Well, considering we have well over twice as many people living here, possibly. The only reason I don't say yes is because anime is much bigger in Japan than anywhere else. Not too mention I'm fairly certain a smaller % of Americans actually are into anime in general.

Given the times I have spent in Japan I'd have to lean more towards Japan having more than any other country. Though to be fair, I'd be willing to put money down that an American otaku is much easier to spot than a Japanese otaku. They aren't as open about some things as we are. Culture plays a part in that I bet.

No. There are only a few thousand of us, at most, and our community is so self-destructive that the numbers have either negligible or negative growth.

No. The last waifu war claimed many of us.

I like to believe that everyone's a closet otaku so yes we have more!

there are probably more asians into anime, though it's hard to determine where someone hails from and lives

Considering how anime is much bigger and popular in Japan, I would have to say Japan has the most anime otaku but America has the most football otaku so if the question is only who has the most otaku then it would have to be America.

Probably not, though I think that might change. Anime seems to be getting more popular and I think our generation is gonna be more accepting of our kids, being way to into a foreign cartoon medium lol.

Well Japan only has 1/3 the population of the US.....

Might be close in raw numbers if you include pokeyman fans.

Arranged otaku marriage is a bit too far, I'd say.
