What is the most ridiculous anime-related questions you've been asked?

Recommended Posts

I recently watched a video (linked below) on some dumb anime questions that people have asked online. And it reminded me of a ridiculous question I've been asked before. 

I was talking to a classmate and told her that my friends and I were planning on watching anime tonight. To which she asked, "isn't anime cartoon porn?" 

Coincidentally, I never spoke to her again after that haha. So I'm curious to hear, what is the most ridiculous anime-related questions you've been asked?

I have approved your post for you. I did however have to remove the video as it contained inappropriate language.

As for the question at hand though I have seen many ridiculous anime questions over the years. Though the one that seemed to stick with me was. "can hardcore gamer be hard core anime fan" No joke this was literally asked at a convention I was at earlier this year.

>isnt anime hentai ?

me an intellectual: its not hentai, its good animation works, with good detail to plot, good characters, touching moments, gore stuff, its really hard to understand, "fixes glasses" and also, anime is makes you cry and have fun and get a new perspective that you dont get in movies and live actions and "yadda,yadda"

>then what's hentai

>"searches hentai and shows them"

>"oh, so anime is porn"

why even live /a/  /af/

No real questions, but we’ve got some other dumb things.

A personal favourite of ours is a guy who was looking for anime recommendations. We gave him something, can’t remember what exactly, may have been something like Rokka no Yuusha, but he came back about 30 seconds later saying that we obviously didn’t know what he was looking for. After questioning him for a bit, we found out that he had checked it’s MAL page, and he turned it down because it wasn’t tagged with the ‘swords’ genre.

We also had a guy once who refused to watch anything that wasn’t made in 2014.

As for misconceptions, there was a guy who thought that anime was a gardening show. He also pronounced it Ah-Nee-Mee.

Branching off of twig's second point, and partly the first, here's more or less what the guy wanted us to recommend to him:

"I want an anime from 2014 with a cool OP male MC, romance, harem, action, adventure, superpowers, swords, ecchi, and no cliffhanger."

We proceeded to poke fun at him until he left.

Oh needless to say I was laughing pretty hard on that one. Its funny what you can encounter in this life. Sometimes I really wonder. Though a question is a question technically. :(

That could not have been easy to suggest things for. Certainly would have taken some digging since 2014 wasn't even the best year for anime.

Isn’t anime for kids? I believe you can try to learn something in everything you do via school, work, anime etc... I also believe anime, tv shows or movies is a great way to escape from reality, used for guidance or personal growth. We spent “our” time in our on way 👍

I feel like I have been asked this one too, and I always have to come back with. Most of the time no it is not aimed at children rather 17+, and abovee is the target market for most anime series.

You don't watch anime. You're a girl!

 

My thoughts in response: I'm a lady and nobody tells a lady what she can do. 🤨

 

My usual reply: Well, bless your heart!

The only question I ever was asked about anime was when I was watching some action anime, forgot which one it was, and my mother came in, watched a bit and then asked: "why can all these people jump so high?"

Not the getting hit by a punch that breaks stone, falling from the sky and crushing the ground instead of dying or the hillariously flapping titties with the size of basket balls- no; it was the jumping that was the odd thing.
