If you don't know what an otaku is, it is a person who is obsessed and dedicates their life to animes, manga, video games, doujinshi, ecetera.

This above all, thine own self be true.

Huh, interesting thread. *Points to his title* I'd say so, since there's more Anime stuff in my apartment than normal stuff - my computer has numerous anime pictures and wallpapers (all thanks to mt!). I have more videos / DVD's of anime then normal DVD's, etc. etc. the list keeps going on.

Yeah, I'd say I'm one. I'll tell you a big clue: I'll sit and watch anime and start squeeling over the Nihon voice actors, like "omg it's Noriyaki Sugiyama!" or "Kyaaaaah, it's Romi Pakuuu!" or "It's Kamui from X!" Aheh, I have over three hundred anime/game/j-music cds; I was talking to a friend on the phone and he was watching amvs and just from hearing them I could name the song and the show off...yeah, it scared him. I have a couple grands worth of anime and manga as well, and it's just the begining of my collecting. One of my friends thinks it's cute when I get worked up over anime, she said "Like a four year old with a pound of ice cream." My other friends think I'm a freak, though. But hey, this is my passion. I only wish I could find a job in life that would let me incorperate my otaku-dome--I would be the happiest person on earth.

Seriously. Where on earth did you get that definition from -.-
Otaku does not mean anime freak etc.
Otaku is japanese for nerd,geek in general.

ok, how otaku?
level 1- watches anime read manga collects them
lvl2- watch, read listen and love anime music to have MP3 player full of them
lvl3- eat and sleep with own dvds
lvl4- wakes up to the sound of a bishoujo calling: Ohayo Koshujinsama and wears anime -themed shirts out to social gatherings and cosplay is normal
lvl5- smokes anime cigarettes, with girls printed on the filters
lvl6 - at this point, you will only masturbate to hentai, nothing else interest you, your life full of anime, your dictionary has no other word, you think you have a anime girlfriend, your life revolves on a low level paying job(because you can't dedicate time to work as you miss your fav series), you still live with your mom when 40years old, you celebrate your birthday dressed as a anime character and sing to yourself as there are probably no friends who can understand you attending it, your bank account is booked in advance of certain investments for sites that you can download anime series that you like, and mostly, you spend your time in this site until you forget what day or time of the day is.....

i believe i am level 2....i write in forums more, but however, i like walling, that is why i am in here

For the most part, people don't understand what it means to be an otaku. There are anime fans - they listen to music, read manga and watch anime. They like it. Some of them really like it, they start cosplaying and blahblahblah.
Otaku is not about attributes, it's not about how much anime you have on your shelves. I've been an anime fan for a few years. I've been an otaku for five years. It feels very different. For an anime fan anime is just another source of entertainment - they watch, they become fangirlish and switch their preferences every time they see a new anime. Otaku is different. It's when anime and your life merge and you just... it's not like you can't live without it or anything. It's just there. Absolutely natural. Like breathing or going to school or whatever. Being an otaku is difficult and I am sure it's... well, people shouldn't be proud of it. Because otaku are fanatics. "Otaku" in Japanese means something like psycho. ^^' I am not proud of the title... it's how I said. It's there. Natural.

-> Well, I'm divided between an Otaku or a Auto-freak (a person who likes cars a lot). I can talk between two topics at the same time.

bt-> I watch a lot of Animes (lately), read a lot of Mangas (ever since), listening to Anime-related J-Pop music, likes JDM cars, loves sushi, plays GT4, love my PS2, into the sport of drifting, and I love my WRX. So I'm not just an anime freak but most of Japanesse culture (about 60% thou) itself! Maybe I'm a different type of Otaku. (:

-> I think the proof of my obsession between these cultures, will be inthe manga that I'm currently developing. It shows most of my interests and hobbies, but its not an autobiography or something. Check my link on my sig to get a clue. (:

It depends on what you mean by otaku. If you mean I have no life outside of anime/manga, then no. If you mean I like anime/manga alot, then yes.

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

I am definitely an Otaku and in more ways then one! I ve been classifing myself as Otaku for a long time. I even nicknamed myself Akito a while (thats Otika backwards and Otika means Otaku). Well yeah, I ve also had the chance to watch rare anime, the list is on a thread on my GuestBook, if you want to see it.
