So, in line with my 'Are Comics Your Main Hobby' thread, I decided to do another poll to gauge Viner interest in anime and manga. I was quite surprised with the former thread (there's about an equal number of Viners who consider comics their main interest, and those that don't), and seeing as how there's a fair amount of anime/manga discussion in the Battles forum, I was interested to hear responses on this.
Personally, I don't really like anime or manga. Even though I'm Asian (like, I literally live in Asia - it's not just my ethnicity), I still identify more with Western entertainment as a whole, even though most of my friends read manga and watch anime. That being said, there have been a few instances of anime/manga that I do enjoy, e.g. Evangelion and Gundam, to name two.
Overall though, while I can't deny that they have some benefits (better animation, manga is more accessible due to its lack of an extended shared universe), it still doesn't really click with me. I guess Japanese storytelling/culture isn't something I really comprehend.
Note: This isn't a thread to incite flame wars about which is better. I was just curious to see how Viners felt about the topic at hand.
