View Full Version : Life Guilty Pleasures

June 03, 2007, 03:48 AM
ok ok, we all have them. we all know we have them. we all hid them XD. the idea for making this thread came from my friend who was making a list of hidden, and unhidden trends among otaku (a basic one being collecting action figures), which he is hoping i can flush out on such a big site. so please, post away!

and yes, i have mine, but you dont get to see them yet! later!

I don't understand what this is supposed to be. You mean like things that you like that you are ashamed of liking? But do they have to be otaku related?

June 04, 2007, 10:01 AM
Well, I guess this can be otaku related, or let's make it otaku related? Rabb?

For me, I have a stash of shoujo manga hidden somewhere in my wardrobe from the prying eyes of such underaged kids or nosey adults because the manga are just too smutty stories by Shinjo-sensei. ;)

Actually spending time on DeviantArt looking up every single picture of every single straw hat crew member. It's a bit embarrassing

I enjoy some shinsengumi yaoi smut from time to time.... *hides her doujins*

Vanilla ice cream, procrastination, buying stuff with credit cards

How can vanilla ice cream be a guilty pleasure?

I agree on the procrastination part.. and I love, no, I mean LOVE making food and eating in the middle of the night. Like making dinner at 3am. (not healthy) and I must say that I love watching like Disney Channel and Nickelodeon with my little sister. :D

October 22, 2009, 01:02 PM
That new Michael Buble song, no disrespect to him or his fans I fully acknowledge that he's a talented singer.

October 23, 2009, 02:03 AM
Anime/Manga full stop.
In reality none of my friends know I'm into this sort of stuff, nor would they be overly thrilled by it.
But whatever.

October 25, 2009, 10:19 PM
Manga & Anime.

What all of my ex's were able to achieve with me!!!

October 26, 2009, 07:06 AM
Procrastination.. and I guess.. lying to my parents (I can't help it! D: )

For anything "Otaku" related.. I wouldn't know.. Maybe that I like even the most childish things.. :p .. But that's not really a secret, is it..

October 29, 2009, 07:31 PM
Eating cocoa from the jar. xD My mom forbid me to do that, because I have this habit of eating the whole cocoa in the jar. And then - no cocoa for a month or two. :darn

Disney animation and some other animations. I just LOVE watching animations and cartoons.

Hannah Montana show (no comment xD).

Plushy dolls. I have too many. But I always gotta have more! It's like a disease. xD

Subway, man I kill someone for that sandwich!

December 19, 2009, 02:25 PM
Probably too many to count, so I'll just list a few: cheesy 80's music, reading celebrity gossip (US Weekly, perezhilton.com, and the like), and the occasional reality show competition.

I'm really quite embarrassing. ^^;;;;;;;;;

December 19, 2009, 03:05 PM
cheesy 80's music

Me too! Especially old new wave.

fast food, soda, junk food. Anything bad to eat.

December 20, 2009, 04:17 AM
Time to add to my list...

-DQ Oreo Blizzards (16oz ones :wtf)
-Bacon Cheeseburgers
-Fries (chips if you're European :p)
-80's-90's pop music
-Chips (crisps if you're European :p)
-Fried Chicken
-Cigarettes (This probably falls under addiction and not "guilty pleasure")

December 20, 2009, 01:55 PM
Soda, any kind. They all so good :D
And that song Fireflies.....it just makes me so happy inside :p

December 20, 2009, 02:57 PM

Watching teen soap opera One Tree Hill.

I was honestly just about to write that. Started to watch OTH for fun 2 weeks ago and I've ran through the first 3 seasons now and I love it.

How can vanilla ice cream be a guilty pleasure?
To a health freak like me. Ice Cream is blasphemy for me to eat. But I give in to temptation now and then so I don't have a mental break down.

Here are some new ones for me I noticed I do.
Ripping and burning DVDs from Netfilx.
When using torrent I put the received limit to Unlimited and the send rate to like 1KB/s.

January 09, 2010, 10:29 AM
enjoying some bad mangas and doujinshis (in terms of art, characterisation, plot,etc).

