Examples

  • If you want authority, there was a post otou-san did that I once considered the last word on this series but the link is gone now so here's my thoughts to replace it until he reposts it.

    Anime Nano!

  • Everyone knows otou-san is actually ghostlightning, since ghostlightning is now otou-san!

    notdotq

  • Firstly, I must say screw you otou-san wherever you may be, this show is awesome.

    Anime Nano!

  • If you pressure authors to fish around for post hoc justifications for all their opinions, most of them will end up publishing incoherent crap like otou-san in his second Clannad Sucks post.

    Design daily news

  • It's also the reason I removed my limiter for a moment and gave otou-san both barrels-because his first attempt was terrible.

  • I never was much for the random word feature, but I tried it just now, just to see what I might come up with. After about twenty tries, I randomed my last name.

    I was inspired do this after seeing madmouth's comment directly after reading Eliot's "The Hollow Men".

  • my first reading is invariably 'Vani she done', a la "Mistah Kurtz, he dead"--even after a year on Wordie

    that is to say, it's not as undistinguished as all that

  • Having said that, in general I agree about the surfeit of usernames; for every EatChildren there's a clutch of undistinguished names like VanishedOne.

  • Like lampbane said; it's just that the examples are mainly pulled from Western anime sites.

  • It's father (+ honorific) in Japanese. I think it might also be written as otō, but my romanization skills are a bit fuzzy.

  • All the examples seem to show that this is a username, on one site or more, and has no other meaning. Perhaps it does in Japanese, who knows.
