I got interested in this topic. It's a story of a girl who fell inlove with a guy and have a happy relationship but was ruined because she found out her boyfriend is an otaku. Well, you know.. Equivalent to nerd when it comes to animes and games... Describing herself as an extremely shy type person and about 30y/o, relates that she recently began dating a man for the first time. Her post is translated below;
“He’s 4 years younger than me, he’s boy-faced and really cute, takes care of his hair and clothes – he’s stylish.
He would talk about music, movies, the latest trends, and knew all about them; he was captivating so it was a natural choice to date him. With a younger boyfriend who’s really cute, every day was full of happiness for me.
After 3 months, his true self emerged. He’s an otaku.
Like the sort you’d see at Akihabara. He doesn’t look it, but he’s into anime and cosplay. I think he even goes to their events.
A never ending battle between girls and games.. When did this battle started? Who knows.. Whoever they are of course boys are the prime suspect.

Ever experienced someone finding out your a gamer or an anime fanatic they just stares you like you have a desease or a dirt on your face? You may want to ask why but you can see clearly on their expressions the reason and that is "Your not a kid anymore.. Duh??!"
Society, majority of people is that hobbies such as toys, animes and games are just for kids. When you reach 18 and still fond with it its either you're stuck at your parent's house without a job, your friends starts avoiding you or they will all look at you like you're a total weird. It hurts even more when most of these lines was said to you;
"Anime? You're joking right??"
"That's only for kids you know?.."
"Get a life!! A real one!!!"
What's worse is when the majority has one common idea about being a gamer/anime fanatic "Leads you nowhere and it won't help you in real life at all." Well, wait no more as I now have some facts that being a gamer/anime
