3. What do you frequently watch? How long? Animes... Depends... if there are animes with new episodes then i'll watch them all... or if it is a anime that i didn't watch at all.. then i'll go insane 2 watch all the episodes within a day or two..

10. Give your opinion on "How politics give influence to media & vice versa" They should encourage teens 2 watch animes or drama series so that they have the sense that this can help them in different views of what is it like if this were 2 happen... ( usually the genre is romance and a slice of life type of shows not like cartoons that gives a negative view)

yeah I agree with that.. people generalize anime as cartoons because its animated.. well since the image of cartoon is bad (their image is for kids and very shallow) it also affects anime... well I think thats what they call hasty generalization(?) lol.. well you know adults.. many are close minded, and the adults as of this moment are the traditional adults.. who only thinks of animated things as cartoons.. and through adults they influence some young men.. and well its in the culture so most people thinks anime is cartoon.. where in they don`t know anything about it... so I think we should let anime spread for a while first.. because we can`t do anything as of now due to the traditional thinking of people... the cartoon image thing.. but I do agree that it`ll help people if we let them watch anime.. because I myself was influenced by it.. lol

ah-ha.... thats when they are wrong... differents between a anime and a cartoon is that animes is more based on reality and realistic views as compared 2 cartoon... why... even my dad almost disapprove it... but he sits with me and watch some of the animes i watched.. he changed his views about them... and he finds it more interesting... although it is a cartoon.. it gives a sense of differents... and cartoons are not realistic things like Mickey mouse... can u find a mouse as tall as a human?... come on... well.. some animes a like vampire knights and claymore also have that non-realistic views..since vampires and immortal don't exist... but they bring meaning in every story... why even in tengen toppa gurren lagann... change my opinion about animes... so animes are the good of teens and some young adults..

9. How does it affects you? (fashion, social, thinking, money management ect) PRO & CONS
i waste a lot of money for cds, dvds, comics, magazine & gundam models. when i'm bored with those otaku stuff i'll look for cool trendy & funky clothes. but not too fashionable n not too flashy. as for my social activity, i think i'm becomeing a loner. sometimes i would just go out alone doing my fav activity like swimming, walk beside the beach, singing, dancing or shopping.

10. Give your opinion on "How politics give influence to media & vice versa"
politicians greedily wants to control media. but mass media cant help politician that's what i think. ppl power r a lot stronger than politician. although they can arrest bloggers to stop spreading rumors, but sometimes, truth will be always revealed.

1. Internet, it has everything.

2. Novels, manga, books, and lurking on forums reading discussion (if that count as reading). Spare time.

3. Anime, i rarely watch TV anymore. Normal day, 3-5 hours per week for anime. Holiday, 7-8 hours per day.

4. 3 - 8 hours per day.

5. Mystery.

6. Yes. Some Japanese words, mostly everyday conversation and some difficult english words (from watching people discussing).

7. Friends, no. Acquaintances, yes.

8. Their culture, religion, and reality. It's fun knowing something different but it's like getting a brainwash..

9. PROS, knowing there's someone that just like me makes me feel better. Also, you can get some good quotes from the forum to speak irl. CONS, nothing.

10. Don't know about other but in this country, but political party has their own newspaper here. National or local newspaper, so i don't bother to read about politic in some of the newspapers. It was made by them, obviously all of the content benefited them. And, the TV shows here is all stupid, the song is always about love, and majority of the radio channel suck ass. It will be easy to influenced, i just don't care anymore. People give influence to media? Maybe just internet, not TV or such.

1. Your fav type of media(tv, books, internet ect)
Internet. It lets me read manga and watch anime/dramas/movies for free.

2. What do you usually read? When?
Manga and novels. Whenever I feel like it, usually at night.

3. What do you frequently watch? How long?
I watch forums the most. Hours.

4. How frequent you spend time in front of computer?
When I don't go out, 8-12 hours.

5. What genre of film/drama you like most?
Comedy, romance, mystery.

6. Did you learn new language from these media? How much?
Only a few Japanese/Korean words that everyone knows.

7. How many international friends do you get? Mostly are from?
I don't really know.

8. Did you learn anything from them?
No.

9. How does it affects you? (fashion, social, thinking, money management ect) PRO & CONS
I spend less money on manga and movies. I make more friends online but talk less with friends/family in real life. I learn new things from what I read on the internet.

10. Give your opinion on "How politics give influence to media & vice versa"
I don't like how politics has become so much about advertising the candidates. Instead of paying more attention to merit, people pay more attention to what they hear or see on TV. It can be a good thing if the media accurately and unbiasedly present information, but, apparently, that's quite impossible. Ultimately, I believe the media should leave politics alone and let people think for themselves, especially in TV shows a lot of people watch. There's too much propaganda out there.

true. candidate advertising most of the time r annoying. ppl already know they just wanna look "good".
but isnt it unfortunate that politicians today try to control the media?

I agree ^_^ and another thing is this... every manga or anime (excluding some) mostly have historical back grounds... most of them contain some culture based knowledge and many things in history... some of them are these

gensoumaden saiyuuki: the story itself was the story of goku in china...
fate stay night: contains historical people such as king arthur, hercules etc.
naruto: contains some story about the kyuubi etc..
ghost hunt: teaches about the different kinds of spirit questers such as priest, monk, psychic etc.. and also about spirits itself..


and many other animes have historical bgs... and if they don`t have one they still teaches things such as values like love, hope, patience, perseverance and many many more.. where in in cartoons all you can see (mostly) are chasing each other every episode.. like tom and jerry.. and they are made really for entertainment.. some exemples again are these

naruto:teaches hope, perseverance etc..
school days: teaches reality-_- and many other things...
tengen toppa gurren laggan: teaches you confidence.. and others..

and many more.. sorry I can`t give that much exaples because I`m currently mental blocked X_X

I got nothing to say on this one Well, it's not a cons for me.

From what i know, there's only this 1-2 hours program that play anime song in one channel and it's weekly. Other than that, it's utter crap. Sometimes hearing international song is nice but their song selection is so bad. To make it worse, i don't like hearing news on the radio.
