People yelling, clapping and screaming? I guess it's a difference in culture; Japanese see the movie theatre as a place in which one should act in respectful silence, kinda like in a religious place, while Americans view it more like a sports arena?
It's not generally American audiences , it's specifically weeab/nerd audiences. Go to any regular movie release and you'll get the same quiet silence, but any anime movie that isn't produced by Studio Ghibli or isn't a sort of art film and you'll get howling audience and people with no respect for others. I remember when I went to go see the first Heaven's Feel movie in theaters, it was so obnoxious I almost wish I hadn't gone; meanwhile when I went with a friend to see Ride Your Wave it was very respectable and quiet.
So yeah, it's not American audiences, it's arrogant fan bases with no social awareness. If there's a US release of Final I'll definitely be on the fence on whether or not I even want to bother to see a theatrical release.
