why most people think the anime industry is dying: illegal viewership on free sites not giving revenue back to anime creators and the unwillingness of people not to buy merchandise for shows that don't have cute girls
real reason anime industry is dying: WatchMojo top 10s
me when mom says we're out of hot pockets:
Started watching anime because of my girlfriend, she dumped me 2 weeks later, nice
When I die I want to have my ashes ground up into the finest powder possibly obtained by smashing them with a hammer and then have my ash powder be used as the secret ingredient in the apple pie served at my funeral so that when all the guests who come to mourn (many many guests, i'm a very popular guy) eat the pie they ingest my ashes and starting then I will begin to be reborn inside their bodies, have them shit out the non-essential parts of my new pervasive consciousness, slowly take over the host over the course of several years, live inside each host for their entire lives, then die again, repeating the process, generation after generation, each time preserving the consciousness of the xander you know and love until one day i will have amassed an army of me, connected by the same thoughts, the same urges, the same instincts, and will then begin my plan for galaxy-wide domination (it'd be too ambitious and a little cocky to aim for the entire universe).
