I watch anime. I read manga. I play games. Enough said.

I watch anime, buying anime DVDs that I'm interested in getting, buy manga's (and read them), play the games, and I cosplay when I go to conventions. That's the kind of otaku I am.

There's all different types of Otaku, so far I've met:

The Creepy Otaku
The Over-obssesive Otaku
The RAGE Otaku
The Perverted Otaku
The "Out Of Touch With Reality" Otaku
The "I Know More About Anime Than You Do" Otaku
The "All Around Normal" Otaku

To be honest, if we met on the street you probably wouldn't even know I was into anime. I'm more of a Glamor Girl. Not the type of person you usually see scouting the manga section at the bookstore, but would probably be checking out the latest season's fashions at the mall. I've only spent $30 on anime merchandise, I've never been to a convention in my life and probably won't, I never use Japanese in my everyday English, and have never worn any type of bracelets, clothing, or footwear relating to anime.

According to the quiz I'm a Closet Otaku, which I have to admit is somewhat accurate.

A mature one, I suppose. Not to be confused with an elitist one, though!
I'm a massive fan, particularly of ecchi, eroge, and figures. I'm a cosplayer, as well. But I'm also well-mannered, employed, attractive, socially adjusted, know how to dress myself, have my own place, and a boyfriend. :9 I have a few anime/game-related tattoos. I spend plenty of money on various anime/game paraphernalia, but other things come first. In short, I'm obviously geeky, but people view it as a positive - albeit quirky - trait of mine.
I get a little tired of the types who think that anyone who doesn't make a huge deal about 'hiding their powerlevel' (read: not admitting that they like anime) is somehow an 'inferior' fan. How the Hell can you be a superior fan if you're so ashamed of it?

To clarify, I don't mean people that get a little shy to admit they like anime because they think it's geeky. I mean the types that will vehemently deny that they have anything to do with anime while hurriedly pushing their merchandise under the bed - the ones who complain about anyone who freely talks about anime, that think that those people are shameful and idiotic. Most of /a/ on 4chan fit this 'elitist' mindset.

i read basically any manga's i get recommended from friends...and watch any anime so long as it holds my interest actually! LOL...and i don't wear weird clothes and stuff...but apparently when i break out into random Japanese words, i sound like those anime girls LOL...that's about it... I just talk a lot of Japanese that i pick up on! LOL

I consider myself a poor, closet otaku... because I don't buy expensive anime-related stuffs, books, dvds, etc (tho if you had the money to buy a lot of anime/manga, I doubt you'd be on crunchyroll to begin with :D). However, I do save up to go to small cons with my friends and cosplay in clothes we make ourselves and buy/make cheap plushies... I'm obsessed with bento box lunches and try to imitate them in cheap containers... I used to use wapanese but not anymore. And I like to sing badly in Japanese ahaha.

However, if you didn't know me or anything about anime/manga I could easily pass for your normal everyday student who likes to be active and have fun and who is obsessed with color, art, and philosophical things... and who will occassionally break out into anime-like hyperness and facial expressions.

Since it's hard to judge your own otaku-ness, I thought it'd be cool if anyone else replying could take this quiz too: http://www.theotaku.com/quizzes/view/256/what_kind_of_otaku_are_you%3F. My result was chibi otaku


i took this quiz, and this was my reasult

thanks for the link!

meh.. total bull



coz' i never bought manga or anime titles.. (i'm still deciding whether i'm really flat-broke or just too damn cheap) i've got a few terabytes worth of DVDs (data format) though courtesy of obsessive downloading. I used to make my own pirated DVDs complete with menus, background music, disc covers and case.. eventually i realized it's too much work and one day i said to myself FUCK THIS SHIT! and I opted for data format and sharpies for labelling.

I haven't watched them all but if you've got a $20 a month flat rate unlimited internet access coupled with a little "yarr!" mentality.. you'll download anything.

tip of the day: if your dvd player supports XVID or DIVX. convert your videos accordingly and burn. less hassle than converting it to dvd format.

That quiz doesn't really work accurately. It contains unrelated questions and answers to state what kind of Otaku you are, in short, its Bullsh!t

anyways, I did take it and got balance otaku, but I don't remember having my shelf with Literature lolol, hate those stuff.

i hate people who use the word otaku in their selection of vocabulary. But then again I don't like all people who use any type of japanese words mixed in with english
