Evolution of The Otaku Room

What does your room look like? SankakuComplex has posted a series of three interesting scans from Newtype magazine show how the otaku room has evolved with times from 1985 till 1995 and then finally the modern day otaku.

So has your room managed to continually evolve over time? Or has it been stuck in a particular era?

    The body hug pillow is clearly contemporary otaku, but there’s not nearly enough K-On figures!

    hmmm maybe I am not true otaku my room resembles non of those, but then again I am a girl so perhaps that has something to do with it.

    Oh interesting drawings indeed. I had an otaku room when I was 13-15 but I’m always changing it. Now I’m trying to do a more fairy-kei type room^^

    I think the 90s room is the most interesting one, with the SNES, SEGA Saturn and Laserdisc Player :)
    The contemporary otaku room is clean and organized but there is too many hug pillows and moe-merchandise…A combination of the contemporary and 90s room would be most ideal~
