Right now I feel like I'm the filling in a lezer sandwich.
Anime is just awful now... not like Akira for example.
The anime you see splattered, vomited, skittered, smeared, coughed all over the likes of Youtube is - it's just weird and a bit too hyper like they're all on drugs.... The worst of it is when you get white people acting like they're Japanese anime characters.. totally creepy... they all need shouting at "You're NOT kawii you're just a dumb white british kid who needs medication!!!!!!!!!!"
''White people''? You don't actually know what your talking about then do you? Most Japanese teenagers, and adults, like to keep there skin white. If you where aiming insults to me however, My dad is Irish and my mom is not I wont tell you what that concludes :] And its an insult to call an Irish person British. Every single Anime has clips on youtube as well. I believe there is something wrong with you as you've failed to be even one bit funny =(

Anime is fine, there are lots of different sections to anime, some is just as good as akira.
There are different sub sets of anime, some are perverted, some are not, some are aimed at adults some are aimed at everyone.
Manga comes from comics.
None of the types I watch ever have perverted stuff in them, fma, bleach, studio ghibili..
The reason channel 4 stopped was popularity and cost. The shows dont come dubbed, the tv channel buying it has to dub it themselves, American tv channels often pay to have shows dubbed out of their own pocket. For how many people watch anime in the UK it wasnt worth channel 4s time, so they would have to do a deal with another channel.
British people have gotten lazy and a bit like the americans, in general they wont read a subbed film anymore. Its very niche compared to in the past where it would have been normal to know 3 or 4 people who watched subbed films or shows.
Even when they do get dubbed versions, purists complain.
its just not big enough.
Its huge in france, where they dont mind readding subs.

Have Irish people gotton lazy too?
I was gonna say, aren't they born lazy, and mothers breast feed with guiness, or put guiness in bottles?

I was watching Japanese television, its one of them TV applications you can get but you pay for this one and my favourite anime Ninchijou was on, its a comandy(cant spell the word) one and does not take its self serious, there was one part in the anime, and I was wondering, if something like this played on British TV, would the complaints sky rocket to OFcom? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqqGgSe6qfI&feature
The reasion I ask this, is because sometimes years ago, channel 4 or something would play a Dub anime, and I want to know if its things like this that made them stop? You'll know what I mean when you watch the link.
People complain about absolutely everything anyway, thats just how they are. I doubt anyone would seriously give a damn or notice though anyway because of the mentality that "Cartoons are for kids".
As to the other question, anime and manga fans in general are a minority, I don't know anyone apart from myself who would sit down and watch something like Nichijou for half an hour each week. There just isn't enough interest in it for someone like Channel 4, ITV or the BBC to screen a series like that. A movie maybe (I offen see the likes of Sprited Away on Film 4 for example) but a series, never.
There's a distinct lack of interest in animation in general though people are moving away from animated shows. Whenever I go to my parents and see what my younger sister and brother are watching its always this iCarly crap on Nickelodeon and Disney (which is a shame because they had some of the best animated series in the business with the likes of Recess, Ren & Stimpy, Rugrats and Hey Arnold) when ever I ask why the don't watch something like Adventure Time or Courage The Cowardly Dog they turn there noses and say its crap. This is why the likes of CNX and Toonami were canned, there just isn't any interest anymore and those that do still have interest just watch them online anyway.
