What does nekomimi mean?
The word nekomimi is actually the romaji of a Japanese word.
Neko = Cat
Mimi = Ears
So the direct translation is "cat-ears".
However the meaning is usually used to mean a humancat hybrid. Aka a human with cat ears.
The lengths at which this human resembles a cat can vary, for example some have tails, cat like personality, fangs, all sorts!
What does it mean to be a nekomimi? in the human world..
Some just add ears to their outfit to make it that little more cuter ... or hardcore (it goes both ways :o ).
Some however go all out and act like a cat, sit in a cage with fangs and paws and purr their head off at the sign of attention.
Being a nekomimi to most is a type of escapism from being human for a short while. Its not usually sexual however some may like to be and thats fine too.
Nekomimi's are popular in the anime world, so a lot of nekomimis also end up being anime fans too. This is how I got into the nekomimi world.
