It truly is amazing to see how this show has swarmed the Internet. The question is though is that a good thing or a bad thing. Personally I do like the show for what it is and that it actually puts effort into it and doesn't talk down to its audience.
However the Internet turned it into a meme, there is no doubting this whatsoever, but there are still fans of the show who truly do appreciate the show for what its worth. It's starting to create more than what it is and that's where I believe things start getting awkward.
The reason being is there has been an influx of fan fiction and fan art. Now I have nothing against fan art, hell some of the most creative pieces of work can come from fan art and at times they can turn out really cool. However fan fiction takes a different route in my personal opinion, but if people like it then that's okay by me.
What I find strange though is that the show itself is harmless, but this Internet fanbase is creating a life of its own and that seems to be to be a bit creepy. I might be over exaggerating though, but when I see and hear people talk about buying the dolls and things to put on their desks and collecting them that's when I gotta ask where this Internet fanbase stands at the moment.
If this show dies down and the fad appeal wears off, who will forget about it and move on to the next fad and who will stay and still be a fan of the show?
