You know you're becoming an otaku when.....

  1. You start saying "hai, hai (yes, yes)" after every request that someone demands of you.
  2. Instead of beckoning people to come over with your palm up, you start beckoning them with your palm down, which typically means go away in American culture.
  3. Instead of saying "ummmm...." you say "edo....."
  4. Anime becomes the first thing you talk about to a friend.
  5. You start wishing you had a balcony so that something might visit and you can be off with either a romance or an adventure.
  6. You start making flamboyant gestures when talking.
  7. You start laughing at friends when they are attracted to other people because you keep on imagining nosebleeds.
  8. You're getting caught reading manga in class (gasp!).
  9. You spend an average of eleven hours a week reading manga or watching anime.
  10. You start saying how you think a relationship will work out because "that's how it works in anime."
  11. You start saying how people you know resemble characters in anime.
  12. You go on forums and argue passionately with people who just don't understand the beauty and intricate plot of the anime you love.
  13. You try drawing anime people, even though you know you will totally suck at it.
  14. You say how good something in real life would be look like in an anime.
  15. You say, "That's so much like this anime I've been reading! It's about a guy and a girl see, and..."
  16. You say, "That would be such a good plot for an anime!"
  17. You frequently wish your life was an anime.

If you have actually spent your time reading this and most of the things on this list are what you do, you're in danger of becoming an otaku. If you've done basically all of the stuff on this list, you ARE an otaku!
