Today while scrolling through AMVs anime fan Dave Brown noticed that anime critic Digibro’s video “How to Recognize a Terrible Anime (in just one episode)” was in the video sidebar recommended for him, as it had been for the past 6 months.
“Goddamn it, there it is again.” Dave complained to himself. “Why is Youtube so sure that I want to watch this video? No matter what anime video I’m watching that damn Digibro video is always there, filling up some spot that could be for some interesting video related to what I’m watching. Like, I’m watching a Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure AMV, it’d be one thing if it were a Digibro video about Jojo’s but they’re completely unrelated unless you group all anime into one category.”
“I mean, I guess I don’t have anything against Digibro, I think I watched one of his videos when it was linked somewhere, but I definitely don’t need to devote a half hour of my life to discovering how to recognize a bad anime in one episode. I could literally just watch an episode of anime in less than the amount of time it’d take me to get through his video.”
“Is this Youtube subtly commenting on my taste? Like, are they saying based on the videos I watch that I have shit taste, so they’re trying to force me to change my viewing habits? Well fuck you Youtube, you don’t know me!”
Following these comments, Dave started watching the first episode of The Asterisk War, which he thought looked promising so far.
