What is the meaning of otadesho? otadesho consists of two words: ota and desho. Ota is the short version of otaku (explanation on the next paragraph), and desho is something like “isn’t?” or “right?”. so the meaning of ota desho is, “otaku isn’t?” which then you can reply “ota desu” (similar with “yes, I’m otaku”, desu is word of confirmation).

Otaku is a loan word from Japanese which refer specifically to a fan of japanese anime and manga.

This Blog

This blog was made to express my otaku life. You won’t read anime review in this site (yet), but mostly you will find my personal thoughts regarding otaku related thingies (figurine, game, etc), anime merchandise that I purchase, or Otaku lifestyle (such as eating ramen!) related post.

I also have another nickname for forums (and also PSN ID), which is ronaldhw.

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I’m at my mid twenties and has a full time job as an IT professional. In my spare time, I play games (PC/PS2/PS3), and watch anime. I’ve been watching anime for more than 6 years, and reading manga for more than 10 years 🙂 so this kind of culture is my lifestyle.
