>"90% of anime each season is harem anime."
How did such a foolish and inaccurate misconception become so prevalent?
Sounds like /v/ and their huge desire for big games to fail
I wonder what makes people do that, is it boredom? Or are they jaded and depressed and hate the thought of other people enjoying things?
>no other media has this problem.
Is this sarcasm? Video games for example have tons of people who are close minded about genres.
I'll give you that there's an unusual amount of genre elitism when it comes to anime, though.
there are more genres than pastel hair colored moeshit which is really 99 percent of all anime series today, see >>150334300, you can dislike much content in any media but still find enjoyment in a small percent
Not to this extreme, never found someone interested in music that only listens to one genre and hates the others unless he is a stupid teenager but those dont count, same with literature, who is interested in writing and only reads what genre? He would be laughed at by everybody.
It is exactly that, I think. It's just so over the top and faked, "THIS IS SO BAD HOW CAN ANYONE POSSIBLY LIKE THIS GARBAGE" sort of stuff. I'd say, it's probably a mix of both of the things you named but in general troll culture has become the preferred style on the internet. They don't care as long as they're annoying someone else.
>same with literature, who is interested in writing and only reads what genre? He would be laughed at by everybody.
/lit/ shits on genre fiction constantly but that may just be stupid teenagers like you said.
To be completely fair, people in the industry are well aware of the yuri fanbase and make a concerted effort to slide little things in. Anime is easily one of the most yuri-heavy forms of media out there.
Exactly what are you attempting to convey here?
1. Almost every season there is (usually) at least one high profile harem show or show with haremesque elements.
2. Harem shows tend to become incredibly popular regardless of quality.
It's confirmation bias: harem shows stand out so we think there's more of them around than there really are.
Have you ever considered that whining about it only makes things worse and the best way to deal with this kind of thing is to either respond seriously (silencing the asker) or to simply ignore him (and keep the thread going without derailing it)?
Whining about it, in multiple posts even, is the worst thing you can do. It neither satisfies the asker nor keeps the thread on the rails.
Did you just color in every fucking anime and call it moeshit regardless of whether it is or not? Are you stupid?
It's not even consistent. You colored Cardfight Vanguard but not Monster Hunter.
