i thought only anime boys did this

wanna one as types of boyfriends

yoon jisung:

the walking meme. everything he does is fucking hilarious. you literally have 2000 photos of him on your phone which could be edited into potential memes. there’s never a sad/boring day in your life. he’s actually always super excited about everything and you always sometimes question his mental age but you still think it’s really cute. always makes stupid puns and jokes to make you laugh (that sometimes even results to self degradation). all that makes him happy is seeing you smile, so he makes that his daily goal. likes to send you weird pictures of him using different filters on snapchat that you obviously screenshot. he’s super funny and your whole family loves him, especially the kids. “auntie when are you getting married to uncle jisung?” “soon” “um jisung wtf stop lying to the kids” “i never said i was lying”

ha sungwoon:

the tea sipper. he has the dirt on everyone, and i mean everyone. knows what’s going on in your life, your neighbor’s life, and your second cousin’s uncle’s grandfather’s life. your dates consist of gossiping with the neighborhood aunties every week at the book club he organized. wants to know how your day is and knows you so well that he can tell when your feeling down. sings to make you feel better, and if that doesn’t make you smile, he’ll probably pull out the big guns and start dancing to girl’s day something. doesn’t mind embarrassing himself if it makes you happy :’). doesn’t like it when you call him cute bc he’s “manly not cute”. tries to fight other people when they talk shit about you. talks a lot!!! like when you’re trying to catch some z’s, all he does is talk about how your neighbor’s husband is cheating on her with her sister??? “omg don’t tell anyone but jisoo’s husband is cheating on her with her own sister” “wtf how do you know?? did you stalk her husband again??” “no way, i was throwing away the trash and i saw them?? coincidentally??”

hwang minhyun:

the perfectionist. a little ocd and always needs everything to be super clean and organized. he told you that he had perfect attendance in school and always had straight a’s. his skin is perfect, his visuals are perfect, and his voice is perfect. sometimes you feel like he’s too good for you, but then you remember how much of an awkward loser he is in real life. texts you the most romantic things, but can’t say it in person to you. you like to tease him a lot for being an awkward antisocial person. very easily embarrassed person. not a big pda person. blushes a lot. doesn’t know how to convey his feelings into words or actions, but it’s okay bc you know he’s trying hard. he looks like a cold tsundere but sike he’s a soft mochi on the inside. smiles a lot more now bc “you make me happy i guess”. 

ong seongwoo:

the prankster. he loves messing around with you and pissing you off. one time he put blue dye into your body wash and you came out of the shower looking like a smurf. you guys end up having prank wars and once you even super glued his feet into his shoes. when he’s not thinking of ingenious plans to prank you, he’s actually a really sweet boyfriend. sometimes he takes you out on spontaneous dates to that fancy restaurant across town to make up an excuse to see you wear a beautiful dress. but he loves taking you on midnight rides. like he’ll drive you in silence as you enjoy the night sky and talk to you about random things and let you rant about your inner thoughts. “stop staring at me ong!! focus on the road” “you’re just too beautiful. you distracted me”

kim jaehwan:

the musician. he confessed to you in broad daylight while playing the guitar and singing a song written for you. you guys were sitting on a bench in the city and he randomly whips out his guitar and starts singing. a crowd gathers around you eventually, and they cheer when you accept his confession. he likes to write songs in the middle of the night, so you’ll probably wake up at 3 AM and hear him playing random chords on the piano and writing lyrics in the dark. he writes songs thinking about you and likes to sing to you when you have trouble sleeping. also super extra!! likes to boast about things that he can’t do like karate and playing soccer. he told you that he used to play soccer in middle school, but when you actually took him out to play he said “yeah i played soccer. i played fifa” “ugh i hate you so much right now”

kang daniel:

the gamer. he’s a huge fucking loser, and he loves playing league and overwatch and basically every game ever. tried to teach you how to play league once but you never understood anything, so he ended up carrying the team and winning. spends 95% of his time indoors, but he also likes to cuddle with you when he’s gaming. makes you sit on his lap while he wraps his arms around you and rests his chin on your head when he plays. likes taking you to comicon or any other nerdy convention. but it’s endearing to see him so excited about cosplayers. “cosplay with me next year” “lol how about a no”

park jihoon:

