“Something ain’t right when we talking”. – Drake 

In this Suuuper Anime podcast episode we discuss the highly controversial within the anime community of fake anime fans". Some weebs argue that there is no such thing as a fake fan and that anyone who enjoys anime should be welcomed into the community. Other weebs (haters) believe that certain behaviours, such as only watching popular anime series or not engaging with the community, makes someone a fake anime fan.

Discussion points in this podcast: 

  • What does it mean to be a fake anime fan? How do we define it? 
  • What behaviours do we think make someone a "fake anime fan"?
  • What behaviours do we think make someone a genuine anime fan? 
  • Is it important for anime fans to engage with the community, or is it enough to simply enjoy watching anime?
  • What role do we think gatekeeping and elitism play in the anime community?
  • How can weebs and anime fans alike create a more welcoming and inclusive community for all fans, regardless of their level of knowledge or engagement?
  • Can someone be a fan of anime without enjoying all aspects of the medium, such as manga or light novels?
  • We end the episode with playing the audio messages sent in by some amazing suuuperlights. Be sure to listen to hear their take on what a fake anime fan is.
