Japanese entertainment is fun to partake in and is a pretty fun hobby overall. And as you all know, I’m totally big on being passionate about your hobbies. I mean, damn, I wouldn’t have created this blog if I wasn’t. But remember, at the end of the day, hobbies are just hobbies. If you can’t take a moment to sit down and laugh at your own expense, and get extremely bothered by jokes, then it’s seriously time for you to dial back on how much you take your hobbies seriously.
This page is the perfect example of “all in good fun”: parody of an overly religious nut of a mother posting misinterpreted/stupid shit about anime and how evil it is. It’s simply hilarious.
Unfortunately, a good chunk of people seem to have allowed it to fly right past their naive heads because they’re way too fanatic for their own good (not surprising, the general anime pages on Facebook are filled with cringeworthy anime fans as it is!). Might not be so unfortunate after all though, because the maker of the page clearly has taken the liberty of just trolling the hell out of these particular self-acclaimed “otaku” and inciting their anger, and the serious comments from them are shaping up to be some of the most hilarious aspects about the page.
JUSTICE ON THE INTERNET
The most hilarious part is that all the people that have anime girl heads as their Facebook profile pics start getting in on the fun, and people still think they’re raving religious lunatics that hate anime no matter how obvious it is that they thoroughly enjoy anime. The fact that the page uses OBSCURE ANIME REFERENCES as basis for its trolling is already the most obvious sign that it’s just a joke. Like holy shit, most of those aren’t possible without being a pretty avid anime watcher to begin with.
This page is fucking gold. How do people fall for this? I mean, heck, the “chinese cartoonz” joke is like 5,000 years old, do people even internet? A lot of them don’t seem to be using the word “troll” in the correct sense either.
Well, at least the gullibility is funny in its own right, and not everyone is part of the dense brigade:

Dat feel (;_;):
Behind all of this fun though, it really is sort of depressing that the people who are taking this page too seriously, more-so the way they react, are pretty much the type of vocal minority that people associate anime fans with. RIP.
Then again, video game and sports fans can be the same level of cringeworthy as well (yes, sports fans are geeks too — just a different kind of geek that focuses on more physically-active hobbies).
