What do girls think about guys who watch anime?Page 1 of 1    
I was just wondering what girls here think about anime, I know it is a big turn off to some girls, just wanted to know the proportion of girls that hate it to girls that dont. (and whether it would be beneficial or detrimental to leave in my profile)

I've watched some.. upon recommendations and enjoyed them

I truly feel it depends on how much you watch and if you become a big 'fan'... watching it endlessly and neglecting to broaden your viewing horizons.

It's fine with me. In fact, I would see it as appealingly nerdy. I don't watch it myself, but I often find myself attracted to the kinds of guys who do.

If a woman would be turned off by seeing this in your profile, wouldn't she be put off when she found out down the line? Isn't it important that any potential gf likes you for who you really are and not a version of you that is sanitized to appeal to the masses?

Everything in moderation... anime is fine as is any hobby. In fact, if you watched American Idol this last season, the second runner up looked like an anime. LOL

You mean hentai, don't you, you sly dawg?

Quite frankly, I know more women into those sorts of cartoons than men. Men seem to like other kinds of cartoons, which they grandiosely refer to as "graphic novels". I think cartoons are silly, so I think the people who enjoy cartoons too much are silly. As others have said, interests are fine; obsessions are a dealbreaker.

What's funny is, people who like anime think Trekkers are weirdos!

that's too funny, hentai, lol...

When I first read this subject title, I was thinking he was talking about something along that subject line and even looked up anime prior to responding.

lol...my daughter is a huge anime fan..so I think of it more as a teen thing.

But hey, if it's your hobby and you enjoy it...do whatever blows your back. If it's not her thing though, just don't expect your lady to sit and watch it with you..maybe make it a private obsession

Nothing wrong with anime OP, just like there's nothing wrong with Grey's anatomy. Doesn't mean you'll catch me dead watching Grey's anatomy lol but each to their own, some people won't mind it and some will.

Most women do not know enough about it to be appalled by it.

Ladies, Hentai is basically Japanese cartoons about sex with underage girls, and other very sick and discusting things.

They're not cartoons they're like..soap operas for COOL PEOPLE. A lot of them are quite serious...i'm willing to bet I could give you a title that brings you to tears. =)

...no homo. Had to say it.

Just like everything else, even hentai has it's own little sub-genres. Lolicon, Shotacon, Guru, all sorts of weird stuff. So you can't just assume that when someone says Hentai that they mean all that weird/freaky stuff. (And no, I don't watch hentai, I'm not into cartoon sex but I don't really have anything against it.)

Anime on the other hand is generally movies, and there is a fair few that are really good. Maybe introduce them to one that you really enjoyed (dubbed, not subbed for a first impression because until you get used to it no one wants to read while watching a movie). Something "big" like Spirited Away, Akira, or Princess Mononoke perhaps?

And it was actually a past girlfriend of mine who got me into watching anime periodically, so there are girls out there who like it.

Anime is awesome. I grew up w/ 2 older brothers, so I dig a lot things most chicks wouldn't. But it all depends on what kind of anime my guy is watching. If it's Marmalade Boy or Peach Girl, then we'd have to have a chat....

Bleach rules!

Hentai, Porn
To-may-to, To-mah-to

Same difference. Some people like it real, others like it animated. Same thing.

I have never had a problem with it. All of the anime that I have watched is good.
It isn't like it makes you a better/worse person anyways. Why would it matter?

Cartoons and porn. Neat. I remembr when a twenty-something guy friend admitted he had a crush on the Little Mermaid. He blushed and said, "Well, she's so pretty and sweet and all." I thought he was a creep then and I still do. It's a cartoon, FFS. Pen and ink and animation. COME ON! Welcome to the real world of non-Disney women.

Tell you what, I'll get you a subscription to Hustler so you can fantasize to (more or less) human women.

I disagree.

Anime is not just a cartoon.

There was one I watched that was far more sophisticated than a cartoon and dealt with a child's death in WW2.

I have always hated anime. I always hear "but you haven't seen the right one". How many times must I torture myself with it to know I really hate it.

Sorry, my geek qualities lay in other areas.
