Why do you hate anime so much? Why?

null
Kill all anime fans. Kill them all!

I read DannyChoo’s entry on Anime Haters and wondered about something that seems to be common among the complains. It’s the phrase Naruto. Before you think that this is an entry that I will go about bashing or worshiping Naruto, this is perhaps the last time you will read of that word in this entry (or perhaps second last). I started off a more serious relationship with anime through the viewing of you guess it, Naruto. I used to have quite a few misconceptions about anime but more about that later.

Before I start going on an incoherent rant, I will just like to explore the reasons that people use to justify their hatred. A quick look at previous entries writing about this topic mostly focuses on why or why anime do not suck, but it misses something important. What are the reasons why the haters particularly hate them, be it rational or irrational? I am not going to challenge any of these possible explanations too much. I prefer to leave you to give evidence whether they have any empirical validity.

I hate cute things with big eyes

One of the common things that I hear from haters is that animation is orientated toward making the girls as cute as they possibly can. Most of people who dislike anime considers this to be mere pandering to an audience who cannot care less about a story. They believe that you might as well watch Tom & Jerry, Spongebob Squarepants or Shrek if you want some nice cuteness. In fact, let’s just watch Mickey Mouse! The shows are generally empty and is devoid of plot. It’s just for cuteness, as they all say.

It’s those obnoxious fans

Many know of me as an anime blogger, but a little known fact is that I used to hate anime. That past is not that far away. I do not just hate anime. I hate the people who view it, considering them no more than socially deprived people who I can scent a mile away. I always have the hatred for the extreme fans (who the haters consider to be the general serious anime fan) who literally force anime down your throat. Needless to say, my hatred of anime developed even more with those fakers who try to go “Sugoi ne, Naruto-san!” on me. Sorry, I do not think you are cute. I still don’t.

It’s hentai!

Another misguided conception I had in the past is that I assume all anime is an exploitation of the female gender, creating sexual scenes of breasts, panties and innuendo (Guess what anime I watch on television then. A hint, it starts with L, and the second word starts with H). The thing with many anime is the notion of fanservice. There are some that are blatant, some that are contextual and some that are in the gray area. Nonetheless, the amount of ridiculous fanservice to make otakus go in fervent stupidity can turn people off. That includes me.

It’s for kids

It might be the Pixel productions in America. It might be the many popular anime shows that cater to the public. As haters often look at a small part of the pie to make a hasty stereotype, it is quite easy to state that anime are for kids simply by Inuyasha, Bleach, Naruto and Digimon. I mean, those are the few Japanese animation series that haters know due to popularity. Tell them about Simoun, Serial Experiment Lain and they will still tell you it’s for kids.

It’s bad graphics compared to GREAT AMERICAN ANIMATION

The title says it all. People often talk about how great american animation is. I am just wondering with the amount of budget that the major animation companies in USA can spend, they are wasting it on absolute run-of-the-mill series. Nonetheless, they often talk about old school anime such as Akira or the Miyazaki series.

Anime is for yaoi!

A common perception, due to the rabid yaoi fangirls that can literally suffocate a man to death with her weight (yes, a stereotype), is that animation is often about boy love. I am not sure where that conception comes from, but I have heard it from some people about this.

Anime is for hate!

Everything is allocated toward anime as an invasion by the eastern hemisphere. Used to cultural imperialism through Hollywood and their highly serialized series, anime is a natural jerk reaction toward the east. It’s nationalism.

