A stuck up type of Cartoon that thinks it's better because it is Japanese.
Person no 1: Lets watch spongebob
Person no 2: Naw, Cartoons are for kids... Lets watch anime, how about Pokemon?
Animation originating from Japan
containing the best imaginary women possibly, badass guys, and beautiful music all in one package. Plenty of anime shows out there though not all of them are awesome as well not all of them suck. Not to be confused with hentai
which is... porn.
Boy: "Hey you wanna watch some anime with me on FUNimation?"
Girl: "Sure, I love anime!"
a common term for japanese animation, usually based off of manga
(japanese graphic novels). it often recieves hate here in the western world because some people havent really seen it or they think all animation is for children. usually, with the exception of studio bones, the animation itself is very lack-luster. something comon i've read here on urban dictionary is that its, "the legal way to jerk it to an 8 year old.", this is not true, while many anime's do actually have quite a bit of sexual humor, you cant call it that. however it has recieved much popularity here for the teenage demographic as well. also another thing is people known as weeaboo
, people who get WAAAAAAAAAY over obsessive over anime, and otaku
, the japanese term for a geek, or in america's case, people who are really into anime but dont exactly cross into weeaboo terratory, are shut ins with no life, again not true.
guy: hey lets go watch some cowboy bebop
anime hater: yeah its the only one of those animes thats actually any good
Okay, drumroll please...... Anime is simply fun. F, U, N, FUN. It's entertainment, just like hockey (yes I watch hockey), football, or Looney Toons. I for one laugh my ass off at Daffy Duck, but enjoy Speed Racer, I root for the Blackhawks and still like watching Shaman King. Im a huge fan of most anime because you can learn a lot from the characters, as they are usually extreme versions of a feeling or emotion. Take Goku from DBZ. He protects the earth to keep his friends safe, sounds like extreme loyalty, no? We can all learn the lessons that are tought through anime, but still smoke pot and play football. Kuhmbaya bitches.
We will face this monster of nature with our heads held high and no fear in our hearts!-Ryu/Rio the Dead ender. Shaman King
Guy 1: hey dude, wanna get stoned, watch some Shaman king, bleach, naruto, or sailor moon, then go watch the Hawks smash the Blues?
Guy 2: Fuck yeah. I love anime, sports, and weed!
Guy 3: Can I come too?
Guys 1 and 2: Hellz yeah!
Me: Yus! -raves-
The Asian equivalent of American cartoons, except have more depth and meaning and are not meant exclusively for 12-year-olds. There's many different genres of it, and can be meant for kids, all the way up to seniors. It's not a fucking cartoon.
*le me watching Bleach*
Dumbshit "friend": Dude, why are you watching cartoons??
Dumbshit "friend": So cartoons?
Me: THERE'S A GODDAMN DIFFERENCE YOU FUCKPUMP!
To those haters, watch Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei, and clear your fail definitions.
Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei is a satirical take on Japanese society with deep sometimes subliminal messages...
Yes there are shots of Kaeru's pants which is a stab at the overly perverse hentai
or borderline H.
Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei has no OVERLY BIG EYES, or RIDICULOUS COLORS, and does not feature tentacles or rape.
If you have watched Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei, you would agree that anime is completly different from half these definitions.
ALSO, the colorful hair is because all JAPANESE have BLACK hair, if two characters had the same hair style it would be impossible to tell the difference. They do not have the liberty of mutlicoloured hairstyles like Westerns do and seek to rectify by using abstract colours for CLEAR definition.
Another form of story telling that uses animation as its medium. Just like how books use text, movies use actors. Anime uses animation to tell the story, and can be very serious or very funny.
Either way anime is just another way of telling a story, all stereotypes attached to it are unnecessary.
Have you watched Monster? That is one of the darkest anime I've ever seen... It really goes deep into the humanity of good vs evil.
