Behave more like a captive mantis society consuming each other in an orgy of consumption. That is Otaku West, consuming the consumed.

Otaku specialist Makoto Fukuda wrote in the Daily Yomiuri, “There is a tradition in Japan’s otaku culture that even such things as trains or computer operating systems can be changed into cute characters in a way that turns inanimate subjects into characters meant to inspire a ‘moe’ response.” Herbivores.

Otaku describes a subculture of young, male geeks who lose themselves in a hermetic world of manga comic books and video games.”
