I love the argument against anime about it being "all that weird big eyed characters that all have super powers"
Most western cartoon characters have oversized eyes. Also, I'd consider the ability to pull random objects from behind your back ala loony toons to be a ridiculous "super power" of sorts.
inb4 flamewar of east vs west. I'm just saying that the argument is contrived and takes the place of the actual reason: "I don't get it."
