    How to spot a otaku in the real world

    A strange survey thing I found while lookin round at for random loltat

    http://whatjapanthinks.com/2008/01/1...d-an-otakette/
    Over the 21st and 22nd of November 2007 1,101 members of the goo Research monitor panel completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 50.7% of the sample was female, 6.2% in their teens, 15.4% in their twenties, 30.2% in their thirties, 27.1% in their forties, 11.0% in their fifties, and 10.3% aged sixty or older. Note that the score reported is the relative number of votes each choice got, not the percentage of the sample that chose each option.
    Particularly for the male answers, otaku has strong connotations of being an anime or manga freak, rather than the slightly more generic use of someone who’s heavily into any hobby, judging by the answers below!
    Q1: What characteristic in males makes you feel he looks like an otaku? (Sample size=1,101)

    I have the sleeveless t-shirts and the unnecessarily long hair, although I'm not an otaku. Some of those can be for nerds in general though.



    I never add friend codes.

    Of corse the best way to see the "otaku" breade in the wild is to go to a anime convention and look some body dressed as some body not out of bleach, Naruto, Dragonball or any massively succsessfull anime but dressed as a lesser charicter
