I should've put down that he watched sections of Bleach, Death Note, and One Peice before Lucky Star. It just so happened that we talked again after he finished Lucky Star.

Clearly, he's just not into it. He's a stubborn kid, who figures that cussing and arguing will solve problems. I dealt with him perfectly fine. "Baka" is something I say at anytime, for the hell of it. I don't think it matters whether I talk in a different language or not.

Wait. I'm lost. If he watches only mainstream anime, then why does he say anime is stupid? Oh. I think I answered my own question.


He's not one for Japanese culture. Therefore, his time with anime was spent in a dull manor. I got him slightly into manga though, since he appears to like comics.

Mainstream anime are popular for a reason. Not all of them are bad, you know. Especially Death Note.

Unfortunately, mainstream anime have become the subject of derision among most of the internet anime community. Its become the "in" thing to ridicule people who watch naruto or bleach. Elitists think that since non-anime fans watch these shows, everyone who enjoys these shows are losers. I find that sickening. Who the hell are we to act like such elitists? Some shows are for kids and some shows are for adults, and if I want to watch Anpanman on a saturday morning (I dont), I wouldn't appreciate being told I'm stupid for doing so. Especially from stuck up internet warriors who think they're awesome because "I only watch shows like NGE"

Even I'm guilty of bias against such shows, but I NEVER take it against its fans, call people narutards or weeabos. We get enough of that crap from non-fans.

^Actually I prefer to describe them as trolls. As a moe fan, I always trolled "get a life you moetard!", from a Legend of the Galactic Heroes "fan". Forgive me true LotGH fans, I knew some of the trolls disguise as LotGH fans in order to troll people and telling everyone how superior their taste to other people, especially fans of moe and shounen genres.

I actually found this quote quite funny.

My buddy said this to me when he caught me watching some animu.

" You would thing they would lose their eyes pretty easy since they are so damn big, I mean can you imagine how painful it would be to have eyes that big?"

"FUCK ANIME, I'M GOING CAR RACING."

If you are not fluent in their language then how do you know if they are not over acting,underacting or sound like a Japanese version of Invader Zim,Smurfette or Sponge Bob square pants? You don't so you can't judge emotion from a unfamiliar and unknown dialect,grammar structure and language.

Tone, Volume, facial expressions, speed. All sorts of things. I mean really you have got to be kidding me if you think being fluent in a language makes you understand emotion. Do you have trouble detecting sarcasm in your native language then too?

lmao @ op

People think anime is gay because of the people they see watching it. Weaboos are people that I'd rather not associate with in real life. Why? Well look at the op's opening statements. It's the same with every other weeaboo Irl. They're usually too stupid to have a conversation with, and furthermore their comments make you feel embarrassed to be near them. The whole weeaboo demographic is a crutch in most countries, as they usually graduate from lower tier schools due to poor marks. People do not like weeaboos - This is fact.

People who watch anime are usually also unattractive and poorly-kept. In addition, they usually lack social skills. So the notion that people who watch anime will never date someone is a sensible presumption.
And where do you put yourself in that statement?

"Don't you ever get bored?"

"You still watch cartoons?"

they often tell me that >.> it's so annoying!
and whenever someone hears "anime" their first thought is "OO you watch that Naruto thing" (yes they say THING)

I haven't heard things that bad.

Just the usual "Anime is for children!"

Yes, because children just love to watch Elfen Lied, Higurashi and hentai.

I love it when the same person will tell me

"Anime is for children!"
and
"Anime is full of porn!"

Which is it? I'm pretty sure even the Japanese don't produce porn specifically for kids.

Personally, I don't mind the cartoon label. I've seen some great cartoons that I enjoy from the US and all around the world. It's weird to see someone use this as an insult, then go all gooey over the latest Pixar movie...

The other day, While watching Ghost Hound on my laptop, My friend looks over and shouts.

"Holy shit, Trenten is watching hentai"

How he knows what Hentai is is beyond me.

"why are you always watching that chinese stuff?"

"It's all the same crap"

"Wath's that? Deaf Note again? Hahaha"
"It's not Deaf, it's Death, jeez it's the seventh time I tell you this"
"Haha, you read something that goes by the name Deaf Note"
"-.-"

"WTH Is this?!"
"What, that? Oh, it's a shinigami, a God of Death."
"Wow...

"..."

I was with some friends talking about anime and another friend of mine says "You're allways watching and talking about anime, your kids will born japanese" -.- he also watches anime and is allways speaking about Yu-Gi-Oh so..

"The only reason you watch anime is because you're a pervert."

I guess she was referring to that fact that lots of anime has sexual tension / lots of girls.

