This rant, as you may guess, involves Shugo Chara, (just like pretty much every rant of mine). But I’m using a Ranka image, because I am tired and she is cute. Head off that question right there. Plus, I don’t want any morons getting any more cute pictures of SC from me (you guys suck).
My blogging slowed down, a lot recently. I blame it all on being tired. It’s partially my own fault, but I’m going to go out on a limb and blame a lot of morons on the internet with nothing better to do with their time than to stalk me on the internet just because I said “bad things” about someone that they like.
Quite frankly, it’s more tiring to ignore it than it is to write a rant, so here’s a nice big frustrated rant. Enjoy.
(Disclaimer, because I realize this is very vague…this isn’t directed at everyone.) Also, lots of text, so you can skip to the bottom if you don’t care about the reasons and just want to know the outcome.
You guys suck. Especially you morons who complained about everyone else dropping Shugo Chara blogging. And all of you “mature” Tadamu fans who think that just Amuto fans are the immature ones. Yeah, fucking right. I’m ashamed of some of the newer Amuto fans, but I can say rather certainly, none of them ever tried to stalk someone on the internet just because they got called out for being a moron.
Spamming comments on my posts that just say, “You’re an idiot! You’re so mean!” are fucking stupid. I poke a little fun at an anime character and you call me an idiot? With no basis except my opinion is different than yours. And I’m an idiot. Yeah…right. And I’m mean because I don’t feel the same as you either. Huh.
How closed-minded. These little twits are even worse than the people who demand everyone like fillers.
Then because I get called stupid and respond with sarcasm, they insist I’m being mean and picking on them. If you don’t like me responding in kind to your rude messages, stop e-mailing me and sending me PMs on random sites you morons.
I mean, who can expect to go, “You’re stupid” and get a response all filled with flowers and cupcakes. It’s like all of them lack common sense. When they call someone stupid, it’s not mean, but when I do, it is. Great.
And the e-mails I’ve been getting from one specific person are the most immature things you will ever read. One of them actually said, “Hah! So there!” to me like she proved some awesome point. And she had this “elaborate” thing going about pretending to be an Amuto fan who got converted by her “friend” (and her friend was someone who used her e-mail to go around insulting amuto fans…right) so that when she asked me to take down my comments about Tadase looking gay in his “cute” chara-nari, I’d listen to her.
I kind of knew what she was up to from the beginning. Though I thought she might have just been saying it to get some comments that she thought twice about deleted, I should have known better than to expect rationality. It was the most annoying crap when she was pretending to be an Amuto fan too. Always telling me about how much she loved my blog. Ugh. I didn’t even reply to most of the crap she sent my way. That should have clued her in to the fact that I wasn’t buying it.
Even if I had fallen for it, I wouldn’t have listened. What I said is in the “thoughts” section. It’s just my opinion. And I live in America where we practically abuse our right to free speech! No way am I taking something down just because some random girl asks me to.
((Really, I’m tempted to give this girl the “NAOMI” treatment and show off all the e-mails she sent me, but I’d rather stay on topic (if someone wants to read them though, I’ll share them).))
I was prepared for this when I started blogging Shugo Chara in a real blog, but the timing is pretty bad for when it all blew up. All of this random crap is happening when I’m just a little over a week away from going back to school. I haven’t been in regular school for a while now, so my return to school is really stressful, especially when I’m trying to find a job too.
I don’t want to spend time dealing with stupid comments. Even deleting them is a pain because they keep coming back. They won’t LEAVE. Usually trolls get bored over time when they see you don’t give a crap, but these girls keep coming back every week because of my episode summaries.
Recently, I didn’t even post my SC episode review until VERY late Sunday, partially because I just wasn’t sure if I wanted to do summaries anymore. I like helping out the nice fans who don’t understand everything and helping people decide whether they even want to bother with the episode. I don’t want to help these girls.
I love contributing to a fandom in a positive way, but it’s getting tiring. I never get any bad comments about my summaries, but I enjoy writing up the thoughts, not the summary. If your demands really made me stop doing my thoughts, I’d stop doing everything. I mean…these girls do realize that this is a blog…right? I don’t have to do this.
Then I’ve gotten complaints about how when I act like I’m better than these girls (which granted I do, but it’s just because I can spell right and back up my opinions properly) it’s because I have a blog.
To which I can only respond, “*blinkblink* Wha? That’s…what?”
When has owning a blog ever been a sign of superiority? Why would I think that? All the stupidest crap I’ve ever seen on the internet has been on blogs. Blogs are just…blogs. Anyone can have one.
I know that some people I’ve specifically said, “Don’t like what you read? Make your own blog?” have done just that (they generally last only one post though).
I’m also ticked because people wonder why everyone stops blogging Shugo Chara. I’d say it’s less about the annoying fillers and more about these annoying fangirls.
Then I’m ticked off because only the SC fans take everything I say here seriously. I guess they never read my About page or they just didn’t pay attention.
“Simplicity is my own personal little anime blog.”
“It can be very opinionated and full of blind rage or blind fangirling.”
“I’m not a professional and can say whatever I want to say, don’t take me too seriously people.”
“So, I hope that people realize I am incredibly biased in…everything.”
“But you really can’t expect unbiased views from a blog anyway.”
Why can’t they just read that? At the time I wondered if I really had to state such obvious things. Now I’m glad I did, but it doesn’t matter since they don’t read it anyway.
I guess the reason why this all has me so down even though I’m not personally insulted is because…it makes me angry anyway! Just for a different reason! I don’t want my fandom to be like this! I want to be able to have intelligent conversations and not even have to dwell on stuff like this.
