what is it?

have you personally crossed it?

I've been thinking about this recently. Just saying fuck it and "going with it" and becoming a full blown otaku.

At the moment I don't own any merch, but I watch 3 hours of anime per day on average, and spend a lot of the day on /a/.

What is the tipping point?

Any otaku advice?

>>116361123
>no merch
>only 3 hours
You're good homie, but if you do want to cross that line you've got a long way to go
>>
>>116361123
Just do what you want.

As long as you're not loud and obnoxious no one gives a fuck.

Only bring up you're into anime/manga IF people ARE interested in it.

>>116361202
don't think I can up that viewtime, have a fulltime job and all.

I spend midnight-3am on anime on weeknights pretty consistently, probably can't significantly increase that.

regarding merch; how much merch does one need? I don't really decorate rooms and stuff; like the guy in the picture has a bunch of anime posters.

I have a single jurassic park poster from 1997 hanging on my wall. that is the only poster in my home.

I really want to get into merch... have read the buyfag guide which I'm sure will be quite useful when importing, but I still don't really know what I want to buy

Being that I don't really interior decorate; I'm not sure what I would do with posters or figurines other than keeping them in original packaging to preserve value or something

>>116361360
Just buy merch of your waifu. Then gradually add pieces of shows you'll die for. And, Blamco! mac & cheese, you've got a full otaku no girls allowed room.
>>
>>116361468
other than figurines and posters; what kinds of merch would you recommend?

(this is not a rhethorical "all merch is figurines and posters", I really don't know much about the whole buyfag boku no importa scene)

the main thing I kinda want so far is some stickers, but import seems unjustifiable time and cost-wise, and I can probably just get some at vistaprint or kinkos custom ordered

It's kind of hard to define. The best you can say is that you one day realise that you're an otaku, but you're never really sure when it was you actually went from being not otaku to otaku.

Me? Definitely otaku.
>>
Not /a/ related.
>>
>being an "otaku"

Let me guess, you fags also own and wear nuturu headbands and SnK jackets.
>>
I'd judge it based on merch. Cause I mean a lot of fags here spend the whole day watching anime or shitposting about how much they hate it on here. I wouldn't call them otaku. But someone who spends every dime they have on buyfagging is an otaku in my mind.

You could wear a low profile shirt with a logo on it of some /a/ favourite. That way, normalfags will just think you wear a cool/normal/retarded shirt with a logo on it, and other /a/utists might recognize you (but they won't ever talk to you anyway)

>>116361802
but is merch really necessary?

I have thousands of dollars worth of guns, but zero merch; no manufacturer brand jackets, no hats, none of those stupid "if u break in ill shoot u xd" stickers

id say I am much more into recreational firearms than someone with a bunch of diagram posters and military manuals

isnt that the same as owning a bunch if anime box sets and no figurines?

as opposed to just collecting merch with little knowledge or experience of the subject
>>
>>116362061
We're talking about Chinese cartoons not guns. Besides, being an "otaku" is different in the west. You wouldn't call yourself a firearms otaku would you?

>>116361910

How does one become an otaku if he's too sociophobic to leave his house and get a job to buy merch?
>>
>>116361123
Too much moe (nothing wrong with moe but ->), not enough variety. His battle station is pretty neat tho
>>
>>116362149
I guess you'd call him a gun nut or maybe a gun nerd.
>>
>>116362149
to be fair, I treat anime similarly to my guns, I never bring them up unless the other person expresses interest/approval of the hobby, which has happened quite often for guns, and you can basically go to an lgs and with people there about whatever anytime you want.

I have never in my entire life spoken about anime with another live person.

there IS this one guy at my work, a member of the department I (middle) manage who said he was into anime during one of those teambuilding exercise things where everyone was introducing themselves and talking about hobbies.

I didnt immediately go "omg! me too! my waifu is... how about you?"

so I never breached the subject with the guy, but I saw him watching naruto on his workstation working late one night. anyways not planning on buddying up

but to answer your initial question, I feel more social anxiety about the anime on my computer than the gun on my hip and strewn around my house

Fuck your chinese plastic merch, fuck your waifus, fuck your blu-rays. You don't need all that shit to consider yourself an otaku or whatever label you want to put on it. I like anime and I don't need to spend thousands to prove it to anyone.
>>
OP, do some soul searching. How do you feel about your relationship with your love of anime/manga/Japan? Do you feel any awkwardness around it, and if so, why?

Because (at least once you've left high school) it's really easy to be a non-loser. If you're happy and successful and interesting and fun to be around, people will envy you and they won't care about your Japanese shit. If anything it'll rub salt in the wound because this person who should be a loser is in fact everything they wish they could be. Or, is your attitude to Japanese shit holding you back from unleashing the cool person inside of you?

Don't become boring and isolated by sticking to just this, explore other hobbies. Don't let the short term escapism distract you, decide on some goals in life and aim for them. Learn to take interest in other people. And if you make yourself an interesting person, people will take interest in you too.

