Fandom Stupidity
« on: May 27, 2010, 10:48:22 PM »
It is me or are fandoms gatting dumber? Jumping to conclusions, missing the point of things, etc.

Like for example, Many fanfreaks hated Cartoon Network's block, Miguzi(a Lighter and Softer Toonami aimed for a female audence, lasted from 2004 to 2006) for taking Toonami's place in the weekday lineups and moving Toonami to Saturdays. They consider Miguzi as Toonami's death and downfall, when that is NOT TRUE!

I bet you know some fanfreak idiocy much worse than mine.

Well I wanted to vent some hate towards a sports show airing on a network (mainly) for animated shows, but the real cause of the good Friday's death was, of course, Fried Dynamite. Whoever at Cartoon Network thought that those hicks were funny should be shot. -AC

Yes, fandom stupidity has been around long before we discovered the internets, remember some Star Wars-relaited fandumb incidents?

And Miguzi's purpose was to balance female and male audiences, it's why we have shows like Totally Spies and Powerpuff Girls on CN. Then again, YAH (Or, You Are Here) will be around until the next friday block.

Since the expansion of anime in the west, i'd say Toonami served it's purpose.  :P
Workshop/DA/YT/Photobucket なにかんがえてるの!?
So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

Slamball aired around the time Fried Dyna--Douchebags came on the air on CN. Quite frankly, a few crappy shows got canceled, like Brain Rush and Survive This! (what a frickin' Survivor rip-off).

Let's not forget that stuff happening to Touhou and almost started to happen to Rosenkreuzstilette thanks to a certain someone who previously lied to people about RKS that know absolutely NOTHING about the games.

Don't forget CN Real (or whatever that pile of whale [parasitic bomb] was called). I wanted to pour kerosene in my eyes and light them with a match after seeing the promos for it.

Learn to use the Double Post Merger function Mr.ZX.

..AND RKS was an unrelatively unknown game at that time, and Touhou was mostly a favorite. :/

And yes, CN Real was a mistake, however, AD (Adult Swim) was an enlightment, as we wouldn't have the Boondocks nor Saturday anime blocks and friday brit comedy blocks either.  :3

If you want to know how I felt about those retarded shows, then read this (WARNING: EXCESSIVE USE OF LANGUAGE and dA account is required): [link]

I already did learned how to use the Double Post Merger before you even posted your comment...

Yeah but that was the cause of why the English RKS fanbase sucks thanks to that. If the successor of Alfred Kahn didn't invented these believable lies and insult the RKS series while someone like TrickMasterMint and myself tried to get the game better attention for the English community, then the English RKS fanbase would be in a much better shape than it is now.

As the number of fans grows, so does the number of stupid fans, obviously.
Stupid fans tend to get a lot more attention when they voice their stupid opinions, as most everyone else (who are not stupid, be they fans or not) disagrees with them.

Well pray to God that a fanbase never gets someone as stupid as this Ice Fairy and makes up retarded lies about something, or else I will put out my *fart noise*in' gun and shot 'em. :3

I agree, because The Boondocks is one of my personal favorite shows (among others like Robot Chicken and Super Jail!) and as for the live-action my favorites are Mighty Boosh, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, and Delocated (can't wait for the new season in August). X3

It keeps all the little shits in one place.

You're just as bored as the rest of us and you wanted to kill your precious time here. :3

I'm suddenly reminded of how much I dislike the rest of the Touhou fandom. If only because of the ridiculous amount of fanon they tend to make.

Actually, it is partially true.  People who blame Miguzi itself are wrong.  The blame definitely goes to Cartoon Network though.  It's not Miguzi's fault that Totally Spies is downright unwatchable.

Fanboys of Broly, from Dragon Ball Z.

Yeah, most of them are probably like 12 years old, but still.
Gainax fanboys are the biggest hipsters all around.

Totally Spies is awesome, shut up.

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

You know, some would say you would regret saying those words. But, I'm not that kind of person.

What did you hate about Toonami?

Indeed you do.  :o

I miss Toonami, it was such an awesome block, Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, Gundam Wing, Yuyu Hakusho, etc. It was my daily fill of anime when I was younger.

Fanboys of Broly, from Dragon Ball Z.

Yeah, most of them are probably like 12 years old, but still.

Oh jeeze, those guys. >.<  I've heard of them, but luckily I haven't yet run into one.
