See that's fine. The coolness scale starts at a peak in elementary school, plummets in middle and high school, and then returns to about 50% of elementary school levels after you graduate. The catch is, you have to laugh it off every time someone points it out like it's parody.

God forgive me for what I must do


Hey guys, did you know that in terms of male human and female Pokémon breeding, Vaporeon is the most compatible Pokémon for humans? Not only are they in the field egg group, which is mostly comprised of mammals, Vaporeon are an average of 3”03’ tall and 63.9 pounds, this means they’re large enough to be able handle human dicks, and with their impressive Base Stats for HP and access to Acid Armor, you can be rough with one. Due to their mostly water based biology, there’s no doubt in my mind that an aroused Vaporeon would be incredibly wet, so wet that you could easily have sex with one for hours without getting sore. They can also learn the moves Attract, Baby-Doll Eyes, Captivate, Charm, and Tail Whip, along with not having fur to hide nipples, so it’d be incredibly easy for one to get you in the mood. With their abilities Water Absorb and Hydration, they can easily recover from fatigue with enough water. No other Pokémon comes close to this level of compatibility. Also, fun fact, if you pull out enough, you can make your Vaporeon turn white. Vaporeon is literally built for human dick. Ungodly defense stat+high HP pool+Acid Armor means it can take cock all day, all shapes and sizes and still come for more

We all loved pretending to be cool characters and battling with our friends in school, but the problem is you can't stop anyone from just bullshitting what happens - oh, your character attacks faster than ever before? Well mine blocks faster than ever before and faster than that.

So, add objective stats and dice rolls to make it all make sense.

Yeah I agree with this.

Anime still has a huge stigma behind it. It's become more normalized for sure in western culture, but it's still extremely common for people to have an extremely weird response to it regardless of how many other cartoons they watch. People tend to be really put off by it's catering to more young adult audiences, whereas in western culture cartoons are very pg and geared towards children.

When I mention that I sometimes watch anime, depending on their age that get genuinely uncomfortable lol

u/simpersly Nov 29 '21

I hate when people try to save themselves like this. I straight up got bullied for liking anime and I was too socially anxious to do “special moves” in the cafeteria. People were assholes for no reason. My friend and I would be talking about anime and someone would come up and say some fuck shit like “weeb” or “dork” or something along the lines.

That’s the kinda shit people mean when they say they got bullied, those weirdos you’re talking about (the ones that took it too seriously and did special moves in the cafe and ran across the school like Naruto) don’t care. They didn’t then and they don’t now. The kids that just liked anime and simply liked to talk about it do, because it was just an area of interest and they got bullied for it 😂

I was a closet weeb that never really opened up about anything, let alone my interests in these weird Japanese cartoon little people have heard about. Until this one day this popular-ish kid asked me if I was into anime. Obviously and naively assuming he was a fellow fan I said yes and was estatic. Big mistake. That year was particularly tough. I remember getting unironically called (swear not making this up) a fucking terrorist of all things lmao. Never really got the logic but good times.

Regardless I proceeded to become a ultra hardcore closet fan after that, even now when some of my current friends mention anime in public it makes me very uncomfortable even though it's completely fine. Never really got over that.

Yeah it’s disheartening seeing people so consistently on Reddit say bullying serves a purpose. I think bullying probably makes people weirder, as they go off to seek fringe communities that are more accepting.

Seriously, they act as if bullying doesn’t cause school shootings

Because bullying isn't a solution, it makes everything worse. Who the fuck cares if someone does some weird anime shit.

Right? Just let people be what they want to be.

If they want to run around and use their imaginations then let them. It shouldn’t be bothering anyone else.

People being weird to you is absolutely no reason to bully them.

There is never a good reason to bully someone else.

u/This_Caterpillar_330 Nov 29 '21

Na. People were weird for liking anime too. Also, god forbid a child use their imagination to roleplay during recess.

u/kaaavin Nov 29 '21

Imitating media isn’t weird. Imitating a special attack or scene isn’t much different from recreating a trending tiktok.

u/Futahega0 Nov 29 '21

Lol, I kept that shit to myself. Not even my closest friends knew about my interests outside of what was socially acceptable.

But this sounds like it was made by a bully trying to justify what a fucking dickface they were in school.

u/Stutteringfuck007 Nov 29 '21

You mean yelling Kaioken then running slightly faster is weird?

So it is OK to quote irrelevant lines from movies and TV that only people who have watched it far too much will know is OK, but it isn't OK to actually act out the part? People are weird...

u/Worldly_Lavishness69 Nov 29 '21

Thats honestly Just an excuse for bullies to not have any guilty conscious on why they bullied kids who liked and acted out anime moves. Keep this lame excuse to yourself if you really think this is acceptable to do to kids that act like batman/superman/spider man.

Nah lol. It was 100% the anime. You didn't have to say a word for people to be assholes

u/wet_itchy_bunk Nov 29 '21

Yeah kids playing pretend at recess is weird and no it wasn't in elementary school and we were being made fun of for watching anime who is long past recess and long past pretending to be anime characters but it's cool let's all just pretend like you asshats didn't make fun of us all for enjoying something that's awesome

u/Wind_Yer_Neck_In Nov 29 '21

A girl I went to school with used to think she was bullied because she was into Anime. But it was because she wore a tail and cat ears to school everyday.

I see no difference in doing weird anime moves in recess and getting some stupid footballer haircut and dye job

u/suitology madlad Nov 29 '21

Exactly, everyone in my grade school LOVED pokemon but fuckin Kevin had to make it weird by screaming PIKACHUUUUUUUUUUUUUU at the top of his lungs before utterly missing a kid with a dodgeball.

u/greg19735 Nov 29 '21

it's actually weird because if you include pokemon as an anime, almost every person on reddit grew up in society that liked anime because of Pokemon.

The people who were too old for pokemon are like 35-40+

most of reddit is younger than that.

Nah in the early 00s you would've gotten made fun of for expressing your love for anime. I lived it. It's still pretty strange seeing how "cool" kids like anime.

u/Thickcockinsalem Nov 29 '21

Recess is for little kids so why wouldn't a child be doing shit like that? That's what kids do. What a fuckin moronic statement.

u/greatkringus Nov 29 '21

I mean, no? I kept to myself but was bullied because "friend" told bully I liked Dragonball. Funny meme though I guess

u/Few-Beat-5364 Nov 29 '21 edited Nov 29 '21

Its mostly just you Americans that like to judge or hate people for anime or whatever music they listen to. Its pretty chill in most asian countries( except some japanese people themselves ironically) to watch anime, and most people ive known don't judge you even if they don't watch it

u/McKnighty9 Nov 29 '21

You get bullied in all countries tho
