It’s easy to take the fan world of the otaku for granted today. The medium of anime—once obscure—has become nearly mainstream in terms of public awareness and acceptability. The modern otaku doesn’t have to worry about the experiences or the anime of old. What kinds of shows do those old guys watch anyway? What makes a true otaku? Drop by for a presentation on the history of the fandom, a talk on the different generations involved, and enjoy an investigation into the origins of the Otakudom you enjoy today.
