Anime Vocab Lesson: Otaku (おたく)

You often hear this word thrown around, “Otaku” (おたく). Depending on who you ask it can mean a matter of different things.

For the purpose of THIS lesson, let’s assume it stands for ‘awesome individual who loves anime’.

The actual word is used in reference to an individual who is obsessed with computers, video games and anime; it also labels individuals who hang out at home all day. Which, sadly leaves it with a sour taste in the mouth.
We call to embrace the Otaku! Wear it like a badge of pride for all to see. On this blessed day, let Otaku symbolize our massive anime fan base, with whom we share much fun and love with.
