Until you can identify the troupes. Laugh at them or get tired of them.

Over 100 Anime on your list is past the newbie line for me. Over 50 for Manga; Light Novels count as Manga read for your list.

I still feel like a newb. I've seen more anime than I can remember. Been watching anime for over a decade and a half.

I did devise a bit of a test not too long ago, though (for kicks, really):

If you can name only 25 anime without the use of any sort of guide you are still a newb.

If you can name 50 anime that aren't Dragonball, Bleach, One Piece, or Naruto and do so without using any sort of guide then I'd say you have lost your noobness and graduated to moderate fandom.

If you can name 100 anime without listing multiple entries in one franchise, without listing movies, and without listing anime you haven't actually seen then you are an anime sensei.

If you can name 200 or more without listing multiple entries in one franchise, without listing movies, and without listing anime you haven't actually seen then you are an anime god and can see the ending.

If you can watch shows like fate/kaleid liner prisma illya or shows with alot of ecchi etc. an not be feel bad for watching it then you aren't a new anime fan lol.

It doesn't matter how many animes you've seen or how many you've watched. You stop being a noob once you start watching non-mainstream anime and understand anime seasons.

I don't think whether or not people considering you a new anime fan or not really matters.

I will say mayo may be on to something though. It becomes a bit obvious when someones been watching anime for awhile. Take me for example. Sometimes I'm watching anime with some friends who don't watch it as often and it's kinda obvious they don't quite get something and I'm there laughing my head off and when I turn to look at them they have that look of I don't get it.

So I guess once you reach that point you can declare yourself a veteran anime fan.:D

I consider myself to no longer be a new anime fan when a certain Kami acknowledges that I am worthy of being bestowed the honor of being referred to as a seasoned anime fan.
