“You otaku poser, you only watch the fad anime”, “go watch something other than Naruto and One Piece” do you want to see Japanese otakus fighting over american cartoons? There are these types of discussions in the west among anime fans when a person says their list of anime they watched.

Others say that the game would have a fan translation. Did you see? Japanese fans are just like any other type of fan.
