Are you proud calling yourself an otaku? ^_^'

well kinda weird isn't it?
we might probably (outsider / non japanese) proud being called as an otaku ^^ but from what i heard or known (especially from densha otoko) that the local people (the japanese) doesn't like an otaku.
The otaku itself has a bad reputation :nya:

Just before i found out that otaku has a bad reputation. I kinda proud calling myself as an otaku but.... after that I just call myself anime and manga freak hahahhaha ^^

so?

well I don't care if in japan they have a bad reputation...I'm not in japan for starting!
I am crazy, yes I am, and otaku here in brazil haven't that reputation. ..the people doesn't know what is "otaku"! I come and say:
"otaku is a person who like anime/manga!"
people: "oh! that japanese's cartoons like pokemon?"
It's in this time that I kill the person xD

Can't say I've ever been called an Otaku, but I'm not sure if I'd mind too much. It would probably just remind me of Otacon from MGS and thinking of that series is always a good thing

No, cuz I'm not an otaku. I'm not obssessed with anything anime or manga, I just like a few series the same way I like Corto Maltese and Futurama.

Labels, labels, labels! What is with you humans and labels!? I'll be called an otaku if it makes everyone else feel better. Or if it'll hook me up with a cute little japanese girl...

It does not bother me. I'm rather proud of being called an otaku. Despite what other people think. (like I really care what other people think anyways!)

I don't think anybody's ever called me an otaku, except maybe jokingly. Can't see a reason to, anyway.

hmm lol I had my mum calling me an otaku after I told her what it meant lol but mostly my dad would just sing "I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so!" lol just because I study the culture and language on top of watching anime all the time haha

I have never been called otaku, but I think that is because people around me don't know the word hahaha. But seriusly I don't think I'm that obsesed.

:: Well yes, otacon from MGS is taken from the Otaku as long as I remember ^^
So I see you guys rather not bother calling as an otaku ha ha ha ^^
well we're not Japanese after all so why bother ^^ ha ha ha

I don't since I don't consider myself to be an otaku. Simple as that. I like anime a lot yes, and sometimes even read manga, but I don't think I'm an all-out fan.
I've only been called an otaku once but that was coming from a friend who didn't really know what it meant, only that it is used to refer to anime fans.
Besides, it's a label and I already have enough of those ^^

YES I am! XD

I already read in a magazin that in japan the otakus has a bad reputation. Whatever x3

Here in Germany nearly nobody knows what that word means, I think. I was often asked for what 'that' is. (Like in Brazil by Tifa-chan)

I am all into AniMa, so why shouldn't I call me an otaku!? >33

Depends; as many of the MT'ers have pointed out, the otaku sub-culture of Japan does indeed have a rather negative reputation, mostly due to this guy in Japan who admitted to being an otaku at his arrest for murduring.
Personally, I don't mind being recognized as an otaku; I'm not the kind to wander around, yelling random quotes. I'm the quiet, dignified otaku, who'll explain it all to you in a mostly unbiased way, if you ask nicely.

*Insert random inspirational message here, please!*
Disregarding reality, one fact at a time! I have every reason to be grateful, yet none to be happy.
