    thats actually really interesting. For all of you who might be doubting, the link is safe/legit.

    thing is, I agree with her. While I would not classify myself as an otaku, its the kinds of things she mentions are pretty fucking sick. Personally, I dont think that kind of behavior should be condoned.

    She's just another mangaka spiteful of her work not generating the revenue she expected. Or wants.

    I have to agree with AK. At the end of the article, a translation of her statement shows that she's proud to lock herself out of society and immerse herself in her hobbies which becomes her life; that definition of otaku or geek is rather similar to that of an emo freak, and are equally useless to the world.
    If you're proud to be a geek, you might as well sell your home and possessions, and live out on the streets, proudly holding up a cardboard sign exclaiming that you're homeless and proud of it.
    I think geeks eventually find that their lives have no meaning and either kill themselves or try desperately to survive the society that they abandoned.

    One problem. Otaku != geek.

    That is kind of disturbing whats going on with the modern otaku? although the ones she described aren't all that great either.

    "Real otaku should go back and shut yourselves off from the world again. The true value of being a real otaku lay in the belief that nobody else understands you"

    now that is a good quote...and it makes me sick at the same time...

    I'm not saying she was right about that. I have no idea if thats what an otaku means or not. I just think the whole loli and other fetishy stuff is a bit much.

    But I thought Otakus were geeks, they are really geeky about manga and anime.

    No. And I quote, "There are no real otaku's outside of Japan. Only pirates."
