So after releasing my last anime discussion video I decided to post a sequel to it but this time explaining the term of being a bandwagon anime fan. This is mostly due to the fact that it was suggested that I talk about this term more. So feel free to leave comment or suggestions of topics you would like me to talk about.
Remember I come out with new videos every Monday, Wednesday, & Saturday. Also be sure to click the bell icon to turn on post notifications so that your notified when a new video is released. Plus like always be sure to subscribe if you haven’t already.
So I know that this can be a kind of sensitive topic or one where people may wonder what the heck I’m talking about but let me explain. What I mean about this topic is have you ever been embarrassed when you have seen another anime fan very overly excited? I’m just asking this question because I know that us as anime fans can sometimes be scrutinized as being nerdy or not cool but many of us (well I like to think are much more than that and are actually quite cool).
So when you see an anime fan acting how others may perceive us does it make you a little embarrassed that someone may be acting on that stereotype. I’m not going to lie I have had those times. They are far and few between but they have happened.
But how about everyone else? Has this ever happened to you? Did you do something about it? Also how do you feel about those stereotypes when it comes to anime fans? Comment down below and let me know.

P.S. I will be reviewing Sailor Moon Crystal but it won’t be until it has finished airing. Thanks!
This is something that I’ve always wondered but what exactly makes someone an anime fan? I mean is it how they look, how much anime merchandise they have, or could it be how much they know about anime?
The reason why I’m asking this question is because I’ve had people say to me when they find out I like anime that I don’t look like an anime fan. I don’t exactly understand what that means but I took it for that it means that I’m not someone they thought would like anime. Which is weird to me because I didn’t know that you needed to look a certain way for you to like or enjoy something.
Also it makes me wonder that would someone who doesn’t own a lot of anime merchandise be looked as less of fan than someone who has a lot of anime merchandise? The same goes for someone who has seen a lot of different kinds of anime and someone who has only really watched mainstream anime such as Bleach and Naruto?
I guess my definition of an anime fan is just someone that enjoys and respects the medium of what it is. To me you don’t have to look a certain way to enjoy anime. You don’t have to own a lot of merchandise to be a fan and you don’t have to have watched every anime out there to be a fan either.
But what are your thoughts about this topic? I would definitely love to know. Comment down below about what you think and like always I will answer back.