the prince. on top of his handsome looks and dancing skills, he was also born with a silver spoon in his mouth. buys you everything you’ve ever wanted and then some. but you’re not interested in materialism ok yes you are but you’re more interested in him. so he doesn’t really understand love?? like he’s always been loved by his parents but he tries his hardest to convey his feelings for you without extravagant gifts. like this is the first time someone told him that they didn’t want a new car and he doesn’t understand why you don’t want a mercedes benz but it’s your loss?? he takes you to nice dates at super expensive high end restaurants while you assure him that getting a take-away pizza is always fine too. wears gucci and givenchy and saint laurent and tries to buy you clothes from there too but one dress is worth more than your life??? he likes to sleep on your shoulder while you stroke his hair. really cute relationship full of $$$. if you need a sugar daddy you know who to call. “you want a new car?” “wtf no i want a new boyfriend” “>:((((”  

park woojin:

the shy turned wild one. yeah he was really shy when you first met but now he wildin. you tried taking him to a family party once but he was getting too into his dancing and ended up grinding the floor. what happened to the shy bean that couldn’t look you in the eye?? sometimes he’s still really shy around people he just met, and he kind of attaches himself to you. but dancing really makes him let everything go, and he tries to teach you choreographies to your favorite songs. taught you how to dance to red velvet and exo and rap to okey dokey. dates consists of dance lessons and chilling at home watching smtm together. bet milk tea on who’s going to make it to the finals. “yo it’s gonna be nucksal” “oh hell no i’m betting on hangzoo” “wow it’s only bc you like zico & dean more smh i thought you loved me”

bae jinyoung:

the nerd that turned hot. you known him since elementary school but boy did he glow up in high school. the last thing you remember was him being that smart nerd that never talked, but now he has a whole army of girls chasing after him. outside appearance may have changed but he’s still a nerd. dates consists of chilling at home and watching the latest episode of the anime y’all like while cuddling. takes you to animecon where you cringe at the weebs but where he enjoys every moment of it. likes taking you to manga and anime stores. dreams of going to japan with you. also likes to buy you cute couple charms for your phone. “i bought you the touka charm bc you’re the touka to my kaneki” “you’re such a fucking weeb lmao but sasaki is better”

lee daehwi:

the foreign swagger. yeah he lived in america for 4 years, that’s why he’s here man. just kidding, he’s a super adorable boyfriend that sometimes mixes up his languages when he’s flustered. super caring and always frets over you. nags you a lot when you get sick. “i told you not to go outside without a jacket!” but really good music tastes. makes different spotify playlists for you to listen to when you’re sad or tryna to get turnt. likes shopping dates!! he is your personal fashion designer and buys cute dresses when he thinks you look cute in them. “i thought this color suited you really well, so i bought it!” “um but it says it’s $300″ “oops?”

lai guanlin:

the athlete. he likes every sport but he’s super obsessed with basketball dude. like he’ll take you out to the nearest basketball court to shoot with him even if you can’t make a shot for your life. dw he’ll teach you the proper shooting form and how to dribble. you’ll end up having lots of cute basketball dates and afterward he’ll probably take you out for ice cream. likes to rest his head in your lap as he practices his shooting form laying down. lots of after-practice cuddles. “ew guanlin you’re so sweaty. get off of me” “no i like staying with you like this”


Alphonse Elric: Say, Brother, have you found the answer to “One is all, all is one”? I’ve been thinking about it all this time, but I only have a vague idea about it.
Edward Elric: I’m not sure about this, but remember when I was weak from hunger, and ate those ants?
Alphonse Elric: You did?
Edward Elric: Mm-hmm, I ate them, They were sour as hell, too. But then, I thought, if I didn’t eat them, and died, I’d be eaten by ants, or the foxes. I’d go back to the earth, and become grass. The rabbits would eat that.
Alphonse Elric: The food chain, right?
Edward Elric: Yeah. And it’s not just that. Long ago, this whole island may have been at the bottom of the sea. In tens of thousands of years, it might be the peak of a mountain.
Alphonse Elric: All things are connected?
Edward Elric: Everything is in the middle of a great, unseen flow. I don’t know if you’d call it the universe, or the world, or whatever. Looking at it as this huge thing. Al, you and I are like ants. One small part within the flow. Nothing more than one fraction of the whole. But putting all those small “ones” together allows the “all” to exist…

Why do I dislike Tales of Zestiria the X?

Recently I’ve been asked one question numerous times: “Why do you think the anime is shit? You only hate it because it doesn’t focus on SorMik, right?”

