Perhaps it's a little annoying. I don't mind it. Of course I'm a fan girl, but I'm not your typical crazy, "shove it down people's throats" fan.
All though, I do happen to have many things related to Gamzee Makara from Homestuck plastered everywhere at the moment... But I don't completely go ape shit like that. I just like him. It seems obsessive, but I assure you, it isn't.

Yes, you have become a fanboy, since SAO sucks, and you have just been blinded by the premise of it and boobs. It shouldn't have to defend it's self.
Fanboys and fangirls are both annoying. I don't think anyone will disagree with me.

Agreed, sir.

Fanboys ruin anime because the over hype things way to much. That's why you can watch and love cowboy beebop unless your a fanboy.
But only one thing can make fanboyism not matter its Nestalja.

I think it's kind of cute when people go crazy over something like a cartoon.

Assuming he means nostalgia....? if not then this is something I have not heard of either..

I love that the first post after someone talking about fanboy'ism is a hater talking down about an anime they just said they enjoyed... god bless the internet hahaha

I think being a fan boy/girl isn't automatically a bad thing I mean if your really into something and you can get together with those who similarly like it then you can have alot of fun bouncing idea's off each other. The negative however is that when someone attacks something they like feelings are quicker to be hurt and people lash out in defence of something they feel has merit/value/whatever you want to call it.

I think the community has a bit of a bad habit of not really speaking rationally about likes/dislikes there is alot more "its shit" comments then "I found I didn't like it because.." but maybe thats just me.

Take SAO for example I have seen alot more haters publicly bashing the show but I for one enjoyed it quite a bit to the point I am reading the LN that it came from ( something I do not often do ). Maybe its because I am a long time mmo gamer but I liked the take on it I wanted to see more of it and despite a bit of frustration of how abruptly they ended the SAO arc and the anime overall I would happily talk with anyone about all the great and not so great stuff in that show.

Fanboys are complete shit, no matter what the subject is. Mainly due to the fact that they are wrong most of the time.
They are extremely annoying and won't take any criticism to their glorious work of art.

With SAO its not nearly as good as the fanboys say it is, however it is not nearly as bad as the people who hate it say it is. SAO is just ok.

I'm a really big fan of One piece, however I in no way will ever claim that it has no flaws, i understand that it's not something thats for everyone, but if you try and say that its bad to my face, you better come up with Valid and reasonable points as to why.

to quote the Mighty Totalbiscuit " All fanboys must die"

This. I'd also like to add to make sure you keep an open mind to other anime as none has a set benchmark . Mangakas may target a set audience like Shounen or Shoujous that are typically audienced to 10-18 aged boys or girls. Take Full Moon wo Sagashite for example. It's target audience is mostly female, but I enjoyed it nonetheless because it was simply a good anime and the moral of the story, I feel, applies to everyone.

I am a fanboy of One Piece, I won't hide it. And yet I hate fanboys of other series like Dragon ball Z, for example.
When I think about it, I'm not being so much hypocrite as it sounds because at least I don't exaggerate when I talk about my favorite show. Nor I hide and deny its flaws. And those are the reasons fanboys of other shows piss me off.
For example, saying Goku can destroy a universe with one hand is so ridiculous I need get away from that thread and calm down. I love DBZ just as much as anyone else but come on!
I think there is nothing wrong with being a fanboy of any series at all as long as you don't god mode everyone and deny the show's weaknesses. You can love your favorite shows as much as you can!
