MTV Otaku Week
Posted 1/10/09 , edited 1/10/09
What do you guys think about MTV2's Otaku week ~?

If you haven't checked it out on tv yet heres a link
http://www.mtv.com/videos/misc/329950/rock-lee-has-a-lot-of-attitude.jhtml#id=1602067


They covered 2008 Otakon Anime convention..
Alot of critics say MTV could have brought in a more diverse group of otaku "sophisticated collectors, people who write about anime and manga professionally, academics, creators" - but instead is all about "dissing the nerds". Exploiting fans in "convention mode".

Anime fans are upset that it portrays them "nerdtastic", which some people are taking personally, "in light of MTV's track record as champions of human dignity."

Others argue it Seems to be ultimately all in good fun, though. And is actually a "surprisingly non-judgmental look at a misunderstood bunch."

Any comments on your brothers and sisters ~? x) Or how mtv is showing anime fans ~? Can you relate ~?
My favorite is Max from pokemon..that guys awesome Lol I wana b his friend >> make sure 2 watch his vid hehe

i found out about otaku week on monday through my friend. i don't have a problem with the videos they air, but apparently a lot of people do... and i'm trying to figure out why.

on a side note, in honor of otaku week, i wore a few of my normal hair colord wigs and my kingdom hearts heartless neckless to work, but because i have to dress somewhat professionally (i'm a manager), that's as far as i can go without my boss going all anal on me saying "what you do on your own time should not be brought into the work place."

manage to watch some clips of this mtv otaku week ...

there are guys playing cards like those one's in yu-gi-oh , and some rock lee guy jumping around.. and etc..
but why do i feel mtv is somehow mocking those cosplayers or otaku's in that convention (dunno where though)

some forums discussed about how they hate MTV for that.. and i accidentally bumped into this thread where they want to nominate Kamina ( TTGL ) for MTV's most Badass movie star.. hate too laugh at it but i definitely vote for kamina myself lolz

idk. sometimes stuff like this really does give otaku a bad name. i usually see bad cosplays and feel sorry for myself and the person D> i don`t want to sound mean or anything, but i haven`t ever seen a decent cosplay done by non-Japanese people. it just makes us look ultra weird. especially DBZ and Naruto cosplays. they scare the hell out of me.
