Female Otaku?
« on: June 24, 2007, 10:58:07 AM »
Okay, seriously, are we really that rare?!  Well, I only know two other girls who could be considered otaku, and I'm still trying to gain rank, but I was on a board this morning, where I mentioned I had a Genshiken Saki figure, and that I loved it, and the guys all went "WTFBBQ?!" and didn't believe me...  TT__TT

Is it my addiction to anime full of fanservice?

I know quite a few female "otaku", but it could just be where I hang out on IRC.

I know a bunch from real life...

Oh, yeah, I'm definitely one of those.

Ask the channel bot!

[22:23] <!ToujouAya> yaoi: manga that focuses on a homosexual relationship between two male characters, especially two bishounen (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yaoi)

Of course, I idle in Nakama's channel, so I don't have much to say.

There's so many female otakus around my town. I used to frequent an anime club that took place here that had plenty of em. Thought the small group of us male otakus here were gonna get jumped after the meeting each month  ::)

Temp sig set from a long time ago, only until I get around to making a new one. Been ages.

Oh, I hate yaoi.

I find it extremely stupid myself.  And I know only one other girl who doesn't like yaoi:  waffo.
