I love how every once in a while I’ll hear someone spew bullshit about people who like Teen Titans Go aren’t “true” fans or “real” fans of Teen Titans.
1) Who made you supreme authority of the fandom? If you are in fact the supreme authority, I’m going to need to see the full list of criteria by which you dub a fan “real/true” or not. I also need to see an official document signed by every member of the fandom stating that you have the authority to speak for everyone and pass judgement.
2) I hope you realize that you are also insulting Scott Menville, Tara Strong, Hynden Walch, Khary Payton and Greg Cipes since they seem to enjoy being a part of this show. Because it’s impossible for them to like the new goofy Titans and still like the old Titans if they were true fans. They should be ashamed and you should tell them to feel bad about themselves for “ruining/slaughtering/destroying your childhood.” I bet that will make their day.
3) While this may be unrelated, I bet that even if the Titans were revamped with different voice actors and character designs…folks would still relentlessly complain and meticulously compare it to the 2003 series. This would lead to crying about “these aren’t the Titans I know and love”, “I want the old Titans back”, which translates to “I want an exact replica of the show you made 10 years ago because THESE are the true Titans and all change is automatically bad.”
4) Let all of us get a grip and let this pass. If you don’t like it, fine. You’re allowed to not like different interpretations of characters you’ve gotten attached too. (I will probably never accept comic book Starfire and I preferably would like Raven to always have grey skin with purple eyes/hair and Cyborg to say booyah) If the show tanks, it tanks and if it’s a hit, it’s a hit but don’t try to be an elitist.
5) Rant over.
