Ok, so I have never seen any anime films/shows. COuldn't tell you any names of any anime characters or shows, though I have a few guesses. Admittingly, I am one of those who view anime as ridiculous and silly. More for children than anything.

The more I read here... the less I believe it is for children. Where would one start, if willing to give anime a chance?

Are there films that are easily considered to be "all-time greats"? If so, what are the names?

What are the most popular shows/films?

What's the big deal???????????????
