I won't judge. Besides, I've never read or seen anything to do with it, so I'm not really in a position to do so anyway.

I used to watch a lot of anime, then I took an arrow on my knee got married and my wife simply dislikes the sound of Japanese language.

They are, but I actually don't have a choice, since I have no cable TV or whatever they show them. I watch episodes my friends lend me.

But the things REALLY bad are the tranlated dubbed opening themes, except the ones SoBadThatAreGood, like that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1r_B3zqmN0

Wow, long time I don't listen this music... I used to watch Saint Seiya and I remember this opening theme at Rede Manchete. Only now I realized how horrible it is :lol:

Yes, but it's harder to find, as most Brazilians prefer the Japanese dubbing with subtitles rather than the Portuguese dubbing.

Yes, but downloading (bad) dubbeb anime - that my wife still won't have interest to watch with me - when I have a long list of movies and series and western animation and books and magazines and google reader and unilang and... I think "go out a make some exercise" would even be on top of the list, but I'm too lazy these days...

At first, knowing our dear thread starter, I took a skeptical approach to posting. Mostly cause I thought this thread was just more BS. But I'll finally post.

I've been known to dabble in some anime and manga. I haven't watched/read any in a while though. But as luck has it I'm getting a hankering for some again, so I'll post if anything strikes my fancy.

It'd help if you tell us what kind.
