Yeah I somewhat enjoy anime. Some pieces are either fantastically beautiful or hilariously funny, which is what I love. Of course there are (as mentioned) bad aspects of anime but this isn't really surprising considering that every genre in the world has bad along with the good.

I don't get why people give their friends a hard time for liking anime. Perhaps because they think it's like watching childrens cartoons. Fool on them I say.

Couldn't have said it any better.
I love the really deep meaninful and beautiful ones. But I can also enjoy some funny ones

I love anime. Currently in the middle of watching Dragonball...again.

I like a few shows. Dragon Ball Z Kai, Death Note, and Fooly Cooly are about all the ones I like. I already bought all the seasons of Dragon Ball Z and the dub is pretty weak at time. But, now I am buying all the season sets of Dragon Ball Z Kai due to a much better script and voice acting. Plus, all the filler and endless screaming has been taken out and that shitty techno music is gone.

Used to really like anime. As I've gotten older I have started to kind of hate it. It's all pretty lame and predictable. I'd rather read/watch something from the west

Hate the translated American versions because their so cheesy.

In most cases the American dubs are quite accurate. The jap dub is just as lame. You don't speak the language so you can't pick up on how lame it really is.

I usually like anime. I like some anime music. Sometimes, though, the constant "kawaii"s and "OMG JAPANESE > AMERICAN" of the fans gets on my nerves.

ZOMG POKI STIX! Kawaiiii! ^___^

I can see how that could be annoying. I just distance myself from those kinds of fans. I like some anime from time to time, but the whole weeaboo culture is just something that I can't understand.

Only popular because of those tits. She's annoying as hell.

I've watched some anime, all of the ones I've seen are great though. Cowboy Bebop is probably my favourite.

It's definitely one of my favorite means of entertainment.
Hentai is awesome as well, nowhere else could I see some chick grow tentadicks and go on a rampage in Tokyo city.
Also Lolicon for the win.

I have always been fascinated by anime, because they always seemed more detailed than American cartoons. We were lucky to have some really decent shows that could compete with anime, like "Avatar: The Last Airbender". I appreciate it as much as I appreciate any other form of entertainment, be it western animation or live-action TV. It is great how the Japanese use animation as a form of art.

I enjoy anime. I am not one of the people who constantly run around shouting random japanese words and stuff like that, though.

I have to tolerate it because my girlfriend likes it, and she hangs out with those "pretend to be crazy by saying LOLRANDUM stuff and cussing in places and ways that are inappropriate in the given situation" anime weirdos that finger themselves over some spiky haired pussy that isn't even real.

I like anime. It's like an alternative to tv, and I don't watch any tv. Plus, it allows me to follow a pretty linear story most of the time, which is just something I don't get in American tv.

Good animes:
Kanon
Clannad
Suzuka
Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom
Claymore
Full Metal Alchemist
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya
Big Windup!
Gantz
And there's tons of other ones out there.

BAD ANIMES:
Ouran Host Club
School Rumble
And there's tons of other ones out there.

And those are about the only animes I've watched. I normally go for serious animes, and I don't really like the silly ones.

At first I (jokingly) laughed at my friends for watching such heresy, then eventually I tried out Gurren Lagann. I was not disappoint. It had kick-ass people in kick-ass robots doing kick-ass things. Another thing I noticed is that more is "acceptable" over there so the creators have a more to work with than if it was an American based show ( can't speak for Europe since I don't watch their TV), but for those skeptical about anime, I suggest finding one that has some good ratings, take an evening and watch it, but more than likely it will be worth it.

Let's just say the english dubs (most of the time) and the fan obsession sucked.

I enjoy anime as much as the next guy but there's some people who actually wished Japan won WW2 due to this obsession.

I enjoy anime from time to time. It's hard for me to stay into some series because there are so many episodes to a series. I just don't have time.

I've always thought anime was the side effect of too many nukes.

There's some good stuff, and I've appreciated it more than western animation recently.

I love it, but I don't go crazy with it. It's a lot of fun to watch, and I'll check out any anime that looks good. But I don't see it as a superior or inferior form of entertainment. I just think it's refreshing and different. I love anything that's cel-animated because you just don't see that anymore with anything. It's all CG if it's not live action. It keeps the artform of cel-animation alive because it takes animation more seriously. Most of the time in America, if you think of cartoons you think of bunnies and kittens with celebrity voices. But with anime, there's a much more broad variation, sometimes it's serious, sometimes it's naive. You don't know what to expect. So yeah, I love it, I watch it, but I don't go nuts eating pocky while masturbating to Dragon Ball Z.

Damn, I hate Naurto these days it sucks because all they do is fucking cry and talk! Even if it goes to a fight I find that they somehow made THE FIGHTS BORING! Its sad because I grew up with that show.
