I actually find it kind of surprizing that so many of you people are upset/confused as to why Linkin Park chose to use anime in thier new music video. When Linkin Park first announced that BTH would be fully animated and hand-drawn, what did you expect the video to be like? If any of you have been a fan of the band for as long as I have you'll know that Joe and Mike are huge fans of Anime and that Mike even went as far as to give a shoutout to the popular anime film "Akira" in the reprise version of "High Voltage". I knew that if anything the video would be in an anime style because of the fact Joe hired a ton of expert Japanese artists to work on the video. I'm also not surprized it has "Aha" influences in it because if you are going to make an animated video you have to pay homage to the animated video that started it all. So think about it, did you expect the video to look like the smurfs when they said it was going to be animated? I highly doubt it.
