Two months ago, two members of the “Otaku” anime subculture, Shino Yonezawa and Yuka Sakurai, decided to do something no otaku in their right mind would do.
The duo, a pair of young anime fans from Japan who also happen to be Japanese-American, decided that otaku should not only become part of otaku culture but should also help develop the hobby in the United States.
This month, they launched Otaku Overlord, a website that lets otaku overlords and their fans connect in real-time, discuss anime, share their favorite otaku quotes, and even give away free copies of the upcoming game, Otaku Tower.
“I started to think about what the otaku world would be like without anime and how I can help otaku get along with their non-otaku peers,” Yonekawa told The Washington Post.
When Yonechawa first started otaku-watching, she says she couldn’t really tell if people were into anime or not.
“I thought, ‘Oh, maybe otaku are into this and anime are not,'” she said.
“And then I saw all the people who were into this stuff, and I realized that’s exactly what I am.
It’s just me, it’s my hobby.”
The pair created OtakuOverlord.com in November to help them keep up to date on the growing otaku community.
On Otaku overlord.net, you can find links to a wide range of popular otaku sites like Otaku, Otakomu, and Otakotime, and they offer support and information for the otakus, which is about 8% of the otai subculture.
The site also has an Otaku Forum, where users can ask questions, chat, and discuss otaku issues, and a chatbot that can answer questions about otaku history and culture.
But for the most part, otaku tend to be the kind of people who can get along easily with their otaku peers and who aren’t afraid to ask questions about what otaku is.
On Otaku.net itself, there’s a section called “What is Otaku?” where you can get a sense of how otaku actually see themselves.
For example, when I was growing up, I’d hear the phrase “I’m an otaku.”
I always thought that meant that I was very interested in anime and other anime-related things.
But as I started to explore the otago hobby, I realized it was really about what I wanted to do with my life.
Otaku are often the people that are most invested in their hobby.
That’s really the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear that.
” I also want otaku to help grow otaku communities in the US.
I think otaku have the potential to really help foster a community that has a sense that they are part of this community, and that they have a place to go to talk about their interests and share their hobbies with others,” Yoneshawa said.
One of the biggest things that Otakuoverlord.org aims to do is provide a platform for otaku.
Otakomus have already started organizing events and forums for otakos to meet and talk about otago issues.
The site also offers an online forum for Otaku to discuss anime.
In fact, one of the founders of Otaku Underground, a subculture in Japan where otaku meet up to discuss otago culture, says he’s been getting messages from Otaku fans who want to organize an otago meet-up.
“We’ve been getting a lot of messages from people saying, ‘I want to be a part of Otakumas otago community.
We want to create an Otakuman,'” he told The Post.
“They’re asking for help, and we’re like, ‘Well, we’re not going to give you any help.'”
The Otaku community is growing in the U.S., with over 50,000 otaku members and more than a million members of Otogamer, the online community for anime fans.
“In the last two years, we’ve grown to a point where there are now more than 2,000 members of our otaku club, which has grown to around 100,000 active members,” YONESHawa said, referring to Otogame’s membership and the number of members.
However, many otaku who are otaku don’t necessarily want to join the Otaku Club.
While some otaku prefer to meet other otaku, Yoneshras said that the Otaku community can be a very diverse group, and he thinks it’s important for people to have their own space to feel like they belong.
“People who are really into anime, they’re not necessarily people that you would think of as otaku,” YONEKAW
