Tumblr and Anime
Posted 7/1/15
I am not a fan of Tumblr whatsoever, but there is a large portion of Tumblr for anime. From what I've seen, it's mostly what you'd expect from the users of that site to like, with lots of yaoi, manservice, and of course, Hetalia.

But, to a lot of people, Tumblr's relationship with anime is sort of troublesome, as they feel it's a diluted form of what anime is, and the yaoi is especially problematic, as it's not well liked. Lots of them watch "entry level stuff" and don't leave that realm often.

I say despite this, it's great, more platforms for new fans. But a lot of people disagree.





What do you think about Tumblr and anime?

Imagine you're in a place with lots of people, and there is this one group in particular that stand out (but not in a good way). Other people are also walking around and by looking at you, judge you that you kinda like anime (maybe because of simple t-shirt you wear, or a bag). As you're walking you approach closer to this group, for some reason you don't want them to see you. Is it because they're being loud and obnoxious, maybe it's that guy with his greasy ass hair or the smell of B.O that creeps closer.

These are the kind of people that go on tumblr with their anime crap. The ones who make you feel embarrassed to like anime. When you mention you like anime to those who don't understand, they don't think of good story telling shows, or great characters and great music, they think of those weirdos with level 99 virginity.

I won't accept them, nor tumblr.

Mm, I don't really use tumblr as it pertains to anime unless im trying too find a gif for a certain anime but that's it.. I've never really considered using that site, im not a fan of yaoi , that's one reason why I don't use tumblr.

does it actually matter? people are watching anime, getting excited over anime, and talking about anime with other people. it doesn't matter WHAT anime they're watching or where they go to talk about it. don't like yaoi? don't watch it. don't like "entry level" stuff? don't watch it. what is that, even, anyway? you make it sound like first lvl bondage or something. so what. some people never go past the easy stuff. and who cares. if it bothers you that much, don't go to tumblr

I strongly dislike Tumblr, no matter what it's used for. That includes anime and manga.

I only go on there to snag the occasional anime gif, and that's all.

Why do ppl complain about tumblr users so much (the ones that plain dont exist & the ones that take up such a minuscule amount of tumblr as well)?
Its a good place for anime though, I agree.

I hate all tumblr wannabe otaku weeaboos, they're so immature and tarnish the otaku name. As a long time actual anime fan and real otaku, I think tumblers should take a long hard look at themselves and watch classic great animes such as bleach and [email protected] Thankyou for reading.

What I'm trying to say is that I don't really care, people can do what they want.

You can find some nice anime gifs on tumblr. That's all tumblr is good for, though...
