    From experience, anime connoisseur's are much more judgemental towards those who just like bad anime compared to people who are just plain ignorant about anime.

    There is your problem. Maybe it has something to do with spending 9 months on anime.

    As an avid watcher of anime, I can not deny that the majority of the people who are really in the anime can sometimes be weird or obsessed with Anime and Japanese culture. Heck, even I was like that when I first got really into anime, but now, even though all I watch is anime still, I don't care much for Japanese culture and am very picky with what I watch because most you see is just generic ecchi, slice of life BS with stereotypical characters and plot. I watch more serious shows now like Steins Gate and Black Butler.
    Anyways what I am trying to say is that even though many people who are into anime can be kinda weird, most of them don't mean any hard and are just really passionate about what they like. And the hardcore otaku that people are describing in this thread are not as common as people make them out to be

    No my problem lies elsewhere. I know plenty of women who enjoy anime and other things. But i won't go into my other reasons.

    Been a while since I saw a status update on how much someone likes anime. Admit it, it's a tabu, just like MLP is.
    Anime isn't Taboo :/ people that think it is are the narrow-minded fools who associate the ENTIRETY of a Genre/sub-culture with the minority of the bad ones.

    It is like saying I think people talking about Sport should be taboo, because all sport fans are loud obnoxious morons that like to watch men run around in small pants groping eachother.

    But I don't.

    Some people's usage of the word 'retarded' is idiotic.
    I don't hate you. I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence.

    You realise most Adults have spent that amount of time or more on T.V. in general. Maybe he chooses to Watch Anime instead of the shit on T.V.

    People need to realise that the only differences between your standard TV stuff and anime is:
    - Animated
    - No live shows or shows where they sit in front of an audience and talk about stuff with guests.
    - A bit of japanese craziness

    Thats pretty much it. We have action, drama, slice of life, everything that any TV show can have apart from the second point. Theres hentai in TV aswell, but its called porn, and due to the limitations of realism, hentai will obviously look crazier from some points.

    Then i guess its also because the standard otaku people have in mind is a creepy fat guy with a backpack a camera. Its the same as with people bashing board games. They have a picture in mind and thus its all bad and people who play em are idiots who want to be wizards and fight eachother with toy swords. Yet many of them play video games which arent too different. Warhammer? People playing with toys! Ignore the epic battles and strategic thinking yes please do.

    I dare say the best word for this whole matter is: Hypocrisy

    I personally don't like Anime, because I don't like most of the voice acting, plots and development of the story. It all seems massively over the top, and so ridiculous. That is my personal view, and why I don't watch them.

    Doesn't mean I hate people who do watch them.

    Sorry, back up a moment and tell me how long you've spent playing computer games.

    I'm not sure why the mods even continue to let you post, all I've ever seen you do is telling people that they're stupid or some other such, often piling on expletives in the place of any kind of logic or sensible discussion.

    Only time I've seen a real life problem with anime has to be with Naruto. Not saying the show is bad but since a lot of people see that as anime it kinda give it a bad name. That and we use to have some people dress up with anime stuff and come to school.

    But sense I got into anime, ive noticed people have this really arrogant view on anime and people who watch anime, da faq is up with it? If you watch anime your instantly flagged as "weird" probably suicidal, probably a virgin, probably a rapist who watchs tentacle porn, you dont take showers, you "live action" LIGHTNING BOLT type shit, and you have no social life.

    Like. Seriously? People have no issue watching lets say, family guy-But by god if you watch Death Note your this weirdo. If family guy is fine because its basically an animated version of the standard comedy show based around a family-Then whats the difference in something like death note, where its basically an animated version of dexter? The arrogance of people not even willing to give it a chance is ridiculous.

    Btw, if you just dont like it it's fine. Im not talking about you, im talking about people who instantly classify it as this dreadful thing.

    Sorry, just wanted to vent. Ive been hearing stuff like this for a while but this group of preppy jackass's just pissed me off today when they were talking about this kid.
    me and my brother was talking about this.

    He hates anime "due to the fact when he was younger his friend kinda shoved it down his neck" along with older style of anime everything was always moving in annoying ways if you get what I mean.

    also some anime have really stupid story's and settings.

    And I love anime personally perfer watching it over anything on tv really.

    One thing those who hate anime have not learned is that shows like family guy are also anime.

    Anime is short for Animation and all cartoons are Animation therefor all cartoons are anime.

    In the end its just people stereotyping other people.

    It's a very similar thing with western animation, people seem to associate cartoons as being just Family Guy and Spongebob Squarepants. I don't know if the newer titles (i.e. Adventure Time, MLP:FiM) did anything to change that assumption yet.

    I don't know why anyone would call an American animation by a Japanese word for anime. Sure people in America could call anime animation, because that's the American word for it, same with Japan calling something from America an anime because that's their word for it.

    Overall though it's easier to call stuff from Japan what the Japanese call it and stuff from America what the Americans call it.

    Well, no. Saying anime outside of japan refers to animation that comes from japan. People differentiate it from the word cartoon to avoid confusion, especially since western animation is pretty damn far from japanese and it's a japanese word at that.
    What you're saying is that since all squares are rectangles, that means all rectangles are squares.

    Which brings up the point that it's not just the US and Japan that put out animated shows. It's quite surprising for some to realize that animated shows are also created in other nations such as South Korea and Canada.

    What's wrong with tentacle rape??
