Topic. I've been studying the Japanese language intently recently and whenever someone asks why, and I point out because I wanna watch my Japanese shows in their natural languages I get shaking heads or really weird looks, sometimes told this is a really dumb reason and a waste of time. Is that true?
Never put your trust in anyone, you'll be let down each and every time.

if it motivates you well there's nothing wrong with that, learning another language is a great thing after all

the only people who'll say it's a waste of time are those too lazy to learn a second language themselves

I've been studying it so I can watch without subtitles and so I can play games that don't come out here. So, I don't see why it would be stupid.

Learning a second language is a good thing regardless of your motivation.

Even if you don't get proficient enough to watch anime without subtitles, having the ability to understand some basic language and read a bit of writing can go a long way.

It's always good to learn another language and regardless of your motivation it will come in handy someday. Even just a few basic phrases or broken JP will help if you plan to visit Japan.

You learn a language to understand things in that language. One of the most common reasons, historically, was to read something in another language so if anything it's -the- main reason people do it.
