Each time you commit words to paper in your own inimitable style, you declare your character and personality traits, your talents and abilities, even your current mood.

It's chaos here. Strange and fast. Just trying to keep my head above the sea of people and smoke and lights and gold lame, sequined, shoulder-padded blazers (they still make those?!?!?), and tube tops stretched lengthwise to barely cover the...ahem...you know. I had no idea a woman could balance on a 6 inch point no bigger that a finger's width around!!

well..hi i'm otaku girl in Thailand
but i do cosplay too
i think be an otaku it's not a bad thing because i'm got boyfriend and i love to walk outside to comix shop or buy some figger your disry was interesting!


Can I just point out, that I am one of those Otaku that you mention that came from England. This trip was one of the regular trips that we organise. http://www.japan2005.anime.org.uk

I am the President, and author of the book described in the article. I do not appear in the photo because at the time, I was taking the group shot.

Oh, and I do use a backpack. So long as I can carry my VAIO, and a goodly amount of anime merchandise then I'm happy. I'm even happier when I'm in Akiba and not dreary old London.


Haha, I am a member of the London Anime Club, I know a few of the British otaku in that photo! I mentioned you on the website:


Hi there
No I am not Otaku, i am just a Internet addiction. he he he
Lawrence, Thank you your post is great. No that PC does not relased in Japan and we don't know the ads.


Hi Mari,

I always enjoy your otaku culture-related articles. I too noticed the use of 'otaku' in the Apple 'Network' commercial. I had some issues with it, which you can read about here if interested: Apple TV commercial disses geeks?. Have you seen any interesting reactions to the commercial from Japanese otaku and/or Apple fans?


I hadn't read the Wikipedia article on otaku. I found it quite interesting. I'd never heard that the term "otome" was used for female otaku.

Mari-san, would you consider yourself "otome" in this sense of the word?


Nobody uses backpacks in Tokyo?
