I'm sorry in advance cause this is just my opinion and I want to vent to someone but I can't follow anything that's going on in TG anymore. It feels extremely messy, the details to the big plot/questions are little details and they're hidden but so many things happen and the focus change all the time. So now I can't even catch these details anymore because I'm trying to stay focused on the events. It just feel so all over the place. I was looking forward Amon talking to Kaneki so much. When I
I’m really sorry. I still really, REALLY, REALLY love tokyo ghoul, so unfortunately I won’t be any help in making you feel better. If anything, I’m actually considering taking a haitus from tumblr because I can’t seem to escape people’s negativity no matter how finely I pare down the people I follow or the content I choose to consume. So, if I’m being honest, I do not appreciate being the box for your venting, and I’m not going to post the 4 other messages you wrote because I don’t want to be responsible for making other people feel bad by publishing them.
Listen. My absolute favorite character in TG and the history of fiction is dead. He’s gone forever. But I made the effort to stick to it, went back and found new threads to follow, and found an endless amount of awesome things. There’s still a lot of incredibly complex, interesting characters, and a million questions still left to be asked. It’s all extremely exciting for me and tons of other people, and so I do not agree with anything you listed. I realize that it’s your prerogative to interpret the story that way or be disappointed, and that not everyone can just turn around and find something else to like, but it’s not fair that I can’t just come on here to share art or theories without someone butting in to tell me they don’t like it.
To me (and I could be wrong) it just sounds like people have an extremely rigid idea of how the story should go, or they don’t keep in mind that it’s an 18+ horror-mystery story, or they just don’t have the patience to wait for things to come together… and then take it out on others when things take a different turn. I mean, people get up in arms on spoiler night before the whole chapter is even out. That’s how volatile the fandom is on here.
So honestly, the only thing that’s ruining Tokyo Ghoul for me right now is tumblr. I try to keep an open mind and accept that not everyone’s going to like the way things are going, but opening this website is like your family making a snarky comment about the way you’re dressed every time you walk in the room. I need some fucking boundaries.
Like, I literally made this post the other day
and I hate hate hate hate HATE that it’s true. I know that things aren’t perfect in TG. Sometimes I get disappointed or wish things went different, too, but I can personally move past it. So please, if you don’t like it anymore, or are struggling to enjoy it, at least take a break from it, because it’s selfish to assume that someone else is responsible for handling your displeasure– especially when that person is clearly having a good time and not trying to cause problems. If you need to vent, write on your own blog. Don’t spread hate, and let the people who still enjoy it continue to enjoy it.
I genuinely apologize for taking it out on you, and I really wish I could be a shoulder to lean on, but I’ve really reached my limit. Your messages were the first thing I woke up to this morning, after almost of full week of watching a small chunk of the western fandom attack both Ishida (a ridiculously hard-working person, and a super nice dude to boot) and other fans, effectively making the rest of us miserable. I’ve had enough. I can’t hold everyone’s hands when they don’t like when something happens. I need space.
