The obsession that Americans have for Japan; imagine that times 100. That's how obsessed they are. Ever wonder why you always here English phrases in subs? Because they are obsessed with us.

America sucks when it come to censoring everything

-sigh- it has nothing to do with obsessions. it has something to do with demand, america obviously had serious demand for such animated works from japan. and also america happens to be a big global market in which profit is guaranteed. for japanese distributors, it would be wise if they sell their products there because its pretty obvious that they can get much profit since mangas and animes sells big in the US.

your so called freedom and whatsoever had only made little impact to it. if no one in the US likes animes or manga, would jap distributors sell manga to US where they cannot get profit? i think not, it just happened that the US is rich and their manga is in demand, that's why japs would prefer selling animes and manga there first!

maybe because we (americans) are one the main consumers of anime (outside of japan) they might think including america in the anime would make it appeal to us more....kind of like flattery

I think they have a american fetish or something. But I also think that the money rate for paying jobs is better for them and so they leave to make crap loads of money and then move back when they are ready to retire. Or I could be completely wrong.

I think it's because people think America is a great country. Freedom and rights of the people are big concepts in America that not many other countries can offer. Also, English is the number one language of the world. Plus, America is one of the biggest countries and has a lot of connections with other countries.

They probably move to America because we both have similar pop culture I guess. It's hard to explain. But a friend of mine who's been to Japan told me that the kids and teens over there have that whole, "OMG! It's from America!" thing like we have with, "OMG! It's from Japan!" over here. That's probably part of it.

But I've actually seen a lot of anime where they move to France, so it's not just America.

Oh...also, the easiest response. America already has so many different races and nationalities, America just always gets more people moving to the country. It's just how America is...I guess.
