Ahh, how I can relate to this. The general population of my camp does not like anime or manga or hasn't even heard of it. School's a different story, there are a nice population of anime/manga fans.

But if I come across an anime hater it's usually the usual, blunt, "Because it's gay" as said a few pages back or something of that nature, or they bring in old old kid anime that has been horribly dubbed to fit the young American minds . dry.gif Also, said a through out the thread.

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.


Yeah, the movie "Kite" was DEFINITELY for older folks. I don't get squeamish easily, but the violence in that movie sorta disturbed me. And dog gam, the sex scene---I had my eyes closed and headphones on (it was at an anime club meeting and I've never gone back since a little after this incident), so I didn't see it, but just hearing the noises still made me almost cry; it was like porn from what my friends told me. X_X It was good animation from what I did see, though...

I get a lot of, "Anime's gay" from people, too (usually from immature *censored*moots who just wanna start something, i.e. proving their idiocy of having a closed mind). How could they say that if they haven't even SEEN it, especially the good stuff? I'm sure that if they actually sat down and watched it they'd change their tune. -_^ +

I get that a lot. If they would just sit down and watch it they may actually like it. Instead of believing what they hear other people say about it they should watch it (the good stuff) and form their own opinion.

She had no idea about any anime (except Sailor Moon but that was quite a while ago), and now she loves it!!!!!! 3 points for the anime fangirl!!! yay!!!! now to get to my other friends...and I'm off *runs off with a backpack full of random anime crap she found*

I have a friend who started to watch FMA and liked it, then when the second season starts he makes fun of it cause it's on at 11:30pm(I was very perplexed myself) Apparently he did not understand that CN cannot show Blood/gore, sexual content, language in the daytime another guy used Southpark and some violent daytime shows as an argumnt but he didn't quite get the point. Yeah uh hu. Not the stupidest but definetily the weirdist.

Well, I'm a new Anime fan, so I'll admit that I was pretty blind to what real Anime is. I only thought of Pokemon and such when Anime was mentioned. Then my friend showed me FMA and I realized how wrong I was, lol wink.gif.

I second that. laugh.gif

I hate to say it, but I used to avoid anime because of the fans. Back about five years ago, every anime fan I knew was either a big, smelly, stereotypical otaku, or some pot-smoking weirdo. The anime itself looked cute, but the kind of people who liked it made me a little wary of it. unsure.gif But then, I got into it anyway, went to college, and found some fellow-fans who weren't creepy (and who didn't smell bad.)

I suggest you keep at it though! This happens to me sometimes and than I keep trying! wow, if ya think about I can be annoying!

Now back on topic, sorry if this was already said, but someone says they don't like it because it's backwards(manga). backwards? how the hell does that effect the quaility. It's not even backwards, it's just in Japanese format!

I have friend who told a group of us (were on an FMA converting spree) that she would rather read because anime is nothing more than a stupid cartoon and she would prefer to be literate. And yet, she watches Spongebob (uh--we do too, so this isn't an attack on SB)! So, her bf (who was with us) offered her a compromise....she could watch anime with us...and he would turn the subtitles on so that she could read too and we would ALL be happy. biggrin.gif

Ummm...it didn't work.

And then there is the usual...it's lame, it's just a cartoon (*gasp*), you know the excuses....there are a plethura of them. What's wrong with these people?? wacko.gif But I agree with the general consensus that if half the anime haters would actually take the time to watch some of the good stuff, then maybe they would stop being sooo stereotypical.

Have a few minutes?

"It looks gay."

"I hated Yugioh, so I'll hate this."

"It looks like Pokemon."

"The eyes are too big and the nose is too small."

"The lips don't move with the words."

"The voice sucks."

"It doesn't look like a real person." (I give you that, but does Spongebob look like a real sponge? Does Mickey look like a real mouse? Hell no.)

"The plot is too hard to follow."

"American cartoons are way better."

"This is America, not Japan."

Whine whine whine. I debate with all of these, but the people are too closeminded. >_<

yeah no kidding, i was lucky enough to be introed to anime just before i was sent to a school were a bunch of kids already read manga
and wached anime,
but for some odd reason that i can't explaine they all turned around and now are saying that "anime is stupid" and "it's all japanese porn"
i think that's all just crap, they need to get over it and sit down and watch something that hasn't been completely distroyed in the dubbing process sleep.gif
