真・Top Ten Ways to tell you are living inside an anime.

Same idea as usual, but to make it more interesting try to tie it back to the Japanese language in some way.

I'll start.

真・The top ten ways to tell you are living inside an anime.

10. People around you actually _say_ 'gitaigo'.
For example a girl might say しくしく (shikushiku) instead of actually crying.
When starting guiltily somebody might actually say ぎく instead of just flinching.

Oh, I think I can do this. Only I bet we get a lot more than ten answers!

9. As we watch, we see someone fall three stories onto his head. Blood splatters everywhere. His three buddies (each with more ridiculous hair than the previous) run up breathlessly, asking Daijoubu? or Daijoubu ka? as they see fit.

And the first guy gets up of course. It will never happen, but I would love it if he then said something like the following:

Of course I'm all right, you fools. I'm the title character, I can't be killed so easily! Besides, it's a good thing I landed on my head. This way nothing important got injured.

:D

8. Whenever someone thinks they've gotten in trouble, a great big 汗の滴 (sweatdrop) appears over their head.

6. When you beat someone and they run away they shout 覚えとくぞ! (oboetoku zo!) as they leave. This practice is known as 捨てセリフ (suteserifu).

An English example of a 捨てセリフ would be "I'll be back".

4. When your mouth and head grow 5 times their normal size when you get angry. And your eyes take up most of your face.
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

2. When you wear glasses (and are generally considered a "geek") and you get an insanely cute girlfriend....God I envy guys in animes :'( :'(

0. When you call out your special moves before using them.

-1. When you find yourself living in a dorm or inn with six or seven well-endowed college/high school girls, and you are the only male (and happen to have glasses).
