Otakukin are pretty much like otherkin but instead of believing that they're reincarnations of elves or dragons, they believe they're creatures from the movie Avatar or from asperchu comics. Otakukin are universally despised and shat upon by Otherkin who consider them to be delusional people who make otherkin look bad.
Okay, but what's the difference between otherkin and otakukin? Otherkin, for instance, believe they're elves, but the specific style of elves found in modern fantasy elves, which all came from the version of elves that Tolkien made up for Lord of the Rings and his version is completely different from folklore and original mythology. Same with otherkin who claim to be European dragons, the modern pop culture image of European dragons is completely different from the image it had been previously. Also for thousands of years, faeries were basically demons that people feared and did human sacrifice to and people only called them "the fair folk" because if they called them by an accurate description they feared their wrath, but then in the Victorian era people went Twilight on the image of faeries. And of course all otherkin faeries are based on the Victorian distortion of the mythology.
Okay, so again, in a nutshell, what's the diferent between otherkin and otakukin?
Yes, that's right.
Basically otherkin claim to be reincarnations of 20th century fantasy fiction whereas otakukin claim to be reincarnations of 21st century fantasy fiction. That's the only difference.

Otakukin is an internet fad and mental disease wherein the afflicted (most often obese, socially outcast basement-dwelling otakus) attempt to take control over their favorite anime and video game characters by claiming to be the direct, real world embodiments of said characters. While hated by otherkin, otakukin are more or less embraced by its cousins soulbonding and people pretending to have multiple personality disorder.
The phrase "Otakukin" was originally coined by Kinjou Ten, and is derived from the Japanese pejorative "otaku", meaning to indulge in surreal and poorly drawn children's media until you become chemically sterile and unfit to sustain life under the constraints of your swiftly accumulating bodily girth. The suffix, "kin", is hijacked from the word "Otherkin", a term that refers to yet another Asperger's fad that affects to delude its members into believing they're something other than a clearly defined failure at life.
However, despite Otakukin's close relationship to a subculture completely comprised of people that believe they're all reincarnated dragons, majestic white werewolves, elves, kitsune and other attractive icons completely of human origin, Otakukin is universally despised and shat upon by Otherkin, and is more or less embraced by its cousins soulbonding and people pretending to have multiple personality disorder.
Similar to what L. Ron Hubbard said about Space Opera, many otakukin believe that there is no such thing as "fiction"; when some some shit is made up, its creator is merely tapping into an alternate universe where the 'fiction' is a reality, thereby justifying their claims of reincarnation. It also makes them feel better about being uncreative fucks, seeing as the implication of this is that all creative people are just inter-dimensional psychic plagiarists whether they know it or not.
This also leads Otakukin to believe that sometimes writers or television show producers get the story wrong, namely when their character of choice dies and/or doesn't buttsecks everyone in sight, because they're the incarnation of the true soul of other peoples' characters so they would of course know best. Usually, otakukin choose Axel from Kingdom Hearts, two more characters from all 150 Final Fantasy games, alternate reality fanfiction sex stories based on Star Trek, and anime almost too stupid even for /b/.
Originally created by nina_anilina (also known as johbeckemi and akemileena) in an attempt to disassemble her malformed personality and be reborn into the regal form of a soul-mangling female android. Whether operating under the assumption that inserting enough banal anime-derived platitudes into her Schizophrenic transformation philosophy would cause her her flabby, penis-addled body to magically follow suit, or simply believing that she would be considered less insane if other idiots bought into her overly generous method of self-obnubilation, she soon realized that she could never escape the reality of her 98% genetic similarity to a bag of Cheetos, and forsook the community, placing it into the hands of the equally as batshit coeur_de_rien.
Even in her oblique insanity, nina_anilina later decried her involvement with the Otakukin subculture, acknowledging her decaying empire of lunacy as little more than a group of roleplayers who had gone over the edge. In spite of this, the community continued to engorge itself under coeur_de_rien's slovenly hand, she herself being the reincarnation of dozens of Inuyasha characters, a wolf, a psychopathic child-raping murderous wizard, and Sephiroth.
However, due to From_fiction's virginally close-knit structure, few overt lulz occurred here. It existed for the most part as a shallow haven for mentally disjunctive fangirls to expand on their autistic daydreams of being launched through their own psyche in a trans-dimensional crystal phallus.
In the beginning, NotSoFictional was a glorious Eden for Otakukin hidden in the dark depths of LiveJournal. It was a promised land, untouched by the hands of trolls. Unafraid of the scornful mirth of the unenlightened, the Otakukin gleefully went about their Otakukin business, such as bragging about how many souls of Bleach characters occupy their bodies, or fantasizing about having magic animu powers. It was a bit more active than From_Fiction, but the members still lived in perpetual paranoia.
