Whats your opinion of anime?

I have 3 friends into anime. Aside from Peach Girl (the English dub), im just not into anime. If people wanna watch it fine whatever. But i won't lie, its kinda a turnoff to me. My boyfriend is pissed at me cause he loves it and wants our son to be his mini-me and constantly game and watch anime too. And i was like, games on occasion but ugh i hope not anime, such a turnoff. So yup, he hung up on me 🙈😂 #FeelFreeToList #AnimeLovers

Thanks everyone for your answers. We’ll agree to disagree. But yes its a turnoff for me when my boyfriend thinks he has a future in becoming a ninja assassin like on his animes. I thought it was like cute roleplay at first but he's serious and i just can't take him seriously. Its like talking to a child sometimes. he's already asked if i’ll be his ride or die chick as he takes down bad guys. Its good he wants to save the world and have his Kill Bill moment (i love that movie) but i ain gonna date a killer

  • I HATE it! I have friends who watch it and they akways talk about it and play J Pop music. And he's now learning Japanese. What annoys me most is they think they're experts on Japanese culture.
    Also, honest observation. Most adults who are into Animae suffer from Aspergers or other developmental disorders. Like they have the minds of children.

  • I love it but there has to be a balance lol
    Some anime people live in their own bubble of anime fandom, to the point of headbands, fox tails, daily cos play, and quoting a line or pretending to be an anime character every other sentence.
    It is a fun world but not for everyone. I am the only family member into anime and some are too cheesy or strange.
    But its like anything one may love a lot. I think he should stop proposing it on you and kid like that.
    People who dont like anime are just as awesome as those who love it.
    He should embrace your likes and dislikes as well.

    • Yes thats why anime is a turnoff to me. he's lost himself

    • Awe poor guy. Anime / vid game world targets the imaginitive parts of our mind while stimulating various senses... like an intense vivid dream.

      Some people like the dream better than reality. He probably finds life mundane and boring, chasing after the fantasu

  • I never quizte understood the appeal of anime. But more importantly, I never understood the obsession a lot of people have with it. Some people seem like they can't tell it from reality anymore. lol

    • @MrNameless soap operas like days of our lives and passions and one tree hill are way more interesting

    • Okay maybe that explains it, because I also never understood the appeal of soap operas. They're usually poorly executed, acted, and written.

  • It’s not my cup of tea. I think the main reason why I don’t watch it is because of the stigma attached to it. Personally I think anime unintentionally gives the wrong impression of Japanese culture. Not saying there is anything wrong with anime or those who watch it.

  • Actually dear Dizzy, I used to watch anime years ago, like Saint Seya, Captain Tsubasa, Initial Drive, etc...
    Somewhere down the road of growing up I have stopped.
    Maybe few silly funny cartoons from time to time, but that's it.
    Lately, nickelodeon have been showing "The Loud Family". It is a cartoon with really short episodes, but it cracks me laughing out loud every time.
    It talks about a family, where the boy has 10 sisters. Imagine the mess and funny moments :-D

    • What do your current/past girlfriends think about you being into it?

    • Well she thought the same. It is nice from time to time, it is funny (regarding the loud family because I have stopped a long time ago watching the other ones)
      "the Loud Family" is a good cartoon for laughing, kind of tom & jerry :-P
      I would recommend it to you dear Desi.
      Check out first few episodes, they are like 15 minutes long
      Again, there is a difference between watching from time to time, and being obsessed !!! :-S

  • I used to watch anime quite a lot 3-4 years ago, and I did notice the perspective others had on it so I just kept it lowkey with the people that also watched anime. I found it pretty easy to just get deep into an anime since usually, the writers tend to add a lot of background to the characters and the whole situation as a whole, so it's kinda therapeutic and entertaining. Tho again, I keep it lowkey.

  • I find anime creepy and sometimes pretty disturbing. I haven't seen it much but the bits I have always seem a bit pedo or unnecessaryily sexual... Which isn't sexual it's a badly drawn cartoon.

    • Lol I don't know. I knew my boyfriend liked video games but i was shocked to see he was into anime

  • I dont get why anime is such a turn off its literally just japansnes cartoons and unlike most ameica cartoons the shows come with life lessons and really end up teaching you something. Now dont get obssessed with anything watch in moderation but id love to let my son or daughter grow up and watch some anime instead of the booty shaking and drama of tv

    • You did bash anime a couple times i saw in the commets and you said i sounded like your mom which is a comparison and i dont get why being super into anime is a turn off its something a lot of guys like and girls and I don't get the big turn off about it by whatever that is your opinion

  • I like certain anime really.. The normal average anime is where I don't like it too much.. But when the animation is beautiful, the story is good, and the characters are colorful and fully realized, anime can be the greatest thing really.. I think you need to watch a bit more anime before you decide you don't completely like it.. LOL..

  • Anime has different varieties for everyone. You just have to find the one for you.
    Although, Death Note is the only anime I can say that, anyone would enjoy regardless of their preferences.
    If, they are not into thrillers, that's a different case whatsoever.

  • I see absolutely nothing wrong with anime, I understand that's there is a stigma to anime and people peg it as some weird thing.

    But there are so many different genres that practically anyone can get into it, you just have to find what you want.

    like anything else just watch what you consider to be a educational and would be intriguing to your child if you're really concerned of its content.

  • Anime is a broad collecting of Japanese animation. I typically only like ones that really make you think with clever plots. I don't enjoy the spastic battle related ones or childish or super dirty ones. Some are really really deep. For example my pic is from Log Horizon.

  • I try it every now and again but it's soo shit! The stories are so boring and lame and always about teenage type love... BARF!!

    Don't get me wrong, love animation. Love Akira which is a manga from 1988 ... I think it's spoiled me with regards to anime/manga because it literally blows everything else out of the water. The rest is juvenile, badly written crap... and it all uses the same colour pallet, which is fine if you're a five year old girl into ballerinas...

    Funny thing is that some my friends obsessions with one particular show ( Yuri on Ice) had turned me off so much I don't bother so much anymore. Not unless the storyline and animation style genuinely grabs my attention.
    And I think that's the problem with subculture surrounding it - fandom take it a step too far.

  • I adore anime and know like 20 other amazing people who love it too. My college even has a club dedicated to anime fans.

    It’s fine to dislike anime since everyone has different tastes, but trying to change your boyfriends hobby isn’t okay. Instead, you should be happy for him that he has such a strong passion for it even if you don’t feel the same. Now, it’s not necessary for you to join him in watching anime, but at least respect his hobby and let him do his own thing.

    A relationship between two people of different hobbies can work out as long you’re willing to compromise and work things out.

    • I didn't change his hobby. I said i didn't want him encouraging our kids to watch it like he said he wants to do

    • Find a middle ground with him. Let the kids be exposed to it from time to time. That way you don’t have the kids being hardcore fans and you can still make him happy.

  • Anime is ok.
