IMO

it is bad for a person to be an otaku when he/she is at least three of the following:

No friends online or offline
No job or skipping work 4 days a week
Your 30 and have not left home, once
No money
No food or eating only food high in sugar and fat 9 times a day
Skipping school 5 days every week or your grades are D's and F's
You have not taken a bath in a week or your white underwear is now completely brown and yellow

There's already a mental illness that describes your friend's condition, and it's called schizophrenia(http://www.world-schizophrenia.org/disorders/schizophrenia.html):

Symptoms of Schizophrenia

Symptoms vary greatly. Common symptoms of schizophrenia are:

Delusions: False, but strongly held beliefs, which feel entirely real to the sufferer. They can cause the individual to have a greatly exaggerated belief in his or her own importance, power, knowledge, abilities, or identity. Some people have delusions of persecution (paranoia)-for example, the false belief that they are being attacked, harassed, cheated, spied on or conspired against by others. Other people with schizophrenia believe that occurrences in the outside world are referring to them (ideas of reference). Examples are believing that other people are doing things because of you or that the TV or radio are referring specifically to you, often in negative ways.

Hallucinations: Seeing, hearing, feeling, touching smelling or tasting things that aren't there. Hallucinations have to do with the senses. Hearing voices is the most common hallucination among people with schizophrenia.

Illusions: Disturbances in perception that are less intense than hallucinations. An individual with schizophrenia may experience periods of heightened sensory awareness, during which sounds seem louder or sharper than usual and colours appear brighter, or periods of muted awareness, when sensory input seems closed off. Other illusions may include objects seeming closer or farther away than they really are, or one's own voice or reflection seeming different or even threatening.

Thought Disturbances: Often called muddled thinking by those who experience them, thought disturbances are characterized by an inability to concentrate, to connect thoughts logically, or to think clearly. Thought processes may speed up (racing thoughts) or slow down, or may seem blocked so that the person's mind feels completely blank. Disturbances in thinking are sometimes compared to a broken filter that allows everything that enters the mind to have the same importance — for example, attaching the same significance to licence plate numbers as to a questions from a teacher.

Emotional & Behavioural Changes: A person with schizophrenia can experience sudden, inexplicable changes in mood, such as intense sadness, happiness, excitement, depression or anger that come on without reason or warning. Lack of feelings can be equally disturbing. Symptoms that deprive a person of a range of normal emotions are often described as "negative." The person seems less able to feel anything, including pain or joy. Sometimes this loss of feeling extends to the "sense of self". The individual experiences a sense of unreality about who and where they are or where their body ends. More than any of the symptoms described above, the behavioural changes indicate to others the possible presence of schizophrenia.

An early sign of disturbance is often social withdrawal, as the individual finds interactions with people and things progressively more difficult. One such common response is inability to take an interest in personal hygiene and appearance. Lack of energy, interest and motivation or decreased levels of activity, movement or speech should alert friends and family that something may be amiss. Similarly, behaviour patterns that are unusual in the particular individual, or responses that are clearly inappropriate (excessive laughing or crying in inappropriate circumstances, or excessive talking to oneself) may indicate the approach of an episode of schizophrenia.

Now what's any of that has got to do with being an otaku?


Um, that's not true, staying home from school to watch anime could be one of any number of mental disorders (OCD, Asperger's Syndrome, etc.), or it could be no mental disorder at all. And the guy's English isn't THAT bad. Shouldn't we save the harsh attacks for the fangirls with the 'u's?

Okay: tip. Do NOT learn your English from unlicensed anime (subbed or dubbed). The English used isn't correct!

Of course it's bad to be an otaku. Otaku basically means pervert. And no, pervert does not mean you like sex, like naked men and/or women, or are gay.

I remember in my high school years, I slept like 2-4 hour a days watching anime till 4:00 am then wake up at 6 then go to school. I never skipped school but everyday I though the lack of sleep would kill me someday. Now, I watch less anime and trying to get back the sleep I lost in high school ( I sleep like 10-14h /day xD xD)

Being at Otaku isn't bad, its just how you balance it. I'm one, or maybe on my way to be. And I'm proud of being one. LOL!

I don't want to sound mean.

But do tell your friend to seek help. :\

Or maybe take him to an amusement park. So he can enjoy some other aspect of life.

It's pointless to go mad over something. Mind over matter. The second some stupid material existence conquers your mind, you're doomed to fail. Regardless of how physically or intellectually strong a person is, mind over matter is the greatest strength a person can possess.

Pft. Your post embodies the term "ignorance". Lovely.

1. Your definition of a pervert is.... what? You only told things that DON'T make up a pervert. What DO?

2. Since when does being gay make you perverted? Don't insult orientation like that. Gay people have every right to love, they're human too.

3. Otaku means pervert? Brilliant. The definitions have clear distinctions, I implore you to look them up.

Thanks for your time!
