What do I do…? （´・ω・｀）

It’s always been meaningless.

You can start being a wota out of loneliness, but idols will never fill the hole of loneliness that’s in your heart.

Being a wota doesn’t define my whole life. I don’t buy several CD’s for the sake of one event, it’s more than enough for me seeing one concert of a tour, and even when my oshi puts out a photobook or a DVD, I’ll only buy it if I like it. But lately even the little time and money I do put into it is starting to feel pointless to me.

I felt like you when I quit being a wota, too. That was seven years ago.

I quit being a wota when I got a girlfriend, but I look back on my wota memories with fondness.

I couldn’t care less about not having a girlfriend, but the fact that this one idol who’s the same age as me is so active in her work whereas I’m just a complete loser failure at life… She used to make me happy, but now she just makes me hate myself.

I feel weak when I see wota couples at venues.

I retired after Yuukarin’s graduation. This year has been nice and relaxing.

At the end of the day, the stay-at-home-wota wins.

Seeing my oshi on TV now after quitting being a wota, it feels like seeing an old ex-girlfriend doing her best. (laughs)

They’re an outlet for sexual desire and a source of moe… but it’s still only pseudo-love. You’ll only ever be able to touch their hands, and while you can talk to them, you’ll never get to talk to them for even a full three minutes.

Wota life is so fun for me. My only problem is the lack of money.
41: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/02/11(土) 14:33:31.17 ID:0
By “being a wota”, do you mean going to an event of some kind at least once per week, traveling outside of your city and all that stuff? If so, I’ve never lived the wota life. Some of my my mixi friends who do definitely creep me out.

It’s now come time for you to live for yourself. Invest in yourself. Show everyone and shine, shine like your oshi!

For me, I place time put towards wota activities at the very bottom of my priorities in life. Is there anyone here who has their oshi as the very center of their lives?
65: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/02/11(土) 15:21:50.34 ID:0
I definitely feel like my oshi is the center of my life, but I need money to go to events and I need to work to get money. There are events I haven’t been able to attend because of work.
67: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/02/11(土) 15:23:27.98 ID:0
People who follow them through all their tours and events even in the countryside have to have being a wota as their maximum priority. It’d be impossible otherwise. Even if money is not a problem, you still have to sacrifice time.

I’m currently a student taking entrance exams and I’ve pretty much given up on national schools, but the other day I got accepted to a private school. That’s all fine and good, but the tuition’s just crazy… If I do start at that school, I don’t think I’m in any place to continue with any wota activities anymore. Well, I guess it’s already weird enough being a wota when I’m taking entrance exams. (laughs)

This is your only chance to pull back. Just stick to being a light wota.
86: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/02/11(土) 15:35:40.15 ID:O
I only attended two concerts last year so I’m a pretty light wota already as it is, but that was because I was holding off on going to more for the sake of my future… I mean, I don’t even like events and stuff to begin with so that’s fine, but I do want to go to concerts…

Life without any hobbies is boring. All things in moderation.
106: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/02/11(土) 16:03:30.57 ID:O
Nowadays I don’t go to both the afternoon and evening performance anymore, and I’m good with going to just one release event per single. I think my graduation might be near.

The venues at H!P-related concerts are fun, but it does all feel so meaningless somehow.
129: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/02/11(土) 17:15:15.65 ID:0
Long ago I used to think that concerts are something you only go to when the artist comes to your hometown. Maybe I should go back to those days…
134: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/02/11(土) 17:31:12.25 ID:0
Now that I think about it, the average person doesn’t even have a hobby that they feel this passionate about.
136: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/02/11(土) 17:57:22.51 ID:0
When I started seeing all the unpleasant wota at venues, it stopped being fun for me and I stopped going entirely. I guess it’d work out if I only focused on looking at the stage, but…
137: 名無し募集中。。。 2012/02/11(土) 18:33:03.04 ID:P
Well, if you feel tired of the wota life, it’s fine to just take a break from it. When you think about it though, being a wota also includes other hobbies like travel (going to concerts in faraway places), gourmet (eating on your way back from concerts, etc), sports (furicopy), etc. It’s the ultimate hobby. You’ll come back to it if it was meant for you.

It does feel like for a lot of guys their sole purpose for living is that one weekend concert.
Henkka: I don’t know why I’ve done so many threads about the negative aspects of idol fandom lately. I need to look for an “I’m an H!P wota and my life is perfect in every possible way” thread.
