For otaku's by otaku'sDescriptionWelcome to Otaku-Haven, lets get started shall we?
O-ta-ku / ō’täko͞o : [Noun]: Japanese term used to refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime, manga, or video games.
Ha•ven / ˈhāvən: [Noun]: A place of refuge or sanctuary
We are a not-for-profit group organization composed of people ranging from experts in the fields of science, business, music and art; to college students studying within their own respective fields; to high school student just starting to out. We have banded together to accomplish three goals:
1) To create a location created for and operated by otaku’s, designed to support and share everyone’s attained knowledge base, skills, and understanding.
2) To provide a starting platform for all starting or up-and-coming individuals within the fields of art, music, science and etc. in order to foster creative and innovative thinking within the local community.
3) To support local communities and business’ through the development and creation of interconnected business relationships
Our group is founded on these core principles that guide our efforts. 1) share and teach what you know and love, 2) learn for sake of learning and understanding, 3) help the community, help the world, 4) start small, support locally, 5) creative, innovative, alternative and eco-friendly 6) respect for diversity.
Why are we doing this?
We’re doing this because:
1) We love anime, manga, video games, comics and all things people think are nerdy and geeky. These are the things that we grew up with and have deeply influenced our lives. We want to create a place in which we can all physically teach, share and celebrate what we all know and love with everyone.
2) Times are tough and has made it much harder for any local business to remain in business. We need to help our community by assisting and supporting local business’ that many of us know and love by creating a place in which many of these places that are complementary to each other may continually grow .
