Hype culture and anime

I think it safe to assume that 99.9% of on this forum are gamers. So I don't think I need to explain what exactly is hype culture. I mean this year alone has seen many big games get hype and fall apart. Pokémon sun and moon is the only game that has not fell for... See more this pitfall. Let's hope FF15 and the new South Park do all right.

Anyway this is about anime and hype culture. How do I feel about this? for the most part it is a mixed bag after watching Love Live I found it to be a below average waste of time with cute girls. Same with Kabaneri of the Iron Fortess...but that was just really bad writing and world building with all of the worst zombie tropes thrown into 12 episodes of shit. On the flip side I enjoyed Re:Zero, Boku No Hero Acaedmia, One Punch Man, and Danganronpa 3 from start to finish giving those shows nearly perfect scores.

So here is my question. Do you think hype culture doesn't affect anime as much as it does other mediums?
If anime characters somehow fell in our world, what do you see happening?

> Yes, they're still animated and living among us real folk. Just use your imagination..

If anime characters would appear in our world, I feel it'd obviously hit the news to start. No way does the sudden appearen... See morece of anime characters in the 3D world with complete control over feelings like us doesn't make national headlines. At first I thought the goverment would secretely intervene, but it'd be impossible with thousands upon thousands appearing. You just can't hide it anymore, though I think dating them would be seen as a heavy taboo for a long time and it'd be up there with how gay marriage was and still sometimes seen by the masses. Though, I fear many of them would get raped (men and women alike) and it'd be a complete disaster.

Either that or we realize they aren't perfect and they snub losers and act high and mighty.

How about you guys?
