The simple answer is some people haven't watched much and relate it to what they know, such as Pokemon [for kids primarily] and also, because they don't understand. Simple as that really :) .

Depends on the region you are in, I mean if you go to a college you can typically find people who actally like anime. In almost any community.

DBZ was surprisingly popular with the potheads as I recall.
As for the other stuff there are typically clubs so that you can go to find like minded individuals.

But yeah, Anime is Japanesse. So show some pride, Americans make good shows and cartoons too.

Why is anime looked down upon you ask? Anime is looked down on because it is 5 thousand times better than any american cartoon and american cartoonists only wish that they could draw that good. anime forever!!!!

Hmm, it could possibly be because of the anime fan stereotype, or the fact that it's not mainstream enough for people to get the correct or more favorable sense of what it's all about.

But if someone tells me that anime is lame, I have to ask why, and they usually have no sound arguments. It's just due to ignorance on their part.

Yeah, they probaly dont realize that there is at least some anime out there that one can really relate or connect to. Some of the plot lines can be really deep and complex ,but the stereotype just kicks in and they say its just "kid stuff."

People are entitled to their opinions but criticizing and really putting it down is a a bit out of hand.

This signature violates the signature guidelines, thus it has been removed.
