    Doesn't it literally mean "obsessive geek"?

    parallel to our star trek 'obsessed' fans... you've seen them at the conventions
    check out 'otaku no video' for more detail, plus it's a funny anime

    In Japan it's a derogatory term applied to severe Fanboys.

    Here in the states it doesn’t carry the same weight. There’s a huge anime Convention in the Baltimore convention center (early August each year) called Otakon.

    Otakon

    If you don't live in the area make your decision quickly, I heard that Hotels are booking up fast.
