otaku- really obbsessed with anime
anime lover- likes anime.

I think the difference would be like....

Anime Lover - enjoyed the anime and has a box set and the complementary poster

Otaku - enjoyed the anime and has the box set, the plastic models of the characters, the hentai-rated plastic models of the characters (even the male ones), has camped out in a line for entry into a convention in a cosplay outfit and has mugged you for your poster and box set so he can keep his in new, prestine conditions

well, in Japan, an otaku is kind of a stereotype for a nerd or freak, especially for manga or anime, while an anime lover is a person who, well, just loves anime

Seems duplicate...

They differ in spelling.

Otaku - derogatory term used for a person obsessed with a certain hobby.
Anime Lover - one who likes anime. (simply or excessively)

All Anime Otakus are Anime Lover
But not all Anime Lover are Anime Otakus.


i definitely agree...^^~

Hikikomori is ppl that shut them self in, and dont even leave theyr room normaly cuz they are afraid of social konakt and other ppl, its a sickness.. But hikikomoris dont need to watch anime or play games so thats not true, but the most hikikomoris in animes do...

Well i say only the spelling

well.. if u ask me i think an anime lover is just some1 who likes anime.. and watch it when they have time..

an otaku is some1 who MUST watch anime/read manga everyday otherwize his/her day wont be complete..

i would say that i am an otaku cuz i kinda mus read/watch anime/manga everyday.. and i do collect their marchandises.. the only thing i dont do is well.. buy manga.. cuz i think its a total waste of money when u can just download it.. unless of course the paticualr volume of the manga is out in stores b4 it is out on the internet.. i would like to read the paticular chapter/volume asap even though i have to pay for it.. even if possible i wouldnt mind buying raw jap manga and paying people to sub personally for myself..even though if it costs alot..

anime lover = watches anime on a certain time, has their own list on what anime genre to watch.

otaku = watches anime, die-hard/hardcore anime fan, cries when they missed an anime episode and sometimes threatens the creator for bad endings, attend and watches cosplay, memorizes certain anime lines and catch phrases, attends comic cons and get their autographs signed by their favorite seiyuu, has a massive collection of figurines, posters and dvds, watches almost anime genre, goes out rarely, most are NEET and Hikikomori, possibly a virgin =)
