Random Sauces From All Around The World

Otaku – おたく


What comes to your mind when you hear the word otaku? Is it the just like image on the left? Until recently, I always think that otaku is like that. However, a certain  collection of photos has changed my mind. Before going to the photos, let me discuss the meaning of the word otaku itself.

The word, I believe, has negative connotation in the country where the word came from, Japan. People out of Japan believe otaku refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime, manga, or video games. (according to Wikipedia). I would like to add: hardcore fan of anime, manga, games, cosplay, figure, or idol.

This article made me LOL – the writer is from Japan?:

Otaku (Japanese: 糞便の巨大な固まり plural: “otaki” lit:”dungeon troll”) 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. The word ‘otaku’ is commonly mistaken by stupid Americans to mean “lovingly devoted”, but means in Japanese “scary, pale, sociophobic pedophile”. No matter what race they originate from, otaku quickly become white due to lack of sun from watching anime or surfing Gaia Online all day (see vampires). They sit in their parents’ basement or room all day, watching Japanese cartoons called anime. This always involves tentacle rape of women with blue hair. An angered otaku spits acidic venom, however, this rarely happens, as otaku do not spend much time around anyone who annoys them. The last documented case was the Boston Massacre. Their choice of food is chocolate cornets, the droppings of Pikachus.

Read that quoted words! I LOL-ed reading that. Anyway, back to topic, this time I want to share with you guys a photos article (on DannyChoo’s website) of an extraordinary otaku room. So clean and stylish! Here is a preview picture:

I wish my room were like that too! It reminds me that I have to clean my room more often, haha. There are a lot of mangas, CDs, game consoles, figures, and many more. Make a visit here if you are interested.
