Interesting .... I guess it is something like the feeling I get watching a badly dubbed show ... the voices almost never seem to match with the actor(s).

Yet, I wonder how influential anime would be without the acceptance of "global" participation in such activities? Not to mention the fianancial situation of anime related activities were to remain as cultural niche markets?

Using the example of Apple ... one could argue that remaining "proprietary" in general concept, hindered growth to the point that IBM ala the PC with open architecture eventually eclipsed (and monopolized) the personal computer market.

IMO, in this day and age, it is more profitable (on the larger scale) to promote global channels ...
