Definition of an Otaku

31 Mar

Otaku:

“a Japanese term used to refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime, manga, and video games. A female otaku is occasionally referred to as a fujoshi. ”

– From Wikipedia-

Well, that is the common definition of an otaku, but I don’t want people to think that Otakus are bad. Otakus just have a “different” way of enjoying themselves and have a “special” type of hobby. It’s not like what common people think- for example: otakus can’t differentiate between the real world and animes or otakus want to marry 2D anime characters. Yes, we are in love with animes and mangas, but we are not lunatics! We can differentiate between the real world and animes.

And this definition really offended me and may offend other otakus!

“Otaku is extremely negative in meaning as it is used to refer to someone who stays at home all the time and doesn’t have a life (no social life, no love life, etc)
Usually an otaku person has nothing better to do with their life so they pass the time by watching anime, playing videogames, surfing the internet (otaku is also used to refer to a nerd/hacker/programmer). ”

– From Urban Dictionary-

Whoever wrote this definition is a pure meany! It’s not like otakus don’t have a life that they like to watch animes or mangas! It’s because we like to watch them and have interest in them that we watch animes and mangas. Plus, we are NOT referred to as a nerd/ hacker/ programmer!! I’m actually quite bad with technology and computers….

So, when I refer to myself as an otaku, I want you guys to know that it is nothing negative, but a simple way to refer to people who like to watch anime and manga : ) And please do respect my interest and other otakus! OTAKUS HAVE FEELINGS TOO.

++P.S.

OTAKUS DO NOT LOOK LIKE THIS! (At least I don’t!)

MONDAY!!

15 Mar

MONDAY!!

Today is the dreaded MONDAY (doom doom doom!) that everybody hates. Is it me or is it me who likes Monday? I think it’s just me who likes Monday.

Why do you think I’m so hyper on a Monday (dreaded day marking the start of a new week… The “*sigh* how am I going to bare until Friday” day)? It because….

I get to watch new episodes of

  • Inuyasha – Final (episode 23)
  • Detective Conan (episode 568- it’s been on TV for like 12 years)
  • Gintama (episode 199)
  • Hitman Reborn (episode 175)
  • One-piece (episode 442)

Last week Inuyasha didn’t play for some reason, so I’m really looking forward to this episode (*it better be good cause I waited for two weeks*)! It’s coming to an end since Inuyasha and his gang are fighting the last battle with Naraku! I’m also anticipating to watch Hitman Reborn and One-piece! This week, Luffy from One-piece is going to recover and try to rescue his brother from prison. But I doubt that he will, cause if he does, it would mean his journey’s going to come to an end, and that’s not going to happen. Ah, and Hitman Reborn! I hope everyone goes back to the past again and live a happy mafia life : ), but they have to fight first.

*** If you just understood what I said above, you are an OTAKU! You’re normal if you didn’t understand : )
