should that actualy happen 1 of two things will happen
1) if she slanders it- knowing her hypnotic (on the verge of geass) persuasion towards adults, they would destroy all anime in the country
2) if she gives it a good review- the pure otaku world will be flooded with adults who dont know shit about it

No. That would ruin Oprah's show.

No, I don't think so. I just don't find that it's a big enough deal.

I get where you guys are comin from, though. Maybe if the issue gets big enough..

Haha it would be cool though, because Oprah always gives away free stuff. If you were in the audience she'd probly pass out Love Hina dvd box sets or somethin

Spam cleared. Please keep it civil. And no, to answer the report. I don't think this or the question on point of this article is enough for a lock.

Really? I'm sure most people on CR like anime, but a lot of them are ignorant racist gay-bashing religious Nazis too. Doesn't sound very open-minded to me.

I highly doubt Oprah sees anime as anything but childish cartoons. In order to get her to talk about it, she first needs to realize its infulence on the world.

I'm surprised she hasn't. All the soccer moms have kids, and probably a good majority of the kids are into anime. It may help parents understand where their kids are coming from in a close to home, not so foreign way. "Oprah says it's okay for my son to like anime."

What interesting points...I still think if she just "introduced" it it wouldn't be so bad. But imagining a whole WORLD of anime-lovers is scary...lol. Imagine your grandmother cosplaying XP--just kiding. Anyway, I guess if she talked about it in a good way, it can't be so bad. Also, there's nothing wrong with being "fat" people (and Oprah's not even that fat). Geez--*sigh*--talk sense. And what if she invited Asian singers, e.g. Crystal Kay? (This can be another topic on its own--lol)
