It’s also a thing that goes back to Yaoi fans “shipping” male characters together which has become more toxic in 2022 in a lot of ways.
- Ideal romantic partners.
- Wanting certain characters to be together.
- The characters chemistry between each other.
- Wishful thinking.
And sometimes just to be toxic, argue, belittle, and fight other
Other examples are Hinata with
Shipping is something that will always be a hot topic in the
2. Vs Battles
Vs Battles are imaginary battle scenarios between characters from different universes/anime shows that are put against each other. And fans debate whether let’s say, Saitama can beat Goku if they ever fought.
This kind of thing is so prevalent in the
Whether we’re talking about people asking questions on Quora like “can Saitama beat Superman”, or it’s Tweets asking the same questions which gain 1000’s of reactions… It always ends up in a fight between fans.
Usually it’s the toxic type of in-fighting, name calling, insults, shaming, and even racism if it’s heated and controversial enough.

Some people think
And every other bad word in the dictionary, but a lot of fans are also of the idea that it can’t be helped because of how messed up the industry is, which is true.
When all is said and done the topic of
What is a Waifu/Husbando?
- Waifu = a girl/woman you’d WIFE in real life because of their qualities.
- Husbando – the opposite.
The waifu/husbando thing has probably been going on for a long time now. But the internet brought it to life and made it visible since you can see people talking about it everywhere.

Everyone needs a good laugh and that’s why
Ever since the internet came about (the modern internet) memes were one of the things that came out of nowhere. Someone decided to put pictures together sarcastically describing something, and here we are.
Anime memes have gotten more coverage as the years have gone by, to the point of people blending

Loli’s is a term too many people misconstrue, misinterpret, and purposely take out of context to make it mean something it doesn’t.

It’s a culture and while there is a dark side (particularly in the west), that’s not what it represents in general.
Anime quotes have always been a topic of discussion, but it wasn’t as popular many years ago compared to other topics like Vs Battles or Shipping.
I remember looking up
Since then I’ve seen this topic (and space) grow, evolve, and more people are talking about it, sharing it, sharing the quotes and doing their own versions more than ever before.

Reviews are naturally a big thing in the

Anime is a scapegoat so this topic will never die down.

Another way this is talked about is when fans share
This can either be when people review or analyze characters, or when they criticize or praise them.
Anime news is what drives the industry everyday. News is what drives media overall. There’s always something new happening that people wanna know about.
Everyday you’ll hear and see
- New announcements for
animeadaptations like Solo Leveling.