Now guys, I think it’s vital for me to answer this. Because let’s face it, we will never see face to face if we don’t discuss the matter. And look, here I am, typing this out because I feel this is important. So if you’re curious and want to understand why a lot of us dislike the anime then please bear with me because this will be long (6 pages in Word, 6!)

To make this a little bit easier for me, I’ll assume that you haven’t played the game or watched its walkthrough yet and that you like the anime. But of course if you did either of them it’s good, bc at least you’ll know what I am talking about.

And so, I shall do a character analysis in this post, comparing the game and anime selves to each other while I name some other issues as well. I won’t list all the inconsistency and plot holes the anime has for I’d be here even after my death.

I’m going to try to make you guys understand that while the SorMik fandom is not happy, there are more pressing issues with the anime than that.

“Class Clown” Part 2

Part 1 Here

I guess its a date. The words echo around your head all day. You don’t know why you’re so affected by him. You’ve been consistently angry with him since sophomore year when you were tutoring him and he made a moaning sound every time you turned the page, and everybody teased and said you had a book fetish for months. Yet the fact that somebody. Anybody. Wanted to go on a date with you? Maybe it wasn’t Jin, but it was the best you could do until then. Maybe he could help you with Jin? But Jin aside, this was a date. Your first date. Or was this just another one of his little games…?

As school ended, V ran over to you as you walked out the front doors. 

“Ready to study?” V grins and links arms with you. You sigh and slip your arm away from his. In the sunlight as you look up at him, the skin under his right eye looks darker now, and more swollen. You’re tempted to ask about it, but his cheery deep voice interrupts your thoughts. “So we’re studying English right?” V grins skipping as you two walk.

“Yeah, how bad are you failing?” You smile watching as he skips and hops over the cracks in the sidewalk like a little kid.

“How bad is a 58?” V grins winking and laughs jumping in a puddle, splashing you. You yelp and drop your books on the concrete.

 “V!” You exclaim and look down at your uniform which is now drenched. You wipe under your eyes to make sure your makeup isn’t running, it isn’t. You look at your books and make sure they’re dry, they are. The only things that got drenched were you and him. You look up at the boy as you pick up your books. He stands in the puddle with his head tilted and a thoughtful look on his face. “W-what?!” You blush as he stares at you, scrutinizing. 

 “You, Y/N.” V says, as though it’s obvious. He sticks his hands in his pockets and keeps walking like nothing happened. You jog and catch up with him. “What?!!!” You whine.

Personally, when it comes to a Yandere-kun, I’m of the school of thought who favors the idea of having our male yandere be exactly like Yandere-chan in personality. Lacking in emotions and will to live until he meets senpai.

There are plenty of sadist boys in anime who are possessive and sadistic over someone and mostly just like to make a game out of it, but I can only recall a few examples of an anime boy being like how Yandere-chan is, where the obsession is an absolute need without control, instead of a game he chooses to play so he can feel some meaning. If we ever did get a Yandere-kun, I would want him to be the type of Yandere that Ayano is, instead of just a regular sadist.

001 | send me a ship and I will tell you:

  • when I started shipping it if I did: Oh boy, can you believe that i wasn’t shipping these two at first? I could only see them as friends in the show and refused to read romantic fics about them. But alas, it took tumblr and a few fanarts of this ship to give me a ticket straight to killugon hell.
  • my thoughts: No matter what their relationship is, platonic or not, they are a special duo that cannot be set apart. I love them both with all my heart and i can’t imagine one without the other. (needless to say the anime ending broke me). I find them pure and adorable, sharing a relationship and partnership i sometimes envy. They are great for each other and their development as people and as friends is genuine and hard to not love.
  • What makes me happy about them: Their entire bond. They complete each other perfectly and can expose each other’s flaws and strengths. Also, they are adorable.
  • What makes me sad about them: The entire CA arc…kinda. Actually, the fact that each has their own traumas but they seem to forget or ignore them without realising that they need to comfort them.
  • things done in fanfic that annoys me: Anything close to abusing relationship. 
  • things I look for in fanfic: Fluff, story, drama, cuteness overload, good writting of their characters
  • Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other:.. lol None!
  • My happily ever after for them: They get back to each other, sit down, talk about their insecurities and everything that’s fucking them up, making up and stay forever next to each other. 
  • who is the big spoon/little spoon: Gon is the big spoon while Killua the little spoon. 
  • what is their favorite non-sexual activity: exploring and hiking? anything extreme really.

