The hub of the Otaku

Post by Guest on Wed Feb 22, 2012 12:03 am

This thread is for talking about Anime,Manga and other Otaku related stuff Very Happy

Otaku (おたく / オタク?) is a Japanese term used to refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime, manga or video games.

Otaku is derived from a Japanese term for another's house or family (お宅, otaku), which is also used as an honorific second-person pronoun. The modern slang form, which is distinguished from the older usage by being written only in hiragana (おたく) or katakana (オタク or, less frequently, ヲタク), or rarely in rōmaji, appeared in the 1980s. In the anime Macross, first aired in 1982, the term was used by Lynn Minmay as an honorific term.[1][2] It appears to have been coined by the humorist and essayist Akio Nakamori in his 1983 series An Investigation of "Otaku" (『おたく』の研究 "Otaku" no Kenkyū?), printed in the lolicon magazine Manga Burikko. Animators like Haruhiko Mikimoto and Shōji Kawamori used the term among themselves as an honorific second-person pronoun since the late 1970s.[2]
Another source for the term comes from the works of science fiction author Motoko Arai. In his book Wrong about Japan, Peter Carey interviews the novelist, artist and Gundam chronicler Yuka Minakawa. She reveals that Arai used the word in her novels as a second-person pronoun, and the readers adopted the term for themselves.

Clannad, Kanon and Busou Renkin ...I liked very much these ones...Clannad is my #1 ! FKING LOVE IT! Very Happy Its so hilarious and its the best drama/comedy/slice of life anime I ever seen...actualy the only anime that made me cry (no fking joke...nothing made me cry by now).
Another good anime that made me shed a tear was Ef - A tale of melodies (not memories)
The one that got my downvotes and made me say "Oh God...WHY?!" was School Days...

Edit: Also a fan of Miku Razz
