what's the big deal about stuff being "over-hyped" or someone being a fanboy/fangirl? just let them enjoy what they enjoy and you enjoy what you enjoy.

Totally agree. Always reminds me of this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt (and others):

"Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people."

I think overhypers are worse.I would much rather hear a person talk about Naruto,Bleach,and/or One Piece,rather than hear a person give an anime way too much credit,and when you point out a flaw they flip shit.

Which one is worse?

So the two of them are similar in a way. They will refuse to watch anything that is not mainstream. (And it's not my assumption. I recommended some really good stuff to some of them and they never watched them.)

The overhypers are worse in my opinion.
They overrate whatever they watch, without comparing it to other shows. Big 3 fanboys are the same, but here's the difference. When people ask for anime recommendation, of course the overhypers are the first ones there. And when I comment and recommend other stuff, they will start dissing the anime I recommended, which they haven't even seen. They will be like "No. Dude, watch Attack on Titan. It's way better than the other ones." And if I say something to that, they will use popularity to try to prove that AoT is so much damn better than all the other stuff.

They will call themselves huge anime fans and then a lot of them will not spend a penny on it. Probably go on some pirate site to watch it over and over until another mainstream show appears. How would I know? Look at the sales.
Attack on Titan sold 37K copies in first week. The Monogatari series sells 30K's. And way more people watched AoT than the Monogatari series. (Love Live has the craziest fans. hands down.)

At least a lot of the big 3 fanboys buy the manga. It takes more than just watching it to be considered a fanboy.


The Big 3.

I assume we are talking Record of Lodoss War, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and Maison Ikkoku right?

Also I fail to see how the Japanese sales numbers verify anything other than in Japan most people who watch AoT probably also liked Monogatari.

To paraphrase, They are them, I am me. I could care less about Otaku, fanboys, overhypers, underhypers, hyperspace, wormhole junctions. I have my opinions, others have theirs. That is how the world works and I am glad people can disagree with me. Or life would be pretty boring when I get together with friends.

And it is oddly comforting to know that the roughly $45,000 I have spent on R1 Anime DVD's over the years and the roughly $0 I have spent on Manga does not qualify me as a fanboy.

No, really, that is comforting. I will sleep better tonight knowing that.

One Piece is the b3st anim3 in history xD, Filleruto, Shitty Bleach, Ecci Tail, Toricum and Dragon Ball Shit are shit and copy god One Piece xD, Luffy is stronger than Goku, anime couldn't exist without One Piece xDDD, no, i dont read the manga but i know by a fact that the one piece anime is better than the rest of the shitty anime XDD

vs

SAO is the best thing that ever happened to anime, SAO is a masterpiece, Alheim Online and Excaliber are not shit, they are just a build up for Alicization, that arc is going to be the best in anime history

Man, everywhere I turn lately on this forum people are whining about overhyped anime.

I vote that the people who spend time complaining about Big 3 fanboys and "Overyhypers" are the worst.

And you care what other people think or say because? I like mainstream anime and theres probably a reason why it's mainstream but I don't care what people think about me when I say this. So why should you care when people over hype or fanboy, just let them be.

Mainstream-only viewers and Mainstream-haters are the most pathetic for me. Just enjoy things for yourself, why must you give a damn about what's popular or not? Sure it is pretty frustrating when there's not enough fan-works of your favorite thing than another, but that's about the biggest problem there is.

Haven't heard of Lodoss.
Also, I have to say I do respect you for having spent so much throughout the years, since I have no money to spend on anime things (obviously because I refuse to work, so can't complain much).

*ponders*

Gintama receives plenty of hype from its fans.

So ... I started watching it.

And I am now a believer.

Maybe it only qualifies as overhype if it fails to convert you?

Agreed, I don't get to post here very often any more but it seems like whenever I do I always encounter an argument about stupid shit of some kind.
