    Default Do You Mind When People Dislike Anime?

    In your experience what do people say as reasons when they dislike anime? And does it bother when people don't appreciate your anime passion? Just like video games, some people think it's a waste of time and energy, other people may think anime is silly. My mom can't even tell the difference and calls everything children's cartoon.

    ignorance/misinfomation is what i don't like people who dislike anime as a whole.

    but can't be help.. thanks to the culture that usually associate/attached to it
    weeaboos, obsessive watching, otakus who seems out of touch with reality.

    but since nowadays nearly everything can be seemingly 'marketed' to both adult and children
    its kinda weird that people (working adults) who like certain things, which are most likely marketed at children~teens
    can say anime are childish/for children/immature without blinking...

    I don't really, I don't. But it's gets really annoying when my friends CONSTANTLY says they hate anime just for the fact that they want to piss me off, more so when one of them is an anime lover too. *sighs* what can I say?

    I do not mind, everyone has different taste. I dont like it when they scold me for being too old for anime though.

    If someone doesn't like anime I'm completely fine with it, even if they refuse to try it. I see no reason to force my likes and/or dislikes upon them. In the past, I've dealt with people who tried to force things onto me that I wasn't interested in. I found it to be very irritating, so I try not to do that. That being said, you can't judge every Japanese cartoon just because it's drawn in a certain style. Saying, "I don't like anime because this one I watched sucked," is like saying, "I hate movies now because that one was really bad." It's not just a genre, it's much more than that.

    I don't mind it when people dislike anime. It's their business, after all However, I do tend to think that they probably haven't found the right series yet. Anime can be very diverse, there are many genres and I believe that everybody can enjoy anime, because there really is something for everybody! Some people think that anime is just moe meidos, everything is overly kawaii and they don't give it a try. It's a pity!
    Make your life colorful!

    I don't have a problem with people who don't like anime. I like what I like and it doesn't matter what they say. I work with this guy who knows nothing about anime, but he says he hates it. I asked him how he can haye something he has never seen before. He told me he just thinks it's weird so he doesn't watch it. That's some pretty messed up logic.

    It doesn't bother me if people do not like anime. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and it really depends on what the person grew up around. For example, being with brothers and sisters who watched anime shows will probably mean that they will grow up to like it too.

    Otherwise, someone who has never watched these types of shows may think that they are ridiculous. Actually, I thought the same thing until I noticed my husband watching these shows. My original thought that he was stuck in a ten year old's body, watching anime as a way to escape reality. When I joined him in watching the show, I became interested in it. Now here I am, addicted to anime although I've never seen it as a child.

    I really don't mind it when people admit their dislike for anime. Everyone has their own view on what constitutes good entertainment. However, people who choose to become rude and disdainful irritate me. Somehow, the things that they love to do or watch are perfectly fine. Anime is considered childish or 'crap' by these people.

    In this one chat I was in, someone said they hated all anime. That comment came across as kinda arrogant, because I can't think of anything that would warrant a blanket hatred of all anime. There's too much variety, so there's something for almost anyone.
