Just wondering why do anime characters or somebody famous have anti fans?
Is there anything about them that make people hate them so much?
Or is it because they go against the one they like?
Just wondering...
Hope no one get offended...-_- *praying hard*

Because the fans get too annoying. If a popular character didn't have annoying fans, they wouldn't have anti-fans. Sure people still dislike that particular character, but when lots of fans goes all "NarUto is the bestest character in da world!", it makes things escalate and then someone gets too fed up with it and becomes an anti-fan.


In shorter words:

Hysterical fans creates anti-fans.

It's because some people just deserve to be hated.

So do you think some mangaka create a character just to be hated by people?

The things antifans hate very rarely deserve to be hated. Certain people just like to be mean and hate on others, and something people are fans of like anime is just an excuse for them to be hurtful. They themselves probably don't hate anime. They just use that as a reason to justify their online bullying.

A little from column A and a little from column B.

Seriously though, some people are anti-fans because it's an excuse to be a dick. However, in order for this to work there either has to be bandwagon of anti-fans in existence to join or they must correctly divine that a particular fandom will be considered 'out there' or annoying enough to generate one.

Personally, I find I engage in anti-fan behaviour usually if and only if, I've had it up to here with a particular type of fan hype. Even then I distinguish between my antipathy for the fans and my feelings positive or negative for the focus of their fannish glee. For example, while I generally view crowds of tween girls having screaming meltdowns over a singer with contempt. I honestly, have no particular grievance against Justin Beiber.


Usually what get's my goat, is fan hyperbole that portrays an artistic or entertainment product that is mediocre at best as 'the greatest thing ever'. Sometimes specific fan events/behaviours just seem to invite social commentary. Ie "Twilight Moms" provoke an urge to comment on double standards becuase if a swarm of 40 plus men were drooling over a high school age girl, someone would probably get arrested.

I'm naturally contrary though. I find whenever I see or hear someone making what I consider extreme assertions positive or negative, my natural instinct is go 'Hey Whoa.. there's another point of view here." some may view that as being an anti-fan as well.

If everyone had the same opinion it wouldn't be well...life I don't mind a healthy debate but antifans who go at you generally to piss you off get on my tits -__-

I seriously don't see what the problem is with people being huge fans of things they like. And in my personal experience, I've seen people tend tp be antifans simply so they can troll and be a pain to society.

Like I said, I'm sure that's the case some of the time. but if you've never been annoyed, amused, disturbed by someone who takes their fannish delight in something to extreme levels. Then you must have lived a sheltered life.

I've seen many people take their fandoms to the extreme. But as long as they don't demand me to join in, I don't care. Why would it bother me? It's their life. I don't see how it would affect me or how I or anyone else have any right to be annoyed by it. unless of course they are fans of something really creepy and wrong like porn.
Even if people try and back up their hatred with the excuse that the fans are too much, it is still just an excuse at the end of the day. You can't justify hating someone because of their interests just because they have a really strong interest in it.

Idk..When I was younger I used to hate anything that became popular...like Facebook, etc. I hated it because I wanted to be different and not like what everyone else like...

...but then I stopped caring about what other people did or didn't like. Sure some fans can be annoying (Naruto) but it shouldn't make you hate something or someone. You should just get annoyed with some of the fans! Because technically now that I think about it, I am apart of the Naruto fanbase because I write fan-fiction, but some of my fellow fanbase members are so incredibly irritating, they make me want to shoot them.

Back on point: I stopped because it shows a weakness in your own character by being influenced. So even when something is more popular than it should be (opinion) I will not let other's reactions change my view point...

For example I love Naruto manga, which a lot of people think is annoying, and have annoying followers. Its not going to stop me.

Bleach, has annoying followers and fanbase at times...I just don't like it.

Maybe its a little conceit on my end, but at least I've been able to enjoy stuff that's to my taste.
