About

K-On! Fans Are Racist is a fandom generalization meme semi-ironically stating that fans of the slice-of-life anime series K-On!, and often other slice-of-life anime series and anime in general, are extremely racist. The meme was spawned by users with K-On! profile pictures purportedly being regularly caught posting racist and anti-semitic content on social media, gaining particular prominence in the /r/okbuddybaka subreddit.

Origin

On October 28th, 2010, DeviantArt[1] user prikkSG1 posted the earliest found Nazi-themed K-On! fanart, an image of the character Azusa Nakano given a Nazi armband and superimposed over a Nazi flag. The image (shown below, left) received over 12,000 views in 12 years and was widely used on imageboards through the 2010s.

In early 2016 a photoshopped image of K-On! characters standing next to Adolf Hitler went viral, with the earliest found repost made by iFunny[2] user KidSquid_Marie on January 3rd that year (shown below, center). Starting in 2017, a photoshopped K-On! frame in which the characters salute Adolf Hitler has been widely circulated[3] (shown below, right).

On June 16th, 2016, an unknown Redditor[4] shared a fan theory that stated that K-On! is set in a world where the Axis won World War II. On February 12th, 2023, an anonymous 4chan[5] user made a post on the /a/ board in which he wrote that K-On! was the trigger point for him turning fascist (post shown below).

You can't cross certain mental barriers and turn really Fascist until you've watched the first season of K-On!. The revelation embedded in CGDCT SOL moe shows is not the plot or the characters, but the presentation of the world. These shows take place in worlds of safety, security, happy homes, living traditions, and full employment. The worst thing that ever happens is a pet dying or someone's family moving away. These stories from their very outset reject the proposition of eternal struggle, suffering, degradation, corruption, collapse, and globalism. It's an implicit declaration of the fourteen words or whatever the equivalent is for your ethnic group. 48KiB, 388x569, 1581393874338.jpg View Same Google ImgOps iqdb SauceNAO
