My assignment for Anthropology is to list and define words used by a certain group of people (subculture, if you will) to understand how language affects... stuff.

I was thinking of doing the Anime subculture (Otaku? kawaii~ desu ne?! haaaaaaaaaai ^________________^). If you have other ideas that I could finish by Friday, please be my guest. Really.

First, does anybody know a bunch of words commonly used by "otaku"-people? I don't need the definitions unless I really, really don't know what these words mean. I'm thinking stuff like "fansub", "otakucon" or whatever they call it, "^.^;;", "bento box", and stuff like that.

Second, if you're lazy, do you at least know a good forum where I can see them using anime-language firsthand? I mean a big, popular forum.

...Actually, I'm looking at anime-forums.com and it seem to be getting the job done.

Thanksu~~~~~! ^.^;;;

The term "otaku" refers to anyone with an obsession. Not just anime fans. [Razz]

I already have shounen/shoujou(-ai) and some others mentioned, but I'll add "glomp" and "gomen"; how could I have forgotten?

Thanks
