A friend of mine (warning, this is a "my friend" kickstarter) is a film student looking to fund a big project. Most normal people don't watch anime or understand what the its weird fan base is. A lot of people just plain don't know about that huge community and are baffled when they see convention goers. This documentary attempts to demystify the hole thing in an educational documentary. While Japanophilia is the main topic it will inevitably touch on other things conventions are about like comics and the horrors of MLP and homestuck. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/637668928/animerica-japanophilia-in-america Read the kick starter page, my summary really doesn't do it justice. Here's the page's preamble for those too lazy to even click the link. Their goal of $40,000 is ambitious but I don't think it's unrealistic.
