If you've ever been part of the anime community, then you know that certain channels have drama to thank for all of their subscribers. In particular, SenpaiisHome is one anime channel that has gained over 3000 subscribers due to the Vic Mignogna situation. I don't really care for these types of channels, since they need to constantly feed into it in order to keep their subs around. What's your opinion on this? Are drama-related anime youtube channels a good thing? Do they help our community or are they a detriment to it?
You know to be perfectly honest I didn't even know anime related youtube channels that talk about anime news and whatnot were actually a thing that was big until like maybe...3 years ago? (yes I live under a rock more or less). I would just watch anime and that would be the end of it. I actually always hated most "anime critics" also after getting a bad taste in my mouth from checking out some very misinformed reviews :U
Though to be more on topic. I think there's always going to be those types of channels when it comes to any type of hobby that just capitalizes on controversy or attempt to cater to certain "trending" viewpoints. People love to not only hear a constant stream of news about a controversy, but they also want to have someone affirm their own thoughts on the situation. So that opens up a niche for people on both sides of the argument when it comes to these types of things.
I don't see anything wrong with it to be honest, people find success on media platforms in different ways and that's a totally valid method.
I might watch Drama related channels once every blue moon. But meh
Drama sells, it is as simple as that. Ever heard of the phrase, "there is no such thing as bad publicity"?
Dude if we stop talking about it then it would be bad for someone that has lost everything. All of the anime you tubers that I watch are actually very popular even before this thing happened with Vic. so I don't know what anime are you tubers that you were watching but the situation right now is drastic because people are not wanting an apology they want him dead.
