I like this idea.

You were talking like you can't take the dubs from Hero TV seriously.

Anime in Perth? Lol.

We don't even have a single 7-11.

And there's only 1 donut franchise here and it only sells plain, unfilled cinnamon donuts and hot dogs.

Our largest mall is 2 stories high.

And your average lunch costs US$12. And is rubbish.

Wtf.

EDIT: ANY1 WANNA COM TO PERTH LOL
EDIT 2: 1 anime store, I don't know if they're making much money either. No cons. Or maybe 1 small con once a year, I forget.

Sorry to Necro this...but where I lived, it is official. Japanese Culture along with anime is pretty much dead. The last Japanese Bookstore is closing on the 23 and with that comes the final nail on the Japanese Culture Coffin and the complete dominance of the Korean Wave here in Vancouver.

Anime in the Philippines are limited to those only being aired on TV (many are so old as of 90s) over and over again. Series are often cut short for advertisement, nearly mutilating an episode so some turn to pirated Dvds and the internet for dose of anime.

Honestly. I was lucky to get access to the internet and get updated every three days. Proud to say, I know more anime than any classmate of mine knew.

^ Despite that, anime is very popular around here.

Most are casual watchers, but that's fine.

Eh? What did they do with all the Japanese people who live there? Did they stop doing the festivals? No one sells manga at all? There's no more sushi bars or restaurants? I know fads can sweep and dominate but you're describing a pretty extreme situation.

Genji-chan: Local airing TV is trying to be updated as much. I think Dinosaur King, as is Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds, is recent anime as well compared to Sailormoon (which is actually re-dubbed) and others which are shown nowadays.

And HERO TV is surprisingly updated with their premieres of Hanasaku Iroha, Shiki and Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori.

But Koreans are the 2nd biggest consumer of Japanese animation, manga, light novel, and games next only to Japanese themselves. Even if Chinese as whole might have overtaken Koreans with their sheer number, Koreans still are very far ahead of Chinese in probability of being an anime or manga fan.

Welcome to the Hallyu phenomenon, and here it even has its own cable TV channel called TVn... but thank goodness, there's RED Channel (next best thing since WOWOW) to offset the wave.

Local TV, as always, has a tendency to concentrate on the lowest common denominator: live-action drama earns much more for the stations. Often anime is treated more as a convenient cut-up replayable filler, to make way for such shows.

As for Hero TV, although I'm happy they've selected titles that otherwise couldn't be shown elsewhere in SEA (the best I've seen was Utena at full throttle), I'm a bit worried about where it's heading to because of sketchy management, scheduling delays and acquisition of titles (unlike its more successful brethren, especially MYX, and its erstwhile global rival AnimAXE).

@Ontopic: if there's anything else about the scene, most of us Filipino fans are largely casual viewers hooked to very popular franchises but rarely buy the merchandise; we go mostly online in computer shops to get our daily fix (again, no thanks to the broadcasters' LCD tendencies).

Local cosplay is sometimes marred by infighting and/or mudslinging (no frigging thanks to the so-called "crab mentality"), and is in threat of being turned into a beauty pageant rather than a genuine get-together sans the politics, elitism and the nitpicking.

Here, I treat anime, manga and j-pop as samizdat, because the household are full of Americanized denizens (they watch US TV like crazy, rarely watching local -- Tagalog -- programming) who look at my interests as being "childish".

All the people I know who watch anime just watch the generic Shounen stuff(Naruto, Bleach etc.)

I really wish I had more fans who were as involved with anime as I am . The only other anime I discussed was Black Lagoon with one of my friends who graduated last year.

Don't mind about the "Kapamilya" stations but the "Kapuso" sucks for repeated anime.

The anime scene seems to pretty well off in my area of Milwaukee.

The big gathering location for aniem fans here is a store called Anime Fan Zone, where tons of japan/anime merchandise is sold, and it also has a pretty good arcade that is quite active. They even have japan only released arcade cabnit games, such as Melty Blood. Its a greats tore and I regularly go there to socialize playing card games or playing the fighting game sin the arcade.

Other than that there are a few palces that have anime clubs around here, heck my old high school had and still has one.

There is also a lot of places to find anime merchandise like the 3 mega media stores around the area sell lots of anime dvds. Suncoast movie store has a pretty big collection and even has anime event days with cosplay contests twice a year. And another location called Lost World Wonders is half american comic store, and half japanese comic store. Lost World Wonders also sells quite a lot of anime figures, anime cds, and they have a huge collection of Gundam models (which I love picking up on occassion).

So yeah, it feels good being an anime fan in the Milwaukee area.

Anime's pretty popular back home in Toronto, but here in Waterloo, it's more like a closet hobby LOL. Anime is not in any public context or interpersonal context. The most you can get is a "yes" to "do you watch anime" from people here. No stores here.
