Top definition
(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.

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

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"?

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.

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.

A person that loves anime and spends all his time watching anime to escape the cruel thing called the reality. These people are usually very quiet, shy and unsocial, avoiding people as much as possible and most likely have great personality and intelligence on the inside. Also they don't care what people say or think. So if you know some like this, Accept them as who they are and because they are usually good people.

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..
