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.
