Can You Name These Anime Characters?

Have we reached mainstream status yet?

It’s genuinely strange to me that anime is becoming a mainstream thing. It feels like just yesterday I was watching reruns of Dragonball Z on Cartoon Network, barely understanding what was going on since I missed a bunch of episodes. These days, though, anime is everywhere. Even mainstream giants like Disney and Time Warner have their toes in the production and release of anime, to say nothing of all the streaming services that host it all.

But even if anime is becoming more ubiquitous, I wonder if that’s the same thing as being “mainstream.” After all, it doesn’t mean anything if you can recognize a character is from an anime, but you can’t name the character themselves. I do believe it’s time for a litmus test: see if you can name all of these characters.
