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.

For more explanation about otaku, refer to my post “Otakuology lesson by Shoko-tan

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.

The Writer – ron~

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.

My Nikon D40 accessories:

    Hi ron…long time no post…..wondering if we/you/or me can start an X-Edge PS3 Guide if there isnt 1 already….???

  21. ron~’s avatar

    haven’t bought x-edge yet, going to buy soon. Quite busy at the moment. There are like 4 games waiting for me to be finished >< (I haven't even finished my Tears to Tiara!!)

  22. kintaro’s avatar

    oooooooohhhhhhhhh is tears good??? ive been trying to increase my jap games……but hard to find good opinions

  23. ron~’s avatar

    Tears to Tiara is quite okay.. agarest senki is better, and I’m quite sure that x-edge is better than tears… (well etna alone is more than enough to beat Tears to Tiara haha)

  24. kintaro’s avatar

  34. Watson Waterstone’s avatar

    How would one distinguish between “ota deshou” and “ota desu yo”?

  35. ron~’s avatar

    @watson: desu yo is emphasizing, while deshou is either inviting or asking for confirmation.

    Nice to see another Australian otaku blog. I was wondering if you might like to exchange links for blogrolls? I’ll be adding you to mine regardless, but here’s mine if you’re interested:

    It’s not strictly otaku-based, but most entries end up that way regardless. I’m enjoying going through your entries and I hope you might enjoy checking some of mine out too!

    Keep up the good work. :]
