qft!
I hate when people say they "know" anime and then list Naruto, bleach, Inuyasha, and *shudder* Spongebob
there is a fairly active manga/anime club at my local public library (though I don't usually go), and there is a card/comic shop that sells some manga and anime, so it's not totally unheard of in my area

Plus, it's not paid any attention to(its like, in the lowest, deepest corner of the building), but there is a mini-police hub INSIDE the Ren Cen, and like Genten said, it's one of the central locations in downtown Detroit, so it is patrolled through regularly.

And was it really 9000 people (O.o)? I thought they said it was close to 3000. Maybe that was the previous year =0\.

My country of origin, Marocco, sell some manga in few libraries, but I didn't buy any of them. Anime are also shown, dubbed in Arabic, aired on Spacetoon and MBC3 but there have a lot of children shows although I enjoy some of them, mostly japanese or korean (including Yu-Gi-Oh!, a chinese anime named Go For Speed, Spider Riders). However, Spacepower air anime attended for older audience (teens and adults) but some anime features unpleasant scenes (scantily-clad women, partial nudity) that are censored for religious reasons according to the Quran.

It's not all too big here in the general media, but I actually know quite a few people into all sorts of anime (beyond mainstream as well). I'm usually pretty surprised that people I get to know actually have these 'alternative' hobbies. But the same goes for a lot of alternative things (a lot of fantasy related things, like magic the gathering, warhammer and so on). A lot of average/regular people I know don't have any of these hobbies, but once people seem to have an open mind towards alternative hobbies, there's usually a good change they like anime/manga (all in my experience )

Lets be technically accurate here ... they were censored by people who *interpreted* Quran writings. I'd say the same thing about people who claim the Bible or any other text "commands such-and-such". Cherry-picking religious text is an art form with some.

It has taken a hit lately thanks to the K-Fever as well as several Mom and Pop Japanese Book/Hobby Stores closing for unspecified reasons. Just in the last two months, an anime hobby store and Iwase Books closed down where I live so it is really hard to buy anime magazines

Just because of religious (muslim) reasons ?

Wow...just wow.

Honestly who knows, maybe because the economy taken a hit and it wasn't feasible to support this exporting business. Either way if you were used to buying from stores then you are Straight Outta Luck

Probably the economy...

In California, it's getting popular somehow (I think)... I've been asked to show high school students some anime.

In Greece most know of Dragonball, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and Digimon. It was ok to leave it as that but then some went to explain on tv what cosply is and one of them even sang in a reality show dressed as a samurai. All that created a very bad image for anime around here.

A lot of people know anime here, there are conventions every two months ( and one freaking big each July ) and you can run in people like me more or less everywhere.

Buying manga is quite easy too, even general stores sell them.

Currently doesn't exist... nor will make an appearance any time soon. Morning cartoons for kids are replaced by by soap-operas.

There was DBZ on one channel few years back, and in their order it went from first thirty episodes of DBZ and then it continued from thirtieth episode of original DB and so on.
Someone please kill my country

Just to give people an idea here's how many people attended the Paris japan expo last year: 182 546.

The other number is this: 14 million mangas sold last year (got this number from a recent TV news report),that's a huge number when you consider that the french population is 65 million.

And yeah buying manga in Paris is quite easy,all the mainstream stuff can be found in general shops and sometimes news manga releases will be advertised (if you took the metro recently you might have noticed the Ikigami adverts )

That being said,I'm not sure the same can be said for anime,I have the impression north america gets more licences quicker,and I have quite a few friends who read mangas but don't watch anime (unless it's an anime original).

Anime is marginal here. The current trend of cheery and all too cutesy flicks just doesn't fit to finnish taste for seriousness and melancholy. Can't say I have found any such recent animes either, online or offline, so suggestions would be welcome. Mostly what's available is either old or that same-old-same-old stuff.
