20. Just a question?
How is Otaku offensive - I am addicted to anything Japanese....cartoons, food, culture and I consider myself an "otaku" I even attend japanese animation (anime) conventions. I do also however think of my self being a dork too... :) But I, in essence am an OtakuGirl!

Please dont take any offense to my reply... :hide:
