Awakening the OTAKU in me

What Mr. Google says about the word otaku is:

otaku plural of o·ta·ku

(in Japan) Young people who are highly skilled in or obsessed with computer technology to the detriment of their social skills.
But nowadays, the word has been associated with anime fans and I understand it as the latter.
When Clarence and I parted ways during the first three years of college, my love for anime seem to have disappeared also for I was surrounded by different people who have different likes and dislikes. It’s just now, when we became classmates again that I started to watch animes again.
And I remember how an anime lover I have been from the start. How I cried during fifth grade when I wasn’t able to watch Cardcaptor Sakura because of brownout, how I collected pictures of my favorite characters and how I memorized Shaman King’s theme songs. I love everything about it.
At this moment I am just working on Kimi Ni Todoke’s second season and even though I want to know the rest of the story, the thought of nearing its end hurts my heart. I am so in love with the characters and the story.
I am happy that I am into anime again.
