I’ve run the Japanese Anime club for teens at Crofton library for the past four years, and parents and people who haven’t watched anime before often ask me: “So what is anime, and why does my child/friend/spouse like it?” Or, if they’ve been exposed to anime that their family or friends watch, they may already have some assumptions about it -- such as that it’s kids stuff like "Pokémon," it's dark and violent like "Akira,"or it's set in strange fantasy worlds like "Attack on Titan."
