I think I am an otaku cause I spend a lot of time watching anime.For instance my friends ,when I recommend them an anime 40-50 episodes long , the time needed for them to watch it is 2-3 weeks but for me it's just one day . I completed NANA series in just 1 day ,I know that is crazy but can't help myself.

In Japan it otaku means an person fanatically obsessed with something to the detriment of everything else in his life. In other countries, otaku is a term used to describe people into anime and manga (of the Japanese kind).

I think I am otaku, in the latter sense of the word.

That said, it's easy to assign labels to anyone (to oneself or to others) but one must always remember that a person is more than his/her label. Whether it's geek, nerd, jock, cheerleader.... otaku? (Genshiken anyone?)

Yeah, and what about the trekkies who go to Star Trek conventions in droves and dress as admirals at work? I guess they'd also be called otakus? Same thing with the HP, LOTR, and Star Wars fandom, huh?

(usually anime, but thats just a steriotype)... can't it mean nerd too?

I'm a closet otaku, referring to the anime-fan usage of the word. I'll finish loooong series in the span of days and have a huge arsenal of fandoms, but you couldn't guess it unless you asked me directly. In fact, I only own one real physical copy of a manga, which was a gift from a friend, and only have 3-4 anime related objects in my home. xD

I suppose so. Won't nerd be a...a book otaku? Or maybe knowledge otaku (which isn't bad at all)? Lol. So geek would be a gizmo otaku? Ah no, a tech otaku. Yeah.

If you're looking for something that sounds better, in the academe (universities) a 'knowledge otaku' i.e. someone who pursues knowledge for the sake of knowledge is called a purist. These are the people who push the bounds of practical science and make it possible to compute the speed and trajectory of a lunar module in order to slingshot the moon. Sounds sci-fi huh? They probably would have been called nerds/geeks at sometime in their lives. And someone who's in love with the written word is a bookworm.

14 years ago in Anime Club, Most fans were concidered "embarassing noobs" & otaku were "Snobby eletists."

This was the checklist for otakudom.
In order to have been concidered an otaku,
one had to have done ALL of these:

*Attended at least 1 convention.
*Has cosplayed.
*Owns lots of things like shitajiki, wallscrolls, anime posters, illust shuu (mook), mangaka callendars, figurines, dollfies, UFO catcher dolls, & J-Rock magazines.
*Owns at least 1 doujinshi,1 fansub, & 1 OST (soundtrack).
*Has taken a Japanese language class.
*Has seen at least 100 OAVs, movies, & series.
*Buys manga.
*Looks for fanart on Japanese websites.
*Must have watched at least 1 series that wasnt aired on cable TV.

Oh come on.....surely you guys have more self respect than to call youself an otaku!

Over the years, that term has gotten alot of bad publicity and general bad connotations
