Studio Gibli, the long animation « Ponyo » was released at 800 cinemas in the world.

This might be the trailer…
Hum….? French???
Blood: The Last Vampire was released at 11 cinemas at least.
The reaction at the foreign major anime site ANN was like this…
« I don’t like this art style, but I would watch this. »
« This might be a great chance for Ponyo because Spirited Away was released at 719 cinemas (in US) »
« Anime film might come to my town theater!!! The last anime film here was Yu-gi-oh… »
« Anime film is always released at the west side of California. I hope they would release this on my side!!! »
«Shit. I need to drive to LA for watching Blood….. »
« What? Blood would not be released in NY!? No way »
« I like all Disney dubbed by Gibli film »
« I think Kiki’s dub was very nice. »
« Cowboy bebop film was great… I wanna see Ponyo with a big screen, too! »

Ponyo seemed to be welcomed, but they seemed not to be excited..
Well, but the work is not Gleen Lagann, so this calm reaction might be normal.
On contrary, Blood has such hot fans. It’s an enough old work, but they want to watch this at cinema…
The sense of going to cinema, theater is different from Japanese and American. For them, it’s like just stopping by etc..?
Anyway, Ponyo is expected to gather more people than Princess Mononoke. So it might be a great chance. I wish its success…

Let’s move to the main topic.
It’s about the worst anime addiction… But so many foreign otaku talked about the different from the main topic. Some said their pride as anime fan…

I sometimes dream of anime. But the character I love doesn’t appear, and the character I don’t care appear.. When Kawachi of Yakitate Japan appeared and said to me « Nanndeyanenn? », I strongly thought it’s my phrase…. I hope Rider-san would appear in my dream…

Many people said they couldn’t sleep. Even some said Insomnia…
Well, this might be addition…
I stay up for watching anime, but I always sleep when I get in a bed. So if you cannot, you are totally addicted…
Well, Japanese get used to watch many anime, but foreigners seem to start watching recently. So their mind might be confused by watching many anime in a short time…. Just an idea…. O_o

Celebrating the favorite character’s birthday lolol
Foreigners do this, too…
Also, the boy who lost friends once he started speaking Japanese… I don’t understand. What kind of situation did you have? ^^;
