Somehow, the term otaku is very popular among young people today. However, using more does not mean that many people will understand the term thoroughly. So what is Otaku? otaku good or bad and young people are using this much nowadays?
Otaku is a Japanese word used as a term to refer to those who are too addicted to video games, too addicted to anime, have a great interest in comic book, masquerades, 2D paper characters … so much love, that outsiders look at and consider it a crazy then, an overly futile in life. Of course the otaku are caught up in their world and don’t mind the detractors about themselves.
Its meaning refers to those who have an interest in the areas listed above, but that is only negative. Increasingly, the meaning of it became more and more negative, and up to this point, those who were called otaku were no good, but there were many who claimed to be an otaku.
The word Otaku used the first slang term for journalist Akio to refer to employees who could only sit and eat. Only a slang word in Japanese but extremely important to the cultural development of the Japanese. Nobody can identify an otaku just by looking at it in a flash. At least you have to know some important characteristics to understand.
Otaku likes to appear in comic book stores, animated book stores. They even hunt them enthusiastically on e-commerce anime sites. Genuine Otaku will be attracted to characters, situations in a manga, any anime they know, and they will not be able to control the words of that character, the anime.
Another term that has similar meaning to otaku is Weeaboo – this word also refers to people who have an excessive passion for comics, cartoons, games, makeup … but they are people of Japanese nationality. Weeaboo is a term used to describe Japanese 2D culture from foreigners. They become otaku because they themselves want to apply it to themselves.
