I think we need to establish whether we're talking about the American or the Japanese definition of Otaku. The Japanese Otaku, are those people who are obsessed with a particular area of expertise. When it is taken to an unhealthy point of obsession, where that is the only thing that defines their lives, then I agree, that they are not deserving of their respect. (I have a feeling that there is another Japanese words, for the shutins whose lives are dominated by anime, and such)

But in American Otaku has come to mean any fan of anime. In Japan the word is an insult, but many American anime fans wear the title as a badge of honor. American Otakus are in fact deserving of respect, if only because they care about something deeply in an apathetic society.

.... wat r Otakus???


An extremely negative Japanese term, referring to a shut-in or someone with no social life. It also implies that the person's entire life is molded around fictional characters (usually anime and manga).
In America, the term has been embraced by anime fans, who (as they do with many Japanese words), use the word incorrectly as a positive term for fanboy/girl.

there you go

On Topic: No they do not deserve respect

Of course, they deserve respect. ^^ Everybody should, even if they're Otakus or not.

I think otaku in general, weather we spend money or not should all diserve respect, we r ppl too.
I mean, what they r doing to us in Akihabara is retarded and so degrading to the otaku comunity, so I say yes, give us some respect!

Akihabara is the anime capital of the world, its in Japan and lately the police has been treading us like delincuents, they even search our bags in hopes of finding weapons.
We don't even hurt a fly!

bahaha what kind of question is that..? XD


wouldn't really say the answer is obvious... unless of course your one of those mainstream things trying to be as normal as possible and neglecting yourself to fit in with others to get a high social rank... actually i think that it is accactly these people that needs the least respect even though they are given quite a lot... since they don't as otakus and others do just go along with what they want to... they don't want to let their real self out because they're afraid... no respect for them i say

anyway back on topic: yes otaku's are amongst those that deserve most respect

NO
Posted 12/30/08
No, why should they? What are they doing to benifit anyone? Besides, $10.00 for a manga and $24.00 (plus tax) for an anime is freaking ridiculous. Think of how much money some of them spend on merchandice in a year?
