The Anime Community
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Anime is hand-drawn and computer animation originating from or associated with Japan. Over the years it has attained a very toxic following.
なぜ有毒なのか (Translation: Why It's Toxic)
- Let's get straight to the point. Weeaboos.
- This community is incredibly petty and insensitive. If you so much as mispronounce any Japanese word by even one syllable, refer to an anime as a cartoon, or criticize/like their favorite/hated anime in the slightest form, they will harass you.
- They cause flame wars everywhere, from the smallest of things in their beloved anime, from characters, to animation, to huge issues like their abilities, and rivalries. The most notorious being Goku and Vegeta, as well as Naruto and Sasuke. They cause petty rivalries which each other too.
- They are known to be rude and immature, placing hate comments against anything they dislike just to ruin the mood.
- Whenever somebody uses the international title of an anime, at least one person will "correct" you and insist that you use the Japanese title instead, ignoring the fact that it's only their personal preference, and anybody can have the right to use the international title whenever they want to.
- They're so easily offended that it's pathetic. They fail to realize that acting like this will cause people to bully them even more, which will consequently make anime fans even more sensitive and it creates an endless cycle of ignorance and rude behavior.
- The elitists. They think they're above all other members because they watch better anime or they watch it in Japanese instead of foreign-language dubs. They even insist that their opinions are facts, such as the quality of an anime.
- Most members are hipsters who think they're special because they don't watch mainstream anime and only watch obscure titles. Contrary to their belief, they aren't.
- Some members in this community are SJWs.
- The dub vs. sub debate.
- They give anime a really bad reputation that it does not deserve. Because of this anime has the same reputation as the Sonic series.
- They don't keep their embarrassing personal stuff to themselves and spread it in public, such as having dakimakura (anime body pillows) and try doing sexual stuff with it for everyone to see. To make this situation worse is that most of the characters are underage, thus making them borderline pedophiles.
- They caused the haters to grow large and now too much of the irrational anime haters are trying to ban anime.
- Most of the elitists who watch anime with little to no fanservice attack people who watch fanservice anime (it's okay to like them as long if you're not doing anything bad).
- The anime community on twitter.
- Of course, like many communities, it is common to see the "Best Girl" and "Best Boy" debates when it comes to showing favoritism towards their favorite anime characters.
- They'll say you have a poor taste if you watch some anime that they don't like.
- Most of the Ecchi haters think that only perverts and pedophiles watch Ecchi anime which is not true.
- A lot of anime fans are extremely disrespectful to anyone who might like not anime for a specified reason, and usually, they'll attack the person just for not liking anime.
- The classic anime elitists: They constitute the worst of nostalgia's on the internet, throwing hissy fits and obnoxious comments against modern versions of anime they love, and attacking people who praise them in the slightest.
- This community, both classic and modern elitists, want any anime to be in their own image and will reject anything that doesn't go their way. Selfish much?
- Their actions are causing the anime industry itself and reputation to fall apart.
- They are the biggest reason why MyAnimeList's scoring system is flawed.
- They also tend to put words like "trash" and "garbage" too much in the comments if something related in the community doesn't fit their taste.
- They can get extremely childish. This user is an example.
- Crossover anime video games like Jump Force easily exposes this community's behavior, as flame wars are rampant among character fans (e.g. Goku, Jotaro, Dio, Naruto, Kenshiro).
- They'll complain about stuff like cliches and tropes in anime repeating which is hypocritical since this community keeps repeating many things such as their flaws (referring to the community).
- The biggest hypocrisy is when they complain about immature anime or immature things in that anime yet they act even much more immature than the anime and the things in it.
- They love using Stereotyping especially the elitists.
- The character hatedoms in this community can get way too irrational on the character they hate.
- They over-obsess their hate on the weak naive male protagonist trope in anime (as well as LNs,manga and video games) too much yet they're fine when American and non Japanese stuff like Futurama doing it.
品質の引き換え (Translation: Redeeming Qualities)
- Not all members of the anime community are toxic. In fact, some of them are in good shape.

- Some members of the community do agree to the casual themed animes especially the genre is School, Moe, Ecchi-Harem, Isekai, Gijinka, and Fanservice.
- Some Anime fans or Otakus make cosplays of their favorite Anime characters.
- Others do Nightcore remixes of non-Anime songs mostly Pop genre as well as putting their favorite characters on the remixes.
- Meanwhile on Pixiv, DeviantArt, Zerochan and sometimes in Danbooru (or Safebooru), you can find a lot of great Anime illustrations featured there.
- Speaking of Anime fan-arts, some members of the Anime community make artworks of their favorite video game, cartoon and live-action characters in Anime-art style.
- Examples include: Parororo, Kenron Toqueen, Alpaca Carlesi, Kureha Shido, Par0llel, Kazenokaze, 1o8k, Slugbox (18+ only), JinuSenpai (also 18+), and many more!
- A lot of fans make good reviews on every Anime series they loved.
- Some of the Anime community paid respects to the people who died in the arson of Kyoto Animation studios. And a lot of them made a tribute for the animes that they've been made.
