This is why Anime Fans are hated.

Something you probably should not be proud of.

Something you probably should not be proud of.

So it seems google likes giving me ads to really STUPID anime related websites. Today’s greatest hit is
“Anime T Shirtshttp://www.offworlddesigns.comCool Original Anime Designs Shinigami-Cosplay Slacker-Glomp Me

This is why we can’t have nice things. \(o ̄∇ ̄o)/

So ok say you’re an otaku and you just gotta have that Code Geass tshirt with CC’s huge ass on it. Perhaps that is your “wear” to an anime convention rather than cosplay because well maybe cosplay just isn’t your thing. That’s cool. However, how can anyone with any self respect wear a shirt that says:

If this actually applies to you, I pity da fool.

If this actually applies to you, I pity da fool.

Now see this shirt is ironic because if you’re addicted to anime, you probably aren’t going to be having sex. You are going to be watching anime because it is SO ADDICTIVE. Fapping with your hand does not count as sex therefore wearing this shirt does not accurately reflect your feelings on how ADDICTIVE ANIME IS😯

Why this shirt fails.

Why this shirt fails.

I mean this shirt right here is the epitome of weeaboo. This is why we can’t have nice things. This is why you go to an anime con full of stinky otaku dressed in outfits they wouldn’t even wear in a D-grade porno. Maybe in America (or wherever) ANIME IS SO KEWL AND SUGOI, but in Japan they actually put Disney on a freaking pedestal. When I talked to a Japanese friend who was visiting the US for a few months, he explained to me that in Japan Disney is considered to be “pure” and “innocent” while anime is dirty and only for the outcast otaku. So no, this is why anime loses because in Japan they like their Mickey Mouse bags & shirts over a shirt with a strike witch on it.😆

It really bothers me too when in artist alleys, some artists instead of displaying the work they are passionate about, they display/sell shit to pander to otaku. I suppose they gotta make money but the fact that they pander to such retarded hobbies is what bothers me. For example artists who will sell pics of Sasuke & Naruto making out, even though they prolly don’t give a damn about Naruto or yaoi but some rabid FYG will run and buy it. In addition people who sell stupid cat ears and buttons that say “XD” or “I LOVE POCKY”.

The worst part is, there are people who are THAT DUMB that will eat this shit up faster than said box of pocky. They look at and immediately think “OH MAN I LOVE POCKY XD” and immediately buy those 2 buttons. Or they have scorned all American animation (now I can agree with that to a degree but come on Disney had some good classics!) and so a shirt that says “ANIME IS WIN” is right up their idiot alley. These are also the same people who will proudly proclaim that they are a narutard. I mean do they even know what Narutard really means? It doesn’t mean someone who reads or watches Naruto. It means someone who in addition to reading or watching Naruto will proceed to then act like a total asshat about it everywhere they go.

So yea it pisses me off that they make these products to further PROMOTE this kind of idiotic behavior, rather than you know, shaming it like they do in Japan.

    If someone I knew wore that shirt and I was privy to his (it’s always a guy, those dumbasses) wearing it, I don’t know what I’d do: Cry, laugh, or punch him in the face. Maybe all three at once, while taking a video of it for posting on YouTube later.

    There needs to be more otaku happyslapping to curb horrid attire like these.

  2. jp says:

    Meh, stop thinking politically and do your thing. The fools and dumbasses will always outnumber you.

  3. nazarielle says:

    Well, I think the Narutard t-shirts should be mandatory for those said fans. That way I can know who to stay the fuck away from. I’ve only seen one anime related t-shirt that I thought was actually decent. It had the line “Yuri: great taste, less filling” and some girl I didn’t recognize.

