I think the really anime fan is anyone who's enjoy anime and manga with this conditions:
* Buy all the items in authorized stores. Or use the web and buy the items directly from Japan. And all the items are authentic too!
* Enjoy, watch and make a true constructive critic. The "otakus" only see the most popular and are really annoying when talk about theirs favorites without reason or nonsense talks.
* Have a REAL LIFE. A lot of people live alones or isolated. Have the feeling "nobody understand me". Almost an EMO but not a really EMO. Hope you understand this point.
Jejeje, i'm agree with all of you. Len have a new title of fan. And what about him? Don't say anything here. Hope i read the post of the real anime fan.
