I Want to Meet More Otaku People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 195 People

    Back To My Roots!

     I want to get back into Anime but it's kind of hard to find a good new anime that will keep my interest. The only people I have to ask around here are a few fan girls who only watch the cutesie stuff like Fruits Basket.

    It's really hard to find more otakus.

    At my school, I really can't find anybody that likes anime and manga. I just want some friends where I can relate anime and manga with. :3 Maybe even some videogames too.

    Most Friends Hate Anime

    It's hard to find people who are the same gender and same age that like what you like. I actually don't have a single friend who likes anime, which really sucks , im also 13 so people think it's weird when im already reading lemons and watching anime. T.T

    I am a proud otaku, anime is the thing I

    retreat to when I feel down. I could watch hours and hours of animes. The stories in animes and manga are just incredible they have so much depth better than all the stupid reality tv shows that are completely dumb.