  4. Hinano says:

    i’m just trying to keep the blog running during a crappy anime season😆

  5. felicity says:

    LOL, but such fucktards ARE a public shame here too! Like you said, the guy wearing that shirt is going to be shunned by society and never get laid (unless it’s by the overweight chick with the I❤ POCKY pin, but that’s another story)

  6. Hinano says:

    rofl oh the horror I hope they use protection, who wants those things breeding!😆

  7. Abi-kun says:

    Yeah Disney have a great classics collection (my very first contact with a VHS tape and VCR was a Disney’s Snow White lol) but even Disney nowadays have a tendency to take a classic story and turn it into a piece of poo disregarding the original ending (Little Mermaid or Hunchback of Notre Dame anyone ?). That being said I don’t see the hope for those fucktards in the future anyway, and that includes any type of fanatic fans not only Narutards. Some people are just born stupid weather they like anime, hip hop or whatever. Ant they will always be a bunch of smartasses that will profit from that kind of “fans”.

  8. Shadro says:

    Ugh, it is sad I know a group of people in my college who would buy those if they saw them. I was just talking with someone yesterday and how I can just walk in the commons and see someones laptop with some anime wallpaper close to softcore or whatever. I mean look its one thing to want to show your a fan and stuff, but there are appropriate ways to do so. In the end though nothing can be done about it, they are gonna be how they are (and this is why my school can’t have a nice anime club, because god if I ran it most of the people who would want to join would be shown the door because of this /rant).

  9. I’m actually more curious about the existence of yaoi paddles. Mostly because my mind can’t wrap around the reasoning behind why anyone would purchase one.

  10. Hinano says:

    Shadro> My college anime club was the same way so I never really joined it.

    zero> They purchase one so they can slap each other on the ass. Thankfully most anime cons have banned them.🙄

  11. Micchi says:

    It all stems from those types of people who find something ‘new’ and then rave incessantly about it as if it’s the best thing EVER (until their next hobby). It’s obnoxious, and it doesn’t only apply to anime.

    @Abi-kun: Ya, I liked the old Disney movies. Now, it’s kinda turned into a bit MEH.

  12. Hinano says:

    I miss the disney movies that were like hand animated and stuff. All their new crap is 3D and features like the set of stereotypical characters plastered on whatever animal that movie is about.

  13. Anca says:

    What’s wrong with having an anime wallpaper in a dorm room? Or wearing a Bleach T-Shirt casually? Or having a figurine on a shelf, or doodling retarded moe faces on your notebook during a boring course? Because it’s not mainstream?

    For some reason, anime fans seem to have a huge guilt complex. Nobody minds someone wearing an Evanescence or Linkin Park T-Shirt (as long as it’s not somewhere where it’s formal wear required), or a half-naked Britney Spears wallpaper. What wrong with anime culture?

    Naked children, guys kissing each other, strange symbols, all have their stigmas that have nothing to do with anime.

  14. Scheris says:

    “anime is as addicting as sex” ha, as if the one wearing the shirt knows what sex is. Wearing this shirt immediately sends the message “I’m a virgin and love fapping to 2D girls”

    As usual this people are oblivious to the fact that the Japan of their delusions doesn’t exist and that the real Japan sees them as an embarrassment that should be hidden…
    But as long as they keep being major fucktards, we can keep making fun of them

  15. JohnG says:

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong w/ shirts and posters. I think the problem is with these particular shirts and the way that anyone wearing these shirts is actually making fun of themselves except that to buy them would mean you’re probably not in on the joke.

    Probably the same people who buy anime torrents!

  16. Drakron says:

    Disney started to rip-off a lot of old classics but that is not really the problem with it.

    The problem was when Disney started to make one movie and then pass-produce direct to DVD sequels (“The land before time” anyone?).

    I do not hold Disney as a paragon of anything besides the “cartoons are for kids” mentality, of course I enjoyed “Avatar, The Last Airbender” as I cannot say the same about several anime series but considering the problems that “Avatar” faced …

  17. Hinano says:

    Probably the same people who buy anime torrents!

    Maybe they are a privately joined venture😆

  18. jpmeyer says:


    I think the deal is that the people that buy yaoi paddles can’t really buy anything yaoi related anyway and don’t really get what yaoi is about in the first place, so they buy the paddles because it’s the only thing they see that’s associated with it


    It would be different if that person was wearing a Linkin Park shirt which instead of saying “LINKIN PARK HYBRID THEORY” on it, said “MY OBSESSION WITH LINKIN PARK IS EXTREME TO POINT THAT IT HAS BECOME A DETRIMENT TO MY DAILY ACTIVITIES.”

