Japanimation, or the Japanese term for animation, whichever you prefer. Yes, not all Anime is good and it's not for everyone. The people who are bashing it either have not seen it or they saw the shit that Cartoon Network airs. That's why I don't watch it (Cartoon Network) anymore. I don't know many people who obsess over it so bad they talk about it 24/7. I sure as hell don't talk about it all the time like some others probably would. There is some good Japanese animation out there, like Cowboy Bebop, Serial Experiments Lain and GTO and most of it is cliche`d and such. I like Manga better anyway because its cheaper and the story is more detailed.
The people here that slam Anime are just dumbasses/bullies who are pissed off at the world and have nothing else better to do than to slam what other people like. At least I have a job, jerkoffs.
