Huh. I'm either aggressive because I like the Naruto series, because I like Bleach, and/or because I enjoy the Shounen genre? How lovely. (sarcasm)

Assholes will be assholes, regardless of their tastes. Targeting fanbases on the premise that the individuals that constitute them "must all be the same" isn't pleasant, either.

I didn't call you out individually, see how aggressively you took it? lol
I didn't have to say most or some fans, i was speaking in general, you know.


Even you as a Naruto fan know that most of the Fanbase is like the guy that i quoted in my OP.

I'm a One Piece fan and even i admit we got pople like this, but not the extent that i've seen Naruto Fans.

and many others would agree.

I feel so embarrassed sometimes to be a fan of Naruto because of this crappy fanbase. When I see a Naruto hate comments on the internet, I don't go out of my way to argue against them, because I know its just their opinion and no matter what they say, its not going to stop me from watching it. And then I see people going out of their way to defend it and I just say "Please stop.... you're making the fanbase look bad" and they'll just have a comeback like "WELL YOU'RE NOT A TRUE NARUTO FAN THEN ARE YOU!!!". I'm pretty tired of it to be honest. When people ask me "Hey Emily, whats your favorite anime?" I almost never mention Naruto even though it is one of my favorites. I wish I could be a proud fan, but I just can't be bothered

So I just like to say, not all of us are bad.

Also, no, I don't know that "most are like that." I don't go around and interview people, and I'm no mind-reader. I won't pretend otherwise.

The issue is you took issue with someone on YouTube. That site's comments section is among the most toxic on the internet. It is an outlet for angry or ignorant fools to insult everyone and everything they possibly can.

I've encountered more personable people during accidental trips to the land of /b/ *shudders*

I don't think you should ever feel ashamed to be a fan, like I am a fan of Christopher Nolan's movies, But I also am aware of how notorious his fanbase is.

At least you are aware of your fanbase. but you shouldn't have to feel embarrassed because of others actions when I say Naruto fans" i'm not saying all im speaking in general. and in general most act like that. My point was I've really only encountered it as frequently in the Naruto Fanbase.

Well... It gets old when people hate on something you enjoy for the sake of hating.

That being said, you can't really put all Naruto fans in a box like that it's not really fair.
I consider myself a fan of Naruto and I am perfectly aware of the decline in quality of the show, you may even remember my post on that one thread you made.

It's the internet man... People are angry.

OMG lol

And here I thought I was safe on CR. I guess not.

My point is further and further proven.

Look let's just end this right here, 've had enough of guys like you today. and were both just going to end up banned form CR if we continue further.
So Im going to be the mature one here and just give up, you win. let's move on lol

The problem with all fanbases is that the aggressive, condescending, ignorant "fans" are the only ones who are vocal. It isn't that the majority of the fans of Naruto act like this, it is just that those are the only ones that ever stand out.

Don't be an ass. Just because I admit to enjoying a few series, that doesn't mean my seeming behavior is caused by it. It'd be like appropriating your tastes (whatever they are) to the sense of mean-spiritedness that I feel from your words. Both would be incorrect.

My writing style just happens to be blunt, somewhat cold, and "flowery." Hopefully, you'll soon understand that you jumped to conclusions, since I'm a regular here in the forums.

Now, if your issue is that I'm a "rabid fan" for disagreeing with you, "daring" to question you, and my broad taste in anime/manga, which happens to also include Bleach and Naruto, then we are certainly done here.

I'm a Naruto fan, but I agree that it has gone down hill.

I don't see why 'fans' have to get so worked up about criticism...

P.S No one is allowed to have an opinion on YouTube without receiving hate.

ohhh filler anime... and there fan base.... one thing i will say, if they never made the anime and condensed all the naruto story in to a 4 season (48 ep) show (which seems very possible considering the filler part), then id saw id be a platinum tier anime easly, it dose have is extremely good moments but for the most part is just flash backs..... of flash backs...filler..

See you around, and welcome to CR, by the way. Be careful with who you engage, though. I'm an absolute peach in comparison to some that you'll find. We've a few notably persistent debaters, along with some trollers and part-time trollers. They're not especially difficult to recognize, so you ought to be able to spot them just fine. Also, on occasion, scammers may pm you a message. We've occasionally been plagued by bonafide Nigerian con artists. There are some creepers, too, but they often get banned for up to hundreds of years early on.

Also, don't bother trying to take a certain user named Phersu too seriously. He's a goof. I advise that you go along with his "face-stealing" CR persona, to make it easier.

The mods have a low tolerance for quote pyramids, too.
