Isn't anime legitimate enough yet so we can stop this kind of crap?

Next: Who will be the first celeb to marry a game character? Stay tuned to TMZ for the breaking wind, er, news.

Legitimate? Anime is pop culture, it always was. Anime plays where ever they get a good signal, from Egypt to Brazil. Giant robots to space opera, it's entertaining. These cartoons are part of WORLD culture.

I just get a laugh thinking of Robin Williams having a closet full of garage kits and boxes of Gundam models or shelves full of trading figures and toys.

Because you know he does.

"Anime" has been part of global pop culture since before the term was coined from the French -- the sooner folks learn to respect cartooning as an art form and stop kneeling to some idea of a Pure Anime Genre, the better.

I bet Tiger Woods likes a certain kind of anime...

That didn't make any sense. Is there a golf anime I haven't heard of?
