In modern Japanese slang, the term Otaku (おたく) is mostly equivalent to  “geek” or “nerd”. However Otaku term has a somewhat negative connotation in Japanese, it is used for someone who doesn’t have a life (no social life, no love life, etc). In English, Otaku usually refers to an obsessive fan of anime/manga. But a real anime fan doesn’t care what society think about them. They feel proud on being an Otaku because it’s really Ota-Cool.

Ota-Cool

 

Being a fan of anything inevitably leads to problems unique to that fandom and anime is no different. Some of these problems are listed down that only a true anime nerd can understand.
