When...you got your high school english teacher to a greet you with, "Got it Memorized?" in the hallway

and play with an Axel action figure during class...


When...that same Axel figure interrupted your friends driver's ed class because it was doing inappropriate gestures in the door's window...

There's really isn't anything I can think to add, but this thread just made me sooooo happy.

When you see a pair of circular glasses and think of anime characters (Shino, Vash, etc.) and not John Lennon.

I do most of the things in this thread and that just makes me smile :heart:

When you randomly spaz out, over the fact that a anime convention is so close, and people give you a weird look for it. =D

-~- Human Death Knight Tier 10 ( World of Warcraft ) / 95% complete -~-
-~- Arthas lies supine, the shattered remnants of Frostmourne beside him. He starts as the ghost of Terenas Menethil materializes over him, and the characteristic blue glow dissipates from his eyes. As Terenas kneels next to him, Arthas places a hand on his father's chest.
Arthas Menethil: Father! Is it... over?
Terenas lays a comforting hand on Arthas' gauntlet.
Terenas Menethil II: At long last. No king rules forever, my son.
Arthas Menethil: I see... only darkness... before... me...
Arthas' eyes roll back into his head and he dies, his hand falling to the ground. Terenas closes his son's eyes and gently lays him on the ground as Tirion walks in.
Terenas Menethil II: Without its master's command, the restless Scourge will become an even greater threat to this world.
Terenas stands, facing Tirion.
Terenas Menethil II: Control must be maintained. There must always be a Lich King. -~-

You know you're an otaku when you stay up late before a convention to make double sure you've got everything for your cosplay.

...You spend time looking for obscure items and/or imports. (I've looked for the inexplicably rare DS game Cheer We Go, and I've browsed Canadian bookstores for volumes of 3x3 Eyes and Ramen Fighter Miki. And as for imports, the UK version of Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland is probably the most mainstream thing I've imported.)

...You buy things in languages you don't understand. Especially if you like them for more than pretty pictures, sexy voices, etc.

...You listen to podcasts / watch vidcasts about your favorite series and genres. (I have!)

...You understand the in-jokes/obscure references from the following series:

- Abenobashi
- Hayate the Combat Butler
- Lucky Star
- Nadesico
- Captain Tylor
- Project A-ko
- Prefectural Earth Defense Force
- Genshiken
- Comic Party
- Otaku no Video
- Doujin Work

...You not only recognize the names of those series, but you're thinking about which one has the most obscure in-jokes and references.

...You ask yourself questions such as "I wonder how this would work as an anime TV series / comic / game."

...And then you search the web to find out if one exists. (Unfortunately, it will often be untranslated, or poorly written...)

When you find an old series in a store that you know you can't afford to buy but buy it anyways.

When you work out bills and rent around your Anime budget.

when you have a room full of plushies and wall scrolls of characters all looking at the center of the room where you sleep and find it adorable.

When you WILL drop that $60 on that one item...

When you feel that all the best series aren't being brought over to America.

when you're year begins and ends with the convention you go to (or the largest one, if you go to more than one) each year, instead of New Year's.

when, while watching an anime, you start thinking about how you might go about making the cosplay.

when you hear a song and instantly start planning out AMVs in your head.

when your ringtone is either an anime theme, or a song by a band that you discovered because they did an anime theme that you liked and you decided to check out the rest of their music

when at least half the music on our iPod is in Japanese.

when you grow so comfortable with talking with otaku and gamers online and hanging out with them irl that you experience culture shock when you have to interact with "normal" people.

when you refuse to buy more than one poster/ wall scroll per anime because otherwise you'd just have way too much, and then justify having 2 GITS:SAC wall scrolls by pointing out that one of them is 2nd GIG.

when anything involving a glowing hand causes you to recite "this hand of mine glows with an awesome power..."

when you can have a conversation full of references with a friend and never once say an actual series' name.

when you find away of tying anime into your non-anime interests.

when you know more about Japanese history from watching/ reading Rurouni Kenshin than you do from your World History class in high school

when at one point in your early life you took Japanese lessons, and yet you know more from watching anime subtitled.

when you know someone with the last name "Armstrong" and it results in jokes about things having been in the Armstrong family for generations!

when getting on a train with someone named Claire makes you nervous/ crack jokes about being scared, even if she is a pacifist.

edited because I had more.
