So am I the only one who feels his like walking on legos each time I see someone using plurals for anime? Is anime! Just anime! One anime, two anime... not ANIMES!!! I watch anime... I watched a lot of anime. I finished 300 anime... not ANIMES!!!!
For Heaven sake peoples! Is a Japanese word. Is a word without a plural. There are some words without a plural... Like snow... You don't use snows, right? Or rices. Or nothings. Or ANIMES!!! Is Anime... Just Anime... No matter how many, is just anime... Please stop using the plural... Use just anime. Use it correctly and responsible...

signed - Und Grammar Nazi!!!!!

P.S: I am not sure about or comfortable with ''mangas'' either... but at least that doesn't make me cringe in agony. And sounds possible...

But you would say cartoons. I guess I'm not bothered because the final s is not pronounced in French anyway

I don't know where you got your "Grammar Nazi" certification from, but they would revoke it immediately if they saw what you just wrote.

You say people saying "mangas" doesn't make you cringe when both manga and anime are Japanese words. Sounds pretty hypocritical.

I don't see the logic behind it if mangas are fine, and also your example of snow doesn't really work since snow just like rain is more about the natural phenomenon and is the sum of the snowflakes and so it isn't quantifiable in literature terms contrary to the snowflakes which just like animes are. Same for rice which is the sum of the grains, they don't have a plural as you mentioned but you can't say neither "a snow" nor "a rice" but "a snowflake" and "a grain of rice"

Also I would expect better from someone calling himself a "grammar nazi"

I guess we should stop saying "forums" and use "fora" instead if we are to follow the grammar of every foreign language.
I really enjoy those "helicopter ride" memes

How charming, a grammar nazi who doesn't use correct grammar himself.

Is this a deconstruction thread of a grammar nazi? Very uninteresting.

You should at least try being more subtle with your bait you know.
