Just because you like anime doesn't mean you are a geek.

If you watch Anime you have some geek / nerd in you.

I don't know where you have gotten your information about Real geeks vs. Non-real geeks but to me, the terms 'geek' and 'nerd' mean the same thing and are not derogatory or negative. It's merely a harmless label that people have invented to categorize people's likes and dislikes of things.

For example, If you are into anything anime-related, enjoy the performing arts (drawing, music, dance), play an instrument or two, go to conventions and cosplay, play video games, own game consoles, into the most recent technology devices, reading and writing, into Spaceballs, Star Wars, LOTR, if you are a Batman/Superman fan, etc. then you are a geek/nerd.

"The definition of geek has changed considerably over time, and there is no longer a definitive meaning. The terms nerd, gimp, dweeb, dork, spod and gump have similar meanings as geek, but many choose to identify different connotations among these terms, although the differences are disputed. In a 2007 interview on The Colbert Report, Richard Clarke said the difference between nerds and geeks is "geeks get it done."Julie Smith defined a geek as "a bright young man turned inward, poorly socialized, who felt so little kinship with his own planet that he routinely traveled to the ones invented by his favorite authors, who thought of that secret, dreamy place his computer took him to as cyberspace—somewhere exciting, a place more real than his own life, a land he could conquer, not a drab teenager's room in his parents' house."
Other definitions include:
A derogatory reference to a person obsessed with intellectual pursuits for their own sake, who is also deficient in most other human attributes so as to impair the person's smooth operation within society.
A person who is interested in technology, especially computing and new media. Geeks are adept with computers, and use the term hacker in a positive way, though not all are hackers themselves.
A person who relates academic subjects to the real world outside of academic studies; for example, using multivariate calculus to determine how they should correctly optimize the dimensions of a pan to bake a cake.
A person who has chosen concentration rather than conformity; one who passionately pursues skill (especially technical skill) and imagination, not mainstream social acceptance.
------------------>A person with a devotion to something in a way that places him or her outside the mainstream. This could be due to the intensity, depth, or subject of their interest. This definition is very broad but because many of these interests have mainstream endorsement and acceptance, the inclusion of some genres as "geeky" is heavily debated. Persons have been labeled as or chosen to identify as physics geeks, mathematics geeks, engineering geeks, sci-fi geeks, computer geeks, various science geeks, movie and film geeks (cinephile), comic book geeks, theater geeks, history geeks, music geeks,sport geeks,art geeks, philosophy geeks, literature geeks, historical reenactment geeks, video game geeks, and roleplay geeks.<---------------------------
A more recent school of thought sees nerd as being a derogatory phrase, while geek is simply a description. It is taken to be someone who is an enthusiast, often in things outside of the mainstream spectrum. It may also describe immersion in a particular mainstream interest to an extreme that is beyond normalcy (e.g. sports geek).Of note is that in this definition, there is no reference to being socially inept in the slightest."
All this is from:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geek

So basically a geek is someone who's into something or more into it than most people of where ever you live.Unless you're in Japan (or a country or place where anime is mainstream) & like anime as much as average people,then by defnition you are an ANIME GEEK .
But I'm not saying this to hurt people's feeling,I'm just saying:By definition,we're geeks but......................who cares?It just 4 letters & that can't hurt you if you don't let it.If you like or accept it,like it;If you hate it,ignore it.Just get back to watching your anime you silly little kids :D.

So what if you're a "nerd" or a "geek," which as others have mentioned are basically useless and meaningless labels now? It really doesn't matter. They could even be a good thing these days.
Posted 5/4/12
It just means you happen to like something. Simple as that and nothing more.

Definition of geek: a dull and uninteresting person.

I really don't know the real meaning of Geek. I always thought that geek and nerd are the same. So there's more to the word Geek.
Posted 5/4/12
Apparently no one read my post about what is considered a geek. It still applies today as well, but it seems to have lost it's place as a social group.
