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. <hoping a group of anime-fanatics will not gang up on me> Your points have been noted...
