Not my cringe! How else will I make My Hero Academia X Five Nights at Freddy's X Boxboy fanfiction!?

The MHA fanbase has completely turned me off from even looking in that show's general direction, if you're above the age of 12 and are still into FNAF there's a problem, and what the skreeonk is a Boxboy

I love MHA :shrug: All Might’s my role model as a dad

Just wish it wasn’t so hard to talk people into eating my hair :mad:

I'm part of the MHa fanbase, and tbh, it's pretty tame compared with others.
The worst I've seen is the Rule 34 stuff, which is unavoidable, and character bashing, which is something that happens in every fandom.

All in all, it's fairly normal
All houses have the same. Roof. Floor. Walls. People yelling at you that they're calling the police because you broke into their house. It's only when you give them love that they truly become Home

Being turned off from something you could potentially enjoy because of weird people on the internet is pretty cringe, I mean we had that approach for everything nobody would even be on this site to begin with

I don't know, MHA doesn't appeal to me all that much for whatever reason; I've heard it's good and all but for whatever reason I don't feel a big need to get into it
Maybe things will change in a few years, all the Eva fans acting like Pacific Rim was a ripoff of NGE turned me off Evangelion back when PR came out in 2013 but I wound up watching it and really liking it only two years later

I dislike MCU because annoyng people I knew irl if that's different?

On the subject of MHA, I tried getting into it. Really disliked the protagonist though so I quit halfway through episode 3, it was also pretty boring to me despite how much I liked the concept. If someone who wasn't a whiny little female dog was the focus I'd probably like it.
Drink 32oz of water a day, exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, take your meds as prescribed, eat healthy (count calories), reach out to your support network when you need them, practice basic hygiene, learn from your mistakes, forgive yourself for your failures, admit when you're wrong, be humble when you're right, be nice to animals, and try again.

The fact that this has 12K views is proof that the fandom can do better.

-Showing zero effort to properly pronounce Japanese names (it’s really not that hard)
-Saying something random like HK was chosen as some weird stunt with no sources.

The Godzilla bubble of YouTube is pretty bad. Basically consists of news from twitter, surface level reviews, clickbait about the Monsterverse, washed up 25+ year olds playing with toys and making movies/shorts out of it, and anger-fueled videos desperately trying to tear down critics/the anime trilogy/the topical thing to hate in the fandom. The latter remind me of the million "THE LAST JEDI IS A CINEMATIC FAILURE" videos from people who only watch blockbusters.

You know for once, I agree with you completely. I'm a massive Star Wars fan, but I've almost completely drifted away from the fandom because of the idiots who constantly spew garbage like Geeks + Gamers. It's really hard to enjoy the new movies without one of those retards popping up in your recommended.

Then you have the far other siders like HelloGreedo and StarWarsExplained who literally brown nose Kat Kennedy 24/7.

It's a lose/lose for them. Disney successfully filleted the fandom.

"The fandom" filleted itself.

Damn, I used some kaiju toys in an assignment for a cinematography class a couple of years ago. I had no idea I was washed up...

As long as you weren't smashing them together claiming it was stop motion, you're fine.

No, that I haven't done since the 90s. ;)
