    Not really, but I don't bring it up much. However...I think it is easy to see why anime/manga is not accepted by many.

    1. Cartoons are for kids...grow up! In the West, other than sitcoms such as the Simpsons, Family Guy, etc., cartoons and western animated films are directed at children. If you said you play with action figures (and you are over 10), you would also get flak.

    2. Anime/manga is foreign. Most people don't have any interest in foreign entertainment, weather it be movies, books, or what have you (Video games is the obvious exception). Why are you watching subtitled cartoons?

    3. Lolis. Pervert! Pervert! Pedo! Unfortunately (and I hate loli) this is present in many anime. Big breasted women and lots of sexual innuendo also doesn't reflect well.

    4. Bishounen. How is this girlie looking guy a badass? In the west, most action heroes are heavily muscled and very masculine.

    I'm sure there are others....what do you guys think?

    yes all the time

    ive heard " how do you like sports and anime, anime is for fags"
    "you are 30 and you still watch anime?"
    from my ex "you only watch anime because of the young looking girls in panties"
    my brother "if you like anything other than dbz you are a fag"
    "american comics are so much better than manga"

    and many more, but you know what?

    i dont care; and it sure beats the hell.out of reality tv or american cartoons or comics

    I don't think it is a really much of a big problem for me, since I am just changing from a geek that love novels and books and spend most of my times in my room and library to

    an otaku that love manga and anime, who spend time in my room and cyber cafes......

    Honestly, I don't see much difference except that the walls of my room has become a little "awesome"? Hahahahahahahaha............. with posters and stuffs.

    I guess I'm considered lucky all my college friends and people I talk to love anime and manga. Sometimes we get on call of duty just to talk about it. Don't really get pinned for it but finding a girl around here that does well that's a different story not many here do
