There’s a disturbing trend lurking in the anime blogosphere as of late…
Bloggers are getting married! Or are already married! And some even have joint blogs. What the hell is up with this junk? Everyone knows that REAL anime bloggers don’t need social lives, much less lifelong companions! We all have our figurines and DVD’s, so, really, there’s no need for that extra crapola of ‘relationships’.
Sadly, though, it seems some bloggers just don’t get this. We are in serious danger of being overtaken by this flood, and, before you know it, we might as well all just be the forum at BabyNames.com, occasionally commenting on anime while dispensing such wise knowledge as the proper diaper brand or the best meal to cook our husband/wife/other when they get home from work. The anime blogosphere is only for those of us who actually have time for anime, and don’t have this other stuff cluttering up our schedule and distracting us from the stuff that’s really important, a.k.a. anime. Time we could be spending analyzing harem girl x’s underwear color instead gets wasted on the inanities of everyday life.
But, nooo, we have to have these folks threatening our grand society, merrily undermining the holy rights an responsibilities of the anime blogger. Its unfair to all bloggers, and our readers, too – does the anime fan really want to have to suffer the writings of the married person? Its common knowledge that anime fans don’t actually form real-life relationships, so it is completely and totally unfair to subject us normal folks to your weird deviations from the norm.
We as bloggers are obligated to do something before this whole thing gets out of control and poisons the entire well.
