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.

Everyone is like that. Anyone has their own hatred.

You are literally the first one with an anime hate stamp that has ever given a good enough description to not make me go cold and sarcastic.

... Only thing bothering me is the stereotypical sight on anime fans. It's true that many anime fans behave like that, but if you look closely on pretty much every fanbase, there will be about three sides: The normal, mature and grown-up one, the normal one, and the insufferable one.

Personally, I aim for the normal one, but in some cases, I'd rather be the first one, because stuff like these stamps are here. Really, instead of a stamp, couldn't you just had made a journal?

I understand your point. I must admit I am an anime fan, and I also love the style. I apologise for any fan who as acted as immaturly as you have stated, but please know not all are like that, I, for one.
I would also like to say that not all anime are based on fighting. There are many many different genres to anime. Only 1 genre is called 'fighting' and there are over 30 genres!
Everybody has an opinion like you said, I am simply expressing mine now, but I know some immature personnel go too far and believe their opinion is correct over others.
I hope you do find more anime people who do not react so immaturely so that your opinion may change on the fans of anime ^-^

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.
