Why does it concern you so much? We're all entitled to our own opinions. It's just personal preference. We all have our different likes and dislikes.

Years ago, I was very hostile to anime. It seemed foreign and weird. I always assumed it was just for hipsters. My opinion eventually (and thankfully) changed and that's how I ended up here.

I guess they just don't have a childhood. Well, they have this misconceptions that Anime are just for kids. They thinks its kinda weird for Young adults to get hooked with it because they expect them to be matured and not stuck to things that are unreal. Then why do they watch Twilight anyways?

Hmmm, I guess everyone has their own preferences. We can't force them to like Anime if they have no interest to it. If they think its uncool? Then let them be. Anime isn't about being cool and being IN. It's about how you can enjoy watching it.

The notion of "hating" anime is a big misunderstanding.
The word "Anime" is the short spelling for the word "Animation". When America/England began introducing english into Japan the words were shortened/modified so it can be transcribed into Japanese script like katakana for example. Animation --> Anime or Vanilla --> Banira or Class --> Kurasu are some examples.
There is very little hate against domestic animations (Walt Disney, Warner Brothers, Pixar, DreamWorks) but the hate is more focused on foreign animations (Geneon, Bandai, Viz Media, Studio Ghibi).
Anime has been stigmatized as being childish, immature, anti-social, fetish in some way, virtual reality to name a few.
I believe the majority of the hate against anime is stemmed from the fan bases of certain anime titles (Bleach, Inu Yashi, Pokemon, Naruto) but North America has fan bases like that as well (Star Trek, Star Wars, works from DC Comics) and those domestic fan bases are hated as well.
The hate around anime, particularly foreign anime, is a problem that was partially created from the fan bases of a handful of anime fan bases.
This is why the stigma against anime exists in North America but there will always be haters of something so do not get depressed over it.

In Japan you can have elderly & adult citizens that still watch anime & read manga. The same goes for North America!
If you enjoy anime during your childhood then I do not see a reason to quit all because you became an adult. I loved playing video games, card games, certain physical activities when I was a child so why do I have to surrender those activities all because I am an adult?
The way I see this problem is that if there were hobbies in my childhood that I enjoyed & kept me young then I should have every right to continue those hobbies into my personal life as an adult.
For the anime haters, let them hate because I hypothesize that they enjoy some activities that you will find displeasing & probably you will hate them for that.
In conclusion, DO NOT GET DEPRESSED OVER IT & just say WHATEVER! It matters what you want, not what they (the haters) want!
Cheers.

Anime is fine but when you take anything to extremes it tends to be looked down upon by others. Plus some shit just is plain weird like "mysterious girlfriend x." I don't know anyone who hates anime...I know people who are not interested but not hate it.

I hate the perverted and weird for the sake of weird part of it. I pick my anime wisely but still the occasional "wtf?" moment will happen. Spontaneous butt sex or something -__-

Also some fans are just plain crazy.

I love anime but there's a bloody limit y'know

There are always some who hate it and I guess it's because they didn't watch it in their childhood.
People who watched anime as they were young tend to watch anime more, ... maybe only my experience.

In my class there are many who like anime but don't admit it and make fun of it. I bet in yours there are too.
Well noone ever said he likes anime but I have a good intuition xD

I think the people who "hate" anime probably have never watched it before and think just because they don't speak english in it, its weird. It's not weird cuz its from Japan

Lets see... from past experiences I've gotten things like:

They're stupid childish cartoons.

They're from Japan, therefore they suck and they're weird.

They look weird (Have to big of heads, eyes, weird hair, etc.)

Anime fans are too nerdy and weird (the 'weird' part is mostly true ^.^)

Probably a similar reason why some people dislike beer. We're all wired differently. Dislike anime = their loss.

I don't know exactly why people hate anime but I fine with it since I have my likes and they their dislikes. Although I don't like that my teacher pointed out that 90% of anime is porn, he said it because my friends and I were talking close to him. I just didn't like that comment, I just don't like people making prejudice accusations on anything especially if it's part of my life.


Don't worry about it. I'm pretty sure that more than 90% of all live action recordings are porn.
