Japanese Vtuber Says People With Anime Profile Picture Are Most Toxic

A new controversy came to limelight in Japan, when a post went viral about a Vtuber criticizing people with anime profile pictures. Suto Emini, who is a Japanese Virtual YouTuber and defines herself as a feminist on her Twitter profile, went viral when she openly criticized anime fans and allegedly exposed their toxic behavior.

A Twitter user nakka__35 tweeted:

The most dangerous thing is to criticize otaku content because it attracts slander, searches for personal information and dea*h threats. There are many dangers associated with the Odakyu incident.

So the controversy began when Suto Emini replied to this tweet through her Twitter account with a following message:

I really understand it; the most dangerous (topic) and what “hits” the most around here…. I don’t know from where (Otaku’s Image as) “we’re nice, harmless, and shy” self-image comes from.

Suto Emini further said:

In my case, there were times when people who came to troll my YouTube comments had 100% anime profiles, so I had to block them, manually, one by one.

There are also people who suddenly bring up anime / otaku themes and “throw on my face” even though they haven’t been criticized or even mentioned. I wonder what they are going to say all of a sudden.

I’ve never seen anything like this outside of otaku community, where just by criticizing an anime, you can be inundated with slander, have your personal information searched and exposed, and even receive dea*h threats.

It should be pointed out that people with anime profile picture are often treated differently outside of anime community. There is a running joke in some communities that “opinion of people with anime profile picture does not matter”.

It remains to be clarified that people with extreme behavior exist in all kinds of community, whether it’s anime or games. Criticizing the whole anime community for the action of a few people is unfair and should not be allowed.

Finally, what is your opinion on this matter? For example, people (with anime profile picture) you interacted with, did you find any difference in behavior? Please let us know your opinion in the comment section.

  1. This is hilarious, what is a Vtuber but a person who uses an anime-style avatar for their content?

  2. It is not a bad thing to have an anime profile picture, but I’ve observed that most otaku’s are introverts and have their own world

    1. let me correct that for you most ppl are introverts (and not just introverts) and have their own world that if you say something they dont agree their jump on you with attacks and slander.

  3. Man who is dumb enough to profile your real face in youtube and most of the people in the internet are judging by thier looks. When im using my real account that has my face on it and u know what they did??? They are face shaming me and make’s fun of my face soo i had no choice to make another account and profiling anime or what u want. I think u need to watch dharman’s video in youtube so youll know the “dont judge the book’s by its cover” (sorry for the bad english pls understand)

  4. Idk if you all dumb enough or not but the statement goes to they who goes toxic. If you’re not then why would be triggered? She blocked people who has negative acts through her, and it’s just a fact if 100% of them use anime pfp. Last thing, let me tell you, no one push you to use real face nor anime pfp, you can use plant/art/animal pfp. Just… be smart.
