Otaku are a group of fans devoted to Japanese animation, graphic arts, couture, and other cultural products and activities. These groups regularly populate hundreds of conventions across the US and Canada each year that often exceed 25,000 in attendance. This group has been part of the American cultural landscape since the release of Astro Boy in 1963 and they’re still going strong today.

Topics can include, but are not limited to otaku groups, events, practices, and productions. Case studies are also welcome.
