there have been other topics discussing which anime or franchise has the most annoying, toxic fanbase, but they didn't feature a poll so that we could have a clearer picture of the perception of the community.

which anime do you think has the worst fanbase, and why?? I've included a list of some the most notable titles/properties in the poll with well-defined, vocal fanbases, it's obviously not exhaustive so I've included an "other" option. Don't forget to include your reasons. Also I've only included series, since they tend to have more developed fanbases than movies.

I'm personally voting for Hunter x Hunter, I have nothing against the series but it's very annoying to see and read everywhere how its fanbase constantly acts like they have superior taste in shonen anime and constantly shit on all the other mainstream shonen anime (except FMAB), which is a very arrogant attitude. also, they can't and won't accept any criticism or negative opinion made towards their favorite anime, if you do so then you are an ignorant or you have bad taste, so you really can have any sort of healthy discussion with them.

There's far more fanbases than this... :P

I voted "Other". That's because I want to highlight "hatebases". The SAO hatedom for example is really obnoxious.

I don't really pay attention to the fanbases much, but I guess the Clannad fanbase. No, I don't care how good After Story is, I don't want to sit through the harem SoL first season.

It's between:
-One Piece
-One Punch Man (recently about the studio change)
-FMA: Brotherhood
-Dragon Ball
-Naruto
-Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure
-Neon Genesis Evangelion
-Hunter X Hunter
-Tokyo Ghoul (even more after that bullshit people sending hate mails to the creator)
-Fairy Tail

I don't know which of them are the worst, and I couldn't pick just one, but I list them as the worst, and the most annoying fanbases in anime community
We are EVERYWHERE...

Every fanbase annoys me honestly, but then again I'm a fairly easy person to annoy

Think the ones I feel I've had the most annoying run-ins with would probably Oregairu, Monogatari, and DxD

The first and second are for similar reasons - perceived pretentiousness in relation to the product, albeit they differ in *how* they seem to have a tendency to act pretentious about it - and the latter is because "omg i watched and liked DxD an overall pretty tame and mainstream friendly ecchi i'm such a degenerate lol and i'm never going to look further into the genre than this one show that's pretty much the the attack on titan or sword art online for this specific genre and then pose as if i'm super hardcore perv"

I'm not Mamster-tier about DxD fans, he says they're not even ecchi fans if it's in their favorites and I think that's absolutely ridiculous and even outright unacceptable, but...egh, yeah, no, I will admit that it feels like there's a strong tendency towards posturing there due to the mixture of the popularity, accessibility, and the content of the series. Which annoys me a lot whenever it pops up, as somebody who's so into this type of stuff that he runs the largest club for it on this site and scours through decades' old ecchi OVAs rather than brickwalling and acting like a total degenerate after having seen fucking DxD of all things.

It's like when somebody who's only ever seen Attack on Titan tries to act like they're the most hardcore anime fan, I guess. Whenever people do that, it does annoy me, and I think it does have a strong tendency with DxD fans.

As a Monogatari fan I can see why you say what you said, honestly.

About the fanbases... I voted Jojo but I think the 80 % of the list deserve it.

For me, the Jojo fanbase. Not everything is a damn Jojo's reference, and they tend to be the one's who call people weebs, while having a picture of a Jojo character as their pfp. Simple, but justified reasons for me calling the fanbase annoying.

Tatami Galaxy, without a doubt.

Not because all Yuasa fans are bad, but because all anime "connoisseurs" are Yuasa fans. Without exception.
1 hour = 10,000 yen.
2 hours = 20,000 yen.
3 hours = 3 loaves of French bread.
4 hours = 4 loaves of French bread.

For me personally, The Promised Neverland, it was just so cancer if you so much as whispered something negative about the show, especially after the 1st ep.

From what I've seen, Darling in the Franxx fans. I've said it a couple of times before but sending death threats just because your ship didn't sail isn't really a reason at all. Or, Sound! Euphorium fans, well the yuri shippers at least

Meh. This is an answer I've never liked in these types of threads - not because admonishing that behavior isn't justified, but because it's something that always changes with whatever the most recent outburst about this was. We forget the one before it, and then we forget that one when one comes after it.

Anybody remember before the FranXX dilemma and how all of these threads were filled with Tokyo Ghoul answers due to how they sent death threats to the mangaka over their ship not sailing?

I think it's honestly gotta be the Attack on Titan fans for me. I don't even think it's a bad show, but man, the second I said one negative thing in the series discussion for a recent episode, I had like three people come to my profile and call me out for it.

Did that really happen lol? Wasn't aware of that. Welp, either way, it's not like that's the only issue with DiTF fans, the whole circlejerk over loving 02 and hating Ichigo is pretty toxic in itself amongst other things

Mostly Attack on Titan, not sure if it's still a thing, I'm not up to date atm, but I really hate Levi, and when it comes to his fangirls shipping him with Eren it's ummm... I don't like it at all, k? Not to mention the fact that writing a bad word about this show will result in a HUUGE butthurt from it's fanbase. Many of them also feel superior to other anime watchers cuz they think that SnK is "da best show" for some unknown reasons. It gets even worse cuz of the 3rd season hype

2nd place goes for Jojo, literally the same memes and references over and over again are pretty damn boring

Also Code Geass, "200IQ" Lelouch lovers are annoying

Anyone who insists their show is the undisputed best when there is no best or worst show, film, song, or video game anymore than there is a best or worst food, color, or temperature. It's 100% subjective.

