Is This For Real? Famous Anime/Manga Fans

It would make my day if any of these people were reading this right now.

I looked up most of these and they all appear to be legit-- Efron, for example, mentioned enjoying a bunch of Shounen Jump manga in a Japanese interview; Robin Williams actually incorporated a scene references Evangelion in his film One-Hour Photo, and Kanye West's Japanophilia is well-documented. So I thought this blog post from Len was well worth a frontpage news post.   
 
Do note, however, that I couldn't find any sort of confirmation for a lot of them (like Leonardo DiCaprio liking Code Geass or Robert Pattinson liking Mushishi); they may just be from Japanese sources that I can't find, or they may not be true at all, so do take them with a grain of salt.
 
I'll update this post later if we can figure out the original source.

Is This For Real?




So I gotta ask...which celeb (supposedly) shares your tastes the most? For me it's probably Masi Oka or, god help me, Twilight star Robert Pattinson. Huh.

Masi Oka simply because he has Shaman King on his list! And i guess Hulk Hogan would be my number two since he as One piece and Pokemon, wow i cant believe just used hulk hogan and Pokemon in the same sentence. I so bet he runs a full team of Machop, Machoke, and Machamp!

If this turns out to be true I'll have less of a reason to hate some people... also Andrew W.K. shares my taste the most, if this is true anyway.
Nikoon Dec. 9, 2009 at 10:33 a.m.
Probably Gackt.
 
But why was this thread split off into two?
giaon Dec. 9, 2009 at 10:35 a.m.
@Niko: Len posted it as a blog post, and I upgraded it to a full post, so to speak :)

Andrew W.K. has said in interview that he loves Anime. He's a beyond huge fan of Giant Robots

@Hadez: He also did a Gundam cover album or something to that effect-- he, Gackt, and Masi Oka are kind of the obvious gimmes ;)

Many of these do not surprise me (Kanye West, Keanu Reeves and Robin Williams). Light, I mean, Zac Efron did. 
 
This explains why suddenly everybody is talking about several anime/manga adaptations.

I totally didn't know that about A.W.K. I figured on the other too also. But I can believe that about Zac Efron too. and two more odvious ones are Jason David Frank......He was the friggin Green/White/Red/Black Ranger. and James Kyson Lee

@Hadez: Haha, I had a huge crush on JDF when I was like, 11 years old. =P
Slimon Dec. 9, 2009 at 2:07 p.m.
Leonardo Decrapio shares similar tastes with mua.
CorAutMorson Dec. 9, 2009 at 3:19 p.m.
Mostly Andrew W.K. and Hayley Williams with a little bit of Zac Efron because of Outlaw Star.