One day, hoyvinglaven64, a prepubescent hermaphroditic Jew with Asperger's Syndrome that believes he is the reincarnation of Himura Kenshin (along with several other "confirmed" Otakukin identities, lulz), singularly caused the downfall of NotSoFictional. In an Aspie-riddled social meltdown, he attempted to vandalize the Otakin article to make it more flattering. Unfortunately for their stupid asses, his ineptitude brought the ED locusts to their doorstep, creating an abrupt end to their paradise. The few entries that remained public were swiftly locked, hidden within the deepest bowels of the Internet.
Days later, Rukia's prophecy was leaked (see next section). They had plenty of reason to freak out over it as it either meant someone was hacking their community, or worse, there was a mole. What they didn't know is that there were at least five infiltrators. In fact, some sources indicate that 99% of communities like these are populated by curious observers who just want to see what the hell is going on inside these insane "secret clubs", with only 1% actually believing this shit. Instead of responding rationally, and carefully investigating the leak, the Otakukin were so afraid of the slight possibility of being made fun of on the internets that they decided to go and delete fucking everything.
Members of the pathetic community reeled in confusion, and those who had not been on during the drama were completely lost. What had happened to their haven? Some of the wiser Otakukin expressed their disapproval of this move, while the more batshit ones screamed for blood. After plenty of flames and racial slurs were thrown things eventually settled, the Otakukin stopped throwing their hissy fits and moved on to a new community. While not search-able, the whereabouts of this "secret" community are easy to find if one is smarter than the average escapist asspie; however, security is tighter than ever.
Not much is known about this community, except that it is the obscure mecca to which the troubled otaku from NotSoFictional paraded in exodus after its downfall. While the likely blathering fucking insane content of this community remains mostly unsullied by the cruel gaze of judgment, it is theorized that it contains many entries whining about this article. According to some sources, it has become less active as of late, probably because the Otakukin will inevitably take their anal abrasions with them wherever they go, universally stymieing their minuscule potential for productive thoughts. The only time the community witnesses a decent amount of activity is when someone tries to start drama.
Like most cults, Otakukin are now getting worked up about an "Otakukin Armageddon". A time when they will shed their oily, fat ridden bodies and become beautiful animu characters who can kick the 2012 Apocalypse right back into Mayan legend.
From Fiction (Website)
From Fiction is a site which we will assume is the leading authority on filthy otaku who just had to take it to the next level and decide they're reincarnations of anime people. The website is run by overlord_mordax, a.k.a , a member of the Otakukin LiveJournal community and self-proclaimed reincarnation of Ken Ichijouji from Digimon.
—Denial isn't just a river in towelhead county.
—because the burden of proof isn't on the people who make the claim, apparently.
Notable (And Not So Notable) Otakukin
Neo and Trinity
Neo and Trinity are a pair of tubby, deluded lesbo Otakukin doomsday cultists that reside within the foul-smelling city of Tacoma, Washington. The duo made headlines on the Internets when they had abandoned their bewildering, haphazardly created brainwashing tool on campus grounds somewhere in Seattle, which prompted a call from the bomb squad to dispose of it.
The device, pictured to the left, was expertly crafted by the two batshit Matrix fangirls. Having been fashioned from stolen cardboard, Jell-O, and the sticky, palpable bilge of their own self-deluding end-times bullshit, it contained a gelatinous beating heart controlled by a crudely assembled device which was mistaken for an explosive by the Seattle bomb squad.
According to the "sermon" left by Neo at the crime scene, this crude parody of societal reformation was designed to force a collective awakening upon the ignorant and indistinguishable herds of Seattle and liberate them from their "prepackaged reality".
Neither lesbians were apprehended or charged for their crime. Even baroness of Otakukin lies, overlord_mordax, doesn't want to be associated with these people.
Read more about their insanity here, where Neo elaborates on...whatever the hell's supposed to be going on here. Beware of high school-level flash scripting and a writhing pile of dime-store intellectual blather.
Jen and Hojo
In the depths of some stupid furry's website there is a collection of first person accounts that weave a mind-boggling and lulzy yarn. Several people write of their encounters with two batshit bitches who used to run some shitty FF7 fansite, the stories often overlapping but still offering no clear picture of this insanity.
The gist of it is there's a crazy bitch who thinks she's Jenova from Final Fantasy VII, she's lesbians with another crazy bitch who thinks she's Hojo from FF7. The two of them went around contacting other FF7 fans, calling them by the names of FF7 characters and insisting they were part of the long lost group of real incarnations from the game's universe.
They got some of these people to visit them and got at least one or two to live with them for a time and mooched off them horribly before those individuals realized they were in a fucking cult and escaped. Jenova never bathes and thinks she has magic powers. With that in mind, here's some first-hand batshit:
The tards that were hoodwinked into living with these unwashed Otakukin psychopaths for up to several months at least now admit how retarded they were, but their faggotry is still unforgivable. However they should be praised for bringing this epic tale to the internets. Like most rapists, some individuals who were and continue to be in-the-goods with these otaku cultists claim that those who were involved with the aforementioned story deserved everything they got. (True).
