Anime does not mean close mind by kat-reverie Anime does not mean close mind by kat-reverie
I was having a talk with someone on another one of my stamps, and she pointed out in a way that people automatically think all anime fans (especially those of us that draw in an anime/manga style) do is watch anime, listen to japanese music and cosplay.
I personally don't watch much anime. I am currently keeping up with, what, two? and I have only a small ammount of J-music on my computer, especially in comparison to rock and big band ( and classical and... well, I have a lot of music XD ) I also watch cartoons, and network tv. I practically ABUSE the history channel and history international. And as for cosplay, I think it'd be a fun thing, but really it's no different than dressing up as a witch for halloween.

So yeah, as usual, a stamp so I don't feel the need to bitch moan and groan in my journal XD

C+C wanted, as not only are my emote skills bad, my frame speed skills are lacking too XD

EDIT: (12/20/08) Thank you all for all the comments and even the faves ( XP ). I'm having a hard time reply to all of them, so I'd like you all to know ahead of time that I REALLY appriciate the time you guys take to write comments. Even if I don't reply I assure you I read every one of them.

Edit: 3/23/2012 - For those asking, you're welcome to use this or any other stamp I've made. I don't mind at all.

we have to admit that there are people who their entire life is japan/anime/manga/cosplay DX i know one, she cosplayed ariel on our national day! thats just sad ;-; i watch a lot of anime, draw manga style and read manga, i have some paperback manga, art books and a couple of cosplays, but as you say; thats not ALL i do, i watch animal planet, science id, travel channel, game of thrones, pretty little laiers, once upon a time and follow many `real life`series on tv :) ( not to mention i have a social life XD ) its too bad there are those people who think that if you like anime/manga then you are not interested in anything else D: one of my favourite singers are Till Lindeman, and he is as german as can be XD ( do NOT search for his songs if you are easily offended, they are a bit creepy ^^; i have warned you XD ) love the stamp :)

This happens to me when I try to talk to someone... Normal conversation with me:
You:"Hi, what's your favorite song?" 
Me:" Hontou no Piece of love"
You:"Okay, Favorite singer?"
Me:"Ayumi Hamasaki"
You:*Thinking "Wow, what the heck is she saying?" 
       *Talking "Favorite Show?"
Me: "Shugo Chara"
You:" *Explodes What the... What did japan move into your head!!!! Why would you think like that, it's abnormal!!! And why do you wear lollipops in your hair!!!!"
Me:" Lollipops are american..."
Okay that is a conversation with me(And I really do where lollipops in my hair sometimes)
AngelofIndividuality Featured By Owner Edited Jul 31, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Your favorite show is Shugo Chara? NICE! I think it's cool that you wear lollipops in your hair! :3
AnimeCuteCake Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2014  Student General Artist
I know right? Lollipops are awesome and so is shugo chara I watched it 3 times
AngelofIndividuality Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Go shugo chara! Who's your favorite character and chara? the chara doesn't have to be your favorite character's.
AnimeCuteCake Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2014  Student General Artist
My favorite person is Utau! :D But my favorite chara is Yoru! He's hilarious! 
AngelofIndividuality Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Yoru is hilarious! XD 
Sapphirefoxette Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah I like anime and cartoons, I'm in non-anime fandoms, plus I like more music than Jpop/anime. Plus you'll even see at conventions that cosplay is not limited to anime, and people there sell more than anime stuff
Oh my god... That actually happens to me several times at school... TTT___TTT

I Agree with this stamp, but i still love anime most of all. To me anime is EPIC, but that doesn't mean that's all i like. Total agreement with you here.

jerrica21 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012  Student Digital Artist
This is so true so many people just assume everyone who draws anime only watches anime only listens to Japanese bands and that we all do cosplay I hate it when people do that I'm so glad you made this video!
Devicre Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
This is too true for word.

Love this!!! this is like Epic! Nice job!
chibeteadrinker Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I watch anime. I listen to some good J-rock bands. I listen to Vocaloid. I like good cosplays.
But that is not my entire life. Documenterys are my obsession, as well as writing and read fantasy.
For me, anime is entertainment, not a lifestyle.

Jesserfly Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
LOl this is so true. IF you like Anime, you are NOT close minded >:I I hate when people talk about how closed minded anime fans are... >3>
Masa-Chan5320 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is so true! I love anime, but I don't consider myself an otaku, I don't collect stuff, my room's like the plainest room you could find in the world; I love J-pop and Vocaloid but I also love musicals, country music and classical music; and I HATE cosplaying (no offence guys^^;)
Jaya-sama Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012
I love this stamp... because I've been told the worst In my opinion. Someone actually said that I was an immature girl for watching anime, drawing manga and loving cosplay photography and that I wouldn't take care of my child the right way. I was literally told I was too immature to take care of a child simply because I was into anime... something I haven't watched in months.

it warms my heart to know I'm not the only one who thinks like you do
Vokaloid101 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
Wow that's harsh. I would have punched that kid in the face. Hard
Juicy-Peach Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012
I watch Anime and draw a little too (Badly though) and every one thinks that if you like anime than means that your OBSESSED with cosplay and Japanese music and like to sing anime songs and a lot of stuff you said. Were I live your considered a low life and a retard if you just mention the word 'anime'. To be honest when i see girls do that stuff i feel dirty inside and a freak show because girls that your describing make all of us look that way, I like the actual culture of Japan and the anime's by Hayao Miazaki (I hope i spelled that right). It's just nice to know there people like me out there :')

I showed this to my friend (he'd be the blue guy here) and his opinion still hasn't changed
