Nerds!

Postby pacotacoshell » Tue May 07, 2013 10:52 am

Looking for characters that fit any or all of these traits, and they have to be nerdy in a sense:
1) NEETs
2) Hikikomoris
3) Otakus
4) Gamers
5) Bookworms
6) People in glasses or other stereotypical items of clothing that nerds identify with (headbands, cosplay, etc)
7) Two nerdy people falling in love (eg. Ano Natsu de Matteru)

Also looking for other anime that have:
8) Anime conventions or events that fit any of the traits above (ex. the video game presentation in Sakurasou)
9) Electronics that can talk and that can be lip synced with. The voice I'm lip syncing to is monotone, so I'm trying to avoid using a sprite or avatar like the pink blob-y thing in Psycho-Pass. A perfect example would be the talking cell phone in Bakemonogatari.

Well, first there's Sasami from Sasamisan@Ganbaranai. She's often shown on her computer and she's a neet. There's also... well, everyone in Welcome to the NHK, who are all Hikkikomoris. There's also Seven/Nana in Loveless and Izumi Takanashi from WORKING!!. There are plenty of anime conventions in OreImo and Lucky Star and you could probably find a lot of otaku girls in there :3

The MC from BTOOOMMM!!! (spelling may be off a little XD) is a NEET and a gamer. Elena Peoples in Eureka Seven Ao is an otaku (at one point shes wearing a Miku cosplay). That's all I can think off for now tho. XD

I just remembered there's a scene of Moemoura at a computer during episode 10 of Puella Magi Madoka Magica that might be usable.

I don't know if the older series count or not:
Sailor Moon:
1) Darian was a GWBasic Programmer learning Qbasic
2) Ami was on of the first Tablet programmers. ( this was un-heard-of back then!
3) Sailor V was using her Compact as a Compac Computer back then .. even before she joined the Sailor Scouts and long before the series Sailor Moon was on the Manga. !!! ( I believe that She qualifies if only for THAT reason ^__^
Vandread: The commander with a whip & the Engineer plus the Doctor all seem to fit that bill ... even though, today, Data Entry is not considered to be Nerdy.

. Perhaps you are referring to an all-out Total nerd-type!???
