One who has a particular dislike for anime because of the different style of animation, the generic plots and characters in some anime, the fact that some anime can be pornographic and possibly a distaste for the number of people who like anime. The common anime hater will usually have no actual reason to hate anime besides that it may seem weird as the animation is a bit strange at first. Others may hate it because there is some anime porn or "hentai" which is meant for an older audience and although most anime does not contain any pornographic material there is still some out there that does so anime haters generalize all anime to be pornographic causing a hate for anime. Also there is a large amount of anime out there that can be classified in the fantasy genre (most anime in this genre are very badly thought out and plots seem too feel cheesy and generic) a large number of anime haters just don't dig the fantasy genre. Some people may just hate anime because of particular fans that they know. Some anime fans choose not to tell anyone that they are an anime fan because there may be someone in their school who talks nonstop about anime so they feel awkward mentioning to anyone in school. People also may not want to watch anime for the same reason, that reason being that they may know a HUGE anime fan who talks nonstop about it and so it makes anime seem weird to them.
Because of his extreme distaste for it's style of animation the anime hater flagged an episode of Cowboy Bebop angering fans of the show.

The anime hater explained to her friend that she thought anime seemed stupid to her and that she did not want to watch it.

When the anime hater stated that all anime was gay I replied "although most anime is rather dumb around 10 shows actually stand out as very entertaining and original.

Reverse Fanboys.
Anime haters are the equally annoying opposite of anime fankids.
Deluded into thinking they are normal, well adjusted people devoid of flaws.

Consider it their duty and right to belittle others under some ridiculous notion of normality. Like these people are suddenly saints. But, they only decide to crusade against people who like Japanese cartoons. Yeah let's not worry about Darfur, or war or terrorists, or bigots or child abuse, yeah you take those cartoon watchers down a fuckin' peg. You paragons of social interaction.

These equally obsessed fools can be seen online blathering about how normal they are and how much of a life they have, simply because they aren't hardcore into anime. They are however, hardcore into trolling the internets looking for fights. Which is totally what well adjusted social dynamos are famous for.

Are known for using stereotypical extremes to justify being douchebags. Judging anime (not movies or magazines) by the worst examples and ignoring the rest (just like fanboys do!)
Lump all anime fans into an convenient to despise group of perverts because it's easy.

Think that spending all their time looking for obsessed people to make fun of isn't at all hypocritical.

Think that being obsessed about Japanese cartoons is a serious issue, despite all the horrible things going on in the world. These idiots think anime viewing is bad. Signs that these "normal" people really have little worries or priorities. Normal people however, have bigger problems. Nobody gives a shit but you haters. The rest of us don't give a crap about what cartoons someone watches. People with lives, girlfriends and jobs who get out of the house wouldn't have time to give a shit.

The only people that give a rat's ass about anime fankids are people who spend all day online or lame ass teens who hate whatever is trendy to hate.

Let's not kid ourselves, anime haters don't give a shit about being normal. They are petty assholes who need to pick on people and anime hating is easy and popular. If these people were as normal as they say they'd be offline living their fabulous lives rather than being online ensuring everyone that they have them.
So let me get this straight, that guy dressed as a cartoon character laughing with his friends makes you so angry that you felt the need to call him a fag? Where on Earth is that "normal"? What is this, junior high?
Why can't you just dislike anime? Why go that extra step and become anime haters? They're just as annoying.

Opposite of the Anime Fanboy. Just as annoying. The other side of the same douchy coin.

Someone who dislikes anime (and more often and importantly, it's fans) to such to a point that "hater" is applied. This usually implies a dislike for something no matter what. Without exception.

Just as anime fankids go on and on about how testicle tickling anime is and why Jesus would have loved it. Anime haters go on and on about why tentacle porn and Dragonball Z with bring about Armageddon and how they totally hate obsessed people that aren't the obsessed people obsessed over the obsessed people obsessed with anime.

