Greetings Readers 🙂
I am back with a brand new discussion as currently my activeness on my blog is still slipping, plus trying to finish a review for you all as well. Lita doesn’t like to rush, but none the less I have a interesting discussion topic inspired from a video I watched last week sometime:
A reining anime question:
How Much Anime Makes You A True Fan?
I can’t believe I am even discussing this with you all but it must be done, from my point of view. Akidearest is a female anime youtuber, I’ve been following for a while now, I like some of her videos but this video talking about what makes you a true anime fan? Sparked this blog post, First thing when I read the title of the video was…. oh boy there is a drawn out answer at the end of it.
I am just going to put it simple to you all: there is no way to define a answer for this question. As from my point of you when you watch your first anime for the first time, then after your curiosity is peaked, in my eyes automatically makes you fan. Others may have a different view on this as Aki addresses in the video, she states “If you have seen have 5 or 10 animes, you would be classed as a aspiring fan”. Okay so we are classing people, that was one comment I didn’t particularly agree with, to me where is the logic?. She did state some things I did agree with though, saying doesn’t matter how much anime you have seen you are no less a fan of anime. In the video she states if you have a anime list, and you have only seen 100 anime, YOU SHOULD ASSUME THAT PERSON KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT ANIME. This statement she mainly refers to big anime youtuber names in the community which is not necessarily true, far from it.
All these big anime youtubers like the Anime Man or Chibi reviews sure they may have seen over 300 anime’s. But doesn’t mean they know next to everything about, every single show they have ever watched. None of you anime fans out here should worry your pretty little heads over a stupid thing like this. It frustrates me that this question would even be blown out of proportion, and that there are people out there who are afraid to admit how much anime they have seen. A anime list, or how much you have seen does not define if your a true anime fan or not, it’s a lot of abalone.
This is taken from my anime list where I have seen 249 anime. so…. I AM CLASSED AS BRAIN WHIZ OVER ANIME. Wrong, It’s just a number means not a dam thing, makes me no brain-ac. I use anime list simply to keep track of what episode of anime I may be watching, so forgetful I can be or if I’ve heard or seen a anime I wish to check out at some point. It goes into my plan to watch list, again it helps me keep track. I don’t know where I’d be without this list as it also helps me reference for when I am blogging or making a video.
If your talking about anime, watching it, blogging about whatever it is to someone or the internet… You Are A Anime Fan. It would be as clear as the night sky to see, and you’ll twinkle joining all other fans. Lita is telling you don’t ever let anyone tell you your not a fan because you have only seen three anime, if they do tell them to shove it up there butt.
Feel free to watch the video above to see if you agree with anything Aki mentions, it’s a video I agree and disagree with. Ah feel like I got a lot of frustration out of me so PLEASEE ONE ALLL comment below your opinion of this question.
I would love to hear all your thoughts ! 😀
Side note: A review is on it’s way nearly done editing it all so stayed tuned ~!
I’ll see you all in the next post!
