Srsly, where do people find all these Elitists i keep hearing about?

The ones that say modern anime sucks and hate on everything that is new and hate casual shows and only like all the smart shows.

Were they really that common back in the early days of mal?

Cause in all honesty i have seen more anti-elitists than i see elitists. :/

Note: im just using the phrase they like to use, i know that the anti elitists are usually elitists themselves.]

It doesn't matter whether you like Fairy tail and SAO or LoTGH and tatami galaxy, Elitism is how you act.
If you act like one, you are an elitist.
Elitist:
noun
a person having, thought to have, or professing superior intellect or talent.

There is a thin line that separates die hard fanboys, and elitists.-some dude 2015
it is ok to proclaim you like a series and make videos about it, but those haters? They should keep their mouth shut.-some anime fan 2016
everyone can have their own opinions, but those people who hate on popular series?They just hatin.-some so called anti elitist 2017

He probably meant they will pop up to trash all the new highly anticipated shows.


But Where have you been the past few days? I personally don't care, but I'm not going to deny that they're aren't plenty of elitists. The real problem though, are the "anti-elitists". Since I became an active member on the forums, I've never really seen any elitists randomly going around trashing shows for no reason. It's usually always someone who makes a thread regarding topic that will no doubt attract elitists/wanna be elitists because they think it's cool.

theres was a recent thread on an elitist who hated rezero but loved Erased and shouwa genroku

it seems the general definition of elitist has shifted to the more accurate description of anyone who feels their opinions are more impactful than others'

Eva is better in a literal judging, but Elfen Lied is more enjoyable... I use to create thread about it here, only to be deleted by mods due to the amount of salt

Well to sum it up, anyone who thinks their taste in anime is better is an elitist. That's how simple the definition is!

As long as you keep sprouting non-sense that this Person-X has shit taste for liking Anime-Z, then you're no different.

I wonder why we're making this too complicated. lol

Anti-elitists are just idiots who don't get that most "elitists" are trolls or are simply miscategorised by them.

Kinda like anti-fascists nowadays. "<Insert name here> is a fascists! It's OK to punch a Nazi." Then they go off calling everyone a fascist.
I swear I'm not a lolicon.

If your favourite character is Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko, you are my soul mate.

Opinions are all relevant. I express mine freely and believe everyone should too. Unless you say "<Insert anime here> is the best! Everything else sucks", then GTFO.

Honestly I'm inclined to agree with this observation -- it's not about one's tastes so much as it is about certain people's tendency to try to lord it over others.

The fandom DOES have preferences for certain shows over others, as a general rule -- ask for general recs and you'll almost certainly get Cowboy Bebop and Baccano, you might get Angel Beats and Death Note, you'll occasionally get Nanoha and Crest of the Stars, and you'll almost never get Umi Monogatari and Kiddy Grade, for example.

But statistics are computable for any such grouping. What's more important is what people do with these statistics. Some people like to use them to establish social superiority one way or another, either by using that as a social meterstick or fighting against it.

Please do note that anybody who espouses an "Elitist" viewpoint is elitist. Regardless of how serious that person is.
When I see somebody killing people, I will not ask whether they're doing it ironically.

Also, "elitist" is exactly about people's taste not aligning with anything except a few works that suck up to elitists. A stereotypical elitist should like a modern show like Occultic;Nine just because it's hard to understand and inaccessible.

Idk how serious you are but comparing 4 of the most popular and acclaimed shows to some ecchi who 10k people have seen? I never see some of my favorites recommended either and its totally understandable, as some series/movies just arent that popular. A much more valid example would be comparing how often one of the shows you listed and Naruto/Bleach/Fairy Tail get recommended.

If someone believes anime quality is objective then it means they're an elitist. If you make another thread asking people if they think anime quality is objective I bet you'll find loads of elitists. Elitist just means "someone who believes quality is determined by the opinions of the elite who have better taste than the rest and generally consider themselves to be one of these people". Casuals can be elitists just as long as they believe.

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to say...

What I meant to say was that it's simply fact that some things are more popular than other things, and that that by itself isn't really as important as how people interpret this fact to suit whatever opinion they espouse or whatever point they want to make.

(Also I'd hesitate to call Kiddy Grade "ecchi" as it really doesn't have much more fanservice than a lot of things, and focusing on that basically misses what the story is about. So I've always disagreed with MAL's label there. But whatever. Forcing people to watch stuff one likes isn't something I want to do anyway.)

I repent! I'm definitely not an elitist; I don't like, or even acknowledge, LOGTH, Berserk, or Monster. It's impossible.

@GlennMagusHARVEY I just meant that when measuring the fandoms preferences by the number of recommendations, Kiddy Grade is no match for something like Cowboy Bebop/Angel Beats/Death Note as theyre overwhelmingly more popular so Naruto and Bleach would be better examples of even more popular series getting recommended less.


Oshii is probably the only director that loves dogs. He thinks he's a dog himself.

That's right, its slime! It will dissolve your clothing slowly before my eyes!

I still haven't decided whether it's a good or a bad thing that I haven't seen most of the shows on these general rec lists.

Honestly it's probably neutral or good depending on what I'm in the mood for. I certainly don't hate these series for them being popular (though the amount to which LOGTH gets bandied around as The Show That People With Good Taste Always Praise can get rather excessive at times). Besides, of the ones I've seen, some I really like while others I found to fall flat for me.

Some people may say it's bad because I'm not getting exposure to more styles of anime, but then that leads to the question of "why do you watch anime?" to which my answer is "because I enjoy it", not "because I need to study it for class" or something.

Ah I see what you mean. That's probably a more rigorous to look at it since it controls for base popularity.

I was thinking of including SAO, AOT, or Guilty Crown as examples but I figured they might be confusing for my point. But actually they could serve yours.

It's never "bad;" though my recommendation is to ignore anything regarding taste and such, as long as you're able to find anime that you enjoy watching. When you're no longer able to find such anime then, I believe that, is the time to broaden your anime horizons, and get a taste for the most famous and acclaimed anime of each genre. Assuming you still want to watch anime.

Oh boy, an elitist thread on monday. What a nice way to start the week.
"For you, the day you made a thread about elitists on MAL was a very important day in your life. But for the anime community, it was Monday."

If that post isn't ironic, there'd be so many things wrong in it that I wouldn't know where to start.
Waiting for summer 2017

I was mocking the commonness of this topic. Dunno if that counts as ironic.