More often than not spend a tremendous amount of time online picking fights with anime fans. Then, referring to them as obsessive and/or defensive or, overly sensitive when they fight back. They tend to move beyond the state of simply disliking the format and into a state where they are more concerned with confronting anime fans with said dislike to the point of obsession. It's not enough to not watch anime, the anime. They need to belittle those that do.
Usually resort to petty annoyance tactics and trolling when confronted by an intelligent response or counter argument.

Invariably resort to the same tired set of tactics, responses and examples such as cosplay, tentacle porn and Dragonball Z. As if cherry picking the worst examples is somehow a good way to gauge a whole style of art (not including sub-genres).

You can dislike anime all you want and be a normal person who simply doesn't dig anime. It takes a certain kind of asshole to be considered an anime hater though.
If an anime hater held every format of entertainment by the inconceivable scrutiny they hold anime to, in terms of judging said format by the least of it's peers, these poor people wouldn't do anything at all.

These people hate anime so much, it turns into an obsession. They think they are the definition of a pure, normal human being -- I guess by being normal, you mean by constantly cursing at fans, being a dick, being a xenophobe and a homophobe? They often bite off the heads of anime fans for liking a "cartoon". If anime is a cartoon (some people say it's not, some say otherwise), then why are you bitching about it?
Why won't you anime haters leave us alone and let us watch our anime? We're not doing anything to you!

And just because we watch anime, doesn't mean we're FAGS!

1.People whom dislike anime without having an idea of what each anime is about, and without watching anime. They just hate it because pop culture tries to either emulate or make fun of it, so they decide to be a big part of pop culture. (These people aren't very open to good ideas)

These people seem to consist of wiggers, jocks, and preps.
Prep: Oh you like that Pokemon crap?
Me: Ehm... Anime is more then just Pokemon fuckface

Individuals who have either never seen decent anime, or who are simply conceited and refuse to believe that the American version of televised entertainment is so pathetic it's actually embarrassing. Serial Experiments Lain was so good it was actually required course material at MIT for several classes concerning technology and modern society.
What anime haters are missing out on:
1. Serial Experiments Lain.
2. Texhnolyze.
3. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GiG.
4. Ghost in the Shell: Innocence as well as Solid State Society (movies).
5. Haibane Renmei.

hmm.. looks like we have another dumbass here. you seem to have a good arguement against people who are obsessed with anime, but you dont realize that you have no reason in your arguement to hate anime yourself. i guess you just proved that other guy right, you hate it because it is popular with the loser crowd, not becuse you think there's something wrong with anime. preps are fucking bastards, jocks too. i'm not saying i have anything against football becuase "i was unable to join the team ", it's becuse i hate those egotistical dumbasses who think they're better than everyone else becuse they can throw a ball. and really, why would he want to join a team of ass-slapping, dumbasses just to get beat up? he would almost be a bigger dumbass than you by joining a team for the reason of getting beaten up.
good luck with "McDonalds". i'm sure you definitely deserve to work in such a great facility as that if you can't even spell it.
well i'm glad you're proud for you on that 1.5 "GPA", (rounding that off with a nice C+ in science for giving your teacher head but lowering that down with a D in grammar). yeah, nice little play you wrote too, it was about as entertaining as a 10 year old runnning the special olympics. and both of you are wrong on one thing, the stereotypical anime weakling geek and the anime-hating jock. i have a friend who likes anime, although not quite obsessed with it as others, and he has joined a football team and kicked plenty of ass.
and why are you here on your computer anyways? itsn't it too "nerdy" for you? shouldn't you be going out and slapping your friends asses and throwing around balls while your parents spoil you and bribe your teachers into giving you good grades so you can go the most snobby-est, most expensive college they could afford?
seriously they should ban dumbasses like you from the internet....

A person who dislikes anime. The reason for this is usually that they had an encounter with one of anime's obsesive idiotic fans who visiously attack anyone who dosn't like the same tv shows as they do(see the definition by Asuka for the perfect example).

Some dislike it for the sometimes dull and derivitive plots, cleche's, poor animation, overhyped quality, ect.

And guess what, just because we don't like the same TV shows as you dosn't make us racists, you morons.
Anime hater: Anime is far too overated.


Anime hater: You know, you aren't doing much to change my opinion on the subject.
