Hi.
This is a thread that I've wanted to make for a while. I'm pretty active on image boards and forums involving anime, and thus have I created an image of a stereotypical anime fan in my head. I'm probably not the only one who think they are like I imagine, at least if they don't have any other friends who watch anime, like me.
I want to see if my stereotypical view is right or wrong by having you guys answer some of my questions.

Age?
Gender?
Relationship?
Country?
Hobbies besides anime?
Have you attended in any anime cons - how many?
Do you have any clothes inspired or with anime characters/theme?
Any anime inspired jewellery?
Any anime figures or other objects?
How do you dress, normally?
Do you cosplay?
Do you use any japanese words when talking(baka, kawaii etc.)?
How would you describe yourself?
Do your friends watch anime?
How is anime's reputation where you live?
At what age did you become interested in anime?
Do you also read manga?
How many hours a day do you watch anime?
Do you use any emoticons except normal smileyfaces( , , :D) when chatting (xD, ^^, :3 etc.)

Favorite genre(s)?
Favorite anime(s)?


If anyone else has some questions they feel might be interesting, please leave a comment.

Thank you.

Can you add "you're stereotypical anime person" I would gladly see that. I don't have any stereotype for anime people at all, but I did before I came into it and it was basically the stereotype which says "Anime is for kids" which I figured out, WAS WRONG <.<

What is your stereotype? I don't feel like answering the questions ... cause there are so many of them -.-!!! Might come back later to answer them.

You know I do want to answer, but then this might get locked and I would have wasted time. I'll come back in a hour to edit this if this is still open.


I don't see why this should get locked, he basically asks general questions about anime and then some personal questions which I and many others already have added under our profile picture *which you see when posting this* -.- But then again, I don't if there are other topics like this, which then I would say go ahead <.<

This are some of the things i imagine anime fans looks like: colored hair, wears some t-shirt with their favorite anime character, maybe some jewellery(akatsuki rings, or something), within a group of other anime fans, draws alot, speaks with some japanese words now and then, wears colorful clothes, piercing.

This is what I imagine, because I don't know any other anime fans, and the only place I've seen one is on the internet, which often portraits them more extreme than they probably are.

Seems fun. :3:

Age?
19½

Gender?
Cyborg (wannabe)

Relationship?
Figuring out how to flirt with this one person i like

Country?
Midgard

Hobbies besides anime?
Gaming and Clothing
Have you attended in any anime cons - how many?

Do you have any clothes inspired or with anime characters/theme?
Yes! Making my own styles. Mostly inspired by games, not anime.

Any anime inspired jewellery?
Maybe this one claw ring i have.

Any anime figures or other objects?
Milla from the Tales of Xillia limited edition. She's drawn with Anime style in the game so she counts as an anime figurine. Also the Tales of series are often adapted into anime after the games!

How do you dress, normally?
Casual but with many details. I would put on more fun stuff if it didn't made me feel stared at.

Do you cosplay?
No. I would not have a problem to model but making the fabrics and styling yourself is time consuming.

Do you use any japanese words when talking(baka, kawaii etc.)?
Starting to after watching anime continously every day for half a year...

How would you describe yourself?
Epic..?

Does your friends watch anime?
No. And that's depressing but whatever. I got you crunchies!

How is anime's reputation where you live?
Okay. It still has alot of people who completely hate on it. If i so much as mention it they just say no and insult it. Since it's my biggest hobby i take it as an insult to me and stop seeing them! Hmpph! Some people truly love it. But most don't know about Crunchyroll. This has made me consider becoming a Crunchyroll ambassador where i live. To let people know of the site.

At what age did you become interested in anime?
Since Pokémon..

Do you also read manga?
No books at all. I have trauma to the shape of books. Also hate flipping sides, i always skip one on mistake.

How many hours a day do you watch anime?
2-10 hours

Do you use any emoticons except normal smileyfaces when chatting
Yes. But i'm trying to stop myself more and more. If i write on instinct, i can use a smiley after each sentence. And it makes me stick out as much as it does if i'd wear my favorite clothes in the city. So i limit my smiley usage, and as said above my fashion sense.

Favorite genre(s)?
School Life. Action. Romance. Comedy/Parody.
Favorite anime(s)?
Golden Time. Sword Art Online. Code Geass. Full Metal Panic: Fumoffu? Haiyore! Nyaruko-san. Bleach. Nyan Koi. Cuticle Detective Inaba. and the list goes on! To be honest i didn't expect the anime to become better and better, but Golden Time is my all time favorite romance and it's made this year, still airing. So i love both old and new anime!

