We all have that experience seeing Anime on TV as kids in the 60's and 70's, um, we've all seen the fans both in our age group and younger, and we all decided we need to put this energy together and so spontaneously, it just seemed to have happened, that groups who had the opportunity to do that had the time, perhaps also because this is an issue with a lot of fans didn't have family commitments that stopped just doing it; just started fandom just happened.
