Yeah, almost everyone's heard the Pokemon/Yu-gi-oh! excuse. And people also say "How can you like that? It's in a different language." Here's one conversation I've had:

Me: "Yeah, I like anime. Manga too."
Idiot: "I don't, Dragonball Z is stupid"
Me: blink.gif

Apparently Dragonball Z's their image of what anime is. Which is not cool.

sad.gif Please don't diss Yu-Gi-Oh!. The subs alot better as well as the original first season and the manga.

The worst reason from an anime-hater:
"Why do like that junk? Are you trying to be a wannabe Japanese?"

So I'm Mexican... and I like anime/manga. Big Deal dry.gif
That guy really pissed me off mad.gif , I started shoving him when he came close to me. I know that wasn't very polite but I think the fangirl/guys got angrier than I did. laugh.gif

My guess is the way how the anime is dubbed in english. Like the some of the anime's we see on TV that are licensed by 4Kids give off bad impressions about the anime. They make the anime look more for 3 years olds and stuff like that yadda yadda yadda.

My school don't really know anime but the anime freaks sticks together. Here's one peculiar animation talk:
Me:You like anime?
Dude:oh, yeah I like Simpsons
Me: No, Japanese cartoons.
Dude:DBZ?(except the he said the whole name very slowly) Yeah I like it, it's cool.
Me: Uhh,DBZ is outdated. I was talking about new ones, like FMA, Naruto?
Dude: huh.gif

*sigh* There are more....

The one I get all the time is "OMG, you watch cartoons, grow up"
Yeah, grow up... they think that anime is for little children, but I don't think children would understand more complex animes, like SELain for example.
And most people don't have a reason for hating anime. They just do. One girl once asked me to change my display picture because it was an anime character.
(that girl was never seen again o_o and the police is still searching who did it.)

It's not mindless humor........... No one ever says that but then again the ratigs on Adult Swim prove it.

Also it's very stupid when people just say anime sucks, but they give no reason to why they think it's stupid, just rant about it.

Me:wha-what is so bad about it?
hater:teh suxs y u like anime u gay fag?

JUST A FEW DAYS AGO


Me:Hey, you ever see any anime on YTV?

Friend: WHAT THAT SHOW NARATU?!?!(Naruto)It's so bad. I hate all anime anyway it's for kids.

Me:Nah it's pretty good(until episode 80 then starts becoming good again awhile after) and it's Naruto. Na Ru To. And I don't think a kids show would show the kind of violence that most anime's have.

Friend:BUT BUT BUT BUT STILL *waves hands*

O.K. First off, "Yu-Gi-Oh!" is not a kid show. If you see the first season uncut you will see that it is definatly NOT a kid's show. Yami Yugi kills people and Marik stabs his father to death. Secondly, you have to think it's in America and about a card game, so of course they would direct it more towards little kids because little kids love to play with cards.

We have people (mainly parents) saying that FMA is witchcraft. My friend even bought a shirt that had the Transmutation circle on it just to pezz her mother off (and it did). My friend and I made her mother watch the first episode of FMA (just to hear it straight from Edward's mouth) that it is NOT witchcraft it is a science. After that, my friend's mother understood it more. We even made her read and anime book and she UNDERSTOOD it. Now they are at peace with each other about anime for the most part (hears angels singing).

I have a girl at school that I went on a trip with say stuff about anime. We (mainly me), was watching anime in the hotel room and it was FMA that I was watching. She started saying that it was a little kid show and to turn it off. At the time she said that there was a bunch of blood, guts, and fighting going on and I was like "Ohh yeah, this is definatly a little kids show." sleep.gif She was also talking about how "Spongebob" was a lot cooler (not to diss Spongebob, though, because one of my freinds likes it). Again, not dissing Spongebob, but how in the FRAIL do you have a flipping swimming pool IN THE OCEAN?!?!?! And the pineapple; what's up with that? And for Kami's sake, it's a sponge. You wash dishes with it, and seeing them talk and sing will make children fear doing their chores becaue they're afraid it'll come alive and attack their face.

At least anime makes some more sense. A lot of American cartoons show people getting hurt (for instance, Wil. E. Coyote <SP?> falling off of a cliff while chasing the Roadrunner and Elmer Fudd shooting things and they're fine), while in anime it's usually more realistic and it shows the consequences of actions such as that, so in a way it's better than most kid shows because it pretty much teaches people not to do stuff like that because it can kill you.

Okay, for the umpteenth time; Yes, YuGiOh is moderately violent. It is still a kid's show. Yes, yes, Yami no Bakura tears out Pegasus' eyeball and licks the blood off, and all that fun stuff, but children are still it's target audience. Same with other bloody shows such as Naruto, Rurouni Kenshin, Fullmetal Alchemist, etcetera. They're all targeted towards children and young teens. The difference there, is that many of these series have a much more universal appeal than most of those targeted towards children in the US, thus attracting a wider audience and gathering more revenue, but most anime and manga is meant to be marketed towards the younger audiences.

I even remember Yuu Watase's authors notes about how people in America percieve anime. "In America, they seem to think anime is for adults. Saying things like, 'But there's violence and girls have big breasts.' I think they were surprised when I said in my interview that in Japan, anime is still for kids."

But later she also said she'd been getting a lot of letters saying, "Not only things like; 'My older brother likes to read it too," but, 'My mom likes to read it too.' These are some progressive times we're living in." laugh.gif

There are only a few anime series I can think of that are predominantly targeted to adults. Noir, most of ABe's works (SE Lain, Haibane Renmei, Texhnolyze, etc.), Ghost in the Shell, and of course, all Hentai, to name a few.
