According to The Japan Times, a Japanese publisher, Biblos, is offering a geek exam that if passed, would certify you as an official Geek, or “Otaku”. They’ve set up a website for the exam: http://www.otaken.jp/
From the Article:
“The computer-scored test, which will be in a multiple-choice format, will be conducted by mail so anyone can apply, even from overseas. But the applicants must be able to get the question and answer forms and comprehend the “postgraduate”-level questions, which will be written in Japanese.”
The article also goes into a bit of the culture of the Japanese geek. Click those mechanical pencils boys and girls, let’s get ready to test our geek knowledge!
