flashersmurf..lol, I feel the same about Disney, my granddaughter had a Disney Princess dvd someone gave her and I trashed it. Well, in the spirit of being green I gave it away to the goodwill. But Disney is VERBOTEN in my house.
Anyway, she has been over Disney for a long time, ..right now she is into Hetalia, I can't seem to get into that anime, but she is all about Hetalia.



I thought I was the only one who forbade all things Disney in my house. It's not too hard to do though, seeing that all my kids are boys. We once got some kiddie Disney movies from some relative Disney addicts.....I donated them to charity.



I feel so much better. It's like so anti American to not like Disney, but I am not anti American...just anti Disney. I do get a lot of flak because I don't worship at the throne of Disney. Thinking back, my sons were not into Disney either. I can remember that they were really into Transformers, Voltron, Ninja Turtles and Robotech. But having said that there are 2 Disney movies that I do really like..Bambi and Dumbo. Those are welcome in my home.

I have to admit, I liked Donny Osmond's "Be a Man" song from (the historically inaccurate ) Mulan. Growing up I always considered him a "super dork", but now that he sings Broadway stuff, I believe he's found the proper niche that suits his voice. Anyway, we kept all of Jim Henson's company related movies. We always loved them and we won't stop loving them although the company was gobbled up by the beast, Disney....That is, unless Disney "Disneyfies" it.

I remember reading an article in Protoculture Addicts ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protoculture_Addicts) way back when about how Disney had possibly "adapted" Aladdin from a Japanese Anime that had been produced 10 years prior (http://myanimelist.net/anime/3757/Sekai_Meisaku_Douwa:_Aladdin_to_Mahou_no_Lamp/pics). Granted I think there were differences but hey, what's life without conspiracy theories? Also, supposedly when Disney bought the distribution rights to Studio Ghibli in 1996, they edited some of the movies but I have not found any evidence to substantiate this. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Disney has done a great job distributing the movies (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/16/movies/miyazaki-takahata-and-studio-ghibli-at-ifc-center.html?_r=0).

I am not quite "old" physically yet, but seeing as I grew up surrounded with anime, many people my age do not appreciate the classics. I'm 18 years old and have been an anime "fan" for 15 years. It's to the point that I am not a fan, it's just who I am. I'm incredibly picky now (due to the moeshi*t that's been being overly produced to make money) but there are many recent series that I enjoy such as: Natsume Yuujinchou, Mushi-shi, Code Geass, Jigoku Shoujo, Shin Sekai Yori, K-ON! (a bit silly), and a ton others. Some series I enjoy are Hana Yori Dango, Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, Big O, FLCL, Paranoia Agent, Puni Puni Poemi, Steel Angel Kurumi, Rose of Versailles, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Madoka Magica (newer), Monster, Texhnolyze, Trigun, Haibane Renemi, Gunslinger Girls, Lupin The III, and a ton more! Recently I have been trying out Bakemonogatari and Berserk.

I'm 33 going on 13 me! I barely even look my age, let alone act it, lol! I only ever truly "adult" in life whenever it's absolutely needed or necessary, otherwise I'm a 100% big kid day in and day out!
