That would be me. >3
I like video games, anime, and manga. .-. Would I (me specifically, I don't know about others) be writing manga if I wasn't partially otaku. .-.
Hell, I don't even hide it. XD I say as many times as I can, "I'm an Otaku."

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


So? .__.
In my home, people call anime and manga cartoon porn. =__= ... They also say video games are for kids. But that's not stopping me. .-.
Sticks and stones, buddy, sticks and stones. =u=

I salute you. Your passion burn deep!

Calling ourselves otakus isn't disrespecting, it's just to show our loves for animes/mangas/games. The term gotten bad publicity because of haters, not us.

I love being an otaku. It makes me feel like have a real identity, and I know I am an Otaku because one of the best nights of my life (last Thursday actually) involved me reading manga for 2 hours at Borders then walking around the shopping center during a very light rain. It felt good to be alive that night.

O__O
Dude, I had a day just like that. Except it was most of my summer. XD

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?)

I like that anime/manga. OuO

I'm obsessed on anime but i only watch in computer and read manga in computer also.I don't buy things related on anime because my parents just scold me saying "Why are you spending your money on useless thing?" So i guess i'm not an otaku.

If I'm cornering the eBay market on buying up all the goods based on an anime or manga produced by any number of favorite mangaka & threaten people on eBay who try to outbid me on them, does that make me an obsessed fanatic?

Its not how much merchandise you have that makes you an Otaku, its your level of dedication.

I'd rather not self-proclaim myself but no-one intentionally called me an otaku or some other word like that.
