I wish I could. Beats me' date=' too. It's kind of like Pokemon and Hello Kitty.[/quote']

 

When I was in Middle School, my friends all swore up and down Dragonball Z was the greatest show in history. I watched three episodes, I believe it was the main character (Goku?) facing a predominately white with purple accents aliens (Freeza?) - except in the three episodes I watched, I think they fought for like 20 seconds. The rest of it was them talking about growing more powerful, and engaging in what was ultimately a 20 or 30 minutes old west shoot out stand off. I do not understand the appeal of the show. I never have. But there must be something to it because it seems like the majority of the internet community absolutely loves it.

 

I do somewhat understand the appeal of Pokemon. I played the original Red game on my classic "big grey brick" Gameboy. It was fun, if for no other reason than it served as common ground for conversation with friends at school as we traded on the bus or at recess. But even as a child I didn't like the cartoon show. And after I got all 150 Pokemon I stopped playing - never bothered with subsequent generations of the game. My nephew plays them, apparently there are now thousands and thousands of them, he looked at me like I belonged in a nursing home when I tried to talk about my memories of the game from my childhood.

 

Hello Kitty, I assume that was entirely targeted at a different demographic than me.

Yeah, I've seen it a couple times and came to a similar conclusion. There's a lot of grunting. Not for me. The only anime show I ever liked was Full Metal Alchemist, and it was pretty strange.

Pokemon never caught on for me. I was more of sports card/comic book kind of collector and I never played the game. When I was toy playing young it was mostly GI Joes and He-Men because I'm old.

Hello Kitty was just another Japanese pop trend I lumped in for comedic effect.
