When you look at certain reports on any kind of fandom, you usually get the bad gist of it. You hear how fans are some of the worst or weirdest people on the planet. Fans are sometimes called delusional. But a recent anime adaptation of a sports manga shows the good side of fandom and how a hobby leads to challenge and growth.

Ever felt like there’s too much anime and manga to follow? You’re not alone as Anime News Network covers the issue of anime burnout in their podcast, ANNCast.
This is totally worth your attention as burnout happens to everyone. It’s amazing to see how fans can do reviews of episodes and/or chapters on a daily basis. You have to wonder what keeps their flames going.
Some fans say that they want their lives to be filled with anime/manga, but too much of anything is a bad thing.
Sometimes you gotta take a step back to take a step forward, right?

"What I did was wrong…I’m not going to ask you to forgive me after all that’s happened…There’s one thing…just one thing i want to ask of you. I don’t care if you make the entire world your enemy. Even if every other creature alive comes to hate you, your father will always be on your side. So please, promise me that you’ll come back!"
Parenting is a rough job, but are there times where parents stop and think about how their children can be capable of being cruel? Case in point - a young teenage girl who committed tons of bloodshed for a cause personally worth fighting for. Attack on Titan’s second story arc focused on a Female Titan that was determined to kidnap the main character, Eren Jaeger, for the sake of killing mankind. Her story reflects a world where society forces people to be more individualistic and possibly fall into ruin.
HUGE SPOILER ALERT after the jump for fans not familiar with Titan or starting out with the series.

Looks like the dark side has some unique cookies. Some interesting research has come in recently as people pay more attention to villains than they do to heroes. Apparently, when a villain is about to be finished off, we tend to wonder whether this is it for him/her and/or they will be redeemed. A part of our brain called the “pain matrix” gets us to either empathize with or get interested about the bad guys. You probably know where I’m going with this.

This picture pretty much sums up the majority of the anime/manga presence at this year’s New York Comic-Con. It looks like we have ourselves the gateway anime/manga title for this decade. Even though anime is mostly cast aside at NYCC, you can’t stop fandom from making something out of nothing.
Enjoy all the lovely photos I’ve taken at the convention.
