This is scaring me quite a bit since I see people who take anime waayyy too far. There is a thing called moderation.

I got 45 on my own test. I'm eeeh. Pretty close to being otaku.
Thanks everyone for your entertaining feedback! As I've sort of predicted, most people on CR are anywhere from 30-60. The Distribution is a little skewed to the lower half, but that's okay since this test isn't a serious one.
This test is for fun and not necessarily an accurate assessment of you being an otaku!

Oh yeah, feel free to add onto the list to determine if you are an oootakuuu....


does it count if ive spoken japanese since i was born??? 0.o

No, because that means it's your first language.
