I love and respect this fellow from my childhood (preschool times) and I don't see it meaning anything as he's no longer with us but after watching this, hearing him detest "all the violence" on TV...and I'm watching Hunter x Hunter or remember all those Pokemon/Digimon/Yugioh/Rurouni Kenshin/YYH/Naruto/DBZ/One Piece/Bleach/eventually stuff like Death Note all that 4th grade stuff (except PKMN thats like 2nd grade) I grew up with and reminisce upon fondly...and then I think "What would Mr. Rogers do?"

Some of that stuff is only "4th grade stuff" because it was bowdlerized for US broadcast (Dragonball comes to mind).

Other things, like Death Note, isn't for kids and never has been.

"Anime" be just cartoons made in Japan.

Meaning, some are good and some are bad.

Why would you be ashamed of that? Anime is great. I am 26 and I enjoy Anime a lot. Besides that, it is TRUE not all anime is for kids. Elfen Lied or Death Note are just two examples. Right now I am watching Monster, an anime about a surgeon that is chasing a serial killer, not exactly kid's material. If somebody makes you feel bad about it, just tell them to go eff themselves, because there's nothing wrong in liking anime.

[edit]

And about the violence in anime... violence in media is widrespread and generally only videogames and anime are attacked for it. (With the occasional tabloid and/or movie) Blaming media violence for real violence is just a way to put the blame on something rather that seeing what caused the real trouble.

At least, with a lot of the things you listed, the characters are out in search of a better world. Violence isn't their end goal, they want peace.
Rurouni Kenshin is about a samurai who doesn't want to hurt even his enemies. In Naruto, the ninja villages learn to work together instead of fight each other.
