Why is anime so misunderstood?

Often, I've heard someone say that anime is just for the kids. Basically, the cartoons of this generation. Have any of these people realized that with the amount of cursing and blood in 'Hellsing' it is not made for kids? Apparently, not in my public library. 'Yami no Matsuei' (aka Descendents of Darkness) was placed in the kids section. I almost died from laughter. Anybody else notice this?

The anime wave hasn't reached too many places yet, and people are influenced not to watch by others who don't like it.But when they will first watch it, they will fall in love with them, that i guarantee. For example here, in Roamania, anime is still considered tabuu. For some time now, I believe it's about 2 years, there has been a new Tv channel named A+ (which stands for Anime +). At first, people wouldn't watch it, but know it's very popular and has a huge viewer rating, even has a forum which has a lot of users. There, you can find an interesting poll wich asks of the age of the users. You will be surprised if I told you that the most popular age category si 17-30 years old, and believe me, it's true. Anime has no age preference because there is always something suitable for everyone to see in it. :)

Because of the people who like anime. You can't tell me this isn't true - you know the otaku type, and you know how they usually are. People see this and think "childish". If the weeaboo stereotype wasn't there, anime wouldn't have the rap that it does.
