Otaka is an 11-year-old Japanese-American girl with autism who's friends with Mega Man. She appears in Konnichiku's Mega Man anime universe.
Otaka usually wears a yellow sweater and denim jeans, though on occasion she wears a blue sweater and black pants or a green sweater and beige pants. She also sports black hi-tops, lilac socks, and dark red or light pink glasses. She has short brown hair swept behind her back.
Otaka is a brainy, quirky young girl who loves to help her father around his shop and code simple programs in C++. She's imaginative and always believes there's a solution to things. However, the things Otaka likes has gotten her bullied by other people. Otaka has learned to ignore these people and continue on with her life.
Otaka was born in Okinawa, Japan, as Danielle Otaka. Her parents, Kirsten Blackwood and Toru Otaka, were involved in the field of robotics. She was the second child they had, the first being Haku, the third being Ami, the fourth being Kenshiro, and the fifth being Samuel. Otaka and her family migrated to Tenma City in southern California when she was 2, so Toru could set up a robot parts shop there.
Over the years, Otaka met many people and lived a normal life. For example, in kindergarten, she wrote her own picture book. When she was 7, she tried to ride a bike; she scraped her knee while doing so. She has bad drawing skills since she's never drawn since she was 8. When she was 9, she learned how to code in BASIC.
Otaka was 11 when she was present at Rock Light's modification into Mega Man with her family (his battle armor was designed by her father), and she resolved to help the Blue Bomber out during his travels. Otaka has made close friends with a few of the Robot Masters too.
Mega Man and The Christmas That Almost Wasn't
Danielle is introduced as the youngest in the Otaka family, who provide new robotics to Light Labs. She idolizes Mega Man and tries to convince him to keep being a fighting robot. During Mega Man's view of the alternate future in which he was never converted into a fighting robot, Otaka is presumed dead as Wily has taken over the world.

Danielle is part of Mega Man's group along with her schoolmates Yuuta and Akane. She helps hack into security systems and other computers, as her programming has become way more advanced than when we last saw her.
