Should there be an american class about anime?Posted by: Lucia-Ackerman
There are so many people in american schools that watch animes such as Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Attack On Titan, Death Note, Black Butler, Vampire Knight, Sailor Moon, etc. These people live almost every spare second they have into watching this stuff, why not give them a class about it?
YES we should make this a legitimate class -- it would be fun to have students show their knowledge!
NO we should not make this a legitimate class -- it wouldn't be fun to have students even bother studying this!
TONS OF PEOPLE (ESPECIALLY AMERICANS) LOVE ANIME
Only if the class is to educate kids on THE DANGERS OF ANIME!!!11111???1
If there was an anime class the students could learn multiple lessons and concepts, as well as have fun. It would also teach some cultural concepts even if they were only watching show ( I know that isn't all they would probably do). This includes the foods eaten, festivals, and doing whats best for the community. Another reason this would make sense is that it isn't " useless" or "won't help you get a job" this depends on the job and also Anime class would help your ability to analyze an event. This is because always the main character is analyzing something whether how to win or the surroundings. This would apply to students because they would be analyzing the plot and characters.
I ran an anime club in highschool that was done in none-class time once a week and people looked forward to it. They all hugged me and called me senpai the week that I graduated. In school it is a great way to unwind, find friends you wouldn't have found otherwise, and get to feel good at something in school. But you cannot make it a daily thing and give people an education credit for it. It won't help them in the real world or contribute to them learning a skill.
I don't think even the Japanese have such a class...
Really? Go to Japan you weebs.
Anime's useless, cartoons won't help you get a job or further your education.
We don't have a class about TV shows so why anime, it has no educational value.
Just do it for freetime
are you serious?!? these cartoons melt your brain! school is about building your brain. this class is neither essential nor productive or helpful in any way.
