  • Anime is alright, but the whole fandom surrounding anime is toxic.

  • Anime is not my cup of tea. I also don't care for the way it depicts females.

  • I love it and as someone who is actually babyfaced at 25 years old, anime helped me accept for who I am when I was 18.
    I really hate it when people are so mad about anime females being babyfaced or childlike in other ways even when they're over 18. Also, what about the male characters? There are actually many over 18 year old male characters that somehow look very young too. In my opinion, Lucifer from the anime The Devil Is A Part Timer and Levy Ackermann look like 10 year olds. Momiji Sohma is 15-17 but he also looks like 10. Male characters that look much younger than their age or are somehow childlike despite being over 18 are a thing too. Not to mention that not every over 18 year old anime female is like that.

    I also feel like that people who are so mad about such characters are probably very shallow towards real life babyfaced people as well and probably expect them to look like what Hollywood celebs look in their own age or whatever. Heck, I'm sure that they actually expect 14 year olds to look like 25.

    Will people just ever shut up about the babyfaced anime characters and characters that have a childlike personality? Because not everybody can look like their age and not every adult is some boring person whose free time stuff is probably just some health nut vlogs and stupid reality shows.

    And let me tell you that while it's true that Japan has many flaws, accusing anime character designs of "Japanese pedophilia misogyny" or something like that is rather Japanophobic than some "human rights activism".

  • I don't like it. Weird animation that's sometimes choppy and sometimes incredibly smooth and detailed, all the characters look like children, especially women. Outrageous hairstyles and clothes everywhere, predictable aloof, genius, wannabe-cool rivals and antagonists.
    Everyone has a weird voice and women's voices are extra high-pitched and squeaky.

    With that said, I'm sure there is good anime out there, that isn't whatever I saw, but still... not my cup of tea.

  • I like anime very much, a lot of animes have really good stories and art styles that are just so beautiful they're worth watching.

  • Anime is fine, the fans less so.

  • I've never understood why people ask this question like this. It's like asking, "Do you like movies? Do you like music?"

    It's just a medium and like any other there's a shit load of variety, much better and worse than the stereotypical picture that comes to mind. It's not all spikey-haired kids with superpowers, like at all. Haha.

    Just like movies, it can be anything. There are even really down-to-Earth and depressing anime about things like children starving to death during war times that I've seen jerk tears more than any movie. There's one anime that on the surface _does_ appear to be childish with a giant, friendly cat-like creature and a little girl, but it's actually about (based on a true story) the girl's mental image of an older man who frequently played with her and helped her escape her depression before being sent to prison for life for raping her, when in reality her serial rapist was free and the man (seen as the cat) who was imprisoned was the only one she trusted. Not for kids.

    Also, some of the greatest sci-fi stories of all time used the anime format to escape the limitations of live-action flicks.

    There are some incredible gems and there is also absolute trash.

    • If you're into sci-fi, you're probably aware of Sturgeon's Law: "Ninety percent of everything is crap."

      That story about the giant cat sounds like it could be very powerful. Any hints about the name? I haven't got anywhere with Googling.

      Any search which includes the words "animé", "girl" and "cat" returns results that are very predictable, and not quite what I'm looking for.

      • I am and 90% is a rather forgiving estimate if you ask me.

        My Neighbor Totoro

        The studio doesn't expressly admit that it's based on the rape and murder but the film is utterly saturated to the brim with Easter eggs and references to it and it's long been widely accepted in the fan base that this is the case. I didn't know about this upon my initial viewing and it ultimately still ended up being a rather depressing movie either way, albeit less disturbing.

        Your search story got a laugh out of me. I suspect I just may be able to imagine the sort of thing you encountered. The keywords I left behind were rather unfortunate.

  • Meh, I like one or two of them. I think the only two I'd watch again is Death Note and One Punch.
