Misunderstood animation

Lately it seems as if either I've overheard bits of conversations or been in ones with people who don't really appear to understand anime. True I don't claim to be an expert but at least I try to keep an open mind when watching anime. Whenever I meet someone who doesn't understand anime and is still critisizing it anyway, I just have to shake my head and mentally laugh. Not at them exactly but just at their inability to understand. True, I use to be exactly the same way a few years ago until I actually started watching anime. Whenever asked why I watch anime I do my best to expalian. I also at least attempt to explain the diffence between anime and cartoons here in the US. Am I always succesful in getting the people who ask to understand? No, but at least I did my best to explain.
