Eroica Yori Ai wo Komette is one of the few mangas that can be classified as both shounenai & BL because of how long it's been in publication. Starting in 1978 & still being written to this day.
When writer Aoike Yasuko took a long break in the 90s doing gawd knows what, she picked the story up again with a different art style. She actually managed to convert her art from retro to modern (sadly), & the fans still wait to see if Dorian will ever get Klaus, hoping to heck it doesn't end abruptly like her amazingly funny series; Ibu no Musukotachi.
If you're a BL/shounenai/retro manga fan, you've GOT to add her stuff to your collection!
Short for Tenheishi. Japanese angels. Deffinition; Sky Soldier. They have 2 sets of wings & throw spears at people. Common tenshs of today usually have only 1 set of wings or 2, bt one set of wings are actually feathery wing shapped ears.
Japanese history texts & countless anime/manga/CG sites.
The Anime Eletists or Anime Leet. People with years of "expirience" in anime-watching. To be an otaku, you must have at least 5 years of watching, 300 series & OAVs watched, more than half of them have to be subtitled or raw, you have to own at least 1 fansub, 1 ufo catcher doll, 1 doujinshi, 1 untranslated manga, 1 shitajiki, been to at least 1 con in full cosplay, one anime ost, knowledge of Japanese popular subcultures, a fleet of Japanese slang words, plus the ability to read katakana, hiragana, & instantly reccognize a few kanjis.
Someone who only watches dubbed anime on TV or borrows dubbs from their friends will never become Otaku.
Otakus have little to no tollerance for noobs, but will take one under their wing & teach them how to properly enjoy all Japan has to offer.
An anime fan is just a n00b, but an otaku is l33t. (noob/newbie) (leet/elite).
A less retarded sounding slang word for Macdonnald's as apposed to Micky D's.
Coined in Japan.
Concidered a blasphemy against anime by otaku, amerime & it's french-canadian counterpart kanadime incorprate a highly unskilled attempt to resemble anime.
Kappa Mikey & Avatar the Last Air Bender are perfect ecamples of amerime. Teen Titans is marginally disqualified for actually being made in asia.
Slang for Burger King, like Staba is slang for Starbucks.
Well pick up some food at Barkin & swing by Staba for a drink.
