v.v Considering countries like Korea and china made Counterfit americ dollors to makes US money worth less :[ i think it'd be more likely that China would take over the world.

The US is more like a country in decline. the US public schools are ranked 43 =w= isn't that lovely. If every one is stupid then there is no way the US can take over things.

There is no doubt that China is bound for superpower, but I can infer that the standing with respect to the US and China would be very much similar to US and USSR a while back. You know what happened during the arms race. In the long run, the US made great leaps on debts, but the USSR could not keep up and collapsed instead. Conclusion, its a matter of differences in government. Unless China finds a way to make the country a lot more efficient despite its commendable world standing, it might tread on the same road the USSR did.

Even if america is trying to take over the world. There still is the japanese. The japanese have stuff most americans don't. High tech gizmos and all that. I am also lead to believe (by people I know) that most of the smart people in america love anime ( meaning lawyers, doctors, military stratigists,) If the japanese decided to stop letting americas buy their technology and dub their anime I think america would stop trying to take over the world.

It's also funny how they could lose hi-tech schematics.

Wow...I have seen posts and threads with zero thought behind them before, and even zero supporting details, but this one takes the cake.

Kira14(and anyone else who feels the way he does), you don't have to like America, and I will support your freedom to even hate this country. But when you give an uninformed biased opinion based on something you heard from someone who knew a guy that thought this way...you make me ashamed that I and my fellow soldiers are defending your right to spread rampant negativity and ignorance.

I am not sure where you live, but if you happen to live in the US, and feel the way you say you do, I’ll help you pack your bags. Hell, I’ll even give you a one-way ticket to the country of your choice.

If you don’t live here, then I don’t have to defend your freedom of speech and you should stop ranting your anti-American sentiments and bask in the glory and comfort of your own countries obvious superiority.

That is my piece, I now wash my hands of this thread.

This makes no sense... How is the anime related to war???? But if ever they take off the anime, then I'll rebel.

^ personally, i wouldnt wanna migrate to america. but i guess its not America's fault that every other country is following them.

But really, its just the matter of losing its allies. If america will have a row with Japan or South Korea. that will the start of their doom.Just hope that wont happen.

Ok, I guess I will state my point now.

America doesn't have that much isolationist. Mostly, our government keep getting it's nose on other countries whenever there is trouble. America have a hell lots of money and they have incredible amount of troops. America have serious power when it comes to military because of their war super advange technology on sea, air and ground machines. And America had allied with other great countries as well. America's nationalism is high. Government believe that they have the greatest land ever. Since America is so big and powerful, they believe that no country will attack them, just like Japan did on WWII. It is normal for a country to have a great nationalism, but being extreme like Germany did will cause a war.

So whenever America lay it's nose on other countries problems, they don't have to worry about them counter-reacting. It pissed me off to see powerful people fight over for a piece of land though. What makes a powerful country are the loyalty of it's citizens, not by it's militarism control. Wars are pathetic and they bring sorrow. However, sometimes, they are needed.

You're an idiot. You many not realize it, but Japan's economy is in the shitter right now, and isn't really getting any better. Personally, I think it's because the current generation of japanese isn't as motivated as the post-war (and subsequent) generations were. The popularity of their pop culture is one of the few things they have going for them to be honest. China is beating the living shit out of them in the business world (and I suspect technology wise as well in the not too distant future). Japan's culture is really on the decline in my oppinion. Thanks to their pop culture I think they're losing their cultural identity. Their birth rate is also on the decline because people just are getting married less and less. As I mentioned before, their economy is in a slump and has been for a while. Don't be so quick to praise anythig japanese just because you like japanese pop-culture better than american pop-culture - they certainly have their fair share over there. It isn't wonderland.

Actually after reading your post again I would upgrade you to a fucking moron. Many smart people do enjoy anime, but hardly most. Military strategists? Lawyers? Doctors? What the goddamned hell have you been smoking? I think the military strategists one is the funniest - seriously, how many have you met? People who make it through all the education and hurdles recquired to get into those jobs typically don't sit around watching anime much. Do some of them watch anime on occasion? Sure. If you dig around, you might just find a few hardcore fans. I've known a gifted law student who enjoyed a little anime, but I'd hardly call him a fanboy at all. But they are an extremem minority in the grand scheme of things.

Anime is enjoyed by kids and nerds - it just so happens that a fair number of (though not all) nerds happen to pretty damned smart. But those nerds don't typically become doctors or lawyers... they get involved in science and technology. Tons of hardcore fans those fields. Well, that's if they can stop watching anime enough to graduate college. Otherwise they just end up working retail for the rest of their lives believing themselves to be misunderstood intellectuals. Oddly, had they managed to get their priorities straight then they could have actually accomplished all sorts of amazing things.

Don't fall into the trap that many elitist geeks do. They think "the reason no one else likes anime (or whatever hobby they're into) because they're not smart like me!" No, they just have different interests. As this site shows, plenty of idiots enjoy anime. And plenty of intelligent people don't care for it in the least.

America taking over the world? I highly doubt that, but hey, who knows.
It would be a stupid act though. Not like there's gonna be any success.
