Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
Sometime around 1999 I came across an Anime Music Video that I couldn't get out of my head. An Anime Music Video (AMV) is a fan art form where a custom video is created using Anime (Japanese Animation) to match a piece of music. Typically the music is American, but this one featured a something that I had never heard before in a language I could not identify. Unfortunately the video did not include information on the music. Here it is:
So I started researching. I managed to find the song and the group. It was China Dolls from Thailand and they sing in Thai and Chinese. Most of their stuff is fun pop dance. Here they are singing the same song:
I now have most all of their Albums although finding them in Thai is much more difficult than Mandarin. They were very popular in China and Japan as well as their homeland. I am not sure of their current status, and they are not releasing much, I fear they are no longer active.
Myself I will always love the little perk up their music provides. They are most fun to cruise along with blasting. They have a very high hit to album ratio. Bevy likes to use their videos as workout material.

Here are some fun songs on YouTube. You can find lots more.
