o·ta·ku
ōˈtäko͞o/
noun
(in Japan) a young person who is obsessed with computers or particular aspects of popular culture to the detriment of their social skills.
weaboo
A negative term directed to anyone overly obsessed with Japanese culture to the point where they become annoying.Used frequently on the image boards of 4chan.
Most weaboos are uneducated about their obsession of choice and are often noobs who are overly zealous, trying to impress others with their otaku knowledge. Another trait of a weaboo is their desire to "be Japanese".

One is an actual definition and the other is from urban dictionary and you can probably guess which is which.

Okatu is the evolved form of Weebo. While you can catch a wild Weebo in tall grass, Okato can only be acquired by feeding a Weebo exactly 246 candies, one for each eye.

As far as i know in Japan it means someone who never or ralrey leaves the house (not quite like a hikikimori but similar i gueess?).
In Japan its a bad thing.
But the Americanized or westernized version means someone who is obsessed with anime.
I think it leans towards someone who collects anime and wallscrolls and figurines and plays JPRGS and dose not go out much or have a girlfriend, etc.

Just a hobbyist and not all of them are Japanophiles, weeaboo, wapanese or what some of you guys say, Japanotards. Not all otaku watch anime or are obnoxious, immature and ignorant about Japanese culture. I do nerdy things too, but that doesn't mean that I'm a nerd or a social reject.

My personal definition is someone who has deep knowledge about historically and/or present anime. They have at least watch 2 or more anime of every genre (or most genres). Overall it's just knowledge about Japanese animation. I don't think it has to do with Japanese culture
