Otaku Earrings

Otaku is Japanese for Nerd. In Japanese culture it has the same (or very similar) connotations that nerd did here 40 years ago. However since we have embraced our nerd power it is used to describe someone that is an Anime and/or Manga nerd. A title we are PROUD of and wave our nerd flag high.

For those who care: Otaku is derived from a Japanese term for another person's house or family. In this usage, its literal translation is "you".  Basically they are inferring you spend all your time indoors. And generally means someone that is obsessed with the internet, games, anime, videos, or some other non-mainstream hobby.  I have been told by several of my customers who are Japanese American that the spelling is different and there is a very slight pronunciation difference, but we really should not worry about it because if we use the world (and I mean Americans here) everyone will know we mean nerd.  That is it less negative now than it was say 5 years ago and that if you want to identify as an Otaku that it's all good and it brings them joy (though to be fair all these customers I met at Con's.. so there is that to take into consideration).  If you would like a more definite well definition of the word check out Wikipedia, I did for the first 2 sentences of this paragraph.
