I am looked down because I don't watch/want to watch it. I stopped because, really, it hinders one's ability to get anatomy down and the fans/storylines irked me. Ironic.

Um actually anime is the Japanese way of saying cartoon (its also a abbreviation of animation). People can boost their ego all they want, but other people aren't wrong if they call it cartoon. Lastly manga means comic/graphic novel (pick your poison).

Anyways back to topic.

No I was never looked down upon for watching anime (probably because I'm such an awesome anime/manga closet fan). As a matter of fact I'm actually the one who's looks down on anime now (still a fan of manga though). Don't want to keep beating a dead horse, so lets just say the old trends and new trends that anime continue to abuse aren't to my liking.

Yes, whenever I have an argument with my dearest mother she shouts at me for "watching stupid cartoons".

Well For Your Information My Friend... I Consider Anime More Intense Then A Simple Cartoon... More Mature People Watch Anime Anyways.... And The Way They Would Say it Made It Seem Childish.... Anyways! Thanks For Your Smart Remark Though... I Will Admire it... lmfao

My friend used to make fun of me for being an otaku, but all it takes is the right series. I told him to watch bleach. It only took one episode to get him to stop and now he is watching tons of other series as well.

Yes!!
Because I am the only one at my school that knows what anime is.
Only 2 of my friends like anime and they go to different schools.
So i have no one to stand by me.

I think people focus too much on the fact that its a 'cartoon' and immediately think its childish.

I appreciate anime mostly for the visual style, but moreso for the story telling. There's a lot of dark, edgey stuff out there that most traditional 'american' cartoons wouldn't ever dare touch.

only within the last few years are we starting to see shows adopt the more serious story telling and have ACTUAL character developement.

although western shows have been stealing the visual aspect and animation tricks for quite a while (not to say they are bad, I personally feel its for the better)

No. I watch more darker themed anime though so maybe that's why. My friends don't really want to get into it all that much because they say it's 'anime'.

My friends like me for who I am and I actually have 3 friends who I watch anime and even share hentai with...
One of my cousins looks down upon me for watching anime but he is a cultural chauvinist and religious fanatic i.e. a crazy person...
My little sister doesn't like to watch anime but she doesn't hate it... She has watched InuYasha and Rurouni Kenshin and liked them both...