The newest blister on the ass of insane otaku cultists everywhere, The Sarah Saga (see article for more details) chronicles some crapulous zoophile's experiences after inadvertently inviting a nutty whore named "Sarah" into his/her/it's shared household.
Appearing normal at first, Sarah claimed to have a job, from which she was swiftly "laid off" after moving in with her new hosts. Sarah's behavior became increasingly more bizarre, and it was soon discovered by her housemates that she believes she is a reincarnated character from the video game Suikoden and draws money from her brainwashed e-worshipers in order to "spread the news of her religion".
Instead of looking for a new job, she chose to leech off of her housemates, playing Suikoden on their TV every day for hours on end so that she could "get lost in her world", picketing their backyard barbecue, and letting her obese lesbian sycophants loaf around in their expensive antique house until they finally threw her ass out.
A handful of people who were new to the internet (though none more relevant than this keen-eyed cyber sleuth) jumped on the story, claiming that it couldn't possibly be true. Unfortunately, they were unaware that it is both an accurate portrayal of Otakukin behavior, and that historically there have been even worse examples of their idiocy than what this fag alleges to have experienced.
Thanks owed in part to a discovery made by the pathetic scopophiliacs at Something Awful, it is now believed that "Sarah" is in fact the "Aeris" from the FFVII House group mentioned above. More condemning evidence for the truth of this story arose when nina_anilina (now known as midnightteatime), the original begetter of the filthy otaku religion, appeared on the victimized furfag's "disclaimer" entry in hh_discuss bearing a profuse apology for her hand in the propagation of this retarded fad, claiming to have known "Sarah" before "Sarah's" bugfuck dementia had fully eclipsed her already asthenic perception of reality. Many lulz would have been had, if not for the fact that this tripe is so pitiful as to deserve a moment of relative silence.
One day, a 24 year old Otakukin cunt, Canadian failure and member of various Otakukin LJ communities known as decided that the best way to deal with the moles leaking info to ED was to try and join in the "lulz". Unlike some other Otakukin who tasked themselves with countering ED's article point by point and trying to exorcise the website using magick, her main method was simply calling attention to herself. Some ill-advised noob Dramatician decided to create this pitiful section about her and Sletia promptly appeared as Selbelis determined to add to the already mounting pile of unfunny and fail.
As typical basement dwelling Otakukin filth in every way, Sletia has a LJ filed with fangirl ramblings about her beloved Phibbrizzo (pronounced "Febreze") from some old anime nobody cares about, and a DeviantART account overflowing with tons of shitty fan art and doodles of dragons subpar by even tartlet standards. According to her she is one of two un-named and unseen servants of her chosen Otakukin guy, who are only mentioned in passing in the animu. That's right, Sletia is such a lulser that she decided to be an inconsequential slave even in her most wild, deranged fantasies. And of course, like most stupid fangirls she takes a murderous, evil villain and decides he's all squiggy iggy full of kawaii lurve.
—No...you're right. A normal, stable, well-adjusted, not insane fan certainly wouldn't do that.
"Blazey" as he likes to be called, believes himself to be the incarnate of the bipedal, purple, foul smelling furry creature known as "Blaze the Cat", an animal that is as full of fail as the Sonic video game series that spawned it. He is also an aeternalae. Which is a mix of Otakukin, Otherkin, and transsexualism in the worst way possible. And has a couple other identities. One isn't nearly enough for these guys. When he isn't rambling about anime or sick fetishes, he's sending mad props and worship to his "mother", Amy, who in all likely hood, is probably a 40 year old man with a neck beard.
Similar to the Otakukin complex in nature, Soulbonding is when a person believes that they can travel through psychic means or magic powers into fictional universes, and that one of the characters is their one true love. Invariably, they believe that they are married to or dating this character.
Soulbonders will rage if you even imply that the love of their life doesn't love them back. Ironic, considering that they themselves will attack one another for liking the same character. Many are quoted as saying that they are okay with other people being in love with the character, but hate it when other people claim to be married to them.
A very notable example of this is Sephirothslave. As per most examples of Soulbonders, her username contains the name of the character she thinks loves her as well as a synonym for wife. She seems to think that being on "the medical cocktail from hell" is a valid excuse as to why she totally isn't insane.
Another excellent example of this is Realmrsoptimusprime, who believes quite firmly that having a ceremony with a pillow makes her the wife of Optimus Prime, and ends every post with "Signing Out, Optimus Prime's Real And Only True Wife". She's been a recent source of drama on DevianTART, as she's known to rip off everything from fanart to published novels to fuel her love.
