Anime with Otaku Jokes?

Well, I just finished watching Lucky Star. And I really liked that it had Otaku jokes in it, ones that I could actually understand!

Do you guys know of another anime such as this one?

I've asked around a little, and a lot of people say Ouran, but I've already seen it!

Hayate the Combat Bulter. It references so many anime series, it will make your head spin. I don't even claim to get 1/2 of them, but the ones I do are really humerous. Sometimes it is obvious, but other times its a tiny bit, you really have to pay attention to catch at all.

Kannagi is loaded with otaku humor, including LS references (I won't get into the whole drama with the director, but the connection is well-documented). Very funny and very otaku-centric.

Well Idk much about Otaku Humor/Parody oriented show to be honest I never really enjoyed them(feels like a forced gag) but theres a few Otaku themed shows if thats at least near enough of what you wanted
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu : The Otaku theme is present BUT it is still romantic comedy so its not ALWAYS about the Otaku Lifestyle.

Genshiken: Is all Otaku, it does have romance,drama and all that but its mostly a comedy around the lives of Otakus from hardcore to cosplayers.

Welcome to NHK Touches on a lot of topics in the Otaku lifystyle mostly because of the NEET issue, but its not really a main theme but you can still apreciate it.

Genshiken and Welcome to the NHK for above reasons.
FLCL parodies the anime industry a lot.
Chaos; Head is kind of NHK crossed with Higurashi.
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu - that's about a very rich girl who is ironically a very hardcore otaku.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei perhaps, if you haven't already seen it. There tend to be lots of references to Japanese (otaku) pop culture (and Japanese culture in general; often rather obscure to the Western viewer, so be warned).
