an otaku is a word commonly used to describe someone who is either obsessed with Japanese culture or a geek who spends all his/her time watching anime and never leaves the house. these are both false; that is the definition of a weaboo. an otaku is simply a fan of anime and manga and stuff like that. not a geek who has no life; not a weaboo. but sometimes, otakus try too hard and do turn into weaboos. for a better idea of the difference between otakus and weaboos, read my definition on weaboo.

In it's current, "Americanized" context: Social parasites. Usually fat, white Americans (with some exceptions) who, for whatever reason (unclear even to themselves), have chosen to become Japanese Nationalists based on their preconcieved notions of a non-existent Japanese utopia-- Notions which are developed from a lack of socialization and over-exposure to (mostly fantasy-oriented) Japanese animation (i.e., Anime, i.e., cartoons-- FROM JAPAN!)
Honesty is a bitch, huh?

Otaku is a person (typically male) who has absolutely no social life. Thus an otaku may sits around playing World of Warcraft, trading Dungeons and Dragons cards, watching Japanese animations, and jerking off while relishing pornographic material when he is alone. An otaku will be proud of, and will boast about his mighty forearm that developed over the many years of "over-masturbation".
Whilst leading a life of this sort, an Otaku will complain that no girls are willing to give him pussy.
WHYYYYY?????????????? Strange isn't it?
"Fuck, that otaku left cum stains on my sailor moon comic book!!"

"That guy's such an otaku. He plays WoW all day long and goes for a wank before sleeping."

"No one knows why otakus exist, since it is clear they do not mate."
