No. Not that kind.
I mean the kind of how you invest in series or franchise.
I'm the middle age guy now and I saw quite a lot of fandom. I've been in one myself.
It's really nice to see passion of the fans. Awesome fan project, art, and crafts.
But I also see the dirty side of fandom. No I didn't mean NSFW fanart(although that's kinda dirty LOL)
I mean fandumb.
The popular the franchise the bigger the fandumb. and more vile and vicious too.
I've grown up in 80-90. I've grown up with franchise like Starwars, Pokemon, Dragon BallZ, etc.
I have my own beloved franchise and held it very dear.
Then come Starwars Phantom Menace. At first I didnt know the backlash was this bad(Maybe because of the infancy of the internet)
Most backlash come from diehard fans of the original trilogy. I've read some criticize from those fans. And I agree with some of those point.
What about me? I like the prequels. Oh no! Such blasphemous!
Why I didnt hate the prequels? I watched the original trilogy surely that would make me hate the prequels?
See, while I watched the originals and loves it, that's pretty much how I regard Starwars franchise as a whole. I just love it and that's it.
I didnt invest in lores or merchandise or spinoff and such. I do play many Starwars games though
You see, when you invest too much in something, the more you attached to it. Wow that's kinda obvious LOL
While some hate the changes made to franchise, I dont really care if Hans shoot first or after. I dont really care about Jar jar binks either
For me, sometimes it's better to let go.
Except for later Final Fantasy games. I hate those Jpop-idol douche XP
