The Psychology of
In a lot of ways – it’s similar as other tight-knit communities (like the gaming community).
When you’ve been a part of the
Some of these patterns show up whether you’re a casual
Not all of these “patterns” are positive either, as many fans will admit to.
I see it everyday and it never gets old.
What are the types of
There’s quite a lot, with new one’s in the last decade.
There’s both good and bad.
Let’s focus on that and how it translates.
1. The elitist
Might as well get the most obvious one out of the way first.
The elitist is the
- Diss new
animefans and put them down.
- Deter new
animefans from joining the community.
- Acts like they’re superior to everyone, especially newcomers.
- Attacks other
animefans who disagree with their opinion (popular opinions or otherwise).
- Can never have a conversation without arguing or being a self righteous c*nt.
The elitist is the enemy to the
“You have no taste”, “if you like XYZ you’re an idiot”.
These types are constantly looking for attention to validate themselves.
2. The motivator
These types of
Instead they use the amount of
They then use that motivation to share knowledge with the

He makes videos and combines exercise with
In fact this is what he does for a living. It’s part of his business.
3. The student
This type of
These types of fans are similar to “the motivated” type since they both crossover.
A lot of these
4. The creator
The creator is also self explanatory. They create as a result of becoming
- Voice Actors.
The “creator” fits into these categories.
The same is true for Mangaka’s in Japan and outside of Japan as well. And it’s no different for
5. The culture vulture
Yes, this is a type of
The culture vulture type of
What they don’t show you until later is they have a hidden agenda.
That agenda relates to:
- Trying to “change” the political correctness of
- Complaining and criticizing
anime24/7 and profiting of it.
- Taking the so called “moral ground” and talking down to Japan’s culture.
- Colonist behavior.
- Bowing down to the SJW mentality to pander to the loud minority.
Culture vultures are everywhere in the
Some are on Twitter, and some are on sites like CBR.
6. The “feminist”
I don’t have to say much about this. It’s obvious where I’m going with it.
Even though it’s a smaller portion than it seems on the surface, there’s a group of loud feminists who are
The psychology of these
Some will even write cringe headlines (if they publish content) and then play mental gymnastics rather than be direct and straightforward about their points.
For good reason – this type of fan is the minority.
Some have even tried going to Japan to force their rhetoric on the Japanese, and FAILED obviously.
7. The expert
The expert shouldn’t be confused with the elitist.
There are elitists who’ve watched 100’s and 100’s of
Unsurprisingly a lot of these types are:
- Content creators
And so on.
They share so much knowledge they’re responsible for bringing new
If it wasn’t for this group a lot of websites and news outlets wouldn’t exist. Especially not to the degree that it is today.
8. The casual fan
These types of fans are “casual”, meaning they’re laid back about
9. The underground fan
The psychology of this type of fan is similar to a rebel. They reject the typical mainstream shows, and watch a lot of unknown
In fact they’re the types who give you recommendations you’ve never even heard of. And aren’t the biggest ravers when it comes to shows the whole world already knows about.
They pride themselves on this knowledge. And even though they’re not elitist, they do stand by their style of watching
And they offer a different perspective from the mainstream crowd.
10. The mainstream fan
And of course – the mainstream fan. The psychology of this
They know all the mainstream shows and a lot of their favorite
Naruto. DBZ. One Piece. Hunter x Hunter. Death Note.
- Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Some mainstream fans haven’t even watched more than a few
Mainstream fans don’t watch anything outside of mainstream shows. And will stick with one or a few of their favorites for years. Without watching anything else.
I used to be one of these fans.
At one point I only watched
I graduated some years later and haven’t looked back since.
11. The romantic
The romantic type is obvious. They LOVE romance
- And so on.
Waifu’s is a separate category by itself unrelated to a type of
Romance shows have tons of
This is where you find tons of ideal types of boys and girls, men and women that you’d wanna marry or be with if they were real.
And besides that – the romantic just loves romance
12, The Otaku
The Otaku is plain and simple. They’re gamers, love
Otaku’s aren’t into
Can you think of anymore?
How would you describe the psychology of
