Any objections to merging this one? The connection to furry seems somewhat strained. -- Sine 19:20, 7 July 2011 (EDT)

It would probably be better off merged with anime. Most Otherkin get pissed if you even bring up Otakukin--many consider them idealized weeaboos. Of course, I feel it should be its own article, but meh. Equivamptalk 23:00, 7 July 2011 (EDT)

I'd vote for merging it into Otherkin. Equivamp is right that a lot of otherkin don't like to hear mention of otakukin, but otakukin arose as part of the otherkin subculture and exist primarily as a phenomena within that subculture not something distinct from it. Even the site that coined the term, Temple of the Otakin by Kinjou Ten, is hosted on I don't see any justification for hiding that fact by merging it with Anime instead.
