I could leave this blog post as just that and it would probably sum up my feelings pretty well but I suppose I should explain this to you guys.
America's Greatest Otaku, is an American TV show where they go around doing extremely anime-nerdy shit and instead of making the phrase Otaku more accepted as they are trying to do, "Otaku is not a derogatory word!" (they keep claiming), they are putting the word to shame with the kinds of people on the show.
Sure, people can cosplay and be really into anime if they want etc. But going on a TV show and acting extremely... Horrible... is just too far, and I blame the TV show not the people on it, do they have no shame?
Check out some of the horrors here:
"I've been studying Otaku culture since I was 8"
and the preview
It's a "shame" the actual show was removed from youtube, it's much worse, trust me.
Seriously considering dropping the title Otaku in my blog name now, I didn't think they would be this bad.
