Here is a list of the things I have learned from watching Anime. (Nothing hurtful please)

1 :In Japan you can be born with every color of hair in the rainbow, and some that don't exist there.

2: Anime characters read too much manga.

3: Anime characters believe everything in a manga, such as running to school late with bread (toast) in your mouth on your first day of school.

4: The armies of the world are useless against an alien attack, we can only depend upon high schoolers and grade schoolers.

5: The only defense against an alien invasion is to put teenagers into powerful mechs and send them off to die. Adults are too important for that.

6: Transfer students happen on a weekly basis in all schools.

7: The only people who look Japanese in anime are aliens who can't get their disguises right.

8: My eyes take up a third of my head.

9: Hair doesn't burn in explosions or fires... hell! It doesn't even move.

10: Corporations are evil! Wait, already knew that one.

11: Adults will always turn on you at the least opportune moment (OK, true in real life also).

12: If you train hard enough you can have super human powers, and still be as dumb as a brick.

13: Don't pick on the quite kid in the corner, he probably has psychic powers.

14: My eyes take up a third of my face.

15: Aliens are real, they just find us annoying or want to destroy us. (Probably true)

16: Red haired teenagers with F cups are common in all schools. And are probably either geniuses or airheads, but never average.

17: If there is a gun battle and a classmate walks up and offers you there hand saying "Wanna have some fun?", RUN LIKE HELL.

18: The arch of an anime story can be compared accurately to American cartoons using this statement: "Anime is to cartoons as Snorks are to Spirited Away.".

19: A tsundere girl is basically any american girl. (I'm american and can vouch for this).

20: Cliche's are there for a reason.

21: if it isn't a cliche, you haven't looked hard enough.

22: The fourth wall doesn't really exist. (look it up)

23: The virgin doesn't die first, the classmate with the least screen time does.

24: Genetic mutations generally indicate a super power. Like a extra toe means you can breathe under water.

25: Mythical beasts exist, they just blend in better than most New Yorkers.

26: (Serious here for a second) The Japanese people face their fears head on and live everyday to overcome them. Take Tokyo 8.0 as an example. You will never see a cartoon about a hijacked airplane in American, unless it's one where everything turns out OK in the end.

Please feel free to add to this list as I haven't even hit the tip of the iceberg yet.

1. There are hardly any obese girls in anime. In fact I only know of one, the maid Virgo in Fairy Tail...BUT she only stayed large for two episodes. Then she turned into an eye candy maid.

2. Male leads have a very bad memory. Especially in romance genre.

Also you put eyes take up a third of face(head?), twice.

Ok so there are some large girls, but the ratio is like 1000:1.

Ya, thats true. Same can be said for movies and TV though. Though they do seem to have stolen the american idea of 20 and 30 somethings playing high schoolers, or at least they look at old. Like Madoka looks friggin 14 or 15?!

27. When you die, make a long speech, and don't finish the last sentence.

28. Everyone in Japan has excellent singing voices.

29. No matter how many times you rebuild, Tokyo keeps getting destroyed in a massive fireball.

30.The martial arts expert is always defenseless against a slap from the girl who loves him.

31.When women are sent out to fight the bad guys, there's always a hunk busily watching over them, often in secret.

32. You can never have too much hair.

33. The English words in Jpop songs are put there only because they sound good, since they don't make any sense with the rest of the lyrics.

34. Anime villians have the best deaths.

35. Everyone wants to conquer Japan.

36. The cute, fuzzy creature isn't what it seems.

37. Cherry blossoms mean nostalgia.

38. Never trust a guy with shiny teeth

39. Settings and faces are self-generating.

It's a bit dated now, but here's the early version of "The Laws of Anime": http://www.abcb.com/laws/index.htm. I love the ones that say "gravity is reduced by a factor of 4" and "Everything explodes. Everything."

Don't forget if a character is from the US s/he will either be fat and balding and/or evil.

Germany 1933-1945 is the only of time for a German character to be modeled after.

When it looks like a character has died, there is a good chance that character may be back in the future.
The wind is perverted
Characters may look 2-3+ years older/younger than they actually are. ex. Tsukuyomi Komoe(A certain magical index/To aru majutsu no index)
Most of the time, character(s) never knock or try to find out if someone is changing, etc, before entering a room.
