Why isn't there any mention in the fandom of Fluttershy being an Otaku/Weeaboo? Did everyone just somehow forget about this?
I didn't. People just don't mention it because being triggered by animus on an Ethiopian competitive-eating imageboard is the dopest meme ever.
Also Utena a best. I'm glad the artists realized that.
It HAS been brought up before; but not gone anywhere. Discussions go no where beyond pointing out the referenced characters. Seems DHX really inserted a detail the Fandom cannot spin head cannons out of.
>Why isn't there any mention in the fandom of Fluttershy being an Otaku/Weeaboo?
There was...back when the episode came out. It leaked months in advance too, so the time when people talked about it goes back even further than that.
>Did everyone just somehow forget about this?
No, but there isn't much to say...it was just kind of a one off gag that hasn't been referenced in the show again yet, unless you're expecting green about weeb Flutters then IDK, I'm sure it exists in Fluttershy threads
>be part vampire-bat
>be a closet weeb with NEET tendencies
She's already the best pony. What the fuck else are we supposed to discuss about her? The fact that she had an abortion because she was too scared she would be a bad mother and couldn't live with herself?
>all anime is moeshit
On a related topic, the only thing that would have made >>26102761's image better is if a certain strongheaded female had been horsified.
Yeah, all anime is ultra moe kawaii, right senpai? ;3
the biggest headcanon I've heard was that Flutters writes manga in her isolation, and no one reads them but the animals.
Luna is also apparently a writer in the Christmas comic (I know, not canon, but this is headcanon)
Fluttershy wanting her writer senpai (Luna) to notice her work would make an interesting story.
happy now, anon?
Ranma is very popular worldwide.
Even babbies can recognize Ranma and Ryoga, and might have even watched an episode.
Utena never got a proper western release though, so only ancient neckbeards who read the manga or imported unsubbed tapes from China watched saw it.
>Utena never got a proper western release though
Yes it did. The English voice actors were the best they had at the time.
That is to say, terrible. The english VA for Lina voiced Shiori. She did a preddy gud jerb, but it still doesn't hold a candle to the original audio.
Goddammit, I had this conversation before but learnt nothing.
Yeah a third of it got a release in America.
Not in Australia though.
The dub and distrubution was incomplete until 2003 though.
>It was never an art
Not so. I have seen some brilliant trolls. I especially likes the guy who would chime in on a conversation between two different anons, each time impersonating the other anon, until they were hopelessly at each others' throat.
>Also Utena a best. I'm glad the artists realized that.
Ten thousand times this. I'm always happy when there are folks who know of it.
>Yeah a third of it got a release in America.
No, there was an enormous pause while the Japanese and Americans argued about the distribution contract, but it was eventually all released.
And then rereleased a couple years ago, with a blu-ray re-rerelease in the works for sometime later this year through rightstufanime.com
>all these triggered niggers
Yes, yes, we know. Your medium is super duper serious, and should be taken seriously.
Well, not even that. It's like saying all art is like pic related.
It's nothing about being defensive, it's just not true.
Literally everyone bitched about it when the episode leaked.
but it didn't go anywhere because it wasn't very surprising.
well. the reference was. but Fluttershy being a weeb wasn't
Because most* anime sucks.
*cowboy bepop was okay
>4chan is an anime imageboard
No, 4chan is an imageboard. The first board just happened to be anime. That's like saying "America is a Protestant country. Catholics GTFO." Except that's not a perfect example because anime is now in the minority, with most of 4chan being non-anime now.
I won't lie, I'm tempted to spoiler you the whole thing.
4chan was literally created because moot and his friends couldn't post loli on something awful. 4chan is primarily about anime and Japanese culture. Boards like /g/, /v/, /k/, /mlp/, tv/, etc are all sub interests for anons who like that along with anime.
anon, let me ask you something. Do you come to /mlp/ for ponies or anime? If the answer is the former, then you have just proved yourself wrong. If your answer was the latter, then you are on the wrong board. People do not come to /mlp/ for anime, they come here for ponies. Just as people go to /k/ to discuss guns (technically weapons in general, but go take a look at /k/ right now to see how true that is), /g/ to discuss computer software/hardware, /v/ to be extremely autistic and cancerous (really to discuss video games), and /tv/ to discuss television and movies. Stop trying to say that 4chan is an anime website, because it isn't and probably never will be again.
Even now that he is kill, I'll take m00t's stance on the topic over yours.
I knew it was a good idea to save this image. Always was, always will be. Keep getting mad about Chinese cartoons on your sub-board about a Burgerstani cartoon with heavy Chinese cartoon influences.
>Always was, always will be.
>Keep getting mad about Chinese cartoons
The mad ones, here, aren't us, anon. But keep believing what you want, if it helps you go on.
Who's mad? I can post muh anime wherever I want on 4choms. I have literally no reason to be mad.
Of course, you're inevitably going to twist the fact that I replied at all into some depiction of me as "completely pooper-peeved, butt-blasted, saddlesore", what have you.
I have everything and you have nothing. You should lighten up.
>"completely pooper-peeved, butt-blasted, saddlesore"
That was years ago, things changed, /a/ isn't even one of the top 5 boards anymore and got dethroned by boards like /b/, /v/ /pol/ and /vg/, the other weeb boards are also slow as fuck and still get BTFO by boards like /mlp/ and /vr/, weebs may have built this website but they aren't the majority anymore, neither the most vocal group, just because moot was a fag that gave you special treatment it doesn't mean Hiro is going to do the same
And considering how weebs manage to be as bad as (if not worst) than bronies, goatfuckers and furries, its understandable that some people would rather see them fucking off to their own cesspools where they can circlejerk over literally barbie dolls for autists as much as they want
>just because moot was a fag that gave you special treatment it doesn't mean Hiro is going to do the same
Well, when that happens and people start getting banned for animus, let me know.
Until then, keep being triggered.
This isn't about /mlp/, its about boards where smug anime girls are a thing, /mlp/ doesn't give a shit, specially during hiatus
And no, i don't support this, this is the same kind of butthurt faggot mentality that created global rule 15
Kikuko Inoue, the VA of Celestia in the Japanese dub of MLP is also the voice of Alv in Kiddy Grade
But there's more: Anime=Cartoons. Steven Universe=Cartoon. So...ANIME=STEVEN UNIVERSE
TRIPS NEVER LIE!!!
STEVEN UNIVERSE IS BEST ANIME!
Too bad the report function is largely 'lol press this button for nothing to happen.'
>voices Ranpha Franboise in "Galaxy Angel"
Because it's just a silly visual pun (=shonen anime are what excite/scare fluttershy). It's like asking why they don't mention Pony France even tho Dash said "touchè" once: it could even exist, but that's not the point of the gag.
Oh, I don't mind: I never paid attention to the fandom, not intersted in the porn and don't care that much for animu jokes (I was a weeb, once). Also, I watch a fuckton of other things, SU is just some more minutes of mindless fun with a very likeable closing theme.
Simply grew out of it.
This doesn't mean I wouldn't watch an interesting chinese cartoon if I had the chance to, just that I don't feel the impulse to look for them anymore. If it happens, it happens (also I kinda dislike nu-animu, but that's another thing)
>do k-on fight hell demons?
Yes. One called Death Devil.
