Fujoshi vs Seiyuu

my-replica-cant-be-this-cute

The refusal of an excited fujoshi audience to even acknowledge female seiyuu whilst the same crowd hysterically greets their male counterparts with an ear-splitting shriek of enthusiasm has been noted with some disapproval by fans.

The event highlighted as an example of this phenomenon is the Tales of Festival 2009, an event centred on Namco Bandai’s Tales series of RPGs, which have long proved popular with female gamers for their high levels of bishonen content.

As can be seen by comparing the audience reception of male versus female seiyuu, the fujoshi present seem less than enthused by the efforts of the female seiyuu, snubbing them completely:

One observer on 2ch summarises the difference in reaction between the sexes:

Otaku

Male seiyuu: Domo!
Ota: Wooooooooo!!!
Female seiyuu: Domo!
Ota: Woooooooooooooooooo!!!

Fujoshi

Male seiyuu: Domo!
Fu: Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Female seiyuu: Domo!
Fu: …

Another observer puts it more succinctly: “Whichever gender they are seiyuu fans are a creepy bunch!”

    I actually feel pretty bad for the female seiyuu in that video. Seriously. At least applaud

    Otakus can tend to be bros, Fujoshi are probably mostly bitches.
    Kinda shows with the same gender comparison.

    Hey it's not nice to be bunching every fujoshi in the same bag either, though its true many of them are heartless hypocrites.
    Women in general have around the same proportion of bitches as the fujoshi do, and I'm not being sexist or anything here, face the facts girls.

    I'm a fujoshi and I have fujoshi bros (sisses?) in Australia, America and Japan. All of us - especially my japanese fujoshi sisses, love female characters and seiyuu just as much as we love male characters.
    Hell, I'm a straight girl who'd go gay for Rie Kugimiya in a heartbeat and a have a ton of waifus.
    There are tons of dumbass fujoshi, but they've got nothing on the dumbass male otaku there are that smash all their goods when a female character looks at a male character for more than a nano-second.

    You go gay for Kugimiya and I for Hideyoshi, but it's my impression that fujoshi go all "KYAAAA!!" only for feminine men? Or then can I safely say that fujoshi are gay to begin with?
    I wonder how many are there into Fist of the North Star male chars.
    I can simpathize with you, not based on anything but opinion though. But for males there's hardly any moe guys to go gay for, so sry for that.

    On a sidenote, male otaku brain have something in common with their own anuses: one-way only. But you can bet none of us here will go that far if a seiyuu we like wants to have a boyfriend. That narrowmindedness is exclusive from Japan I think.

    No it's not "exclusive" to Japan, check out all the actor followings going on in Hollywood and stop trying to make yourself feel better by insulting Japan.

    I havent really seen that much Macross but moe is often in the eye of the beholder.

    I think Phoenix Wright is totally moe, for example.

    This is why I despise them so.. They go around ranting about how male/male couples are this and that and if you don't support them, you're sexist or some shit. Yet this is how they react to girls?

    What makes it worst is that female non-fujoshi otaku get that fujoshi stereotype from from everyone. :(

    QFT...

    Whichever gender you are, the tastes of both run rampant like the Black Plague...

    I've been to both sides and have actually read some "Mpreg" fanfics from "Devil May Cry", "Castlevania", and even "Tales of Symphonia" and "Tales of the Abyss"...

    The yaoi parings from the latter range from best friends to father/son incest with a side of mpreg~

    Please, let's not be a-holes. Fujoshi can be bros (sis) too. Just like there are stupid delusional fanboys who embarrass us all there are annoying screeching fangirls.

    And before everyone votes me down, I'm a fujoshi and have met tons of my female comrades. From my personal experience, they not only get excited over female seiyuu (like I did when May'n and Megu came to the US) they are awesome people.

    I'm not sure how it's in Japan though.

    I've had first-hand experience with fujoshi in Japan and I know I bunch of them, and they all loved female characters/seiyuu too. Why there's so many that don't at this event I cant say, unless this fandom is mostly bitches or something. I dont know much about Tales Of so I don't really know

    Well at the moment we're cheifly dealing with the fujoshi of Japan. And in this case, they came across very much as a lot of catty, jealous biches. I'm honestly surprised they'd act that way (in public anyway).

    Conformity perhaps? 80% of the crowd didn't show any desire to cheer, the 20% thinks they are alone and gives up as well to not stick out in a crowd?

    More like most otaku know you need a central male voice in order to make a good anime/game.

    ...

    Yes, that means K-on! is not a good anime.

    @Anon06:48 Bullshit. Generic harem protagonist-kun and generic light novel protagonist-kun both need to die off.

    Nothing wrong with male characters but they aren't essential to making a good anime, and nothing says they need to be the lead voice.
    I think railgun is a good example for you maybe. Sure, index has a central male lead but in railgun he's really just a side character that pops up occasionally. The rest of the cast is pretty much all female, and it's an action story-driven anime unlike the slice of life stuff mentioned above.

    I'd also point to stuff like Haibane Renmei for good dramatic story telling about a primarily female cast.

    What is? It is a well established fact that positive emotions associated with anime-based media have alot to do with sexual attraction, even if we refuse to acknowledge that. Womans have the right to fap (shlick) to their favorite gay males too.

    To put simply, it is big amount of sexy bitches and dudes that make anime awesome. Be it for men or women.

    I'm a fujoshi myself, and i do not aprove of such behaviour.
    I respect people for what they do. If a seiyuu is good, i don't care wether they're male or female.
    On second thought maybe the female fans there didn't like the female character; many (young male) characters in yaoi stuff have female seiyuu, so i think this was centered on the character and not the seiyuu herself just because she's a woman. Anyways, not nice, at all.

    BUT, truth is, a fangirl is way more scarier than most otaku guys. And japanese fans of anything tend to go to the extremes, so yeah..

    By ourselves we are not that scary or dangerous, but in relatively large numbers...i'd run if i were you ._.;

    (Nothing to be proud of, really, but in Japan it's probably worst.)
