" i like less Anime on TV. it keeps the emo/poser otaku out of my Anime "I have to admit there is a part of me that kind of feels the same way, I kind of do like it being just something that we enjoy, just us anime folks rather than everybody getting into it just because its big now.
I believe this is right. Even the music & video stores have greatly dialed back the number of anime shows they stock these days. Like comic books went from boom to bust in the 90's, anime in North America has gone from Toonami everyday to 2 am on a Saturday morning.
" The anime boom in America sunk years ago. It's back to being a niche thing so it won't be getting as much exposure as it did during the peak of Toonami's popularity. "
" Could be worse here in the UK the only Anime you can see on TV is the stuff for kids. Everything else is DVD or if your lucky streaming over the internet via Crunchyroll or Funimation. "If you can use Hulu.com and Fancast.com (and I sure hope you can) uncut Naruto Shippuden episodes and numerous other anime are available, you can also get some anime from adultswim.com (Bleach, FMA, Cowboy Bebop ext.)
