Some of my friends learned in under a year. Took extra classes and practiced the hell out of it though. It's much easier to learn when you're a kid, too.

LOL WHAT THE FUCK? did i just score 60?
12x5 = 60

I don't call myself an otaku nor would I feel like I am teh shitz for being one. I doubt I am one since i kick ass in school, have friends that i game with too.. I GET GOOD GRADEZ!!!

Anime revolves around me and my life, or the other way around maybe.
I watch it, i breathe it, without it I will die... sorta
I love the japanese culture.. so that means i will listen to their music 24/7
Only half or less of these questions only truly define an otaku...
Otherwise, scoring a 60 like me would just mean i'm very interested and its one of my fun hobbies!

Let me clarify that Anime is everything to me...
