I'd have to say no. It isn't that I don't have an interest in Anime, Manga and all that jazz but it isn't a label I see fitting to me. They are hobbies, amongst others I have, none of which need to be justified by one word.

That and, as Orchid skirted upon, the connotations of Otaku aren't particularly pleasant. I don't really want to be linked to the rape, cannibalism and murder of little girls. :wink:

the only thing i wonder is how would an otaku pay for things if he doesn't have a job like most otaku
it's an impossible dream.. :wnw:
