Are You a YAPPIE?
“This booklet, published along with the August 1984 issue of The Anime magazine, is a fascinating reminder that we didn’t always have a pithy term to describe Japan’s legions of anime-obsessed young adults. Although the now commonplace “otaku” made its official debut the year before in a column by Akio Nakamori, it wouldn’t become widely used until the end of the decade, and then mainly as an epithet. In the meantime, The Anime produced this pamphlet in an attempt to hang a name on a growing subculture that undoubtedly included a large segment of its readership. The word they chose was “Yappie,” a contraction of “Young Anime People.”
