You have a point. I admit that I'm just biased
towards anime as they are "not my cup of tea". :/

I'm not under the impression that you are telling me
what to read, so no worries ~:D ! As far as the
audience I've observed, it has really only been a
limited one -- the "oyaji" salary-men on the trains,
who probably being drained from work seek to
revitalize by flipping through anime! :T
Anyhow, if I in-/directly offended anyone out there by
stating my own preference toward anime, I apologize.
