Otaku, in general, is basically saying your overly obsessed with something that you have no life but focusing on that one thing (Which is usually anime, video games and manga). People in Japan use Otaku as an insult. In animes, characters usually use Otakus as a negative insult toward others as well.
In Highschool of the Dead Takagi constantly refers to Hirano as an “Otaku”.
For some reason Americans seem to think of it as a positive thing, where if you were to refer to yourself as an Otaku in Japan you’d get rather odd looks or laughed at. Granted, over the recent years the term has been gaining more of a positive outlook and people are now calling themselves Otaku, though many outisde the anime/manga/gaming circle see it as a negative term.
How Otakus are perceived in anime. (You could call them the bronys of Japan, I suppose that’d be the most similar kind of person to relate an Otaku to.)
A better example is to think of the word “Otaku” as “Nerd” or “dork” which again, like Otaku, used to be a very negative insult but nowadays some are proud to call themselves one. Though when someone refers to themselves as an Otaku many first thoughts is a person unable to relate to reality and their lives revolve around anime, basically a shut in who does nothing but watch anime and fantasizes about anime.
The term “Otaku” was popularized in the late 80’s - 90’s in America because an american magazine called Anime fans otakus. Not knowing the meaning behind it many started to call themselves this without knowing the proper meaning and now we have what we have today, people calling themselves Otakus.
While it was widely known as a negative term it really depends on how it is used. If you get called one, most likely they’re using it as an insult. Though if you call yourself one you’re most likely just saying you like anime etc. THOUGH, I highly suggest you do not call yourself one. Just call yourself a fan of anime.
