While actual otherkin believe to be reincarted beings such as animals or an entity another plane of existence
The Otakukin believe they are reincarnted Anime or manga characters , regardless of when the the said anime was made they none the less think its real..even if it was made after they were born -.-....
Otherkin -possible to some extent-
Otakukin -Psychos who delve to far into a show and believe they ARE from that show... -
DON'T confuse the 2 or mix them into one ugly definition... Roleplayers foul up the real otherkin community
-Hey jim over theres otherkin.
-Well he was a wolf in his past life.