  19. Jeff Lawson says:

    I initially read that last one as, “Why Japan Won,” and thought, “Wait a minute… I’m pretty sure Japan lost.”

  20. Di Gi Kazune says:

    Pocky is seriously overrated.

  21. redmaigo says:

    Bring the rage girl….

    Weeaboo Nation really thinks that Japan is some type of anime holy land where otakings and fujoshi-samas rule. There are hot and cold running meido’s for every guy, ninja’s bouncing from tree-to-rooftop and bishounen making out on every street corner.

    Hell, they don’t even do that in Nichome (West Shinjuku) which is gay Tokyo.

    I was in Japan back in 2007 and guess what? They feel the same way about their nerds that the rest of the world feels about their own; an embarrassing sub-culture that you just don’t talk about.

    You’re also right about the Disney worship. Besides, if it weren’t for the Disney influence anime in its present visual form would not even exist.

    Yeah, Disney puts out the dreck but the anime offerings coming from Nihon the past couple of years haven’t been the best either.

    After all is said and done I realize that the word fan is just short for fanatic. This means that you are going to have to deal with this type of behavior no matter what.

  22. TheBigN says:

    Sorta jp’s point to Anca. I don’t mind if you wear something that shows you like anime as long as the message isn’t corny/cheesy as hell or sucks balls. The shirts here sadly fall into this problem.

  23. Mitch H. says:

    To be honest? Give me five hundred narutards and weaboos over a dozen teenaged mothers, three meth-heads, or a parlor full of moonbats trading in their birkenstocks for nice shiny new jackboots.

    Try to perceive a distinction between “behavior which embarrasses me” and “behavior which is harmful”. The latter *ought* to be a subject of shame. Obsessing over the former is how you eventually end up with honor-killing.

    I exaggerate for effect, but I mean, really! You can’t have nice things because:

    *some meth-addled bastard broke in and stole your nice things
    *some fast-talking mortgage-pimpin’ bastard talked your dumb ass into a ARM which is eating up every dime you and your spouse and your kids can make
    *your daughter let her idiot boyfriend knock her up & now you have to put all your family’s disposable income into diapers for little Trunks, Jr

    Almost *nobody* has been materially deprived because some fellow-member of their in-group has been seen in public playing with yaoi paddles or wearing “glomp me!” t-shirts.

    So please, enough with the rhetorical throat-cutting of catgirls for the high crime of dishonoring the tribe in the eyes of society!

  24. Hinano says:

    You’ve obviously never been glomped by a 300lb sailor moon or spanked with a yaoi paddle before if you think anime fans are harmless!

  25. quigonkenny says:

    “I mean do they even know what Narutard really means? It doesn’t mean someone who reads or watches Naruto. It means someone who in addition to reading or watching Naruto will proceed to then act like a total asshat about it everywhere they go.”

    There’s that kind of person in everything. Religion, atheism, liberalism, conservatism, conformity, nonconformity, sports, academics, etc.

    For every person who’ll wear an “I see shinigami” t-shirt, there’s someone who’ll wear an “I’d rather be waterboarding” t-shirt or an Obama t-shirt telling MLK he can wake up since his dream has come true. People are just asshats by nature. Those who aren’t asshats about something just haven’t found their “muse”.

  26. kunikochan says:

    Wow…this is sad…though I can’t say I’m supprised in the least (-へ-)

    Its not that I’m bashing merchandise for Anime, or Disney (because I love Disney and support their original works as well as quality anime merch that all otaku can enjoy) but its crap like NARUTO+RETARD=ANIMEFAN is what I have a problem with; it gives everyone within the anime fandom the title “dork/loser” (as well as a “we all think America sucks at everything” type view when in fact many of us love our America and a few of its productions, such as Avatar or Disney)

    And don’t even get me STARTED on the people that actually behave this way… ><

  27. kunikochan says:

    …this gets any worse and we’ll be right up their with the Twilight fandom >A<;

