Overview
A true treat for true fans of any genre, 'Otaku no Video' ("Fan's Video") is an outrageous "mockumentary" that combines the superb animation that made Gainax one of Japan's best-loved animation studios with truly strange interviews with "real fans". The result is a thinly fictionalized history of Gainax that segues into a truly strange SF adventure. Sit back and enjoy as a small band of Otaku (fans) set out to "Otakunize" the human race!
