Are you looked down on because of anime?
Posted 12/24/11
So, do you have realtives, friends or even co workers who critisized you because you like anime? Well, I don't go thru that before. I haven't before. But, on YouTube, there are a handful of anime haters. They say anything to make an anime watcher feel guilty. Putting them down. I think it has to do with a form of cultural war. I don't really care what they say and such. To me, anime is just entertainment. So, I don't need to be offended by what others may say. Everyone thinks different. When they critisize, I take it as a joke.

Well, don't watch anime or anything. However, I still don't criticize anyone for watching anime.

No.

My friends accept me for who I am. They wouldn't be my friends and I wouldn't be their friend if they look down upon me. Life is too short to hang around passive aggressive twats who mock you behind your back.

As for the haters on YouTube...The YouTube comment section is a cesspool of people with the intellectual agility of a small soap dish. Ignore them.

People call it a defining factor of my Asian qualities. Which is a little stereotypical, but I don't care.
I like this shit, and if people criticize me for it, that's they're problem; not mine.

Work alone and don't have any friends. Only leaves family and in that case it would be a no.

As for caring about what people (haters) on the internet think, never have and never will. If it bothered me I would have quit 15 years ago.

No not really. Where I live the Japanese have a big influence on the culture so anime is pretty much popular and I can talk about a few shows with a lot of people and get recommendations / recommend any anime maybe manga as well.

I can talk intelligently about Friendship is Magic. And I can discuss quite a few romance games. By comparison, about 3/4 of my anime-manga collection seems relatively ordinary.

But yeah, I'm also a person who's wondered if adults should like any forms of animation, comics, games, or even the internet. I know it seems ridiculous, but I have wondered if all I should do is read prose and watch serious films. This is an unrealistic attitude, so don't do what I've done.

i don't understand why they call it childish =.=

but i have close friends who accept me whoever i am, although they r sometimes a bit annoyed of that.
i guess in reality they thought of me as nerd, but as long as i can keep up other convo n be crazy, i dont rly care.

Nope, one of my friends keep calling me 'hentai freak' because I like drawing ecchi (which is not the same, so he's simply an idiot), but others are cool about it.

Not looked down on, or even a critique, but my friends think my appreciation for anime is strange. Some of my friends are bandwagon Lakers fans, and I think that's strange.

It's a fair tradeoff.

I don't remember but I don't think so.. I also don't give a *** if they look down at me because the fact that I watch anime. I mean, what is wrong with that? Everyone have watched cartoons before. Some old anime too, I guess. And I am just 13 years old so.. xD I don't have to drink and go party and such, ew disgusting... ASLKFDFJ. Those people pisses me off. However, I just go my own way and do what I want and like / dislike what I want. ^^ I've learned a lot of anime, manga, and such. So yeah, I am proud!~
