@Okkabogga: I think you refering to the first post, since the phrase seem quite confusing. ''as we all know we can not let this Japanese art in the future space nation''
@Offroad, I'm pretty sure you mean something else here, maybe you should try to rephrase it ... or maybe you really ment how it is said?
To my personal point of view, there is other historical novelist that brang many future idea that been now a reality; such is Jules Verne (Twenty thousand leagues under the sea (1869-1873), From the earth to the moon (1865), Around the moon (1870), The floating Town (1871), just to name those)
But, I do agree that anime bring another aspect to our view of futuristic avenue, way beyond the one brang by Jules Verne.
Even so, I name this autor, but there is many more too.
