    Is it just me or are Avatar (and now Legend of Korra, I guess) shippers a lot more insane than the regular kind?

    Only heard whispers. Teams were mentioned at one point.

    But yeah, I guess they could get pretty bad too from time to time.

    Let's just say death threats were involved, I've heard rumor of acid being used as a weapon.

    Shippers in general are utterly and totally batshit bonkers.

    You only need to worry about the self-identifying ones, people who proudly wear the moniker "Shipper" on their sleeve as they sail their ship deep into oblivion. Most people will ship in some form or another but for them it's just idle speculation about intercharacter relationships rather than something that defines them as a person and causes them to react as if stabbed by any evidence contrary to their chosen ship.

    Well, the latter category(and not the former) are generally the ones that the moniker "Shipper" adheres to.

    They're definitely in the upper echelon as far as crazy shippers go.

    Yeah, Avatar shippers (especially Zutarans) are definitely on the higher end of the "rabidly insane" scale.

    I mean, christ, we had people savaging a new character based on a single leaked pic.

    Yeah. The start is kind of meh since it's just recapping for a dozen or so episodes when the last branched off.

    But then it goes its own way and dear Jesus.

    It's a reference to something the character said earlier when Mustang attacked her and essentially failed to do any real damage.

    Her name is Lust, and she pretty much plays the part as she's essentially an incarnation of that particular member of the Seven Deadly Sins, so yeah, what she says often has some double entendres in it.

    Of course, let's be honest, anime manages to beat the two of them pretty easily, even ignoring Gantz (which should always be one's policy):



    To be fair, that's still a horror show. It can't possibly be that bad in light comedy, right?
