Of all of the kinds of otaku, I am mostly a anime otaku and pasocon otaku. (personal computer otaku)
Otaku
es:Otaku ja:おたく fr:Otaku
An otaku is a variety of geek specializing in Anime and Manga. Whereas some apply this term derogatively, some otaku have adopted the term and proudly use it (much like geek itself).

The word is borrowed into English from Japanese and is derived from the Japanese o (honorific) + taku (house, home). It was used in the 1980s as a second person singular pronoun among hobbyist photographers. As it gained familiarity, the word was soon used by others to refer to hobbyist photographers. Since the photographers were seen as socially unskillful, reclusive, and obsessed with their hobby, otaku picked up those negative connotations and eventually was used to refer to any reclusive, obsessive hobbyist. A common stereotype is the young male otaku who lives at home without a job, has few social contacts outside of his otaku friends, and may even be bordering on a dangerous stalker. Besides anime otaku (who sometimes enjoy many days of exessive anime watching with no rest) and manga otaku, Japanese culture has many other varieties, such as pasocon otaku (personal computer geeks), geimu otaku (playing video games) and otaku that are extreme fans of idols, heavily promoted singing girls. Otaku has stronger negative connotations in Japanese than it does in English, although it can be used either positively or negatively in either language.

In the Unites States, otaku often refers to connosieurs of anime, gourmets of Japanese animation, instead of the fanboy connotation found in Japan."

For all of you who do not know what an otaku is.... know you know.... and also I AM ONE!!!!
