Title: You know you're a FAnboy if...
Post by: Sintax Error on May 13, 2004, 06:01:22 PM
I got an idea. If you ever seen that Blue Collar Comedy Tour thing "You know you're a redneck if..." let's do one here, but about fanboys, I'll start off.

You know you're a fanboy if you own more than 3 DBZ dvds.

You know you're a fanboy if someone mentions Zionism and you think of Space Colonies and mobile suits.

You know you're a fanboy if you base decisions you make in relationships with people off of anime.

But at least this way the Fanime community gets to contribute to a list that's unique to this board. With that in mind...

You know you're a fanboy if your idea of a great time on a Saturday night consists of staying home to watch Toonami and Adult Swim Action and building that brand new Master Grade 1/100 Strike Gundam model kit that you just imported from Japan. ...Yeah, I'm a loser. So what?!
Title: You know you're a FAnboy if...
Post by: KimaLucifer on May 13, 2004, 08:26:16 PM
recomet, no.

 Those that watch CN Toonami are the not-so anime nerds. I learned it off fanboy bebop/


 -and I'm not a boy so this doesn't apply to me >:D
Title: You know you're a FAnboy if...
Post by: swordofthebezerk on May 13, 2004, 08:30:33 PM
Yes Fanboy Bebop explained everything to me in great detail hahaha. Yeah when you base you're whole anime preferences off of what you see on Cartoon Network you aren't really impressing anyone.
Title: You know you're a FAnboy if...
Post by: platinum edge on May 13, 2004, 08:41:45 PM
You know you're a fanboy when you prepare for conventions by training yourself to watch 13 hours of anime in one sitting...

Pfft! I know that! Watching anime on Toonami/AS is just an example. The point is, you'd rather stay at home Saturday evening watching anime instead of going out with your friends. If it makes you feel better, I can change the example to "staying home to watch the latest anime dvds you just got from Suncoast" or "watching fansubbed anime downloaded off the computer". Besides, Toonami and AS aren't a bad thing; they give us free anime! Lord knows that I can't afford to keep buying new anime dvds and graphic novels (and import gundam models).

... What's Fanboy Bebop?

Anyway, here's another one: You know you're a fanboy if you actually spend the money and time on those naughty anime character resin kits.

And that's why you guys are (for the most part) considered heroes by nerds everywhere!

Evangelion ReDeath? I heard about that; it sounds pretty funny. Can I only see that at conventions too?

Hey guys, I actually have Fanboy Bebop, ReDeath, and Jubei Powers(their first, and less known of attempt) hosted on my server. If anyone is interested in the URL, please PM me and we can worx it out :) The URL has to remain confidential to everyone I give it to though! Hit me up if you're interested.



...you know you're a fan(girl) when you went to the trouble to find the Studio Sokodei movies and uploaded them to your server to share.

Hey that one is understandable because usually you make your own cosutume but not your 'normal' clothes. I'd be far more upset if anything I made got ruined than if something store bought that was worth a lot more got ruined.

You don't have to be out of an anime to have blue hair. I've had blue hair (along with purple, red, green etc) and so have a lot of my friends...

Its not the hair color, its the attatude of the girls that I like.  The only reason anime girls have weard hair colors is to help with the ID. If all the girls had the same color type it would be hard keep who is who and whatnot.

lol....I wouldn't have listed it as "professional references" unless I was a Dept. Head or a member of Senior Staff. 8)...As regular staff, I'd list as part of "hobbies & side interests", since Senior/Dept Directors work all year-round. Whereas regular staff can't commit as much time and only work for a few days out of the year.
