What An Otaku

| VA, USA | Learning | April 2, 2014

(Every couple of weeks in my Japanese class, we learn a new set of kanji. In this class, we’re learning the kanji for ‘woman’ and my professor is showing us a way to remember it better.)

Sensei: “So, does anyone know the word for a female ninja?”

(The class is mostly silent, but then I speak up.)

Me: “It’s a kunoichi.”

Sensei: *staring, surprised* “How did you know that?”

Me: “… Naruto.”

(She blinks and stares. Then she just rolls her eyes, mumbles ‘neeeerrrrrrd,’ and turns back to the board amongst the laughter of my classmates.)
