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.

 Keanu Reeves, (mega bonus points if when it says Ghost in the Shell that's including Stand Alone Complex as well as the movies) which makes sense seeing as I love sci-fi with a special little penchant for cyber punk and a more noir atmosphere (fantasy settings are pretty awesome too) and he likes to star in those kind of films. (Here's hoping he's able to do a good job as Spike Spiegel)

Mix in some Leonardo DiCaprio as well with the mech love and Akira.

Super special honourable mention to Jackson Rathbone for Beck (being BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad [Dub please the terrible engrish in subbed makes me cringe] is my #1 favorite anime I have seen to date and I don't see that changing anytime soon) 
 
Also wow @Hogan although I can kind of imagine it now. "Brother what'cha gonna do when my Rhyperior runs wild on you!" Ya that's right Hogan's going 4th generation. "I wanna be the very best like no brother ever was! To catch them is my real test to wrestle them is my cause!" 
 
Also new news article in 2006 Hogan did the handshake bow. :O

Masi Oka also is fan of Jojo's Bizarre adventure, his future form has the same battlecry as Dio Brando and the Sword he uses is similar to the Anubis Stance 
Keanu Reeves likes Berserk, he just left my black list.... 
Anyone that likes Ippo is my friend

I'm surprised to see Kino's Journey on the list.
 Robert "Cedric" Pattinson and I have more in common than I thought.
Kino's Journey is one of my favorite little-knonn anime, so I never thought I'd see it there.
I have to search for proof now...

at least somebody appreciated Monster.

@Konanda: You are totally right about Beck. It's my number one also. That's why I have to say my tastes would be closest to Rathbone as well, though I'm liking Efron's list. Props to Kanye and Williams as well.

Congratulations, you got trolled. Slowly too, as I encountered this image months ago on image boards. Just look at the vocabulary used. Animu? You only see that in certain corners of the internet, where accuracy always comes second to humor. The only absolutely true parts of this is that Zac Efron and Kanye. Zac, as mentioned, admitted to various Japanese media outlets that he liked Death Note, but that's most likely his PR people feeding him lines in order to appeal to fangirls. Outside of those two though, horseshit through and through.

@lolwut: No, there's more true than just those two. We've already discussed Robin Williams liking Eva. Also, IIRC, James Kyson Lee auditioned for Yamcha because he likes Dragonball (obviously didn't get the part).
 
Not saying the image isn't fake, just that it's not all that untrue.

If it is real.  Good for them.

I get Andrew WK and Gundam, but everything else...I don't know.
geraldtheslothon Dec. 10, 2009 at 1:17 p.m.
Well, I'll go with my hero Andrew W.K's list since he is a renown Gundam fan :)

Oh man... I'm most like Keanu Reaves.  -sigh-

@Kuma_From_Argentina: I will join the ranks of those crying "WTF, seriously?" and laughing. Poor Zelda Williams.
 
Although it's maybe not as bad as Moon Unit Zappa. Or poor Dweezil...
