I have never been criticized, but I have not been able to convince my friends that Clannad is the greatest anime ever made....

Yeah, for watching Digimon Adventure, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, Pokemon, anything with monster. By my family members. But I honestly don't care.

They're probably gonna start criticizing me again when Monster Strike anime starts in October.

I have people who criticize me for simply watching anime, but then I realize how ignorant that is so it doesn't bother me, I just feel a bit pitiful for them.

My sentiments exactly. There are lots of material in anime that are as good as if not exceeds western media but I get a lot of flak for watching it.

...do we have the same friends? Or is this kind of ignorance universal? I kind of wonder what people in Japan have to say about Western Media.

Ofcourse, I was watching anime before and during the elitist genre phase of the fandom came up. I've been criticized for watching classics from Fist of the North Star, Bubblegum Crisis, and the first run of Evangelion to watching Haruhi for it being "too mainstream" by some prototype hipster.

Been criticized for watching fanservice filled anime too. Eh, I think I've gotten flak from different people for all of them.

I tell em all the same thing, fuck off. I never gave them flak for their favorites and I still won't criticize anyone for liking a certain anime even if I criticize the anime itself, they shouldn't do the same. Difference of opinion is part of the human experience.
