    Default Serious Business

    Ha! Read the rules, searched the forum, and this thread is mine! Bingo! Oki Doki now

    How serious of an anime fan are you? I mean this in both ways, void of value judgments.

    Cosplay: I've never done cosplay but I admire people who (are good it) when they attend. Some make homemade, others buy them. If I were to go, it would be to connect with people...girls

    Club: I have usually been a member of anime clubs but I always felt disconnected from most of the others. Seems very cliquish overall..I just wanna watch some anime, talk to girls and eat some pocky!

    I love anime but some people are immersed...baptized in the Otaku waters, christened to kick katamari tail! Charging the forums with wiimotes of steel to skin baka spammers like sashimi eel!!

    So how deep are you?

    I watch anime and occasionally read manga and nothing else.

    Cosplay

    I've been trying to find time to cosplay. I was even going to cosplay this year for Otakon. But, time got to me. I had several camps and events right before the convention and was unable to prepare =/ I will be cosplaying next year, that's pretty much confirmed. I enjoy looking at cosplay. I go around displaying my geek powers to my friends by naming as many characters as I can =3 I took about 300 cosplay pictures this year. Yes, yes I know it's not much. But the reason I didn't take more was because my camera has a crappy 1 gig memory card. Seriously, that's pathetic. Next year, I'll be bringing two 8 gig memory cards. One for video, and one for photos.

    Club

    As far as school clubs go, I don't really connect to well. My schools anime/manga related clubs focus on watching or drawing respectively. Sure, it's fun to watch anime with friends, but the discussion is what's fun! Simply put, the clubs I'm around are not intense enough for me. Hence, I hang around on forums and discuss with my one true anime pal in school =D

    General

    I believe my anime/manga craze sparked out of my RPG obsession. I wanted to get away from MMOs. They were absolutely raping my life. So, I saw my cousin watching Law of Ueki on his Ipod and rediscovered anime. I knew what it was up to then, but was never too interested in it. I got home, opened up google, and here I am today. Obsessed with manga and anime for three years now, and the intensity has yet to fade.




    In summary, I'd have to say I'm quite obsessed.

    Hmm, I'm not sure. :3
    I really enjoy the artwork that goes into it. -^,...,^-
    And I might go to a cosplay soon, but my dad would say no. I know him. T.T

    Cosplay - Never done it. I suppose I would, though, if I were going to a convention, and had the means of making/getting the costume. I've already said I'd go as Cobra Commander. Other than that, I'd probably be someone from bleach, or something easy. but I'll probably never do it

    Clubs - I've been in them when I was in school, one was pretty cool - we watched anime, learned about Japan, and learned a bit of Japanese. It was a Japanese class and teacher that hosted it. I enjoyed that. I think we watched Fushigi Yuugi and Escaflowne, and Captain Tylor. And one other. It was dependent on who had what, and we sadly didn't have a lot. I was in middle school, torrents didn't exist yet.

    General - I used to read manga infrequently. I watch anime, but I tend to focus on one series till it's done or on hiatus, and then get into a new one. Hence, I'm still watching Bleach. I will probably check out Code Geass next. I've seen more than I think I have, when I sit and think about it. I've liked anime for a long time.

    Cosplay - I'm not cosplay material. 'nuff said.

    Clubs - Was in one in highschool, but that's about as far as an official 'club' setting went for me. Don't mind hanging out for the occasional anime binge, though.

    General - Almost in need of an intervention, probably, but not quite yet. Been watching & collecting for years (started w/ Dragonball & Sailor Moon when I was a kid) & while my desire isn't fading, the list of stuff I'm trying to buy is. Just the rest of Urusei Yatsura & some manga series then I'll be pretty much up to date.
    Just remember, when life gives you lemons make chocolate milk & force the rest of the world to wonder how the hell you did it.



    That was pretty cool. I should always chuck a bifurcated corpse in front of me when I need to make an entrance.

    Cosplay- Man if I had the time and knew about the anime cons ahead of time, I'd so cosplay as something

    Clubs- There was never an anime club at my high school, and not many of my friends are into anime.

