    I don't really mind all that much as everyone has their own tastes, but what bugs me more is when people like anime but prefer dubs. I honestly can't imagine nor understand why anyone would do that to themselves... the only arguments I've ever seen is that they can actually understand dubs and they think dubs sound better... both are rather ridiculous to me as the native Japanese voice always sounds better (coughNarutodubcoughPokemondub).

    I used to get upset if someone disliked it, but now I don't care as much. I learned that everyone is entitled to their own opinions and there is nothing that we can do about it, whether we like it or not. My mom still refers to all anime as "Sailor Moon" because I was obsessed with that anime when I was younger, I don't hate on her for saying that, I just die of laughter because she's been saying it since I was 4

    well, i do mind if people dislike anime. but it's better not to meddle with them. we'll get used to it anyway.
    people in my country dislike anime because they think that ALL anime (yes, ALL) are perverted. i have no idea what they are thinking. but this is just what they say to me when they know i like anime. they'll say 'eww.. you watch hentai?' or 'i hate anime. it's so perverted' or 'anime is so childish' what???
    they say anime is perverted, yet they can still add on it's childish. it just doesn't make sense.

    I do not mind if people do not like Anime. That is as long as they have really watched it and are not just makings snap judgements. I do not want people telling me what i should or should not like. As a result, I will not tell others or be mad at them for not having the same interests.

    Not many anime series are truly mature. It's either kids/teens series or series marketed at yong adults that are incredibly childish in their ways (any harem show, for example). So that's one of the reasons why I don't mind if people dislike it; after all, we all have our tastes.

    In my experience, most people who dislike it are unfamiliar with anime.

    Every now and then, I'll watch an anime where the characters are outrageously weird in some way. Anime's with ecchi for instance, are not really appealing unless you are familiar with it. I've known several people who completely shoot down anime because they were exposed to something (like ecchi), and they just couldn't get over the strangeness of Japan's culture.

    It really just depends on what show you are first introduced to. Shows like Naruto, DragonBall Z, Digimon, or Pokemon are like a bridge between western and eastern cultures. I started with those, and really worked my way into the more "eastern anime" (which really is just subjective to me). Honestly, I think that watching non-anime shows are a waste of time. It's kinda funny how that is switched around.

    I won't lie it does not bother me much when people dislike any anime I watch. The reason I feel this way, is because I know they do not understand what they are missing out on. They really don't know any better in my opinion.

    I can't understand why some people would dislike anime. There are just plenty out there to fit what you specifically like. If you like love with a some comedy then you there is anime you can watch. The varieties range to the "frowned upon" animes.

    Some people are just not into anime! But I've noticed something really weird... I noticed most of my closest friends are anime fans I don't know if it's just a coincidence, or if the people who watch anime have certain personality traits that lead us to like watching anime, but the people I get along really well with are anime fans as well. Seriously! My best friends are and we get along so well!

    I honestly don't mind when people dislike anime, I mean it's up to them weather they like it or not.As long as they aren't too negative about it then yeah, I'm fine with it. However, if there's one thing I hate, it has to be when someone mistakes anime for a cartoon and begins to brag about how terrible the "cartoon" is.

    I don't mind if someone isn't interested in anime. Individuals have their preferences. I do mind if they are outright hostile towards it (and anime watchers).

    I think a good response is that anime is not a genre but a medium. Anime can have many genre (romance, horror, thriller etc), but its merely a medium of conveying a message across. It could be pretty adult too (in a non-hen way as in)
