About Otaku No Video DVD

Otaku No Video is Gainax having a good deal of fun at their own expense. It details a "fictional" company and its meteoric rise intercut with pseudo interviews. It's way more fun than it has any right to be, and at other times, almost touching. A great film for anyone who's stayed up all night watching films they can't understand.

Special Features: Otaku no Video 1982, More Otaku no Video 1985, Updated Liner Notes, Original Trailer, plus - Previously Unreleased

Who doesn't want to be Otaking!

by -

This is very entertaining and self aware of Otaku culture and a snapshot of the late eighties and early nineties. The anime portion follows an average high school tennis player who becomes enamored with anime and it changes his life leading him through some very interesting highs and lows. This is segmented between live action interviews with Otaku of various hobbies highlighting little positive and mostly negative aspects of pursuing a hobby or interest to the detriment of everything else. An early production from studio Gainax that is a must watch if your going to be an anime buff.

Required viewing for more-than-casual fans

by -

A self-parodying celebration of otaku; a look in the mirror that is not always pleasant but is lovingly done. The animation segments are beautiful. It's perhaps analogous to Spinal Tap in rock and metal culture. Casual fans may not appreciate it, except as a curiosity, in which case it's appeal may be considerable. However, for deeper fans, it is something to cherish and return to.

Gainax is a band of crazy wizards. This is their story


Do you know Gainax? Do you want to watch the rough history of Gainax in a goofy parody documentary format? Featuring everything from Macross and Nausicaa to Nadia and some "Gurren Lagann is really Gunbuster 3" foreshadowing, this is amazing. Yes, everyone that compares it to This is Spinal Tap is pretty much correct. If you want that, but about anime, figures, manga and more, this is your movie.

As an added bonus, if you manage this without getting lost, FLCL's crazy self-aware commentary becomes easier to digest.
