J's Chimes: Ways To Spot An Otaku

A survey of over 4,000 Japanese reveals just how easy it is thought to be to spot a male otaku from how he dresses…

The ranking:

1. He has an anime T-shirt
2. He has an anime shopping bag

3. He has a waist pouch, fanny pack or bum bag

4. He wears a bandanna (hachimaki)

5. His bag is covered in anime badges

6. His hair is excessively long

7. He wears his rucksack over both shoulders

8. He has big, thick glasses

9. He tucks his shirt/T-shirt into his trousers

10. He wears chemical wash jeans

Lol-ed when I read this from It's kinda accurate alright even in Singapore and especially so in anime conventions or gathering places like China Square Central Singapore. Well... in fact anime lovers don't spend unnecessary things and would rather save them for their hobbies instead.