  28. Sh1zuka says:

    I LAWL’d. Scary thing is, I know a couple of these people in my Japanese class…

  29. lostty says:

    Let’s just keep it at that those shirts are simply degrading to anyone who has ever even seen and enjoyed an anime… Whether they buy them or not it’s embarrassing that they were even created

  30. blanca says:

    seriously, you people discuss stupid things, i mean, if i saw someone wearing those kind of t-shirts i would not care less, i mean that’s not your problem, it’s THEIR problem. So you think that affects how people see this, yes it’s true, but you shouldn’t care right? because you are not an otaku yourself, therefore i don’t see the point of this whole post, you take things very serious for god’s sake, there’s more interesting things you can talk about, hinano you just like to rage on dumb things wich makes you rage on your own rage wich makes you rage on the rage that makes you rage

  31. Riddle me this:

    Would you rather have the idiots hide their lunacy, and then have it spring up during what you thought would be a regular conversation?

    Or would you rather they wore shirts proclaiming “stay the f*** away from me, I have issues,” giving you prior warning to stay the hell away from them?

  32. mellow_bunny says:

    I can’t have nice things because I burn them. Or w/e.

  33. lelangir says:

    >>they display/sell shit to pander to otaku.

    you know you’re only adding fuel to the fire😈

  35. Jura says:

    I have yet to see any such “otaku” or weaboo in real life.

  36. 7 says:


    seriously, you people discuss stupid things…therefore i don’t see the point of this whole post, you take things very serious for god’s sake, there’s more interesting things you can talk about

    Stupid? Maybe for you, yes. Pointless? I beg to differ. Who are you to decide what things are more interesting to talk about? You seem to forget two things..

    1. This is a f*cking blog. If a post seems stupid or pointless to you does not mean it is for everybody else. And

    2. The world does not revolve around you. It’s not up to you to call on what’s interesting or better to talk about.

    You amuse me..lolz

    xD and Disney rocked a while ago everyone grew with “The Lion King” i still love that movie xD that post only speaks truth

  45. omisyth says:

    Wait a second, anime won? I always thought it was a niche hobby for the confused and misunderstood D:

  46. DS says:

    What’s daiklave?

    Also, I know a girl who hates Disney because it’s NOT for kids. Instead, its full of penis castles (a la Little Mermaid), sexual tension, and women falling for their abusers (Beauty and the Beast).

  47. Daiklaves.
    They’re from this game.

    Basically Buster Sword ripoffs from the weeaboo’s answer to D&D.

  48. shalala says:

    wow after reading these posts. it got me wondering people can do what ever they want. some people will super hate it whiles the other people will will keep doing it because they can and most love to piss other people off.

  49. Hinano says:

    tj> I’m not generating comments though, more like channeling my rage into something other than JP and Pangya (but now I got Pangya wii so this will probably subdue)

  50. Blowfish says:

    I wonder how they convinced the cook to partake in this commercial:

    Id like to say that this is an US only phenomenon but its the same over here aswell.The sad thing is that you wont be able to do anything against it.

    Feels good to release your anger huh’?

  51. dick jones says:

    “When I talked to a Japanese friend who was visiting the US for a few months, he explained to me that in Japan Disney is considered to be “pure” and “innocent” while anime is dirty and only for the outcast otaku”

    Hinano, your jap friend is god!

  52. ewok says:

    I’ve mailed this pic anyway to my friend who has mangalegion chaos space marines army for tabletop gaming, he’s gonna so love getting mickey and bugs heads on spikes for his models😛

  53. wah says:

    Disney movies are pretty good kid’s cartoons

  54. DS says:

    Your t-shirts aren’t as good as mine!

  55. ConQuest says:

    I understand where Hinano is coming from I used to have the same train of though after attending AX00 or AX01 (dont really remember) and meeting Darien better known as Man Faye. However after sharing a couple of smokes with him and chatting with him, he is actually a pretty cool guy once you get past the whole body hair and fugly cosplay.

