    Default Otaku who appear in anime

    I was just watching Outbreak company, a series about a NEET kid in Japan who is brought in on a project when the government discovers a portal to a fantasy world. His job is to teach the people in this world of wizards and dragons all about Otaku Culture.

    So what other animes do you know where the people in them are fans of anime and other otaku things? Where they show off their manga, dolls/action figures, and geek out?

    Examples include: Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, Genshiken, Macademi Wasshoi, Comic Party, Cosplay Complex, Twin Tails, Melancholy of Haruhi, Nerima Daikon Brothers, Excel Saga,



     




    For those who aren't sure what qualifies as an otaku http://www.tapanime.com/humor/otakuif/

    For those who know all too well http://www.tapanime.com/humor/general/deotaku.php

    you know you watch too much anime when...
    ...you can speak intelligently in Japanese about spirits, demons, war, death, tournaments, magic, and profoundly soppy love affairs, but the prospect of buying a movie ticket leaves you tongue-tied.

    ..."hai," "baka," and "hentai" come to your lips so easily that sometimes you have difficulty remembering what the English words are.

    ...none of your friends study Japanese, but thanks to you, they all have 50-word vocabularies.

    ...and if they used them in front of their moms, they'd get their mouths washed out with soap.

    ...you go native, to the point of buying Japanese rice in 20-pound bags and clearing all of the furniture out of your living room so you can sit on the floor.

    ...it's 3 am, and you and your best friend are on the brink of a fistfight over whether Ranma-chan or Ranma-kun is cuter.

    ...you have a Ranma outfit.

    ...and so does your significant other.

    ...you're keeping an eye on your little sister for signs of slacking off during school, making eyes at the school's only bishonen, and disappearing suspiciously often for "slumber parties," because if she becomes a magic girl, you want in on the action.

    ...your friends stage an intervention.

    ...but only because they want your tapes.

    ...some poor ex-mugger still hears the words "LEKKA SHINEN!" in his nightmares.

    ...you never bothered getting your new apartment hooked up to cable, and even Babylon 5 is a take-it-or-leave-it thing... but anyone who gets in the way of your mission to get the next Slayers volume is dead.

    ...only, if you'd written the last sentence, you would have worded it, ``Anyone who gets in my way isNakago.''

    ...you've contemplated growing your hair long so that you can put it up in dumplings.

    ...and you're a guy.

    ...you feel like less of a woman because you can't put away 5,000 calories in one sitting.

    ...you're despondent because your chances to become an anime heroine are completely shot--you can cook.

    ...you refer to 21 as "over the hill," and get more depressed the closer that day comes; you're not ready to join the forces of evil, dammit!

    ...it's not a bad hair day, it's a Zelgadis hair day.

    ...your parents draw you aside and ask you whether you're a Satanist, since all of those symbols you practice drawing in your notebooks look awfully suspicious to them.

    ...your kids think that cartoons are supposed to have writing at the bottom.

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    Denpa Kyoshi and Gate are two series that have similar elements. They're pretty enjoyable if I may say so

    The protagonist of Welcome to the NHK. He's a programmer, a NEET, a loner afraid to leave his apartment, among other things.

    You could try checking out Genshiken. I think my favorite of the series would be Genshiken: Nidaime. It might feel like it drags sometimes, but when you find "that" character you like, it's quite nice to watch.

    Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashī features a few otaku people... at work. Quite out of context. Either way, I believe there are lots of them in different series. NEETs are quite popular in Japan, and of course, in anime and manga, as a form of escapism from daily life. I would say most of isekai protagonists tend to be NEETs or hikikomori, after all.

    I watch most of the first season of Genshiken. I didn't care for it. I don't remember exactly why, as it was years ago. Maybe the characters were not that interesting. I seem to remember the main female character was particularly unlikable.

    Genshiken not only stars otaku, thy produced 3 episodes of a nonexistent series, then made the series real... though I liked the original version better and would have liked to see that.

    At the end of Golden Boy he gathers the cat to help make an anime.

    Erika and Walker in Durarara

    Gravity Falls



    Bakemonpogatari makes a LOT of anime references




    Female Otaku are out there... even Sailor Moon was a fan of Sailor Venus

    He's not a programmer. He's a talentless person who went to school for... something. I do know that he put some effort as some sort of story-writer.

    But yeah, Lucky Star is a straight-up otaku slice of life.
