Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

I was just wondering if you could possibly enjoy a show but not like the fandom. Because I love an anime series but the fandom of that series I don't really like. The same applies to genre, music, books, and etc. I just wanted to know if it's possible. I know that the fandom and the show have nothing in common. Yet I still want to know if it's possible. What are your thoughts on this?

Enjoy!!!

Absolutely, no problem. I hate a lot of fandoms and still like the anime they like. I don't let anyone ruin that for me.

Oh yeah. Big time lol... A lot of mainstream anime come to mind.

It's like when a song you love gets overplayed/overhyped on the radio and everywhere you go people are referencing it to an annoying degree. You can't help but like the song but hate all the noise surrounding it.

Yes.

I'd say so.

I like the game minecraft, but it pisses me off how most of the fandom is made up of ten year old "trolls" who spend most of their time outside the game playing COD.

I kinda like Undertale too, but to be honest, sometimes I feel like it's a little too hyped up...

Why would it not be possible?

I mean is this even a serious question?

"Can I like French Fries but not like other people who like French Fries?"

There will be absolutely no one who's going to give you an answer other than "yes." There's no other answer. Hell, ya even had your answer before you started the thread--you said you like an anime series but hate the fandom, you like a music genre but hate the fandom.

The quality of a show and the fandom are two completely separate issues.

If you don't like the fan sites, avoid them while enjoying the show.

The show was cute and fun in small doses, but anyone that can find their way here knows what I'm talking about.

Conversely, I like some Nickelback songs. 'Nuff said.

Loved your analogy, dude. I can definitely see someone raving about french fries and you muttering under your breath, "Annoying piece of shit..."

It's probably because you failed to realize who Best Pony is.

Yup! The quality of the show and the quality of its fans are two different things.

I would say yes. Some fandoms are really shitty.

Yes. Case in point, Bronies, Steven Universe....
