I tend to prefer subs over dubs because the voice actors were picked by the creator/s of the anime themselves. It is how they wanted it to be, and i respect that.
Trolls. Can't live with them, can't live without them. Because they barge in to every thread YOU can find, that's why.

"You're still watching cartoons?!?"

I think they expect that "cartoons" should only be watched by five-year-olds. Doesn't bother me most of the time but it gets quite annoying when you hear it often enough.

Others say always to me things like
Others: "oh my god you still watch things like pokémon?!?"
I: "Anime is not only pokémon there are different kinds of it!"
Others: "That's only for little kids!"

Well i think they don't know that there are anime that only are for adults ÖÖ
but i think they are the little kids they just don't know what's fun >.<!!!!

This is so easy to respond to. Just compare the anime you're watching to live action TV shows that they are watching. Chances are, they'll have some immature mindless drivel like CSI, so you can pick it apart as much as you want. Of course, that doesn't apply if you actually are watching anime that appeal to children, like, say, naruto, TTGL and such.

Simply put, go on the offensive, as there's always something better to pick on people for than watching cartoons.

I watch anime because of my frreind who is obssesive otaku, so non-anime fans usually tell me:
"Why the hell you watch those stupid japanese cartoons?! You're not five anymore, you dont have to do everything your friend does!"
Well, I like anime.. Some of them... So it's okay, isn't it? ^^''
Sorry for my bad english

I don't think any non-anime fan ever said something stupid to me because I like anime.
And if anyone once will, I will just ignore it. I can't take people like that serious. It's not even worth discussion with them because they usually are too stupid to understand anyway.

I heard that a million times.


I've never been told that though x)

But what's annoying is not the stupid comments it's the fact that some continue on saying absurde things even though I explain them over and over that it's not actually that way. Like anime beeing for kids.

And what's wrong with haging out with your friend and doing stuff you both like? x)

Well I haven't heard anything stupid from my friends. Probably because my friend can remember every Pokemon from 1st season. So it might be a bit hard for him to say something like "lol that's for kids!" :D

lol. my mom thinks that all anime is porn. for SOME reason. i dont have any clue why or where she got this idea.

Lol, my mom's like ''It's all about girls with skirts and big boobs!'' She might be right bout some anime.

My dad didn't want my mom to buy any manga for me, cause he was like ''They're all about sex! I don't want my son to read that stuff!''

God, they have no brains at all. D:

Well, the worst things are not the words from my point of view. The expressions are enough.
The one I hate the most is when someone sees one of my anime or when I'm talking about it and his face says:


Forgive my melancholy.

in my experience, ppl mostly hate anime fans cuz they hate introverted ppl, not because of anime. In my school e.g. it was totally ok when a popular guy was talking abotu how he watched an animeO_O. That's why... let's say this is a normal situation:

Anime fan: I like anime!
Hater: You're gey! LOL
Anime fan: ...ratard-_-...

This is how my convo with an anime hater went:
Me: I like anime!
Hater: You're gey! LOL
Me: I'm not ._.
Hater: idyot!, it aint popular, it's for qeerz!
Me: doesn't have to be...
Hater: WHAT?!!
Me: What the hell are you talking about!?!
Hater: What's your problem moron?!!!
Me: Just saying anime aint for geys...
Hater: well whatever-_-...

We hanged out later and are still okay with each other=o

my friend: "Why do you watch anime all the time?"
me: "=_____= .....why do you watch Desperate Housewives?"

Seriously, what makes watching anime wrong..? Some of my friends tell me to talk something else, when I'm talking about anime and stuff with another friend. "I don't want to listen that."

"Anime & japanese music is shit."
Oh, so when you don't understand lyrics, it's shit? There are so many genres in japanese & anime music, like there is everywhere else too. So if they sing some language that you don't understand, you can call that shit...? Ok........

And here if you say that you watch anime or read manga, they're like "NARUTO!!", 'cause when they started publish it here, all little otakus, who love Naruto were like "Weehee~" and others were like =_____= So now all others think everyone who likes anime and manga, likes Naruto... That's annoying..

Heh. That sucks. Gotta give them the credit though, for being considerate enough to not say anything offensive... Perhaps that kind of facial expression is also the result of them failing to keep a poker face.

I don't understand what people are getting so upset over. I think the criticism has its roots in reality.

* Anime ARE cartoons
Just foreign ones. I think that if it's animated, its fair to refer to it as a cartoon.

* Anime is for children
Maybe not young children, but most (not all, but most) anime is certainly aimed at the under 20 age bracket.

*Anime is not porn but...
There is a lot of porn out there. >.>;

I heard this crap on Garrys mod once.

"Anime sucks because it's gay"

Another thing I want to point out is once I played another game with the tag 'Otaku' somewhere on my name, and nearly everyone was dissing me. They said stuff like.

"We don't care about how many Manga's you bought from the libarry"

"Is anyone here not a 40 year old rapist?"

"I bet you jerk your 2 inch penis to lucky star"

(This is why I really hate internet tough guys...)

"Anime...? Oh, those Chinese cartoons?"
THEY'RE BLOODY JAPANESE!!!!! Jeeeeesus christ that annoys me. >:)

A bunch of my friends (male, surprisingly -.-) just associate anime with hentai. That bugs the hell out of me.
"What're you reading, Sara?"
"Oh, she's reading Japanese porn."
Thanks for that one.

Really though, non-anime fans can't say anything about anime, since they've never watched any themselves. Everyone claims to think anime's crappy for whatever reason hasn't watched any before. :)

I don't mind when people say it's cartoons but what bothers me was when a non-anime fan (actually a non-animation fan) on YouTube said something along the lined of:

I hate people who watch anime and cartoons. They actually like the childish humour in these shows, they're so immature. Grow up, watch something with substance. I hate people who dress like Naruto and Spongebob...even adults do this. They fail.

To which I reply: what the heck!!

And he's like I also hate the shows themselves because it's all big voices, big hair, big swords, big everything, it's annoying!

O.o

I can name 50 amimated shows and movies without childish humour or big everything. But I'll just drop it.

Terms that people throw around too loosely around me in a attempt to make me feel shameful about the stuff I love.

I have an ex-boyfriend that doesn't like anime, but he's seen Fullmetal Alchemist.
We were having a conversation 11 months after we broke up.
It went something like this -

Me: Yeah, I'm excited to go to this anime convention. Two of my favorite voice actors are going to be there.
Ex: Really? What are they known for?
Me: Well, one plays Edward Elric and the other plays Roy Mustang.
Ex: Oh, so they're guys.
Me: Yep.
Ex: You like them a lot?
Me: As a fan, yes.
Ex: Is that why I don't stand a chance dating you again?
Me: What?
Ex: Well, you only seem to be interested in the anime nerds, and those voice actors must know a lot of anime stuff, and since you like them so much, you're going to chase them and make them love you. I mean, that's what any normal anime fan does when confronted with their favorite voice actor, right?

Never have I wanted to hit someone more than that moment.
