Before I picked up JJBA, I thought that it was about time travel. I jumped to this conclusion after I'd heard several times that there were Nazis in it, and then I got confused as to why it was set in Victorian Britain.

I also thought that the series was set prior to Fist of the North Star or something.

When I was a kid I thought anime was just western cartoons. I didn't even know anime was called anime at the time.
>>
I'm not sure if this is considered a misconception, but whatever.

While watching Clannad for the first time I was on wikipedia to check at which episode I left of at (by reading the episode summary). One time I accidentally went to the After Story section of the page, and just by skimming I saw "is a continuation of the first season" and "tomoya and kyou are dating".

Now of course this made me believe Kyou was going to win. By the end I had no idea what the fuck was going on and I thought that After Story was maybe some alternate universe where Kyou won. Needless to say when I started After Story and saw that Nagisa was still with Tomoya I was fucking pissed. Later looked at it again and saw that it was talking about the OVA for After Story. As a Kyoufag, I'm pretty sure learning the truth about that was more despair-inducing than anything else in the anime.

The distinction is purely western.

>And years and years ago I thought Sayonara was Spanish

Honestly I thought this too. Even when I started watching anime I thought this. I mean they have so many loan words and use English all the time, I thought that "Sayonara" was just a casual goodbye like "Thanks" is sometimes used casually.

I honestly thought it was all for adults with the obvious exceptions (the stuff that looked really childish and was for elementary school kids) and that everyone in Japan watched it and no one was looked down upon for watching it.

I was way off base.

I also thought it was superior to American animation as a whole, with the exception of Disney and few choice works like Gargoyles or X-men.

Kuudere. Kuu=Kuuru=Cool
Cool and calm. You could find someone like this in real life easily.

Dandere. Dan=Danmari=Silent
Seems to have no emotions. You would have a hard time finding someone like this in real life.
>>
>>101366916
Definitions would really overlap. You can find coolness in silence, if you get what I mean.

It would be a matter of identifying them closely enough to differentiate them. For example, I don't find Yin, Rei and Nagato as "cool", I find them adorable and at silent mode always.