'Going with it' is perfect, as long as you aren't digging yourself into a cold, depressing hole.
>>
>>116362703
Go for the food and tourism at least. Visit the tall buildings if they interest you or shrines or gardens but like >>116363265 and >>116363000 said, at least be interested in other things the country has to offer or you're just wasting money on visiting a facade.

Buying merch is not otaku unless you're a danny choo wannabe like half of /a/.

The etymology of the word otaku is the honorific form of house(as in, someone who doesn't leave his house) and the term is applied to people really obsessed with something.

>>116363564
Well, I guess I do feel awkward about it; as I said a few times, I've never told anyone I know IRL about it.

But that's not to say I think it's wrong or weird, just something to be kept private. Just like everyone has porn preferences, but you don't talk about things like that in good company.

>>
>>116361123
A "fan" at this point in common parlance is just a person who likes a thing. To an Xotaku or Xgeek just implies that there was some point at which "just liking" the thing no longer adequately described you. That can change depending on who you're around, but generally it's about the obsessive quality of your interest and whether or not it becomes intrusive on your lifestyle beyond that of a hobby. If you removed the subject of geekery from your life, what would be left? If the answer is "nothing" or something close to it, you're probably a geek by most standards.

>>
>>116364151

My definition of a weeaboo is somebody who tries to throw the fact they love anime in your face and try and make their lives as anime as possible.

An otaku is somebody such as myself who loves the shit out of chinese cartoons but never talks about them unless spoken too. From just looking at me on the street you'd never be able to tell I like anime.

Have 3 by now standing on a shelf.
I am slowly crossing the line but I never even care to find out where that line is, maybe I've crossed it long ago with the purchase of my first anime dvd.

I watch about 10 hours of anime a week and only read 100 pages of manga online. No merchandise and only two DVDs (Akira and GitS). I can't afford conventions either. And I laugh at people like this.

I'm living in Japan because my love of anime brought me here, but I don't tell people that. My Japanese friends will call me an otaku when we start talking about anime though. I think Japanese use it pretty freely, but it's not until you become an obsessive NEET neckbeard that people really care.

It still depends on the person. If you're talking to a Japanese person and you seem enthusiastic about something (anime, games, trains, whatever the fuck you're into) they might call you an otaku without being creeped out.

Average otaku weeaboo shitter: have watched over 500 series, follows every show in any given season, flamboyant about his power level, has a waifu/tulpa, has a dakimakura or two, tries or actually knows jap, because he's that much of a disgusting weeb, never had a job, NEET, virgin.

I've been over a couple times. I think you'll enjoy it more if your interest in the culture extends beyond anime (But don't get me wrong, there are moments of, "Holy shit, this looks like that cartoon crap I've been watching all this time.)

At any rate, definitely take the advice about not blowing your power level. Half the foreigners over there are into the shit on some level, and lots of Japanese are, too, but maintaining appearances is important. Don't be the foul-smelling dude in the train in an anime t-shirt with an Eva side bag. You ruin it for the rest of us.

...that said, there's a lot of great food, music, cultural events, convenient transportation, nice people, etc. etc., so definitely go if you can suppress your weeb tendencies a little and are able to adapt.

That's because police officers and soldiers dedicate their time and lives to earn the right to use lethal force because they are both physically and mentally qualified to do so. I would agree to gun laws which would require the person to complete some sort of 1 or 2 years course.

Jesus you are retarded. Police "mentally and physically qualified" maybe in your fantasy utopia land in your brain, but in reality police murder more innocent people yearly then any fag with a gun can possibly get with a high score. Police are usually high school dropouts or nepotistic bullies who love to shit on normal citizens cheerios because they can never cook anything more than a hot pocket, and they steal our tax money too while shooting us, truly even janitors are better people than them.

(Yeah, I'm not even going to quote the rest of your post even though guns clearly have other uses.)

Listen, I know how you guys are, but you have to understand that there are things in this world worth preserving even if it means using deadly force.
The life of your family, for instance.
The united states wouldn't even exist if the founding fathers held the same slave mentality as you.
You have such great fear of hurting other people that you will not even do it if it is the right thing to do; you have thrown away real moral compass and taken a fake one that hides behind passivity.
"Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do."

I think I'm merely a fan. I actually hate Japanese people after my experiences playing with them in MMOs. I was a naive 12 year old, and they were viscous toward sharing a server with Western players. They got many of the Wstern players banned, even the weeaboo GMs would scold the NA and european players. They actually coined the phrase JPONRY, as in they never would accept NA/EU players. They never even bothered to use the auto-translate features, which were a brilliant creation by SE developers. I personally had shit experiences with one such player, abusing and cursing me out trying to report me to GMs because we were competing for a boss enemy.

I also have a SJW/otaku/feminist friend who lived in Japan to teach English. He majored in Japanese in college. And he HATED it, but he didn't want to say anything racist about them. It made me seriously mad at him for being like that. The best I could get out of him is they were super racist toward him and treated him sub-human.

So I pretty much want nothing to do with Jap culture. I like their anime, their artists and creators are cool. I can enjoy what they make, they got some cute grills, but fuck them.
