Meaning of “Ofuse(お布施)”

This article was written over a year ago.

“Ofuse(お布施)” means using money to support own oshi as a slang. Many otaku people buy a lot of goods of their own oshi, it’s ofuse.
Usually “Ofuse(お布施)” means paying a monk money as a thank you. This word is for religion.
But as a slang, this word is for Otaku.
Why? In my opinion, for otaku their oshi is almost god.
