If you know what an otaku is, you are halfway there.


If you feel there are real and important differences between being an anime lover and otaku, you are an otaku.

Anime lover: A person who watches any anime that tickles their fancy, collects manga, goes to an anime convention every now and then, collects some novelty items, tries to learn about the culture of Japan, and is pretty much a normal person.

An otaku/weeaboo:

This depends on whether you're going for the Americanized term, which has a positive connotation, or the original Japanese slang, which has a negative connotation. With the Americanized term, you're an Otaku the moment you're knowledgeable enough to even know what it means, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, as the American term is basically a label for people who like this sort of thing. The Japanese term on the other hand, takes a little more enthusiasm. To hit the nail of the head, you have to
A) Be VERY out of shape
B) Enjoy collecting large amounts of the merchandise, especially the figurines
C) Watch Anime in a darkly lit room VERY CLOSE TO THE TELEVISION/PC
D) Have little to no friends off the internet
E) Have a meticulous habit of correcting every technicality
F) Know every anime term known to man
G) Play H games, Dating Sims, and the like

In Japan, this is a REALLY BAD label that you under no circumstance want to be labeled under.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
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.



An opinion must be always backed up by a statement.
This is law U_U

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.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Meh, I was bored that time.

I found your post to be a little harsh and over the edge.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the internet, it's a harsh world.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Small details are evident in this world. Without them, many things wouldn't have been solved.

so Here, I'll box a portion of the title for you.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hence the opinion, but like I stated before, it must be backed up by a statement.

Ironically you missed out on one of the key points of this topic.. lulz?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ironically, you've missed out on one of the critical definations of, "opinion".

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.
--------------------------------------
Which is why I'm doing it

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.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Have I? I think not. And like you've said before, conflict is human nature.

Personally I have nothing against you, but seriously, stop being so lame.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'd like a defination of this, "lame" that you've been repeatly accusing me of.

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.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Opinions must be backed with a statement, this is law. Accept it.

And anyways, do you really have nothing better to do than sit at home arguing with someone over a thread based solely upon opinion?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was bored, like I've stated before.

You haven't given a clear defination of this, "lame" that you are refering to. Please do so next time.

EDIT -
And looking back at posts before, it seems that I only criticized one post.
:l

Stuff like this makes baby jesus cry. *sigh*
Anyways here are your typos since you love mistakes so much:
1) You probably meant 'repeatedly' not 'repeatly' since 'repeatly' isn't a word.
2) 'Defination' isn't a word however 'definition' is. Considering you spelled 'definition' wrong three whooping times, I'm preeeety sure it wasn't a typo.

Anyways you state that an opinion must be backed up by a statement and etc. Technically an opinion is a statement in its self.. but i can see where your going with this..... actually, i lied. I don't even know what the hell you're trying to say. What in the world are you saying? What law states that an opinion must be backed up by a statement?

Ironically you say I don't know the definition of "opinion" while your the one feeding us false definitions. Here, since I'm a nice guy and all, I'll take the 10 seconds needed to use dictionary.com for you.

1. a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty.
2. a personal view, attitude, or appraisal.
Now, where does it say in there that you MUST back up your OPINION. Thank you, please stop talking.
I seriously don't know why some kids like to argue with other people online and try to hide behind their big bad keyboard of flaming words, trying to impress people with their "ub3r4w3s0m313370mg1th1nk1'mg01ngtocum engrish". (That r was intentional)

Oh and btw about the lame thing... apparently someone here is visually impaired... I'll quote myself for you.

(Notice in an attempt to limit swearing I have substituted several words with "lame" xD?)


Anyways, at this point it feels like I'm picking on a kid with down syndrome, srsly. (that last typo was intentional too >_>;)

But seriously, before this gets any further I'd like to quote you

Are you retarded?

Wrong. Otaku is a person who is obsessed with something they dont have to have anime things to be an otaku , Otaku and anime lovers are the same thing. They both love something and overreact about it (Cosplaying) Otaku doesn't have to be someone who never goes outside you watch Welcome to the NHK? The anime guy gone to school and went out alot , and he's an otaku.

I cannot believe that you can't see the first f*cking word.


Implied is just a word to say is / Way to say thats how it is. "It was " Implied" in our school's testimony as a constitution for our rights"

involved, indicated, or suggested without being directly or explicitly stated; tacitly understood: an implied rebuke; an implied compliment.

No, it isn't.


It is. Or it could be used to be added in something . "The effect of racism being banned was implied shortly after the heroic statements made by malcom X Martin luthor king and Rosa parks" Another sentence.

We're thinking about different definitions now. The "imply" you are thinking about is;To express or indicate indirectly. While the "imply" I am thinking about is; the general idea of something.


Oh lmao. My bad.
