Should there be an american class about Japan's culture portrayed through animePosted by: Lucia-Ackerman
HEY!!! I'm the only otaku in my family so i can't really talk to anyone in my house about this, and i've been needing to ask someone about this... Alsot this is just to give me and my friends something to do this weekend... Also please don't be mean when you post why, just say no, i am having trouble controlling my emotions and anything that is mean might make me go into some early stage of depression... Also this would be an elective, not a manditory thing... Again please don't be mean when you disagree...
Yes! (remember you would learn about the culture, not just the anime!) ^_^
No! Why the hell would we need to learn about japan's culture or even watch anime?!?! O\_/o
5 of my friends just told me they would love to vote yes but can't cause they don't want to be closely involved with this website...
I would love to see Goku do a Kamehameha but alas, Americans would rather watch football than use their imagination. I guess that is why Japanese children put our children to shame in math and science.
School is to learn, not watch Chinese Cart00ns
Anime is doo distracting, and I suppose this idea is possible, but it would be distracting to the students, and would be hard to pay attention to facts rather than film.
No. its good to learn culture but not because of or via anime. Im into anime though we can chat if you need to talk anime.
Learning Japanese culture through anime exclusively is stupid. It's like trying to learn American culture by watching a football game, learning Mexican culture by going to Taco Bell, or learning German culture by reading Mein Kampf. I'm all for a Japanese culture class, but anime is not the only aspect of Japanese culture that is worth learning about.
