Most people do hate it yes
Most of them are just trolling, they actually don't give a shit
People don't hate on anime, they hate on people who like anime
nobody cares about what u do, go watch amine
most of the people don't even know what is anime they just hate it for nothing some of them actually think anime is for kids ...
i dont hate anime, i hate the weebs that like it, and so should you my nigga
I hate animes and i'm not baiting
Last time, a friend told me the story of one of them, it was boring af to listen to this average 11yo little boy story
Barely anyone hates anime, dumb ass shits thinks that every1 who wachest anime sleeps with anime pillows and masturbates on hentai pics
real talk here
i dont like anime but i feel like the community around it makes it worse, weebs are vile creatures. if weebs were just your average tv show fan, like idk, game of thrones fans are pretty normal people
but no weebs have to be cancerous and creepy and shit
fuck weebs man
Never watched nor really considered tbh
If id do id have a different opinion. Rn it just doesnt appeal to me
I like anime to be honest. But I don't watch it regularly, just an interest.
anime is ratarded, but somehow it can motivate very good
99% of people actually watched and liked anime (1 or 2 titles or even more)
People hate it only because some people enjoy watching it... weird but well
Many ppl hate it because it is popular to say that anime is gay. The truth is most of them havent seen single episode
Most of people don't know about it. But a vast majority knowing about it thinks it is some sort of mental disease to watch mostly anime passed a certain age.
TL;DR: Informed people are neutral on average, uninformed people tend to think ill of it.
I do think uninformed people tend to dislike it, because they think anime is just childish screaming and unintelligent violence but without any blood. Then there are misinformed people, who seem to believe that anime is hentai, so basically porn for weirdoes. Sometimes they even think of anime as an animated equivalent to child porn. I won't deny that such things exist, or even that it's a popular theme in anime to have underage (looking) girls engage in all kinds of relationships, but what most of them seem to miss is that most anime don't contain more nudity than a TV-show with emphasis on nudity would. Yes, anime DOES emphasize sexuality, but in most cases it's not like some weird orgy's going on. The way in which characters behave in anime is just fundamentally different, which at times makes anime look like it tolerates sexual content too much. But the question is: Is it really as bad as people make it out to be?
[EDIT: Popularity plays a big part too. When you're surrounded by people who bash and hate on anime, you're more likely to either start to hate it yourself, or you'll just hide the fact that you don't necessarily hate it.]
Example: The male protagonist accidentally walks into a girl's room just while she's changing clothes, and sees her in her underwear. In a TV show the girls would scream, probably slap the guy in the face and report him for breach of privacy and sexual harassment. He then gets kicked from school and starts taking drugs. In anime, everything would hold true until the "sexual harassment" thing, but instead of being kicked he just goes to class as usual and finds out that this girl sits right next to him. At first she doesn't like him, but they then befriend each other and so on...
Of course my example was full of stereotypes, but I had to try and find something that would be applicable in both "worlds". As I said, anime does tolerate sexual content more than TV shows do, but that doesn't mean that every single one of those shows is meant to be watched by horny perverts. What's wrong about enjoying a comedy show (or any other) which contain some nudity? There are few scenes where you can even remotely see what's going on during sex in anime, whereas in TV shows it's actually not that uncommon to see 2 people being at it while the only things that can't be seen are genitals. Just pointing that out right there.
The people mentioned above also associate their negative picture of anime with the people watching in, thus projecting the image of a lonely person who does nothing else but watching anime and sleeping with his body pillow (literally or figuratively) onto the person in question. I think that's the big problem with "outsiders" who have very little knownledge of what anime actually is or can be. I used to be like this myself, I hated anime because a friend of mine would always talk about anime and how there are overly sexy girls, thus making me think that, whoever draws and watches this kind of stuff must be a freak. Fortunately I managed to correct my mistake, but it just goes to show how important first impressions are, not just in anime but in general.
Long story short, informed people tend to be neutral towards anime on average, or so I believe. Now, if anyone still thinks negatively of anime even after having informed themselves, that's completely fine, but please don't throw all of us anime fans into the same bucket. Anime containts a lot of things: There's violence and blood, interesting plot twists, a heavy emphasis on expressing feelings and yes, at times there's sexual content. Anime is very different from TV shows, but regardless of whether you like anime or not, there's one fact concerning people who watch anime that remains which I'd like to get across to everyone.
Sorry for the long read!