As to who I see this from the most as far as the major fanbases go, it's something of a toss-up between Attack on Titan and Evangelion.

Honorable mention to FMAB.

It's not really the same kind of answer, but the Fairy Tail fanbase just became absurdly dumb in my eyes when they still loved FT even after Alvarez. Like seriously.

This shit is why we never get ship sails in 99% of anime, and therefore never get a meaningful progression of character relationships. Folks care too much about fictional characters.

any popular anime fandom that have heavy shippers in them
- Darling in the FranXX is already mentioned
- Tokyo Ghoul also is one when a lot of fans sent death threats too because the main character have sex with his lover girl
- Bleach fans also send death threats because muh ships did not sail afaik

that is the classic kyoani style, but i won't force anyone to watch a certain series since everyone have their own taste. if you know someone who always force you to watch a certain series, just block them (i did it too to many of my friend(not anymore) who always force me to watch isekai anime ( i don't hate it, but i just don't feel like i could enjoy it))

I voted for Fairy Tail since I was a part of it for many years.

People would get hostile with one another over different opinions.

Also people got extremely salty if you shipped anything that was not part of the "Big 4" (NaLu, Gruvia, Jerza, and Gajevy).

I guess nothing really annoys me anime-wise or fandom-wise - I'm very Zen regarding other individuals tastes and choices in ANYTHING LOL, but I voted for Seven Deadly Sins anyway, just because I thought the series wasn't very good, and didn't live up to it's hype, or my expectations of it. I'm not so sure if the fan base is annoying per se, but they should know better than to like something as vacuous as that LOL. Then again I like SAO and some people consider that as the epitome of vacuity. It's all in the eye of the beholder my dear chap/chapette, but it's still good to see SAO take a break (from the hatred and abuse) in this polling - so far, anyway!

I generally tend to avoid any fandom discussions and whatnot for my own mental health's sake and idk for sure but the most obnoxious I've seen so far is LOGH fanbase. Those dudes are so religious about their little space opera, god forbid you to call it anything but masterpiece, they will come after you harder than if you had offended their mother.

I only know community in this site, and it is always bothered me why terrible One Piece anime still in top airing ranking.. But in the forum, Attack of Titan fanbase is the most annoying one I think ...

Oh wow I didn't realise how much people were annoyed by Jojo fans xD

I voted Fairy Tail because the die-hard fans try so hard to defend the series when the creator himself can't, it's a really enjoyable series but they should just embrace how flawed it is.

I was really close to picking BNHA tho because a lot of those fangirls need to settle tf down.

Definitely gotta go with HxH. Can't say one bad thing about the show without someone attacking you, talking about the deconstruction of whatever. Plus many HxH fans automatically think its the best shonen ever just because it gets a little dark during the Chimera Ant Arc and because it's less popular than DBZ, Naruto,One Piece etc. and they'll call every other shonen (besides FMAB) trash. Second most annoying would be JoJo and I don't need to explain why. JoJo could actually very easily be number 1.

Definitely the JoJo fuckbois. At least the shounen or any huge mainstream anime fanboys stick to their own fandoms and have their stupid fights among themselves, or with other fanbases at appropriate places. But I can't go on a single anime video, or even other videos that have anime fans as viewers, without seeing a shitty "it was me DIo" meme shoved in the comments section.

I don't know the fandom from the inside if they're toxic between them or not but the Jojo's fanbase annoys me a little (too much), they're like Jehovah's Witnesses for fuck sake, that and the snob attitude that some part of the fanbase have, specially those who read SBR.

JoJo. As much as I like some of the memes, it gets a bit overbearing when the fandom tries to find a JoJo reference in everything.

Re:Zero. All the interesting discussion is drowned out by waifu wars.

Neon Genesis Evangelion. Similar problem as the Re:Zero fandom though to a lesser extent.

My Hero Academia. So much shipping...

I feel a fan base can feel more annoying being outside of it, and considering I am a part of the Jojo fandom, it’s less annoying to me than it could be, or used to be. But it’s still annoying as fuck....if I have to hear kono dio da one more time i’m going to blow my brains out

...however.... the hero academia fandom irks me even more. Jesus Christ, It’s absolutely hellish. There are good hero academia fans, but it’s hard to ignore what it’s spawned

Re:zero is a little annoying too, but Jojo and hero academia top it

However I don’t judge people based off of the shows they like, don’t let a fan base ruin something for you, just enjoy it.

I'm debating between Dragon Ball and Attack on Titan. Dragon Ball fans are more toxic in general, but most of the toxic are from kids so I can somewhat forgive them.

The titan fanbase, on the other hand... oh boy, you've got the manga fans who just have to spoil it for everybody on every forum in existence. You've got the "it's da best show eveeeeeer" group who will pick a fight with you the moment you say a single negative thing about it. You've got the "oh you don't know this yet? wait until it blows your mind ohoho" jackasses. Then recently, you've got the "this masterpiece have to be #1 on MAL or I won't be able to sleep at night".
