Re: Re: Re: List the strangest ideas for anime that works!
I personally think it's funny to see Americans pigeonholed into silly stereotypes for once, seeing as how for ages American cartoons and TV shows have stereotyped people from other countries and cultures. I was raised on a steady diet of American cartoons where British people always said "jolly good show", Russian people always called each other "comrade", and Japanese people were constantly talking about honor and eating raw fish.

Alright to comment. I though that the jimmy cricket thing was just dumb. Americans don't go around singing the national atheme to their kids to send them off to sleep. That show put too many people in sterotypical caterogries *liberty cannon come on*
And the Japanese are far from the only ones to stereotype Americans. I think the stereotype of the loud, obnoxious American exists pretty much everywhere.