Ask me about ships and peeps ~:D

Oh no… my nerd is showing. >///<

I mentioned before that I liked special ears in general, and that includes animal ears. And I LOVE cats so…

This is my OC cat boy that every anime fan girl has at one point. His name is Kai and he is normally just a black cat. But This is his more human form that is more fun for me to draw so I only drew him like this most of the time. 

Also I never did finish coloring in his hair, but I thought it looked okay as is. 

Hot Topic!AU (Klance) - Date

(submitted by the lovely: @mayoffnaise)

I had the worst thought while writing this and it was “What if Keith actually said rawr means I love you in dinosaur” Also I had to look up emo looking anime characters for this.

“So is it a yes, or a no?” Keith pushed the tickets across the counter, towards the other boy.

“You like me!” Lance did a weird little shimmy with his shoulders that could only be described as ‘a completely Lance thing to do’.

“I,” Keith inhaled deeply through his nose, taking a moment to collect himself. “I have been very clear about the fact that I like you. We have been dating for two weeks.”

Lance leaned across the counter. If he had been any other customer, Keith would have punched him. Pausing dramatically, Lance gave the most awkward wink that Keith had ever received in his life. “So you admit you like me.”

“Okay, you caught me, I like you.” Keith rolled his eyes. This boy would be the death of him.

“Well in that case…” Lance closed the gap between them and pecked him on the cheek. “I’ll be at that concert.”

To say Keith was embarrassed by PDA was the understatement of the century. You could almost see his blush underneath the layers of white foundation. Shiro’s imminent comments always made it worse, validating it was in fact a public display of affection.

“I know it’s a slow day, but I’m still here guys.” Shiro folded a Blink-182 shirt, throwing it into the pile with the rest of them. There it was. Now the blush was definitely visible. It wasn’t fair. Keith knew Lance thrived on getting a rise out of him. Asshole.

After the redness in his face subdued, Keith directed his attention back to Lance. “Just warning you. The people at the concert are like the people here, but…” He shifted his gaze to a man browsing the hoodies heavily tattooed, brightly colored hair, clad in mostly leather, and studs, “More.” He emphasized the last word.

“No problemo.” Lance pocketed his ticket. “I’ve got this in the bag,” He holds up a plastic shopping bag. Keith can’t make out the text before it’s out of sight again. “Literally.”

“How?” Keith pointed at the item in question. “How did you even know I was going to invite you?”

“Uh. It’s a figure of speech.” Lance can’t help but smile at Keith’s inability to understand the joke.

“But then why would you say literally?” He placed his hands on his hips, like he was scolding a child.

“Don’t worry about it, just trust me.” He ended their conversation finger guns, and left without making any more annoying comments, not even one passing comment about the dumb Suicide Squad toys they had set up near the front of the store.

Maybe Pidge and Hunk’s lectures had finally gotten to him.

Whatever Pidge and Hunk were telling Lance, it was not working. When Keith had told Lance about the type of people at these concerts he had hoped it would prompt Lance to dress normally. Maybe just jeans and a black t-shirt instead of his usual anime attire, but this? Nothing could have prepared Keith for this. “What the fuck are you wearing?”

Even with Keith’s reaction, Lance’s posing did not falter. Actually, it only made it more over the top. Lance was dressed head to toe in the most ridiculous get up he had ever seen. A black and white jacket with coat tails that were too long to be functional, and a skirt, maybe, with the same color pattern. That was all bad in itself, but the makeup and hair was what really took the cake. White face makeup with two black streaks extending from his eyes to his chin. The wig was closer in length to Keith’s own hair and hung right over Lance’s shoulders. “Like it?” He winked hitting another pose.

“Wha- why are you wearing that?” Keith sputters. He circles Lance taking in all the details of this costume. It was well made so either Lance had a lot of time on his hands, or a lot of money to spend.

“I didn’t think you’d want to hear my explanation, but since you asked.” Lance rested against the side of the car. “I wanted to fit the ‘emo’ aesthetic, and because I’m far from emo, and don’t have any normal clothes that’ll for in, I could just use cosplay.” Lance’s annoyingly bright smile only brightened at Keith’s red cheeked reaction to being called emo. “I would have went with L, but that seemed too simple, and then my next thought was Sasuke, but that’s kind of your thing, so I settled on Ulquiorra.” He finished, triumphantly, with his hands on his hips.

