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
Berzerk
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.




u are 18? get over it he is u brother he has his opinian nobody force u to watch anime ...u like it he dosent ...this is life....i have 2 sister and a bother none of them likes anime...i dont give a dam to be honest im surprised u are making a tread cuz of this ....again i dont give a dam everybody is free to like or not to like if he talks bad just ignore him u are not doing something illegal but i think u need to grow up a litlle if this is a problem with u? yes there are allot of people out there who hates animes.....so? not my bussines is not a war if u know what i mean oh and if he has coclusion like that maybe he needs to grow up more then that ....oh and btw i will love it if i was a japonesse a samurai i think lol

P.S. like a paradox when i was litlle me with my family ( brother,sister , mother and father ) we all watched sailor moon there were times when my sister cried at that anime my brother was in love with usaghi lol but people change ...that includes me too i dont like all anime ........grow up nice and no war in u family

i think what your friend means is 'wapanese' or 'weeaboo'. real japanese people wouldn't obsess over half the things you would. and id like to sell you a sack of shit with the label 'made in japan' on it. methinks you'd buy.

yea. . . if ur brother only saw that few of animes im sorry doesnt even have the right to like anime


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



about that anime watching is all about experience. i mean if he saw only how ever many on the list. err... i wouldnt say list more like a scribble then he hasnt even seen the whole plots or story lines behind an anime.


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.


Exactly though, and I will quote from you.
"You watch anime. Anime, you watch. Y-O-U W-A-T-C-H A-N-I-M-E. That's all."

He didn't watch those, therefore he can't put that judgement upon those specific anime titles.

Well, first of all, I refuse to tell someone they can't like what they like, but I am somewhat surprised by the LAST one in this list. The rest mostly struck me on a quick read as being from about the same time period and all with similar styles/feels to them. Put simply, they're all basically "cult films" which are considered "must-watches".


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.

Well, I hate GITS, and I too think Miyazaki is overrated, but I don't think something being overrated automatically means it's bad. (Death Note is an exception here.) That being said, it's up to him what he likes and dislikes.



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

Great Teacher Onizuka
Berzerk
Hellsing
Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis
Paprika

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."

Well, condemning it without watching it DOES lead me to wonder (esp. given his choice of favorites) whether he's just following a certain "group thought". I would love to know his rationale for Metropolis or Hellsing. The rest all strike me as "taste" type animes (many of them are fairly ecchi, and not really similar to what he's mentioned as liking) but Hellsing is basically a descendant of Vampire Hunter D and Metropolis is one of the classics of anime.


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."

This is your OLDER brother? As in, over 18? If he's whipping out insults like this, I think, personally, that he needs to grow up.


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.

The subtitled vs. dubbed controversy will go on forever. Obviously if he's only willing to watch old-school anime in English, he's going to miss out on a large quantity of very good anime. Really, rather than feeling angry or upset, you should pity the poor man for the fact that his highly restrictive tastes are keeping him from enjoying the series that you do.
However, taste is subjective, and what you like is up to you. Really, he should just grow up and accept that. Tell him he's welcome to his opinion, and you'd be glad to discuss it with him, but not while you're watching anime. Tell him that if he's going to have his opinion, he should take it somewhere else with him.
And that's about all the advice I've got.

*And those people who're saying he simply likes anime from Adult Swim, like that's a bad thing, I've never seen Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter D or Akira on Adult Swim. And I don't believe that Adult Swim is bad. It's how a lot of anime fans got into it in the first place.
