It depends on what they mean. I can understand them liking Naruto or Bleach and calling themselves an anime fan if they watch all the episodes and are generally new to anime. I was like that once. But if someone says they are a fan and they never watch an anime consecutively, or never actually look into other anime shows, then there's a bit of an exaggeration if they label themselves "anime fan".

The whole conversation just reminds me of cosplay to be honest, and what defines a true cosplayer. Some people think you have to make everything yourself to call yourself a true cosplayer, some people think you have to think outside of the box for who you cosplay, and others think it's acceptable to throw on a store-bought Naruto outfit or wear some sort of costume that shows a lot of skin when they're clearly fat/obese, despite how skinny the actual character they're cosplaying might be.

I think in the end, it's how much of a shit you give or don't give that defines your views.

Why get annoyed at someone else?

It's not like you did anything wrong.

They aren't even insulting you. Unless you're saying you take that personally.

But then.. heck, that's a shitload of things to be unhappy about, isn't it?

What's wrong with only liking just a few series? Because of this kind of snooty crap I never talk to anybody about anime. I'm picky. Just because I don't watch every single thing that's out doesn't make you a "better" fan than me.

Well DBZ and Naruto ARE Anime, and if they really like it than aren't they fans of it?
Just saying. (⊙ω⊙)/


They are anime fans.....

I am surprised that it would actually matter.

I can understand if they ramble on constantly about their favorite series, that it would become annoying . . . but you don't need to watch DBZ or Naruto or Bleach or anything else popular to become annoying..... In fact I have found some truly annoying things are said by people that watch shows that I would call, "good" or even "great."

But you also have to realize that people are going to act like kids now and then....

Don't act like things that other people do don't bother you sometimes

People who watch only one or two anime series aren't anime fans. Plain and simple. If they've only seen Naruto or DBZ then they are Naruto/DBZ fans. Not anime in general fans. If you doubt this I suggest you take a look at any English dictionary .

Liking an anime falls within the definition of anime fan, otherwise it's just some arbitrary number of animes and really what's the point. It really is a case of getting bogged down in semantics.

I do tend to get annoyed when this occurs. I can understand what Princeblaster is saying. But saying you are an anime fanatic and only watch one, is like someone saying they love Heavy Metal and they only listen to one band. You can't really love what you don't truly know. They can say what they like, but it just seems like a blatantly ignorant thing to do.


This is my exact opinion in a nutshell. The comparison to music is spot on as well. I know so many younger girls who go on about how they're so brutal and love heavy music, yet in the end it turns out all they listen to is SWS and they rave 24/7 about their love for Kellin, and you kind of just sit back and go "huh, right".

Meh if they want to call themselves an anime fan that's cool, makes no difference to me. But I wouldn't personally consider them one. Just like if people say they like horror games but have only played slender *shrugs*
