Jeez, you people make me feel inadequate. Let's see...

I spent a few years as a staff member for a decently-sized anime site/forum. Although it shut down a decade ago, so I'd be shocked (and rather disturbed) if anyone actually managed to guess which.

My game/movie cabinet has a couple anime DVD sets in it.

I have a subscription to CR.

That's.. really all I've got.

Hmm well i have watched alot of anime, i own a anime dvd collection, i own a hentai collection, i own a reasonable amount of anime figurines and wallscrolls, i have an anime phone cover, go to the local anime/video game convention every year, no girlfriend, live by myself, wear glasses, not in the best shape(used to be skinny as Snoop dogg now have a bit of a beer belly), some people at work think i will come in and shoot everyone one day(lol), have a reputation for likeing Japanese girls/Asian girls and young girls(younger women), Have done alot of hentai surfing in the past, i make my friends watch j pop videos at our piss ups sometimes(lol), i play video games alot, half tried to learn how to draw manga and learn Japanese, used software to make manga, i like computers and can build a computer, etc

But, i am a hip hop head, go to hip hop concerts, am fairly social(as far as i go out and hang around people quite alot at times), i moved out of home(lol), lots of my anime merch is all put away in boxes, i dont play Japanese games much anymore(like i used to, i play more western games), i dont read manga, i dont ONLY watch anime subtitled(although i have not watched a dub for some time), iam not obsessed with Japanese food, have not been to Japan, i like sport, i wasn't a geek in school (was shy though), etc

So i guess i have some traits of an otaku but at the same time not overly.

EDIT: oh i do own one of those anime pillows and some anime blow up dolls (lmao, they just decorations, i dont open the boxes, honest..), one of those mouse pads with the boobs, i backed tentacle grape on kick starter, i do buy Japanese snacks like pocky sometimes and drink Japanese beer sometimes, i bought some Japanese school uniforms and got my sister and one of her friends to wear them and come to an anime convention with me, used to watch lots of tentacle porn , i've seen those live action tentacle movies and bukkae an that, so maybe i am fairly otaku?
lol nar just a pervert i guess
I leave the house and am around people too much to be a real otaku. Dont spend the cash on anime stuff like i used to either.

When I was younger I collected manga and I had around 300 volumes. Now I'm trying to sell them since I have no space for them (it was so much easier when I lived with my parents!)
On top of that I watch anime almost on a daily basis, if not then I'm probably playing something.
I love cute anime girls, they're almost like my fetish...
I also play visual novels a lot, my fave ones being BL or otome.
When really drunk I usually embarrass myself by singing "Okkusenman" out loud. I love that song...
Other than that I don't think I'm much of an otaku, since I'm really outgoing and like to meet new people.

Yeah i cant afford to buy anime stuff anymore, for the most part. When i lived at home spent hell cash on it. And yeah i dont have the room or dont want it all on display because dont want to seem TOO creepy ^^;
I dont watch anime anywhere near like i used to. I go through phases where i watch alot but then wont watch any(or very little) for long periods.
Oh yeah i forgot about visual novels and dating sims and that. I guess i haven't played all that many of them and its pretty rare that i play them.
I have alot that i have never played.
Must admit i still really like anime girls but yeah i think at one pount when i was younger i went through that phase where i prefered or found anime girls more attractive than real, and hentai over real porn.
Yup, i like going to bbq's n parties an concerts and pubs, etc. But i like having alone time alot also.

I own a decent amount of manga volumes. I only go out when I have to go to school, and all of my free time is dedicated to watching anime and reading manga. I'd say I'm more of an otaku than a lot of the people who call themselves otaku and are proud of it. I'm not exactly proud of it, nor do I lament it. I like to indulge in comfort, and anime gives me comfort.

I'm Japanese so I see the term "otaku" as its original derogatory form. Well, the derogatory term comes to mind first anyway, it's fine that it's become something more light-hearted

I have quite a bit of merch, but I'd say 2/3 were gifts from family and friends over the years. I am getting back into buying manga though.

I was pretty casual at watching anime until the end of 2013. I pretty much doubled the amount I've watched from when I was ages 3-18 in just 2 years. I've basically watched over 100 tv series/ovas/specials/movies/etc in 2014 as well as this year.

Japanese culture in general, is just a natural thing with me, so there's no need for me to talk about any of that.

I suck at games except for pokemon so I don't game.

I'm not an introvert and anime hardly exists in my social life as my friends aren't as interested in it anymore.

I was decently fit until I quit baseball and graduated high school. Baseball is huge on the Japanese side of my family, and if you've seen Ace of the Diamond, that's what a lot my childhood was like. When I think about it though, I only put around 80% effort into baseball compared to the characters that probably put 120% effort into it.

I had some serious health issues early 2014, so I took time off school and I've been a NEET ever since. I've been making efforts at getting a job, but I think I'm just gonna go back to school sometime early-mid 2016.

Basically I'm just a Japanese guy who watches a lot of anime. I don't really consider myself as an otaku.

I guess I don't fit the bill.

I mean I like my anime/games, but they aren't the only things I focus on.

I like anime quite a bit, but I don't think I'm full blown Otaku.

Well based on your Criteria:
-I only own 1 volume of Yu-Gi-Oh! and Complete Bebop series but I'm getting the first 3 Vagabond Vizbigs for christmas

-I do game and watch anime but in the last 2 weeks I've spent around than 5 hours doing both

-I'm not overweight. I'm quite skinny

-(skipping this one)

-I really like sports. I'm part of a Hockey team and I want to play tennis and table tennis more reguarly

-I live with my parents but I'm only 14 so it's cool

-I study at school lol, of course

-I do learn a bit of Japanese in my free time and Computer Science is easily my favourite subject

-I'm not a pervert. I don't watch porn

-I don't cosplay but I may when I'm in uni once in a while

- I'm still a virgin but that's good as I'm only 14 and can't even legally have sex

Overall, I'm not an otaku. My obsession for anime has weakened massively as I've realised how cringy the fandom and shows can be.

220 gigs? Jesus.. That cracked me up.

Gaming and watching anime are definitely my main thing. If you ask me what I'm doing its almost always one of those two.

I do plan on cosplaying one day at a con. What? I'd make a perfect Vergil? Pfft I already know that.

I don't own any anime merchandise unless you count Ichigo's zanpakuto which is battle ready.

I'm not overweight, my dad wouldn't accept it and neither will I.

Still a virgin. I've done quite a few things with women but I haven't gone that far cause they were just.. Entertainment?
