How are there people out there that don't like anime? How can someone dismiss an entire category of storytelling so easily without a second thought?
>>
In fairness, most of it is shit
>>
Why are you asking /a/?
>>>/r9k/
>>
>>151797907
The same way /a/ justifies calling cartoons a completely different word just because gooks not only were drawing pictures, but also writing them.
>>
Because most people are exposed to animation that is primarily for children and cannot make the distinction later on.
>>
>>151797907
It's hard to deny that most of it is extremely generic.
>>
>>151798411
I cringe less at the genericness of anime than I do action movies, and I've seen way more anime than action movies.
>>
>somebody finds out you enjoy watching the occasional anime
>instantly assumes you're a pedophile weeb with countless body pillows and other sexual anime merchandise
weebs ruined it.

>/a/ justifies calling cartoons a completely different word
>/a/
Anon, we did not invent the word "anime," nor does almost anyone anywhere have an issue with the use of the term.

How are there people out there that don't like traps? How can someone dismiss an entire gender so easily without a second thought?
>>
>>151798411
I deny this and it wasn't hard
>>
>>151798805
>denial doesn't get him hard
You sure you're doing all right? Need to see a doctor or something? Maybe read Sundome again and see if that helps?
>>
>>151798609
This this and this again. Nobody who doesn't want watch anime will never take anime seriously when the first thing that pops in to their head is a fat dribbling idiot who mispronounces every Japanese word he tries to say and only watches anime that contains very young girls acting in a sexual manner. Voluntarily telling them you like anime is just going to ruin any chance of a potential friendship with most people.

Kill yourself normalfags.

>>151798942
i watch anime you degenerate. i'm talking about normalfag's assumptions on me and other anime watchers when they find out you like anime.
>>
>>151798609
>make friends with retarded /v/irgins and redditors
>they shitpost IRL whenever anyone near them sincerely enjoys things
What did you expect?
>>
>>151797907
It's just virtue signalling by normalfags trying to convince other normalfags that they're the most normal. You probably don't want those people to watch anime anyway.
>>
>>151798985
i'm not talking about /v/irgins and redditors, i'm talking about actual normal people, people you work with or see out on the street or went to school with. loli shit is the first thing that pops in their head when they hear the word "anime". either that or dbz/naruto and they assume you have the mental age of an eight year old.
>>
In the same way weeaboos automatically think all anime is good just because it is anime.
>>
Anime is getting more and more normalfags friendly actually or at least thats what the west is trying to do.

Look at this cancer video for example. Being a weeb is the hotness nerdy thing now.
>>
>>151797907
The horrific facsimiles of human behavior are the turn off for the vast majority of neurotypical would be anime viewers.
>>
>>151799197
This must have been a few years ago, most people don't seem to give a shit if you watch anime now and probably even watch some themselves
>>
>>151799363
It was around two years ago. Anime has just become more and more popular on normie social networks too and loli images are never too far away from a normies timeline, especially on Twitter. Once you like or retweet one anime picture, you just get flooded with new followers and 90% of them are ERP accounts and you can tell they're owned by 14 year olds, so you get tarred with the same brush.
>>
Most people just have a preconception about it.
It was the same way with comic books and shit like Star Trek until someone figured out there was money to be made there. Same thing will happen with anime.

Reminder that everyone who say normie is a normalfag in denial.
>>
Why does OP even care if people don't like anime? Isn't that a good thing?
>>
>>151800259
OP is one of those people who have love-hate relationships with normalfags.

On one hand, he thinks he's superior to normalfags for watching chinese cartoons because that means he has more shit to enjoy.

But on the other hand he feels that if normalfags start liking anime, it's becoming "ruined" because it's pandering to regular people instead of otaku.

He wants to feel superior.

Because the consensus is "It's kiddie shit." and people just think its cute little girls and stuff without giving it a chance.
>>
>>151797907
Thats a good thing you know.
>>
>>151797907
It has to do with your lack of production values.

Anime animation is incredibly shitty and cheap, focusing heavily on dialogue, using nearly indistinguishable faces, relying on bad dubbing and terrible English translations overseas.

You might as well ask someone why they don't like live action puppet shows.
>>
Most people associate anime with hentai.
>>
>>151799632
Comic books are still seen as manchild trash.

And God help you if you prefer non-superhero comic books. Normies don't know you exist, and other comic-readers want nothing to do with you.
>>
>>151797907
They're normalfags. And honestly, it's better that they don't taint the almost innocent openness of anime. It would be much worse if they start buying anime like a bunch of self righteous faggots and influencing people to cater to their retarded western "sensibilities". They'd remove the fun feeling of anime that is never quite comical and never quite serious, and always just a little bit lewd.

I'm glad normalfags hate anime. Better that they reject it than try to assimilate it.
>>
>>151797907
probably the same reason you never gave theater a chance after noticing all the "weirdos'' that swooned over it in high school
>>
As an American, I got into anime back in the early 90's. Hardly any white people watched anime back then, it was practically unheard of. It was really kind of an underground phenomenon in the white middle class suburbs, you had to be "in-the-know".

Then the fucking internet exploded and now anime is fucking everywhere.
>>
Anime is really a "young adult" genre. Its when you're too old to enjoy kiddie shit but not old enough to enjoy truly grown up things, like literature and art.
>>
Its the same thing with movies. They are really after that 18-25 demographic.
>>
>>151802688
there were always exceptions, like "transformers" or "robotech", but that shit was always on at like 6oclock in the morning, or 3 in the afternoon, before you got home from school.
>>
When I first saw ninja scroll I flipped my shit, I thought it was the most awesome thing ever. You just couldn't show that kind of thing on TV back then.
>>
>>151802748
that's overly simplistic for several reasons
nice bait though
>>
>a entire category

Animation is a entire category, anime is just a part of it
>>
When I first saw F3, I was like, "You mean there are other people into this kind of kinky shit? People who don't like pornos?"
>>
>>151802879
Not him but he is right that if you don't get into anime during your YA phase you're probably not going to check it out later on when your tastes have matured somewhat.

Just like you can't show someone Berman's Persona as the first film they ever watch and expect them to enjoy it, you can't show someone Angel's Egg or Ping Pong and expect them to "get it." You need a gateway
>>
>>151803421
I think you're overestimating the entry level
the biggest step is getting over the fact that its "foreign'' and that its animated
Then again, I'm not speaking about just shounen shows either
>>
>>151797907
Animation is relegated by the general public, I'm sure there are people who have written about this in greater detail

By and large, it's for children to watch on their own, family friendly entertainment you go to the theaters for or crude, simplistic nonsense you catch on evening or late night TV.

It is sad how little it has seemed to progress in the public's eye and it's part of why there seems to be such stagnation.
>>
>>151797907
What's worse is how watching capeshit and other pixar/disney kids movies is socially acceptable by normal adult, but if they find out out you're watching anime "why are you watching childresn cartoons anon????"
>>
>>151802607
theatre is fucking gay
>>
>>151803421
If someone's really into film they'll probably enjoy Angel's Egg
>>
>>151797907
It's simple: The fanbase is cancer.
>>
>>151797997
yes. There is NO difference between the Japanese style of traditional animation and contemporary American rig systems

Do you watch mexican telenovelas because you don't want to dismiss an entire category of storytelling without a second thought?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqafUjJUPP8
You don't find this kind of forced drama in anime so you should watch them.
>>
>>151797907
Beats me. I know someone who actively goes out of his way to avoid watching anime and never gives a reason why. When I describe a series to him, he usually seems interested at first, but the moment I say it's an anime, he immediately dismisses it as shit. It's like he hates it on principal.
