My older brother constantly badgers me for watching certain anime series. He claims he doesn't have to watch an anime to know it "sucks." He only approves of the following anime:

Akira
Lupin III
Cowboy Bebop
Ninja Scroll
Wicked City
Vampire Hunter D
Golgo 13
The Animatrix
Trigun
Death Note
The Big O
Yu Yu Hakusho
Sherlock Hound

He tolerates Ghost in the Shell and Fist of the North Star, but he doesn't care too much for them. He thought the Tachikomas completely ruined SAC. He said the GitS movie was a "nowhere film." He says Hayao Miyazaki is overrated, and the only Miyazaki film he actually likes is The Castle of Cagliostro.

Here is a list of some anime he has condemned (again, without having watched):

Great Teacher Onizuka
Berserk
Hellsing
Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis
Paprika
Millennium Actress
Princess Mononoke (he called this film "kiddy crap")
Bleach
City Hunter
Dirty Pair
Galaxy Express 999
Urusei Yatsura (this one he has bitched at me mercilessly over for the past few months)

If an anime has even one scene involving perverts looking up women's skirts (such as in GTO and City Hunter), he immediately condemns it as "pervert crap."

Even though I like all the anime he approves of, he accuses me of being a "fag" and of having "terrible taste in anime" because in addition to the ones he approves of, I watch a lot of "crap."

He also came to the conlusion that I'm trying to "become Japanese" simply because I watch certain anime in Japanese.

So I guess the real question is... does anyone here know someone like this? How do I deal with someone like this? I really need to know because everytime I try to watch something on crunchyroll, my brother constantly shouts "THAT'S CRAP! THAT'S GARBAGE!", and it's starting to make me physically and mentally ill.

Everyone has the right to like what they like. You don't have the right to say that.

And that's my last input. Gnight

Actually, not exactly, my family doesn't particularly like this anime or that, but they do approve of the very few. ^^ So technically I do have some people like that. I only try to ignore them if they give me a hard time, it works all the time. I don't really care what they think, I love anime, and so do my sister's. ^^ The brother sounds mean, and stupid, I bet he secretly likes certain ones.

Well, thats a bit stupid now isn't it? Judging something without even have watched it... Personally, I love Paprika and all of Satoshi Kon's films. Don't be bothered by him, just because you watch anime doesn't make you a wanna-be Japanese. Thats just like saying I like eating western food because I wanna be Caucasian. Oh, and anything perverted is crap...haha, considering hes your older brother and you're 18...he probably should've watched porn at least once or twice so what right does he have to diss it? Besides, ecchi makes most animes funnier. =) If you are the calm type that doesn't like picking a fight, ignore him. If you're like me, then go have a rousing debate about how much he's wrong.

I only have one sibling that really knows how big anime is to me, and it's not THAT big of a thing in my life but still... Anyways, she tends to diss anime for being slow and boring. And I kind of agree with her so I don't mind. Mind you, she meant anime as in the anime series, she prefers manga. I would too, but online manga requires too much clicking. @_@

Everyone have their own taste. Sigh who cares what he said. If all human in the world have the same taste. Then there is no economy lesson exist in our world. Tell your brother that you are you. He is he. The two of you are simply to different being. That`s why it is impossible that you have the same taste as him.

You talk about it like anime watching is some kinda art. Anime is anime. It's something you watch. You watch anime. Anime, you watch. Y-O-U W-A-T-C-H A-N-I-M-E. That's all.

The real issue is that he tries to force his opinions onto other people. Simple.

And another thing. You guys say crap like "oh they only watch anime on adult swim and Cartoon Network." Well so what? Doesn't make it any less of an anime. I like FLCL, one of my 2 favorite animes, and I saw it first on adult swim. Oh that's just so wrong. It's not true anime if it's on adult swim? ANIME is ANIME. And it's so stupid for you guys to make such a big deal out of it. It's just a detailed cartoon.
