Lately I have noticed a… peculiar trend amongst the guest types for most anime based conventions. The guests in question are usually the YouTube Stars and Starlettes that we folk to for all things anime related. Yet a sad realization is that most of them are some of the more vulgar and gaudy ones out there. Yet here they are being catered to like royalty. Now I am in no way or shape upset, that exposure is great for their brand, their channel and follower base. What it is not so great is showing the masses that this is what we pass for ‘good’ content for anime YouTubers.
This picture that is painted is honestly far from flattering and only goes to tell this mass that, “In order to be here, you have to be the most vulgar and trashiest person around.” Many of these YouTubers have a sense of—air about themselves. This ‘high and mighty’ attitude as it is often referred to, can be quite off-putting. Frankly these are the guest that I careless about and wish that they weren’t promoted as a guest of honor or esteemed guest(s).
Now sure, the more positively, influencing YouTuber do get some appreciation; just not as much as the vulgar ones do. The culture that needs to most promoting is the more logical and professional one—not the party animal one. Personally, I just cannot stand the content that is made and promoted by them. Thus it sort of makes me feel out of place when seeing all of this… curious creators being promoted. It just feels like we are leaving out the very good bits and pieces in a much larger community.
Now just bear in mind that this is, again, my own opinion. These creators have worked their butts off to get where they are today. They cater to a group of individuals who love this more—colorful content than others. I personally just wish that conventions would realize that not everyone enjoys their content.
