I thought this was a phase that every kid went through in the 4th grade. We're all adults now and I still find myself twiddling my thumbs in silence whenever Anime comes up in conversations. Is there a cure for this? Will I have to find new friends? It's really hard to find new friends when you're older.

You didn't have to call me a loser. Why are anime fans so mean? They get defensive about anime, like a fat man with a piece of cake. I guess they can't take criticism.

Edit: What kind of anime, btw? I know a film buff who has some anime and they're just normal movies. Are they watching gay anime for kids and teenagers?

Correct me if I'm wrong with the titles they watch, I only ever hear about them when they talk about them; Narutoe,Fairytale,Attacks on Titan, and that nickelodeon one. And most recently Kill la kill, I remember that being discussed on the forums here not to long ago.

Haha, this is weird poo poo for adults to suddenly get into.

That first one's like [Generic Adolescent Male Power Fantasies] and that Nickelodeon one was literally targeted at 10 - 12 year olds but, wouldn't you know it, found traction across the whole range of teens.

Hey,Larry!! Your alibi completely collapsed !!!



Just loving tolerate it. They'll coerce you to watch an episode, you won't enjoy it, life will move on.

Some anime is entertaining but it's almost all weird and if you didn't immerse yourself in Japanese games as a kid it's a difficult barrier to breach as an adult and isn't really worth the effort. Everyone has hobbies.

Ninety-one? There are ninety other "Tiger Drivers"? Do any involve actual tigers, or driving?


Watch some Attack on Titan fights with them, they're real badass and gory and very much a "I don't normally like this stuff but this is pretty good" kind of thing.

On a related note: why does every anime fan believe all anime is bad, except the ones they happen to like? Is it some kind of "I'm embarrassed, let's hope this lessens it" auto immune defence?

I guess you're right, I mean they kinda don't like it when I talk about painting. Don't knock it till I try it.

Mind your own business and let others do what they do. Being an enthusiast of a certain type of media certainly isn't hurting anything.

If you want to organize a hiking trip for yourself and your buds, nothing's stopping you. If they all decline because they'd rather watch anime, then maybe you should look for more/other friends. You seem very sociable based on your posts.