January 12, 2010, 10:20 PM
Eating 5-10 chocolates muffins in one go and complaining about a baad stomachace the next day....

-New K-on opening. Everyone hates it.
-Drawing a certain male character that debuted this season in a lolita maid dress
-Grade A zettai ryouiki on male or female characters
-Pretty legs...boobs are overrated
-Hetalia all the way....
-Code Geass and its train wreck
-Prince of Tennis seiyuu concert...KHR seiyuu concerts...Takahashi Hiroki really loves to provide fanservice doesn't he? Getting held BY his waist by another male seiyuu...holding hands with another male seiyuu...licking a sword...
-True my heart... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9xgCBZRmxc)

I'm thinking of buying the new Pokemon game for DS :p, It's been years since I played it and I've recently started to feel interested again.

April 26, 2010, 06:36 AM
I never feel guilty about my pleasures. that might be why i have so many!!!

April 26, 2010, 02:34 PM
I bought the new pokemon game :sweatdrop

April 27, 2010, 01:58 PM
Oh did you? How is it??

April 27, 2010, 02:30 PM
It's quite nice,especially because of the nostalgia.It looks amazing and has some nice new features,but well,it's still a remake,so it can be boring at some parts,because everyone played gold and silver already.
It's still one of the best games from the series^^

May 03, 2010, 02:37 PM
Guilty pleasures?.... Eating toasts after ten pm. It's not healthy, but it's not like I'm gaining any weight from it, and it's goooooooooooooooooooooooooood :hurr

May 03, 2010, 06:45 PM
My guilty pleasure is watching "America's Next Top Model". (Sometimes I watch the Canadian version too.) I know it's not a path to become a true high couture model, but the photo shoots and the catfights provide for good entertainment. I haven't been keeping up lately though.

May 11, 2010, 11:23 AM
<<< Going to be nit-picky.... it's "Haute Couture" or "High Fashion", but not "High Couture"

As far as guilty pleasures... I have many, but anime/manga related? Hmm... I just spent over $300 dollars on Statues and an original Nausicaa movie poster from Japan. I plan to spend more at the end of the month when I go to A-Kon ^.^.... Hmmmm.... I've got a sizeable hentai collection lol.... I enjoy both Seinen and Shounen manga even though I'm 26 and married.

May 11, 2010, 11:53 AM
One phrase... Midnight snacks. :faint.

It cant be helped, happens all the time.

May 11, 2010, 02:57 PM
Same here... I know that I've got to cut back, but maaaannnn they're tasty!

June 18, 2010, 01:09 AM
I'm a huge fan of soap operas

June 19, 2010, 08:36 PM
I listened to a Justin Bieber song today.

On purpose.

June 21, 2010, 09:34 AM

Another guilty pleasure of mine is that i once enjoyed watching Hanna Montana:oh

June 23, 2010, 07:10 AM
Rewatching anime series seen so far...especially Death Note

June 24, 2010, 04:57 PM
Xena: Warrior Princess.

I say no more.

June 24, 2010, 07:14 PM
Jersey Shore...


Need I say more? :paperbag

February 26, 2011, 10:46 AM
Err... I really like reading shounen-romance manga?

Also I collect Hitman Reborn collectibles (only the useful ones) like bags, ID laces, necklaces, etc. I don't buy the rings because I have nothing to do with them. xD

April 30, 2011, 09:58 AM
- Listening to Sweet Dreams by Beyonce. I can never get tired of that song. ._.
- I have an endless collection of bandanas. All kinds of colours and patterns. Dunno, if I classify it as a guilty pleasure tbh. <.<
- I have a lot of Transformers DVDs. It's still my favourite cartoon to this day. >.< I still hate the new movies. *yelling*

July 25, 2011, 02:45 AM
Dancing shamelessly in my car. And to top it off, I sing as loud as I want. I do all of this with the windows down if it's less than 80 degrees outside.

July 25, 2011, 07:02 AM
On my one hour break at work during weekends I usually go to this empty facility (that has kitchen and everything) next to my villa where I work and first cook my lunch, then spend the rest of the hour singing as there are some great acoustics there. :hurr
