Anime is a type of cartoon originating in japan. The fans of these cartoons are called Weaboos, these people are not only annoying but they are just bad people. From katana collections to body pillows, this culture is a disease...

No. Anime is one of the biggest kinds of entertainment today. Just compare the amount of people that like the Big Bang Theory to the people that like Sword Art Online or Fairy Tail. Anime may not be for all people, but for the people who want to sit down and get immersed into the show (which you can't do with the Big Bang theory) love this kind of entertainment.

@earmuffs That's very sure. Not just anime, a lot of things on TV and the net is like that, just look at Nicki Minaj's Anaconda.

"ALL the fanatics I know"... ALL fanatics are weird, Koodle, not only anime fanatics. "[G]irls that dress provocatively and have big boobs", sure, but if a kid knows how to search hentai, he can search for porn, which in my book is more provocative. And of course, most animes have sh*t stories, but so do most movies, tv shows and books. I can seriously say that modern anime have the best graphics of any cartoon or animation.

Koodle0101, I don't quite agree with you. There are a lot of good anime out there not just a few. Also, you should really be careful with the word "always" as there will be exceptions.

Now, you say that " The main guy will always have multiple girls fall left and right over him....". It's true as that is a category, type or genre of anime. It's like Michael Bay's Transformers. A lot of people hate Bay's Transformers but the films still manage to have good box office. It is because that particular category, type or genre has appeals to certain audiences.

There are really mature themed anime like Fate Zero that makes you reflect on things, I highly recommend it.

I totally agree with you!!! Saying "Anime is a huge form of entertainment in society" is proving point that it's a problem. Some are okay, but a lot of them are simply made to cater to young boys and girls to brain wash them out of reality and it creates a weird view of real life.

They're always filled with girls that dress provocatively and have big boobs. The main guy will always have multiple girls fall left and right over him and usually all live with him and follow him around for no reason. 90% of them have no parents and don't mind living in the same house or being around a bunch of other girls that are trying to get him. Or for girls it's always the mean, super tall, super smart, super intelligent, super popular, super rich, super powerful, super handsome, super everything guy that falls for the girl. All that combined with a bunch of fighting and/or weird perverted humor. Most of them have a pretty bad story or no story at all.

There are some people that can enjoy some Anime and be okay. But ALL the fanatics I know are usually very lonely and weird in real life. They aren't alive in school or at work and their social life is dry and empty. They always dress and act like they're in an Anime or want to be in one. I've even tried to watch some to see what it's all about and cannot stand how poorly written a lot of them are, including: Sword Art Online, No Game No Life, Attack On Titan (was only decent), Gintama, etch.

Keep in mind that this is most of the Anime. There are a few good ones that are actually clever, well written, and can be considered a classic work of art. But we're talking majority of them here.
