    I stated something like this in the anime forum recently. It is much more difficult to be an otaku now. Used to be a tight knit subculture. Now that it is less underground it almost means nothing to just watch anime since everyone does. It is way harder to be the otaku who has seen it all.

    I think it's come to a point where it's getting a little too far for its own good.
    Some people I know, while dear friends, are just...a little too ecstatic over some things now. They craze over things that I personally would thing of as strange or out there. That is however, in some respect I've changed a bit as well. However, I believe some of it gets out of hand. But for the most part, it's still in an evolutionary stage that I think given the right circumstances can turn out well. All up to how people address the issue I suppose.

    Fandom now is more complicated, some fans are a little bit exaggerated and can't separate reality from fiction
