We've had a few questions about how otaku are seen in Japanese culture. Do otaku tend to be bullied? was closed fairly quickly. This question asks about how Japanese people see otaku. On the other hand, Is the term Otaku derogatory? was asked recently, and doesn't seem to be in any immediate danger of being closed. It asks about what connotations are associated with the term.
In my view both of these questions are fairly similar in that they are mostly about otaku (either the term or the people, but in a broad cultural context) and not anime. Perhaps on that basis, both of them should be closed. That would also seem to affect What kinds of activities can be found in a Manga/Anime Club?, though, which is highly upvoted and favorited. I'm not sure that question is on-topic either, despite writing the only answer to it, but it doesn't seem like anyone wants it closed at the moment.
What sorts of questions about otaku should we allow within our scope?
