Otasā no Hime (オタサーの姫 – “Princess in a Nerds’ Club”)

  • Otasā no Hime


    Yesterday, I introduced you to the term ‘kou itten‘ (紅一点), which means a woman among many men.

    Today, I would like to introduce the slang term ‘otasā no hime‘ (オタサーの姫), which has a similar meaning to it.

    Otasā‘ (オタサー) is short for ‘otaku no sākuru‘ (オタクのサークル – literally “nerds’ club”), and ‘hime‘ (姫) means “princess.”
    「オタサー」は大学等における「オタクのサークル」の略、姫は “princess” を意味します。

    This term is used when referring to one or a few female members belonging to a liberal-arts-oriented club that is composed mainly of men (especially nerds).

    Since male members in such clubs often treat a few female members as “princess,” they has come to be called ‘otasā no hime.’
