You may have been there -
The Hammer's gotten enough letters about it, that's for sure. Joe Fanboy
gets the hot-off-the-LD fansub of Monkey Warrior Bobo X, and you've been
waiting forever to see it. All you have to do is ask him for a copy, right?
There are a good number of
anime fans who remember when it was just them and their old-school buddies
who knew about anime, and they lorded all of their Kewl Toyz(tm) over the
new guys. They were the only ones on the planet who could score fansubs,
music, images, and so on, because they had connections. Nowadays, however,
things have changed. Because of the large number of sites on the 'Net,
hundreds of fansub distributors, and dozens of companies willing to special
order your Gundam Q artbook, you don't need their fancy connections.
Nobody really does. But since everyone gets different things at different
times, occasionally you stop by your local anime club, and there the Elitist
Fanboys are, with the newest show, contesting about how good it is - and keeping
it to themselves.
They even have little groupies
- admirers from a bygone era when only one or two people in town could
get stuff. "Oh, Elitist Fanboy, you are the best! Can I come over and watch
it, pleeease?" Give me a break.
Word to all of these folks
out there: Learn to Share. You aren't any better than the rest of
us, and eventually we'll get so sick of your bragging about 'convention
buddies who have all of X' and 'private FTP server Y' that we'll boot you
out of our little group, and you can play with your toys at home.
