For anime newbies...
Long hair with mostly weird colors, cute big eyes, comical facial expressions
(changing shape of eyes, sweatdrops), small pointy nose, mouth wide open
and smiling, elfears, catears+tail+bells, lots of decorations in
hair, fancy clothes or not much at all, short-skirts, panties (pantsu
!;), flying/talking pets...
Note: You may not upload/download anime that is licensed in your country...
blah blah :)
Besides eDonkey, you can also try BitTorrent [screenshot]. This is generally better for high bandwidth connections and the files are not served for long. Just Google for 'bittorrent' and you'll find anime sites. Looks like it was made for it ;)
Get your friends into anime sharing too, because that would improve the exchange rate and popularity. Otaku-powerrr!
CG is either 3D modelled, photoshopped or made with other painting programs.
