Otaku No VideoDVD
This comedy is a parody of Japanese animated films. Told in a faux-documentary fashion, a college student named Kobu catches up with Tanaka, a high school friend who is an otaku , an obsessive fan of Japanese animation. Tanaka converts Kobu to his bizarreworld, and the two are determined to become famous creators of anime, or Japanese animation. Their creation is Misty May, a cute and sexy character in a costume inspired by the Playboy Bunnies; she is a spoof of the genre's portrayal of women. Many otherconventions of the genre are parodied; those who are familiar with "Japanimation" will understand the many in-jokes.
