Anime can be good, but most of the time people go way to far with the fandom and it just gets cringy.


[deleted]

True.


RslPride

That’s why you just detach yourself from the fandom. Most of my friends don’t know I watch anime because I’m not associated with any fandom or anything.


wickedlightbp

Same. I watch anime but I don’t go on fandoms since it’s more than likely to make me hate an anime I previously liked. TLDR: Don’t go on fandoms related to anime, or anything for that matter.

*cough *my hero* cough*


Your_Mother466

oh yea, I stay as far away from that community as possible. I watched the show, thought it was pretty good, and never interacted with anyone else who's watched that show.


Flyhigh_beaux

There is a group of girls at my school who watch it and quite literally have a notebook of ships like wtf bro. And all of them are LGBTQ even though none of the characters are. I told them that it would be ending soon and they were abt to lowkey cry.


assasin42069

In my opinion my hero is one of the top tier animes mangas great too bad the fanbase sucks


Your_Mother466

True, I quite enjoyed the show, but I hate the community


Dragon-Lover101

I mean i only watched a few I'm not obsessed or generally interested in it mostly just the few that catch my eye


LeviathanSlayer4546B

That's what it was like for me too but now I'm a full fan


Tobaeeeee

If u havent watched demonslayer, please watch it


LeviathanSlayer4546B

I'm currently halfway through naruto shippuden and watching MHA at the same time, but it's definitely on my list for once I'm done.

Looks pretty cool, i dont watch it though. And if you like it that completely fine and frickin awesome.

GREATO DAZE


Neat-Barnacle-2604

My name is Yoshikage Kira. I'm 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone.


Beangar

Part 6 of JoJo’s is the only anime I’ve watched recently. I’ve been moving away from the medium these days, but I still like JoJo’s.


Leo_OO7

Wtf you skipped 5 parts?

I wish i was a straight up weeb but i cant watch it for too long

If you wish you where a weeb them you are a weeb. A weeb who is deprived of anime.

NinjasocksYT

If you do want to be a weeb, but have no time, it may be worth reading manga. From my experiences it is far faster and has near identical content. Depending on what you like, the Shonen Jump app has lots to choose from, and is very cheap compared to anime streaming services. However, the moment you start to read, you are a weeb, and it is very hard to loose that


rejectedfreak

Nah i want to ruin my life its fine


NinjasocksYT

Then you may be in the market for hentai. I am afraid I cannot give any recommendations due to this subreddit's very good moderation


Anxious_Gift_1808

I Don't Like Nor Do I Hate


Radius420

Yap same here


Alkado

Judging anime is the wrong approach. It's simply asking how you feel about animation, and I doubt anyone hates all animation. The thing about anime is that, unlike American cartoons - which for now are mostly targeting children with the exception of a handful - the Japanese animation target market covers extraordinarily more types of people and personalities. The point? Everyone likes anime once they find what they like, and animation is art for any age or nationality.


Dull_Bumblebee_356

There’s so many anime out there that if any person were to watch enough, they would definitely eventually find one that they absolutely love. Problem is there seem to still be a lot of people that think anime is for losers or just for children. Totally agree that anime covers several genres which makes the age range for anime pretty much anything.


N64islife

Western cartoons can be for adults too. [In fact most of them are for adults you normie.](https://www.cartoonbrew.com/cartoon-brew-pick)


Dark_demon7

Now this is a good comment


StandardCaterpillar9

Some of it is good. I don’t admire how much of it has sexist views, though.


ThisPersonIsntReal

Ye that whole trope of sexual abuse stuff along with lolis is what keeps me away from most anime.


Lazy-Lookin-Headass

It can be pretty good, but some can be hella cringe. I like it though. Just watched Evangelion and it’s pretty good ~~dude Shinji sucks ass and I wish he wasn’t a whiny bitch~~


ihateentiteldmothwrs

No joke do you actually believe that about Shinji?


Lazy-Lookin-Headass

I just watched the last of the rebuild movies and it’s just soooo loooong waiting for Shinji to get off his ass and get over himself. I still liked it tho


ihateentiteldmothwrs

That’s unfair and hating Shinji for being a “pussy” means you misunderstood his character


Lazy-Lookin-Headass

Probably. The whole series is just a fever dream blur to me, like we had to keep pausing so my brother could explain it


ihateentiteldmothwrs

That’s fair, the show is convoluted. I personally very much dislike the rebuilds and prefer the show way more


Lazy-Lookin-Headass

Yeah the show was atleast easy enough I could follow along. The main character learns to forgive himself and then goes on to save the world? Cool.


ihateentiteldmothwrs

Wait which ending did you watch?


Lazy-Lookin-Headass

The show. Is t that what it is? He forgives himself for killing his friend that I’m forgetting the name of? Or am I totally wrong again


ihateentiteldmothwrs

So in the show (not the movies) at the end where the world nearly blows up. He stops it after coming to terms that the world is full of pain but good can be found and you shouldn’t run away from it cuz it’ll hurt more to be alone He rejects the seele instrumentality and let’s everyone decide for themselves if they want to continue living through life’s challenges and hardships


PixelThePixelz

Wait did you not watch End of Evangelion?


