I have no problem with Japan but with the artform known as Anime. Not only is the name itself grotesque, but the art and animation is unusually atrocious. I'm sorry to be so blunt, but Pokemon makes me want to vomit. Anime animations, with the usual 5 frames per second, have given me headaches just from the abominable color palette. Surely people would see right through it, see that they are getting ripped off the moment they set eyes on it. No, most don't. Only the 1337 few do. Mark my words, Anime is today's bubonic plague! This is a war! This is the Foundation against Anime and its Suckiness aka A.S.F

The only reason I'm not willing to deal with these people is because they can't carry on a logical argument. If someone were to come up to me and say "Anime is stupid, for [logical reason 1], [logical reason 2], and [logical reason 3]," I'd have no problem with them, just their views. It's the people who aren't worth arguing with because they think (and cannot be convinced otherwise) that anyone who opposes their views is scum that have a problem with.
Seriously, why waste time arguing with these people when it gets you nowhere? I'd rather have a logical, non hate-spamming debate in a forum such as this, myself.
EDIT: Not to mention the fact that people here are running around randomly spouting l33t.

They don't parade around the internet posting in anime-related fora with "ANIME IS TEH SUX". They stay on their turf, it's up to you if you wanna play them on their home field, you're more than welcome.
