    ...you go to a convention and stalk all the people dressed as your favorite character(s).

    ...none of your friends study Japanese, but thanks to you, they all have 50-word vocabularies.

    ...you go native, to the point of buying Japanese rice in 20-pound bags and clearing all of the furniture out of your living room so you can sit on the floor.

    ...you have a Ranma outfit...and so does your significant other.

    ...you've contemplated growing your hair long so that you can put it up in dumplings.

    ...you enroll at Tokyo University, and are disappointed that there are no members of the opposite sex in your dorm.

    ...you sue Burger King because they gave you a rocket power toy and not a Hamtaro one.

    ...you make jokes like "How many DBZ characters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?"

    ...you sit for twenty minutes after the last episode recalling major points in the series.

    ...people call Anime a kiddie cartoon and you try to strangle or beat them to death.

    ...the only reason you know how to use a computer is b/c of your persistance in finding anime and installing codecs yourself.

    ...your sleep patterns become computer, tv, computer, tv, manga, computer, manga, tv, DVD, computer, tv, computer, tv, manga...etc.

    ...you stay awake till 3:00 just to watch an episode.

    ...someone annoys you so much that you start writing his name on your "notebook".


    I got this from different sites (also added my own). I know several of you watch too much anime...so share!
