In Japan: an otaku is someone without a social life whatsoever and is an insult of the highest regard. There is a negative stigma associated to the phrase otherwise that involves a Japanese murderer who killed women because "they didn't have smooth faces like women in anime."
In America: a badge of honor worn by fans of anime, in lieu of simply calling themselves anime fans. Overused slang that has lost its meaning to many fanboys and fangirls.
In Japan: "With the amount of pornography that man buys, it's no wonder they consider him a disgusting otaku."
In America: "Dude, I love Sailor Moon and Utena because they have lesbians in it. I'm such an otaku! ^___^"

The Anime Eletists or Anime Leet. People with years of "expirience" in anime-watching. To be an otaku, you must have at least 5 years of watching, 300 series & OAVs watched, more than half of them have to be subtitled or raw, you have to own at least 1 fansub, 1 ufo catcher doll, 1 doujinshi, 1 untranslated manga, 1 shitajiki, been to at least 1 con in full cosplay, one anime ost, knowledge of Japanese popular subcultures, a fleet of Japanese slang words, plus the ability to read katakana, hiragana, & instantly reccognize a few kanjis.
Someone who only watches dubbed anime on TV or borrows dubbs from their friends will never become Otaku.

Otakus have little to no tollerance for noobs, but will take one under their wing & teach them how to properly enjoy all Japan has to offer.

An anime fan is just a n00b, but an otaku is l33t. (noob/newbie) (leet/elite).

" Mervin, is way otaku!"
translation: "Mervin is a geeky, outcast to society and an embarassment to modern civilization!"
