Anonymous said: What do you about that website Sevenstyle? Cause any article on that site about Free! is always homophobic

Sevenstyle has long been called the shitty ””otaku journalism”” blog that one visits when one feels that Sankaku Complex is just too high-class for them. I could spend ages harvesting the ridiculousness (holy shit for someone who claims to hate Free!, Seven sure posts a lot about Free!) but here are some highlights from recent entries in the tag.

I really like the attempt at a pseudo-intellectual writing style combined with a juvenile 9th-graders attempt at sick burns. It really gives the site its own voice. ‘A guidebook on Free!? I bet it’s a guide about BEIN GAY. HA that was a great burn. I better write it down.’

Terribliness of this text aside (although interesting to know that Seven considers himself the expert on how gay men or men in general are supposed to act), that’s not even an image from Free!. It’s from the prequel novel High-Speed where everyone is a kid.  (Also re:this dumb male otaku opinion that the Free boys ‘arent manly’ I just want to remind everyone about this post)

'homosexuals and their advocates'
I’m always amused at the amazing dichotomy between AW YEAH LOLIS TENTACLES BIG WOBBLY TITTIES FETISH PORN and the Fox News-esque gay panic these kind of sites have. It’s almost surreal.

Bonus fun:

why is there no anime for me, a straight male aged 15-30, that most neglected of demographics.

Free! is the no.1 threat to otaku bfs everywhere.

This blog lives when there are submissions/if I see something I think is relevant to the theme.
It’s mostly dead but I’m keeping it up as a testament to that historic moment when a bunch of shitty nerds got mad about a show that wasn’t made for them, because for as long as I live it’s never going to not be funny or depressing.

EDIT= There’s still season 2 which could potentially bring some fresh whining but I think most people have thankfully matured to the point where they realized that the existence of a show they don’t like isn’t going to kill them, and that anime companies are going to continue shitting out multiple versions of My Little Sister Can’t Possibly Be This Horny!!-type dreck every season regardless of how many shows not aimed at them exist.

Isn’t it amazing how a group of adult men can completely take over a show meant for little girls; making it virtually impossible to search or do anything related to the show without being exposed to over-sexualized, misogynistic, sexist crap, and they get a documentary that praises them for stepping outside of their perceived gender roles? Meanwhile 45% of the gaming community is comprised of women and I get dick pics and rape threats if I try and go on xbox live.

I think this is kind of relevant to the blog content; and I feel like the female following for anime is even greater than the female following for games yet its a demographic constantly belittled, shit on and undervalued. It’s cool that men were able to make their own space in a show meant for little girls, it’s a lot less cool that they pretty much overtook the entire space for little girls and get really entitled and shitty whenever anyone implies they arent the true demographic and shouldnt expect the creators to constantly cater to them. Meanwhile when women try to make their own space in just about anything the nerdrage comes down with a vengeance because how dare women have something we can’t be part of.Not to mention women have actually been part of the anime fan following for ages; hell most of the ones i know have been fans for decades and certainly a lot longer than all the little neckbeard shitnerds screaming about ‘women ruining anime’ when most of them probably aren’t even old enough to remember when VHS fansubs were a thing. -modT
