This is bound to cause controversy (  evil laugh )

What is so bad about Anime (apart from it's fanatics)? I saw only one anime show, (pokemon) and it certainly appeals to younger viewers. Anyone who bashes anime is knocking a tradition from the earliest days of animation: simplicity. That is what the anime-type generation of animators try to convey: Simplicity, Sensuality and Spirituality. The idea behind this is to stimulate the mind, the libido, and the soul.

It's only the fans that deserve to be bashed/mocked. The ideas behind Anime, and possibly some animes are good in principle. Give it a chance.

Just do not subscribe to the Nurdbot school of thinking and let it rule you to the extent that it annoys others.  no no

Thoughts please...

I wont lie, I'm not a fan of anime at all but the main reason I hate it is because Nurdbot polluted this board with it. The other reason I hate it is because of Pokemon & Digimon & any other mon.

Nurdbot, I would like an explanation as to why I was banned from your anime board, I did'nt do much now did I?

Well, I couldn't make any sense of that, so I'd like a translation please   smile Unfortunately they don't have a 'nurdbot' function on altavista   smile
I actually don't mind a little anime here and there. I find it quite amusing, and the stupid mega monster anime is so cheesy, you gotta love it. Like mad capper says, It's not so much of a problem with anime, it's the obsessors that give anime a bad name.

Sarcasm? Well, we have been practising. I'm talking about the mega robot cartoons they show on crappy TV channels like access TV. It's like 'bride of godzilla' but anime.

Don't confuse anime with porn. Use a Venn Diagram and you'll realize all hentai is anime, but all anime is not hentai, or has to end with -mon for that reason. All anime you may have seen looks the same, but all anime is not the same.

Besides, Anime was Japan's only answer to recover economically from WWII. It is cheaper to produce than live-action films and TV shows. Anime and manga were to be made since there was no budget for other forms of entertainment.

Like I said, Bride of godzilla. Z grade crap that's just so cool. It falls under the same grade as 'attack of the killer condom' (Which is an actual movie...)

and what can i expect from a movie that is called attack of the killer condom?
wait, is this the movie in which a gay cop fights against a condom with teeths? because if it's this movie i have seen it! it is based on a german comic called "kondom des grauens" by ralf könig.
it was a very crappy movie but not even trashy enough to be funny.

PIKA!. Don't confuse hentai (jap pr0n) and regular anime (relatively pr0n-free) - they are quite different.

There is a wealth of top notch anime out there. And 'simple' doesn't apply to any aspect of it. Check out Princess Mononoke if you don't believe me. Or Akira, Ninja Scroll, Ghost In The Shell, My Neighbour Totoro (just a fantastic film, period), Patlabor 1 & 2 or Cowboy Bebop. All are readily available in the UK with the exception of Totoro and Bebop (expect that to change next year) and all have high quality animation, grown-up characters, complicated morality, intricate plotting and mind blowing action (except Totoro which is just mind-blowingly beautiful).

Check em out - all are highly recommended as starting points for the anime-phobic.

Ya I have a severe hatred of anime, but my "friend",who tries to pull me into that world, got me to watch Princess Mononoke, but the thing is, I actually loved the hell out of it. I want to see it again...go see it, fools.

The director's work is in a class of it's own. Hayao Miyazaki makes movies like nobody else on the planet, but Disney bought his back-catalogue and are sitting on them, very slowly releasing them with a minimum of fanfare, so as not to threaten their own stranglehold on feature animation. Bastards. My Neighbour Totoro is one of his, as is the excellent Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind.

Hey Clyde, ever seen Trigun? That's one of my favorites, though it's not really so deep as Mononoke and the like. The entire series is... multinational. The main character speaks in French, English, German, and Japanese during the series, and it's got a funky Japan/Wymoming feel to the background and building design. I'd even say it's a better anime than Cowboy Bebop.

Ninja Scroll was weird, to say the least.  Just weird, and just wrong in some places.

I can't understand how people can find Hentai or Anime so exciting, is it the graphics (which I must say are totally crapola)?? Is it the stories and the plots?? What??

The graphics are actually pretty darn good in some animes. The stories and plots are cool too, in the ones I watch. Like I said, it's a bit like a book delivered chpter by chapter. I think one part of the appeal is that the artists can easily create a different world. I mean, some live action movies are cool just because of the settings and backgrounds and the way things look, and it's not hard to do that with anime.
