At my old school we had (emphasis on that word) no less than three of what we less-than-affectionately called "The Anime Kids."
Now I know as much about anime as a vegetarian knows about sirloins, so forgive me if I sound like I'm blowing steam out of my you-know-what.
But anydangways, these kids were only into the martial arts for the sole purpose of becoming some kind of Dragonball Z/Kenshin hybrid superbeast. It's all they talked about, and they mimed hand movements and noises and powerup sounds from their favorite video games n stuff. It was totally bizarre, and pathetically enough these people were all between the ages of fifteen and twenty. Yikes.
Thank you sir, may I have another?!
