Nope, I don't.

I've never seen it in my life. I'm not even sure what it is.

While I have watched anime in the past, I don't make a habit of it -- it's too hard to find good anime.

Do all autistic individuals like chocolate?
Do all autistic individuals like punk rock?
Do all autistic individuals..........

No I don't like watching anime. Puppets capture my interest though.

I hate it.

It's loud and confusing, and sound effects accompany strange facial expressions that always make me think they are having a painful poo.

It's just a very loud and flashy WTF for me.

Do all neurotypical women like chick flicks? Do all neurotypical men like sports? Are all neurotypicals extroverts?

No.

And I've never watched any anime.

I bought The Professional on VHS way back in the 80's 8O It was an impulse buy , I liked the look of the cover , I couldn't get into it and haven't watched anime since. My daughter loves Studio Ghibli though.

Bought or rented a DVD of some animie space opera (forget the title) back in circa 1990. It was kinda cool. But never got into animie as a habit.

No.


In my case, I do from time to time on a whim.
At best I'd just like the stories and the musics involved, but never to a point of being a fan of the whole idea or concept though.

Other than an occasional Studio Ghibli film, I do not watch anime. Most of it is too flashy for my liking.
