anohana-fans-1

Anime otaku have been comparing the merits of being a K-ON! fan versus those of being a Madoka or Ano Hana fan, and have found K-ON! more than wanting.

Ano Hana fans:

anohana-fans-1
anohana-fans-2

Madoka fans:

madoka-fans-1
CA370440

K-ON! fans:

k-on-fans-1
k-on-fans-2

Such logic seems hard to argue with, although whether K-ON! fans actually have any interest in 3D females by that stage is another matter.

    It's funny because it's true! XD

    I have to say though, looking at these pictures (I know I've heard about it and seen it in anime) But it really gives you proof the them fans really are for all ages. Just look at the 2nd to last pic, you can see guy maybe over 30 or 40

    It's not the Creepiness I admire but the fact that these people can stick to what they like, in Japan of all places, where social stigma can rival being in jail, So Kudos! you sick...old...men..you...yey?

    Hahaha

    Aside from being creepy you definitely have to admire these guys, takes individuality to the max! Your an idiot if you think any of these guys are doing this cause they want to "belong" like some shitty emo kid. THEY Do what they like and don't bother other people, sure there are a few that do, but let's face it, not a single branch or twig of society is without trouble makers

    So Creepy Otakus you have my respect! *Bows*

    Somehow, when I read such comments about individuality (*), I always recall ED of the 18th ep of the Inukami.

    To understand what I mean, watch first this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkZgqa4x7TE (it's only 1:30, bear with it)

    then watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMCcKXzpOcU

    (*) "eccentric" is a better word.

    Madoka is twisted but attracts normal people,

    K-ON! is normal but attracts twisted people.

    But then again looking at this crazy world, where is the pleasure of sanity.

    Stranger still....

    "K-On!" was dubbed in english and airs on the Disney channel.

    "Madoka" will probably become a Tarantino or Zack Snyder live action series on Starz or HBO and be more artsy than "Sin City"

    Or you know.... Funimation TV channel.

    They show everything including cursing and nudity and death and violence. LOVE that channel. Can't wait to see what the next season's offerings are going to be. Even the English dubbing is surprisingly good most of the time.

    As for the demographics, I don't think it matters. Both AnoHana and Madoka has the same crazed male fanbase. And the types of shows K-On (slice of life), Madoka (Magical Girl) and AnoHana (Romance/Drama), I think are pretty conducive towards the female audience. I honestly do not think there's a singular type of fan or gender who likes these shwos. They're pretty well liked by a wide variety of fans.

    "I honestly do not think there's a singular type of fan or gender who likes these shwos. They're pretty well liked by a wide variety of fans."

    I would normally agree, but do you really think grown men who watch magical girl animes (not madoka) watch it for the story and the magic?

    I don't think so.

    ._.

    Choosing between Madoka and K-ON! is like choosing between two bowls of crap, only difference is the smell.

    Not due to the series being horrible, but due to the sheer amount of stupid and undeserved hype over moe.

    I don't think these pics are fair.
    The Ano Hana and Madoka fans just look like ordinary people doing ordinary things. The pics of the K-ON fans are bad examples...

    But the real reason why Madoka fans > K-ON fans is,
    Madoka has a mix of type-A and type-B otaku.
    K-ON is dominated by creepier type B otaku.

    ^i think it is fair enough
    you said it yourself, K-ON is dominated by creepy type-B otaku (make it 99% of K-On fans)...

    therefore finding normal K-ON fans pictures is as hard as finding needle in the middle of ocean...

    Very true, You couldn't have stated it better. To be honest though, what about K-ON made it so big? I don't see anything special about it... All there is, is moe blobness which is in almost any anime...

    The scary thing is that's the very thing that attracts people.

    Since it's both cute and a slice of life, there's no significant plot that anyone needs to 'catch up' on, and anyone can pick it up at any episode that it airs.

    It's like Farmville in the sense that you don't need to be a hardcore otaku/gamer to pick it up and it has that small charm to keep you going. At least that's my take on it.

    The difference is that Farmville is a terrible game and K-On! is, at the very least, a decently animated and not-at-all-bad show that gets a tad too much attention.

    True, I won't lie, I've watched it. The first season was decent, the second season was "milking" as to put it nicely. Yes, the characters are cute.. but I don't know about becoming a devoted fan... I can't even connect to any of the characters... Plus, I can't say that it had much of anything to keep me watching like Madoka did...

    As far as comparing it to farmville.. no clue, don't play it.

    I only watch K-ON!! for songs or just bored
    maybe cos' of the songs/the characters are moe!

    That's the scariest thing. I myself saw the first season with no particular urgency to finish it, and found it very well animated but otherwise pretty forgettable. Seeing how people get crazy over that show (or madoka for that matter) is scary because I don't understand at all.

    Actually this is untrue I know a good amount of perfectly normal young japanese women that love K-ON! as much as the other people in these photos.

    I think there are lots of K-On fans. Some people are clueless about this (no offence, really, there's nothing wrong with not knowing a few specific things) but K-On if very female friendly.

    It's like how people think only creepy middle aged men like AKB but really, most of their fans nowadays are probably females. They just don't grab the spotlight if you know what I mean... if you don't, just look at the last picture again.

    But if someone hasn't seen K-On or Madoka, and you tell that person you like them, they'd be more creeped-out by Madoka because it's a mahou shoujo show. K-On is music so, unlike this site, amongst the Japanese public it has a much better reputation.

    Simply because Madoka > K-ON. :P

    However, I find K-ON fans (rather than the anime itself) extremely amusing with their 'dedication'. XD

    AnoHana is good compared to most other anime this season, but I didn't know it's big enough to have dedicated fans. That place looks like a Mac Store.

    yup. I love Madoka too, as a normal K-On fan, I highly recommend it. *though* for people who think Madoka has less creepy otaku fans, get them to check the channel for ecchi pics of it. I'm not against it, I just think the sheer volume is... astounding
    for an original series which aired only recently.

    Pretty one sided, I've seen some madoka fans on here and other forums that reach the level of the licking picture with madoka...