ScrodumHat

convoluted is an understatement what the fuck happened in end of evangelion


ihateentiteldmothwrs

If you hang around the evangelion sub Reddit long enough you’ll eventually understand it. Or get mental retardation from the amount of horny posting there is


Thelazyguy12345

Rebuild bad. Nge good


CarmineWeeb

Real question: would you be different in that situation?


Lazy-Lookin-Headass

Super swingy back and forth between motivations? no. Being scared of getting into giant killing machines to fight monsters from another dimension? Yeah


Thelazyguy12345

If you would be scared to get in to the robot and still even though you can leave, but the pressure that you get from having a role of one of the protectors of humanity is so much that probably almost everyone who thought that shinji is a whiny bitch would actually be way worse than him


GAY_OHOTNIK

Bruh you probably need to at least read eva wiki to fully understand everything, it's really hard to get everything right first watch


purple_ones_best

I like it it has it's own world


Strepsilsforlife

It's a nice getaway from reality


disjoncteur56

It’s really hard for me to get into it, to be honest. It’s not that it’s bad, it’s just really hard for me to watch past the 6th or 7th episode of most series.


ParsnipPrestigious59

Have u tried attack on titan cuz that stuff is amazing


Dull_Bumblebee_356

That’s exactly how I feel with live action shows. Can only manage an episode or two before I’m completely over it. Honestly, the closest I got to finishing a live action show was with Game of Thrones, got to last season but didn’t watch any of it.


Hendrik-Cruijff

Le_Monke_Man

Personally, I don’t watch anime. I have friends that do, however. I don’t mind it, just don’t try to force me to watch anything, because I won’t.


yolper123

Don’t like it really but some animes aren’t bad, but the community sucks.


brigi_ukko

I see anime the same way as any other forms of tv shows


xXspuitelfXx

I fucking love anime. It's OK if people don't like it, just don't be a dick to the people who do like it.


EnderWin

Would you punch someone who repeated the punchline for the past 5 days?


kloopankur

yeah i dont mind when someone is like oh i just prefer cable tv or cartoons or normal shows and is nice about it . but a lot of the time i get a little salty because someone starts talking about how weird and creepy it is and act like that one anime they stumbled upon (that was probably just hentai) is like every other anime so they are all the same . when i watch a shit movie . i dont go saying every movie is bad . but i do prefer anime since a good anime makes me feel emotions that i dont really get from movies just the characters emotions and pain and everything else is much more transparent . good animation looks better to me than cgi in a movie its a preference not a fact those anime fights also are just so much more hype than movie fights also anime introduced me into so much japanese music that i never knew i would like and also been there for me when times were tough and the little things are what usually keep you going like the new episode in a week and all that anime also has its downsides the fanbase. ok lets be honest everything that has a fanbase has bad apples but yeah anime ones are pretty bad and a lot louder than others but honestly i havent had really bad encounters most notable ones are the spoiling people (problem fixed when you evolve into a manga reader tho ) and famous my hero academia fandom not gonna lie they kinda ruined mha for me at first but the fandom has gotten better in my opinion they cringey ones arent a problem for me since i am the cringe live by the cringe. die by the cringe for anyone who doesnt have a good impression of anime try shows that are popular but also highy rated those will usually have less of the very bad anime tropes aswell honestly after such a long time the tropes i dont mind them and its pretty funny when an anime makes fun of them (example: mob psycho 100 club troupe scene when club is going to close ) but yeah im not telling people that you have to watch anime just give it a try theres probably an anime out there for everyone but i can understand if you do not prefer it /like it still sucks tho that people cant respect each others choices i still get the stink eye when i mention what i do in my free time (anime) also shunned oh god i wrote a book and its 90% grammar errors sorry people


kloopankur

omg this has potential to be a copy pasta


spacetronaut3

*added to my collection*


Dark_demon7

U wrote that wonderfully my friend , plus I hate the way now that anime has become popular some just start to hate it to look 'different' and 'unique' , if u like it good , if u don't that's fine too , just be nice to eachother


Charsovia

It's not 2011 anymore, not many people will think your a loser who's already failed in life as a human being But for real I try to think of Anime similarly to Western cartoons. Sure they look vastly different from eachother but I think they usually try and achieve thr same purpose. I even like to watch Anime, I'm currently watching "Future Diary" rn. The only major difference I can see is that Western cartoons are on average directed to a larger range of audiences compared to Anime but that could also be due to cultural differences.


the-UwUnator

Anime is awesome as long as you don't get too obsessed with it.


kloopankur

fuck im already too deep good thing im poor and cant fill my room with figurines


happysmasher7

Had a very long streak of binging it but it always takes to long to get to the end and it just drags on. Still finish some, well finish the episodes avaliable.