Keith dead panned. “We both know that’s not what I was asking.” He didn’t understand half of the things Lance said, and didn’t care to, but at this point they were already running late, and he was sure Lance wouldn’t be the weirdest looking person there. “Let’s just go.” He offered, opening up the passenger side door of his crappy car for Lance, and rounded the vehicle to slide in to the drivers side.

Lance hopped into his seat, and slammed the old car’s door shut. “I could ask you the same question.” He stated, looking forward as the other boy drove out of the lot.

“Oh yeah?” Keith raised an eyebrow, gaze remaining on the road. He was just in his usual attire, which made him a little nervous to ask.

“Yeah.” He kicked his feet up on the dashboard, slumping back into his seat. “You can’t just wear a crop top and not warn me, you’re too cute in them.”

“Shut up.” The words lacked venom, and came out more shaky than aggressive. Lance couldn’t help but peek over to see Keith’s face as red as the streaks in his hair.

Looking around, he recognized a few faces, he also realized, while Lance was very overdressed for the occasion, he certainly didn’t look the craziest there.

The crowd wasn’t huge. Keith prided himself in his very underground taste in music, despite Lance’s accusations that he only listened to My Chemical Romance. The band wasn’t on yet, but from the noise the hundred or so people made, you would think the band had already been playing for an hour.

“Yo, Kogane.” The two boys were approached by a man who pretty much fit every stereotype of what a stoner should look like. Skinny, long hair, baggy clothes, dead eyes. Rolo, great. Even though Keith appreciated the thought that went Lance’s outfit, after seeing it he’d kinda hoped he wouldn’t run into anyone he knew. “Who’s the friend?” He shouted over the crowd.

“Oh, um, hey Rolo… This is Lance.” He said, gesturing to the boy next to him. Lance gave his signature dazzling smile and mock salute, and Rolo smiled lazily, entertained by his energy.

“You look pretty sick, dude.” Rolo leaned in closer to get a better look at Lance’s make up. “You do that yourself?” Keith couldn’t believe what he was hearing. To think he had been so worried. The two carried out their conversation about proper concert attire until for several more minutes until Lance squeezed his shoulder and brought him back to reality.

“Did ya hear that?” Lance boasted. “Your friends think I’m cool.”

Keith blinked, he hadn’t even noticed Nyma joined the conversation, but she and Rolo were such close friends he should have expected they were both here.

“That outfit is so cool.” She gushed, feeling the fabric. “Where did you get this?”

“I made it.” Lance smiled smugly. Keith didn’t interject, Lance’s smile was too genuinely happy.

A few more minutes of conversing over Lance’s 'super cool’ outfit passed by quickly. “Can you believe Keith didn’t want me to wear this? He must’ve afraid I’d look too good and everyone here would hit on me.” The whole group laughed loud enough to be heard through the audience.

“I still can’t believe you wore an anime costume to that concert.” Keith chuckled incredulously, pulling into an empty spot near the apartment building.

“I can’t believe you still don’t think it’s cool. I think you’re just jealous your friends liked me so much.” Lance leaned across his seat, challenging Keith to a kiss.

“No way.” He pushed the other boy’s face away. “Not with all that make up on.” He had only momentarily touched Lance’s skin, but his hand was already caked in white powder.

“Why don’t you come in and I’ll clean up, just for you.”

“Well, I’m usually not the kind of guy to kiss on the fourth date, but you are dressed impeccably.” Keith replies sarcastically, tugging at Lance’s jacket.

Lance laughs.


“You like me!”

“Yeah, yeah I do.”


Abysmal Hatred & My Concerns

While January the 28th may be just like any other day of the year, it also just so happens to be the day that Crunchyroll’s 2016 Anime of the Year award winner is revealed. Now without wasting your time, I’m just to get this out of the way immediately.

Yuri On Ice will win Crunchyroll’s Anime of the Year award.

Not, if. Not, maybe. It will. This is for certain. It is a solid fact and there is no probability about it at all.

Now, I will get to this in a moment, but for now, I just want to get some more important things out of the way first.

So, let’s start, shall we?

Why Yuri On Ice Won Everything It Was Nominated For:

Yuri On Ice won every single category that it was nominated for in Crunchyroll’s 2016 poll by a staggering amount of votes. 

