and i can't stand people who say mangas.
that sir does not exist that word is just made up by fans/readers that don't know it's just manga volumes.



Look for the people that call anime manga the best explanation is the fact that it looks like a comic book but instead it thicker and has less frames.
So before going on a rant about the fact you can't stand people who call them comic books start by looking at yourself.

calling other people idiots while you're one yourself.

don't make a big deal out of nothing or we could start a topic like

WHY ARE THERE IDIOTS THAT STILL SAY MANGAS WHILE IT IS MANGA VOLUMES!!!!



i speak french and thats how we say it where i come from..so later!! btw im a girl u jerk!!



1. Manga volumes is universal mangas does not exist in the world it's like 1 word for one thing universal but here it's more like 2 words.

2. your probly never seen the movie Good Burger and never heard of the phrase : I'm a dude, He is a dude,, She's a dude, Where al dudes. wich means i use the dude reference to everyone.

even a girl or boy.

3. Is it hard to say something without calling names???
first we are all idiots now when someone talks back at you he's called a jerk

Well let me put it this way do you rather prefer :

a: dude
b:Idiot
c: Bitch (because that is more gender pointed)

reminder i still haven't called you bitch yet so if you report this then report your own post first.

Nobody called anyone a bitch. And no one said we should be nice. And you arent being kinda mean to people who don't understand the concept of manga?

If its common sense to be polite, then you seem to not be using it. It is clear to see since you made this thread and that you just called me an idiot (for what, expressing my opinion?)

well 1st ur arguin about somethin which wasnt adressed to u. a guy clearly called me a bitch on this forum and the coment i made later was addressed to him. so sorry for being rude to u, but you have to admit that this situation is a little upseting!! u basically called me a liar..though it may have been unintentional!

It doesn't really bother me as much as I thought it would. At least they're not calling it "picture books."

They're not idiots. They just don't know the word "manga". So they call them "comics". It's not such a bad thing.

Yes, but you call them idiots! There's no reason to insult them just because they don't know what manga is!

I have to agree with you.
I also can't stand the people who calls an anime : a cartoon. like I can call Tom& Jerry or another one, an anime. or like Bleach, for example is as the same level as Avatar. anyway..... when something comes from another country and has a different look and level, to call that thing same as the things in your country is so wrong. anyway.... manga and anime are Different things..... and just by the fact that they are coming from Japan. and next is the Quality of these 2, which is waaay better and way mature. but you know... you have to be a real fan to see that, and to know that.

It bugs me too. Ignorance is not a virtue! Refusal to get it right is just damn dumb.


I agree with your statement. Especially as applied to people who don't know 'you' is a three letter word.

I have to disagree with you. The term "movie" or 'film' covers a wide variety of theatre experiences. No one at the Cannes Film festival feels obliged to call movies from American 'hollywoodies' or whatever. Here in North America 'anime' has come to have this imperfectly defined association with an art style or a national origin. Great! saying 'Anime' is a lot faster than saying 'Imported Japanese Cartoons'. The problem with your complaint as I understand it is that you have put value judgements on those terms.

In your mind: Cartoon = childish western crap, While Anime is a great art form. So of course, you are insulted when someone calls your great artform crap. But that's not what they're saying it's what your thinking based on the value judgement you've put on the words. If you get over yourself a little, then it's really no big deal.

The above notwithstanding I'm sure that there ARE people who are just ignorant (in both meanings of the word) and refuse to acknowledge the subtle differences between different animation genres. I'm sure such philistines can't appreciate a movie without a certain quota of sex and explosions. What do you actually care what such a nimrod thinks of what matters to you anyway?
