The Top Ten

1 What Got You Interested In Anime?

In middle school I saw one of my friends reading a "picture book" it was what I called it back then. It was a graphic novel of vampire kisses! I ask her where she got the book from and she told me it was at the library! I check out a few books and I started to get into it and I also start buying the books at goodwill since the were cheap to get it! I read a lot of manga and I didn't notice there was a anime until I came across it on YouTube like "The best top 10 Kisses in anime"! They were all good and came along Inuyasha! I watch My first anime and finished the series in 3 nights!

I actually got in to anime just last year around August, I didn't really know what anime was until I moved schools at the beginning of 2016, and one of my mates talked about anime all the time, trying to get me in to it, eventually I went to my mates house and his room was full of anime stuff, and he asked me if I was keen to watch some anime, and I just said, why not and then we started watching Attack on Titan and finished it on that day to. after that I've loved anime ever since, I'm already up to date with Naruto, One Piece, and DBZ Super and I've watched heaps more anime's in just the past 7 months

When I was young I was never into more serious styles of drawing and animations which is why I didn't really watch Teen Titans or Samurai Jack as a kid. Anime was in this genre of seriousness to me also. I gave it a shot with Pokemon back when I was 6 and it was OK. I really didn't start watching anime until I was 11 with my first hardcore anime Soul Eater. What drew me into to that was its art style which still carries on with me like it did when I was a kid

Because of manga! - Sugarcubecorner

2 What's Your Favorite Anime Series?

Dragon Ball Z has got to be my first and favourite anime series of all time. My brother showed me the manga when I was just 4-6, and I've been obsessed with it ever since. It's exciting, dynamic, electrifying and thrilling, with marvellous fight scenes and loveable, interesting as well as unique characters. It is part of mine, and many others', childhood, and Goku will forever be one of my best and most important friends, who taught me many lessons in life. - Goku02

I would probably choose Fairy Tail. That anime just has the perfect mixture of comedy, romance, friendship, supernatural, action and fantasy genres. Each and every one of the characters are unique in their own way and the anime has developed and become much better over the years.

If I had to pick one it would be Fullmetal Alchemist. - egnomac

PPGZ and death note are my favorite anime all time! - Sugarcubecorner

9 Which Anime Character Is Your Least Favorite?

The characters I like the least are Sakura (Naruto), Goku (DBZ), Sae (Peach Girl), and Orihime (Bleach). Sakura basically revolves around Sasuke's character and she is useless the whole first half of the series. You finally see her actually getting stronger then she gets sidelined as a support healer and does nothing until she fails at supporting the leads..again. At the end her character growth is completely negated because she's back to "kyaa-ing" over Sasuke. I don't think the writer of Naruto knew what to do with female characters so he just made them revolve around boys. Then 2nd on my list is Goku. I just don't like him. He seems disingenuous. He eats and fights and gets tricked into marrying a wife that's a shrew. He let's villain's get stronger so he can fight stronger opponents but then this leads to problems like the almost destruction of Earth or the death of his friends. He also cares little for his family as he often abandons them to train and his family is so ...more - NerdBunny

Sakura Haruno from Naruto, Asuna from Sword Art Online, Orihime from Bleach, Makoto from School Days, Nina Einstein from Code Geass, Misa from Death Note, and lastly worst of all...Louise from The Familiar of Zero.

Reading your comment made me realize you have haven't watched a single anime. Do, Don't prejudge it!

All the characters from HOTD and boku no Piku - Sugarcubecorner

10 Why Do You Get Offended If Someone Doesn't Like Anime?

I don't get offended if someone doesn't share the same opinion as me. If that person says I'm stupid or lame for liking what I like I might get a little offended. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but you don't need to be hurtful towards others just because they like or dislike something that you don't agree with. It's fine if they say they think a certain thing is dumb to them but they don't need to make it personal by calling the person that likes it dumb. There's a sliver of difference between the two responses. One is bashing a thing (anime) that isn't sentient and the other is bashing an actual person that has feelings. So yeah..go ahead and not like anime because that's your choice. I don't particularly care and I don't like it when people try to force something on me so I wouldn't try to force something on someone else. If you want to give it a try, great. If you don't then that's fine too. Just as long as you keep a civil tongue I could care less. - NerdBunny

We don't get offended with this. We got offended when someone call us, anime fans, dumb.

Ya we don't get offended but we hate when people say that they watch anime but they don't.

I won't becuase that's their opinion - BoyGenius234

I like Western Animation but anime has more appealing style and is usually detailed very well. I can only think of a couple of different anime that had horrible art style. I can think of plenty of cartoons with bad animation though. - RoseRedFlower

I think that western animation and anime can both be good or bad and this comparison is case sensitive, but I find that I prefer the detailed art style and plots of anime and.. Western animations'.. fart jokes? - Kitkatcut1e

They are more creative. Western anime is still fun though.

Better story - BoyGenius234

He doesn't. It is a rumor

Yes. I've already written him in my death note. - Kitkatcut1e

19 What do you think of Yaoi/Yuri anime?

I've seen it but it's not a genre I would recommend to casual fans. Even I only watch it on occasions. It's not because I'm homophobic. It's because they're pretty generic. - RoseRedFlower

I don't really like either. Not my taste.

I personally hate it. - Goku02

Haven't seen it - BoyGenius234

20 What Do You Think of People Saying Every Anime Is Always Gratifying Woman Sexually?

I think that anime does portray women badly. I won't deny it. But I think that there are many anime's out there that aren't bad. Just as there are bad portrayals of women in anime, there are good ones too. I think they are entitled to their opinions even if I don't see it as an issue. - Kitkatcut1e

Maybe it's because they've only see pictures of sexy anime women from the internet. However I could say that about certain superheroes. - RoseRedFlower

Excuse me? Has anyone ever read Marvel comics? Or DC? Just look up Black Widow or Wonder woman or any other comic girl...

Comic books definitely beat anime in oversexualization of women!

22 What Anime Do You Think Would Make A Great Game?

My hero academia - BoyGenius234

(This anime was based off a great game) Daganronpa - Kitkatcut1e

The Precure franchise, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS (the 2 Japanese-only PSP games years ago don't count as they were based on A's), and ViViD Strike! would make good fighting games. - PerfectImpulseX

Excel Saga! - RoseRedFlower

23 Why do animes have so much killing?

Because anime expresses emotions in an extreme way and the death of characters can be portrayed in so many ways that it can be almost necessary for a character to die every half season or so. - Kitkatcut1e

Because life is sad and people die all the time. So it would make sense why anime would feature death. - RoseRedFlower

Why do Mortal Kombat have so much killing

In death note there's killing to bring justice to the world - BoyGenius234

Why does anyone like anything? For many reasons.. the artwork, the stories, the characters. It's not just because it's anime. If I can connect with any story or character then I find worth in watching or reading something. Why should I limit myself? - NerdBunny

Because of the stories - BoyGenius234
