Top 5 Worst Hobbies a Man Can Have


The latest survey of which male pastimes Japanese womenfolk find utterly unacceptable yields few surprises – idols and figures continue to be rated worse than compulsive gambling and such profoundly suspect pastimes as knitting.

The ranking:

1. Being an idol otaku

2. Figure collecting

3. Pachinko

4. Knitting

5. Horse racing

Predictably the poor men singled out for this have been crying foul:

“Just what hobbies do they prefer? Sports and cooking, is it?”

“A serious response would be ‘me.’ They are always insecure about hobbies being considered more important than themselves.”

“Men might actually turn out better at knitting and other handicrafts. Anyone would be grossed out by an idol otaku though. No man would want to date a Johnny’s otaku girl, would he?”

“Trainspotters are actually the worst, though they are not included by the looks of it.”

“What is wrong with knitting? You can spend forever enjoying the creation of one piece!”


“I do not get what is wrong with figures.”

“Bishoujo figures, like other moe pleasures, are just considered creepy. And they hate collections too, they get in their way.”

“If women complain so much about spending money on a hobby they ought not to spend even more themselves. Unless they have much more cash themselves, of course.”

“The most costly hobbies you can have are women and gambling. Those two generally account for most life crises.”

“What hobbies women like:
Sports (soccer, snowboarding and the like especially)
Playing music (guitars in particular)
Fashion (but only if you are hot)
Driving (but not if you are into sports cars)
Karaoke (but not if you like anime songs)

“Are there really any hobbies women will not be grossed out by?”

“Pretty much all women flail when asked what their hobbies are.”


“You would recoil if they said that – same with girls busy with FB or whatever.”

“Aromatherapy, hot yoga and anti-aging…”

“Thank goodness collecting model guns and swords isn’t on the list! Collecting tools is OK too, great.”

“I got hooked on NMB48! I went to the handshaking events, I was surprised to find lots of cute girls there, and some hot guys, and of course lots of creepy otaku.”

“There are a lot more female idol otaku these days…”

“Figure collecting isn’t for losers though. They cost a lot and you need a proper space to display them.”

“Well, I actually managed to turn 4-5 on to figures when they initially said it was creepy. Though I now regret it.”

“Anyone can enjoy looking up a figure’s skirt.”

“I am collecting only Nendoroids as I believe women will be accepting of them.”

“No way, I have them and they still hate them.”

“Try dating female otaku?”

“Female otaku want to date normal attractive guys though.”

“For figures you can get away with Dragon Ball and the like. Maybe even Evangelion. But not moe anime…”

“Even those go out with the trash if you get married though.”

“People who complain about other people’s hobbies are the most creepy of all.”

    Going to hostess bars and stumbling home drunk & smelling of tobacco is cool thou, right? Cause that seems like a really popular hobby over there.

    Except overseas you can't smoke so you just come home drunk with body glitter all over you from the lap dances.

    Not sure about the hostess bar part.

    That aside, knitting?? 1) Are there so many men that knit stuff that women are getting annoyed at it? And 2) wtf's wrong with knitting? :O Not that I know how to do it or anything, but sounds like a useful skill to have.. nothing to DQ someone over. o.O

    Or you could say:

    1. Spend money on me instead

    2. Spend money on me instead

    3. Spend money on me instead

    4. Don't make something for me, spend money on me instead

    5. Spend money on me instead.

    Or maybe they are smart enough to not fall for idol's cheap tricks.
    Collecting figures may be a sane hobby, however, one must ask themselves what kind of figures they're collecting. If they start collecting semi-naked figures of little girls, then that may be it.
    Or maybe collecting figures in the first place is otakuish and they just have bad rep.

    This reminds me of a survey made and published by the platinum industry to men. It said that 80% of american women want platinum wedding rings and other jewelry. If the platinum industry seiz so than it must be right... Right?

    Those hobbies are all pretty pussy like. I'm a programmer...I also lift and ride a 2008 GSXR-750 for street, and 2010 CBR600RR for track. I don't hang out with weak fucks like the ppl who have those hobbies.

    Now, if you come to this site for the women and fappable shit...that's cool lol

    I dunno man, they seem pretty reasonable. Would you want to date a chronic gambler for example (3 and 5)?

    Collecting figures kind of depends on the amount/type imo.

    The only really weird one on the list that seems really out of place i think is knitting.

    Actually most women would tolerate those as long as the man is 'ikemen'. If anything, it makes the ikemen looks 'unique' or 'cool'.

    If the guy in question is ugly, it doesn't matter what he likes because everything he does will be considered creepy anyway.

    Just watch their thrashy variety shows.

    I'm curious why that's even on the list. Exactly how big is the Japanese knitting scene these days? It kind of gives me the impression these women were given a limited selection of choices to select from.

    No, this is way too stuffed. Figures need some space around them to look good. This looks like a board full of junk.

    Elegant would indicate that it was dignified in its simplicity. What you see here is called "clutter".

    1. Pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner.

    2. (of a scientific theory or solution to a problem) Pleasingly ingenious and simple.

    It could still be elegant.

    remember... you can recruit long ranged classes from other races.. if they dont get what they need to fullfill their goal from their own race.

    sadly.. noone agrees with me.

    How about collecting figure and donate some money to the poor.. That way, both side win. You can do your hobby while still be helpful to the other unfortunate human being.

    If they can't afford food, then they should work more or go on the ramen noodle diet. Instant ramen noodle is cheap and easy. I speak from experience from being a college student.

    If money is an issue, then as stated before they should work more. Two job is not unheard of before, heck I knew some people that did this.