But how?” 

Some people have been asking this for a few weeks, so I thought it was about time for a specific answer.

-Reason One:

The sheer amount of people who voted for Yuri On Ice was unmatched and wouldn’t have rivaled any other show due to its fame.

Since the vote was solely based on popularity, Yuri On Ice won its nominated categories in a landslide. It has also become the most profitable show since SNK, reaching in numbers of about 51,000 copies sold within its first week of sales and then another week later growing to about 63,000 copies total. That’s about 12,000 sales in growth within a week and it’s absolutely amazing.

Now, because of those numbers, this means that a fraction of the viewers would have voted for the show, increasing its chances of winning. Not to mention how much the fandom promoted the poll and told fans to vote, which also boosted the number of individuals voting.

A simple estimation would suggest that around 22,000 - 25,000 people voted for Yuri On Ice in each respective category, while other shows like MOB Psycho and Erased each received around 1,500 - 2,000 votes (granted, this estimation can change greatly depending on the category.) Thus, leading to the show’s domination.

-Reason Two:

Yuri On Ice brought new fans into the anime community. 

A large percentage of the show’s fans were never a part of the anime community to begin with. For many, this was their first anime and it introduced them into a whole new world of TV and entertainment. 

When it came time to vote, these kinds of inexperienced anime fans went and voted for the show that they critically thought was more deserving and picked Yuri On Ice. 

For lack of a better term, it was inexperience paired with personal preference and should not be insulted. They chose to try a new form of entertainment and are still learning about it and they’ll eventually grow into it.

-Reason Three:

The fans just didn’t watch the other shows that Yuri On Ice was nominated against.

2016 was a rather weak year for anime. There obviously were some really good shows this year, such as Erased, MOB Psycho 100, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable, Yuri On Ice, and a few others. 

Though, it goes without saying, that there were more bad shows than good, and there were also not very many shows coming out in 2016 either. 

Not only that, but many longtime anime fans had begun to distance themselves from anime as a whole and stopped watching it. Yuri On Ice seemed to bring many people back to anime altogether, giving them a new hope for new shows in the future. 

So, when the voting began, these people voted for Yuri On Ice, because they hadn’t bothered to watch any of the other shows that were out at the time.

-Reason Four:

It was really well received, people really, really liked it, and it was actually really good. (This reason doesn’t really need an explanation, so I’ll move on.)

My Opinion on the Awards Outcome:

(This is my own personal opinion and has really nothing to do with my main points. Skip ahead if you don’t want to listen to what I have to say about this.)

-Best Animation:

There’s been a lot of pathetic arguing about this subject and it’s quite sad. 

I absolutely do believe that MOB Psycho 100 definitely had far better animation than any other show out this year. Its style is diverse, experimental, colorful, and incredibly well done. It is an animation masterpiece and it definitely deserved the award in my opinion. 

Though, when I say that MOB has better animation than Yuri On Ice, I don’t mean that Yuri On Ice’s animation is terrible, because it’s not. No, it’s much more complicated than that when you’re looking at the show from a critical standpoint.

In fact, one of Yuri On Ice’s greatest flaws is their inconsistent animation. The show’s animation either looks so beautiful that it takes your breath away while simultaneously bringing you to tears, or it’s so bad that it looks like a drunk five-year-old tried to draw each frame with broken crayons. There really is no in between. 

This may be a bit of an exaggeration for the sake of comedy, but this is basically the best I can describe it without going into a several hundred page analysis and going frame by frame throughout the entire animation process. I have to just keep this nice and simple.

-Most Heart Warming Scene:

I was absolutely torn at this decision. I was at a crossroads. 

 Hinazuki’s first home cooked meal, or The Kiss™. 

On one hand, I had sobbed during that scene in Erased. It was so incredibly sad but heart warning at the same time.

But on the other hand, The Kiss™ was absolutely everything to me. 

And I, being the mature adult I was, threw my chair across the room, punched my arm through my desk, and screaming so loud that I had the police called on me. 

The Kiss™ wasn’t so much heart warming, as it was a threat to my furniture. 

It was more of a shock value, than a heart warming scene. Other scenes from Yuri On Ice that would have been better suited for this category would have been something like The Ring Exchange.

Though, because I was at such an absolute dilemma over this, I just didn’t vote for that one category. I couldn’t choose between the two, and I’m so glad I didn’t, because it would have haunted me for a while.

