NY's amazing! I love my city. Although it is a tad bit overpopulated.

I love my city. I love getting up for class and makin' my way to the train station. I love being harassed by bums for money and telling them im broke. I love seeing the monster rats on the tracks. I love seeing the streets filled with cars on their busy commutes.

But you know what i love the most? The stylish clothes, the pizza and the variety of areas.

Ok that phrase has popped up several times in anime, usually in public address situations. Two examples that pop to mind are TWGOK and Hayate TCB, others as well. Often enough that I'm sure it's a reference , but I don't know to what. Does anyone know?


It seemed like people were taking this to be a general thing about trips to NY, not in reference to animes, so I tweaked your topic name a little. Hope you don't mind, I thought that and the desc might make things clearer!

I'm honestly not sure where it comes from originally. I think it's because NY is one of the big, known cities around the world. Like if I was suggesting a trip to France, I'd imagine the characters saying "Hey, want to go to Paris?", or for an American cartoon, going to Japan might turn into "Hey, want to go to Tokyo?" I suppose it's a bit different for us who watch anime, since we might want to hit Akihabara specifically or something as well, but still...

I dunno guys. Kind of a native Brooklynite here. As much as I want to bail (mostly due to extreme amounts of gentrification and skyrocketing prices which are obviously connected) I'm not sure it would be easy for me to live anywhere else EXD

Ummm... Yes and no. I don't care for NYC, but I like pretty much everywhere else; however, most of my paternal family lives around Hamburg, and I'd rather not run into them. Family drama. It's a shame, though, because I want to visit Lake Eerie and Soak City again.

It always amazes me how few people do more than read the topic title before posting without even reading the content of the OP.

NYC is America's big city, like London is to the UK or Tokyo is to Japan. It's an easily recognizable place, and a huge tourist destination. So, if the topic of international travel pops up in an anime, it's understandable that NYC would be mentioned. Even moreso when you consider all the other American references in anime.
