  11. What theme or institution in anime should be decreased or increased and why?
    Overall, anime titles should always increase.For something that can decrease, I'd like to see less poor voice actor choices because there are alot of anime that have such bad dubbing.

    I'd like to see titles in the following genres of anime increase:
    Futuristic Anime: I love all the great graphics and stories that are put into such titles.
    Samurai Anime: There are many things to go with for these type stories.
    School Related Anime: Most of these are very fun because they are so funny!
    Fantasy Anime: I enjoy just seeing the creativity in the creators minds.
