First off I would like to say that I'm a big fan of Anime and have been so for quite some time now, so don't get the wrong idea. But is it just me or do you guys get annoyed by other Anime fans or to be more precise mainly those found in anime forums. I haven't been able to become an active member of any major anime forum (save for this one, probably because posters here are also people from off-topic) for any extended period of time due to threads like these: While the thread starts off fine, it gets progressively worse when they really start to vent. http://forum.anipike.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=462 They come across as a mixture of jackasses, elitiest snobs, and probably losers at life. Half of them sound like they have been traumitized by teenage angst and belong in the anime sleep over pic posted by Trishield . Hearing them whine just makes me cringe. I dunno, as a long time fan I have found that I just can't relate to a lot of other anime fans or share in their pain as being "outcasts"... or whatever role they choose to cast themselves in.. or maybe I just can't stand otakus? Anyone else feel the same way?
