With the very delicious release of Otaku no Video having made its way into fans hands as part of the elaborate and engaging Kickstarter that AnimEigo ran a few years ago, it also shifted back in 2016 to regular home video releases and some streaming. That now has the folks at RetroCrush bringing out a new clip from it where we get this six-minute piece that shows off some cosplay time and some live-action material.
Plot concept: Somewhat based on the real story of how Gainax was founded, Otaku no Video addresses all aspects of an otaku lifestyle. Ken Kubo is a young man living an average life until he is dragged into a group of otaku. Slowly, he becomes more like them until he decides to abandon his former life to become king of otaku —the otaking!
Mixed in are live-action interviews with real otaku, addressing every aspect of hardcore otaku life. Not only are anime and manga fans included, but also sci-fi fans, military fans, and other groups of Japanese geeks.