    OMG , some people are so limited.
    I am Romanian , in my country there was a long period when electicity was cut down every day between 2 and 8 hours and there was only 1 tv post that aired for 3-4 hours.But that was 18 years ago.Nowdays you have 300 channels and a tv in every room.
    I grew up watching Disney ,then one day they started airing animes -animes were cheaper than other foreign animation(Sandy Bell was my first one :)) ).Ever since that day I couldn’t stop watching anime.
    Like 5 years ago they stoped airing it,God bless the interenet and the German TV.
    So , in time I learned that anime is made for a wide age scale: 9-12, 12-16, 16-18, and over 18.
    I don’t like The Simpsons or Futurama but I enjoyed watching Nerima Daikon Brothers.
    I’m sick of Hollywood big budget movies that keep comeing out leatly.They can’t make a decent Horror aither.
    Those who want to know what really anime is(or should I say this is ‘real anime’) should watch:The Last Unicorn, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle,Princess Mononoke,Ghost in the Shell,the last 3 Macross creations, Hellsing, Cowboy Beebop, Samurai Champloo, Blood + ,Lovely Complex (ah those teenage years),Honey and Clover,
    Grave of the Fireflies ,Rurouni Kenshin ,Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade ,Perfect Blue ,
    Boogiepop Phantom ,Rumic’s World: Mermaid’s Forest ,Fruits Basket ,Neon Genesis Evangelion ,ETC.
    There are many good animes out there, and I’m sorry to say but I prefer at any time Naruto and Bleach to those hidios soaps american and brazilian or spanish.Anime are far better than movies these days (lol, lately movies are made after animes) or stupid tv shows (foreign and romanian).
    The only interesting ones (series ,shows etc) were: LOST and CSI ;
    Channnels:Discovery , N.Geographic and Animal Planet (XD).
    Great American animation? I can’t comment that , I haven’t seen anything great lately…(yeah, Shrek was fun …).
    Obnoxious fans? There aren’t any here in my country.Even Otaku is civilized (of course nothing else is…). I have to admit that some fans look kind of creepy , crazy and scarry on the internet, but hey! there are a billion times more crazy soccer and football fans :P.
    Big eyes? Yes , there are a ”few” semples ,but most of them are well drawn or cute, but not all are like that I saw plenty realistic graphycs.
    Hentai? So wath ? Don’t you watch porn (89% of the world does!)? I kind of like Hentai, don’t throw any tomatoes, it’s better than usual porn , it even has a plot and character development.I didn’t play any games , their are not my type.
    There is one thing I hate from those told above by IMPZ:when people try to act, talk and write in japanese.That’s bullsh*t!Do it only if you are really the best.Fanfiction insrted with japanese words is an endless nightmare, cheep comedy and boring horror.
    Ok , and at least :Yaoi fangirls.Dear God , now there’s a specie that frigtens me , even trough I’m one of them sometimes.Yaoi is ok as long as it’s not forced on you and it’s not all over the place.I hate it when all you can see and hear is yaoi or yuri.People , girl X boy is the best, nature and existence cofirmed it.Nothing compares to true love between a man and a woman.Amin
    That’s all , I hope XD.
    PS:my fingertips hurt…

    First, let’s be frank: Anime was started up in order to create CHEAP shows. Just compare the frame rate (about 5/6 fps is pretty good for anime, 24 fps is roughly the norm for Disney) and the fact that they basically copied Disney’s animation style and made it as cost effective as possible. So basically, early anime looked like some retarded Disney bootlegs. THis is why so much anime is based around comics. It’s just cheaper to basically copy comics frame by frame and add voice-overs, and some anime reflect this.
    The entire reason ANime was created was effectively to appeal to Japanese people with ‘exotic’ people (as they have no real foreign/exotic actors because they’re the most homogenous nation in the world/racist pigs). It was essentially to appeal to fanboys in the first place.
    People are somewhat justified in considering Anime trash. This isn’t to say that their entertainment is any better (*cough soaps *cough). There are only so many twists and plot devices you can invent before you start copying everyone else. In effect, once you’ve seen a few, you’ve seen them all (except once a blue moon when it’s GOOD).
    I’ll be honest. I like anime. It can be a great medium for storytelling and there are some fantastic shows, but your head out of your ass before you start defending it.

