Today in No Life Weeaboo News many fans of the popular “sports” anime Yuri On Ice were angered by Hallmark’s new show called Love on Ice. Before I go any further let me say that their reason is somewhat stupid. The fans were angered because they believed that the show was a rip off of Yuri On Ice. According to Kotaku
“a January 2nd Change.org petition demanding that the Hallmark Channel take down Love on Ice garnered over 3,600 signatures in just two days. “It is obvious that Hallmark is making a movie very similar to the hit anime, ‘Yuri On Ice’ created by Mitsurō Kubo,” the petition reads. Thousands of outraged tweets accused Hallmark of copying Yuri on Ice, with several hundred describing it as a white, heterosexual mutant clone”
Clearly the Yuri On Ice fans went full on SJW because Love on Ice is similar to their beloved show. Sadly the Weeaboi failed to realize that the people who came up with the show have probably never seen the show and possibly never even seen an anime or read a fucking manga. This story is a perfect example of how the anime community flips out over shit that doesn’t even matter and it’s also what makes people shun and not want to be associated with anime or their fans.
Another thing that I want to point out is that just because something is very similar doesn’t mean that it’s a copy or that it’s inspired by whatever it’s similar to, it also doesn’t mean that you should go bat shit triggered because it really doesn’t matter
