No... you're #1. I've been casually watching and tabulating the results. You're #1, which question did you miss out on?

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, and I'll like to take things on a case to case basis and don't judge.


2 people now for the 95% part

And that's still 2 people out of maybe 330 replies. That's 0.6% of polled users.
