Anime Freak is both:
-a fan of anime.
a lot of people say that fans of anime or manga are well....freaks....and yes, some of them are, once i saw this comment on a anime video and it was some really, really, really sad person arguing with someone (getting really aggressive) because someone claimed a character they are "going out with".
its really sad and embaressing for the rest of us who find anime interesting and arent obsessed with japan or manga(which i never read because i hate reading that sort of thing) and because of that crazy obessed stalker, everyone else is labelled.
a lot of my friends who do watch anime -including myself- only watch it because they remember it from their childhood (e.g. naruto which was played on cartoon network)
not all fans of anime are obsessive freaks...
NORMAL ANIME FREAKS ~~
