Okay, this isn't about hating the haters of a genre; I'm personally perfectly cool with people just having different tastes in entertainment, but there are just some justifications that are incredibly lame, and I'm sure I'm not alone in having encountered some... half-baked bashers, right?

I think mostly, people who are anti-anime had already made up their minds about liking it before they even gave it a fighting chance; that's how cynicism usually works. But in their strive for hating, I've heard some pretty dang funny reasons in my day.

Such as:

-Because it's Japanese. (...okaaaay...?)
-Because it's "Chinese" (blink.gif)
-And I quote: "My dad calls it 'Junk TV'."
-"I saw pokemon. I didn't like it.", or "I don't like stuff like Yugioh." (I swear, if I hear this one more time, I'll- I'll... keep my anger to myself!!!)
-Because real people don't have big eyes like that
-And I quote, "How can you stand the noses?"

etc...

Anybody else have some stories/ dumb reasons to add? smile.gif
