Otaku no Video comes from Gainax Studio, makers of Neon Genesis Evangelion and FLCL. It is part Live-Action mockumentary covering "otaku" or anime fanatic culture, and the animated story of two friends who start as fans and then rise to the top of the Anime world. Includes a bit of fan service, but that is to be expected. I first watched this in the late 90's, when Otaku culture was first blossoming here in the United States. Otaku no Video was a funny and inspiring validation of the reasons I liked anime, and it could be for any "otaku" as long as you don't take yourself too seriously. I would recommend this to anyone who likes anime, manga, or Japanese culture.
