“Why so serious?” you asked? Serious about what? About the anime I watched? The answer is not with me. Actually it’s you who have the serious problem here so go ask yourself. Your problem is you think I’m taking things too seriously although you have no idea of how much of a big fan I am, and you judged me based on your mere assumptions. You thought that I take things too seriously just because I think the things you like are craps. You think my seriousness is offensive and that’s why you’re wrong.
By the way, you’re right that I’m indeed taking things seriously, because I know only serious people will be successful in the end. Students passed their exams because they learned and studied seriously. Workers got promoted because they did their jobs seriously. Music bands broke the sales record because they always seriously trying to improve themselves. In my case I can see flaws in the craps you like because I feel they’re important and I put my interest in them. Look, being serious here might have made me a better fan than you because I pay more attention to the things you claimed to be a fan too. I have more focus on it in contrast of you who are laid-back about things you said you have interest in but you dare calling yourself a fan? You know what happen to people who don’t take things seriously? If they’re entertainers they will sure get booed in their performance. If they’re salesmen they won’t be able to sell a thing at all. If they’re athletes they won’t win any medal. You still want to think that being laid-back is the better way to have fun?
Actually it’s the serious people who actually enjoy the world more than laid-back people because they participate in the things they paid their attention to, they immersed themselves in those things and tried to improve them even if they’re not directly involved. They couldn’t fix the flaws by their hands so they spoke/wrote about it. It’s better than doing nothing at all. Serious people, unlike the “unserious” people like you, don’t settle for ignorance, don’t get easily contented by craps and don’t feel happy to be second-rate. Serious people do contribute to the world because I tell you praises and compliments alone won’t make anything better. So does ignoring flaws won’t improve anything either.
