This is Japanese 'OTAUKU' culture.
She is so beautiful !
---------------------------------------
What is 'OTAKU' Culture??
---------------------------------------
In English, otaku refers to a variety of geek or fanboy/fangirl obsessed with anime and manga.

While in Japanese the term otaku has negative connotations, in English the term is more flexible; some fans believe it has positive connotations, while other fans believe it has negative connotations. Japanophile is a word sometimes used to describe an otaku. Wapanese is a derogatory term that is sometimes used, while others feel many cultures have their own equivalents.

Currently the term otaku is often used as self-description by anime fans with a minute and detailed knowledge. They use it to rally those who have recently begun to watch anime or read manga, and encourage questions on shows and Japanese culture in general.

hmm.. nice to know 'bout me :)

for me, the word "otaku" has another (personal) meaning, that is:
living your life, your "hobbies" with all the passion you got.

though I'm also thrilled by good mangas, of course :)
