"Otaku" isn't that simple... do some research before you say you're one~~~
check out japan's news, and after that I think half of the people who said they're
otakus may change their mind~~


Yes. I am Japanese. Do you guys even know what "Otaku" means? Haha it's not something to be proud of. If you call yourself an otaku in Japan, people will think you are strange. And weird. So, considered the "American" type "otaku", I guess I'm sorta one. I love anime and manga, but yeah... I don't like to call myself an otaku. Here. Taku, meaning home. Otaku refers to someone who stays at home all day and doesn't have a life. They don't love anyone, don't talk to anyone, etc. etc. They stay at home because they are so interested in a certain hobby (It doesn't have to be anime or manga).


I'm going with the American version of being called an otaku. We tend to do that here. Take a negative term and make it a term of endearment. Look at yankie doodle dandie. LOL Also that last part i'm curious then whats the difference between an otaku and a hikikomori? Do hikikomori have more mental problems rather than an obsession?

I guess the American or Westernized version of otaku is just someone who watches a LOT of anime or reads a LOT of manga.

If you believe you are an Otaku just because you watch a lot of anime or read a lot of manga i would highly recommend you read up on what an Otaku is. I just see it strange and it annoys me slightly when people who go through an "anime phase" instantly start calling themselves an Otaku. However there are those who know well enough the true meaning of Otaku and will know if they are or not, and can tell if someone is putting on a false identity.

I myself am incredibly addicted to video games/anime.. I understand and know I have this addiction and several times I have turned down a night out with friends to stay home and complete a anime series or level up on my online games or finish the last level of a certain game. My mind is constantly on that of the virtual world aswell, and I enjoy Cosplay etc. But I am still not in the category of a fully pledged Otaku and am what would be considered a "normal" person. Even in speech I will refer to phrases from video games or use ironic words that the person I am talking to looks at me like I've had a few to many magic mushrooms. (see what I did their? ) I probably do show signs of an Otaku but not a complete Otaku, I can still distinguish reality to and make believe. Although the make believe world is pretty....
