1. Japanese for "nerd."
2. A big anime fan. Unfortunately, the name has been disgraced thanks to the large majority of otakus being 240 lb, 30-year-old white men who don't have a life.

If you do Cosplay, you are definately an Otaku. You suck at life.

1: Another version of the word "you" in Japanese (which includes anata, omae, kimi, and so on) this word when used by someone, connotes that that person would like to stress the boundaries between your relationship. You are only to be acquaintances and not friends.
2: A new slang term, rooting from the first definition, referring to fanatical or obsessed people, usually known to be withdrawn in many cases.

Someone (such as me) who has an extreme love and obsession with Anime, Manga, Japanese Video Games, Cosplay and anything that has to do with Anime in general.

As you may notice most people define Otaku as someone who has nothing else better to do with their life but sit at home and watch/do the things I have listed above. Which is NOT true. We Otaku have many things to do, wether it's watching Anime or stressing over if our Cosplay is going to get here in time for the next Convention/Expo, I can assure you it is over infinity times better than what most of the people that say those things do. Which is most likely sitting at home eating them selves to death because they wish they had something to do.

And to note that in a previous definition of Otaku, that person said that the word "taku" means home and that that links to THEIR so-called definition. If you know Japanese at all you would know that Otaku (おたく) means "Geek" or "Nerd", which clearly shows our (being us otaku) love for Anime, Manga, Cosplay, etc.

I made this to show my love for Anime and to stand up for the TRUE MEANING OF OTAKU!!!!!!! >:O

Sayuri (me): "I am a MAJOR "OTAKU!!!!!!!" ^ ^"

Otaku are smelly, furry, plump creatures that are usually found in their natural habitats: their own mother's basements or in their dark rooms where the only sources of light are the bright glow of their computers or television
