    She does have a point with the whole mainstream of the so "Otaku" lifestyle or whatever. However, if geek = otaku she can fuck off because Americas social system created the original culture of the antisocial. Also, whats up with her making Otaku's out to be so emo. I can't speak for otakus but geeks refuse to leave their house not because they are afraid of being mistreated but because they just don't care. This is a group of people who refuse to live in the fucked up standards set by traditional society not emo bitchs who slit their wrists for attention.

    I thought that otaku didn't leave their rooms because they didn't want to - they already had their fantasy land of anime or whatever they were obsessed with.

    Japanese otaku are basically nerds who never leave their room because of their obsession with something. They can be nerds about ANYTHING. Americans have adapted the word to make it mean anime lover (though we know what it does mean...), but technically it's just a nerd.

    American geeks are different from otaku - it's a cultural thing. American otaku are different from the Japanese otaku (first of all, because they're fake, and second, because they want to be something that they know nothing about).

    No. They don't leave their rooms (there's a term for this, but I'm drunk and I can't remember) because they cannot cope with the pressure of responsibility and what not. Not because they obsess over something. If it was because of an obsession, then they'd be missing out on events that sell their obsession like the Comike's.

    No, it's what they call people whose lives revolve inside their rooms. The guys who just drop out of highschool one day and shut themselves up in their room, never to leave it again.

    I've got the word: immature

    Off topic: Why do people use redundant expressions of speech (isn't that redundant?)?

    Sounds like you're defining the word hermit, AK.
