It looks like a little off-topic, but the description of this club suggests that anime watching metalheads are a rarity. In fact all my friends who watch anime are also metalheads. I'm serious. Among people I know personally, all anime fans are also metalheads without exception:) Do you think this is strange?

None besides me lol. I forced one of my friends to watch Elfen Lied and Higurashi though, and he did somewhat like them but he's not that keen to anime. But to Metal he really is, got me into Black Metal some years ago. \m/

No, it's not strange. Most of my anime-watching friends are also metalheads, but imho it's a special occasion. Because there are two kinds of anime watchers, and me and my friends are the open-minded and conscious ones. The other group is merely bishie-lover fangirl/fanboys and they love J-music. Unfortunately, the second group has more members. =)

mh... I know some metalheads that read manga but don't watch anime
and the rest anime watching friends does not listen to metal at all (maybe saying something like "Rammstein sounds cool" but that's all then)

Rest of friends are either non anime/manga
or non anime/manga and no metal.

So far the answers can be grouped in two. Salviati and shourisha being my real-life animetalhead friends, it seems Dark_Meteor and I can be considered lucky \m/.

To be honest, I don't know anyone who watches anime.
I also don't know anyone who listens to my kind of metal.

I guess what I'm saying is.......no.

Not including 3 of my brothers, none. I have a few friends that watch anime, and some others that listen to metal. Alas, I'm the only one that mixes both regularly.

So few. I forced two of my school friends who listen metal to watch anime and succeed. Two years ago, I had forced them to listen metal, anyway. xD So, at the school, there are two person. And other than that, there is a lot, but I don't see them often or I just talk them through internet. Most of the person I know who watches anime listen rock, not metal.

One. Met him at a basketball camp 4 years ago and haven't met him since.

And I'm not exactly the introverted type, either, it's just that Spain sucks about metal. I only know one decent metal band from here >.>

The two anime watchers I knew during high school were into the music that "generic" anime watchers are into; i.e. Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson, that kind of stuff.

However, my friend who is into Japanese film plays in a shoegazing doom metal (I shit you not) band... so yeah.

Other than myself I don't really know any ani-metalheads. My best friend kinda counts, but he's strictly a power metal fan. Blind Guardian, Hammerfall, Rhapsody and those types of bands. My other anime watching friends vary from listening to only country to only listening to mainstream metal bands.

I know a lot of anime-metalheads. Just coincidentally a lot of my friends since High School (currently in 20s) have been into anime and metal.

So I'll say... about 10 people.

So, we don't end up talking about music or anime.
