    Default Why is anime so terrible?

    Every anime that I've ever watched I've hated strongly. Watching it fills me with a sense of embarrassment, not for myself, but for anime enthusiasts whose artistic taste is so low that they enjoy such complete garbage. If you've ever watched a terrible comedian try way too hard at being funny and bomb, you can relate to the feeling I get when watching it. It's so extremely extremely pretentious and completely and utterly lacks self-awareness for how cliche and, again, so absolutely nauseatingly pretentious it is. I feel the same way about its fans: they are the most pretentious people I've ever met. This isn't personal; I don't know any anime fans on this board in real life, so don't consider it an insult. I can't be the only one who thinks this. Thoughts?

    I'm not a big anime fan myself but you are being extremely judgemental here. Judging someone's character based on what they happen to like or gives them pleasure, fuck you. Hearing things like the bolded statements above just makes my blood boil. Why? And it is very much an insult. There are anime fans on this forum and they are great people, not even remotely pretentious. Not to mention all the ones out there probably lurking.

    Perhaps you just haven't found a series you like yet? I mean just because you haven't seen it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. But given the nature of this rant I doubt you would even be open to the idea of changing your opinion. I'm a fairly big anime fan, and I consider it really no different than say music, movies, and an actual television series, and by that I mean there's plenty of options and you just have to find something you like. If I see a string of terrible movies, or hear some music I think isn't good, I don't let those particular instances formulate my entire opinion on the category they fall under.

    Ok, I don't hate anime or its fans, I was just getting angry that I had to watch a fucking one minute commercial of some boring, uninspired anime bullshit before seeing 1.5-2 minute long clips from a TV show on Youtube. I'm not a fan of anime, but I don't really hate it. I posted something like this in the Anime thread in the general forum just to entice a reaction, but I don't have any particularly strong feelings about the subject. I watched Jin Roh: Wolf Brigade and liked it a lot.

    Not even an entertaining one either. Meh. I don't know how to laugh or be mad or anything.

    Seemed more like venting than trolling to me. I have the same frustrated/angry reaction to things that are wildly popular but hold no interest for me. It drives me nuts trying to figure out the appeal, and when I can't, I have to get it out of my system. Not the best reaction, perhaps, but there you have it.

    Lol! Funny post. I'm going to weigh in before it gets sent off to the graveyard.
    I've never found anime to be pretentious but I just don't get it!!! I won't make comments about the patterns I've noticed in the anime lovers in my life. I'm really not sure what it's all about. One day I asked someone... "so, ... what do you guys do at anime conventions?" (With others around) and she said, "what DON'T you do at anime conventions???!!" It ended up being a big inside joke for years. I've asked a few different people why they like it- not really getting a straight answer... I'm starting to think it's a secret sex club or something... "I like anime" is probably a code for something else.

    I know of this phenomenon, and it's annoying me. The best example I can think of as of now is Justin Bieber. Many just love to hate him, and to be frank, they're more annoying than Justin himself. I hate it when I keep seeing anti-Bieber jokes, it's getting old quick.

    I'll admit to the OP that there have been a huge quality drop in recent animes. I've heard it's a failing industry, which I think the OP would be glad about. They seem to be targeting the general audience with "cuteness" to make up for the losses but it's truthfully hurting them more than helping them. I can only hope it it's not affecting Japanese comics, they're part of my core interest.
