Okay, I know the title is very controversial, so i'll probably get a lot of shit. Despite that, I will try my best to keep it as nice as possible.

Over the years, I have never met a woman who was into Anime as much as I am. Even when I went to Anime conventions, the women I got to know were only into mainstream Anime everybody knows about (DBZ, Fairy Tail, etc.) Now, I am aware of circumstances such as not knowing the right people, and the fact that there are women who are major Otakus/Weeaboos. Even so, due to my experience so far, I have not met a woman who was majorly into Anime and again, part of this is my fault.

So, my question is: Are there any women here who are big into Anime?

Now, what you consider "Being big into Anime" varies and is another topic for another day, but for this thread, here are some requirements:

- At least over 100+ Anime on their list
- Knowing terms such as "Seme" and "Uke"
- Knowing the tropes and cliches in Anime as well.

GO!

Not that many titles but the women I have met are really into the Cosplay aspect almost more than just watching anime tbh

Completely off-topic, but I wanted to mention that "At least over 100+" was so redundant that it made me cringe.

Don't blame you. I wanted to be nice about it. Maybe 200 - 500+ would have been better after all...

I only know of one woman who meets those requirements of yours but she isn't on the forums here.

Yes, but you wouldn't think so from prevailing attitudes.

I encounter women at Anime Detour every year. Maybe they're heavily into anime, but I don't know. Lots of them cosplay as anime characters, too.

I'm probably the type of woman you're looking for. I've seen over 800 anime (heading towards 900). Of course, I know the terms "seme" and "uke" (I'm a yaoi fangirl after all). I also know the tropes and such as well. The only thing is that you probably won't see me at anime conventions because I have a driving phobia and my parents don't have time to take me themselves.

That would've been me 5 years ago, but I have drastically declined on the anime I've watched the past few years xD I have watched 400+ (or maybe even more) anime and some manga. Sadly I'm not big into anime anymore.

None of my friends watch anime nor I know someone irl who does, but I have an online friend who is literally obsessed with anime and watches most anime every season xD so yes they do exist.

By your definition I'm probably considered "big into anime"
-I've completed 102 seasons of anime and currently watching 9 (although it may not be 102 different series because some have multiple seasons) http://myanimelist.net/animelist/toryleafy
-I definitely know my seme and uke
- and I know many tropes and cliches (perhaps not all but quite a few)

Also, there may be some truth to what you're saying. Although there are many girls who are "big into anime", there might not be as many as guys because of the large amount of series that cater fanservice to guys and not nearly as much to girls.
