Amusing Article on Otaku

The Japan Times has a somewhat-stupid-but-amusing-nonetheless article about the life of an otaku and the ones who love them. It focuses on a girl named Yoshika who is a mild otaku compared to her husband. The conclusion?

Yoshika says her decision to marry had much to do with the fact that in modern Japan, it's hard to find a man who's NOT an otaku in one way or another. "Otakuga iyada nante yuttara kekkon dekinai shi, otaku wa uwaki shinai kara ne (if one refused to marry an otaku, one can't get married and besides, otaku will never have affairs with other women)."
