    That's certainly an oversimplification but this is where the kind of elitism comes from. The problem is when a lot of the elitists are actually stupid people watching smart anime to make themselves feel smart, or so they think. Of course this kind of thing can only work in a self-affirming (aka mob thinking) fashion in which a community of self appointed elitists define quality. This isn't just true in anime, but almost every hobby really. To make this distinction, this group needs to raise itself above "popular opinion", but yes, in the end they create their own brand of popular opinions.

    There's a small chance people from this group know what they're talking about, but in my anecdotal experience like any group of fools needs to demean others in order to give them credibility. I've received plenty of private messages from pretentious hygiene products telling me why I am totally wrong for bashing their deep work or liking something pedestrian. Of course, most can't really explain what they think being the simplest of sentences, so there's that.

    Tl;dr Don't be a hipster.
    You know, this kind of place does exist. It's called anidb. Reading few posts there makes you lose faith in the anime community faster than hearing about Infinite Stratos' sales figures. Because at least, "those godamned otakus" support the industry in their own way. While "those hipsters" sucks the fun out of the hobby.

    Today I learnt a bunch of people in the local anime circles all think Nasu works are pure H-material.....

    What the hell....

    I'm beginning to think I'm of a very small minority that actually appreciates Nasu's writing. People seem to either want lashings of supernatural action or amusing sex.

    *facepalm*

    Well, there definitely is an absence of a significant movie in the near future. Shinkai should fill that void nicely. Following up Garden of Words will be quite a task.

    So the author of Moribito and Erin won the international Hans Christen Anderson award.

    Someone out there can apparently appreciate a genuinely good author. About damn time.
