Because they're people.

Maybe they just don't know how to appreciate it.. Or they have misconceptions about it.
Before I got addicted to anime, I actually hated it because I thought anime was corny,all about violence, etc.. Then one time I was channel surfing and chanced upon naruto, and decided to give it a try. Then I was converted

people from my class keep saying they "hate" animes.

seriously, I did not ask for their opinion they suddenly make comments such as "Japan is weird" "Japan is nothing but hentai" "anime is perverted" "Anime is for kids"

and I'm all "So is Justin Beiber, bitch."

to sum it all up they really want to piss me off.

People don't tell me to my face that they hate something I like. Because they know what I'm capable of ...

Namely following them around and arguing with them for hours until they either admit they're wrong or never dare to do it again. Either way is fine with me.

As for why they hate it, in general, I really have no idea. A lot of people hate a lot of things they have no idea what are. People are afraid of what they don't understand, which is in human nature. So is smashing things we don't understand and/or hating them, unfortunately.

When someone states they don't like Anime I sit down and ask them exactly why they feel that way. Try to get them to talk seriously and not just spout non sensual hatred. I then get them to talk about what kinds of books and movies they tend to watch and figure out from there what is the best show to introduce them to. A lot of people changed their minds back when I would show them Cowboy Bebop, however Grave of the Fireflies is the best for convincing people that Anime is not childish cartoons with no artistic qualities.

I only do this for certain people, those who actually take a moment to actually learn a little about what exactly anime really is. Some just hate so much they can't be turned around. It is one of the arguments I now avoid on webcomic forums because they just won't talk intellectually and just rant and rave about how much they just hate it all. *sighs*

There's an old saying that I think represents this topic quite well. And that is, "Haters gonna hate".

From my experience, it's usually the fans, not the anime. And to be honest, I have to agree.
I've noticed that a lot of us anime fans tend to act like a bunch of raging dorks.

i know that some of my friends won't watch anime. first because i think they don't understand that it is funny. Second and this goes only for one of my freinds that have a hard time thinking that anime doesn't involve tentacles and stuff like that. he thinks that all anime have tentacles or something weird..... but he is also weird so...

Honestly, I was one of those people about 2 years ago, until my BF introduced me and now its pretty much all i watch. I think in America, at least, it has a "nerdy" stigma. I get weird looks all the time when I tell people that is what I watch. But i try my best to explain that its really just like any other movie/tv show....but alas, people dont believe me.....and think I am a nerd! And I am ok with that!

possibly due to that adults think that its "gay" well some parts of it are true if you watch yuri or yaoi but that mostly think that anime is a cult brainwashing us but it is really something that we use to fit in with some others if we do not fit in other areas like me i am a ballet dancer in TEXAS the most gruff red neck filled place there is i think full of men who thnk you have to lift a car to be tough but i fit in with a few male dancers and quite a few anime fans and i even have made two of my friends anime fans by having them watch or read soul eater so we are cool and we are awsome so be proud that you are a anime fan!

They don't understand it... A lot of people that I talk to about anime have never truly given it a try or found one that's just amazing... I had some really close friends that weren't into anime but they trusted me and my judgement so they tried out Code Geass and Death Note and have since been watching anime..

simple.. they're a bunch of not open-minded idiots, judging things right away without even knowing..
they're stupiid.. says what they want with no actual basis.. they think anime's for li'l kids,
well they should think again, if ever they are indeed really thinking.. anime is not only for those li'l brats..
anime is way complicated than that.. how can those puny kids comprehend with the complexities of most animes..

I haven't met anyone who hates Anime... some just like it more than others. I mean, c'mon...you can always find someone who loves either Dragon Ball or Sailor Moon no matter where you are.
