I would be the one who destroys all of the anime ever.

Especially the Japanese anime.

Anime is full of blood, violence, and in the Japanese versions, swearing and sex.

And it's a cartoon, so some parents assume it's okay to watch.

I am against anime.

Wikipedia on anime wrote:Outside Japan, the term most popularly refers to animation originating in Japan. To the West, not all animation is considered anime; anime is considered a subset of animation.
All anime is technically Japanese. :P Also, anime is a style of cartooning, not a sub-plot referring to violence, sex, gore, etc. This is coming from a guy that hates the same things you do in animes.

When I said Japanese Anime, I'm referring to the unedited versions of the subset of cartooning known as anime originating in Japan. Like this thing I saw yesterday on youtube before I closed it. Here's what happened:

There's a guy with a sword through his lung lying on the ground. Another guy laughs and steps on the sword. Gushing blood sprays from the wound and the man on the ground screams horrifyingly in agony and the man stepping on the wound laughs evilly. Then some things happen (maybe a scene change, I don't know) and there's a topless girl being dragged away by the waist so that she is bending backwards.

Not the kind of thing I'd want my kids watching. If I had kids.

Thank you.

The only way it's different is that anime doesn't use real people to display this, which you'd think would make it easier to detach your real life from what you see on TV. :roll:

I dislike the way the animation looks, and the stories all seems to be made of fail. I mean, half-naked guys yelling for 5 minutes, then blasting energy at each other, and then they stand their panting. And people say SpongeBob is stupid...

Newer episodes of SpongeBob are completely retarded. I really like the way anime looks, and just because it isn't as fluid as western animation doesn't mean it sucks. Apparently you are stereotyping that all anime is like Dragonball-Z. It is not. However, I do hate those long monologues. Also I have decided what anime character I want to be:


BO-BO-BO!

SpongeBob is stupid, and to be fair, DBZ kinda is too. :lol: What you need to do is not group the plots of all anime in together. There are many many kinds of anime I do not enjoy... probably most of them, in fact. But it's all far too different to group together like that.

Also, do you mind telling me why you're posting here if you dislike anime so? Is it just to raise your post count? ^-^

You can't be in more than one place at once, so you have to pick which Tenchi. Tenchi Muyo! Tenchi, or Tenchi Universe Tenchi, etc. That whole alternate universe thing confused the hell out of me at first, but then it occured to me as an ingenious way to get multiple, conflicting ideas for your show and character out there without screwing up continuity.
either tenchi muyo tenchi or the universe one, but tenchi in tokyo was made of fail, havent seen GPX so i cant say about that one

dont blame the show for parents not DOING THEIR JOB AS A PARENT, that makes you as bad as jack tompson and his ilk, i like anime because the good ones have deep involved storylines and detailed characters and are quality entertainment versus the CRAP that hollywood blows out its butthole, most american movies are 10x worse than anime for cussing violence sex etc. and in japan they can differentiate between shows made for kids (pokemon etc) and other anime intended for more mature individuals (bleach and stuff for teens and adults, plus hentai etc)

me and my friends "made" bokens and pretended to be samurai. you're not alone.
at least we arent as lame as david huh! my friend david dresses as Byakuya Kuchiki for tae kwon do class and has the shingami logo TATTOOED ON HIS ARM! :lol:

If I tell you, I just raise my post count again. :| I really don't care about my post count, it could be changed to zero for all I care (as long as my posts aren't deleted).

Kurt_ posted his opinion, you bashed it, so I came to his defense, showing that not all geeks are slaves to crappy animation and names you can't pronounce. You can bash me all you want, thats my opinion, that anime sucks. Did I say that you guys are stupid for liking it? No, because thats your choice.

@benol: I know the newer SpongeBob episodes suck, but overall the show is good. Better than the crap the Disney Channel has on now.

Some of the older spongebob episodes were pretty good. I mean when it was just starting.

That one episode called The Suds was pretty hilarious. :lol:
