Does watching anime automatically make me a loser?

I'm a freshman in high school, I play sports, get good grades, I have a girlfriend and I'm decently athletic, yet people still say I'm a loser for watching anime. It's just every once and a while, but sometimes people catch me watching it and say I'm a loser. Why is this?

No way! I love anime and that doesn't make me a loser. It shouldn't make you a loser either and a lot of people like anime.

When I was in middle school i was literally the outcast of outcasts and I watched a ton of anime. In Highschool I was one the most popular guys there and I watched a ton of anime, played Pokemon, Yugioh, Magic the gathering. 10 years later, I'm married, have a house and kid and all that highschool popularity amounted to nothing. Btw, still watch a ton of anime. Just do you and forget about everyone else. They aren't going to be there years down the road when it matters most anyway. Only your friends and true friends won't care if you watch anime.

Depends on what you watch.

People tend to mock, insult or disrespect other people who like what they don't like. Truth is that their opinion doesn't matter. Don't dislike something because others do, it will only show that you're a sheep who follows other people around and when one's decisions are made, you approve of it. Don't be like that.

I watch Anime specifically ones like Bleach and One Punch Man and I get called similar names as you are called but I don't care what they think, you shouldn't either.

Because most people who watch it are losers, lame, cringe worthy, and doesn't have a life. I'm not saying all are like that, but that's what people see, only the bad side. They don't look at normal people like you. No offense to otakus, but we have to face the truth. I've been there. But why care? Play it cool and they won't mind.

If it makes you happy inside,then do it

Don't worry about what others will say because you never know,maybe it is a defense mechanism for them and they secretly watch it as well ;)

No. What will however automatically make you a loser is listening to people who spew such nonsense.

No it doesn't. I don't like the word loser. Calling someone a loser implies there's something wrong with their lifestyle, which is simply not true. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes, interests and hobbies. You liking something they don't doesn't make you a loser at all, and vice versa. It's a pointless word.

I think anime is looked down upon just because at a glance it seems odd and isn't well understood in mainstream western culture. When you think about it, people calling you loser because of anime is just silly and they have no basis for it, most probably don't know a thing about anime. So just ignore it I'd say, you do your thing and let them do theirs! =]

No. It does not.

Pretty much. Caring what other people think makes you an even bigger loser.

Tina 01/03/2018.

These things do not determine you don’t let other people who are LOSERS themselves tell you that you can’t do what you like! If like anime watch them and don’t care about others

Anime is fantastic art. I was around when Ranma 1/2 was first being disseminated into the culture here in the US in the early mid 1990's. It was awesome to see bootleg copies at a friend's place.

Saturn 01/05/2018.

It’s because typically anime is corny and has some bizzare storylines and stereotypically the people associated with it are normally nerdy. In reality, doesn’t matter. If it bothers you so much, I’d switch to watching shows like Dragonball Z or Naruto which even “cool” people tend to show interest in. But honestly, no big deal what others say, just enjoy it.
