Otaku is a loanword from the Japanese language. In English, it is usually used to refer to an obsessive fan of anime/manga and/or Japanese culture generally, and to a lesser extent, Japanese video games, Otaku loosely translates to nerd. Japan as a country spawned a nation of people obsessed with the virtual, or make-belief life with different outlets for expression, from Cosplay, to reading manga and playing video games in 24hrs internet cafes.
