People, often adults in their 20s and 30s (age-wise, their biology still often resembles that of a prepubescent 12 year-old), who are overly obsessed with Anime.

Out of all nerds, they are by far the most annoying. They always talk about how Japan is the best culture and country in the world (how I wished they all moved there), and often speak in Japanese as though it makes them sound cool and superior.

They have an EXTREME form of tolerance for cutesyness that would otherwise make the average intelligent adult either vomit or want to kill someone.

They often gather at conventions with other fellow VFL to act out their wildest fantasies via Cosplay.

All of their money is spent on anime related products and spend their entire lives on either watching, playing, talking about, or acting out anime. They even sleeptalk anime phrases (Pikachu, no!). They literally spend $30 dollars on a 'cute' Pikachu plushie that probably costs 10 cents to make.

They often claim themselves to be the 'smart' nerds because they are able to follow a nonsensical Pokemon plot which is normally outgrown by the average 11 year-old.

Their lives are so uninteresting that they like to give names to every single inanimate object they own. They give their car a name, as well as a toy they own. They also like to give alternate names to towns and areas and use code words to speak amongst themselves. They like to stand in awkward positions (by crossing their feet inwards) as if it's something special, and also like to appear as antisocial as possible to later complain about society not accepting them. They grow their hair and nails to a ridiculous length, while at the same time never bothering to shave or maintain good hygiene.

They often rely on their moms to help sew their costumes for cosplay to later claim they made it themselves. They also rely on their mom for a ride to their conventions as well as for...well, just about everything.

They tend to get sick often due to their poor nutrition: nothing but a shitload of candy and soda.

They have a TERRIBLE taste in music and listen to bands like Dragonforce, as well as J-pop and J-rock bands.

They like to go by an anime alias, even at irrelevant or inappropriate times, and often use it as their real name when they meet someone new.

They LOVE to play DDR and love to show off their moves even more at conventions. If it wasn't for DDR, though, they would never engage in any other activity that remotely resembles exercise...well, other than beating off to anime.

They play videogames and practice for days until they can beat the casual gamer. Otherwise, they feel shameful.

They take their Nintendo DS everywhere to play Pokemon.

Everything scares them and they rarely leave their homes as a result.

They are, for the most part, nice, harmless people. Annoying as hell, but nice overall.

Normal adult (to Anime Nerd friend): Want to go to a rock show this weekend?

Anime Nerd friend: will pikachu be there?

usually influenced at a young age by older anime such as pokemon, sailor moon, card captor sakura, and yugioh. (your average popular high school student probably watched two or three of these as a child. they grew up to become obsessed with society's opinions.) an anime nerd is simply someone who doesn't give a shit what other people think and has not lost sight of their inner child. their appearance can range from ugly to the most beautiful girl/guy you have ever seen. they have respect for the art form that is anime. once or twice a year they may spend their time at an anime convention making money or having fun (meeting new people, hanging out with friends, etc.). an anime nerd knows how to enjoy life (unlike some people). an anime nerd could be the person living next door. they could be the bag boy/girl at your grocery store. they could be your high school english teacher. they could be the man/woman you married twenty years ago.

remember, nerds are people too. and the majority of them have lives others are too stupid to accept. haven't you ever heard "don't judge a book by its cover"?

random guy #2: ...

random guy #1: what? she's hot!!

(n.) A person who enjoys watching anime and/or reading manga. This can be anyone you know and intelligence can be at any range. They don't really care what people think about them which leads them to live a happier and better life. Though they tend to be more outgoing because of the way the accept themselves some also may be very shy. To them, anime offers a break from reality, like reading an amazing book but with images instead of words. Things in anime seem much more plausible than in real life. They can enjoy going to anime conventions and cosplaying (for the more extreme). The worst thing anime nerds suffer from is the sterotypes people give them, anyone at all could be an anime nerd. A synonym would be anime freak.
Person 1: Look at all those people taking Japanese!!! I bet they're all anime nerds.

Pretty Girl: I like anime, jerk.

A person who likes anime, manga, or any of the Japanese related animations to a greater or lesser degree.

Anime tends to mainly attract a certain personality, and those personalities can be considered childish and/or obsessed by outsiders. However, personalities of these fans can be anything from the stereotypical cosplayer who sneaks random Japanese phrases into everyday speech with the Inuyasha tattoo, to the straight laced professor who you took for Econ 1 in college.
Guy 1: Check out the anime nerds!

Guy 2: I'm an anime nerd.

Guy 1: Seriously? You don't look it.

Guy 2: Doesn't mean I don't like it.

Well, a lot of people like to classify anime nerds.
The truth is, anime nerds don't need to be classified.
Your average nerd likes to read manga, watch anime (Japanese cartoons), and converse about it.
There's also a possibility he/she likes to cosplay, which isn't shameful in the slightest. Those who criticize extensively should probably be studying.
Do anime nerds care about your opinion? Probably not.

-You have your pervs too, but they're not worth mentioning.
Popular Guy- Hey, look at those anime nerds, they're so stupid.
Friend- Dude, you got a D on your last test. You're not going to make it into college if you don't study.

Anime nerds come in all different types. There isn't just one way you can group them.
I am an anime nerd, yes. But that doesn't mean that I insert random Japanese words into my sentences, pretend to be Japanese, and I certainly am able to talk about something BESIDES anime.

You see, there are sensible anime fans out there. You just have to look. Sometimes, you won't even know somebody likes it because they never talk about it. We're not all obnoxious and we don't throw a tantrum when people say they don't like anime.

Please don't group us all into the stereotype being that we're all creepy and stupid. Try to get to know us a little before you decide one anime fan is just like another.
Yeah, I'm an anime nerd. Am I going to talk to you constantly about anime, pretend to be Japanese, and be ignorant about the culture? No.

A person who spends a nice amount of their time reading/drawing manga and watching anime or similar Japaneese cartoons. They can sometimes be fun in small doses, but after a while it can be hard to tollerate constant Japaneese references that you don't get... at all. They usually hang around other anime nerds, goths, or anyone who can be labled "different". They often have a small sense of reality, and pretend to not care about other people's opinions about them. They also seems to always be happy, but mosty because ignorence is bliss. Get to know an anime nerd, and they won't stop complaining.
I know from experience, because I dated an anime nerd for 5 months. They are nearly IMPOSSIBLE to date, unless you yourself are one. They tag you in hundreds of manga pictures on Facebook, and make everything far more dramatic than it actually is in order to make reality like anime, which doesn't work. They can also be very immature.
Guy: "Hey you wanna go out?"
Girl: "Sure! ^^"
Guy: "Cool, I think you're really pretty."
Girl: "Awwww, thats soo kawaiiiiii!!"
Guy: "Oh... shit."

An example of finding out that girl is an Anime Nerd.

a person that is obsessed with anime and japanese culture. they are pretty annoying and are always reading a manga book and get pissed if you interupt them. the worst part is that most anime fans aren't even japanese or asian. they have a social life but only with people like them.
Joe the anime nerd called me racist when I told him that i prefered to watch 1960-70's american cartoons instead of anime
