Otaku is a slang term in Japanese that uses a type of person, weird, makes friends like them or refers to someone who is too passionate about something, especially anime, manga, or game. This word in the world is generally understood as those who read comics and watch cartoons.
Nowadays, “otaku” is for lovers, anime and manga fans in general. People who are crazy about vocaloid or anime, manga claiming to be “otaku” and proud of it. Even now the events on this topic are very interested and enthusiastic among young people all over the world. It has become a trend.
Moreover, each person has a unique way of living, nothing called abnormal. Just like words: there are no two words that are completely synonymous, substituting for each other in all circumstances. If so, 1 in 2 will be annihilated. So no one can be like anyone.
This is a survey from the website of a Japanese company called DIP which is a company specializing in job introduction. They conducted a survey on the Otaku theme and received feedback from Japanese men and women from the age of 10 to 49.
In it, only 37.4% identified themselves as Otaku. And more surprisingly, nearly two-thirds of the rest – those who have no or very little experience with Otaku’s life or passion spend time answering all questions. In the poll, there is an interesting question that today’s article wants to focus on. That is: “When you hear from OTAKU, what do you think?”.
The Otaku often shop for their headscarves with prints, names or things related to their favorite idols, singers, voice actors …. The original goal was for hair to not obstruct their eyes while “studying” the subject. Later became a popular style of Otaku.
