I think your an otaku if you have massive amounte of action figures, DVDS, tshirts and etc...
You go around cosplaying ur favourite anime/manga charecter
You got no social life and u spend every minute of ur life watching anime or reading manga
And you think of nothing but anime and mangas all day

There was. I don't really like threads or discussions about distinctions between otakus and non-otakus.

LOL alot of ppl act or try to look like an anime character because they really admire him/her.
Nothing wrong with that. If someone see's an anime character talk a certain way, they would prolly do the same since to them, they think its kool.

i dont have action figures,anime posters etc. but i really love to watch anime...am i an otaku or an anime fan?
Posted 7/31/08
It depends really.
Otakus range from the common anime lover (as in, that is all he talks about, he lives, and breathes anime/manga), the Cosplayer (with a few exceptions, you can safely say most cosplayers are otakus), and the Hentai (being the Japanese word for pervert, or loosely translated to perverted things, likes watching hentai etc, but not everyone who watches it is a otaku either).
More or less, I'd say a mix of any of those, in huge amounts (as in, similar to the anime lover kind of otaku in a sense of living and breathing anime).

I mean, I have a lot of animes and mangas, yet I don't consider myself an otaku, for I have a life, and I don't spend days on end, in a basement, watching anime. I swear, I love it, but I'm not the kind who lives for it.

Anime Fan = Yuo see anime ina moderate manner and sometimes read manga, I think it's fine if you have somes DVD, computer images and manga book.
Otaku = Someone who only see anime and read manga, don't go out and their best friend is her/his favorite friend is like an anime girl/boy and if he/she is really an otaku maybe he/she see hentai


Someone who only see anime and read manga
--------------------------------------------------------------------
That's wrong, Otakus see news very often, therefore this statement is flawed

don't go out
-----------------
Wrong, Otakus would go out sometimes, therefore, your statement is false

their best friend is her/his favorite friend
---------------------------------------------------------
Well, I think my best friend is the friend that I favour the most :l

her/his favorite friend is like an anime girl/boy
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Maybe in general, but not all. You're currently stereotyping Otakus

he/she is really an otaku maybe he/she see hentai
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Completely false, unless you've seen every single Otakus out there.

Your statement is corrupted, which means that I will now sublate your reality

Well you didn't have to go out and refute his entire paragraph and personally I found your post to be a little harsh and over the edge. From reading your past posts in this thread i can tell that you really like paying attention to small details, especially those that involve words.... so Here, I'll box a portion of the title for you. Ironically you missed out on one of the key points of this topic.. lulz? This thread is asking for each individuals personal opinion. Of course there is going to be a conflict among opinions, hell, that's human nature. Not every ones going to agree and we most certainly do not need some lame kid to come in here and refute each and every one of our statements. Personally I have nothing against you, but seriously, stop being so lame. Everyone has their own god damn opinion and there's no chance in hell some lame kid is going to take that away from them. And anyways, do you really have nothing better to do than sit at home arguing with someone over a thread based solely upon opinion? (Notice in an attempt to limit swearing I have substituted several words with "lame" xD?)

Anyways, back on topic...

I think the line between otaku and fan is really how obsessed you are over something. You can enjoy watching anime and etc. which is perfectly fine.. But once you get into the cosplay (k, halloween is an exception?? lol) , action figure collections, plushie collections, 'mature' fan art.. you have a problem.. lol.

Yeah I do understand. I admit, I do watch my fair share of hentai as well, but I'm not religious about anime and stuff. Its just a fun thing to watch/read/play. I prefer hanging out with my friends any day though.
