I think you're right, Al, about it being an acquired taste. Anime didn't really hit our country until well after I was above the cartoon age (at least kid's cartoons) which is where I'm guessing most people get their initial dose these days. I still watch a lot of cartoons, but mostly "adult" ones with humor in them, like Family Guy or The Simpsons.

The Street Fighter video was a good example. I've played Street Fighter a couple of times and I had absolutely no idea what was going on, except I think someone deflected some kind of super attack and returned the favor, or something, right?

Didn't know Avatar wasn't anime, though it might explain why I liked it. Smiley: lol

Anyway, about the dB comment, it probably has to do with my origin. Our language is fairly flat and even when people get upset, they sound bored. The voices in anime seem to alternate between almost whispers to very high notes and it switches mid-sentence sometimes. Guess I should sub it and run with a lower volume setting.

Where the **** are you from? Smiley: lol

EDIT: You just added the posting location to your profile. Nevermind... And if it was already there, I swore I checked the 'posting from' note several times in your last post to figure out why in "your language" it seemed so odd.

This Streetfighter video may look somewhat impressive knowing nothing about SF, but it becomes even more impressive when you understand the mechanics of the game.
God, no matter how many times I watch that clip, I get amped every single time. So f*cking crazy.

I've had that posting location for the last, uh, two years or so. Smiley: um
