I agree with this one, elitist or not the vipe I get from this forum is that people generally focus on negative things.
I'm with both of you on this one


anyways:

you'd think fans of a show that promotes love and friendship would follow it's example
instead they be like : "you got that detail wrong" "I don't like that version that you do and you shouldn't either, you should like my favorite cause it's superior"
like do yall hear yourselves? [I mean across the board of the entire fandom everywhere I look I find people who do that and it irks me to no end ]

if I got something wrong heck that's my problem not yours maybe in an hour upon posting said mistake I'll realize and edit my post
you gotta give people a chance, don't jump on them as if they personally insulted you some would say oh their just passionate I say thats nitpicking to the highest degree there's a vast difference.

like how would you like it if I did that to you? [referring to people anywhere who do this ] not fun? well take a look in the mirror fellas
maybe worry about if you misspelled or made a mistake instead of looking at your fellow members to correct like a hunt in the wild.

I had to let that out cause lately it's what I see where ever I go and I had it up to the moon with it.
back to your regularly scheduled crystal bashing LOL [ no I didn't mean eternal I said crystal did I stutter?]

Agreed 100%. It reminds me of the time when a now inactive admin of this forum and her friend launched a grammar Nazi attack on one of my friends ' fanfics.

Sailor Moon's "love and friendship" extends only to those who agree unconditionally with her views and her course of actions. For everybody else, she has zero respect or compassion. I don't remember Sailor Moon saying to any of her opponents "Okay, so you don't like my version of Crystal Tokyo, so let's just live in separate countries and build our separate societies with mutual respect". Instead, she murdered all her opponents and refused to leave them even a square foot of land to live on.
Sailor Moon fans act exactly the same. As arrogant self-entitled elitists with zero respect to anybody with different opinions. You can blame them for a lot of things, but blaming them for not following Sailor Moon's example is silly.

Not surprisingly someone likes to open a can of worms in Facebook.

Honestly looking back at it I think both look good (the right being one of the only times Yukie Sato's art, if I have her name correctly, is decent), but Usagi's mouth in the Crystal picture is WAY too big.

At first I thought it wasn’t so bad considering other fandoms like Naruto and PLL usually got on my nerves a bit more, but now, I think the SM fandom is worse than those two. Sometimes, you just have to distance yourself from fandoms for a while to get away from the pessimistic bunch that wants to complain about every detail, every little flaw a character has, or just one bad thing a character did and then automatically everyone jumps on the hate bandwagon and forever spreads the hate. Sadly, “hate bandwagons” seem to be the new trend in big fandoms nowadays, so it’s really possible to escape unless you’re in a small fandom. That’s why I’m kind of okay with Wedding Peach having a smaller fanbase compared to other anime.

IKR? The people at #2 especially were the worst, to quote this guy named "TheBlueV3" on Deviantart, if they're going to nitpick/overanalyze a show or come off like they didn't pay attention to it or like they have the memory (and in the case of some people, intelligence) of Gilderoy Lockhart, to where they suck all the enjoyment out of it due to what they see as minor/major problems when there aren't any, what's the point? It's almost like they hate Sailor Moon, one of those toxic fans I mentioned, who also was doing some Mario stuff and even had a Dora profile pic for some time (even though Dora is for [BLEEP]ing babies) claimed supposedly they liked the first two seasons of Sailor Moon but at some point earlier claimed "I used to like Sailor Moon but not much anymore", but they still have Sailor Moon fanart, and such, it certainly doesn't sound like they still like it, why do they even watch it? They may as well just give up on watching the original anime instead of annoyingly bitch about how "the Inners are useless/weak" or "Moon is a dumb idiot" or something every time the Inners make an appearance in battle or something. This also is giving Sailor Moon's fandom a bad reputation, newcomers might see it contain nothing but idiotic nitpickers who ragequit and complain at episodes 24/7 and 365/366, if they can't stop viewing the show like this, especially that dumbass idiot who claimed "they should have gotten rid of the Inners after the first season", they shouldn't even be branded as a Sailor Moon fan. I'm getting tired of all that negativity.

Yeah, those people who are into the "hate bandwagon fads" are really toxic. It nearly destroyed my love for Sailor Moon when I was younger. All because they were so nasty about my opinions.
same here, they are the worst, those kinda fans seem to hate the franchise more than love if at all

like I have my complaints but I also give the series it's praises balance both not just all good or all bad

call out the bad when it deserves it, but going frame by frame looking for something to complain about is the most pathetic use of anyones time
oh hah hah lets make fun of the toei animators for being tired and overworked and underpaid isn't it funny hahah, shame on "fans" who do that

If I was permanently tired, overworking, and underpaid, yet saw my boss riding Porsche and Ferrari every day to relieve "stress", I would quit that job and found another one. Japan is in terrible and ever increasing need for workers in almost all sectors of ecomony, so there is no real excuse to stick to a really bad job in Japan these days.

IKR? The animators are people too. Despite my hatred for Crystal 1-2's animation, I never said I hated the animators, I was more mad at Toei for not doing quality control to make sure they looked good, and it's in the age where stuff can digitally be fixed and have a "Ctrl + Z" option.
