Crazed Seiyuu Otaku in Neptunia Rampage: “Bring Me Rie!”

tanaka-rie-fan-rampage-aftermath

A Hyperdimension Neptunia anime event attended by Rie Tanaka has been cancelled after an fan wielding a crowbar burst onto the stage demanding she be brought before him to face retribution for the crime of marriage.

According to online accounts by those in attendance or connected with the event, the incident began at an anime talk show event for the upcoming Hyperdimension Neptunia anime, which was attended by the seiyuu cast including Rie Tanaka.

Suddenly a man wielding a crowbar burst into the event and took to the stage, claiming “there is a criminal amongst you!,” and demanding “bring out Rie Tanaka!” whilst reassuring the rest of the terrified seiyuu that he would only harm “the criminal.”

The seiyuu immediately took the decision to flee the stage, and all escaped without injury. Staff bustled the man outside even as he himself demanded they “call the police!”

Unsurprisingly, the event was cancelled and the man arrested.

Various sources identify the man was as a seiyuu otaku fan of Rie Tanaka who had become enraged at the fact of her marriage, and was apparently also responsible for various attempts to disrupt her fan club.

Year-old posts from 2ch ranting about her marriage and the possibility of her being pregnant may well be the same individual, and certainly seem consistent with the kind of maniacally creepy behaviour both seiyuu and idol fans are notorious for.

    … Preventing your “idols” from having a good and happy life isn’t what you should be doing… you should be happy for them… not wish them death.
    You yourself never had a chance with them to begin with, you’re just some no-name unknown to everybody, yet you think you are entitled to the happiness of your “idols”? Grow up already, you’re just throwing a tantrum.

      Do you even know how the idol system work?

      Idol, unlike singer or actress, is a job about giving dream to the fans. Give illusion of a dreamy woman that everyone can adore and do it in a way so the otaku think they have chance with her..

      It kinda like a secret crush, where a guy/gal secretively admire somebody they know, but keep quite about it, and constantly imagine in a fantasy world, which they are dating/be close her.

      The otaku also join the poll popularity voting, as if they support their own “spouse” from far away. Sound like a romantic novel material, to bad its all in the otaku’s head.

      The idol want-to-be know this, its in the contract that idol are not suppose to be dating. The idol give the otaku the dream, in return otaku give her the yen.

      So, it either quit being an idol if planning to dating and such, as the dating act will shattered the illusion, make her popularity down and anger fans, or never being an idol in the first place.

      Quick cash and popularity (being an idol)came in hand with bizarre risk and rule(no dating).

        But Tanaka Rie is not an idol. She is a seiyuu. Her job is not to be some lonely NEET’s imaginary girlfriend. Her job is to provide voices to characters in anime and video games.
        Also she sometimes sings. Sometimes in character.
        That she looks smoking hot in swimsuit photos is a giant bonus.

          Not to mention that she’s damn fucking good at her job, and bristling with talent (something that can’t necessarily said about most idols). Which was actually the main source of her popularity.

        None of this really applies to Rie anyways. She DID quit doing the cosplays and such after she got married.

        This guy was just an idiotic ass.

        I hate how Japan just caves to people like this. The whole event ended prematurely do to one nut with a crowbar.

      • Most of the people here are weaboo japanofile westerners who judge Japan by what happens in their own country and culture so they talk out of their asses like they know everything and end up embarrassing themselves like op. But you are right, just ignore people like this who think playstation is better than xbox just because its Japanese and japanese girls are better looking than korean girls just because they’re Japanese. 🙂

        • Yes I do come back to check comments, well really to count them, I can’t be bothered to read through all my fan mail as most Idols cant, but I must say I am quite impressed with myself for being able to draw so much attention. Bullying me? lol sure ok whatever makes you feel like you’re winning something. I wonder if I can reach my goal of 100 butt hurt comments dedicated to me. Its hard to do it if only one or two of you reply per 1 of my posts. If I can get numbers like 10-15 whiney comments about how stupid or desperate or weak ass or whatever else I am per 1 of my posts then maybe I can meet that goal lol. Hmm what else can I say that’ll make you feel so stupid that you can’t stop yourself from hitting that reply button lol. I think my fame has come to the point people are just happy and excited to see that I replied to them lol. I don’t mind bringing happiness to my tsun tsun fans.

          Taylor doing mental gymnastics trying to figure out other people’s motivations while desperately searching through all the comments without trying to look butthurt is pretty fun to watch 🙂

          Let’s bully taylor some more this is getting to be a very fun thing to do here.

        • Lol damn look at all these comments dedicated to ME again hahaha. Damn Im sorry Im not trying to take over every topic but Im just so famous and important that it ends up happening. Anyway once I start reading your replies and I see that its an angry rant I just keep scrolling and ignore the rest of what you want me so desperately to read, I do that to ensure you wasted your own time by writing it so I can lol. But thanks anyway for dedicating so many comments to me. All the attention makes me blush 🙂

          And Taylor. You’re not a troll. And you’re certainly not witty. You’re just a very sad little person. If your behaviour around here is giving you the thrills in your life, then here’s some advice. Find something else to do. This is not healthy for you.

          @Taylor

          You sound pretty anxious and nervous yourself seeing as you keep coming back to check if someone upstaged your comments. What’s the matter, scared someone will verbally can your ass if you don’t defend yourself? How pathetic do you think your ‘logic’ sounds when people make simple but pointed comments about why you are wrong and you can’t even respond, instead just bitch and moan so you can slink away with your ass held high? Besides, people can tell someone with actual shit and some spine aside from just another all-mouth loser who watched dark knight one too many times and thinks it’s some kind of deep profound shit. People can smell that kind of insecurity and pathetic attitude a mile away. You sound more and more like a scared jr.high kid.

        • Anonymous says:

          Hm, something logic and intelligent, you say…? That seems… like, something weird of you to say.

          You see, Taylor:

          “Logic” is ALWAYS tied to rational thinking. It is its main, base principle.

          “Logic” is neutral, as well (as in, it is independant of human’s influence, definitions and perceptions).

          “Logic” involves to explicitly show general rules, objective, undeniable evidences when using it for argumentation against a point made, be them physical or logical (“logical” as in the contrary of “physical”… you know what I mean).

          Ultimately, “logic” cannot be hand-on-hand with anything personal, and that extends from word usage to intentions (your only intention would be that of being right, but not for the HELL of being right, either).

          While I do agree on the fact that this site is not precisely populated by people who know how to think logically and/or rationally, I would not say that you, Taylor, are a big exception, either…

          Your “logic” seems to be tied to opinion more than to rational thinking (it does not imply it is always wrong, but it does not assure it to be right, either, and it would be likely a coincidential occurrence).

          Your “logic” is usually not neutral; it is always leaning to one side of the topic you are treating (specifically, whatever is the opposite of what you PERCEIVE is what most people here think).

          Your “logic” almost never seems to be tied to any general rule or evidence… at least, none that you care to show, and pre-assumptions are illogical since true logic does not take anything for granted unless undeniable (TRULY undeniable, I mean) or proven beforehand through the use of rational argumentation (which also needs to be mentioned, anyway).

          Ultimately, your “logic” drops down to being an egotistical pursuit of a personal, subjectively valued goal you set up before starting to even type here, which, needless to say, is far from being a logical approach to anything. From your approach, being right is but a secondary intention, IF an intention at all…

          Thus… like I said at the beginning, I do not understand why you mention logic and intelligence so often and together… Not only one has nothing to do with the other (if you are intelligent, you SHOULD know that being such is not really related with the art of rational thinking: anyone can do it, knowing the principles of the process, which only requires knowledge, not high-level intelligence), but also, you are not applying the first one very well, if not at all.

          You may actually be smart, for what I have observed. Truly, I do believe so, as you do note xpress yourself like an average person would. But, as for being “logical”…… well… no, not really. It probably has to do with the fact that trying to be a troll and being logical at the same time has proven to be a total impossibility, so you should not feel bad about it; you ARE attempting the impossible, after all…

          Who knows, I bet that you, in real life, are actually capable of logical, rational thinking and argumentation, but not when trolling here, of course. And in the VERY, VERY UNLIKELY case of that you are, indeed, not trolling (like all trolls say, but all fail to actually hide)… then you have a problem which is beyond helping for a normal person like me. I am no psychologist, nor do I treat Internet addiction cases, nor can I hope to cure a person of its constant need to feed his/her ego to unimaginable scales… I am actually relieved to know such case is very unlikely; I would feel bad for you, was that the case… Nothing worse than a fool person passing to be smart; we have way too many of those already.

