This situation is beginning to become quite an issue in the anime world so I'd like to discuss this topic.
Over Obsession to Anime.
I for one have seen this around where I live and honestly, it's gotten to the point where someone needs to say something.
When I say Obsession I don't mean those who go to conventions, cosplay from time to time, will make an anime reference here or there or give their opinion about a particular anime but I mean those who take it to the extreme.
I'm referring to the people who want to go to and live japan just because of it, people who literally starve themselves because all anime characters have a "FIT" body and they want to be like thier anime "IDOL".
The ones who "mimic" an anime person's personality traits and have thier household looking like the inside of a typical anime living room.
They naturally go to food stores that ave Japanese handwriting and eat japanese food thanks to anime.
And the list goes on
I mean people who take it to those types of extremes. Although I like anime I have friends that like it too much.
I have a friend who happens to like anime too much to the point where she literally got"Ichigo" (from bleach) tattooed on the bottom portion of her neck.
She buys food she can't even pronounce just because it has anime people labeled on the cover, and even has a replica of his sword (I believe its called a zonpackto?) in her closet. She was even arrested for doing something she saw a female anime character do a passer by in an episode she saw. In my opinion it's one thing to like something, and completely different to be obsessed with it. To me she is obsessed with it.
How about you, discuss you experiences (if you have any) with the topic. Have you any experiences with people who are over obsessed. Or what is your definition of being obsessed with anime?
