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 >.<!!!!


Just show them Higurashi or Monster sometime. Or Perfect Blue. Little kids eh? Seriously. Show that you you're little kid, and it won't sleep for ages. x'D

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.


LOL. Edward Elric is voiced by a woman! x'D

When I tell people I watch anime, they will definitely look at my one kind.

"What? Animes are for small kids!"

.. is usually the expression I got.
Besides, I am being stereotyped. Because I am a top student, so when people know that I watch anime and is crazy about it, their perception will change straightaway.

"Anime freaks have no life."
"Anime fans will never find a boyfriend/girlfriend."

Well, I proved them wrong in the first accusation.
I am living my life to the fullest, not only isolating myself in the room whole day and thanks to anime, I got a boyfriend now :)

That's really pathetic. I mean it's not like we hurt anyone by watching anime right? So why would we suck dicks and deserve to die? Not even football-fans deserve to die, and they do hurt people by being a football fan. (the hooligans, that is)

I find it really annoying when people say anime are for kids. When they do, I will always get the urge to show them some scenes from Monster and Higurashi.

Please note I was watching Avatar: The Last Airbender.....and I have a sick, twisted sense of humor. I also was living in an apt. I shared with 3 other guys, one of which gets drunk a lot.

Them: When did Disney cartoons get so Hardcore?

Me: Huh, WTF are you talking about?

Them: You are watching some Disney shit, right?

Me: Disney wishes it could stop being evil long enough to make something this awesome.

Them: This must be that Japanimation stuff I heard about. I thought Looney Toons or Disney stopped make that stuff in like 1997?

Me: Seriously, you are making my head hurt.....just go back in the living room with your friends. Besides I just realized I don't know you.

Them: You know you too old to be watching cartoons anyway, bitch.

Me: Bitch? Your girlfriend is in the living room, right?

Them: Ypu, that's my lady.

Me: Go play this movie in the background, she will love it. Its called Bible Black.

Them: Is there a Black Jesus?

Me: Sure, why not.

The other day an acquaintance of mine was asking me for a book recommendation. I couldn't think of anything because I don't know what they do/don't have in my school library and I don't know what genres he likes. Note that I am horrible under pressure.

Him: Hey, hey, quick. What book should I read?
Me: I have no idea, what did you have in mind?
Him: Don't care, come on, give me one.
Me: I...I dunno, I can't think of any, something by Anne Rule, maybe? I don't know!
Him: Come on, I need one before lunch ends, bro.
Me: Uhhh, I can't think of any...
Him: Do you even read real books?!
Me: Of course I--
Him: Oh...right...anime. Yeah. *Walks away*
Me: The Hell, bro?

I am an avid reader. Apparently liking animu means you don't read anything but manga.

Generally I'm not bothered by a lot of comments, but some are down right dumb.

some coarse language



or anything else to do with how people who watch anime, no matter how much should be into hentai.
Shit like that shows how uneducated, how ill-informed some people really care.
Not everyone who watches anime is into hentai or some other type of weirdo.
Not everyone watches it everyday

Thats like picking on someone for watching asian dramas, yet if someone goes and watches another romance on American TV its fine.

Its not exactly the line that annoys me, its the people themselves.
I really pity how limited their perspectives of things are, if you're going to try demoralise someone or degrade them, at least find something that'll hold water.
They've got nothing to prove crap like this.

I mean stuff like Simpsons have adult content, not all animes are made for children, alot of stuff won't make it to your children's televisions screens.

Ahh well, no point moping over this stuff.

Anyway, I heard this: "Eew, anime? I hate that! It's all full of drugs."
The person who said that reads books with lots of, erm, "scenes" and "colorful langauge" so I dunno about that. Such a hypocrite.

Hands down the stupidest anti-anime statement ever made:

"Anime is proof that 2 nukes weren't enough."
http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-10471326-71.html

This man isn't *just* some idiot voicing his bigoted opinion, he's also a state rep. of New Hampshire.

I don't care if people dislike anime, but that's a little too far.

I've heard most of the same things that have already been said here. They don't really get to me. But what does get to me is the things that anime fans say. I went to the Anime North convention last year and it made me question my fandom. It was like being in the internet in real life.

There are plenty of things that anime fans say that really bug me. Such as
"They're not cartoons" Yes they are. It's nothing to be ashamed of.

Or "It's better than X" People have different tastes, you can't complain about people mocking you for liking Gundam and then mock them for liking Gossip Girl. You're just perpetuating the cycle.

Another one that bugs me is "That's not a good starter anime" Anime isn't some higher form of entertainment. It's no different from Western television or movies. I would never tell someone "Firefly isn't a good starter tv show" Anime should be no different.

Oh! There is one thing non fans say that bugs me "You spent how much money on that?" How people choose to spend their money on entertainment is their own business. As long as you don't live beyond your means it's not an issue.

I have a little troll of a junior who complains about how i should get a life and get a girlfriend and stop watching kiddie cartoons.../sigh

i have a beutiful girlfriend and as i find it hard to admit, actaully adorable and somewhat moe. i juggle anime and manga while maintaining 85% in every subject and spending quality time with my girlfriend who she enjoys watching code geass with me. he sits around and complains he has no money, fails everything in school and laughs at the word "come" while watching some of the stupidest old stuff on youtube, thinking its the NEW THING. i'm not trying to belittle him, but people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones
Damn the guy that insulted me on the internet!
DAMN HIM I SAY!!!!

"Aren't cartoons and anime the same thing", which isn't that stupid, and is kind of true, but after that she was comparing anime to Blue's Clues and Spongebob.

I got one of my friends into manga, but apparently they didn't know what anime was because when I was listening to anime music she refered to it as "chinese manga music" (and she was serious).

The ironic thing about the "all anime characters are the same" line is that I was told that from an anime fan, unfortunately a really dumb one.

The general gist of it is correct, though. The vast majority of anime characters are comprised of flimsy layers of tacked-on stereotypical traits and personalities, or taken even further, complete archetypes.

It's rare to find one with somewhat unique and thought out character designs. Monster gets a special mention here.

I'd have to say I heard more idiotic comments from anime-fans than non anime fans, considering there can actually be elitist on a anime watching site amazes me to no end, and then said people judging other fans by their own standards.

The thing is, that can go for any form of media. Tv shows, novels, music... it's rare to find anything with really unique or mind-blowing characters. It's out there, no doubt, but anime certainly isn't remarkable in it's lacking of them.

Dumbest thing i've heard anyone say about anime... that fangirls are lesbians in denial cause all anime dudes look like chicks.
