Reasons anime is a guilty pleasure to me.
TV Anime is a lot of convention. They animate for the cheapest cost, reusing drawings, many holds, a mouth flapping on a still face that's supposed to be talking. The use specific camera shots so they don't have to animate. Everything looks similar.

As an animator, lots of reasons to dislike anime, but there are a few reasons to like exceptional anime. The story lines. Brad Bird, an animation director at Pixar loves Miyazakii's films for the stories.

most of people i know think that anime is childish..because they think that it´s just a cartoon....it is unrealistic so they hate it even they didn´t try it and they wouldn´t...and other reason is because it is japanese...so they imagine some strange slant-eyed creatures.....but i don´t care about it..they can regret not watching anime..... I love anime!!!

People who don't like anime have no souls. Well they do, just that, they shouldn't say there opinion aloud, *sigh* people, just don't know what others live for... I think... Oh god I'm confused. D:

Because of all the 'tards or fanboys/girls or those japanophiles out there, it gives people the wrong impression, add to the fact the long fight sequences, the bad dubbing, the hentai, the yuri and the yaoi and at times weird ass, or annoyingly stupid love triangles....then you can see why people with limited exposure, with what they know or have viewed will dislike it.

The other thing is, anime is basically cartoons. Western view of cartoons is its for kids. Of course you got some exceptions. But thats how they are widely viewed.

Also people who get the hump about people not liking anime also piss of people....

Well, it's not perfectly acceptable in Japan. People that watch anime in Japan get made fun of too. They're kinda viewed how Star Wars fans are viewed here. People don't like anime sometimes because of the fans. Other people say they don't like anime because they don't want to become a crazy fan or don't want people to think of them as that. Mostly, it's the obsessive otaku and fanboy types that have people disliking anime. Also, they could simply be racist and not like the fact that it's Japanese. Then there are the people who see one anime and if they don't like that, they don't like any of them.These are only a few reasons and I'm positive there's a lot more out there.

It is important to remember that anime is a medium, not a genre, and some people may not like the medium of anime. Unlike say cartoons, anime storylines tends to be linear and plot focused, while cartoons tend to be nonlinear and focus on events only within that episode. For people with short attention spans, they may not like anime.
Another possible point to remember is that as a medium, some people may dislike the qualities of the medium. Bright colored hair may not appeal to people who dress conservatively. Anti-military may despise mecha. Religious peoples may not like gainaxing (the bouncing of the breasts). There are elements within anime that can turn people off.
A third thing to remember is that what will determine like or hate will be exposure. If I had been exposed to nothing but Naruto, Excel Saga, and Love Love?, I would have disavowed anime as sheer and utter crap. I was instead exposed to series such as Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, and Inuyasha. Odds are, they watched an episode or so of anime that thoroughly turned them off to the idea, just like eating a Cheeto that gives you food poisoning may turn you off to all other brands of cheesy poofs.
We should also note that some people consider cartoons (or any form of animation) to be for children. Here in America, there aren't many notable cartoons for purely adult tastes. Give it some time, and the idea that anime/cartoons are childish will disappear.
Of final note, you can be a fan of anime without be obsessed with it. I may watch my fair share of anime, but I don't spend five minutes writing posts about how it'd be awesome if Zero from Code Geass and Haruhi Suzumiya had babies who would proceed to take over the world as our supreme overlords. There is fandom, and there is obsession. Please, drink the KoolAid with moderation.

heard quite a few reasons: childish, only about boobs, no story line, no special effects, and the list goes on... most of the things are just because they havn't really seen any... as an example i was seeing some anime in when some guys go to me critizising it... but kept on watching after about an hour i turned it of and all ten left at that time.. not a moment before...
