BuzzFeed sat down with a group of Americans who had never watched anime before, and showed them a bit of two of the more popular recent anime series, Attack on Titan and Kill la Kill. Here's a few of the reactions (that mayyy drive you a little crazy if you're an anime fan):

  • "These robots are for sure gonna kill all of them." (referring to the Colossal Titan in Attack on Titan)
  • "I think anime sets unrealistic eye expectations..."
  • "Like, Spongebob doesn't have this kinda drama in it, ya know?"
  • "I just assume that all anime is about a schoolgirl trying to avenge her father's death."
  • "She's wearing suspenders over her nipples!"

For all the reactions (which are pretty fantastic), check out the video:
