Fandoms thread has been dead for over a year so here's a new one dedicated to the worst fandoms on the Internet (Steven Universe, Voltron, Star Wars, MLP, and older ones like Homestuck)

No. 282915

Nice idea for a thread OP.

How much worse do you anticipate fandom getting? I'm older so I remember when fandom was (mostly) self contained, it isn't just me that thinks fan behavior is getting worse right? Are we gonna get a needle cookie iincident in the West?

No. 282917

Not a tv show/movie fandom, but the absolute worst fandom I've encountered is Dan and Phil's fandom (youtubers). I used to watch them a long time ago, it felt like 95% of their fans are shippers, it's almost horrifying how much they're objectifying them. D&P feed into that mentality themselves, though.

No. 282919

not OP, but i think it can only get worse. i personally don't think fandoms getting larger is the cause for them getting worse (though naturally the more people there are in anything, the higher the chances of coming across "bad seeds" are). i really do think the semi-recent trend of making fandom your identity is to blame, as those types were typically ridiculed back when fandoms were more self contained. now that it's the norm, people get extremely sensitive and are prone to lashing out and acting irrationally when something bad is said about/happens in their fandom, since they take it as an attack on themselves.

No. 282920

Oh for me it is definitely the animation meme community. Young kids try to imitate their idols with their shitty and pr0ny art and it is so disturbing and annoying.

No. 282926

It's going to get worse as long as creators keep encouraging/acknowledging the diehard fans. Echo chambers have also made it easier for the crazies to cluster up and ignore anything they don't want to see or target others who disagree with their doctrines.

it's small but it's been going on for years. the black butler fandom is the worst. it's like a bizarre combo of fujo and shota.

No. 282987

i really need content creators to stop pandering to fans. of the fandoms the OP listed, it's been done in steven universe, voltron, and especially MLP. the results are always garbage and cringy, yet diehard fans who can't tell quality writing from a pile of shit will lap it up and throw their money at it without a second thought. it encourages their obsessively nerdy behavior AND tanks the quality of the show, movie, book, etc immensely.

anyways… a fandom in particular i dislike is for undertale. and no, i don't mean all the kids having fun with a cool game. i mean the adults that make millions of 3edgy5u AUs where everyone is fucking each other and being yandere or something. and of course i can't find it when i need it, but does anyone remember when people made sans vore audio posts on tumblr?

actually, does vore count as a fandom? going through the tag on tumblr gives me hives. the way they talk about it… "tinies" "teenies" "tummy" "gurgles" "rumblies"

are there more seasons after the circus one? stopped watching a looong time ago

i read the manga, it's absolute shit besides the art. animu shit in victorian england and endless fanservice. perfect combo to attract crazy fans

No. 283034

Not the anon you replied to, but there aren’t anymore seasons of the anime after the circus arc. The mangaka really messed up not having more seasons of the anime made after the circus arc though because the fandom is now pretty much dead. It’s been awhile since I’ve paid attention to the Black Butler fandom but from what I remember it was mostly composed of fujoshis arguing over shipping Sebastian and Ciel or if Grell should be referred to with female pronouns (kek). It’s kinda sad though because the mangaka’s art is actually well done even if it’s wasted on yaoi fanservice.

No. 283040

I had to stop watching MLP because the pandering got so bad. Makes me so sad because season 1 was so great.

No. 283087

I argued with someone once about whether or not shota had any appeal to fujos. Black Butler is a good example in the affirmative.

No. 283090

I really dislike the SU fandom, especially when they pretend that it contains lesbian representations when the non-human characters are technically not even females or some shit like that while bragging about accurate and realistic lgbt representation. The character design looks absolutely disgusting and some Jem and the Holograms bootleg. I can't stand the Voltron fandom when it comes to shipping wars because they're not even fun to watch for afar, but I got curious enough to check the show myself and it's an ok show. I think I would have loved it as a teen or a child but I just find it ok and a good way to pass time, not some soap opera masterpiece that the hardcore fans make it seem like.

>i really need content creators to stop pandering to fans.
It's more like they should exclusively pander to the intended audience and not the most vocal fans, and only if they want to. I think Voltron is aimed at kids, boys and girls who like action shows, but their stunt with gay Shiro and his ex-bf didn't seem like it wasn't made to pander to the intended audience but to the "representation matters!!1!" and fujoshi fans. Can you imagine if this happened with popular manga? We would have actual fujo pandering in the series published in the shonen jump magazine and things would be completely different in general.

I always managed to avoid the fandom while enjoying the manga and the anime to a lesser extent. The anime does have an OAV for the murder mystery arc and a movie for the Campania arc (which would have been perfect if not for the disgusting CGI for crowds but whatever). What should come next is the college arc but there's no news about that so it's basically a wait and see case.

The manga really looks like it's reaching it's conclusion because there has been some crazy revelations that were more or less planned and others that should be coming next such as who the fuck is undertaker, what was up with Claudia, who planned the attack on the manor, why and their connection with the cult but the current arc is super long for no good reason and the chapter are way shorter than they used to be so I can imagine some people are losing interest. I always forget the series exists until a friend tells me to check news scans.

It really depends on fujo and shows. Another example of that is Loveless, I never watched or read it but it was popular at some point.

No. 283091

>the mangaka’s art is actually well done even if it’s wasted on yaoi fanservice.
Eh, I don't think it's wasted at all. Pretty boys and pretty costumes is perfect use of her art because that's what she's good at. The story itself is not bad at all either, sometimes I forget because people make such a fuss about fujos and shota (god forbid girls ever get pandered too right…) but it's enjoyable outside that. It's got kind of an erotic tone to it with plenty of female characters and hetero interactions too.

No. 283097

If I were to decide on the worst fandom I've ever experienced, I think Steven Universe takes the cake because it's a shitty, ugly cartoon with an equally retarded creator and it doesn't deserve the attention and recognition it gets. Voltron is nearing its status as a legendary piece of shit community but unlike with Steven Universe I don't think their body count is over 0 yet.

However it's hard to say which is the worst. The current era social media Tumblr fandom bullshit started with Homestuck, continued with Sherlock, Dr. Who, Supernatural, Shingeki no Kyojin, Undertale, Steven Universe and Voltron. It's the same crowd that is attracted by all these franchises so basically it's just the same fandom over and over again. Bronies were creepy and disgusting but in all fairness they left it at that. I don't think they ever became violent or started aggressive witch hunts to get people doxxed and fired. It was the same with Hetalia and Sonic, their fans are/were autistic and gross but generally harmless.

Another candidate outside of cartoons or tv shows, the k-pop stans can be so fucking awful. I'm an oldfag k-pop listener and I dropped it almost completely after all the retarded BTS Armies took over the whole scene and I simply can't deal with their bullshit. Even worse is when they try to call their precious BTS's rival bands out with stupid ass accusations of racism and whatever, not because they actually think g-dragon is racist for having cornrows (which is a dumb statement in itself), but because they just want to kill all competition for their precious oppa jimin uwu. Good lord just fuck off with your underage sasaeng ass.

If you seriously think Kuroshitsuji fandom was/is the worst, I envy your naivety. It doesn't even exist anymore.

It's because the creators of these shows are approachable on social media and vulnerable to the viewers. They keep caving in under pressure from fans which leads to a clusterfuck of pandering and the show being cucked out of all credibility.

No. 283108

Voltron was initially made for kids. But since the non male child viewership was so high they started taking different approaches with the show. The toy lines have been cancelled and the merchandise is now aimed at an older audience (generally speaking). They are trying to appeal to both audiences at once, the former because Dreamworks the latter because money. Its a weird combo.

No. 283124

supernatural fandom is pretty horrible. I observe them a little bit over the years. Its so god damn cringey at cons when they ask questions about their ships and that Misha Collins dude completely enables it and eggs it on especially when its clear the other cast mates don't find it funny. I lolled when Jensen Ackles said "destiel" doesn't exist. I also get a creepy vibe from that Misha Guy. He's always making sexual jokes and he's brand of politics and performative wokeness actually disgusts me. Worse case of libtard I've ever seen.

People like this exist? I'm somewhat interested in crime community but always fuck off after people start coming up with cringeworthy over-thinking theories completely ignoring the occam's razor (i.e. "maybe the murdered prostitute was an undercover Russian agent and faked her death to cheat the reptilians!!!") so I always miss whacks like these.

She's actually privileged but good luck telling that to her woke fans. I used to like her but her fans kind of ruined it for me and I don't care about her more recent songs anyway.

Harry Potter gives me the same vibe as Star Wars, saying this as someone who was really into HP but never watched SW. The current fans seem to be really into it because of the nostalgia more than anything and still think they're the biggest nerds on Earth for liking any of these series even though they're some of the most mainstream pieces of media nowadays.

This is weird to me because I only know about poppy from various YouTubers that take the piss or 'expose' Poppy, and threads here, maybe it's because I'm nearly 30 but I've never run into an actual fan or even seen her music shared online in a positive way.

anyways I don't consider it a "fandom" but like with Harry Potter, adults who are obsessed with Disney are terrible people in general with their heads up their own asses. It's funny that most of them are very left/progressive, but become obsessed with things that are very white and have surface level morals. Vid related, it's one of the many brands of Lindsey Ellis-esque videos where someone tries to "deconstruct" a film made for children. It's like these people can't understand that a large corporation won't cater to your every whim (like with The Last Jedi controversy from fan) and is instead literally making movies they can sell in China for money. China is literally the reason why every other minority is represented in Disney movies but LGBT people.

It started out as a show in the 1960s about some grown ass man with huge teeth and his adventures that included the sextuplets.
It was then rebooted in 2015, and focused more on the sextuplets as adults. It was very popular when it came out because it was funny and the different personalities of the sextuplets were very endearing.

The danganronpa fandom is pretty bad desu, not gonna lie. V3 attracted a bunch of stupid, vapid people who only care about annoying meme characters like Ouma and try and act like the ending to V3 wasn’t the worst thing in video game existence. Also the over abundance of trans headcanons, people making every single character a strong independent gay/lesbian, and the fact that the V3 characters weren’t even good and people aren’t acting like they have immensely deep backstories.

The "chihiro is trans" discourse was ironically the most sexist fucking thing ever.
>Chihiro dresses up as a girl and hides his identity because he got ostracized for being an effeminate and physically weak male
>Chihiro asks Mondo to help him become stronger so he doesn't have to disguise himself as a girl anymore

No. 283625

Yeah you know how people say shit like "Beyonce didn't go to college/doesn't have a high school diploma and she's a millionaire so you don't need to pursue and education" all the time? It pisses me off because she was set for life as soon as she was born, she's an exception, not some example to give to teenage girls who don't want to do their homework.

I'm not even going to read the whole post because I haven't touched V3 yet but the fandom was always shit and I have no idea how a series so problematic with actual controversial content attracted SJWs so fast with the first game. I haven't finished SDR2 because I lost interest after the 3rd chapter so maybe I missed interesting drama within the fandom?

Same shit with Naoto from Persona 4. She hides her identity as a teenage girl for practical reasons (because she wasn't respected at work and deemed incompetent for being a girl) and if you complete her social link she says something like "I'm proud of being a woman" but I still see people saying that she's a transboy and that her character arc was transphobic and homophobic.

I think it also has to do with Kanji who has a crush on her, fans desperately want him to be gay because "representation matters!!1!" so him having a crush on a transboy would still make him gay to the fans instead of bi or ambiguous.

I love Chihiro and it pisses me off so much seeing people do hunch dirty like this. What is wrong with a guy being effeminate and this being a guy? He didn’t even enjoy cross dressing, unlike most of not all trans people, he felt forced into it. But yeah, can’t have a gender nonconfroming character, nope he must be a trans girl sugoii uwu
I would highly recommend finishing it, the 5th chapter has one of the best cases in all of the games. It also improves dramatically in the final chapter, Hajime gets a lot of character devolpment and it is quite emotional

It’s a huge pet peeve of mine how all HP fans I personally know act like they were totally bullied for liking HP in middle school :((( when I know for a fact that that’s complete bullshit. HP was so popular at my school that you’d get shit for not liking it. For years I pretended to like the books because any kid who didn’t was excluded and made fun of. Some of my favourite fantasy authors were accused of having copied Rowling despite their stories being published years, sometimes decades before hers, and people would mock me for reading these “copycats”. A few of the most popular kids in our year even tried to have it added to our school’s English literature curriculum alongside Dickens and Twain. And now these people are in their late twenties and acting like being HP fans made them unpopular nerdy underdogs? Fuck off. They might as well pretend they got bullied in elementary school for liking Disney movies.

