I was just watching Elegant Yokai Apartment episode 15. In one scene There is an English club that has an event and they decided to translate an anime movie into English. They have a new student who joined the club and she asked “Why anime?” Yadda Yadda Yadda then proceeded to say “Anime is for little kids!” 😱😱😡😡
Now I know many of us have run into this situation where someone says anime is for kids. It does frustrate me every time I hear it. I think people say this because they are not open minded and didn’t give anime a chance. They just see animation and automatically think cartoon.
Now, the shows I like which are Horror and psychological majority of those are NOT and I mean are NOT for kids. I.e Attack on Titan, Elfen Lied, Tokyo Ghoul, Another and especially Corpse Party. I say teens can watch it but little kids omg who knows what kind of trauma they will have. Haha Then there are some series out there that aren’t so bloody and crazy but have adult content and kind of similar to some HBO, Showtime series like Gangsta, Michiko and Hatchin, Berserk, and Black Lagoon.
If the person or people who think anime is for kids try a series that is Similar to what they already watch on tv it may change their mind. They just have to find the genre they are into.
I want to make the whole world into anime lovers. Hahaha
Please tell me of your experience if anyone has ever said this to you?
