Are anime fans the weird kids?
Posted 6/4/15
I think Football fans are the crazies and weirdest fan out there.
Example.
What are you ? The incredible cheesy hulk ?

Wow

Disney when hentai mode. There goes another childhood memory.

Football fans freak me out too. They're definitely the most violent.

And if they say "who's your team?" I've learnt that "i don't like football" isn't a valid answer o.o

I'm into anime, and have been since I was a little kid, but I've never felt the need to project that interest in real life. It's just a medium of entertainment I happen to enjoy.

When my dad decides to watch football. I put my headphones on and listing to laud music, while playing a video game.

Why ? Because every noise that he or the people who decide to make their temporally den on the living room, is animal noise to me. I can't even understand what they are even saying.

When they ask me who is your favorite team. I say... The winning team. Usually they star fighting over who is the most likely to win and why. And then I proceed to escape.

I don't blame you. I tend to put my headphones on and hide in my room too. My dad shouts absolute nonsense at the tv when football is on. He will argue with anyone about football too. Taxi drivers, waiters, shop assistants, just anybody... it drives me mad. And they get so angry about it. If they say they support a different team to the other one, they act is if the person confessed to serial murder.

There are definitely fans of pretty much everything that fall into the.. extreme category, and there's really nothing wrong with that. I don't think there's necessarily any direct connection between liking anime and being weird unless you consider being okay with liking something that's not totally mainstream to be weird.

And I don't recommend doing it anywhere in the state of Wisconsin. Any answer besides "Packers", and you may not live to see the consequences.
And not just from the cheesy-Hulk guy.

Every fanbase has their weirdos. Anime just happens to have a lot of them... Maybe too many.

There are "levels" of anime fans, so there's the average people then there's the F'd up fans... I'm a really weird person but I have my limits.

It all goes back to the Old Stereotypes that Males in particular, were to abide by. You're not allowed to show emotion...Shed a SINGLE tear, and Your Man card is revoked...And among the WORST things a Man could do, would be to ask another for their help or support regarding ANYTHING. On the Other side of the coin, the Female from the very beginning was supposed to be a meek, ask no questions, the Man's word when He tells You to do ANYTHING, it had better be done the way He expects You to handle it, and "I" better not hear a SINGLE complaint Out of You, or You'll be eating the back of My hand.

Our Societies have LONG had an "order"...again, more Stereotypes gone into function into the absolute DEEPEST facets of what We recall as an "Ideal" Childhood...I can't speak for Other Countries and their functions of Government and the standards that Operate from Outside the United States, but this I do know...You know the word Propaganda? So called calls to an action of what could be getting You to join up into the many different Military Forces...False flag operations that are of NOTHING consistent and HONEST, rather biased beyond all understandings or NEEDFUL purpose, Other than publicizing..."Stirring the Pot" by feeding You ABSOLUTE LIES that in SOME CASES American Citizens who were coaxed to join into the Military LOST THEIR LIVES FOR NOTHING OTHER THAN POLITICAL GAIN, as well as usually getting a nice stock and loads more American's who now are nothing but pawns...They were Honest People who TRUSTED their Government, are fiercely protective of Our Constitution and Bill of Rights that these INFINITELY Power hungry, vile Snakes in the grass could all but give a Damn for. During the Industrial age when America was fulfilling and actually Working upon things which led Us to become a "Superpower", the United States Government was all but COMPLETELY backed by the 'titans'...Those Families such as Rockefeller...Vanderbilt, Carnegie, Morgan, Ford and Others not only built Our Country from the ground up, but also controlled a QUITE significant chunk of the ENTIRE U.S. economy. Heck, Rockefeller HIMSELF controlled close to 2% on His Own! These Men were the Ones who were responsible for creating the Preschool through 12th Grade, or Senior Year idea. THEY chose what would be taught and what wouldn't. From the very instant You inhale Your first breathe of Air after Birth, You are from that VERY SECOND being programmed to do what, not a consensus of the American Citizens might have had to add to the conversation; Rather, but a few Men of immense Wealth and immense Stature have come up with. NO, You may NOT Question any opposition You may have to Our ideal Journey that American Children are set upon ALL in the cause of eventually becoming a reverent and overly respectable Capitalist.

