than a cat (basically, the extinction of dinosaurs, but with humans). Another sentient species evolves from the aye-aye, and develops a society quite similar to our own. What we think is a stylistic rendering of homo sapiens is actually a realistic rendering of humans' successors. Anime producers and mangaka are actually a society of time travellers who have seen this new species for themselves.
Alteratively, anime art is a realistic rendering of homo sapiens. All other TV shows, even Real Life, are stylistic.It was based on this article. Seriously, anime are so beautiful, they are even loved and had sex to like how we have sex with real life humans in this world, even to the extent of romance and interactive emotions. That plain cuteness and lack of free will is so arousing......
Anime, and Japan in general, is the next step of human evolutionThe next step of human evolution will be marked by: Cyber Punk (Modern Japan simply was cyberpunk), cute-but-badass Magical Girls and Action Girls, Rule of Cool, Mind Screw, and depressing-yet-philosophically relevant scenes.
Anime contains subliminal propaganda, and that is why those are so popular.The worst part: the subliminal propaganda is derived from Kabbalistic magic. The anime industry is beginning to flop (either most of them just suck or it is because Osamu Tezuka died) before the advent of Neon Genesis Evangelion. Hideaki Anno, who wants to express his depression using complex Mind Screw, put Kabbalistic mysticism into a seemingly ordinary mix of Humongous Mecha and Sentai battles. Another true part, however, is that Neon Genesis Evangelion is originally intended as a Springtime for Hitler: to deliberately flop. This way, the executives can take advantage of a loophole in Japanese tax law. However, beneath this ordinary Humongous Mecha show the Kabbalah messages finally activated and hypnotized the masses, causing Neon Genesis Evangelion to be one of the most popular anime on Earth. There is a Pokemon episode called "Electric Soldier Porygon" which is infamous for causing seizures in a substantial number of Japanese viewers. This Conspiracy Theorist troper thinks, however, that it is just a deliberate attempt to experiment with lights to induce subliminal messaging through shows inside the Animation Age Ghetto, and therefore be more suitable for children than Evangelion. (However, it is a massive failure, because it caused seizures instead of Pokemon merchandise addiction, and was never shown to the West). For now, we have Moe, philosophical dialogues and religious symbolism which would have to serve as the subliminal messaging.
The peace treaty ending WWII stipulated that all works made in Japan must have a certain number of words spoken in English in them.Hence the rampant use of Gratuitous English in Anime.
Anime is real and the animated shows are part of a conspiracy to hide that fact.Basically Tokyo is built over a huge rift in time and space where both aliens and magical villains regularly destroy the city (via very rational explanations). To prevent the whole population from going crazy, the Japanese government drugs drinking water supplies and hypnotizes the whole population- the population remembers when Godzilla destroys the city and being fought by magical girls, robots and humungous mecha- and all think they are remembering something they saw on TV instead of something that happened earlier. Deaths and damage from these battles are explained away as earthquakes and such.
The creation of Anime was also caused by Perverse Sexual Lust!That would explain the Over Nine Thousand quantities of erotic 'Hentai' from Japan (that includes Moe and Naughty Tentacles), and why Anime looks too Uncanny Valley. During the time of the Empire of Japan Anime wasn't so much popular. In fact, the Japanese instead raped massive numbers of Chinese people during WW 2. After Japan lost the war the US stripped them off their imperial military, meaning they cannot rape foreigners anymore. Meanwhile, Geishas were expensive, and the middle-class don't want to spend so much money after Japan was nuked. The solution: make idealized portrayals of foreigners and Rape 'Em!!!!
Anime is not AnimeIt's true. (As well as a Mind Screw Logic Bomb)
Japan won WWII- by defaultIt only pretended to lose so that the Westerns would stay arrogant and become willing to spend millions on both their deceptively cute cartoons and comics. And now Japan forces its secret colonies to watch cheap cartoons they make, to continuously keep the rest of the world dirt poor. Godzilla, samurai movies, most JRPGs and Hello Kitty merchandice are part of this imperialism too.
Anime was created by Cthulhu in an attempt to drive us all insaneThat explains the Naughty Tentacles and introverted Otaku, and now he's turning it Up to Eleven through endless recursions of time and other Freudian psychological horrors.....
Anime are a race of Eldritch Abominations who came here in the form of animation
There was a secret contest for anime directors- to see who can make the weirdest anime series!Seriously, what else could explain Lucky Star, The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzimiya, Mawaru Penguin Drum, Axis Power Hentalia, Fooly Cooly and blatantly random Christian symbolism...? It seems like more comedic anime series seem to get weirder and weirder over the previous years. I also think that Sayonara Zentsubou Sensei has won the contest for now...
Japan is exactly how it is depicted in anime.Tentacle monsters, buxom schoolgirls, giant robots, everything. Also, in Japan, anime is more popular than football, baseball, rock & roll, and sex combined. The tired old joke about clueless American otaku not knowing anything about the "real" Japan is just propaganda.
My Girlfriend Is The President will get the Bleached Underpants treatment and set off a series of political parody anime series.Unfortunately, My Girlfriend is the President will not be available in America until 2013 at the earliest due to campaign finance laws.
Tropers will make an anime/manga for Trope-tan.Someone had to say it.
all Anime exists on the same 'plane' of dimension- and anime artists are like Hive MindThe character designs all look similar, for the most part- see this example, and the brunt of these anime show sexual experiences like nothing else
Most anime created after the 2000's meant to enslave minds of children by mass merchandising
Naughty Tentacle jokes will be soon discreditedIt's been referenced by Family Guy and due to Family Guy, it's no longer funny.
They will make an anime series based on Vocaloid eventuallyYou just wait... (Evil Laugh)
All green haired girls wear glassesThose, that don't wear them on the screen, used contact lenses at the time.
