Otaku Code v3.0 Generator

From the creator: “Otaku Code is a way for fans of anime and manga (usually called “otaku”) to convey their likes and dislkes in a condensed and difficult to read format.”.

My own code looks like:

*---OTAKU CODE V3.0---*
s+fsfp++ml*m$m++j!o+amccd+concosfic+art++vah++sf
*---OTAKU CODE V3.0---*

I originally encountered it on https://www.cjas.org/~leng/lspot030902.htm , dated 3/9/02. This site used version 1.0.

After some digging, I found a spec for version 3 of the code on https://tundra00.tripod.com/otaku.html , which also described the history of the otaku code. This site it dated 2004.

The form here is an encoder, but I am also working on created a decoder to go from code -> prefs.

The code is designed to also encode specific anime, manga, and game titles but I’ve left that part out. It can be added manually by adding an all-caps identifier and proper symbols. I may add it eventually, but for now that’s on you.

You can find the source code for the form in it’s own repo here: https://gitlab.com/patlabor/otaku-code


Subbed vs. Dubbed

The Sub vs. Dub debate has been raging since the beginning of time (well, at least since the beginning of Otaku). It has been fueled by things like the horrible DiC dub of Sailor Moon, the transformation of Cardcaptor Sakura into Cardcaptors, and then the wonderful dubs of Fruits Basket and Spirited Away.

Fansubs

Fansubs are a hazy issue. They're easy to get in New York City (sometimes for a ridiculous sum of money) or over the Internet. Fansubs are videos of anime that have not been released in the US, subtitled by fans for fans. In order to be as responsible as possible, you should pay either nothing for them or only enough for the video and you should buy the commercial release when it becomes available.

Digisubs

With P2P programs becoming popular, and Internet connections getting faster, more and more fansubbers began releasing their product in digital form. The major advantage to that is that is you don't have to pay a cent for the anime. The disadvantage is that you need a fast connection, unless you have friends who can download it for you. Digisubs used to be looked down upon, but recently their quality has gotten better--as good as videos and approaching that of DVDs.
