Is it true that people make fun of those who watch Anime in USA in the past ?

  • 11

I know about this through Trash Taste Podcast, in the podcast they said that in the early 2000s, people who watch Dragon Ball or Naruto always got laugh at just because its Anime. Can someone in USA confirm if this is true or not ? Thank you

Wow, now i feel lucky that im born in Asia xD, not the best place int he world but we are pretty chill about everything (at least in my place)


It's pretty much a don't broadcast it or you'll be labeled a weeb/neckbeard.

 

IMO a good 30% of us watch it you just have to find those people if you want to talk about it.


Yep, 100% lots of being made fun of for it, much more so if it wasn't shounen.



As long as you don't act cringe about it, it's ok. Especially in college where everyone is pretty chill compared to high school.

D you guys still getting made fun of nowadays ? Cause i think Anime is pretty well-known now in the West, you cant make fun of something that is popular anymore right ?


yeah, those american pride shit

they hate on anime and tried hard to make anyone who loves it ashamed of it

yet hollywood rip anime off to make movies, and the same people who hate anime are amazed by Anime ripoff like matrix, elysium, lion king, pacific bullshit rim, etc

Honestly no one knows besides my family  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ the subject doesn't come up at work/social events.

 

If I randomly started talking about it am sure I'd be judged.
