What the deuce does this mean? I tried researching it and I couldnt find anything on it. Ive heard it used in both positive and negative terms. I know this is a QQ type of thing but I dk where this kind of QQ would go too

I bring this up because a couple of my anime pages I subscribe to is blowing up my timeline with Otaku this and Otaku that

Otaku is the Japanese word for nerd. It's much more negative there than nerd is to us, but most non-Japanese fans of Japanese entertainment have taken to calling themselves Otaku, and it's usually not seen as negative in that context.
