"Love-hate" does not quite properly explain the Doc's relationship with Japanese entertainment and culture. It was more like... "love-'strange twisted and slightly disturbing love'". Like, he loved pretty much every anime, but seemed to really, really like the ones where horrible things happened to the characters. Death, dismemberment, total party kills, he'd list them off the way most people would list interesting characters, neat story, and big bouncy tits as positives for an anime.
It's not that I think he was a guro fan or anything like that. He didn't seem to be turned on or morbidly fascinated by these things. He was just cheerful and happy, and seeing anime characters he loved dying horribly also made him cheerful and happy. Sort of the same way that if someone greeted him with "Konnichiwa!", he'd respond with just as cheerful a "Konnichiwa!", hold a conversation with them in their broken fan-Japanese, and end the conversation with a happily-said word that was, I think, the Korean equivalent of "cocksucker".
