Well you need to learn a thing or two about writing, cause I'm not completely sure what your point was. I would have to agree with 98 that 90%+ of anime sucks. Imo the same doesn't apply to movies or girls.
Ok, prince, shepherd or whatever next you are -- look here, and see the infallible chains of logic. I'll try not to use too long words to make it easier for you to follow.
You started with (completely uncalled for) thesis that anime in general sucks. This holds no more truth, than any wide-brush generalization but this is not our point now.
Having this sentiment means that you
a) have not watched much anime (why watch when it sucks?)
b) watched only rubbish, and never had a chance to see something worthy (because after this, anime, usually, suddenly stops sucking, but anime haters -- start. With great gusto).
It is pitiful, but not amazing -- after all, in most arts amount of crap greatly exceeds number of decent works. Makes it difficult to make good choice with shut eyes, but -- what is easy in this world?
This proportion was noted and recorded by a (rather good, if my memory serves me right) science fiction writer Theodore Surgeon, and therefore -- known as Sturgeon's law. But like Newton's laws it worked before him.
Since you are proven, beyond any reasonable doubt, to be familiar with only a few lousy animes -- you hardly have knowledge and experience to make statement about anime in general. Some may say that you don't know s%&# about it and should shut the #@(& up, but I did not.
After this was stated, maybe in somewhat condensed form, you, once again, with no reason, attacked poor mr. Surgeon, who, I must add -- is already dead and could not reply. Afterwards, you added that you herd sheep for living, and thus -- laws which have other people's name in it do not apply to you. No idea why you believe it makes any sense, but whatever.
I stated, that mr. Sturgeon, being a writer, probably knew a thing or two about arts, making his observations noteworthy. At least more noteworthy, than global statements of someone, who deals with cattle for most of his life.
Afterwards you suddenly stopped understanding plain English, but somewhy -- it was other people's fault. I would give you a benefit of a doubt, and not claim, that you just do not know what to say, and wiggle madly.
About Sturgeon's law not applying to movies, PLEASE!! Oh, please, benevolent shepherd, tell me that you are just pulling my leg! Otherwise I'll start suspecting that your art taste is... what it appears to be.
Ok so I got as far as the first line. It's not the words that you use, it's the use of those words. Meaning you have poor grammar, which I'm not gonna waste my time on.
Moderately lame excuse to quit accepted. Get back to sheep-herding, sweet prince!
I'm not quitting anything. I'll let you know when I'm done. At least you finally wrote 2 sentences that can be read without stumbling over your unsightly grammar. I applaud you for that. Try to keep it up plz.
It's been a while since I've met an anime hater(never?), but like all haters their anger is usually illogical and misdirected.
I can't find the remote
no more ranma plz
You don't know man, you don't live in South Wales!!! (T^T)

I have, in recent years, tried to define exactly what makes anime and manga more fascinating to me than western series, and the only real difference I find is the telling of the plot. The dramatic structure seems to be fundamentally different, yet influenced by western story-telling, thus creating a strange hybrid. This would imply that anime-phobics are actually allergic to two things: 1. Imaginative plot exposition and 2. Stereotypes.
Yes, there are a lot of stereotypes in anime. We all know it to be true.

that sucks. 90% is a lot. I wouldn't want to go outside if all I saw was ugly girls.
