Anonymous sent: I'm a Japanese American and while I really don't care what term you call yourself, you guys honestly do annoy the crap out of me. You've essentially turned this culture, one that is partially mine and is my ancestors into a joke. It's one thing to love something, it's another to make it look ridiculous. I'm sorry, I'm not trying to be mean but people who are obsessed with anime like this treat me like I'm a fucking object just because I'm Japanese. UGH.

Valid and appreciated opinion. Thank you. 

People, do not treat other people as objects. It is one thing to respect and admire someone else’s culture, and another to project your fantasies of their culture onto other people. 

Anime is awesome, but anime is not Japan. :)

Anonymous sent: Also, otaku is originally an honorific term for home and family. "nerds" started using it because of Macross and because as slang it implies a tight knit group separate from others. It is only so negative now, because older people think otaku is automatically a pedophile and weird. Because of a child rapist, murder named Miyazaki Tsutomu. Otherwise, it is not really a bad word. A word to stop using incorrectly, is hentai. It means pervert, not porn. You confuse people when you use it wrong.

Thank you so much for this information! I knew about this, but I suppose many people have not. 

Thank you!

Anonymous sent: I am Japanese American. There is nothing wrong with someone using otaku. I have never, even once heard another Japanese complaining about foreigners using the word. Only foreigners complain about it so they can pretend like they know us and know how we feel. Just because they are easily offended they think we are. I am more offended you assume you know me. I prefer someone is "otaku" than judgmental of others. Be nice and leave others alone. You are not Japanese, do not speak for us.

And here we have it, folks! Straight from the source!

Thanks for sending in your thoughts, Anonymous :)
