Nerd & Otaku Culture Expert
What is nerd and otaku culture and what does it mean to be an expert on such things?
The idea of the classic nerd: the stereotypical outcast with glasses has far been outmoded. Just as society itself, nerds and the things we like have evolved and changed into a dedicated niche and sub-culture with our own languages, unique communities, and social structures. And while anyone can join and participate in the culture, it really can take several years of being involved and participating in various communities to understand the world of those who dub themselves nerds, geeks, or otakus.
Nerd and Otaku culture to be put simply is just the community and social interactions that take place and surround the media that people who claim the title of nerd or otaku typically share and exchange amongst themselves. Nerd culture, in particular, is the community that surrounds American or western media such as Marvel/DC comics, cartoons from Europe, the U.S., Latin America, and Canada, or other major entertainment and pop-culture coming from the western hemisphere of the world. Otaku culture (as seen by the U.S.) is the community surrounding Japanese anime and manga and the culture swapping that ensues because of that.In more recent years, otaku culture has now has expanded to include eastern media from other countries such as South Korea and China, now introducing things like Korean pop, just known as K-pop, as well as manhwa and manhua; the Chinese and Korean equivalent to Japanese manga.
With all that being said, nerds probably now feel like an exclusive club where you have to pass some sort of understanding test just to break in, and that is absolutely not the case. A nerd is anyone who has a specialized interest in a specific topic. So that means if you are really into or know a lot about comics, video games, eastern media such as anime, manga, K-pop or k-dramas, cartoons, really whatever you really love, you're already a nerd right along with the rest of us. Even if you're are brand new to these concepts, if you have a love for nerdy things, you're already a part of the community!Furthermore, everything I've gone over and more, is why I am a nerd and otaku culture, expert. It's not just my extensive knowledge of the communities, the people, or the media we consume, but it's my love for everything we are. I am deeply passionate about nerd and otaku culture, and I have a desire to share and explore this community with anyone who wants in.
