Odd. Every time I tell fellow gamers I watch anime I'm met with a flood of "me too".
This does sometimes lead to good-natured fights between fandoms but it's what you'd expect. Much like Trek vs Wars generally is a thing among gamers.


It mostly happened in World of Warships were they introduced Arpeggio of Blue Steel and Highschool fleet ships to the game and the cries of "Dear god what have you done bringing this weeb stuff into our game" the attacking anyone who says they like anime


That's where your problem is. Crossing genres.. Historical geeks hate anything fantastical. It's like trying to mix high magic into Star Trek (star wars is probably more accepting since they're not hard scifi)

I got into anime because of my time on a gaming forum, so this is far from a universal truth...

Oof, okay yes I can definitely see that. In fact I am actively questioning why the developers would even consider such a thing as that seems like just asking for trouble. Apreggio especially the ships would stick out like a sore thumb if the rest of the game is based on historical ships. Taking a game that seems geared towards wargamer types and inexplicably introducing high school waifu is mixing oil and water.

I learned a harsh lesson today
Never ever say you like anime on a gaming forum
There seems to be a nerd hierarchy and it seems anime nerds being pretty new seem close to the bottom just above Game of thorn nerds


Nope. Say you're a furry.
