In the parallel universe where anime doesn't exist, a new form of animation developed in South Korea in the 1970s and it's called animae. True story.

i would do other things more that i'm not really sure about, and i would also be force to put up with all the shitty shows on TV. so life without anime would be very terrible.

Probably would be more normal people around. The view of Japan from the outsiders shall be unfriendly? and off curse I would save a lot of money and time.
Literature would be more boring since there is only people that know literature by anime.

I probably would have a far more productive life. I probably would go hiking, running, and play basketball more than I do already.

Anime began as animated Manga. I am taking this Oriental Art History class right now and have found out some interesting things about manga. The first famous illustrated Japanese story was "The Tale of Genji", which was written by a woman around the year 1,000. (Did you get that? the first manga was written by a woman) although the illustrations were done by men. The story was something of a potboiler cross between a romance novel and a soap opera. Manga continued to be published, but really gained popularity during the Edo period, when they were published en mass to the public using woodblock printing. The guy who drew the most of them was Hokusai, the same guy who did "100 Views of Mt. Fuji", and that woodblock illustration I'm sure you have seen of waves crashing over boats with Mt. Fuji in the background.

The bottom line is that manga and anime are NOT some new fad. I don't think they are going away anytime soon, although the publishers might change from time to time.

Watch movies, play video games, read books.

Anime / Manga are simply a different culture's look at topics discussed pretty much everywhere. If that culture's items were inaccessible to me, then I'd just find a way to spend time with my own culture's items.

Stayed a book nerd/musician, probably would've been WAY more shy, wouldn't have as many friends, and I wouldn't have started learning Japanese. I love learning Japanese more than anime (and that's saying something) so the last one scares me.

I'd devote more time to my other hobbies. That or I'd pick up a new one.
