wikipedia describes an otaku a fan of any particular theme, topic, or hobby. Common uses are anime otaku (a fan of anime), cosplay otaku and manga otaku (a fan of Japanese graphic novels), pasokon otaku (personal computer geeks), gēmu otaku (playing video games), and wota (pronounced 'ota', previously referred to as "idol otaku") that are extreme fans of idols, heavily promoted singing girls. There are also tetsudō otaku or denshamania (railfans) or gunji otaku (military geeks).

but what is it really?

An otaku is someone who's overly obsessed with a hobby to the point of being psychotic. These are the people that go beyond the fandom.

You answered your own question. That paragraph from Wiki summed it up perfectly.

He's right.

So from now on, please always trust Wikipedia without any doubts. When a page on Yugi Muto says he's afraid of snow globes, Yugi Muto is afraid of snow globes.

i love the way you answered it! lol~!

this is what i'm looking for. not some technical bullshit. i'm looking for honest answers that come straight from a true otaku's heart.

for example: for me a true otaku is someone who collects pocky boxes after he/she finishes eating pocky because pocky is an anime food.

Someone who admires anime/manga just short of living in their family's basement when they are 35 and not marrying/humping 2D characters.

No, Pocky is weaboo food. Lol I'm joking, but seriously, Is that what an otaku is to you?
I mean it's like saying someone who collects Chocolate Chip cookies, because they love cartoons. Kinda doesn't make sense right?
Pocky is just as a normal snack as cookies.

I collect Pocky boxes, but only because they make good pencil holders.

For me, an otaku is someone who says yes to more than seven boxes on this chart:

i was being creative. for example how someone creative would describe happiness. like in this movie, this guy was being creative and said that happiness for him was going up a hill with a handful of balloons. i was just being creative.

Well since we are posting we all belong to an anime forum...
And how is eating Japanese snack food got anything to do with otaku culture? I like pocky and eat some but not more so than potato chips or cookies. Surely thats just aprreciating different foods.

Anyway I can just about tick 7 boxes, although I would like to tick many more.
