The 2 Types of Anime Otaku

From website 2ch, the good souls there have divided the anime otaku into 2.

Type 1:.
A person who simply enjoys "anime".

Is proud of Japan’s anime.

Evaluates anime based on direction, voice acting, art, etc.

Hates shallow anime with no real content.

Story emphasis >>>>> Moe anime.

A recent example would Higashi no Eden. Fans of anime like Lain or
Ghost in the Shell would probably be this kind.

Type 2:.
A person who simply enjoys "characters".

Will watch an anime if it includes cute or beautiful characters.

Doesn’t care if story is awful, as long as the characters are of interest.

Evaluates anime based on which seiyuu are in it and what the characters
look like.

Loves moe elements. Doesn’t like complex anime.

The otaku the media picks up on are usually this kind.

Doesn’t know that much about anime and so is often criticised as by Type A otaku.

However, they make much better customers than the more discerning Type A otaku.

Recently there has been a huge increase in anime targeted at Type B otaku.

People who like K-ON!, Queen’s Blade, Strike Witches and so on would be in this class.

"I" the writer would probably be in category 1 & a bit of 2, "I" love a good storyline,
voice-acting & the style/stoke the Anime is presented in. Well, "I" do occasionally
watch some Anime with cute girls in it, who doesn't love an Anime with a bit of cute
"busty" school girl once in a while right? Its like an eye teaser!

PLUS! Smallville: Absolute Justice Promo
Catch the latest season of Smallville this Saturday at a torrent site near you!

Darth Raven?? Say what!?

How "I" wish that Popsicle was apart of me...

Is it just me or did Superman's head shrink over the years...

Pull a head of a "Tree Friend"

quote of the day!
It's the wanting that keeps us alive.

People who are type 2 creeps me out and their quite sad lor. I know some people who get turned on watching anime girls. And they are like.. anime girls are more beautiful than real life girls so I don't bother going out. Sad life don't you think?

"I" the writer said...

Damn! Well "I" am 40% guilty on that charge dude, "I" know its sad...You have friends like that huh, most of my friends are drinkers & clubbers, so "I" think its a breath of fresh air for me to like an innocent cute Anime girl rather then those LIVE girls who just disappoint you

Nicholas C said...

But their not REAAAALLLLLLL. I'd take real flat boobies than anime big boobies anytime

"I" the writer said...

I know bub', well think of it this way, you see megan fox & know you cant have her right? so its about the same thing with me seeing a anime chick. I am not totally obsess with them. Just that I like seeing them, plus! "I" do like small cute boobs ;)
