Otaku-ism

>So I started and finished reading Genshiken the other day. For people who don’t know what that it, it’s a series about a college club of sorts, in which a bunch of otaku gather together and do otaku things. Somehow they manage to snag bishounen and bishojo. This does not tend to happen in real life.

I was pretty surprised by the lack of “hardcore”-ness of it. I was expecting it to be a lot more extreme, I guess. There was quite a focus on porn and eroge. Completely different from Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, but I guess the reasons are pretty obvious.

It seems that most otaku we see (on TV or whatever) all look like crap. Messy hair, bad posture, skinny, and bad teeth. Propaganda, most likely. Well, I guess most otaku are like that…Imagine the chaos it’d be if every otaku were like Danny Choo:

I feel like eating cake. Parents threw out the cake. Am slightly annoyed.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
迷子(maigo) – a lost child. In context, it could mean a lost anything, really, though.