-Final Thoughts on the Awards:

I personally believe that Yuri On Ice did indeed deserve the other awards it received, such as Best Couple, Best Opening, Best Boy, Etc.

But even if you thought differently than me, even if you think that Yuri On Ice deserved absolutely none of the awards it received whatsoever, then that’s perfectly fine.

My opinion is no greater and no better than that of anyone else’s, but what do I know really.

Yuri On Ice Will Win Crunchyroll’s Anime of the Year Award:

I am only saying this now, a day in advance (depending on what time you read this), because it’s completely obvious that this is the inevitable outcome. It will win Anime of the Year on the 28th and there is absolutely no if about it.

My reasoning behind this is simply because Yuri On Ice has won countless other anime of the year awards already and not just from one place either.

Not only has Yuri On Ice won many, many Anime of the Year awards already, but the number of people who voted for the show is absolutely unbeatable. No show even comes close to those numbers, so mathematically, it’d be practically impossible for anything other than Yuri On Ice to win.

The (ridiculous) people in Crunchyroll’s comments seem to be setting themselves up for disappointment, almost intentionally. And this intentional and impending disappointment, brings us to the most important part of this article.

Abysmal Hatred and Heinous Spite:

This was the whole reason I decided to write this in the first place. I was so overcome with confusion because what I was seeing was so absolutely and totally bizarre.

To explain this simply, an online anime popularity poll result upset some people. They decided to insult people, complain, and succumb to hatred because they refused to accept the results like a group of self-entitled children.

What made this whole situation worse, was the fact that they didn’t keep their hatred contained to just Crunchyroll’s website.

No, they decided to harass individuals on every format, flood comment sections on websites like YouTube, Instagram, and Pixiv, and also Tweet obnoxious insults to Crunchyroll’s Twitter.

Some of the things I’ve seen generally make me concerned or question my existence, but not in a deep and thought provoking way. No, I mean the, “Why do I exist when people can be so dumb that it makes me question whether the word, ‘intelligence’ has ever meant anything at all,” kind of questioning your existence.

I’ve seen some pretty backwards statements before all over the internet, and sometimes in real life too. It obviously wasn’t a surprise to me when I saw hatred overflowing after January the 11th, but I never thought it would be on this kind of level.

There were some people that weren’t just hateful to the fans, the show, and people’s opinions, but they were also being hateful to gay people as well. You just can’t make this up:

People being blatantly homophobic because of an anime popularity poll is just absolutely ridiculous.

One of the most frequent comments I see regarding Yuri On Ice is: “I’m not homophobic, but I didn’t like the gay characters/gay couple.” 

Not only is that an incredibly strange thing to say, but that’s akin to saying, “I’m not racist, but I didn’t like the black characters/black couple.” 

If saying the last statement makes you seem racist, then wouldn’t saying something like the statement before it make you sound homophobic as well?

Besides all of this chaos, it got people to start very interesting conversations about how female fans are treated differently than most male fans.

Well, regardless of the blatant homophobia, hatred, and general idiocy that had taken place just a few weeks ago, I’m here to tell you to prepare for more because it’s not going to stop and January the 28th is just going to make it worse.

Future Hatred and Intolerance:

Remember how I said their impending disappointment seems almost intentional?

Have you ever known that something wasn’t going to go your way, but you built it up for yourself anyways, just so you could have an excuse to hate something? Yeah, maybe when you were a child

This is what these people are doing to themselves right now, solely as an excuse to hate the show more than they already do. 

In fact, there will probably be ever more backlash from Yuri On Ice winning Anime of the Year 2016, than from any other award it has won so far

If this happens, then the harassment, homophobic behavior, and hatred for the show and its fanbase will only increase. 

My only goal, as of now, is to let you all know beforehand, so it isn’t much of a shock when it inevitably does happen.

Final Thoughts:

I honestly think that if Yuri On Ice hadn’t won a single award, that this fandom would have accepted the fact and moved on.

I don’t think that the Yuri On Ice fandom would have done anything even remotely similar to what these hateful people did.

Of course, there will always be a handful of rude or immature people, but overall, this fandom is generally well behaved (which is a miracle.)

I’m going to be serious here for a moment and say that I don’t want it to ever get this hateful at any point within the fandom, ever. If this fandom ever becomes this hateful and this toxic at any point in the future, then you will know why I gave up fandom culture for good.
