Dont get me wrong i like sci-fi(Especially bladerunner and akira) But i dont like giant robots to me its cheap to use that as a median it's too over used and hard to explain in most cases(Which is why evangelion was ok because it explained why they used giant robots, Which i'm not gonna spoil for grayclaw) Look at terminator and matrix, Their stories centered around humans vs machines, They told you how exactly the world came to be in their universe,(Which i'm not gonna spoil again for greyclaw) Ghost in the shell thrusts you into the story without first giving a reason why the robots exist.
The thing is i like for a director to explain the story gradually not all at once or really fast(Kinda likes pirates 2 and 3 they rushed through them to get to the last scene) And to me thats the weakness of most Anime.
If you find a show with a main character who is not depressed, Has no giant robots or magic as a median to ride the story on, Or emotionally vulnerable girls call me, Till then i'm gonna watch myself some good 'ol action movies with a decent backstory.

Bottom line, you generalise too much, not all anime have emo pretty boys and unstable girls, not everyone knows the ending to Evangelion. So shut up.
1. Actually i dont know much but i know enough from all the shows i've watched(And i have watched alot)
2.. Actually brazil and south america have one of the most widespread anime fanbases next to america(Ask jeeves)
3.I dont generalize too much, Give me the name of a popular show right now and i'll be right(Other then Naruto because that show pisses me off!)
4. Dont tell me to shut up please dont i could whip your ass so hard in a discussion about this if i wanted to(Which i dont because t's not worth my time arguing with people like you who think they are right all the time)
5. This is going to turn into another Me vs Them flamewar see ya.
