And what a great video it is....
21 February 1999 | by Miwa SatoshiSee all my reviews

A video made by otaku, for otaku, about otaku. This is what Gainax set out to do in 1991, and it not only succeeds, but is the funniest (yet hilariously true) view of the obsessive fanatic I have seen! Any seasoned fan of anime will be brought to a smile by the tongue-in-cheek look in the mirror that Gainax has produced. From the joys of cosplay and the endless nights of watching tapes...garage kits and the industry in-jokes...cel thieves, magical girls...it's all here, folks! And the fake live-action otaku interviews are simply priceless. Watch...and learn. Maybe someday you too will aspire to be...the Otaking.