      I can’t completely agree with you . Anime started when Japanese ppl experiment on animation which was a business started in the west but it did not copy any story or any thing else if u want read more about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_anime

  3. Posted May 5, 2008 at 8:36 pm | Permalink

    @Liberius: Amusingly, I don’t see any justification to consider Anime trash since anime is just like all other forms of artwork. For every fantastic show, there are always 10 others that are just plain average. It’s not only in anime, but in movies, in soap, in drama and everything that has an art form. That is not legitimate since it affects everything.

    I think that many countries are pretty much nationalistic in their media landscape to be honest. Despite globalization, there is an increased nationalism in terms of national channels.

    I hope some one will read this coment, since I wanna talk about a related issue, that has been bothering me for some time.

    Rather than these who only know anime through the naruturds and yaoi fangirls, I think the mine threat on anime fans are these who see themself as “true fans”, yet claim that “99% of all anime is crap”, opten accusing every show out there to be “generic” or “unoriginal”. It has been bothering me, why those who see themself as the “elite” or “most knowledgeable fans” are also the most judgmental and refer to anime as a contemptible thing.
    And this approach only expands!

    The reason it bother me so much is because I feel affected by these people. seeing this “99% of all anime is crap” posted over and over again affects you. I’m afraid that this phrase will affect me, and I will no longer be able to enjoy shows I enjoyed so far because I’ll constantly criticize them just as these people, and me enjoyment of anime will thanks to the expanding approach of seeing this shows as crap and the growing ridicule to them and anyone who enjoy them.

    tl;dr sick of the ridicule criticism.

      Actually people of all ages read manga (anime’s second cousin) in japan. Grandmothers, 50 year old business men, especially on the subway. There’s a whole range of topics and stories in what is simply japanese comics (essentially their version of dc comics). It’s not just for kids, never will be.
      Americans are probably afraid of it because it’s rooted in another culture. Americans are isolated xenophobes who make fun of all other countries: canada, mexico, france, russia, JAPAN. No one in amaerica can deny they have been tought almost nothing about other cultures, or in fact geography, a lot of them are too stupid to even point these countries out on a map. Goes to show what being the richest nation in the world does for you: it makes you essentially the geopolitical definition of an “OTAKU”.

      • Posted February 5, 2013 at 5:42 am | Permalink

        This is an ancient post, and I only allowed your comment out of moderation to tell you: Fuck you.

        All Americans are this or that. Every American knows nothing about the rest of the world. Suuure. I’m sure where you’re from is just a model of knowledge and understanding too. There are smart and dumb people everywhere, but please, continue with your uninformed generalizations. Additionally, I don’t think the U.S. has a monopoly on making fun of other cultures. Ever notice how much anime makes fun of people/cultures from outside Japan? And that’s just one subset of one country’s popular culture. I could go on and on, but writing this is really more time than the topic deserves.

          Meh. People like this “greg” (great punctuation, btw) will always try to use big words (like “geopolitical”, which wasn’t even used correctly) and decent sentence structure to condescend on others. The funniest thing is, in the same (way too long) paragraph, Mr. Greg here both simultaneously ranted about generalization, and then went on to do the very same thing about Americans.

          Well, Mr. Greg. Let me let you in on a little secret. I’m American. And I don’t even need to adopt the “rich kid” attitude you so ignorantly gave every american citizen to tell that I’m more coherent than you. You talk about Manga like you know what it is. I’m sorry, but ANYONE that calls Manga a Japanese version of “DC Comics” (which, btw, is yet another generalization. Putting an entire industry under the name of one company is just idiotic) does NOT know the first thing about Manga. Manga is a very old art form. It’s history has seen many economic and social eras, and has endured through many changes in government and power. It deserves respect (“it” being the art form, not to be confused with personification) and if you can’t at least research what you’re attempting to defend, then I suggest you hold your tongue, lest you make youself look like a fool. Ach. Nevermind. A little too late for that, I’m afraid.

          But, I digress. My point is ExecutiveOtaku, is that there’s no. Point in getting upset over idiocy like this. There’s the intelligent, and there’s the ignorant. But, what makes an idiot is someone ignorant that tries to act intelligent. They’re just wannabe’s. And the only thing they’re worthy of, is the laughter of the smart. Don’t rage at them. Don’t reason with them. And don’t scold them. Just laugh. Laugh your ass off and move on. Because they’re not worth the time.

