I know what Otaku Means by Death-by-Sake I know what Otaku Means by Death-by-Sake
I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS

" Otaku (おたく / オタク?) is a Japanese term used to refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime, manga, or video games. "

I get it
Stop telling me 'Being an Otaku is bad" "Why would you call yourself an Otaku?" "Otaku is an insult in Japan" The worst one i've heard is "You're not Japanese" :|

No dip i'm not Japanese, being an Otaku doesn't have anything to do with being Japanese. If you want me to use an english term then fine. I am an Anime Fanatic. Otaku sounds better. :/ Otaku just means an obsessive interest. If you think i'm ignorant and don't know what it means, you may want to look it up yourself.

Being an Otaku is no worse than being obsessed with sports. However, that is considered normal.

To me, everything else is boring. I get raw joy out of watching anime or going to cons, its something I look foward to and keeps me going. I have a lot to say on this subject but i wont rant. I'll be happy to explain my side if you feel like arguing.

One question- Does that mean Okatu is just Japanese for 'nerd' (or 'geek')?

Sweet

Im sorry do you mind if a rant about otaku-haters?



I hear a bunch of otaku rants to be honest it makes me mad! I feel others should just respect what others like! I dislike many of those rude words on otakus Im a proud otaku it's not wrong using kawaii desu in a sentence if that's the way we prefer to talk than that's what we want to. Others think it's bothering and stupid I think those guys just want to look mature or smart it makes me a bit upset and offended. To be honest rants sometimes are unreasonable those otaku haters just want to shove that all on our face. When I was in 5th grade I was always bullied by my two "former" friends just cause I like Japanese manga and anime and I say kawaii desu alot! I don't see why it just seems offending even when those ranters want to look as if we're bugs to them, I'd rather say there more annoying than they think. And my friends always force me to hear music that's english and I prefer to hear Tagalog and Japanese songs and they always shove their insults all over my face :(. They also use Otaku as a stereotypes for nerds. I'm even trying to learn Japanese and I actually speak really good with it. I don't see what's wrong speaking a different language. My "former" friends even made a racist joke about Japanese people! I really hate it when people think we're just nerd just cause we like speaking Japanese in some phrases it's more worse to say bad words when talking in pharses! I hate it when others just shove their mean opinion up our faces it makes me sad and mad at the same time. Also if others aren't into manga and anime just don't shove your rant all over other faces that's disrespectful and rude...

From what I understand, in Japan it doesn't mean just being obsessed, it means being obsessed to the point of neglecting things like hygiene because there's no television in the bathroom. I've seen quotes along the line of "You're not an otaku, I can breath through my nose around you."

But that's why it's an insult in Japan. The English use of the word generally just means a dedicated fan. So Trekkies and bronies would be otaku by the English standard, too.

I still don't want to be called obsessed over anime because I'm not really, any obsession can be bad for you if you don't do anything else. If all you do is watch anime and never go outside and bash those that hate anime...then yeah it's not good for you to be obsessed with it.

I love anime sure I'm just not a fanatic over it and I don't think about it everyday, because I've seen and watched things that are BETTER than anime like asian dramas/horrors, martial arts movies, the movie Twister, etc :)

Wow, really reading your description got me hyped up. I support your side!~ Being an Otaku may be looked at wierdly by the "normal people" but once we're in our own element (cons), anyone who isn't is considered the odd one. xp I think I'm obsessive pretty much 'cause I think about it everyday, during every class, when I'm online, as I'm falling asleep (lol). I get what you mean, 'everything else is boring'. I could say anime and manga are my life in some aspects, since some of them even saved my life. :}
