I have a buddy who watches anime, but doesn’t defend it. He just likes it. I can dig that.
What I don’t get, however, are the people who defend anime like it’s some kind of art form.
Hey, knuckleheads, it’s a fucking cartoon. That’s it. A cartoon.
Just because it’s made in Japan doesn’t make it anything special. It’s no different from The Simpsons or Family Guy. And watching a cartoon from Japan doesn’t make you elite.
Come out of the basement of the science building, kids. You’re defending cartoons.