Please note that I’m talking about people in my personal life with whom I grew up, not every HP fan ever. I have no problem believing that some kids did get bullied for it. Just not the people on my feed who act like they’re being so #brave and #nerdy for being fans of one of the most popular media franchises of all time.

No. 283636

I can believe that some HP fans are actually huge nerds, not the ones who just read the books or watched the movies and occasionally buy merchandises. More like the ones writing fanfics, lurking in communities online like kink memes and getting involved in shipping wars. They tend to forget that what's off-putting to normies is that they're nerds/otaku in general, not that they like HP by itself. I'm sure some kids were bullied for liking HP or reading in general at school though, you can literally be a target for any reason whatsoever anyway, but it's really exaggerated.

No. 283644

>I'm not attacking you but I'm really curious, where are you running into her fans?
I had two girls in my friend group who were huge Poppy stans. They were really annoying about how ~*aesthetic*~, ~*deep*~, and ~*artistic*~ she is, and both were very cringy, Tumblrina dd/lg types (except one turned out to also be racist).
Aside from that, I see them on Twitter, Reddit, etc and even occasionally on 4chan. They're either underagers with too much unsupervised internet, teen (or adult) women who just discovered the tags "kawaii", "pink" and "aesthetic" on Tumblr/IG, or grown men who are waifufags and/or think of Titanic Sinclair as an alt-right, redpilled /ourguy/ who implants anti-leftist messages in all of Poppy's videos.

No. 283722

there are poppy stans? why? her videos have the most basic social commentary you can think of, and considering that she actually is a part of the entertainment industry, the "messages" ring hollow. i'm of the opinion that someone being a hypocrite about something doesn't automatically render their message incorrect, but i can only see it as a flimsy attempt on poppy/sinclair's part at seeming deep and not like those OTHER celebrities to attract a different audience so people will still talk about her.

If it makes you feel better, they're basically not allowed to exist vocally anymore because apparently fiction = reality now and liking anything questionable means you support it in real life.

It has a lot of social commentary, yeah. Generally very sjw friendly too, more so than the ~possibly terf-y~ stuff in P4 they desperately tried to twist to fit their rhetoric. The only things that rustled their jimmies in P5 were the lack of a gay romance option and the homophobic jokes.

No. 284140

Wow. It was really interesting to read everyone's opinions so far.

I'm an oldfag and haven't been into fandoms since the late 90s/very early 2000s when things were a little less intense, but damn. A lot of these batshit crazy fandoms have made it to my radar over the years since I use twitter/tumblr/instagram (not for fandom though ofc), browse here + 4chan, but most alarmingly…a lot of the people I used to know where in them.

The majority of the people I've met at cons/through cosplay/online who are heavily in one or many of the fandoms listed so far seem to share severe social/mental issues that are eerily similar to one another. Now that I think about it, they all had such strong traits that could literally be generalized like the fandom's reputations.

They all dedicated so much emotion and money into a lot of these *~problematic~* fandoms listed here, specifically steven universe, voltron, yuri on ice, omotesando, superwholock (and all individal fandoms), danganronpa, south park, rupaul, my little pony, and also death note/homestuck/hetalia/naruto/sonic, and more. Almost all of them liked every single one at some point and followed them closely over the years.

I have been rethinking a few of those lingering friendships that I have been trying to maintain but I am struggling with the fact that I just don't like them as people, and probably never did. Low and behold, they have the same tendencies as the extreme cases listed here. Almost all of them treat others horribly, are extremely self centered, go on witchhunts, virtue signaling, shaming, overly aggressive and pick fights, bully, take advantage of others, e-beg online, victimize, physically and sexually abuse others (slapping, hitting, grabbing body parts), and are never, EVER wrong and will put anyone on blast who crosses them. The way most anons described these shitty fandoms act in general could be directly applied to most of the people I knew. What's wild is while some were from the same friend groups, others were completely separate friend groups yet they acted almost exactly the same.

