I can't get over how stupid the 'art' in anime is. At least for me.... it lacks any originality. Like really... it's all the same.. soo where's the point besides a different story line. Not to mention it's just not the kind of illustration that would fit into my box of aesthetics. Not to mention I think Japanese culture or whatever is way overrated. -shrugs- So I could never get into an actual book. Woe is me. I'll stick with COMICS. kthx.
