Honestly, I often proclaims myself as elitist. Just because I don't want to be lumped together to those weebs.

So, what do you think about this?

This is actual reason why I proclaim myself as elitist. I want to judge anime and manga objectively, not let my feelings clouded my review.

And I'm a weird person.
I never drops anime. I watch/read and complete every anime and manga despite I completely hate them.


EDIT #2:

Elitist in my opinion:
"A person who loves to entertain themselves with anime and manga just because it is interesting instead of because it is trending/popular, and always TRY to support ORIGINAL CREATOR by buy, donate, or share their content."

^THAT'S ME.

To become an elitist is to become a superior otaku.

Only through following the teachings of the sagely Big Dawg can one hope to achieve elitism in the anime world.

Spoiler

In all seriousness what the word "elitist" in the anime community brings to mind is someone who calls out others on some menial details such as whether they watch subs or dubs, whether they stream or torrent, what media player they use to watch and so on. I guess you could also define it as someone who's moved far past entry level and only indulges themselves with highly refined material. It is typically used to single out certain individuals for both good and bad reasons.

Elitist? If you like Anime that has actual quality, why settle for less? I don't think not eating trash off the ground makes me a food elitist...

[can someone raise my bulli level now? I am indirectly insulting people harshly.]

Why on earth would anyone want to be considered an "elitist"? So they could compare e-penises on /a/?

Digibro actually did an entire video on this. You might wanna check it out.

Why do you need to proclaim yourself as elitist?
To prove that that you aren't weebs?
To prove that that you have better taste than them?
Maybe it's true, but it's seem like you define yourself as a different type of weebs :3
"Evolved Weeb" I think :3 (but still a weeb)


p/s: sorry, my English is still not good enough :3 maybe I made some mistakes :3

Wouldn't an anime elitest just be a superior weeaboo? Not that it matters because it isn't like we are hurting anyone by being weaaboos lol

/r/weeabootales would leave you questioning that statement. Then again, I just hope that's none of us are far enough down the rabbit hole to end up on there!

Yeah, maybe I should rephrase that. I don't think any of us are hurting anyone form being weaaboos.

Oh yeah! I'd totally forgotten about that sub. With good reason: I'd unsubscribed to it a long time back.

Yeah, I jumped ship right around when I realized most of the stories posted there were just depictions of incredibly socially-awkward young people who grew up with a shitty home life. I know someone like that; hell, I might've fit that mold myself at some point. Following that revelation, the stories would only induce sorrow; I couldn't bring myself to read them anymore.

Still, there were a few that I genuinely enjoyed, my favorite being the one where the weeb's dad made him work at a Chinese restaurant. After an initial struggle, our viewpoint character and the head chef broke him down and built him up under the guise of martial arts training. Think The Karate Kid, only with Kung-pow chicken and anime T-shirts.

By time the tale concluded, the weeb had been thoroughly humbled, and transformed into a functional member of modern society. As an added bonus, he'd even picked up a few basic cooking skills. Musing on it now, I can't help but feel a genuine smile spreading across my face.

Typically when I think of elitists it's typically in a shitty way. Elitist has always held a negative conotation to it. I expect any form of elitist to be a cunt, I typically stop caring about their opinion right away and even distance myself.

That being said not every elitist is a buttmunching, piece of shit that thinks they are holier than thou and everything they say is to be taken as fact. But, almost all elitsts I have come across (both anime, and non-anime related) have been asshats who don't know how to properly enjoy something without shoving their opinion down everyones throat every 5 seconds.

Haha! Unlike you casual plebs I'm 1/36th Japanese. I'd stick around to educate you on how poor your taste in anime is but I have a reddit thread to shitpost.

Having high standards for the anime you watch isn't a bad thing. It's not a bad thing to be picky with entertainment. But shitting on other people because they watch things you regard as bad or you don't like is just shitty behaviour. That's what an elitists is for me. (In a pejorative way)

Don't break the silence. There is nothing to save.

Yeah, nothing wrong with having high standards. I don't want to waste my time watching something shitty.

I think the point of the video isn't "you can't enjoy these shows because they're good lol", but that you shouldn't put yourself in a position of being better than someone else because their taste isn't as "refined" as yours, mentally masturbating over how classy you are: don't show off.
But digibro is the weeabooist and can't get this across without generalising massively and being condescending.

The fact that you're asking this implies egalitarianism.

Ah, still. Guy has a point.

@biokouwr: Honestly man, I couldn't care less. It wouldn't matter if you strictly watched classics or were a seasonal garbage-eater; the only people who genuinely care about your taste in anime are other elitists.