Children are the key to perpetual National stabilization, and from the moment after the Doctor smacks Your butt and Identification Papers of some sort put on You...From then on, You are to go with what is best for Yourself; either a little Boy or Girl. Indoctrination comes from Years upon Years of simply being a "Yes Man". Here I give an example of speaking to both a Young Girl and a Young Boy. Pretend the "Speaker" is Rockefeller.

"Hello there, little Boy! I bet You would sure love to have this Toy Train as well as this Action figure! He represents what a Man's Spirit is all about: Steadfastness, being Responsible, Honesty, Congeniality, and capable. NOW, on the Other Hand, remember...Boys are TOUGH. We keep Our emotions within Us. As of course, the Woman of the House is but a Housewife and nothing more, You must ALWAYS be ready to assume taking over what Your Father may no longer be able to do. A Boy gets His hands dirty. He looks at leisure as something Sissies look forward to. Once You're labeled a Sissy, You may as well hit the Road, because Your PERSONAL disgrace means NOTHING. What matters, is You let down Your Mother and Your little Sisters. Such impudence besmears any "so called" Worth Your Family had up til then. Speaking of Your Sisters there is One of them now. Hello there! Oh, it's okay; You have permission to look Me eye to eye. Good Girl, however for remembering Her place. I imagine You help Out Your Mother with chores and anything else AROUND THE HOUSE that needs to be done. For that, I present Your with Your very Own Doll as well as small Carriage for You. Girls just LOVE Dolls and Other various hobbies...Knitting, Crotchet, and helping Your Mother with making the Meals, and remembering that as a Girl, You are to silence all and any thoughts that may in some way make You do something completely inappropriate like playing Sports like the Boys do, or having fun with something like the Train that I brought for Him. That would just be throwing all but everything Out the window when it comes to knowing the place You hold as a not only a Daughter, but as a Female, period and altogether. Always remember, MEN make the decisions. You Girls and Ladies are to remain meek and "Lady-like" and to back up and fully help follow Us Men Out in any needed way regarding the decisions that We make. Am I correct? Good Girl."

So You're probably like, "UHHHHHH...Okayyyyyyy....When the HELL are You going to get to the point regarding the Topic of the Subject that You made?! Especially regarding We Males, with Anime and Manga, especially if You are One who likes the many Moe and the Tsundere Shows and Manga...That, I'm sure that Other Males and Women alike who are close minded...And it's not THEIR fault. I said above indoctrination comes from Years of judging Genders upon Stereotypes that are said to be those type of things, from the Toys We grew up with...To the 21'st Century version of a Males responsibilities and obligations. This may be controversial of Me to say, but Women are the Ones who have gained more "Freedoms"...Which are actually simply FINALLY laxed Stereotypical judgments. For We Men? Not much has changed at all. Nowadays its perfectly fine for a Woman to fight in the Octagon, or be a Body builder; Really, Women have free rein over what is now appropriate for Females...While We Men are STILL looked at by many as an oddity if We collect Figures from Our favorite Animes. The "Brony Community" actually managed to put MEN'S capabilities and behaviors in this Day and Age at the forefront. And You see how disgusted most of the responses were? How baffled they were? It's the same with Anime. Oh, and that was in NO WAY a comparison of "Bronies" to the normal everyday Male Anime Fan who embraces all Genres. I don't consider Myself in any way to be embracing anything weird, but again that's not what most of the rest of the Country would say to You. I just embrace what makes Me happy; stereotypical bastards be damned.

I do not think most anime fans are weird. Just like in any hobby there are those who become obsessed about it. For example someone who is obsessed about a garden can be just as crazy as someone who is obsessed about anime. What annoys me is that there are those super fans who are plain weird give us normal fans a bad name. If you say you like anime people immediately think you are a freak because they met that one super anime fan who was strange.

Gomenasai, my name is Ken-Sama.

I’m a 27 year old American Otaku (Anime fan for you gaijins). I draw Anime and Manga on my tablet, and spend my days perfecting my art and playing superior Japanese games. (Disgaea, Final Fantasy, Persona series)

I train with my Katana every day, this superior weapon can cut clean through steel because it is folded over a thousand times, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my sword license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.

I speak Japanese fluently, both Kanji and the Osaka dialect, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about Japanese history and their bushido code, which I follow 100%

When I get my Japanese visa, I am moving to Tokyo to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an animator for Studio Ghibli or a game designer!

I own several kimonos, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to Japan, so I can fit in easier. I bow to my elders and seniors and speak Japanese as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.

Wish me luck in Japan!
