    The report wasn't as bad as the previews suggested, but let me set this up for you. First, "Why So many Star Trek Fans are also Anime Fans." Second, they show anime clips of 'sexilly' drawn woman in tight outfits running around and doing backflips. This can't be a good report for fans of both franchises [​IMG].
    But, instead of bashing Star Trek fans like I thought they would do, they basically just stated how Anime has come up from a cult showing, to a merchandising hit. Never beleive previews [​IMG]..

    I'd like to see it

    It's true, most of the old guard anime fans came from the sci-fi con circuit.

    Personally I've gotten used to us being painted as perverts interested only in jigglefests with guns
