rofl. ghetto? I wonder what's the qualification for that.

Don't want to toot my own horn too much, but I think that my list is actually decently accurate, and most people are just overstating what they've done or what they haven't done. Safe to say nobody's actually hit 100% yet. I'm convinced that my list is accurate thanks to compiling the stats on the list and having a near perfect min (average) and a standard deviation nearing 25. I've yet to compile a distribution (bell) curve, but that's because I don't have the software to do so and it's been too long since I did statistics.


aah yeah... okey...

ummmm i think an otaku is an anti-social person that buys nothing but anime merchandise and stays at home watching anime all day. the stuff u said just kinda sounds like "american" otaku stuff. as in what an anime-obsessed fan would be doing..
~could be wrong but my cousin in japan says thats what they are

Quite simply put, in Japan, an Otaku is a person who takes his hobbies way too seriously. It's true that this quiz is toned down a little to suit non-japanese audiences, but I'll maintain that a Japanese Otaku is prone to scoring 100% on my test, and then take things one step further. As it is, though, most people who have answered to the list has on average only scored half the items on the list (view the stats given after I compiled it), with nobody scoring 100%, maximum score being 95% (one person, and it's NiceBoat), and average score being 47%, which is safe to say that most people are "serious anime lovers".

However, not all Otaku are anti-social and stay at home watching anime all day. Watch Genshiken for a pretty accurate and down-to-earth representation of Otaku life. And then watch Welcome to the NHK for a pretty accurate and down-to-earth representation of what it is to be a Hikkimori. In several cases both of them do overlap, though, but in my opinion, being an Otaku doesn't necessarily mean you have to be anti-social.
