As I’m sure many of you have noticed there has always been this weird divide in the anime community. Sometimes this divide can be due to shows, voice actors, or just feeling like people want to one up one another. But I want to know how would you solve this issues if you could.
For me how I would solve them is by just trying to have people be nicer to each other. Have people understand that others are going to have different opinions and have people try and learn to listen to others.
The anime community can be a wonderful place but sometimes it can really suck when you feel like you are afraid of voicing your opinion or liking a particular show because of what others have to say about it.
The only way that we can help change this community is by helping ourselves or changing ourselves and our behavior. Changing others can be difficult but we can change how we interact and react to others. If someone says something about how you feel about a show or character let them know that you respect their opinion and you understand what they are saying. A step further is that if they respect your opinion before voicing their own be sure to thank them.
These small steps I feel can really help the community. Plus try not to give those that are toxic to the community power since it will just cause bigger issues. Trust me I know that this can be difficult especially when someone hurts you but try and show that individual or people that you are better than that and you won’t stoop to their level.
But how would you help the anime community. These are just some small things I would do and I’m sorry if this is jumbled up. I literally just thought of this topic. But I can’t wait to read your ideas.
