In 2018, a Japanese Twitter user decided to do a survey on anime fans’ hygiene habits through a poll and it was discovered that 1 in 20 otaku only shower once a week.

  • Every day: 81%
  • Day yes and day no: 10%
  • Two or three times per week: 4%
  • One time per week or less: 5%

Days ago, voice actress and singer Rie Takahashi took to Twitter to ask her fans to shower before going to her first concert so as not to disturb others. Apparently, there is no culture of bathing every day in Japan.
