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.

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

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.

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.

It depends on what anime you're speaking of. Whenever an anime gets mainstream, the artists feel rushed, rushing episodes and therefore having bad animation. The less mainstream, it seems, the better they are.

Manga is shit. No exceptions.
Compare real art, portraits and stuff with the manga style: It sucks.
Plots, dialogues? Suck.
Everything is about things that fight or some "cute" stuff. Or both... Boring, dumb, uncreative.
I'm not an artist myself, but I can see that much.

Not every single anime out there is about fighting. Not every single one is "uber kawaii desu ne" You're just judging by the more mainstream ones, and yes, most of them SUCK MAJORLY. If you look hard enough, you'll find a diamond in the rough.

lol it would be sad if all anime were like Naruto. Blegh.
But to be honest, you don't seem to know that much about anime when you say that the plots are "barely coherent and bland". ;) Since the manga/anime world is huge. So it's kinda weird to call yourself a hater, but that's your opinion.
The problem is that only the manga for kids/teens are so annoyingly popular. About (most of) them I totally agree with you. And they attract all those rabid fans too. :smoking:

You made a lot of good points. I have to confess that I love the art style of anime.but I will admit that I hate anime.Mostly because it's the same ol s**t. Most of it both old and new is just bloated garbage.
And the overzealous fan drones also deserve their own rant. Most of them either try and memorize lines of DBZ or explain why Gundam is deep. To quote SpoonyOne "I don't hate it. I just hate the people who are obsesed with it."
The only anime that has style with substance is the work of Miyazaki. Mostly because it takes itself seriously.
Oh well. Good thing USA is still producing great cartoons(Avatar: Legend of Korra, Sym Byonic Titan and or Clone Wars Season 3)

Anime all looks exactly the same to me. If you have to draw it to appreciate it then what's the point? I hate the eyes, I hate the overly 'cute'ness and it really sickens me, and most of it is perverted too. And it's so overly perfect and professional looking that you can't really appreciate it. I say make up your own original style of drawing, geeze.

I personally try not to judge series' based on genre, whether it be anime or western cartoons. But, whatever colors your Fruit Loops.
I wouldn't call myself an anime fan since there's only a handfull of series' that appeal to me, but I wouldn't go condemning it either because most of the popular series' suck ass. (Naruto, One Peice, ect.)

To me, a cartoon is a cartoon whether it's from America, Japan, Canada, wherever. In reality, there isn't a big deal about anime and manga. The haters and fans are the ones that make it a big deal.

Oh, dear! I'm SO guilty of loving anime XD
But I've never drawn it the GENERAL way. It's the annoying generalized anime that makes me cringe. What's worse is when it's mixed with porn. It's disgusting. It's child rape that ends up being called art. And unfortunately, it's the DUMB FANS that make anime so hard for rational people such as yourself to like. In short, I fully respect your opinion.

I can understand where you're going with this and at times, it makes sense.
I'm an anime fan myself but not over-the-top obsessed with it. Heck, I don't even cosplay.
In all honesty, I'm glad I read your opinion on it considering that it was mature and made sense. I already know not everyone likes anime in general. Usually when people say that they hate anime, they complain about it and look completely immature.
I remember years ago when I used to like Inuyasha but over time I grew tired of it 'cause they constantly repeated the episodes from the beginning. As for Naruto, I liked it at first but I grew out of it. :/

i like a good mix between of anime, as long as you don't say anime is not art, i have nothing wrong with you hating anime...

I mostly like there style, and am the type who loves a lot of fast action and stuff... am happy you didn't say anime is not art :3 I use to like naruto, intill Sasuke turned in to a real faggot... i don't care that maby he rejoined With naruto, i still want him dead DX I just hate everything about sasuke... oh well...

Again, i have nothing wrong with people hateing anime, but saying Anime is not art or any form of art, then that's just wrong... Because people work hard on those, it takes time, like as if you were drawing non anime art, it's just the same... Anime drawings is nit like a scribble on a peice of paper, it actually looks like a person, or a thing, it's a work of art!

Am an artist, who tries to see the picture it self, not what it realy is.

Am not ranting at you, am just poring out how i feel about anime and it's artistic style. :3

lol "Now get off your Ninja-Shippuden horse and deal with it."

I loved your last comment there XD nice!
