    I honestly think anime is totaly retarded and corny. I have never liked it, in fact, I have always despised (sp?) it. The fact that they have anime porn is just sad, and makes me wonder what kinda losers are producing this crap. I am offended when I am channel surfing and accidentaly come across it, I feel cheated out of the 1/10th of a second of my life I've lost. I dont know if there's some deep phsycological meaning to it, but I doubt it. What does everyone else think?

    I think you're a vapid generalizing wanker who can't look beyond a stereotype and who is too lazy to try and understand a type of art and would rather spend his time trying to get attention by spouting off negativity and judging. You complain of a wasted 1/10th of a second? How long did it take to type your baneful little diatribe?

    Ending a grand terse statement with "sucks" doesn't help either. Why don't you try and "broaden your horizons" and learn and create instead of whining. Try a book first.

    It's like anything else, there is good, there is bad, there is odd. What is bad in "anime" tramples most "good" in mainstream US media, and is vastly more innovative.

    Stop beating around the bush and tell us what you really think about it. :grin:

    Actually, it's not really my bag either. But, I'm not about to form a coalition to ban it or anything.

    Scooby Doo is about the jist of my anime .. jonny quest, yogi bear, speed buggy.


    Maybe if they had a really bad arse firefighting anime... with stippers & fire poles .... & firemen that go heeled while off duty ... :thinking:

    I think I see the anime, and sort of keep flicking through the channels. The times that I have stopped long enough to watch, the story line didn't look interesting to me.. so I moved on. I guess I don't really have anything against it, it just never has roped me in. I did see a really weird one at the movies back in the late 70's early 80's. Don't remember the name though.

    Actually, I had replied to afroman, with the beating around the bush stuff. ;)

    But, thanks for the clarification on the anime. :blush:

    I still think a gun totin' , stipper filled, pole slidin, firefightin' animation flick would be cool. :cool1: But they would have to be some real hard arses.. & drive heavly upgraded 4wd's... even though they work in a large urban setting. :D Roll their own cigs', dip suff... cuss like sailors ...


    Now, if I just knew a good title.. :grin:

    You have obviously never seen "Fist of the Northstar" or "Ninja Scroll".

    I don't have a problem with anime. it's just cartoons as far as I can tell. Don't like it, don't watch it.

    I find it pretty annoying, too. I used to HATE it in the 80's/early 90's. It was low-quality crap, the characters mouth opens a little, he recites the gettysburg address, and his mouth closes a little. Maybe his head would tilt while all this audio was coming out. Annoying that they couldn't be bothered enough to match up the audio decently in addition to bland/non-unique looking animation.
    I don't know if it's still like that or not, and I have no desire to watch long enough to find out.
    I don't hate it or feel cheated if I flip past it, but I wouldn't unblock a channel that showed it on my dish, and I wouldn't buy a cartoon for my kids with it. I just find it annoying to look at, like some people can be annoying to look at. Actually, it's like plenty of other "art" that's annoying to look at.

    It really affects my life as much as sponge bob, though, so I don't really care about it.

    Cartoons in general have never done anything for me. Be it a comic book or on TV, I have no interest. But, to each his own and we all have different preferences on just about every issue. Live and let live......

    I like to think my opinion is based less on ignorance and more on intolerance. My cousins watch this crap when they come to visit and one even draws it (10 year old white girl...) and it drives me nuts. Now I dont say anything to them because I wouldnt want to hurt their fragile little feelings (can you tell they are my favorite cousins?) but it bugs me. Why dont I just leave you ask? My mother, thats why. Aparently I am obligated to spend time with my family because I love them, at least, thats what I've been told. I'd say my biggest peeve with them, besides the truely heinous representation of human bodies (especially scrawny japanese one) is the lip movement. If winnie the ****in pooh can lip sync adequetly then why cant some "badass" cartoon. I know they were originally done in japanese but i bet they wern't that good to start with.

    If I see something on TV that I don't like I change the chanel, not get emotional about it.

    You're an idiot, and am sorry to say I am not very motivated to explain why your complaints are unfounded

    I scored it from somebody else no doubt. I have a ton of them, but a lot of them would get me booted so I toe the line......

    I'm more a fan of non-anime cartoons myself... Just not my cup of kool-aid...

    I do have a problem with people who generally watch the stuff... not everyone, of course, but a lot of them... People who never leave the house, and play games like Yugioh and Pokemon and stuff... And spend their time in their room all day because they don't have a job, because it would interfere with their robot war games at the local comic book store... Plus they can't be bothered to hang out with the "less cultured" people who have jobs, listen to good music, don't obsess over strategy games (yes, there's a difference between enjoying and obsessing), and drink something other than Mt. Dew once in a while... I won't even mention the 20 year olds trying to see who can stay up all night to paint their robot armies the fastest and with the most intricate detail...

    That's all I have to say about that, and I have experience, as I have several friends who are exactly as described... Well, we don't hang out anymore, so i guess I could say HAD several friends like that... But that would imply that we're not friends anymore...
