Wotakoi: Love Is Hard For Christian Otaku | Beneath The Tangles

Wotakoi: Love Is Hard For Christian Otaku | Beneath The Tangles *Full Post*

While Amazon Prime doesn’t often have new anime that interest me, a couple have come along lately. The only one that blew my mind was Made in Abyss, which I regrettably have yet to write about. The other one that I enjoyed was Wotakoi: Love Is Hard For Otaku, which is about the intricacies of two people at work who are otakus. It’s a reality I’ve never seen displayed in an anime and I found it pretty cool and funny! The references to the various anime, video games, and other nuances of otaku/geek culture were great. I suppose the fact that otaku culture not mentioned in media very often makes me smile when it finally is.

Being an otaku or geek can be a little lonely at times, as there aren’t many outlets to talk about what we are watching, playing, or getting excited about. Yes, there are Discord, conventions, and online communities like Facebook or forums, but at least for myself, it’s been a side of me that I don’t openly discuss at work, church, or in large gatherings. I am extroverted and love to talk and hang out with friends, but bringing up the latest anime episode or the free game I got on PS Plus isn’t the greatest topic of conversation.