This is actually extremely interesting. I don't want to derail more after blogging but has there ever been any research on harmful fandoms like these which become echochambers for really disturbing and damaging behaviors? I know that is rampant these days with non-fandom things too, but it's kind of amazing how it has spiraled out of control for a lot of fandoms and they are attacking creators, fans they disagree with, resorting to some dangerous behavior, etc. and there is little to no actual pushback, so they keep going further and further.

No. 284143

I think that nowadays people make fandoms their identity, which is quite sad. Maybe this explains why some people get really agressive when they are involved in controversies like shipping wars.

The Sailor Moon fandom had it to some extent too, it's a shame pockybox has been dead for years now but thankfully archive.org has some of their vintage drama articles archived. The most elaborate ones have to do with Usagi Kou who's still a crazy cunt and even has a thread in /snow/ even today. Highly recommending reading through these.

This is why pandering to Tumblrinas never pays off. They will never, ever be satisfied with anything and even one wrong move from the creators pisses them off so much they go on an excessive witch hunt.

In all honesty it's mostly the western fandom reading into it too much. It's very Japan-centric with its commentary and has to do with the very current issue of how late teens/young adults are treated in their society. I thought it was pretty well done to an extent but I guess it requires some familiarity with the subject matter. I often see Americans complaining and clearly not getting the point that something like Akechi's character arc is trying to drive home but people from countries with meritocratic societies with a noticeably lesser emphasis on individualism similar to Japan seem to relate to it better. inb4 reee shut up weeb ur just a retarded fujo reee

>If they're not being retarded about it like it's the only part of their identity, I don't see the problem.

Fujos have always been hated due to bad apples which exist in every fucking fandom but fujos always get singled out. I'm unironically sure it's because they're women attracted to something men can't enjoy. Nobody ever gives as much shit to the thirsty ass DDLG weeb girls lusting after lolis and idol girls. But these days it's because of the current year wokeness shit, fujos are seen as "fetishizing homosexuals" which is the dumbest fucking thing in a while as many fudanshis enjoy the genre as well and a lot of fujoshis are lesbians/bisexuals themselves. Ironically the people calling them out are usually fakeboys and transmen who just want to be better than "le other girls" like >>285601 mentioned.

>wouldn't putting "i like BL" in a profile suffice?
That would suffice yes, but when there's a convenient label, people will use it. In context of Japanese fandom there's also the history of it being a reclaimed word. Similarly I'm probably not wrong in guessing there will now be a number of people in English fandom using it as a "fuck you" to people trying to police them.

Chances are they're doing it on a fandom centric tumblr or profile, of course it's going to be a significant part of their identity there.

Honestly if you're annoyed with the label fujo but ok with 'I like BL', you're just splitting hairs and reaching for things to pick on. I call myself a fujo (in my head since I don't use tumblr or anything) because I am one, because I think it's kind of funny and self deprecating, because I DON'T like BL. I like m/m shipping in various media, but not the BL genre of manga.

No. 285727

> i get men hating them
I could type an essay on this. It's because mlm fakebois want to seem like men so they say they hate fujoshi for fetishizing them so it's related. Actual gay men into nerd shit don't care nearly as much. Funny how these fakebois are usually the ones who are gross and fetishising gay and bi men. So it's killing two birds with one stone; these nerds get to look more manly AND more oppressed at once.