Well they never called me perv for watching anime... x) But they do call me a child "you stoped growing up when you were 8" <_<

But what I like most is when they (trie to) make fun of me because I watch anime, and in the end I'm the one making fun of them because of the stupidity of the things they say like "Chinese or Japanese... It's all the same crap, they look alike and talk the same way" gosh is like saing Portuguese and Spanish is the same x)

The worst I can remember hearing is the 'You watch cartoons?'

I then go on a rant about 'Family Guy, South Park, The Simpsons, American Dad, Futurama, and tons more 'cartoons' that are largely popular'.

Then I say to actually watch an anime that isn't airing on tv and then tell me if it is a cartoon.

It's animation~ from Japan.

Other than that I guess I'm lucky that I'm a female and people think that I wouldn't watch 'porn' willingly. The joke is on them I guess; not that I actually watch hentai . . .

Better than someone telling you when you were a child "Cartoons rot your brain" *same person goes off to watch Nascar all day and night long for how ever long the race(s) are and how many that he watches throughout a week*

5. "Hahaha, you watch Anime? Like DragonBallZ?"
Really, there's a lot more stuff out there.
(No offense intended to DBZ fans, this is just what someone said to me.)

I've gotten that one too. Which makes me want to facepalm since I'm really really not at all fond of DBZ.

"So... are those dudes gay?" my male friend asked while I was watching Getbackers, in reference to Ginji and Ban. I was going to explain to him about fanservice and they were only close friends (REALLY) but decided to just not bother... Not that I would mind if they were gay seeing how I like BL, mind you. Hahaha.

To quote urbandictionary:
weeaboo 3384 up, 483 down love it hate it

A word filter for the image board 4chan.org that replaces the word wapanese. Originates arbitrarily from a Perry Bible Fellowship comic strip wherein a man was paddled by a crowd chanting "Weeaboo! Weeaboo!"
"Those Wapanese kids think Japan is so great."
becomes
"Those weeaboo kids think Japan is so great."

Justified because of all the ads on the internet equating anime to porn. Or at least there used to be back in the time of newgrounds etc, I don't know about the current situation since I'm using adblock, and have abandoned those sites long ago.

Oh my god, you just reminded me...

This one time this kid asked to borrow my phone and I had this really cool To Love-Ru background. He saw the background and yelled: "This guy has porn on his phone"
I was so shocked that I just said "Stop being being such a loser" and I snatched my phone back.

stupid kids these days...

1. When I tried to get my "friend"(he's a total douche, don't know why I ever hung out with him) to watch Lucky Star, as I couldn't resist the urge to try and share it, he came back the next week(procrastinated watching it) and said, "Wow, you're such a pedo." It's like, wtf, I can at least understand how mistook Konata etc. as being younger than a high-school student with the style used, but cmon why the hell do people think anime = porn??
Seriously.

But he was a special case, for some reason people tend not to bother me about being into anime. I guess they assume that it's natural for me since I'm half-japanese, even though I've lived in California most of my life and got into anime by randomly finding haruhi-chan episodes on youtube. Absolutely had nothing to do with my heritage......*cough*except maybe my knowing japanese*cough*

Oh and I know this is kinda off-topic, but I find it almost ironic that so few japanese people living in america are into anime compared to the non-japanese guys. I mean seriously, I walked into anime club at school and I swear, absolutely no one in there was even asian, let alone japanese. By that I'm not trying to be offensive or anything, I just find it pretty funny.

I don't think Lucky Star is a good first anime for people. Unless he has seen other one's before hand.

I have a great story.

Two of the people in my English class did their essay topic on Anime Club, which I'm the secretary of. I let them come into meetings as much as they wanted and then they had to present their findings to the class. Here's some things that they said during the presentation.

1. "I thought all anime fans were anti-social and hated talking to other people."

2. "I didn't know Pokemon was an anime."

3. "Everyone in the club was really nice and asked if we had any questions. They wanted to know if we were doing alright, and they talked about other things other than anime. I didn't know they were so friendly with people. I thought they would be mean or just ignore us."

The word "weeaboo" simply means a person who is is constantly on the computer and wishes they were japenese. I think it also means a person with no life, who watches anime. Or something like that. :P

I've heard a lot of stupid things from people, but I learnt to not let it really bother me.
There are too many to list here, and most of the comments come from my friends.
it doesn't really matter, though because I just see them as ignorant, but it's not like they really 'care' that I watch anime. We all have that thing that we nitpick at about each other for laughs. Mine just happens to be anime, but not that many people know I watch because I don't go out screaming it to the heavens. & nothing about my image would make you think that I watched it.

I do scream to the heavens, though how much I like final fantasy c:

"It's just...a bad dream! Wake up, wake up...!"