FFXIV, drinking with friends, Hulu/Netflix, dodging debt collectors, work
Have you attended in any anime cons - how many?
Just one, AnimeNEXT. Haven't been to one in 4 years now, however
Do you have any clothes inspired or with anime characters/theme?
Don't think so. Maybe a tshirt I forgot about.
Any anime inspired jewellery?
SOS keychain hanging from rear-view mirror (car), also a character from clannad hangs with it, gift from one of those unrequited type dealies when she returned from japan.
Any anime figures or other objects?
Purchased a handmade wooden box painted to the theme of Haruhi, about it.
How do you dress, normally?
Slacks, button up most of the time. Otherwise jeans and hoodie.
Do you cosplay?
No. Might be able to pull of Yachirobi, hue.
Do you use any japanese words when talking(baka, kawaii etc.)?
Only time I speak any japanese is if I were ever to find someone to practice the language with in person. In FFXIV I often type japanese, however, to communicate with others on a very elementary level. :x
How would you describe yourself?
Fat yet surprisingly handsome in the face. Afraid of girls who are peers, especially if I find them attractive. Try my best to not avoid them but the urge is second nature to escape conflict. Otherwise slightly outgoing but rather annoying personality at times. Quick emotional swings based on specific triggers though only by people I trust. I tend to be more evenly mooded around people I don't know well.
Does your friends watch anime?
A couple.
How is anime's reputation where you live?
No one admits it so it never comes up in casual conversation unless you try hard to initiate it. Often times doing so may alienate you from people, even if said people also enjoy it- many like keeping such facts to themselves inter-personally.
At what age did you become interested in anime?
14
Do you also read manga?
rarely
How many hours a day do you watch anime?
0-12, really depends on free time and/or I'm in an anime phase, phases usually last 1-2 months before I drop it for a while
Do you use any emoticons except normal smileyfaces when chatting (xD, ^^, :3 etc.)
All too often.
Favorite genre(s)?
Slice of life, comedy, romantic comedy
Favorite anime(s)?

Tough call. All time is Cowboy Bebop, more relevant and recent ones are Suzumiya Haruhi and, hm... I liked Watamote a lot.

I guess so, the mastery of the arcane and infinite wisdom seem so irrelevant during your youth that you would forsake that great power of elemental destruction for T&A :P

Eh, I'll give it a shot.

Age?
17
Gender?
Male
Relationship?
Single
Country?
England
Hobbies besides anime?
Music, voice acting, drawing cartoons/anime, playing games, writing stories and songs
Have you attended in any anime cons - how many?
No but I'd like to one day.
Do you have any clothes inspired or with anime characters/theme?
I have a T-shirt with Chun-Li from Street Fighter on it if that counts.
Any anime inspired jewellery?
Nope.
Any anime figures or other objects?
No.
How do you dress, normally?
Usually I wear jogging bottoms/normal trousers and a tartan shirt.
Do you cosplay?
I have done as Alex Mercer from the game Prototype but apart from the specific leather jacket; a grey hoodie, white dress shirt and jeans are all I really needed.
Do you use any japanese words when talking(baka, kawaii etc.)?
Very rarely and even then only jokingly. I have English and as such I like to stick with it.
How would you describe yourself?
Just a teenager who's in the house most of the day doing what he enjoys. I'd read my 'about me' section if you want more detail on that.
Does your friends watch anime?
Yes, about 3 or 4 of them do.
How is anime's reputation where you live?
I honestly don't know. What I can tell you is in one of my A Level English Language lessons, one of the sources we had to analyze was the back of one of the Full Metal Alchemist novels. When someone told my teacher it was an anime she said 'Oh,like Pokemon?' so I'd assume because mainly animes for a younger audience are popular, most people over here assume it's a medium aimed at kids. In the end it's one of those things most people don't like to mention unless they're talking about it with someone who also likes it.
At what age did you become interested in anime?
About 8 or 9 years old I think. But I didn't start properly watching a lot until a year or two ago because I now have my PC in my room and as such don't have anyone else in here to see what I'm doing. Since then I've probably seen a few thousands of hours worth...yeah.
Do you also read manga?
I'm reading one at the moment, but it's the only one I've ever properly taken up. I prefer anime because I like the colour, sound and movement which I can't be bothered to constantly piece together when I'm reading.
How many hours a day do you watch anime?
Depends. Usually 2-3 hours, but sometimes I'll get through an entire season and a bit if it keeps my attention grabbed for long enough.
Do you use any emoticons except normal smileyfaces when chatting (xD, ^^, :3 etc.)
Yes, most commonly 'XD'. I do it because otherwise people can't tell I'm joking and think I'm serious about a lot of the dark stuff that I say.
Favorite genre(s)?
Well I'll openly try most of them so I have a few. Romance, Action, Slice of life if it's done right, and thrillers. I'm usually not too big on Mech anime's but I loved Fullmetal Panic and Code Geass.
Favorite anime(s)?
I've seen so many I honestly can't remember them all so I don't even want to try and list them.
