Otaku love dating
The modern slang form, which is distinguished from the older usage by being written only in hiragana (おたく), katakana (オタク or, less frequently, ヲタク) or rarely in rōmaji, first appeared in public discourse in the 1980s, through the work of humorist and essayist Akio Nakamori.
His 1983 series An Investigation of "Otaku" , printed in the lolicon magazine Manga Burikko, applied the term to unpleasant fans in caricature.
However, a different claim points to a 1981 Variety magazine essay.
Miyazaki, who randomly chose and murdered four girls, had a collection of 5,763 video tapes, some containing anime and slasher films that were found interspersed with videos and pictures of his victims.
Because this misuse indicated social awkwardness, Nakamori chose the word itself to label the fans.
Another claim for the origin of the term comes from the works of science fiction author Motoko Arai, who used the word in her novels as a second-person pronoun and the readers adopted the term for themselves.
The usage of "(interest) otaku", however, is used for teasing or self-deprecation, but the unqualified term remains negative.Those unable to succeed socially focused instead on their interests, often into adulthood, with their lifestyle centering on those interests, furthering the creation of the otaku subculture.These individuals were drawn to anime, a counter-culture, with the release of hard science fiction works such as Mobile Suit Gundam.Secondly, the vertical structure of Japanese society identifies the value of individuals by their success.Until the late 1980s, unathletic and unattractive males focused on academics, hoping to secure a good job and marry to raise their social standing.