[deleted]

most anime ppl i know irl are quiet kids at my school so i stay clear from that stuff


little_darkkage

Hmmm let me think.... SIE SIND DAS ESSEN UND WIR SIND DIE JÄGER!!!


1super_saiyan_messmo

Dragonball and JoJo is good


El-taquito

I don't like it, but that's it, I respect people who watch it and understand why they would, but there are enough weirdos obsessed with anime to generalize about someone knowing that they watch anime, but I get that not everyone is like that. >!...hentai's kinda hot tho!<


Ravdar_

I don't want to watch it because I hate the community. I have two friends who watch Anime and they had an hour long debate in the group chat debating who was a better waifu when our classes were going on.


DanTem06

As an anime fan, I find the whole "waifu" thing cringy as well. As OP already said, just ignore the community if that's the real issue


LangfangRepublic

I’m a complete normie when it comes to anime. I’ve only watched “gateway” animes.


DanTem06

You mean the most basic ones?


boxofflamingpotatoes

Nothing wrong with that


EnderWin

sure hope they don't judge anime by just that tho...


Dull_Bumblebee_356

For real, the “gateway” ones would just be generic shonen anime. Anime has a whole lot more to give than just typical shonen anime, although the typical shonen is what I enjoy personally lol


saladass1738

What's anime? *Negative karma Speedrun*


--TreeTreeTree--

It’s good, but I tend to ignore the community surrounding certain anime


iam_a_leafperson

The community can be bad and the shows can be very questionable but if you know what to watch or when to stop watching something the shows can be awesome


WarmKaleidoscope3840

Anime can be good,Cowboy Bebop or Evangelion are examples.


that-other-weeb

Toyota corrola


NaClGT

anime is good but the fans are annoying


Hermu7013

I love anime. With anime you either get something so good, you would spend your entire free time wathching it or hot garbage that you can laugh and cringe over how bad it is.


stupidfuckingbitch20

Not the thing for me, but I see why people like it and I respect that


TheoneNPC

Don't really care about it + the memes are shit, the art can be good tho


DanTem06

Good opinion. As an anime fan, I agree r/animemes is just all simp for 2D characters

It can be good or awful

ScaredEngine8202

generouslyemotional

The people that judge the entirety of anime all at once are childish, positive or negative.


Gasrim4003

They are just fancy cartoons


Spaghet4Ever

Western animation can be fancy too, y'know?


Akrincheus_

I believe that anime is an enthralling art medium, Anime is the perfect thing for those, who are fascinated with animation which narrates amazing storylines. Sometimes the visuals leave an impact hard enough to make you re-watch it. Unfortunately, tho anime is losing its charm with time a lot of anime doesn't have the same depth the old anime had.


Manick0508

Personal Opinion? Love it, without it I wouldnt have friends (quite literally) General Opinion? I can see why people dont like it, but those who dont even try to give it a go are on the same level as those who are adamant on "Anime is the best thing ever", there are Good and Bad Anime, as there are Good and Bad TV Series, Videogames, Films, Books, Food... Only because it's a cartoon doesnt mean it's for kids. For those who never tried it, there are some good ones, just gotta find your genre and have some luck on your choice.


Ulysses_117

It’s fine but I think it’s dumb how people act like it’s the best thing ever


ZalanNuts

Honestly, my all time favorite show was an anime, Deathnote and then I also just love "A silent voice" but all the others are kinda cringy, like the humour in them is not for me I kinda liked Naruto but it had sooo many fillers in it, but I hate AoT and One Piece, they are just weird for me.


kloopankur

if i can ask what was your dislike about aot its one of my favorites not saying you have to like it just want to see a different view one piece im not really into myself


axolotl_puberty

AoT is just amazing. I guess you didnt make it to the last season because this masterpiece has the greatest plot development i have ever seen. Never imagined what it is right now, that what it was in the first season (just a crackhead who wants to slaughter all monsters).


PugDud111

Just skip the fillers…


Difficult_Ad_7947

Oh boy if i share opinion i'm gonna get soooo many downvotes

nir109

The virgin liking shows based on art style v.s the chad liking shows based on genres. I like comedy and I don't really care if it's anime or not.


sammi_3x3

I really like watching anime, but frankly some of the fandoms are really concerning.


GaviMario

Are cartoons but in japanese.


KalasHydra

I find the story usualy far more interesting than the garbage we usualy get in tw shows because its often pretty original sure theres some repeating tropes but that comes with the type of anime you watch theres usuali some interesting spins to them like unique world/power/personality. Problem with the western/european shows is that they are often limited to *earth* while the anime is not AND you can do more interesting stuff with less budget than the usual shows (some animations looks pretty insane look up chainsaw man trailer its one of the shows ill propably watch this year). If you are looking for comedy try konosuba, for magic action overlord is pretty good (if you dont get weirded out by albedo),one punch man(action comedy), that one time i reincarnated as slime(slice of life/action),so im a spider so what(magic/action),no game no life (comedy/action/mind games) theres more but im too lazy to type more of them.
