Oh my god, I almost always agree with Audy, but oh well!

Basically, this.

A big percentage of the member base here belongs to the anime fandom, and Pokemon itself is an anime and manga too, and while the Pokemon side of things have their own area - the point is PC targets and draws in a lot of anime fans. I'm one of them, and I'm not sure about others, but I've always liked that JE was separate from GE. I want my anime with my anime, and I don't want to scroll through pages of GE threads to find JE topics. Likewise, plenty of GE goers probably feel like anime should stay the heck out of their area if they dislike it.
