    Is that reason alone enough to hate them? It seems like a waste of time and energy to hate them. Unless, they're doing something directly to other people. They don't seem to be hurting anyone else by liking what they do. They tend to be loyal and spend a great deal of money on their hobbies as well. That has to be good for the economy.

    No, it isn't.

    I came pretty close to being that way about Twilight, until I read the book. Now I hate it because it's a bad book. XD
    Wait, what did you say again?

    I think a lot of anime comes across 'illicit' - only a matter of time before you realize when to pack in the heat...

    hahaha, this one time, there was an animecon in my area when i was 15. a friend and i batted our lashes and coerced these twelve year old boys to give us their passes ("but.. my mom's coming back in, like, 15 minutes! she won't want to wait..")

    we snuck in under masculine names and scoped the place out. we were kind of wise-assy and in a particularly snarky mood, joking about the sort of people in attendance. we weren't there 2 minutes when: "DEMIIIIII!!!! FRIEND OF DEMI!!!!" These kids from our high school called over to us (from inside their anime-man get-ups). Got some good photos at least, haha.

    When i was younger i liked anime because it tried to blend philosophical (as well as actions with the red stuff american cartoon refuse to show) topics on a genre that's generally viewed by the general public to target children. Of course it doesn't help that the american equavalent of anime usually consist of sponge bob square pants and ed ed n eddy, as well as adult cartoon such as family guy, simpson that's generally confined to comedy. Anime however are not limited to laugh out loud comedy, so you usually see all kind of topics being covered for your entertainment. The only thing i hate is majority of anime that becames popular here consist of a adolecent kid trying to save the world of some sort *i'm looking at you Naruto*.

    Finally anime gets hated on because it belongs int he same category as Dungeons and dragons, star wars, star trek, etc. And because its not football, basketball, or baseball...and the fact that its not in any rap song and not related to being gangster.

    I don't think it's the anime itself that gives it a negative connotation to some people, but it's because most anime fans are nerds, geeks, and dorks.

    If you take any activity then get nerds to do it in large numbers, it becomes uncool in a way. Just like with MMORGP gaming and Dungeons & Dragons.

    I did some photoshop contract work getting Bleach into a virtual world. I had no idea what the characters were or anything about it.

    I tried to read wiki on it and couldn't follow it. (I wasn't really dying to follow it, just get some idea) I think the foreign language in the description was off putting. I had no idea how to pronounce the names and I wasn't thrilled with the art.

    I also think the rabid fans and the fact that it seems like it has to be drawn a certain way to be anime (again, an assumption) makes it seem strange.

    I've associated weird treatment of women and naughty pictures of child looking people with anime, too.

    Disclaimer: You don't have to argue my comments like im a xenophobe or an uninformed idiot, I'm just giving an unbias virgin opinion. I wouldn't mind opinions though.

After Rukia is severely wounded while trying to protect Ichigo, she attempts to transfer half of her reiatsu (???, lit.

The next day Rukia appears in Ichigo's classroom as a seemingly normal human, and informs Ichigo that his absorption of her powers has left her stranded in the human world until she recovers her strength. In the meantime Ichigo shelters Rukia in his home and takes over her job as a Soul Reaper, battling hollows and guiding lost souls to the afterlife realm known as Soul Society (???(????????), S?ru Sosaeti?).

    I haven't nothin again Anime the medium since, it's just a japanese animation really.

    Most anime, though, is crap. Just like most [insert whatever here] is crap. But every now and then you find something worthwhile. The only reason why I don't consider myself an anime fan in the same way I consider myself a movie fan, is because I don't get a steady supply of quality. I can only think of about 5 animes or so that I thought were truly great.
