Anime Hater by MystressOfDarkness13 Anime Hater by MystressOfDarkness13
I don't know what it is about Anime, but it's never really appealed to me much. Maybe it's the weird Japanese humor, or the barely coherent, bland plots. Maybe it's the fact that almost every single Anime out there is always a variation on the same theme - fighting. Maybe it's the strange animation and too-fast style. Whatever it is, I really, really do not like Anime.

Now, don't get me wrong - I do like the Manga style, when it's done well. However, seeing that art animated and set to some strange story about fighting ruins it. It's like drawing a portrait of your best friend, and then animating it to sing in Spanish - bizzare and frightening.

Besides the shows, there's the over-zealous fans. Seriously - you try to explain to them that you don't like Anime, and they say one of two things:

A) "But... But... But... Why?!?! Anime/Manga is so amazing! I bet you'd really like it if you gave it a chance!"
B) "What? You hate Anime/Manga? You suck, n00b! Go to Hell! Anime pwns teh wurld!"

I am dead serious. That's how every single Anime fan, regardless of the show they watch or the Manga they read, reacts to me. And then when you try to explain that you just admire the style, they say one of two other things:

A) "See? You *do* like Anime/Manga!"
B) "LOL you hypocrite!"

Honestly, what is the big deal about Anime? It's just a Japanese cartoon. And Manga? Just a Japanese comic book. Do I like the style? Hell yeah. Am I an Anime person? Hell no.

If you agree with me and don't care how many Anime/Manga fans get pissed by my little rant above, feel free to take and use this stamp. And to any Anime/Manga fans who get pissed off by my rant and my stamp, build a bridge and get over it. I'm fully entitled to my opinion, even if it goes against yours. I have nothing against Japan or Manga style. And to the Naruto fans in the audience, stop whining about my use of the Naruto logo in this stamp. It just so happened to be the first logo I found when I searched 'Anime' on Google. Now get off your Ninja-Shippuden horse and deal with it.

I am an anime lover and I do agree that you can love/hate whatever you like. I was going to argue, but then I read the full info. box and you're right. If I pretend anime was a book I loved, you have just as much right to love as hate it. (The inside me is thinking of animes to show you. The inside me doesn't like you making this stamp. I'll stop the inside me {for now...})

Okay, so according to your ummm wut's it called
You DON'T hate anime, you just occasionally respect the style
but most importantly, leave it be.
I personally love anime, and i think you're cool like that
Compared to sum others on DA, you're pretty nice.

Try Hayo Miyazaki films, they are anime that doesn't have all that stuff you mentioned. :)

I am an anime myself, but I am in no way a weaboo or a crazed fan XD

I do enjoy it, but I'm not gonna flat out say "WUT, U DUN LEIK ANIME U LOOZER GET A LEIF!"

I completely support your opinion X3

(And I can definitely see why you wouldn't like it, there are some flat out TERRIBLE animes out there :/)

First of all I want to sincerely apologize for bothering you with this comment I completely understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However you appear to be missing some information.
Although I completely agree that there are far to many animes that use the same recycled plot line there are still several animes that don’t. for example a recently realized title bloody Monday. The plot of bloody Monday is that the main characters father is framed for murder and that there is a terrorist group that is planning to kill millions of people and thus the main character uses his hacking skill to attempt to protect himself and his sister. Although this plot may seem familiar the deeper you get into it the more interesting it becomes. As you progress through the story new interesting facets are brought in for example the main characters sister needs dialysis everyday and this creates tension and is completely played out to its fullest potential in the story.
Also not all anime is about fighting just as not all American cartoons are about superheros in tights. There are several different jounras of manga/anime theres shoujo (girl manga) gag (comedy) shonen(fighting) then there’s mystery manga theres manga created for adults known as senin (not the porno anime just more adult kind of stuff.)
Finally I just want to state that I do not personally care whether you like anime or not seeing as it does not effect me. I have commented in the way that I have as a way of spreading information not as an argument to get you to like anime. You like what you like and its none of my business. However there are things I do not like as well and one of those things is when people do not have all the information on a subject.
Again I apologize for taking up your time with this comment and would like to aploud you for being so open about your openoin as well as to thank you for taking the time to read this coment.

Ps the main reason I must admit that I wrote this comment was to prove that not all anime fans will reaspond in the same way some of us can think out a logical reasoned argument.

I don't get why anime's so popular on DA.I guess it's because the style's so easy to learn.It doesn't take as much practice to draw,I guess.Heck,your anime can look like crap and you'll still get pageviews and positive feedback.

The style isn't that easy to draw. People just make it seem that way because people troll so often.
