Anime Otaku Test

Old article related to otaku test:

Japan was having first national otaku test in 2005. There are many categories for Otaku such as Railroad (tetsu) or Military (gunji), but for the first one, the problems were focused on Akiba style such as Doujin, Game, Anime, Comic Market (anime convention and likes). Its editorial department says “Otaku has become one of the culture that Japan can proud of. We can say new century is Otaku’s era. We decided to hold this exam to raise Otaku Elites who possess correct and beautiful Otaku knowledge.” The test were written in “postgraduate”-level japanese.

Whoever passed the exam received a certificate which grant them recognition as experts in the field of “otaku”.

To see sample question (in English of course) go to this site.
