I stick to manga. And rarely read it. Ruined in part by the internet.

I don't necessarily "dislike" anime. I just don't see what all the hype is about.
I can say this with absolute certainty because I've seen the series and all of the films associated with it and read all of its manga. There are many subtle nuances about that fan art that separate it completely from the reference material. It's someone's interpretation of it.
It's a fact that there are a lot of series with very similar art styles and that it definitely gets repetitive. There's a mountain of 'me-too' shows that all look the same, but that's just not what the show or the movies from the 90's look like and really it's not even that similar to the style of the new movies.
I've watched a few animes and they always end up having something of the sort for no reason other than... who knows who the hell wants thousands of animes filled with teens with huge fucking boobs involved in anything that can and seemingly couldn't get them naked doing anything perverted and stupid stories.
Well then you've been watching the wrong shows because I just got done watching two which both had a girl with big boobs but there was no scene with ripped or minimal clothing
I meant tit-wise
She only looks big-breasted because she is wearing a plug suit. They're supposed to be skin-tight.
Her breasts don't stand out when she's wearing normal clothes.
The dislike of anime is bullshit. Anime is just Japs interpretation of cartoons.
But I can truly understand and support the hatred on weaboo fags.
Which can be defined by preffering a perverted cliche of what they believe to be asian-culture and are traitors to their own.
Both anime-haters(western cartoon prefering) and weaboos(asian cartoon prefering) are shitheads who have to be
stabbed with a good piece of reality.
It is just fiction- in general ment for children or teenies.
The best way to cure such decadent over-overestimate of childish fiction
is to be German, by the way : D
For educational porpuse; that my children is the typical weeaboo:
Unproofed statement. By the way the point of interest of me was NOT the age.
That doesn't matter to me because all who are in their mid 20s(25 to 30) and still
have video-games, cartoons and such stuff as their hobbies [sic!] are
men/woman-children in my opinion or just retarded on welfare or just
have no work and no friends.
I am mainly enraged by all those guys who cling to such "activities";
just 2 decades ago in the 90s anime was mainly gurls stuff, as
fiction should be. The only fiction acceptable for males is science-fiction,
but not all that fairy-ass-fantasy-bullshit of nowadays.
It is just a close step from Harry Potter to Twilight.
I guess it must be a result of the over-feminisation through
leftist sexual-agenda in western states...
It has the same problems as reality tv.
1) It's cheap to produce.
2) It's susceptible to use of cliche stories and cookie cutter characters because of the above fact.
That being said not all anime is like this. I have enjoyed a fair many decent story arches which were well thought out and animated. Anime in general just leans to the faults mentioned above.
I do not like how they completely ignore the laws of gravity and such half the time. Not say there are none that do, but I dislike the ones that go from unrealistic to what the fuck am I watching.
Especially the ones that are about real events.
Anime seems to receive special treatment because it's culturally exotic. It's a medium that's important to a different culture that's found its way elsewhere and has been judged under cultural prejudice. It sucks for trying to expand in certain foreign countries (read: USA), but that's not its fault. I would talk about the cartoon ghetto but I'd be beating a dead horse.
The arguments that people make about its content -- indistinguishable art style and plot -- could be applied to any other area, like film. Common ideas of aesthetic style and common plot elements are called genres, and genres are pervasive through all forms of entertainment.
The hardcore anime fan is fundamentally identical to hardcore movie buffs or bookworms, but the stereotype is that they're obnoxious weaboos. I think the agenda for hating anime comes from hating the stereotypical fan. Prejudice not entirely in the sense of being unfamiliar, but sticking to a faulty opinion in spite of learning new information. Hating a few annoying people shouldn't poison the well for you. I hate with a fiery passion douchey film critics who cast aside Inception 'because an art house flick did it first', but they don't ruin movies for me as a whole.
In my eyes it's just another medium so it should be regarded as such. I don't think people should write it off entirely without exploring it a little -- if the entertainment doesn't entertain you, what have you lost from trying?
What I'm trying to say is yes; the general dislike of anime is unwarranted.
Edit: Also Sailor Bubba is a special case.
not to mention anime has some badass music
I'm probably going to get my head chewed off for this, but I'm a big fan of Naruto Shippuden. Yeah yeah, I know, "HURR DURR BELIEVE IT PLOT NO JUTSU FLASHBACKS ERRYWHERE". As ridiculous as an anime/manga it can be, it was one of the first ones I really got into when I was younger. All of the dialogue and lack of fighting can be annoying sometimes, but it can be worth it when you finally get to see some action. I'm not some crazy kawaii desu~~~ weaboo for watching a ridiculous anime, I'm still a regular guy.
So yes, a lot of the dislike is unwarranted. Some of it is justified, even I find stuff like Lucky Star annoying and stupid, but a lot of the hatred isn't necessary.
I think a big problem with anime is the impenetrable Japanese-yness of it. Created by Japanese for Japanese, it's the exception when something can resonate with the West. This is compounded by recent anime catering to very specific niches - who will consistently pay good money for something they may have seen many times before. If you don't like an anime then it's probably not intended for you. If you like when you're not the intended audince, more power to ya.
Of course, the often poor animation and writing - largely due to constrained budgets and historically getting away with it - may put people off.
American TV is too stable, Anime breaks boundary's and actually have good stories.
Personally, I just dislike the drawing and general style of animes/mangas. I just don't dig the style in which characters are presented. Except for a few mangas that I found quite good.
But I often associate Mangas/Animes with stupid memeshit and other fucked up pictures, which is a fault from my part.
Besides I do not like the plots, although some are bloody brilliant. But there are many stupid ones.
Probably has been said already, but I'm just going to get the point further across.
There are dozens of good anime and manga. The infamy of it is mostly to blame on the wank mainstream anime dominating the media, and the people watching it giving the whole thing a bad name with their behaviour.
I'm not afraid to state in public that I enjoy anime and manga greatly, liking various aspects of japanese culture as well. I just do not act like a "weaboo" tool generally, or if I get a rare urge to do so, keep that in companies related. You'll be surprised that not all anime is based around "uguu kawaii/harem" stuff.
If anyone regards me as a hikikomori weaboo virgin after, woe on them for being ignorant. Breaking stereotypes here.
Also I went to a special Manga store, I picked up the most promising sounding books, they were pretty meh to me.
