Speaking as an ex hardcore anime hater I would say it's basic ignorance of how awesome anime actually is. Dub does not help to improve the image of anime either. I grew up watching certain episodes of pokemon and gundam on TV and all I could think was "WHAT IS THIS FUCKERY THAT THE GUYS ARE SO INTO" Also people can find a lot to make fun about 2D characters rofl.

Got into an intense angry match with my friend before falling in love with anime. She got so upset at me she almost cried because anime was her everything.

Anime is an art, it can be very deep, it can be very shallow. As with books it ranges from fantastic to craptastic so really the reason why people think all anime sucks is ignorance and close mindedness.

Most of the people I know who do not like anime are those who have never even tried watching a single anime or find it rather childish. I often know of someone who calls them cartoons, which they are very different from. Nonetheless, people are subject to their own beliefs. As for me, I've always like anime. I've always had anime crushes. ^_^

It's something they don't understand and that's basically what we're taught to do: hate things that don't make sense. I got more grief from my stepfather because they were 'just' cartoons to him that only elementary kids watch. It was difficult to explain how different Japanese animation was from American animation. And of course the rest of my family doesn't understand it and wished I wouldn't, but they're not against it. Hell, my uncle dislikes me for watching it because he's gotten into it somewhat.

I can echo most of the sentiment here.
Most of the people I know that hate anime or just don't like it, do so because they think of it as cartoons, or porn, or like some people have said, "the fans themselves".

The other thing is that many anime shows deal with "eastern" religious ideas that many people in the west find alien, mostly because they were raised in Christian homes and don't really know much about their own faith. You'd be surprised how much superstition gets mixed into people's beliefs. That gets back to what has been said about people disliking or hating what they do not understand.

Also some shows take western religious views and mold them to their storyline. You only have to watch Neon Genesis Evangelion or Haibane Renmei to see a ton of Christian ideas and superstitions woven into the stories, and some people find that offensive.

Why do people hate it? Well because its just the opinion of that person. If you were to show some one an anime, they would just think its a cartoon and it would take time for them even to except it wasn't (like some people said). Also some just will never except the fact that its nothing more then a cartoon which is just labeled a show for little kids. No matter what, in the end its just the other person image of it that affects how they react to it.

-Some people think it's all children's series
-Some people think it's all fighting and card games
-Some people think that the only ones in existance are ones aimed at pedophiles (Ones of this kind which people just LOVE pulling up are School Days, Aristotte's Toy, schoolgirl hentai, and even the dreaded Boku no Pico, stating that these are representitive of all Japanese series, rather than picking safe stuff like Ghibli movies)
-Some people just get sick of others who label it as "anime" and nothing else. I do get frustrated at these labelers myself because of this.
-Oh, and some just flat out don't like these things.

Ehh ... more like my brother doesn't get it. "How come you still like cartoons?" The animated medium is a hard sell but I picked an anime movie everyone could relate to and made them all watch it >:-D (summer Wars) now they leave me alone.

Because sometimes the fans make it nerdy.
I'M a huge fan but I try to keep it on the down low, not to say i"m ashamed of my hobby, BUT anime technically is a "cartoon". I'm perfectly fine telling someone that I like anime, but I make it perfectly clear that you shouldn"t judge me based on what other people do or say.

They're just unappreciative and not open to different ideas. That's what I've learned from my experiences.

I think no matter where you look you will find people who hate something. Almost every hobby or enjoyment has its share of haters.
