Can fandoms ruin a series for you?

Absolutely. I mean, maybe it doesn't ruin the series for me? If something is objectively good i can't say that I dislike it, but it becomes increasingly hard to genuinely appreciate something that's constantly shoved down your throat. People talk about all the shows that they're watching and telling me that I HAVE to watch it because it's SOO good. It's not like i doubt them, but there are other things that i want to watch and see for myself, and i'll end up having to put everything else off for it. And then people act like its a sin for you to prioritize anything else above their current 'favorite'. It really turns me off of a series when it becomes what is essentially mandatory involvement.

On the other hand, however, there are certain things that i am unable to contain my excitement over. I suppose its unfair for me, or anyone else in a fandom for that matter, to tell others how they should feel about a show, but its somewhat rare to find something that you really and truly connect with that you can't help but sing it's praises. But i try to keep any mention of it as a passive suggestion to others if they haven't seen or read it yet. I won't lie about the slight ego boost I get when someone ends up really enjoying something that i had suggested to them though

Yep. Don't watch naruto anymore because the fans are so obnoxious

Is it even possible to be more annoying than the character Naruto?

I try to avoid comments and series discussion threads for exactly this reason. If you can avoid the obnoxious, they cannot affect you.

I enjoy what I enjoy and simply ignore anything negative someone might say or do pertaining to the anime I like (unless it's legitimate critisizm or I find it funny myself), whether they're from a fandom or not.

Not anime related, but I hate most of the Smash Bros. fandom, well the competitive community anyway.

I haven't been turned off too much by a fandom yet. Maybe thats because I haven't seen enough fandoms in real life to experience the worst. I've heard bad things on the internet though about certain fandoms being "super autistic".

Not really. They actually make it better for me

NO. I'm pretty good at ignoring what other people think. I like what I like, and that's that.

Absolutely not. Whether or not I enjoy a series is based solely on the series itself. If the community surrounding it is full of cancerous idiots, I'll simply not involve myself with them.

I'm the kind of person who usually wants to see a series if a lot of things are said about it, period. Good, bad, what have you.

Once I've seen enough and can start forming my own opinions of it, how other people experience and share it with others hardly affects me.

I find some fandoms a tad annoying, but none of them could put me off liking something.