    After aging a bit and attending a few conventions with my kid sister and visiting friends that attend from across the nation I have come to appreciate these types of retarded anime fans. Let me tell you why: yes they are shameless, yes they are annoying, yes they are embarrassing, and it pains me to look at them but without their fanatic support the anime market wouldn’t be what it is now. Thanks to these tards anime has thrived and flourished here in America and in my book that isn’t bad.

    Every hobby has their fanatic they wish didn’t exist but like it or not they help the hobby grow by either getting more people involved or spending their cash on merchandise. So would I ever invite one of these guys to party in one of the rooms I rent out at AX or Otakon meh maybe but I sure the hell wouldn’t invite them to hang out at my house for a kick back or watch anime.

  56. Hinano says:

    lol every time I went to an anime con I either went with a close friend or rented the room alone. I never rented with strangers, good lord😯

    last thing I want is stepping on loose pocky in the morning

  57. We don’t get this kinda crap Down Under. Instead we get:

    “Haruhi Suzumiya? Stone the crows, what’s that? I remember DragonBall Z was bonza as a kid, but THIS? This is news” – LOL at outdated anime references new Aussie anime watchers catch up on.

    Down Under, Australians either associate anime with DBZ or Sailor Moon, or hentai. If you’re fortunate, your innocent non-anime friends raised on Disney will never find out what hentai is as long as you never tell them it exists.

    Anyway, as for the Disney thing, I know The Lion King is a rip off of Osamu Tezuka’s Kimba the White Lion, but it’s not Walt Disney’s fault his sons and CEOs who run his studios now were corporate necromancers and pillaged the work of another, equally deceased at the time animator, who happened to be Japanese and who was the God of Manga as some Japanese labelled him. You can’t blame one dead man for the plagarism of another dead man’s work which the dead man knew about when both those dead dudes were alive (Osamu Tezuka and Disney met at the Worlds Fair, and somebody still never made a yaoi pairing out of it, which surprises me).

    I am actually happy that some Twilight fangirl told me that anime fans don’t have real girlfriends because Edward HAS SO MUCH MORE TO OFFER. I told her the truth: she was just as deluded as I was by that logic, and that reality check made her BAWWWWWW and sulk. Still, sometimes I wonder if I’m any better than that girl because I once hugged my pillow and dreamed of hugging Yomiko Readman from Read or Die, but that’s another story.

    Australia is a wonderful place where weaboo is not a word in the national lexicon, but then again, neither is “manga” or even “yaoi/yuri”. “Hentai” isn’t even used much, just “cartoon anime porn” is used as a jibe at anime fans. It’s a mixed blessing that anime is a niche hobby here, you wish more people shared your interests but you’re damn glad your parents don’t know Legend of the Overfiend exists.

  58. Disney’s been going downhill since The Lion King.

  59. kakoishii says:

    I was never one to wear any of those anime t-shirts that are pretty much plastered in such a way that says “I’m a total anime dork, come flock to me so you mock me for being such an outcast.” In other words most anime t-shirts are ugly and lack any sort of artisitic subtlety. I think I found one anime shirt I would wear, it was a fruits basket tank that subtly had the zodiac outline sporadically on it in teals and aquas on a navy tank. It was too expensive for me though, but enough of the tangent people who wear shirts like those deserve to be mocked.

  60. Hinano says:

    Jacob> That sounds like what American anime fandom was like back in the 1990s😛

    Dorian> Indeed

    kakoi> most anime tshirts are really a ripoff and are poorly designed. I mean i can come up with better crap in a personal cafepress store lol

    I can’t really agree with qigonkenny above. Yes, perhaps some people are just assholes who haven’t yet found their “muse of jackassery,” but not everyone is, or needs to be, an asshole. Rather than thinking about nice people as “assholes-in-waiting” can’t we just credit them with making an effort to be decent?

    Conquest’s comment is a little more complicated. Is it true that we have to take the bad with the good? Maybe. That doesn’t mean we won’t be gritting our teeth the whole way, though.

    So, basically, what you’re saying is that certain people tend to enjoy animation from a foreign country more than the animation produced by one of their country’s most well-known companies. That’s very interesting…

    …Kidding aside, the popularity of Narutard shirts, and other shitty anime apparel, is quite sad.