    I’m more of a manga fan than anime fan…however, I agree with the ‘big eye’ symptom that kills things even in mangas, but anime is entertaining, sometimes, especially ones by Bones. I don’t count myself as a full anime hater(more like a quater) but I have to say some anime fans can be annoying.

    This makes me remember those high school days. I wasn’t adverse in showing my anime sketches to anyone who asked, but this eventually gave fodder to the class’ snobs to harass me, asking why I liked cartoons since cartoons is for kids. I would answer that animation is just a medium to tell a story and not a complete genre for an specific audience; slapping it as ‘for kids’ was nonsensical.

    That’s the best ‘excuse’ I gave, and for me it makes complete sense. But you can’t argue with this people. They don’t give a rat’s ass, they just want to bully you and feel smug knowing they are more ‘mature’ (you know, liking what the popular majority likes). I find it hopeless, so afterwards I would just say “it’s none of your business”. Yeah, pariah of the class it is.

    first of all, every individual is unique and has his/her own preferences when it comes to entertainment. i believe that in order to gain respect for your tastes, you’ve got to give respect in return or better yet, accept the damn fact that you can’t expect people to always like what YOU like. the world doesn’t revolve around you, you know! bitching about it in forums like that only shows what kind of personality a person has. the first thing people would notice is how completely IMMATURE and CONCIETED that individual is. ah yes, its a form of freedom of expression ain’t it? but there is still such a thing called DECENCY. what is decency? look it up in the dictionary if you’re too ignorant of the word. i’ll leave you with these words: “RESPECT IS NOT EASY TO EARN SO KEEP IN MIND THAT THE FIRST TWELVE WORDS THAT COMES OUT OF YOUR MOUTH WOULD LAST A LONG FIRST IMPRESSION”.

    First off,great american animation? I`m sorry american animation isn`t that great,its mostly based off japanese based animation anyways.Anime isn`t supposed to be high in graphic,thats what makes it great!The Japanese are more concerned with kick ass graphics on games and electronics.I see nothing wrong with cosplay or crossplay.I also agree with the Romanian girl,hentai isn`t any worse than regular porn.As for Narutards,I agree,they`re damn idiots.There are so many Narutards out there that it has actually turned me away from watching the anime or reading the manga.I really dislike popular anime until it goes out of style. I like animes that are similar but it depends on if they`re different enough to enjoy.I don`t think its just for kids,there is so much innuendo and suggestive themes that it can appeal to anyone.I seriously think that people need to get over themselves and keep an open mind to other cultures.Although I agree that it is mostly aimed towards teens,what the hell isn`t aimed at teens these days?
    Anime is just like any other form of entertainment,you can hate it all you want,as long as at least one person still enjoys it,its still going to be ther when you wake up.

      Don’t call Nartards a “damn idiot”. It’s offensive and mean. I am a Narutard myself and that is something that I’m proud of. What’s the point in ranting about Narutards when you can ignore them? I agree with some parts of what you said but Narutards are not idiots. Please be considerate to other Narutards. They could be offended by this message. I know I am.

  11. Posted July 2, 2008 at 2:26 am | Permalink

    I want to get my say in so here goes:

    First the ‘anime is a waste of time’ is getting pretty old. I understand that some fans tend to get a little obsessed (I should know) but I don’t think you should just label them or anime because of that. I started watching animes like digimon and drakonballz when I was like, WOW, really young. Then I got into Yu-Gi-Oh around the middle of my 5th grade and, it being a really long series, got me through the next two years. So one day I decided to pause a tape and started to draw one of the characters. Ever since then I wanted to become a graphic designer. And that was the best possible thing that could have happened because up until then I wanted to become a vet. A VET! Think about all those poor animals that could have died because I got bored of looking into their stomachs! So anime is an interest just like any other and shouldn’t be rated down because of the FANS.