    Well I've never cosplayed before, nor have I been in any clubs before. I think I watch too much anime though, but I have watched it from a long time ago and will continue doing so in the future. I've watched soo much of it that I don't even have half of it on my list. Manga is not my fave, but I do like the Detective Conan manga.
    If Minecraft had a Japanese intro.

    Cosplay - Never. Ever.

    Clubs: I would join one, given it is not manditory to go and free. I typically hate anime fans, so unless it's an old school crowd that doesn't fawn over the latest Kanon doll or Dir En Gray, I'd be more than willing to join. I prefer to be in my own bubble when I watch anime though.

    I'm somewhat serious about it, just not as much as my other hobbies. I know my terms, visit ANN daily and see what's going on, but I prefer to watch anime and read manga at my own pace. I despise people who feel the need to watch everything coming out every season just to be able to say they've seen everything.

    i don't hate anime fans cuz i'm one but i know what ur saying. i think its cool to have your hobbies/interests but to keep things in perspective.

    some people are so serious about it that it borders delusion. the worse ones have no sense of humor, and isn't that ironic? to be cartoon obsessive and without levity...

    If being serious a serious anime fan means making it the core of my very existence, hell no. I'm certainly not.

    How do i say this without looking like i'm bragging about how 'wise' i am 'bout the subject? Ok here goes nothing...

    Cosplay: No, i've never done it.

    Clubs: Nah, not my thing. Considering how anime is a well accepted form of entertainment here in the Philippines, these so-called anime clubs aren't even necessary. From what i know, most westerners form clubs because it serves as a get-together for the lonely and the few, and secondly it serves as an additional provider of anime. Here clubs do exist as well but they are either a) mainly cosplay-related, or b) art-related (or c) elitism-related s***). I don't need clubs because i don't cosplay, i'm not Japanese-particular when it comes to my art, and i'm definitely NOT one of those 'C' people. When it comes to having someone to talk 'bout anime, i'm not lacking - just refer to the 2nd sentence of this paragraph if you're asking why.

    General: Serious, uh i really think i'm not but due to circumstance, i may be considered one. I'm not bragging but forgive me if you think i am, to those people who act too high and mighty towards anime as if they've seen everything, try me. There are people who just love to do long lists of anime and claim they've seen all of it, calling themselves serious anime fans in the process. I hate how these 'hardcore fans' act elitist towards those who aren't too 'hardcore' as them.

    I'm not gonna claim how much of a sage i am 'bout the subject matter but yes i've seen tons, perhaps a long list that overshadows (double? triple? quadruple?) those made by the 'hardcore' ones. I could give mine - with timeslots and when, where, and how i've watched 'em, seriously. Anime is such a common thing from where i am and i've grown up watching it mainly because it's on TV. I'm not the kind of fan who can give you info like "in episodes 5, 6, and 7 *insert anime character name* slew *insert another name*" but i certainly am one who've enjoyed watching without being too immersed.

    I'm just like the average American dad who enjoys watching baseball games on TV. I don't have all these home-ran balls with the slugger's signature on it, but i certainly enjoyed watching how that ball flew over the heads of the fans. You do get it? Right?

    Serious anime fan? Yes maybe, but circumstantially.

    I'm fairly serious about a few anime shows, as well as the manga they originated from. Other than that, I'm pretty normal.

    I am a huge one for sure. I have never gone to a con and cosplayed but only cause I never had the money. But I'll do a lot of what some people might say different things for anime. There is to many to list though ^_^. I have thought about joining some clubs but only on other forums and stuff not clubs where you have to meet once a week or anything.

    Serious? umm Yes and No

    Cosplay: Never done it but don't rule it out (Then again where i live we have only had our first "Anime con" last year)
    Clubs: Don't exist where I live and online forums are about as close as I get
    Generally: I am serious about my own obsession and promote it to myself whenever possible(Which means I tend to watch whatever/whenever)
    I am not like a screaming fanboy tho going around spouting Japanese gibberish all over the place but I like to think I am a big fan despite all that.
    So I probably am in deepish but still floating on the surface of fandom.

    Well....

    Cosplay: I do it. Love it. Couldn't live without it. Its a ton of fun, and conventions are never the same without it. I like to be dressed in the often times Frilly, Cute, Outrageous costumes. And the make-up, accessories and hairstyles are almost always just as amazing. Its a lot of fun.

