LOL! Too funny.

I think an Otaku is one who prolly looks like death because of the lack of sunlight and act strange because of the lack of socialization with the outside world...
An anime lover looks and acts like everyone else cus they come up for air and actually go outside.

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..

Japanese perspective: Anime lovers are anime lovers... there are many different types of otaku... basically otaku means geek... i mean u can love anime without being an otaku... but Otakus... are freaking hardcore...REALLLY FREAKING HARDCORE... this is a typical otaku my dear friends (well not typical but wot otakus aim for and have completed around 50% of this masterpiece):


THIS is Like 50 doujins, 10 eroges, 5 ddifferent light novel series, 20 different series on ddvdd, four posters, a body sized pillow with a anime cover, 120 figures and 60 volumes of manga.... or equivalent to...

American perspecitve: otakus are basically any anime or manga lover that are dedicated to anime... i wouldd think... spends at least 5 hours a week on anime or manga? (well in a typical week i myself spend around 10h so...(i have school ok...)). Umm... yea i think that sums it up... pretty plain...

One of the main symptoms of any Addiction and obsession involves shutting everything else in your life to be around your obsession/addiction. I think thats what an otaku does.

An anime lover IMO is the same as a sports lover.

Sports Lovers- Watch the games, follows the news on his/her favorite team, every once in awhile hits the forums/youtube for his/her favorite clips, maybe plays fantasy football... with friends and/or coworkers.

Sports Otaku... think they are the analyst/announcer/Quarterback
