50.
A term taken from Japanese and used in the United States amongst anime afficionados to show their obsessive love for their hobby, further changed by innocent mispronunciation to mean people who, subjectively, have no taste.
Oh, ew, here comes Harold--he's going to talk to us about DragonBall Z, and we'll never escape. What an otaku.

Unfortunately an extremely hated word, the definition for Otaku is, when you get right down to it, an anime obsessor. These (us) are people who love anime. They're obsessed, they're nerds, and they know it (True, from personal experience as an Otaku, and I still am a proud one!).

This doesn't mean that they have no social life. In fact their social life is about the same, if not better, than non-Otakus since there are just so many other Otaku out there to talk with!

Another myth is that they have no social life. WRONG! I have a fioncee` and we're both Otaku. I know guys who are Otaku who have girlfriends, too. Pretty good ones at that.

Just because you're an Otaku and will do pretty much anything for anime does not mean that you have no social life or ever will have one. True that it's mostly on the computer but not always, definitely not always.
I'm an otaku and proud of it! Anyone want to say otherwise? Let me reprase: Anyone want to have their bodies blown out on to the pavement?

Rediculous 50 bigots in the universe who say that everything from Japan is superior JUST because it's from Japan, and everything elsewhere (mainly American) is horrible. They tend to bash America in every way possible, and blame America for 'ruining' things such as anime and videogames with minor things such as poor voice-acting skills. There is a big difference between otakus, hermits, and people that are actually interested in the country of Japan for it's cultural value. The difference is that all otakus do is complain about how Japan does not rule the world and how they believe that everything Japanese is perfect. People, usually otakus, however, tend to get these words confused, unfortunately. They act as Japanese as possible when they really aren't, but it really just makes them look even more retarded. Idiots.
Perfect example of something you'd hear from an otaku: "lol im an otaku and i preffer subbed anime than dubbed anime bcause itz more japaneeese and america ruinz everything even tho i phail 2 understand japanese"

They are people whore are obsessed in one thing, and not neccesary to anime otakus.
Otaku's are people who are obsessed on anything, including anime, cars, etc

For some unknown reason, it's not used against sports fanatics
