On this episode, our original host trio of Ed, Kate, and Dennis go over the cult classic two episode OVA of Otaku no Video, an early Gainax release from 1991. Part fantastical history of Gainax, part parody of early 80s anime otaku culture, and a little bit of live-action mockumentary interviews with characters who maight be more famous than you think. This series delves into a lot: manga, anime, cosplay, doujin, model building, garage kits, ero-games, tapes, tape trading, animation cels, conventions, airsoft, turning fandom into business, and so much more. Are you ready to being the ultimate otaku, the Otaking?
