All this otaku business is kind of bothering me.
In Japanese, otaku (お宅) means “your house”. It’s still used today, as a honorific form, such as “お宅まで送りましょうか。” - Would you mind if I escorted you home? To differentiate from お宅, the derogatory version of the term is written オタク or ヲタク.
The term ‘otaku’ is literally meant to point out and mock someone who is so socially misaligned, so engrossed in a hobby, that they refuse to exit the house. Now, this hobby isn’t only animanga, though that’s the most prevalent case we see nowadays. There are train otaku, camera otaku, and car otaku. There are probably cookware otaku. The thing that they have in common is that they rarely go outside. Not just because their only interests lie within the confines of their (or their parents’) home - though that does play a large part. They are so focused on their hobby that it’s literally the only thing they can talk about. They can’t talk to real life friends about recent natural disasters or the newest celebrity gossip because they only know about their one obsession. And so a vicious cycle begins, where otaku take comfort from the ever-more-alien world around them by delving deeper into their hobbies. Friends. Jobs. Health. Reputation. Respect for one’s own appearance. All of these begin to fall farther and farther away as their hobbies console them. And past a certain point, it is too shameful, in their eyes, to go back into the world without a guide. That is why otaku are seen as non-productive members of society.
The term’s meaning is changing, yes, and beginning to be seen in a more positive light. We can expect this trend to continue in the future. But don’t get all defensive and angry when people put down the otaku demographic. Because for most people, it’s not something you want to be at all.
