"I would say that they are in their own fantasy world. They are kind of strange."
I always feel like they are really nerdy. They are very much outcasts."
"I feel like they keep to themselves more. They stick together and I haven't really had a conversation with one of them."
"I feel like they don't have many friends and they just stick to themselves"
"They are more shy people and seem to have a hard time in social situations."
Anime Label Expectations:
- Not care about their looks (clothes, hair, makeup, etc.)
- Only care about anime.
- Stay within their anime friend group.
- Have a hard time in social situations because of the cartoons they watch, being in their own fantasy world.
- Play games like their DS and Pokémon during the school day.
This group sticks to themselves and typically does not venture outside of the Anime club. The label does have a negetive connotation to it because other students see them as "losers" or "strange" because they don't follow the social norm (clothes, makeup, hair, etc.). Students may see them as being stuck in the past, elementary school was when Pokémon and DS was still cool. Because these kids stay in their social circles they have a hard time making new friends or talking to new people at all, this will show when speaking in class or to other people. This group is considered lower on the social ladder because of the social norms the group doesn't follow.
Although this group does not makes friends outside of their norm, they are okay with being different. If an anime kid actually cared what others thought of them they wouldn't play their DS or Pokémon in the lunch room for everyone to see, this is something admirable about the group. Their seemingly perfect acceptance of themselves, totally okay with who is watching or talking.
Found a great video of anime speed draw!
I play the tenor saxophone and have been doing band since sixth grade. I started out on the French horn and moved to the tenor saxophone (curvy necked one). I have been playing tenor for six years now and have been with Mrs. Witherall at TA for five of those years.
Band geeks are portrayed in movies as the ugly nobody's who can't make friends. Not the case, the expctations for band geeks are real however.
