Cringy shit in public, like dress up and mix japanese words into their english. You don't have to be closet about it, like you can wear shirts and merchandise and read manga in public but stop adding more and more stigma.

But then on the other hand, I feel like I don't really care that much. If I had to pick, it'd be the above, but those people aren't me, so they don't represent me.

My pet peeves with the Anime fandom include:

People who only watch modern Anime, people who only watch subs, people who call all dubs bad, "Cult of Lum" members, people who have their favorites list full of psychological seinen Anime, and people who keep asking others to join their "Discord," whatever the hell that is.

Anything from 2000 to present is "Modern Anime," but for Anime to truly be "old school," it needs to be pre-1995. I love old school Anime.

I've never used Skype to TeamSpeak before, and I've never heard of TeamSpeak before now.

Nice try, but I'm not a hipster.

I'm currently watching the second season of "Kaitou Joker."

People who are biased against modern anime or people who don't rate things on their list. It should be mandatory that you can't mark it completed without giving it a rating.

I really hate when people rate an anime 4 or less out of ten JUST because the ending was badly done, even if they enjoyed the other parts of anime.

Nope, it is completely reasonable to finish a show and not rate it, There are hundred of shorts anime which are too short to even articulate an opinion and give them a rating, same goes for shows you finished long ago and adding them in your list now.

Anime fans who keep saying "All anime fans are perverts" or "All men are perverts." - If you're pervert fine whatever, but stop saying everyone else is a pervert like you.

"Don't like, Don't Watch" - The only time I have a problem with this saying is when the person who said this goes and complain about something they don't like. Okay? Shouldn't​ you apply that to yourself before telling others to do the same.

Also, fans who say you only watch a show for fan service. I remember when I talking with some friends and mentioned that I like Kill la Kill. Ugh. It annoyed me when they think that.

What makes all anime fans perverts? Almost every time I hear someone saying that. They are usually just somebody who faps to pictures of anime characters. Is that really consider perverted?

Fans who think their taste in anime is the only one that matters (aka 2/3 or more of the community).

"old-fags" who try to shit on anyone who likes to watch modern anime.

Cringy weebs that give anime fans their gross stereotype.

.Always hating on cartoons for no reason even though anime can be shit too.
. Always complaining about CG even though hand drawn can look like shit too. Case in point







.Always acting like 2d handdrawn is the only animation and everything else isn't animation.
. Always liking lolis and hating adult female characters.
.Always liking tsunderes even though they are shit characters.
. Weebs thinking wearing a kimono and saying arigatou and kawaii makes you Japanese.

One thing that comes to mind are that some parts, or probably most of the community in general, have an assumption that newer= better. And that people like this won't even watch anything pre-2010 because that's 'too old'. Apparently consuming any sort of retro media is bad or they don't understand why you're watching that anime from 1985. I watch both old and new anime so it's something that's always baffled me.


Fans who go overboard with the whole waifu culture, I never understood that and if you're into all of that unironically than I don't really know what to tell you, other than that you should look into seeking help.

Ecchi 'elitist'; it comes off as ridiculous already, but I've noticed that(on this forum at least) that there are people who are so hardcore into any series that is tagged as ecchi and swear left and right that it is a brilliant show and anyone who scoffs at the notion hates fun things.

Anime fans who can't take anything they watch seriously. Like I get if you're watching something really stupid or trashy, but I remember joining in on a simulwatch of Tokyo Godfathers with a teamspeak group I was a part of, and while the film is brilliant and incredibly touching and sentimental, I was getting annoyed about their empty, 'humorous' comments, thinking this is just a joke. I remember reading up on what made that movie so great and I really wanted to discuss the merits of the film and some of the theories surrounding the plot points of it. They criticized trivial things that made sense once you looked into it, or if you understood the message/theme of the film. Instead I get a "dude calm down it's just a movie lol".

I don't do simulwatches with many people because of things like that. If you want to watch something retarded and pretend you're a guest host of rifftrax and think you're so witty and humorous, knock yourself out. But if you're watching a serious film with people then have some tact and keep that shit to yourself. Because there might be others that actually genuinely enjoyed the movie and want to share that excitement with others in a genuine way.

Fandoms are annoying as it is, but I really hate fictitious competitions between characters that fandoms set up.

Why do people have to pick teams. Emilia vs Rem is perfect example. What the fuck.

Just that the anime fandom likes to kinda hate on itself sometimes. I think it's cause a lot of anime is terrifyingly well made, and this gets to people in ways they didn't expect.

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness." - Henry David Thoreau

Harem. It's an instant turn off for me

Too much fanservice. Even shounens have become almost like softcore porn.

The power of friendship bullshit. That's like the king of cringe.

Too much screaming. Sometimes it gets really annoying.

"The pain of loneliness" ayyy

Children being sexualized

Useless main characters talking big without being able to back it up. "I'll save everyone" "I'll kill all the monsters and save the world!" "Nobody will be sacrificed" - this kind of shit.

--------------------

It was these things that made me turn towards Chinese and Korean novels. Ofc, they're not perfect either, but at least there the MC is usually not a useless idiot or a spineless pervert.

However, from time to time, I still find some good anime series...and when I do, I become even happier than on my birthdays lol

Autism? Lolicons? The other stuff?

Time to find a person who is a lolicon, has autism, plays with fidget spinners, uses anime boobs as their sigs, and takes anime super seriously.

Some anime fans become too aggressive displaying their anime hobbies to others. They make people near the area very comfortable while they search for a quick exit.