    Clubs: My school does not prohibit an anime club strictly on the fact that my school district board thinks that all anime is "Violent" and contains a lot of graphic nudity. This makes the community have a terrible outlook on it, which pretty much blocks anime out. I do however, think that joining a club would be fun. I do enjoy talking to people who are interested in the same things as I. I do like Visual Kei bands [Such as [Old] X-Japan and An Cafe.] And I love most types of anime. Being able to relate to people with the same tastes is terrific.

    General: I buy anime shirts, keychains, magazines, and other things. Japanese candy is great. Conventions are better then most concerts, and the culture behind Japanese animation is amazing.
    So all in all, I'd say I'm pretty obsessed. But not as much as I used to be.

    set made by me. im now taking requests, pm me if you'd like a sig.

    I love anime with a passion, but I can't really find anyone cool to enjoy it with. There aren't many anime fans at my school, and the only club in town is overseen by a really creepy librarian. I joined this forum just to have some people to share my experiences with.
    A lot of people think I'm some crazy weeabo cuz I talk about Japanese stuff nonstop, but that doesn't stem from anime or manga, I had many books of Japanese legends as a child and one of my best friends was a transfer student from Japan who always talked about how beautiful it was and told me I should think about moving down once I finish school.
    So really, I'm an epic otaku, but everything Japanese makes me happy, so I don't know what's wrong with that.
    I'm on a quest to find my soulmate! I'll throw away everything I am today to become what I'll be tomorrow!

    Cosplay - Never done it once.

    Clubs - Ive never been in one, my school doesnt have one either. Close enough I get to clubs is forums. If that counts.

    General - Well I usually read manga, I go about every type there is from Shoujo to Action and so on. Hmm Im not a big fan of watching anime though. Ive only seen a few of them. Id rather just read the manga.

    I used to be very heavy into anime as a watcher, almost to hikkikomori status, lol. Now I simply don't have the time, but whenever I do find an hour to myself to watch an episode or two, the stories still enthrall me and entertain me deeply.

    I have never been involved in cosplay or an anime club though. Wouldn't even know where to find one...

    Jr. High, I loved anime and how I was the only person who did. :P
    Someone would open my binder and be all, "ONG! D: Did you draw this??!"
    And then, I'd be all, "Yes. Yes, I did. :D *Basks in glory*" and feel all special for like a second. .__.
    But now, there are loads of people around who are also into it, so it's pretty meh. :/

    I only watch anime and read manga of what I'm interested in, so if someone walks up to me and says something like, "Hey, you should read Bubblygum Tootifruity Magical But Still Pretty Hardcore Girl Flower Heartbreak School!!!" I'll reply with a NTY.
    But I will go on a raid for money if I decide I want a boxset of some sort. .__.

    I learned how to sew just for the sake of Cosplaying. :D
    I'm nowhere near even a mile of what some other people can do, but it's not like I'm hot-gluing fabrics together. ;U

    And merchandise. :D *Loves her Kuroshitsuji pocket watch*
    If I didn't worry about damaging it, I'd take it everywhere. ;-;
    Figurines are lovely, but since I've run out of places to put them- and I wouldn't DARE putting the poor things in storage >:U- I've stopped collecting, unless they're from an anime/manga I love.
    As for plushies, gotta' love them, but I don't buy them anymore, either.
    I make my own. :D +10 for sewing machine, yus. ;D I swear, they're not crappy. .__.;

    Clubs, there was an anime club last year, but I didn't join for the long-run, for personal reasons. The people there simply bothered me. .__.
     

    It's odd, but I don't enjoy people who strive to make their lives... like an anime. .__. And honestly, you'll see that over at my school.
    Life is not an anime. I know that those people do not go home, ask their mothers what's for dinner, point a finger one inch away from her nose with one hand, a clenched fist pulled up to the chest for the other, and scream, "We had that YESTERDAY!" with their mouths opened wide at each syllable, and at the end of the sentence, have their teeth completely bared in a frown for some reason.
    If I did that, it'd be strange and disrespectful. And I don't enjoy having people's fingers in my face. I don't know where they've been. :l
    But, I am (hopefully) rejoining this year.
