The Special One
True & Honest Fan
Would you think maybe it's because of how comic books didn't get popular, corporations decided to insert woke stuff to get more income from those advocating for social justice? Or do you think there's other reasons behind it?It was because comics in the west became convoluted, boring, confusing, and ideologues took control of the companies.
tbh I don't watch or even read capeshit so it would be best for you to enlighten me.
Depending on your definition of "gatekeep". If you mean something like laughing at people freaking out over "controversial" scenes (note the double quotes) for anime/manga, this has been going on for years and even on social media that people are getting tired of this nonsense. If you mean something like "You are not a real anime fan if you watch JoJo, real anime fans watch actually good anime like Sword Art Online, Boku no Pico, Love Hina, Darling in the Franxx, Pop Team Epic and Boruto" then no that's you being a retard.I dunno, gatekeep?
Talk about it constantly so people are aware of it?
As for keeping on talking about it constantly, sure, you can feel free to do so, but if you want yourself to be taken yourself seriously, follow these 3 simple rules, these are based on something I've observed over the past few years, these may be inaccurate and may change over time but should be more like guidelines:
1. Don't nitpick. Just because you dislike the current state doesn't mean you have to dislike every single thing from it. You do not have quality taste just because you manage to dissect everything from it.
2. Be consistent. Stick to what you are complaining about and not disliking so much that any changes you would suggest to improve would lead to a lose-lose situation either way.
3. Try and look at the current direction in the other side's point of view. Don't bash the new direction all because you dislike change. See in their point of view and understand why they made such a change and criticise from there.
