Was this even English? I've no clue what you were trying to say here.



your either stupid or retarded re-read and try and decipher and if you say how it isn't english you must make no attempt to read and are obviously retarded

I think animes like "Sailor Moon" & stuff really made it okay for girls to come out & say they like anime too. I generally see more girl cosplayers when I go to conventions & stuff though.
Honestly for me, I love everything: anime, manga, games, cosplay, etc. I'm very open about it.
I don't see why it should be a secret?

I'm a female otaku and have met plenty of other girl anime fans, although location does matter. Most of my female otaku friends i meet at anime clubs and conventions. I've found it rather difficult to really find them in "everyday life." Most people kind of hide it, sadly, tho I don't know why! it's nothing to be shy or ashamed of. ^_^

In my anime club that has about 50 members, with about 30+ as regulars, there's one female, and she is a horrid creature. Kinda ruined my expectations of female otakus (she's also HARDCORE otaku, as in, dresses in full Lolita fashion every day on campus). I mean, there's nothing bad with being a hardcore otaku, because I guess I am one, but I still limit myself in social settings. If I ever meet a female anime-lover that typical anime makes them out to be, I'm pretty sure they'll be my insta-wife.


I wish there was a club that large around where i live!

I don't like the term either...especially since the japanese don't use it in a flattering way. An Otaku in japan is a guy who is completely obsessed with anime and manga, especially bishoujo anime and dating sims. The fact the american girls into anime call themselves this only strikes me that they don't really understand the term. Btw, I'm a girl, enjoy some and anime and love ancient japanese culture. I would never ever call myself an otaku.

I am a girl who enjoys anime, and I consider yaoi a curse to the entire culture, lol.

I know exactly what it means & I still call myself an otaku.
Most ppl know the origins of the word, but who cares about what it used to mean?
Meanings for words change all the time, & the word "otaku" isn't used in a bad way anymore.
Infact, I never recall it being used in a negitive way at all.
It's always just reflected your love of something.

It shouldn't be a secret, but at the same time I'm not gonna beat anyone's heads over telling them that I watch some anime. Keyword: SOME. Not A LOT. So then that doesn't make me this otaku or nerd that I know someone in this thread is gonna claim I am.

Oh, and there are some guys like me that are into Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon as well. But you probably know this already, in my case. I'm not afraid to tell that ether.

well, I'm not going to judge somebody who calls themselves that...and my dislike of the term probably is connected to my aversion to officially joining the anime fan base, mainly because of the strange stuff I like (I'm an artist and amatuer writer with a love for retro) and my dislike of things like yoai....in other words, i"m an alternative to alternative culture:P

I've actually known quite a few female otaku that don't quite fit the stereotype. Take my roommate for example. She's really into fitness, works as a surgery technician, and is one of my few drinking buddies, lol. Also, the anime club I was in back at the university I went to was mostly female.

In regards to males generally being introverted, that's fairly true for the most part out of the guys I've known (and still know). Personally I think the only reason I'm not quite as introverted is because I've always been in customer service jobs that require me to be extroverted. Environmental conditioning I suppose? Though I think only 2-3 of the guys that I know that are into anime are even what I'd consider 'husky.' Mileage seems to vary quite a bit based on location though.

At my school, we have a fair amount of girls into anime...and they don't need to say anything. However, these girls could be, unfortunatly, used as an example about other anime fans in america. They tend to wear shredded, out of style clothing, dyed hair, strange piercings, and hang in clumps. Nothing against trying to be unique of course, but I believe that one should try to find flattering. unique and stylish clothing to fit her own personality. Anyway, I may be offending somebody,, and this is not a post about clothes, but appearences are where the stereotypes about anime lovers come from, so some attention should be paid to it. This is why some people may be shy about releasing info about their love of anime...they don't want to be put into a class, a "type" of person. And that is me, about most things. Before I share something, I want to know I won't be ridiculed....I want to make a good impression first.

If I had to describe myself as an otaku, I would. I watch a wide range of anime, shojo, shonen, drama, comedy, ecchi and yes, some yaoi and yuri. I pretty much watch it as long as I find it interesting. Most of the people I know that watch anime are guys who tend to cluster together to discuss video games, anime and random sports. The majority of girls I know have at least heard of anime, but don't watch it. They watch shows like Bad Girls Club and Dancing with the Stars....stuff that I can't stomach... Ugh....

I guess I would fit the stereotype of being an introverted otaku, but I don't see the whole point in worrying about it any. Anime and video games are what I like.

If there are female "otaku," then where are they? All the female peers I know are BORING and we could never connect on any level.

Okay, bit of an unfair, frustrated exaggeration there. I'm not a sexist.