    As for being hugely defensive about anime, you’re kidding right? If you like soccer and someone tells you, out of nowhere, that it sucks of course you’re going to go and pick a fight with them! Because it’s an insult like any other! And most of their reasons are just so stupid you wonder later why you even bothered. If you know someone likes anime why tell them you hate it? As if they care or want to know.

    And as ‘being for kids’ that’s such a low blow! People who say that obviously never really saw an actual anime. Many animes are more mature than the some so-called horror movies and dramatic sitcoms out there. And they often have a better plot too! The only reason that they get so tuned down from their original broadcasting is because of ass-like american productions like 4kids dub them into little kiddie shows.

    Over here on this side of the world nobody really has a problem with anime or manga. This is probably because it doesn’t push you down the social ladder. Anime is just seen as ‘your thing’. Like a brand or type of music or whatever!

    Point is nothing wrong with it, never was, and public anime haters are the ones who should really get a life.

    But aside from that, I have a friend who claims he hates anime, and I’m not sure where that logic comes from. He watched Dragonball-Z, he’s a Pokémon NERD (He’s f*cking third in the championships of our country with the card game!) and is besides from that a bit pointless.

    I bet these anime haters wouldn’t be able to see the difference between Anime and American Animation especilly considering the fact that the two take from one another. :)

    And how stupid is it to say one is too old for cartoons? Does that mean these people will never again watch a rerun of their fav childhood cartoons. I’m 21 and I still watch the powerpuff girls. XD

    Cartoons are for kids? LOL
    That would mean, if I took a porno and made it into an animation, then it would be okay for 5 year olds to watch.
    Does this mean live action is only for grownups? (Blue’s Clues)

    Watch Cool World, Perfect Blue, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, DeathNote and tell me if you’ll let a kid watch them?

    A fair percentage of people hate anime because it might be or is more popular than American cartoons.

    I love to watch anime, but I hate anything hentai and Ecchi because its SO degrading towards the female gender.

    Most of the girls look too young for sex like this: http://www.animecharactersdatabase.com/character.php?id=16861

    Not to mention its too much of Skimpy Clothing, tentacle rape, sex powers and giving them huge breasts like this:

    http://www.animecharactersdatabase.com/character.php?id=3610

    It’s disturbing that sex has to exist in EVERYTHING and it makes my skin crawl to see my gender potrayed like this.

    NekoChan your silly rant is why I feel such animosity towards most Anime fans. I admit American Animation has declined recently but there was a time when American Animation was spectacular. I’m not gonna call you names. I just think it’s the fans rather than the Anime itself that irks me. I hate Hentai and Yaoi and Yuri.
    I love Dubbed Anime I’ll only watch a subtitled Anime if the dub has terrible actors.

    I have more issues with the fandom than Anime itself.

    What I really don’t understand about these “anime haters” is that they make such a big deal about it. Okay, you don’t like it. So, what? Everyone has their own tastes in entertainment. Ranting and bitching around about it isn’t going to solve anything. In fact it’s just pointless. I can understand if a person doesn’t like anime. I do agree with the fact that some anime”worshipers”(Such as the Narutards and the Bleachers.) can get very annoying to the point that I’ll want to forfeit anime. I admit it. But, I do love anime and just because I do doesn’t mean that I’m going to throw it in your face and try to make a person an anime devotee. If a person likes it then he likes it, if not, then there are other types of things that they can like.

    Oh, and anime being just for kids?!
    Pfft! That’s a load of crap! I’ve seen anime that’s got so much sex, blood and gore that my stomach’s actually started to churn! Not all anime is for little kids. Trust me.

    people who hate anime simply don’t “Get it”. You see, the mind of one who, in my regards, are usually quite the slow single-minded person who makes a life out of giving people “paper or plastic”. Your hatred means nothing to the face of humanity, so go cry now :)

