Anime and manga are so global. I met a guy in Cape Town last year who was so into them. He is now the editor for LO Magazine, an internet publication based in CT.
The mag is still new, its first issue was out at the end of May 2004. I must admit that my knowledge of anime and manga is limited to Samurai X, Conan, GTO, Slam Dunk, Miyazaki Hayao’s stuff and those I watch on tv. Still, it is really amazing how people from all over can be hooked.
