Anime and Manga Haters can be nasty too! by Boschian-Fantasies Anime and Manga Haters can be nasty too! by Boschian-Fantasies
Remember when I used to be in a die-hard "anime hater" phase on this site?

Well, I've gotten over it, due to some people pointing out that I was being no better than the weeaboo otakus, and even went as far as threatening to make an Encyclopedia Dramatica article on my bad behavior.

That was indeed a wake up call I'll never forget....

Okay, I will be up front and honest here:

I never really did hate all anime and manga to begin with. Hell, some of my favorite TV shows of all time growing up were anime shows, such as Grimm's Fairy Tale Classics, Superbook, The Flying House, Robotech and Lensman.
And also, TBH, I went into an anime-hater phase, due to being bullied and harassed for liking certain anime and manga shows, and being called hurtful nicknames like "Gook Fucker" and "Nip Tit Licker".

It hurt me soooooo bad to be against something I grew up liking. But I was sick of being bullied and harassed for liking these things....
And of course, the bullied became the bully. 

I'm sorry if I hurt everyone's feelings on this. I really am sorry. I won't do it again.

Also....

Just because some weeaboo otakus annoy me, does not mean I'm against sane, casual fans. The Sane fans of any fandom can stay.

But yeah, I learned my lesson.

The rabid anime and manga hatedom is no better than the rabid fandom. 

Hmmm....now that I think of it....

I might make a meme one day on titles and series with both the fandoms and hatedoms being equally horrible to one another.

And then we have all those who say that anime is Japan's revenge for the Bombings.

What I hate of those individuals is that some even want a third nuke in Japan just because of that reasoning!

Oy vey.

Let's not forget the web comic maker, Bleedman, would probably have Grim, Billy, and Mandy nuke Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in his wretched Grim's Tale from Down below fancomic.

Probably, yes. My only guess is either for harassment or infringing copyright or something.

Not really a nazi, but there are a lot of groups which used artwork by big companies and didn't even credit them. We-Hate-Anime-Dogs is a prime example. While the group is dead now, they think that it's fine for them to take credit for stamps that uses artwork that they didn't even make.

And they (And their cheerleaders in the comments) think they're mad because they called anime trash, but I think it's really just because two losers went in just to disrupt them with their trending anime hate bandwagon they pull off the internet. Haha I mean I'll be honest, this is why I hate trends, especially internet trends where it's "cool" to like or hate things like anime.

I don't mind if people dislike anime (after all we all have different tastes) but a lot of them either act like total drama queens that act like it's the worst thing to ever happen or rabid and constantly talk trash about it and completely dis it. Some of them even have only watched like, 4 or less anime shows and they just automatically say that they hate it. -.-

Not to mention there is A LOT of anti anime stamps, I mean, is just one or two enough? (Same can be said with many other things). Anime seems to be the animation style that gets the most anti stamps, since I don't see any anti stamps for CGI, claymation, or western animation (at least not yet). Yet anime gets A LOT of anti stuff. 

I've even seen an anti anime stamp that said "I support anti-anime, screw you Japan!" and I'm just like: -.- Seriously? Your going to say to an ENTIRE country to screw itself just for making a type of brand of cartoon? *Facepalm*

A lot of people just seem to hate anime either because they think it's "cool" to hate it or because of weeaboos, even though the Western cartoon fandom is no better, with the rabid haters of Johnny Test and Teen Titans Go! being a good example of how bad the Western cartoon fandom can be. It's safe to say most of the haters have hardly watched anime at all.

Also, telling Japan to screw itself over anime sounds really messed up...

You are no doubt right about that.

Rabid fans are annoying, and rabid haters are no better.

That goes for any series!  Anime, Mario, Sonic, MLP, Undertale, you name it! Nod

Plus some rabid anime haters tend be cartoonaboos too (ignoring the fact that anime and cartoon are pretty much the same thing). 

Anyways, I'm glad you have made this. I mean, sure there are animes that I hate, however there are also times to control one's hate of something (not only for anime, but things in general). 

Also I'm sorry for those people giving you a hard for liking those animes. They have no right to do that. :no:
(Plus, Robotech sounds interesting.)

I've had that experience too. I got called a "weeaboo" just for even mentioning anime. I had to pretend that I disliked anime because I didn't want to get harassed for liking it, and it just felt wrong. 
There are also anime that I hate, but many people assume that I like all of them and that I'll watch anything that's a Japanese cartoon, but I actually refuse to watch certain shows.

I'm trying to control my love and hate for things as well. It's a bit easier since I've been medicated for a while.

I love the first and third seasons of Robotech. However, avoid the second season like the plague.

You know, I'm actually happy to see this from you!:heart:

And I understand why things can be hard to get into due to bullying, that's what it was like for me with sports since I preferred arts and literature. But even if I do hate Sports (well I like a few that can be fun) not every Sports fan is obnoxious.

If people give you problems for liking obscure animes, then fuck them. There's nothing wrong with like obscure anime, most of the things I like can be obscure too. I tend to like popular anime (well except Naruto and some crappy harems) but I'm willing to check out obscure anime. (The Grimm's Fairy Tale Classics sound interesting) But sometimes, I do give some new things a try if a friend recommends them to me BUT they make sure if it catches my interests in it.
I don't even care if people hate the anime/mangas I like, sometimes me and my bro tease each other for it BUT that's just sibling bond so that's just joking around.


Well, if you makes you feel better, a lot of anime fans also find weeaboo otakus annoying since they give the rest a bad reputation. Heck, Miyzaki himself isn't too fond of weeaboos either. Weeaboos almost killed my interest in anime, but after coming cross some new things and of course, watching the ones I grew up with, I decided I won't let bad fans ruin things I enjoy.


But the main reason why I can't stand rabid anime/manga haters is how they generalize sane anime fans.
For an example; A friend of mine has been called a weeaboo a lot of times because she enjoys drawing in the anime style BUT she enjoys other things that aren't anime, doesn't mind if people don't like the same shows she's into, and isn't a fan of the chibi cutesy shoujo style since it can be generic to her tastes. How can that even make her a weeaboo? Sure she'll say Japanese slangs like Kawaii or waifu, but does that mean she's serious? No, its just having fandom fun.

I like a lot of different things in Japan and heck, I love their candy and music. But that's because I like trying out things from different countries in general, its not just Japan.

Of course I do, I just want to help watch after my friends after all ^^

Heck, I even got bitched at for liking underrated shows like Wander Over Yonder and games like Final Fantasy X (well its debatable about being underrated) and I got bitched at for liking characters like Amy Rose, so I know the feeling.

Do you plan to do an anti cartoon child porn stamp soon?

I don't mind some dark story lines either, but when dark and gory turns to depression porn, that is where I draw the line.

Like, if you want a good tearjerker, you have to have a reason for the sadness (eg. cautionary tale, historical biography, etc), or at least have us care about the characters.
But when a story line is grim and depressing for the sake of being grim and depressing, it gets to that point where I just don't care anymore, or couldn't bring myself to care about the characters.

Get where I am coming from.

Yeah that's kind of bad..... Lmao that sounds exactly like this manga called Highschool of The Dead. (Thank God I grew out of that series.... Horror and hentai don't fucking mix and I hated how wasted the concept was )

No I agree, stories like piss me off as well. That's why I always try to look very hard for things that have somewhere in the middle of light and dark medium. Super Sugary things are kind of meh, but super depressing stories are no better either because they can be boring to read or watch.
