Dear teacher:
I'd like to ask the way of using the word "massive fans". I first time saw this word in a passage about musical. Therefore I'd like to ask if I can use this word in movies, music, comics...,etc.(other fields) Thank you very much!!

I would think it would be better to use "a massive number of fans;" otherwise it sounds like the fans are a very large size.

Dear teacher:
Thank you for your reply. I have further questions. That is how do I use "massive fan"?

1. I saw the sentence like "I am not a massive fan of musical." Can I also say "I am not a massive fan of movies(drama, sports,....)?

2. Can I say "massive fan" means I am a fan who is really attracted by what I like(more than an usual fan)?

Thank you very much!
