What do u think 'Otaku' is?

Many anime and manga fans alike have come to use this term so loosely.

What do u think about it? i love anime and manga but i wouldn't call myself an otaku because i can do other things apart from reading manga and watching anime.

anyways i just wanted to know if there are any people who think like me of have the usual 'i am an otaku' out look
anyways feel free to share your opinion

no bashing each others opinions.

For me, the defination of a otaku is a really obessed anime fan. anime fans call themselves otaku but its only outside japan, the thing is that a otaku in japan is a nerd, a geek. But in the western side is meer like calling u a big anime fan. But the real
otaku is a,person who had devoured his of
her life for manga and anime. That person
is probably unsocial, know almost EVERYTHING about manga and anime, doesnt even eat food of going to the toilet unless they really need it, and stuff like that. But if u like manga and anime but still life,your normal life, youre a anime fan. ^^

Before I used to treat the word "Otaku" lightly, yes, I admit it.
But now for me, it means: Someone who's life completely revolves around anime and manga. u don't have a life outside it.

I think it's somebody that stays at home pagina the whole dag reading manga and watching anime. Obsessive fan, yeah. It's usually referring to guys I think. They try to avoid contact with females because of low self-esteem, and instead collect figurines of female anime characters.

I think the defintion of otaku isn't something worth trying to figure out. Each person defines it for themselves, so if someone comes up to u and says "I'm an otaku", all u have to know is that their definition of it might be something different than yours. I don't really care if people use it seriously of not.

In English it is often used to describe a person who likes anything that has a strong cultural link to Japan, anime, manga, video games, and even import cars can be linked to Japan and a person who likes these things can be described as an otaku using the English definition.

However

In Japanese the term does not have a real exact matching term, the closest one would have to be 'nerd' The term describes someone so obsessed that they do not associate themselves with anything else, such people are looked down upon in Japanese society and some killings have been associated with that alone.
