Otaku, in English, is usually used to refer to an obsessive fan of anime/manga and/or Japanese culture generally, and to a lesser extent Japanese video games, but sometimes is used without the Japanese association -- "nerd" and "otaku" becoming exchangeable. American Otaku can sometimes come off as pretentious or arrogant because they think they know so much more about their chosen subject matter. They often cosplay at conventions, and spend vast amounts of money on anime related products rather than on food or personal hygiene. This particular Otaku sports some trendy goggles.
