Everybody rages against international anime otaku.
Every other phrase they uttered was some stupid Internet meme like “It’s a trap!” which they wouldn’t even use in context. One of the members – a guy with a really shrill voice who would always shout when he spoke – would tell what I assumed was supposed to be a joke, and when nobody responded, he would scream “Why doesn’t anyone get my references?!”
Boku no Bible Toads, Go To Anime Club, They Said
These shows aren’t made for you–they’re made for Japanese people. As such, shows just may be steeped in varying degrees of cultural quirks you may not understand . . . The issue here is that people are scared of what they don’t understand. Even offended. This isn’t the show’s fault–it’s yours.
It really bothers me too when in artist alleys, some artists instead of displaying the work they are passionate about, they display/sell shit to pander to otaku. I suppose they gotta make money but the fact that they pander to such retarded hobbies is what bothers me.

So that doesn’t surprise me.
It’s a self-indulgent, hedonistic fandom, no matter how much we try to be intellectuals about it.

What gets me every time is how new it inevitably seems to the person raging.
