Ah but what kind of Otaku?

I was never a fan of using the japanese labels. But I suppose despite my love for the sequencial arts, I wouldnt call myself Otaku or HARD CORE FAN. I mean I collect animations and comics, but not on an obsessive level.

gunji otaku?? i dress kinda military. but thats it. i dont like the idea
of being trained to kill another human or any other values
the military seem to hold. i mean i agree to an extent where
you protect your own country and its people. but it could be
done in a non violent way.

i also read comics and manga, watch alot of anime
and also i am somewhat of a gamer.......
but like the person above i wouldnt call myself an otaku.

the majority of my life is not taken up by these things.

Japanese Otaku or American Otaku?

kuz i think of AO as something that's equivalent to Geeks (yes, i believe that if you do geek things, no matter how hardcore you are, as long as you enjoy it, you should be considered a geek---be proud of what you are, Geeks rule the world if you think about it)

Japanese Otaku is just too extreme.. it's beyond our cultural norm

anyway. Geeks that fall under AO are like Gamers(optional), Anime/Manga, those sort of things
not Star Trek geeks or military geeks, but that's just my opinion

Tell the Forum Moderators about that. I love Otaku but the thread who is an anime Otaku have been locked because it was a duplicate to that thread.

Mecha - comes from the English word "mechanical." Though it means any kind of mechanism, it is often used to describe the genre of anime dominated by giant robots. EX: Gundam


Pretty much me.

Da hell I know......

Otaku is a term sometimes used pejoratively to refer to people with obsessive hobbies, most commonly manga or anime.


A otaku term used to describe hardcore fans which is often used to describe hardcore fans of sci-fi, computer games, anime and manga. ...and otaku is a fairly derogatory term used to describe an obsessed fan of something (not necessarily anime). In North America, however, the term is often a badge of honor for hard-core anime fans. Sometimes also used to refer to anime fans in general.

Otaku (playing video games), and wota (before referred as "idol otaku") that are extreme fans of idols, heavily promoted singing girls. There are also tetsudō otaku or denshamania (metrophiles) or gunji otaku (military geeks).

* Cosplay restaurant
* Figure moe zoku
* Freeters
* Fujoshi
* Geek chic
* Hikikomori
