a category of nerds who are highly interested in anime and often anything related to japan. They usually have average or below average intelligence (although often like to think of themselves as being smarter than the average person) . They normally wear large, ill-fitted, and either baggy or too-tight clothes. They will often have unkempt and messy appearances, with alot of acne blemishes and scraggly hair and will often wear their japanese/anime themed t-shirts far too often from a hygienic perespective . Many of them are overweight or have bad posture. They often use/butcher japanese words like "kawai!!". They like to draw pictures of their anime heroes in grubby little sketch pads.Their pathetic lives scarcely resemble the heroic and inspirational existence of the anime heroes that they so devotedly worship.
dude look at those anime nerds playing yu-gi-oh in the corner of building 13..

My ex boyfriend was an anime nerd. I fucking hate these people! They are obsessed with anime, and all they talk about is anime. They remind you of 12 year olds and if you date them you feel like a pedophile! Their IQ's are often average or below average, but they have this idea that they are superior to everyone else in every way, but they are completely pathetic! They usually have messy hair, try to look cool by wearing punk style hoodies, or they will listen to angry music if they don't listen to techno to try to be cool. A lot of times they will have terrible achne! For all those who enjoy The Simpsons anime nerds are a mix between Professor Frink and Comic Book Guy!
Tom Cruise: So are you excited to go to the Korn Concert? I'm suprised! It doesn't seem like your style!
Anime Nerd: Oh yeah! It's like when Pikachu...(blah blah blah blah blah).
Tom Cruise: (Sigh) Oh boy!

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?

The nerd] of the 00's. First we had A/V nerds, then computer nerds, Dungeons and Dragons nerds, sci-fi nerds and now anime nerds. I've have had the misfortune of knowing some people with these characteristics.

These nerds are obsessed with Japanese animation (anime), and by extension, everything Japanese. They spend all their time drawing anime characters, watching anime, collecting manga and anime paraphernalia, listening to Japanese pop music, and inserting random Japanese phrases and words inappropriately into every day conversations whenever the chance arises.

They will sometimes argue that Japanese culture and society is superior to Western culture and all other cultures in every single manner.

Its alright for everyone to have one or two geeky hobbies, so long as you aren't obsessed and spend all your time and energy thinking and talking about it. If anime is your only interest, then you are an anime nerd, and you need to get out more and develop your personality.
Anime Nerd: "Hey, what did you do over the weekend?"

Average Joe: "Nothing spectacular. I went to a party Friday night, saw my girl on Saturday and just chilled downtown on Sunday."

Anime Nerd: "Thats sounds so boring! BAKA! I played DDR and watched the Fucky-Fucky Toe Parade Season 2 DVD that I just got in the mail, TWICE! =^.^=" "

Average Joe: "... The hell??"

Liking anime isn't so bad, but it is if all you ever do is talk about anime, read manga, and act like you're a 6-year-old in need of a baby-sitter. These people generally hang out in groups at lunch and discuss anime and manga while talking in childish made-up voices. Some of them try to stand out by wearing clothes from Hot Topic so they can be neo-nerds. They also usually take web design/graphic design classes and become teacher's pets to the teachers who are into technology. It's a sad concept indeed.
Joe: "That girl with the acne and trench coat asked me out. She looks kind of cute when she wears eyeliner. What should I say?"

Responsible Friend: "Dude, Joe, don't do it. That chick's an anime nerd. She's a VFL."

Joe: "Oh, ew! Shit! Thanks for telling me, Responsible Friend!"

Responsible Friend: "Anytime."
