I get what Timmyreaper is saying.

I'd seen these types of people just intended to watch "these" anime for the action.

They are not considering about the plot, culture, or even character developments (metaphorically).

I'm divided, on one hand I don't like elitism and on the other hand I can't truly consider them anime fans if they're not keeping up with it.

But I also don't think it's a big deal at all, so I don't mind calling them anime fans.

I think so far anime only has the (Dub vs Sub) divide.

Unlike the gamers who divide between, (hardcore vs casual or Console vs Computer or the worst divide, Girl Gamer)



the exception I make is for SAO fans

Fan sure thats fine but fanatic? I dont think so that title must be earned through intense anime watching on a whole diffrent lvl than the average viewer especially compared to someone whos only seen just naruto or dbz its not something you just say you are when you are at THAT lvl you dont need to say it you feel it and everyone around you can feel it and this aura can either inspire ppl or completely crush them but with enough skill you can control it and use it however you like. On a less crazy note yes they annoy me but i try not to hate them but try to show them that anime can be so much more then naruto and dbz.

I would agree with that part at least. Fanatic really is on a different level.

...I didn't read the rest so I don't know if I agree with it or not.

It doesn't bother me. You may be thinking too hard about it. It's like someone who only plays WOW can still be considered a gamer.

That's probably true, it's just that people around my age (16) are becoming overwhelming with all the Naruto crap they post. I just need to be more open minded, i guess.

The majority will drop off and for the rest their tastes will improve with time. It'll sort itself out.

nope, I don't judge people on their tastes. I like anime, that alone makes me weird amongst "normal" social groups, so I try not to pass that same form of judgement onto others who only watch the big titles like Naruto

naruto is best, only show worth watch.
