If you haven't seen FLCL you shouldn't be considered an anime fan. My biased opinion.

I'd classify anyone who likes any anime a fan, but it's always good to try classics ranging from Berserk, and Evangelion, to Code Geass, Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note etc... basically, just check a list of most popular anime (by popularity, not ratings).

If you watch and actually like anime, (I know people who watch that don't like it(??))..... You are an anime fan!

If you want to be a "well watched", (like "well read"), I think you need to see . . . .

Macross & Robotech
Galaxy Express 999
Project A-ko
Tenchi Muyo OVA
Evangelion TV & Rahxephon
Either Dragonball Kai or Naruto . . .
Ranma 1/2 TV (the first two or three seasons)
Cardcaptor Sakura & Cardcaptors
Cowboy Bebop
Hellsing (any of them)
Blue Sub 6
Outlaw Star (at least the first 6 or 7 epeisodes)
ToHeart & ToHeart2
Lain
Haibane Renmei
Madoka Magica
Ah! My Goddess
Simoun
Maria Holic

Some of these are to show how bad it can get, as well as good as it can get.
There are other shows I could suggest but these are good basic anime that cover a lot of ground.

I'd agree with this, but with a caveat. A fan of anything should give back, in some way, to the system that created what they enjoy. Anything else is just a leech.

Never mind what I said. To be a true anime fan you need to throw rotten eggs at Ishihara's house.

Seen the OVA, didn't care for it. Guess I'm not a "fan." Meh.

Ah, but if you saw it, you fulfilled the requirement.

Gotta agree with that . . . I know a few guys that think all anime should be free...
I don't buy DVDs much anymore but I still get magazines, art books and character goods... They make more money off that stuff anyway...

;)

Actually if you buy all kinds of anime stuff . . . you could be a fan...

Seems I knew of this gal that had an anime character tattooed on her shoulder, she didn't even like anime but she thought the character was "cool" looking..

on to other anime that make you a fan, of course theres the list:
evangelion
mobile suit gundam
turn A gundam
card captor sakura (the origional, not the shitty nelvana dub)
and digimon (the first three seasons of the fox kids dub)

You need to worship Bible Black. If you have not you can´t even be considered to know what anime is...
Well joke aside. And umm... don´t watch that one, and if you do, atleast make sure your mom isn´t around.

So the serious answer.
Simply watch the kind of anime you like, don´t worry about being a fan or not just enjoy what you like. Also every kind of taste has their own must see series and movies.

But for me a true fan support the things he/she love, one way or the other. The way I support anime is by buying anime, manga and different kind of merchandise related to them.

I think it's more of an interest than viewing a certain anime.
