    Definition off Wikipedia:

    Otaku (オタク) is a Japanese term used to refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime, manga, and video games. Female otaku are occasionally referred to as fujoshi.

    In modern Japanese slang, the term otaku refers to a FAN of any particular theme, topic, or hobby. Common uses are anime otaku (a fan of anime), cosplay otaku and manga otaku (a fan of Japanese comic books), pasokon otaku (personal computer geeks), gēmu otaku (playing video games), and wota (pronounced 'ota', previously referred to as "idol otaku") that are extreme fans of idols, heavily promoted singing girls. There are also tetsudō otaku or denshamania (railfans) or gunji otaku (military geeks).

    so this doesnt just mean full on anime okay, lol

    Oh, you mean something like a fan geek or geeky fanboy.

    No. I've recently read a trope about this, and no.

    Well I do really like college and NFL football but this seems to be more geared towards gaming.

    There are a few games I really like such as Quake II, but to be an "Otaku" it seems like a bit more....

    if your obsessed w/ the military you can be an otaku. I'm pretty sure there is 1 for football. ill research it =p

    edit: more toward dressing/joining military. so if you wear a jersey or your one of the guys who goes shirtless and paints 1 letter of the name of your team you are supporting every time there's a game on, ya might wanna watch yourself =p

    ya never know. definitions are flexible for a lot of things.

    I also don't think I have an Otaku of anything. I have several interests, but not 1 that I'm (almost) obsessed with.
