There's too much Closet Otaku's out there. I know for a fact. My friend says he thinks anime is lame although I know that he watches it.

I think guys are good at hiding their otaku-ness. So it's probably 50/50.

I've never come across a female otaku. I've barely come across people who are fans of anime, I'm sure they're out there but I think most try to hide it because of the negative connotations.

At my place, being an anime fan is not considered a bad thing, but.. childish.
they think anime is just like one of those regular cartoons for young kids.
same here, I've never met a girl who's really into anime. my male friends do
watch them, but only the popular ones. naruto, bleach, one piece..

I never stumbled upon an otaku, male or female. The only person i can enjoy anime with with is my brother so I'm not completely aware of this "stereotypes". All i know is that I love anime and enjoy a lot Japanese music. I set wallpapers and buy DVDs of my favorite series so i don't know if i would be considered an otaku. I also know i"m not a "fat guy" or the stereotype you used to describe them. I actually train MMA like you mentioned and enjoy the sport as much as I enjoy anime.

in most situations, for me, i never really get a chance to show i like anime unless i'm hanging around people who like anime or are atleast interested in it.

My ringtone on my phone is Moonlight Densetsu. ^_^ It's my bat call to any otaku hiding in the area. >.<



As for whether there are more male anime fans hiding out there or female, I think the men have us beat probably 2:1 /easily/... If not 3 or 4:1... When I took Japanese in college there was maybe 3 girls out of ~20 person class. When I was in high school there was like 1 girl other than me who liked anime and close to probably 10 guys. Same goes for CR, I definitely think there are more men on here than women.

Most people I know hide it cause of the idiots in this world that think anime is just for kids and judge based on that. First place I ever found other "otaku" was when I decided to take a Japanese language class, 90% of them were closet otaku's and half the class were girls xD.

Best if they keep their minds busy with anime than with most crap we have nowadays.

I'm pretty sure the fandom is nearly halved.

That would be nice because half the time I make the assumption I'm wrong.

I believe there isn't many girl otaku's because most girls don't find much anime interesting but then again they do but fan girls of yaoi and shit for me don't count as otaku's sure we can say "i don't judge" but in the future or some point we will or do and those who say otherwise are liers or just plain stupid because everyone does its human nature either ways i say there are more guys otaku's than heck because finding the right attractive girl otaku is hard and she might be pretty and all but surrounded by guy otaku's normal guys and maybe lezbians and the fight wouldn't be worth it sure you can say i'm not worth her for not fighting but spending all that time is pointless if you might be friend zoned or rejected let alone her knowing that guys want her which i'm sure is more of a fight like a near endless one and that leads to moving on and finding a new girl similar to the one before which is the same but idk maybe luck can help or something depending on the guys looks because girls are huge liers about that and deny it
