In the larger anime world, Newtype is more associated with the magazine
that's about general anime, albeit a Gundam-friendly magazine. Besides,
if you want a catchy phrase, something that starts the sound "gun" or at
least "g" should be considered mandatory.
I would consider Guntaku even more insulting than Trekkies. It betray an
ignorance of the original meaning of otaku.
- Gundama (sounds like Gundamer and is similar to Gundamu the Japanese
pronounciation of Gundam)
- G-kid (somehow I can accept to be called a G-kid rather than G-boy)
- Wingnuts (no "gun" or "g" but "wing" is there and it's already in use)
To be spacenoid-friendly (and bending my own rule here), we can accept
Perhaps someone familiar with the Japanese scene may suggest something
that we can borrow from the Japanese too?
But than what's wrong with just plain old "Gundam fans"?
