Another claim for the origin of the term comes from the works of science fiction author Motoko Arai, who used the word in her novels as a second-person pronoun and the readers adopted the term for themselves.

Those unable to succeed socially focused instead on their interests, often into adulthood, with their lifestyle centering on those interests, furthering the creation of the otaku subculture.

These individuals were drawn to anime, a counter-culture, with the release of hard science fiction works such as Mobile Suit Gundam.

The subculture's birth coincided with the anime boom, after the release of works such as Mobile Suit Gundam before it branched into Comic Market.

The definition of otaku subsequently became more complex, and numerous classifications of otaku emerged.

The 1989 "Otaku Murderer" case gave a negative connotation to the fandom from which it has not fully recovered.

The usage of "(interest) otaku", however, is used for teasing or self-deprecation, but the unqualified term remains negative.

Animators Haruhiko Mikimoto and Shōji Kawamori had used the term between themselves as an honorific second-person pronoun since the late 1970s.
