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

"Anime Fans are a bunch of obsessed nerds" [Ah, the old standby. The fans are a bunch of geeks, therefore the medium is worthless. Let's meditate on that one for a bit...]
"The way they put that Japanese humor into everything is dumb" [I admit that Japanese humor is a bit weak {a function of it being such a homogenous society} , but how does this reflect on the medium as a whole]
"The voices sound retarded" [referring to American voiceovers]
"Cartoons are for kids" [Yah... Elfen Lied is definitely a kids show...]
"It's just a bunch of robots fighting each other" [Yup... and giving kids seizures]
"The animation is all stiff" [We've come a long way since Akira...]

it just pisses me off the way ppl think like that...(mostly americans....no offense) but really, those ppl just think that real live action shows is much better than animated shows...like hell they would know anything....why dont they watch some REAL anime for a change instead of watching those kiddie shows like pokemon and yu-gi-oh....i mean, i use to like them but that was way long ago, like when i was in 5th grade or something....
someone should knock some sense into those nonanime lovers. If they saw some real anime shows and still didnt like them then i wont blame them....

The problem is largely that most of the anime that becomes popular stateside really is crap. It wasn't until the last couple of years that the real quality shows have had any exposure in the West, and even with these, the reach is limited and a lot of the quality is lost in the English dubbing.

"They don't blink." I don't even notice in any cartoons really if they blink or not. I am not looking at their eyes the whole time.

"Why does that spikey haired guy change his hair colour and have a yellow light shining from him?" Again, like YGO and Pokemon, these are children's cartoons not anime and is generalized.

'The lips don't match the speaking voices' =__= That's because they are dubbed... Go watch some subs.

To be fair, the lip flap doesn't match the voices in the Japanese versions, either.

This is all from my only "friend" who luckily has moved far far away:

"Because everyone talk fast and have pitched voices." (Cough... Exel Saga)
"How can you watch this Japanese CRAP!?" (How can you watch this English crap!? ... duh!)

-He ocationally repeats after anime in a gibberish manner
-He thinks that anim. and anime is the same thing. (He thinks "The Simpsons" is anime"

Just a note: He thinks Star Trek and Star Wars is crap just because it happens in space. He hasn't seen five minutes of any star wars film and hasn't even seen a star trek episode.



.... anyone else have stupid "friends"?

Hmmm.... applies to some.. tongue.gif (which in my opinion is just a good thing..)

The best reasons come from my mother

-it's childish
-it "ruins me" and is a waste of my time (when I could be doing "something else"
-I like it a lot (so if I like it a lot it is bound to be bad tongue.gif) and too obsessed with it

and my Mum has no idea what anime is about, besides the fact that it's Japanese.. and drawn

People allways have dumb reasons.. I personally like Anime better then American shit.

Watch an episode of Spongebob and, even if you've never seen it before, you can pick up on the plot (or lack there of) right away.

But stumble across and episode of Pokemon, (the simplest of all animes) and if you haven't seen it before you'd be totally lost.

The plots are thicker and better... and they don't use gross-out humour which is also good. (I hate grossout humour)
