I’ll preface this by saying that this is probably a combination of me having sads lately and having a general jealous/vengeful tendency about me.
So, my comic is on SmackJeeves, a platform that I’ve not used other than to read a single comic I like. SJ is composed of this: some good comics, a whole lot of anime comics, and a FUCKLOAD of yaoi comics.
I don’t have anything against the comics that actually have a style that isn’t blatantly copied anime. And while I do not like yaoi, I also have nothing against them either, provided it isn’t weeaboo shit.
What I don’t like is that dumb anime comics and yaoi comics in general just get a billion fans just by existing. I don’t know what it is about SJ demographics, but I’m assuming they’re composed mostly of 16-year-old girls, and everyone knows that 16-year-old girls LOVE yaoi. I’m not going to lie – when I was a 16-year-old girl, I also liked yaoi. Take this for example: this comic has five pages and 105 fans. 105 people like this comic. ONE-HUNDRED AND FIVE PEOPLE. I HAVE TWELVE PEOPLE. They probably like it because it is Boy’s Love.
And there’s a numerous amount of bland anime comics that look super generic, yet somehow garner ten billion fans BY looking like generic anime. There are actually a fair amount of anime-styled comics on SJ that aren’t actually garbage, but then you get this shit that’s literally copied anime garbage. This person has five comics and FOURTY-TWO FANS. WHAT THE FUCK? OH, RIGHT. IT’S TAGGED AS BOY’S LOVE.
Hey guys, maybe I should turn my comic into a story of all the male characters fucking each other so that people will actually like it, huh?!?!?
I’m just jealous that these people get encouraging comments like, “Wow, your [shitty weeaboo asshole anime] chibi style is so neat and cool!” or “Neat, I can’t wait for more!” or some other such stuff. Do I need these comments? Do these comments affect me in any way whatsoever? No, if I’d get such comments I’d still think my work is garbage, but I’m a lonely individual and I’m mad that I devote my time to this when douchebag 16-year-old girls get all sorts of encouraging comments after posting the latest weeaboo bullshit page of their Boy’s Love comic. Fuck this heterosexual earth.
