Thanks,

In the non-Japanese sense of the term (effectively someone who greatly enjoys anime/manga and anime subculture), yes. In the Japanese sense of the term (an antisocial person who is entirely consumed by their hobbies), no.

No, but thanks to CrunchyRoll I am watching more than I would with just Toonami. "Thirtysomethings love it too ".

Yay, I love being a tiebreaker.

I'm not afraid to identify with the word "otaku," despite some people's hatred for it. Words can have various different meanings. In our culture, otaku means an anime fan. Plain and simple. I don't find it disrespectful to use a word from another language, because that's how language naturally evolves. People adapt English words all the time, and they don't always mean the same thing. There's even evidence that in Japan, the word "otaku" is becoming less stigmatized. So I don't see what the problem is.

I've read dozens of "Otaku Problem's #blah" and almost every one of them pertain to me in some way. But I don't consider my self an Otaku, I don't know I think it's just a bit full of it's self.

I cant stand that word Otaku. I don't care if in America it's not a mean word.... no just stop take what the word really means because it's like having maybe the word Asshole and go to japan and call yourself it because you're in a different country so I can use the words differently and have a different meaning. No you can't it still fucking means what it was made for. Venting over. I love anime to death but no I don't consider myself a Otaku.
