The Psychopathology of the Otaku Of course, the otaku do exist in reality, and it is important to recognize that. The Comic Market, which I mentioned earlier, for example, is a space 26 . ” But one cannot say it is not reality. It is a world in which fan magazines produced by serious otaku can generate revenues in the millions of yen. It is, in other words, a space in which the ability to produce enjoyable ﬁctions is privileged above all else. And there we see on display only a small portion of the otaku’s ability to modify reality.
Is that what reality is? Since the Aum Shinrikyo¯ incident this kind of simplistic equation no longer holds. Raw, real experiences are the most deceptive of all. The mystical experiences and altered states of consciousness that Aum members experienced during their training have made us all too aware of the fundamental fallacy in the idea that “actual experiences” equal reality. So we ask again: What is reality? Indeed, it should go without saying that reality is itself a form of ﬁction. ” It is the ﬁction that is shared most widely.
And so on. So what is so strange about the “ﬁghting girls”? Aren’t they precisely the very symbol of Japanese polymorphous perversion? These giggly girls with their huge vacant eyes and abnormally small mouths, dressed in lingerie-like armor and outﬁtted with grotesque laser guns, have no subjecthood whatever beyond their enormous breasts. ” This is the real nature of Japanimation. Or so we are told. It is entirely possible to resolve the questions posed by the beautiful ﬁghting girl with explanations like these, but this approach amounts to little more than exhorting the Japanese to stop watching anime and grow up.
