Because I bet at least some of us are big glorious nerds, I wanted to know if any if you guys watch anime and if it influences your YA at all? I've seen at least a couple people cite The Last Airbender as inspiration. Same for TV shows - any in particular that inspire/help you visualize?
I just watched Cowboy Bebop and if any of you have sci-fi/western themes...go watch it it's so gooood.
(I was gonna stick this in the pop culture section but I was curious specifically about whether or not it went into your YA)
