Sankaku Complex is pure trash. Look into blogs linked in Sakuga threads here and on the text board, which might be on the /co/ text board due to spam still.

Speaking of which, that whole "otaku" side of the western fanbase disgusts me. The types that constantly blog or talk about ecchi stuff and try as hard as possible to sound/act like Japanese otaku. Sankaku Complex is a great example of that. Some guy can translate 2ch/2chan posts and uses them as sources for shitty articles with often incorrect info. Also the parts of /a/ that think they're such awesome elitists because they hate things like Cowboy Bebop, "Shounenshit," and "nostalgiashit" but haven't watched more than a few pre-2000 shows and probably got into anime through 4chan and crossboarded to /a/ in the past 2-3 years.

Of course I also hate the generic weeaboo and fujoshi "mainstream" anime fans you see in shitty videos like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuJ8kYN_UrY

If I had to pick between these cringeworthy trashy people or /a/'s newfags who think they're elitist just because they're not like them... well I'm here I guess.

So is Vocaloid the one they complain about all the time but nobody supports instead of Justin Beiber or are they saying Vocaloid is good and better than Justin Beiber? I don't see the comparison or contrast they're trying to draw.
What the fuck does Nyancat have to do with cars? Bleach isn't even a weapon it's an anime it isn't even a sword in an abstract sense.
They display a rainbow of emotions when a character dies?
None of these comparisons/contrasts even match up properly. This has made me more confused than angry.

Ignoring all the autist, the stupid cosplayers, the amount of idiot casualfags and regular stupidity, it's really this issue concerning anime being seen as ''mature'' that just pisses me off.

It's mainly the reason why people praise so highly SnK even though it wasn't all that great.

LiA is one of the more consistent animeblogs out there. He suffers from the occasional bout of shittaste, but that's forgivable. He's also utterly sincere, he writes nothing with any trace of irony.

Cart driver and moe sucks are also good blogs. Atelier emily gives some excellent analysis, but doesn't do episode-by-episode.

/a/ is somewhat less retarded.
The real cancer on /a/ is the people dictating which thread to be made which mostly start with MAL tier post about how they felt about or show or seeing a show being shit or wanting common opinion or whatnot. The real problem being that no one really makes threads and only idiots determine the quality of discussion at the start.

But i don't think its really that important to "hide" your powerlevel, i think its just a bigger deal if you're a loud obnoxious faggot about it.
For example you can wear a tshirt with an anime design on it or something but you dont have to talk about anime all day to everyone all the time, thats when its bad.
Also having an anime wallpaper on your phone in public is okay, theres really no need to feel shame in it, youre not a greasy shittaste otaku teenager right?

I don't have any problems with subtle shirts or having an animu wallpaper in your phone.
Shirts only if they're subtle logos or parodies of brand logos/college shirts with anime references.

Having an actual anime character shirt? No, simply no. That shit is terrible.

If they're not subtle they just look horrid, no matter how you look. Most are terribly designed.

True, that's why you need to avoid divulging anything about you around people like those. Still, anime is just a medium, a very specialized one and customized for a specific audience, true, but still - only a medium.
I once a had a very engaging discussion with a guy who never watched anime about Papa no Iukoto and Kodomo no Jikan.

Short version: It's hard to say anything specific about this, seeing as there is no distinct criteria of when the person's decisions can be thought of as well-considered and deliberate. Taboo on pedophilia and age of consent is mostly a utilitarian measure, which prevents possible pregnancy, physical harm to child's body and warping of child's state of mind (yeah, it was a very roundabout discussion).

Most people are indifferent to them. It's just the kids who think weed will kill you and drinking beer and smoking cigarettes are equally as bad. They're just taught to think all people who wear tattoos are worse than them. While most of the time, people who have tattoos and browse 4chan are enourmous faggots. Normalfags who have tats are perfectly fine and tattoos themselves shouldn't be seen as some negative thing.

That aside, in order to contribute to the thread.

I don't even play VNs for the porn anymore. I fap to much worse things.

An acquaintance of mine picked up Aquapazza: Aquaplus Dream Match because he just likes fighting games, he didn't even know that the characters were from VNs. He was actually disgusted by the fact that all the characters had canonically had sex, and even more disgusted by the fact that I knew this.

I don't know about sport-fans being our ancestors.. but that is pretty accurate of /a/, and probably a few other interest boards as well.

It's the quantity of them not the quality, mostly. It's just the type of people that post nowadays. You can tell the way people post has changed. More people obviously will bring more results. More off topic threads. More this more that. It's whatever. Just means I spend less time on /a/ is all. There's always some two or three meta-threads on front page nowadays.

Hello beloved children!

Lastly I discovered a horrible filth which is simply disgusting and nefarious. I am talking about the so called "furries". In the picture you can see a mentally ill person dressing up as a furry which praises Satan as he has horns and a sinister eye. But besides being satanic, furries also present zoophilia in a proper light as they practice sexual intercourse with animals and force other people to dress up as animals so they could sexually harass and molest them. Ban anime as it turns people to monsters.
