Japan the big Jump from Traditional to Virtual World

Very far from the Japan traditions ( see my former note  here ) I would like to talk an other aspect of the Japaneese society.

In reaction to the very rigid rules and social pressure , a new type of young men,
the Otaku, has appeared at the opposite of the typical japaneese "salarymen".

The Otaku are obsessed with Mangas, Love Dolls,  figurines ,
Electronics and Animes.

Originally decribed as social misfits , Okatus are now firmly rooted in Japaneese culture. Several movies like " Densha Okoto (the train Man) or TV programs display their life and made them popular.

The Otakus refuse to become adults, they reject the hard reality of Japaneese Life  and escape  into the virtual world .

Most of this young generation , also decribed as parasite singles (hikikomori) , live by their parents up to 35 . They use to stay locked into their rooms for years. 

They are now running the streets searching to satisfy their fantasy addiction.

They are 15 millions individuals.Because of fear of being rejected or disliked, people turn to anime characters or idols that pose no personal conflict

In Tokyo , the famous Akihabara quarter, also called Akiba , is the temple of electronics and the Okatu s territory.

Otaku rarely have  Girlfriends ,

 but they are buying Dolls in Spare parts in dedicated shops, dress them and live with them.

Those nerds spend  3 Billions Euros for dolls and electronics every year. 

A huge business is blooming around those crazy shoppers.

Recently , numbers of bars and cafés for Otakus have opened with waitresses dressed as Lolita  Maids on every blocks.

What next are they going for ?

The Android female of course.

Japan is leading the research or artificial intelligence , Actroid Der the female receptionist is showing up in exhibitions.

Prototype of intelligents robots are under developments by numerous Japaneese firms.
