2ch wrote:- A person who simply enjoys “anime.”
- Is proud of Japan’s anime.
- Evaluates anime based on direction, voice acting, art, etc. (I'm not that strict, or perhaps I don't care about this at all, maybe I should?)
- Hates shallow anime with no real content. (same as the 3rd Point)
- Story emphasis >>>>> Moe anime. (That's me!)
- A recent example would Higashi no Eden (Eden of the East). Fans of anime like Lain or Ghost in the Shell would probably be this kind. (I watched two of the three mentioned here. Going to check Eden of the East out, but I gotta finish Spice & Wolf and Appleseed XIII first whenever I feel like it.)
I fit in under this type of otaku the most, however, according to Artefact of Sankaku Complex, he describes this type as more of a "fan" than an "otaku", which is something I see myself as more correctly, and it's a fair description.
So, any recommendations?
