Anime is for jerks

The words of Jeff Gerstmann pretty much sums up my opinion of anime. I don't enjoy. I've tried to watch it. I don't like it. I don't think I should be expected to like it because I like comics. 
I find the sense of humor in anime is dated and if I have to watch it the way that "true" fans do it has to be with sub-titles which emphasizes the long pauses that nobody says anything (which certain happens in western television shows but rarely ever in animation).
I DON'T LIKE ANIME. I love saying that. You might like anime. That's super.  But I DON'T LIKE ANIME!

Okay...... random. I like some anime, but I MUCH prefer comics and stuff. Really, I only like Death Note and Full Metal Alchemist.

Cool story, bro.
 
That being said, I'm mostly in your position except for some anime I actually like. Karas is mostly about nutty fighting and violence and it looks great. I can overlook the flaws.

All i'm seeing is someone throwing a temper tantrum. Really? Anime? for jerks? It's ironic that much of the larger world is turning towards anime. Including Halo.

I've always been partial to One Piece, just putting that out there

When anime sucks, make the boobs bigger to get more audience.

The blog itself isn't bad, but we foresee a problem with the responses. Have to wait and see :P

@King Saturn: @geraldthesloth:
I don't think I'm over reacting. I just think sometimes you need to say "Hey, I don't like this and that's got to be okay."

Good call. Naruto is dumb.

There are those who don't care. Especially since this is a comic board. If you wish to show your opinion, I suggest you go here.

I guess I'm a little different.  I started out on anime, anime, and more anime.  Didn't care at all about comics.  Thought the characters were just too one-dimensional.  Then I bought Hush, and fell in love with the stuff.  I still like anime though for the different stories and unique artwok.  That and even I didn't I would still see it in comic movies since they keep giving their stuff to japanese and korean animators just to make it look like anime so people will buy it.  Still, you're opinions your opinion it's no big deal.

Anime is for jerks

 
because eisforextinciton doesn't like it
Posted by xerox_kitty

I enjoy a good rant.  I don't have any problem with someone venting & sounding their opinions... But anime is enjoyed by 'jerks' just as much as regular US super hero comics are.    

It's not as if one type of fan is better than another.  There are jerks who like most fandoms.   
 
I like some US comics, some manga and some anime.  It doesn't mean I like all US comics, manga or anime.  Just as it doesn't mean I'm a jerk for liking them... if I'm a jerk then it's because of how I behave ;)

Where is this from ? I must watch it .
Posted by TheJuggernautpunch

Anime isn't for jerks . There are always some good anime . The only reason why i hate anime like Naruto and others is because there are no cool-looking characters . 
And i mostly watch Yuri anime . It's awesome . And it is definitely not for jerks .

I don't care to look for good anime. I have been burned too many times. I'd rather do something I like instead of trying to validate a genre.

Amen brother. I'm a jerk too, just not because I like anime.

I just quoted the title from Jeff because I thought it was funny and I agreed with the sentiment. If something work for you, awesome. It doesn't work for me. I'm going to form opinions based around my feelings about something not based around what other people think.

I would advise those people to stay away from my personal blog then. Anime is more on topic than pictures of dogs so that validates this entry. Also, why would I go to AnimeVice? Pointing out that I'm a comic book fan that doesn't like anime on an anime fan site is pointless. I already know what they're going to say.

I don't like apple pie! Sometimes you need to shake the foundation and let people know that you have no interest in living in their Apple Pie World.

How do you explain movies like Akira that are considered masterpieces in Cinema in general not even in the Anime World Akira is an epic Blockbuster and critically acclaimed as one of the most ground breaking movies ever

Posted by CosmicSpiral

You probably didn't consider this, but no one really cares about a misinformed and pointless opinion.

I didn't like it. A lot of dudes yelling. My buddy is a big fan. Different strokes for different folks.

That sounds ... not right . At least be more polite when you name your blog . Some people can react on it more rudely if you  offense their tastes .

Indeed it comes off as though you are calling me as well as a large portion of this website jerks which we most certainly are not. As well Otakus are some of the nicest people I ever met sometimes to nice 0.o

It doesn't matter what you like, but you sound like a tool for being proud of NOT liking something.
