It's not really that Taboo

First off yes, we know how some people view this word and the stigma attached to it. "Otaku" has the same irreverence attached to it that the term "nerd" did no more than 30 years ago in the U.S.

However Otaku isn't a term used in good humor in Japan, so why use it? Well, that's simple; it's used as a term representing someone who is knowledgeable or a fan of something specific. There is no difference in being a computer otaku or a computer nerd and, in all respects, it is the same term.
So in light, we don't see it as a term of disrespect but a term of endearment!

As the convention and anime culture has grown in the U.S., so has the way we have expressed ourselves. We are no longer a stay-at-home group and more Otaku, or fans, have eagerly assembled with those like them. We respect what the word means in Japan, however we still choose to use it as part of our name.
With the above said, we are a group of fans and vendors who want to pull together an amazing event. We believe our location and unique events will help everyone who attends the convention to find no end of things to do. This is a convention designed with specifics in mind such as Anime, Gaming,  Japanese and Korean Music, and more. We can't wait to reveal all the exciting things we have planned as this next year progresses. If you have any questions please contact us.

Thank you for joining  us for Otaku-Matsuri year one!