          And if, by any chance, none of what I said makes you think at LEAST a bit… then I am afraid you are neither logical OR smart because, as the saying goes: “the fool and the ignorant is sure, while the smart and intelligent doubts”, in which case… disregard everything I said, as I worded everything under the context of “I am replying to an egotistical, yet potentially smart person”.

          … I think that about wraps it up. Do apologize me if I took too much of your time (though I assume you have much of it, seeing how you post on almost every article and reply to almost every comment towards you almost every day [if not EVERYDAY] with almost every reply being too long for almost everyone to care to read them all, specially considering the lack on punctuation on your posts). With some luck, it was worth trying on my part and, if not, exercising my still-raw knowledge of logic does me good, fruitful or not, and I know more than one person will read this, so I guess it will reach at least ONE person… If not you, then someone else and that, for me, is enough to say “objective fulfilled”.

          I know it was far from perfect, but I do believe I, at the very least, made the differentiation between “your” logic and actual logic clear enough, as well as pointing out how logic and intelligence are not directly related. I do fear that this might result in making you a good troll and, by analogy, an actual annoyance even for those not mentally challenged, so far your only “audience”, but… as a rationally-thinking person, I do not take sides when the goal is to state the truth as it is, as that would be adding a personal goal to a logical discussion, which is simply NOT logical, so… well, too bad if I end up making things worse for the majority here; know that I did what was objectively correct to do.

          Good day. Oh, and thanks for giving me a reason to type a wall of text. My mind always seems to feel clearer and lighter after a good season of typing… Heh, ironic: I start to understand why you may do this everyday, even if just to piss others off.

          I’ll make this short and sweet for Mr.LogicalAnonkun

          “And if, by any chance, none of what I said makes you think at LEAST a bit… then I am afraid you are neither logical OR smart”

          This is called a false dichotomy. And it is a logical fallacy.

          If you understood logic enough that you would preach to Me, you probably would have avoided one of the most common and basic of fallacies. Your post is filled with many more I could point out one after another. If you really want to get technical we can do so. I’ve been to this rodeo many times with atheists who seem to all swear they have monopoly on logic. Don’t underestimate me, I’ve had this debate many times. I conclude your teaching on logic I should probably take with a grain of salt. But thanks anyway. You tried.

          Looks like this scared little fuck needs a good fucking to wake him up. Tell you what, you tell us exactly what you want to say in public, and we will let everyone know what a brave and rebellious know-it-all kid has to say in order to ‘lecture’ other people with nothing but attitude and runny mouth.

          Here we see a true product of western society’s worst elements. A fuckin kid with too much ‘knowledge’ and ‘intelligence’ talking out of his ass pretending he’s the fuckin joker or someshit. Not a sliver of real experience, but somehow knowledgeable and a general know-it-all brat regarding any topic. All about being the ‘rebel’ without knowing what it actually means. You remind me of those wanna-be gangsta kids who get scared of going to the big house for eight to ten but all mouth in the hood. Except you don’t even have the balls to do that in reality, only on this porn site. The colorado shooter is your idol eh?

          If you want to know why no one bothers to reply to your half-baked ‘logics’ that only serves to jack you off mentally, then live for another 10 years and look back on this moment in shame and embarrassment knowing what a little mouthy fucker you were.

          Some serious lol here folks. Why doesn’t this kid have the balls to actually make this serious instead of having ‘balls’ to set up an account on a porn site (not even a real name or anything) and bitch like a slut in heat? You think talking shit and acting like a little gay bitch in a porn site, and ‘winning’ arguments in your head is something that shows balls? Man you a class-A bitch.

          Listen up taylor boy. The reason nobody bothered to reply seriously to your bitching scared-ass grabbing for reaction masturbatory teenage angst moaning is because you got that mouth running faster than your legs and fists. You bitch about logic and balls, then think signing into an account on a porn site to respond to your bitching shows ‘balls’. Your idea of ‘balls’ is pretty cowardly seeing as you don’t actually have the balls to talk about this with someone here in real situations.

          Your ‘logic’ sounds more like squealing shit coming from a barely intelligent 15 something kid with too much time now that school’s out. All that shit about idols, 2d ‘girls’, etc are all subjective bitching which you then retreat to cop outs and sniveling one-liners if you don’t get your way and someone points out obvious flaws in your ‘logic’. Why don’t you respond to any of the comments that left you unable to respond? No, just more bitching and moaning.

          You sound like the one running scared constantly coming back here trying to drag up that sagging and pathetic mouth teenage attitude which you have no way to backing up unless you hide behind that account name. If you can’t help yourself that bad, then put up your shit here and ask somebody to meet up with your teenage ass and discuss exactly why you can’t keep your mouth in a leash.

          Funny you keep bitching and moaning like a scared little bitch sensitive about propping yourself up but don’t have the balls to take it to where it counts.

          My comments get hidden but the replies are always anon who cannot vote, so I then conclude there are a lot of scared bitches out there too afraid and or dumb to speak up against me in fear I will make them look stupid if they sign into their account and they want to avoid that at all costs. A wise yet cowardly choice. That and also shuubi with her 32 accounts. All these anons asking me “do I even lift” just get ignored. Thats not what they’re really saying they’re talking about my balls from what I gather by skimming passed. You’re wasting your own time anons if you’re that desperate for my attention and you want the honor of me replying to you calling me ‘weak ass’ in 17 different posts is like a dog barking at the moon. If you want me to acknowledge you’re existence counter my points with logic and say something intelligent if you have the ability which I doubt you have otherwise you wouldn’t be forced to talk about my balls. Lol.

    • Let me educate you on the difference between an idol and a celebrity.

      Everything you said is true for your average celebrity.
      But an IDOL is different. In Japans long history of worshiping various idols like statues and trees, it has come to the current day practice of idols being cute girls.
      An idol is supposed to be different from a celebrity in ways like she lives for the people in the way a local shrine deity does. Her ways are not earthly ways so she has no interest in marriage to any only else other than her fans. I don’t disagree with what this guy did although the crobar was a little too far. But that’s what these girls sign up for, they know what they’re getting into don’t have sympathy for them especially since events like this only rise their fame and alot of times are staged. (Especially for a girl who got married and had fans abandon her for someone younger and needs a fame boost, ever think of that?.) They know part of their marketing is their single marital status and virginity. But alas because they are not gods and are just useless women what ends up happening is they exploit their fans for as long as they can making as much money and fame as possible, trying to be as cute as possible, competing and looking down on as many other girls as possible, then once they reach stability they abandon the happiness of their fanbase for their own selfish desires after they have milked their opportunity dry and sucked dry all they could out of their fame and fans then they ditch them for just one guy who they can then leach off for the remainder of their lives in case their own money runs out or so they can live off his and horder their own. Then they depend on you people who don’t understand the system of Idolatry to support them by saying the exact things you are saying now. “Why can’t they live normal lives! Otaku are so creepy!” They grim knowing they just duped you and thus these women win again and live happily ever after, better lives than you. This is the nature of women.
      Women are mosquitos, if they get too close smack em or you’ll be sucked dry and not in the good way.
      Or use bug spray because a lot of them liked to be smacked around. Don’t smack too hard or she’ll say you raped her and off to jail you go.

        This doesn’t mean that the creepy part of idol culture doesn’t get widely criticized in Japan. What we see is only a shallow part of the industry kept alive by the extreme fans who are not the majority but buy the majority of the merchandise, and the by no means represent the way of thinking of the majority of Japan.

        Even if that way of thinking exists, it doesn’t make it extremely flawed and completely pathetic. They are trying to sell the images of humans with basic needs of love and sex and creating a culture where people are stupid enough to believe idols are what the smiley, always agreeable and inoffensive generic bitches they are portrayed as in the media. How are the fans at fault for creating and worshiping something so shallow and unrealistic I’d rather like someone for more genuine and realistic values because then I’m actually liking something real.

        Also, Rie is a voice actress, they don’t have to sign creepy idol contracts like music groups do to swear their chastity. I’m sure she was aware of the risks getting married and took a huge plunge because she wanted to be true to herself, anyone who really supports her for who she is is still with her and all who don’t are creepy otakus who will not be missed. Big deal.

          …wait “Voice actresses started the creepy otaku idol followings” even though modern idol worshiping in japan started as early as the 60’s and seiyuu worshiping is a later phenomenon..ok?
          It still doesn’t change how heavily loathed and criticized idol culture is in Japan.

          How are the fans not as guilty as the idol for buying into this completely idiotic and unrealistic fantasy where humans won’t get married for the wishes of people who will never accept them for who they really are anyways. If anyone is guilty of exploiting, it is the fans and the production companies for setting up impossible and anti-human standards where it is impossible to be yourself and be famous.

          Rie made money when she was on top idol status, and naturally took the fall when she married and knew fully well. She didn’t do anything sinister to exploit? If she tried to lie and hide the fact it would be a different story.

          Rie Tanaka is not one of those ‘idol seiyuu’ in the first place. She’s basically a veteran at this point; not to mention she’s about 33 now. 21 is too old by idol-otaku standards. Dont try to apply your ‘bla bla stupid idols ask for this’ logic to her. She’s a talented actress who happens to have a lot of fans, she didnt ask for the nutjob ones and doesnt pander to them either.

        • There are voice actresses and there are Idols. Theres still a big difference. With or without that kind of contract that may or may not have those details neither of us know, which go without saying even if it isn’t written they again know what they are signing up for, Rie promotes herself in the same popular idol way as other idols, is there a need for ‘just a voice actress’ to do this http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m5tdlo8uwA1rxfouco1_1280.jpg not to mention shes also a idol-type singer. So cry me a river about beloved Rie and how shes different than Idols. Voice actresses started the creepy otaku idol followings you’re a fool if you think Rie didn’t have any exploitation in mind when signing up for this kind of work. Especially when you see the other work that she does .

With or without that kind of contract that may or may not have those details neither of us know, which go without saying even if it isn’t written they again know what they are signing up for, Rie promotes herself in the same popular idol way as other idols, is there a need for ‘just a voice actress’ to do this http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m5tdlo8uwA1rxfouco1_1280.jpg not to mention shes also a idol-type singer. So cry me a river about beloved Rie and how shes different than Idols. Voice actresses started the creepy otaku idol followings you’re a fool if you think Rie didn’t have any exploitation in mind when signing up for this kind of work. Especially when you see the other work that she does.

    Here’s the sad truth, Japanese. Those women would NOT fuck with you anyway.

    Money isn’t so much of an issue, bor is your hobby. The problem is your society. It isn’t made for a healthy love life. It isn’t made for a healthy life even.

    That is your problem. You keep voting for the retards and you keep sticking your heads in your asses instead of trying to change things. Money isn’t everything. Why do you think there are so many maniac hikkis/escapists/neets? Because they are desperate to cling what freedom they can have.

    Ask the well-paid salaryman if he truly feels alive after 18 hours of work per day. Ask his wife if she’s truly alive by parasiting off his money while never even seeing him at all. Adultery, fetishism, divorce, suicide, bitterness. that’s what’s waiting for you folks.

        You on the other hand? Who are you and what do you have to say? Nothing in both cases. where’s your comment to the topic? Where’s your thought on anything other than what others are brave enough to say?

          I think you missed the point of being anonymous. A person’s words should stand on their own. They do not need to have an image attached to them.

          Furthermore, by speaking out against a problem, even if only on the net it shows a person is of sounder mind than the ones involved in messes like this. For example, saying “I don’t smoke” doesn’t make you a pacifist who thinks lung cancer is fine and dandy. It makes you a person who chooses not to be part of the problem.

      • They are pretty much the same thing with few exceptions. Idols a lot of the time are just girls with little or no talent but because they are kawaii they are put on a pedestal and idolized because being cute in Japan is serious fucking business and can determine the outcome of your entire life. Many people blame declining Japanese birth rate on this or that but I say its because men are subject to this society where everything is fucking kawaii so they ass kiss this shit out of cute girls instead of towering over them like spartans as nature intended and they turn into little bitches which lowers testosterone levels till they eventually become like the men here on sankaku: http://is.sankakucomplex.com/data/07/35/07358494f818673f534ec2a57be5ef2e.gif

        But onto your question.

        In Japan they believe in many Gods, different gods for different purposes. History of tradition over the years and this belief has poured into their pop culture and so cute girls who do this or that, sing, voice act, whatever are not mere celebrities nono they are considered Idols. Objects of affection and worship no different to pagan idolatry. They basically made Gods out of these women (sometimes males but not nearly as often as men are out there running the world instead) so the fanaticism is beyond what you would get with fans of regular celebrities, they are more like extreme fans because the idea is that these girls are not mere celebrities they are idols (gods) so they render a higher more intense level of attention and adoration. Now they don’t pray or bow to these idols or anything, well technically they do bow, but minus that they do everything else that you would in worshiping and supporting a god. So idols get a cult like religions like following where fans do all kinds of ridiculous shit and spend tons of money (which is funny because then they mock traditional religions ha). And of course because its women were talking about they willingly and happily subject themselves to this adoration because attention to a woman is like shoes to a woman is like money to a woman is like opportunism to a woman is like not getting a job and living off a man is to a woman you get the idea. So being a Idol gives women the opportunity to attention whore and make other women jealous which is the greatest gift you can give to a girl. Because they are not celebrities but something greater they are held to greater standards like not marrying and being a virgin because this is what Japanese society says is ‘pure’ and admirable and even holy. I always say even if you’re not religious, everyone has a God whether they like to or not. Idols sell a dream of purity to their worshipers so they can’t do anything considered dirty like have sex or be in relationships as this is not the behavior of a Idol (god). This is just the culture of Japan and the way they do things. Aya Hirano had sex with a guy but I still love her as a fan and won’t turn my back on her for that because I am normal and don’t worship women.

  • >_> WTF!? Is it a crime for someone to have a life? Because really, some of these Otaku are bat-shit insane. Instead of them constantly sucking up the fumes of 2D making their minds completely distorted, they should go out into the world and find meaning in their lives. Or they can all go to hell.

      can’t agree more with you, anon.

      ‘b-b-but i’m a very avid fan of anime, manga and games and japan-related stuffs-desu! i’m proud to be an otaku!!’

      said a kid in some other country.

      remember kids, the term otaku is originally used as an insult in its country of origin. if you truly like japan so much, why not take the actual meaning of the term and stop calling yourselves otaku, unless you take pride in putting titular insult on yourself.

      • Um.

        Why should westerners or even Japanese give a fuck about a derogatory term used against them by people who don’t share their interest? If people turn the term around and give it a positive meaning isn’t that good because its a positive thing and positive things are good? Are you seriously trying to argue that people should accept carrying on a negative tone to the word that people who don’t give a shit about them or their interest gave it? Why the fuck should anyone care about what non Japanese otaku say and how they define a word. Just because they are Japanese we are to treat them as gods and respect their every opinion? No sorry if I want to call myself an otaku because I like anime and manga then Im going to call myself an otaku and I could give a FUCK what Japanese people think about it and that applies if Im from another country or if Im from Japan. Hey buddy grow some balls and stop letting people bitch slap you around and tell you how to think. 🙂

  • Just keep a couple of sharpshooters armed with dart guns on hand at these events. Tranq the nutjobs and watch them stagger and topple off the stage into a heap on the floor and just get on with the show. Don’t ruin it for the rest simply because of the 5… I mean 10…. no, better make that 20 percent who are totally, creepily obsessed.

      This whole ‘Seiyuu as idol’ stuff is just how their media culture works. Not just in Japan, but in some other countries as well, they take their entertainers in high regard, often idolizing them. Can’t say I don’t understand how you feel anon, I also hail from a country that take entertainers simply as a slightly higher level commoner; I’m also boggled with stuffs like ‘idols’ at first.

      Ever seen those busybody housewives, poking around their neighbors’ privacy? Well some otaku, or should I say, some people just loved to know people’s personal affair to the point it can be considered as a mental illness. Especially if it’s someone they idolized or someone popular.

      Celebrity worship is nothing even remotely exclusive to Japan; the west is at least as insane in obsessing over the non-consequential details of the lives of the rich and famous, if not more. I mean, over here we have TMZ. It doesn’t get much worse than that.

      I’m a big fan of a lot of seiyuu myself, but my interests extend to their professional abilities and nothing more. Sadly, it’s almost like a lot of people feel like they have some kind of personal connection with performers; like they somehow, “know”, them based on their limited experience with their professional works. And then you get the ones who feel they have the right to tell them who they can and can’t hang out with and how they’re supposed to live their lives.

      tl;dr
      People are fucking insane.

      Their system is different than yours. Thinking from the view of your system, yes they sound ridiculous but in their way of thinking, idolizing is something commonly normal.

      Otaku-ism, can safely be considered as a case of obsession with varying degree, depending on where and what environment the said ‘otaku’ is in. In Japan, the term otaku is used to coin an individual with an extreme obsession, to a creepy extent, be it to anime, weaponries, occult stuffs, etc etc hence there the term ‘otaku’ is taken partly as insult.

      In some other countries, the term otaku usually is used for those who think someone, or themselves as a highly-regarded J-anime/manga/games fan, worthy of the title ‘otaku’ in which the term is regarded as a ‘medal of honor’ of some sort.
