1. When you fell in love with an anime character



2. When your hard disk(s) are filled up with anime



3. When you noticed yourself reading a character’s lines in a novel in the voice of their seiyuu



4. When you started staying up until early in the morning to watch late night anime in real time



5. When you started saying the lines of anime characters in actual conversation



The newest addition to the list would likely be “when you read the above list and realized all of them applied to you.”

Any other ones that ya could think of to add?

When "family time" just means watching anime on a mobile device around your family, with your headphones in.

By the time you realize you are an otaku you have been one for a long time. My "aha" moment was when I had a subscriprion to a Japanese anime magazine when I couldn't even read Japanese.

Honestly I always found it embarrassing to be called "Otaku" or to be a self-proclaimed "Otaku"
Then I came face to face with reality and just accepted the truth ;______;

When you have a life changing epiphany and that "Omedeto" moment from Evangelion happens in your head immediately afterward.

Crunchy-roll is as far as I go with anime, I do love the shows yet I have to have a real life. Fantasy is fun but reality is much better, You will never know real pain or joy staying safe from life.

You dream in Japanese with English subtitles.

Your Anime collection has overtaken your house. (Or my case--my room. ^^;; )

You realize that you've spent enough money on your hobby to buy a car (or two).

You wonder why the world doesn't speak in Japanese with English subtitles.

Your family thinks you're really awesome or completely insane when they see your collection.

You are thrown off when someone speaks to you in your native language instead of Japanese.

You have a backlog you refer to as "Mount Pileus."

You have MULTIPLE backlog piles (CDs/DVDs/Blu) that you refer to as "Mount Pileus" 1, 2, etc.

You DO NOT want to go to Japan because you're afraid of what treasures you'll want to take home with you that you can't afford...

You are more fluent in Japanese than your native language.

This is fun! (Some of these apply to me, but not all of them).