    They`re noobs. i met one on xat that said:
    “Brb im gunna practise my anime (you probably wont know what that is”
    I said “I know what anime is”
    She said “Go away no you dont even if you did i would be better than you”
    I said “Fine if your “Better than me” then show me your anime on photobucket”
    She put it on photobucket and showed me the link and it was TERRIBLE
    she said after a few minutes of silenc “everyones silent for my awesome anime yet you still dont know what it is :P”
    I got mad at her and i banned her for noobishness
    2 hours later she became unbanned and she said “You guys are all losers”
    She was also emo and i hate emo and like 80% of anime art is emo which annoys me
    I hate emos because they only wear black and red actually only red because black isnt a colour i mean Get A Life Emos,Your lucky god even gave you colours and you don`t even use them you should be ashamed of yourselves

    Eh I watch anime and read manga too don’t really care what people say. When there is an anime series going and someone walks in and say “what are you watching?” They for some reason have a look on there face but that person be watching Family guy, The simpson’s, spongebob, etc. Once they get over they get over there so call hate or whatever they would actually shut up and watch it with because they finally see what plot is going on.
    I play sports, work out, other stuff that people consider mature. I watch anime because I love watching it even though you will see similar plots for somewhere before, but who cares. One thing I am not is the people who really really like become hardcore people who thinks they know it all.

    Anime Is Not Just a Form of Toon Or Porn.. Its a Way For An Artist To Express Him/Her Self While Sometimes Telling a Story.
    Sure Not Every One Likes The Same Thing.
    Why They Hate is Because Simply: Show Offs Or Jerks Who Like To Hurass People Who are Diffrent.
    I Really Dont Watch Anime Any more, as Much as i Did, But i do Draw it Well. Helps Releive Thoughts or Ideas Of a Story.
    Dont Let it Get You Down Hell Dont Even Pay Them Any Mind There is Always The Good And Bad Parts of Life. Just Like Animes Some Suck Some Rock.
    Empty Threats To the Any one Who Even Watches it.: Youll Be Alone For ever.
    Thats the Best ive Heard in a while. The Answers Simple No i Will Not Be because when im Drawing Novels, Or Shows, ill Have more Then Shit Load of Fan Girls Lol.
    Point Being Dont Be A Bigget or a Ass. Be your self, if they Hate you they Hate yah.
    Cant be Helped. But Dont Be over Obsesses Either Them Boys Get To Much Hate as it is, Because They Enjoy The Youth Of there lives Longer Then Any of Us.
    But Still Have Priorities, Find People with Common Interest, Online or in Real Life.
    Not Every ones The Same.
    Plus “Hate” its Self is overated,
    The Worlds Full of It, Spread Love.
    Try New Things You Might Just like Something Diffrent. Before you Hate It.

    Hope That Helps.

    one anime can resove this…and it is Death note.

    He thinks anime is for kids -this one has a thought provoking storyline

    Cute things with big eyes- realistic artwork

    For hentai- all women look normal (no huge tits or anything)

    America is better with artwork- most detailed anime I have ever seen

    Annoying fanbase- has intelligent fans

    I think a lot of it is racism. they are racist towards asia and find it “weird and stupid” because they only care about the country they come from (note, i am American)

    Well right now I’m not afraid of saying that I’m an all time anime fan especially a Narutard! Sure say all you want about anime. I know many big time anime fans that don’t even talk much about anime. So don’t go around saying anime is for losers or for little kids. People have their own interests. Sure many people go around talking about anime everyday, but you can’t go around saying anime fans are annoying or anything like that. And I agree with kana-chan that is a whole lot of racism. Seriously be considerate about anime fans. They could be offended by this blog.

    You would not believe how many Yaoi fan friends I have (.w.) (all of them are skinny and rather small surprisingly) I use to not care for anime that much but then I actually started to read Manga then go on to Anime because of my girlfriend (now Ex) . My favorite anime still teeters between Spice and wolf, Sayonara Zetsubo sensei, and The world god only knows But I guess one of the root of the hate of anime is really because of how different the culture is (since it’s from Japan,) when I mean culture I mean like the aspects of comedy, values, and so on.
