Because the Japanese are absolutely obsessed with America. Wierdos.


I concur.

I also find it funny that many Americans (do not misinterpret the adjective 'many') are obsessed with the Japanese. Suffice to say.... I've heard of people over the Internet who are displeased with this obsession. Experience from being in the shittiest holes of the internet, etc.

Being from Asia, such obsession may or may not be understandable, especially from my experience of hanging around an imageboard that uses a forced anonymity feature.

i think it's because everyone knows where america is. wouldn't it ruin the mood of a scene/anime if you had to think about where guam was? you kind of lose the storyline if you concentrate on where someone's going...especially if it's not significant. ...i'd lose it anyway.^^

why not? I see what you mean though; it would be nice to see someone going to...Latin America, maybe somewhere in the EU, perhaps somewhere in Africa, Middle East, or even down under to Australia.

-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!


the topic is why characters in anime move to America not why anime comes to America
