#92 - Akihabara Geeks (2005)

March 31, 2020

In the first part of our new mini series on "otakumentaries," we review the 2005 documentary from NHK (and in the US by Anime Works/Media Blasters), Akihabara Geeks.

Akihabara Geeks follows a group of people through their daily life in Akihabara, Tokyo to examine the various types of fan cultures during that time period. If you'd like to check it out yourself, it's long out of print but easily stream-able on YouTube.

Thanks for listening and look out for more otakumentary reviews coming from us soon!

#91 - Azumanga Daioh

#91 - Azumanga Daioh

March 16, 2020

Andrew returns in his very first hosting role to discuss one of his and Tobias' favorite comedy anime of all time, the now-classic series Azumanga Daioh! Bill comes along for the ride to give the non-superfan perspective. They discuss the series' origins, its impact on anime fandom of the early 00's, how it holds up and doesn't hold up, and whether or not Yotsuba& deserves an anime (hint: yes).

Note that we are releasing this episode towards the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak across the United States. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe, healthy, and have peace of mind during this time of fear and uncertainty across the globe. We'll get through it!

It does appear that conventions are going to be hit pretty hard with conventions both in Japan and in the US being cancelled every day. Check out our recent blog post on what you can do to help those who rely on the convention circuit for their livelihoods.

Stay safe and stay healthy! Love to you all.