These girls specifically spend time insulting someone because they dislike something they like…It really is closed-minded! This is happening over an anime that has a theme of finding the good in everyone; being friends with people you may disagree with. I mean, aren’t these kids even watching the anime they’re arguing over?
No. They’re too busy arguing over something that doesn’t even matter. What does it matter what I think about Tadase? It’s what you think that counts!
And quickly stepping away for a moment, how come when I insulted Tadase in the past I specifically got comments that say, “Tadamu rules! Amuto sucks!” from the flamers. Do you guys even like Tadase for anything other than your stupid pairing!? I think Tadase deserves better fans than that.
Then when you point that out to them, then you get, “Tadase’s hot” which leaves me horrified. Tadase may be thought of as cute, but hot? My god. I’m being harassed by shota-con girls.
Anyway, if these “fans” kept up to date instead of demanding I edit posts weeks old, they’d figure out that I don’t even hate Tadase. I’m just really, really anti-Tadamu because I think it’s a shallow pairing. Lots of people do and there’s nothing wrong with that.
I mean, sure I still don’t like Tadase, but that’s just the way I am. I can’t like princely characters. And even Tadase fans thought his chara nari looked gay! There’s Ikuto fans who say they think Ikuto’s chara nari looks gay too, but we all don’t jump down their throats!
I feel like this is dragging on a bit now, but bear with me.
When I get a comment or an e-mail, I’m happy. The thing I love about having a blog is the fact that I get to discuss anime with people in a way that’s easy for me. Whether they agree or disagree with me, as long as there’s substance to the comment, I love discussing with the commentor.
But when it’s just “you suck” for no reason except I disagree with them…I just don’t get it. Why not state why you disagree with me instead of personally attacking me? And then, why does it continue for so long? Why spend all this time on the computer…for something negative like this?
Do you girls enjoy it? I really can’t imagine that. You can’t even be a troll who just likes hurting other people’s feelings, because then you wouldn’t yell at me for “being mean”.
On that point, how can you even pretend to be better than me when you go to all sorts of places purposely bashing people because of their opinions? Because I said bad things about a character? Because I said it in my own blog?
To bring up a recent event…lots of people are mad at Ranka from Macross Frontier right now. I’m a major Ranka fan, but did I go to all of these people and immaturely send them comments calling them stupid and mean? No. I accepted their opinion and can even see why they’d think that. No problems there.
I really don’t get it with some of these younger fans though. You girls are wasting your life and precious time by doing this! And that’s what really makes me angry! Every time I see another one of your dumb comments it reminds me of all the better things you could be doing!
Agh! That’s the worst part. I’m pissed off because they’re wasting their free time. They spend their day locked up with their computer, with so much free time that they can go around following someone on the internet over such a small matter, when they could be out and about. Being with people and developing real social skills.
I wish I’d had that sort of freedom when I was sixteen and seventeen, but I had to stay inside because I was sick. I was too tired to leave my house that often and I spent a lot of the day sleeping. I missed out on a lot of things because I had no choice. And people that take all of that stuff for granted make me sick.
I mean…plenty of anime fans have problems (which sometimes make them get more involved in their fandom as an escape), maybe these girls have problems too. But when they’re acting like shipping is the most important thing when they should know plenty of worse things out there, I really think they’re just being spoiled.
Or maybe you girls do get out, but why waste your time on the computer like this too? You could be discussing things you like instead.
And to clarify! Any Amuto fans or fans of any other shipping that gets personal about this crap piss me off too. It’s not just Tadamu fans. It’s all of you idiots!
Well, at least when all these girls will realize that two years went by that they’ll never get back, they’ll only be able to blame themselves. I’ll take that as punishment enough for them.
Now let’s wrap this up coherently. I’m making another declaration. I’m going to continue to state my opinions on this blog, no matter what anyone else has to say about it. If my “opinion” offends you, I’m sorry, but I don’t think I’m being unreasonable. I am sorry if I hurt your feelings anyway, I don’t like troubling other people. But I will stand up for myself.
And I’m going to continue blogging Shugo Chara with the “no-nonsense” blogging policy. To the very end! You immature girls can stick around, but I’m keeping this blog upbeat and on-topic. I like Shugo Chara too much for you girls to ruin it for me.
After all, you punish yourselves enough by wasting your time. And because I’ve already unwillingly lost time in the past, I won’t let you waste any more of mine.
Getting my feelings all out clears my head and makes it easier to love anime again. Now if the problem continues, I can easily just remind myself of this and feel better. The Amuto love only grows when I finish with something like this too because there’s nothing distracting me (and I love things more when people insult it). My enjoyment in the series all together grows more than before too because I’ve lost a reason to dislike it. I feel better than ever after meeting a minor struggle as a blogger and getting past it. Like hell annoying flames would keep me down.
Looks like it’s MISSION FAILED girls. Still loving Amuto, still stating opinions, still a happy fangirl. And now I’m re-energized to blog like normal. Better luck next time girls~!
Now then the image to apologize for my massive ranting text…
Amulet Cat (oh it’s exactly what it sounds like). This cute image is okay because the lameass fans that have been pissing me off won’t even want it. Nyahaha~! Amu doing a chara-nari with Yoru, Ikuto’s chara. Would you girls even want this? Somehow I don’t think so~!
(As an unnecessary final disclaimer, anytime I insult Tadamu fans, I’m only insulting the dumb ones. If you’re not dumb, you shouldn’t have a problem with it)
So…did anyone actually read the whole image free rant? Hmm, I don’t suppose so, but anyway it’s back to blogging as usual now. I felt like I was about to suffer a burnout, but I’m okay now. Who would have thought that blogging could be so therapeutic?
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
