Even for the biggest fans, anime can oftentimes be confusing, so it stands to reason that non-anime fans can be totally lost when it comes to some of the genre's more bizarre tropes. Why do anime dudes have so many nosebleeds? Why don't the Japanese characters "look Japanese"? Why do characters always scream when they are doing a special move? Believe it or not, many of these oddities actually have explanations. Some seemingly random cliches have roots in Japanese culture, while others are more specific to the anime industry. Whether you're a non-fan, a casual viewer, or a total expert, there are probably some pieces of anime logic that you've never been able to wrap your head around.