They also don't know the real definition of fujoshi and why it's a pun with the kanji for "rotten girl". They think "rotten" is a reference to fujoshi being secretly homophobes who watch gay porn on a regular basis when it's a reference to women being into porn and sexy men being rotten in general. It's the same with when teenage girls are saying they're sinning for shipping slash and reading BL. The ones who hate fujoshi are so retarded they don't understand that it's a reference to the fact that teenage girls are expected or asked to be pure and innocent even though these teenage girls are fantasizing about hot guys on the internet and writing fucked up porn on ao3 (straight or gay for that matter). It's so obvious, and yet you still have idiots who think fujoshi as a whole want gay men to have gay sex just for them and then rot in hell for their sins. So from that angle it's the typical "teenage girls are laughable" justification.

as in it's based on the original definition but people overuse it and have a specific stereotype in mind.

like i doubt most farmers care if you're a reasonable non-snowflake young lady who happens to like your porn gay, when they throw around the word fujo they're talking about larping fakebois who wanted to BE the uke and go on grindr to find seme.

just like if you're techincally NEET because you can't afford college and you're between jobs and you have some savings or something, probably no one cares, but when people throw around NEET they're picturing a shutin with no ambition and no skills

Not everyone is a self-hating teenage girl who chickens out the minute they're "outed" as a fujo, this isn't tumblr you know.

I rarely use the term fujoshi these days because of how it’s been distorted and is easily misused even if you don’t mean to and tend to refer to the obnoxious ones specifically as fujoshits lol. I see nothing wrong with being a fujo as long as you’re not obnoxious about it- like another anon said, a reasonable, non-snowflake-y young woman who happens to enjoy porn of the gay variety.

Also, I know a lot of fakebois attack fujos but most of the ones I’ve seen are shamelessly into fujo stuff. I’d say it’s an equally mixed bag.

Is Rose even chubby though? She's a Quartz, and Quartzes are muscular soldiers (see Jasper and the normal sized Amethysts). In the episode where she was wearing the Quartz gear she looked pretty buff rather than chub/fat, so it's possible that the fandom got up in arms for nothing

I'm fucking amazed that this is the first time someone brought up Homestuck in this thread. Back in the day, that fandom was a cringe machine.

There are a lot of people who conjecture that the whole "forced diversity" headcanons started there because the guy who wrote it made the mistake of saying that the race of the characters was up to interpretation. Hence all the fanart where Dave is a fat black kid with Macklemore hair. I honestly don't recall seeing the race-headcanon-drama before social justice and Homestuck collided in 2012 or so. But yeah we basically have Homestuck to thank for all the "this white character is black now I don't make the rules uwu" crap that pervades fandoms like a cancer.

Then there was all the other drama, most of which pertained to how Homestuck cosplayers acted like wild chimps at cons. By the time the body paint, horn, and bucket drama was dealt with in the community, the damage to the comic's reputation had been done.

This is also to say nothing of how the guy who wrote it basically pissed away two million bucks getting into legal trouble and trying to fulfill expensive Kickstarter reward tiers, then treated the employees on the video game like shit. I'm fucking amazed that the game project survived after all that.

That said, now that the comic is no longer "popular", the now relatively small fanbase is pretty pleasant. I was shocked by the lack of drama in the wake of the new dating sim.

One thing I can say is that both sides really love the girls in their own way. With the girls they are usually typing in all caps screaming for their fav.

There is nothing in the actual show that supports it. However those involved in making the show are into shipping fanart, either because they sincerely want that shit or because they want to pander to shippers for more popularity.

Didn't really notice any pandering, but season two was slow. The vampire politics could have been done in half as many episodes, and most of the vampires there were just window dressing, with no actual lines. A big part of that, I think, is because they saved all the budget for episode seven, which did look amazing. Seven and eight were good episodes, but one through six were a bit of a slog.
I agree. That doesn't change the fact that those female dominated fandoms can indeed be cancerous though.
Yeah the fandom is sperging hard, and the saltiest of them are shilling "stan She-Ra" everywhere.

People talk about the villains, and to a lesser extent, the mechs on /co/. But /co/ threads are a mixed bag. Sometimes they can be good and have surprisingly decent plot related conversations, and other times it's just the same shipping outrage you see on social media.

People on Tumblr will talk about the villains and plot too, but good luck finding them in the abyss that is the main Voltron tag. But you are right, a large portion of the fandom only cares about shipping. As someone who actually likes the show for the action, plot, and worldbuilding, as flawed as those things may be, I just surround myself with people like the show for the same reasons I do. They generally tend to like the villains too.
