"Otaku," Mitsuko said carefully in Japanese. - Author: William Gibson

Otaku quotes by Alexei Maxim Russell
#5. They [Otaku] despise physical contact and love media, technical communication, and the realm of reproduction and simulation in general. They are enthusiastic collectors and manipulators of useless artifacts and information. They are an underground, but they are not opposed to the system.

They are the children of the media. - Author: Volker Grassmuck

Otaku (おた) is also a formal way of saying "you". た means "house", and with the honorific お, it literally means "your honorable house", implying that you are less of a person and more of a place, fixed in space and contained under a roof. Makes sense that the stereotype of the modern otaku is a shut-in, an obsessed loner and social isolate who rarely leaves his house. - Author: Ruth Ozeki
Otaku quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#8. Whereas an Otaku is a true connoisseur of the culture, showing the same reverence and respectful distance which any true expert

Otaku quotes by William Gibson
#13. The presence of otaku culture is a grotesque reflection of the fragility of Japanese identity. This is because the "Japanese" themes and modes of expression created by otaku are in fact all imitations and distortions of U.S.-made material. On the other hand, the presence of this culture is connected to the narcissism of the 1980s and is also a fetish that can feed the illusion of Japan being at the cutting edge of the world. - Author: Hiroki Azuma
Otaku quotes by Hiroki Azuma

Otaku quotes by Charles Stross
