Anime Description: Otaku no Video

Otaku no Video is about Ken Kubo, your average guy with a great girlfriend, until he reunites with Tanaka, one of his old friends from High School. Inviting Ken to his circle of anime otaku friends, Ken decides to become the Otaking. (The King of all anime otaku!) From them on he sinks deep into the world of anime, even to the point of creating one himself! And that's only the beginning....

Honestly, Otaku no Video is really about anime otaku (a lot like Genshiken) and the craze surrounding it. It also serves as a historical archive of the history of Gainax (Gunbuster, Evangelion).
