hi this forum is a lot more anime than you may remember. prepare yourself.

​Oh dear...

I've actually started watching One Piece (Dear god it's the greatest show ever why did no one tell me?) but I'm still in this weird gray area of both loving and hating weabs and the "anime culture" in general. At least as far as it goes here in america.

​Get to watch One Punch Man.

Not much has changed except I've finally and officially trademarked the letters K O and G and you owe me ten cents every time you use one of them.

I'll let your OP slide since you're "new" but for the rest of this thread I'm gonna need to collect a sum of $10.40 (or equivalent value in Steam inventory items) by the first of November or I will be forced to consult my legal team.

I can and will repossess $10 worth of your house if necessary. Usually it's just one brick or something but rest assured, I will make sure I take the most structurally important brick.

This is your first and final notice.

​It's perfectly okay to like anime and hate the "culture" because there's some toxic shit in there.

"Incest and pedophilia are awesome gimme some more of that in anime pls"

 

But yeah One Piece is great. Moby is right and you should watch one Punch Man.

It's also perfectly ok to like anime and hate the culture because your average anime fan is a braindead fucking idiot with no concept of quality. It also makes for good posting content, I stroke my dick to my own superior tastes all of the time man, try it.

Hey, how're you doing. Welcome back.

Hi. I've been here long enough to see you sometimes, but haven't done much with you. You probably don't know me very well. In that case:

ATTEND THE TALE OF MERSOPOLIS - A THESPIAN WHO GOT HIS FIRST KISS - I HAVE A LIFE AND IT'S GOING WELL - THOUGH OTHER THAN THAT THERE'S NOT MUCH TO TELL - HIS LIFE MAY BE QUITE FAR FROM BLISS - YES, MERSOPOLIS - THE ALMOST ORD'NARY ACTOR

Its not for those reasons though can't say I'm a fan of that spectrum of the culture. As you know I was raised as a convention baby and I have attended a handful of anime cons. 

 

On one hand there are some really terrible trends in that community and I find some of its "culture" infuriating and on the other hand I see weabs as the last bastion of true nerds and have an incredible amount of respect for them. 

 

Every con I overhear the same infuriating thing. 

 

"I'm such a NERD, I like Star Wars"

"I'm such a NERD, I like video games"

"I'm such a NERD, I like doctor who!"

 

HELL NO! You are not!

im almost 30 years old now. I remember what that word actually meant before the media spun it to sell our culture to a bigger audience. Those people aren't getting made fun of for their fandoms. They aren't getting prank calls to their house at 3 am. The media isn't saying their hobbies are those of serial killers, devil worshippers, and the mentally ill. They're not being socially ostracized and trying to find a little slice of acceptance in a subculture surrounding little known fandoms. 

 

Yesterday's nerd is today's weab, neckbeard, shirt lord and whatever new slur is in fashion so everyone can kiss their own ass for being so accepting of "nerds" while still having someone on the bottom rung of society to shit on. 

 

Im sure in a few years anime culture will get its mass media watering down but until then I have both a ton of respect and hatred for it. /rant

Ok that's great and all, but every minute you spent writing that was a minute you could've spent watching One Punch Man.

I skimmed a few chapters of the manga and while it seems decent I'll wait until there's an english dub. I hate having to read subtitles.

 

DAE TBBT = Nerd blackface???? ;_;

​Thats a good way of putting it. It's really starting to ruin the convention scene. Hell just take a look at what happened to the san diego comic con. 8 years ago everything was fine and then Disney bought out marvel, moms and tweens flooded in to meet twilight the vampire, and the media took over. Now it's nothing but a $3000 trip you take to watch fucking commercials a week before everyone else sees them.

Even Dragoncon is starting to see this happen and it is a completely fan run convention. Thursdays and Fridays are still almost as good as they always were but the second that fucking parade hits the streets of atlanta saturday morning every asshole touristy daywalker and their snot nosed kids flood the convention floors and make the convention so much worse. Even the parade itself is no longer a bunch of nerds showing off their cosplay. This year leading the parade was god damn medieval times and a slew of other bullshit goosestepping commercials.

"Nerds" are now weirdly a minority in their own communities but any time anyone tries to speak up about it someone always pulls out the "Oh, you're just mad because of those so called fake geek girls you think are just wearing skimpy outfits for attention!" which is an entirely different (but also valid) argument.

​TBH being a "nerd" is nothing to be proud of. It's basically synonymous with being a social outcast.

It's a good thing that people don't need to be afraid to say "I like this" for fear of being mocked mercilessly.

If you need to deal with the influx of new people shitting up the place...so be it. It just means your favorite thing is now doing well financially.
