>1) Morning anime shows like Slam Dunk, Detective Conan, Hajime No Ippo and One Piece get you late for work.
Pleb. What are torrents? Straming? Hell, I once set our old VCR to record an episode of Ghost Fighter before.
>>2) You know manga releases and schedules by heart.
>You know [..] schedules by heart.
Sheesh, any normal human does this. I mean, my old folks know the releases and schedules of movies in their favorite cable channels.
>3) You secretly practiced/memorized a jutsu hand seal once in your life
Applicable only to fans of Naruto. If it was "special move" from "favorite show", I'll agree. I still do Red Mask's Aura Power stance or practice Masked Rider Black's Rider Change.
>4) Your evening surfing routine includes Facebook, Instagram, and Mangafox.
Too specific. Just generalize and say "surf anime-related sites such as Mangafox, etc".
>>5) Gundams are not robots.
>>There's just no way a robot can be this cool.
>X is not Y
>There's just no way a Y can be this cool
Retard much? At least, the author's not saying "That's a Voltes V ripoff" to Combattler V.
>6) You know a few words/can understand Japanese even if you didn't study Nihongo.
Gray area. This is more about exposure really. I hung out once before in a German site lurking for Initial D stuff and I picked up some German lingo.
>7) Costume parties mean you can finally cosplay without losing your dignity.
Wait, is cosplay really a requirement to be an otaku? I mean, I regularly buy manga but never entertained the thought of cosplaying.
Oh, wait, "Pinoy Otaku". Sorry, my bad. Carry on.
>8) You've bought at least one of these items (or thinking of having one, at least).
Perhaps the same could be said of all fandoms, not just anime.
>9) You tend to become friendly with other people who read manga / watch anime.
Kinda opposite from my experience but it still boils down to social skills. I mean, I saw other people reading manga in the bookstore before but they sound obnoxious (loudly talking, etc) that I don't want to be associated with that. Happens more often now during Book Fairs since there's always a con happening on the same day and on the same place.
>10) You'll choose Alodia over Anne Curtis any given day.
Right, "Pinoy Otaku".
Setting aside that, different strokes for different people.
