The Otaku Soul
Otaku- noun;an avid collector or enthusiast, esp. one who is obsessed anime, videogames, or computer and rarely leaves home
Am I the only one who thinks this is wrong? I mean, I know pretty much every cosplay stereotype there is, and this pretty much sums it up. So much for unbiased dictionaries.
I am a cosplayer; there is a special area in my heart reserved for my otaku. I tell you, this is not the meaning of otaku, but rather an opinion of those who disrespect it. Sure, we may be obsessed with anime, manga, and rpg's, but really, think about it. Would you say this about soccer or football?
"Otaku is like a club, a group-" No. Stop right there. We are a family, with mutual respect and friendship for all who venture into our home. Being one myself, I definitely don't fit this definition. I play lacrosse on a popular team. I am an artist and a fashion designer. I am a gamer but I'm not on my PS3 or DS 24/7. I am a writer. A friend. A daughter. Family. I am just a young girl who enjoys what she does and who she is.
Don't you see something wrong with that blurp on the top of the page?
