Video: True Otaku

True Otaku: The Documentary was produced in 2010 & 2011. During its festival run, True Otaku was exhibited as an official selection at Florida Supercon's 2011 Geek Film Festival and at Phoenix Comicon's 2012 Film Festival. The film is being released here on YouTube in its entirety in three parts.

Part one of the movie introduces viewers to the world of Japanese pop-culture and its American fanbase. Terms like otaku, cosplay, anime, manga, and lolita fashion are defined. Viewers also learn about many of the things one can see and do at a convention. This section of the documentary largely focuses on Otakon, a convention held in Baltimore, Maryland.
