I've seen true otaku as well. I saw a girl in high school carry around all her anime plushies to class. She had like five of them, and just carried em' around like if they were her baby or something. She was even playing with them with some other otaku friend. I'm like "okay I own plushies, but I don't bring them TO SCHOOL and play with them!!" I actually QUIT the anime club because they were WAY TOO obsessed. They truly creeped me out because of the way they acted. There was a girl and a guy who said "nyah" after every sentence, and it really annoyed me. And then they accused me of not "being into anime enough." XD Yeah, okay.
Granted, I love anime, cosplay, manga, drawing manga, heck, I even have a huge Motoko Kusanagi wall scroll in my room because she's my favorite character. BUT I don't go putting all of it in my daily life. I think it's just silly if you over indulge into it, because then what fun is it anime just becomes a "routine?" I mean at first Iwas so obsessed with anime on the verge of otaku, and my parents put a stop to it and only let me watch anime on the weekends. At the moment, I cried and I cried and screamed "NOOOO!!!!!" but as I grew older and matured, the whole rule made me enjoy it way more than I did back then.

And for anime, this rings true.
