Once upon a time the word "otaku" had a profoundly negative and derogatory meaning which was satirised, yet also compounded to a degree, in 1991 by Gainax's spoof Otaku no Video. In 2001 though, the release of the anime Comic Party heralded a new dawn in anime and manga, and otaku everywhere emerged blinking into the light of a new age. In this new world stories like Genshiken and NHK ni Youkoso! were huge mainstream successes, and lead characters who were thoroughly otaku stood tall in shows that had almost nothing to do with anime and manga (Nodame Cantabile and Hayate no Gotoku for example). read more
