Post Reply What Level Of Anime Fandom Are You?
Posted 9/11/15
The Critic, but I only care about story/premise. I mean, I did drop a show recently because a character was acting extremely dumb - they did something if they did in real life they'd likely would have died [and I watched it because it was a realistic show], but yeah.


I always tell people I enjoy anime (as you wrote). I don't even think it is that anime is getting worse. It is that I can basically identify all the tropes and so the magic isn't really there. And so, I prefer to watch a rare show that keeps my attention or just re-watch.

These are less levels and more archetypes, but good fun regardless. The trouble is that I don't neatly fit any of them.

I have a few physical manga series and I've watched a little under 100 anime. I'd say that's in between an average anime fan and a superfan, so I'm a moderate anime fan I guess?

Where does "sick of high school students and harem light novel adaptations, only watches old anime and very few new ones" fall into?

I guess I'm the Picky Ojiisan or something.

i would def need to say that i am a super fan as i watch anime for hours a day on a daily basis...

that being said i have never bought any anime or manga merchandise and unless something falls in front of me that is too perfect not to have i dont plan on it. Also stuff is expensive and im barely living from paycheck to paycheck to buy some of the crazy figures i see.

Just wondering what level everyone here classifies themselves as.


The Average Anime Fan

This type of anime fan is quite knowledgable when it comes to seasonal series. Probably watched a couple of big shonen series (Naruto,Bleach, DBZ, One piece) They know whats coming out this season and what they're strictly interested in. Types of fans that know what day their shows come out with a new episode. Probably owns a poster and a few manga volumes. Not super into spending money on merchandise but they make it a point to pick up something regarding their favorite series.

The Superfan

These types of fans are also quite knowledgable when it comes to seasonal anime. They at least know whats airing.... But they have a wide variety of knowledge regarding a couple series they love. They make it a point to obtain as much merchandise they possibly can regarding their favorite series. Doesn't necessarily have to be super dedicated to a certain series but they do feel super passionately about certain series. This category is something for the people a little higher then your average fan.

I am somewhere between these two.

I'm certainly above the Average Anime Fan when it come to depth and breadth of knowledge, but I don't buy merchandise.

Somewhere in the Average-Superfan-Critic range. I keep up with seasonal anime and usually watch about 6-10 per season on average. I don't buy a lot of merch (though I do own a small collection of manga), but I do pay close attention to the things I watch and keep a database of anime to recommend to friends based on their merits and content. "Superfan without merchandise" probably describes me best, but I'm working on getting to Critic level.
