I'm a fan of anime and manga, not otaku . I like to read manga and watch anime, but I don't cosplay, don't watch the movies, don't collect manga, don't go to conventions. But really, the definition of otaku...

is a Japanese term used to refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime, manga, and video games.

So yeah, I like to draw it, though I'm not that good at it; and watch anime, and read manga, but really that's where it ends. I love Japan and it's culture, but don't think that it all revolves around anime and manga. I listen to Japanese music and other stuff that is considered things that otaku do, but not really anything else.

haha....I guess I am/was an otaku, but now I like manga more than anime. I can hold normal conversations that don't have anything to do with anime. I don't wear those weird anime hats. I used to, but they have long since been kept away. I have friends that like anime and some that hate it. I am not one of the most popular kids at school, but I am more of a person who hangs out with anyone.

I don't really spend like tons of cash on expensive anime products. I do spend on imported manga though. I do like playing videogames too. I am rather addicted to pokemon, MW2, etc. I have watched over 200 anime series and read of 300 manga series....so in that respect I kind of used to have no life( I used to spend 12 hours a day watching/reading manga). Sometimes I catch myself drawing manga, or doodling random anime drawings into a notebook. I also recently just started to cosplay...Just not to the point that it consumes half my life.

Exactly what I said.


what about that makes you an Otaku?

I am NOT an Otaku.

I am fluent in Japanese, I like playing video games and watching cartoons from anywhere, Japan, France, Germany, America, ext.
I am not brain dead obsessed to the point of it being counted as a sickness. I do not freak out and jack off to cartoons like Naruto.
So I am not a anime nor gaming Otaku. Nor do I go nuts about sports I can hardly stand watching sports on tv. So no I am not a Sport Otaku. I am not a car Otaku, I am not a tech Otaku. NO NO No NO no.

I will willingly bet money on the fact that more than half the kids calling them selves Otaku does not even know what the word means. (and are not Otaku at all.)


are you in denial? It sounds like it

It's ok! we understand your situation! we won't tell! I PROMISE!!!


'No I just like to know the facts. That is who I am!! And the fact is Otaku stands for some one so obsessed with something that it is all they think about. I for one have a life and so can not be an Otaku.


Being an Otaku is a life though. lol~ don't take my comment so seriously, i was just kidding :P

I found out what I was looking for

There are good Otaku's like Jersey otaku, Gun otaku, Robot Otaku but the mostly despised and known Otaku's are Manga/Anime/Ecchi/Eroge Otaku. That's what I learned

Mweh, I just have some books in the shelfs, 2 gundam thingies and I randomly watch anime once a while. How much of an Otaku is that?

Ehh...I have a decent sized manga collection, but I don't watch a lot of anime. I also don't like wasting money on useless merch, so as of right now all I have is a Reborn hat, some Final Fantasy Elixir, and a few KH phone straps. Hmm, I don't use random Japanese words in conversation, and I've lost all desire to visit Japan. So I don't really consider myself an anime otaku...Although I might be a gaming otaku, since that's what I usually do in my free time~

Well . I do like anime and manga but I'm not really into
buying expensive stuffs related to it, even posters and figurines.. I don't even bother myself purchasing a manga.
I can read it online anyway. I'm not into cosplaying either and never been into cons?? or whatever you call that.
Lastly, Anime role-play irritates me.

I'm a fan of anime and manga. I collect plenty of anime and manga. I have anime related merch like figurines, cds and posters. Not any anime clothing that I can think of though. I do not like cosplaying, I like to dress somewhat normal (though somedays you'd think I'm incapable of that). Even at cons, I go to two or three a year if I can manage it. I guess I try to pretend to be normal most of the time (ala the closet geek lol). I'm not that much of a gamer, don't use Linux, not one of those "I'm a cool geek" people either though. I also enjoy reading about the history of anime and manga too.
Also when I'm at cons I don't go around screaming memes either!

I'd say I'm an Otaku I really don't do much for fun if I'm not chillin with some friends at Show-me's or w/e other than watch anime/read manga/ play games.... when I draw I draw manga... drawing irl pics is... annoying... I have a job but most of my money goes towards my rent and phone and food and stuff... but any extra cash I have goes towards video games... I don't go to a lot of stores as I'm disinterested (and most of the time have no extra money) but if I do go to a store I check out the manga or Anime dvd's :D... or video games :D.... or cool anime things... I've never been to a con but i really want to go someday... i've never cosplayed but I want to someday :D.... i want some cute clothing items like a beanie with like cat ears or something... and when I get a better job I think a lot of my problems will be solved :D... also I don't have a lot of manga or dvd's as I prefer to find stuff on the internet... cuz it's free and I don't have a lot of money :\ so ya know :P... if I would I could... but I can't so I won't... as for personality... anyone who knows me knows I have an anime/manga addiction :D... I can relate anything anyone says to me to an anime or manga in some way :D... and that's all I have to say...

I buy dvds, manga, posters, draw it, etc. n i watch it online and obsess about it, though only to my friends that like anime. i have some friends who arent afraid to announce it to the world but i dont like non-otakus knowing that i am one XD im such a sad person. my friend bought a deidara head band n was gonna wear it around school but i told her that if she did i wasnt gonna talk to her XD

i hate it when non-japanese people use japanese words in conversation. its just annoying. i dress normally too.

I dress, speak and act normally.
My otaku interests are limited to NO INCOME, so i'm an "internet otaku"
I watch anime, manga, anime art, listen to jpop, explore japanese fashion only on the internet.
