A Japanese TV show followed a group of American Otakus around at the Anime Festival in Japan.

The video is kind of fun to watch. It shows American fans of Japanese anime and gadgets get all giggly exploring the anime show and shops in Akihabara. It is in Japanese, but still you get the main points.
I still have to visit Japan, so I am not in the place to make fun about it. I am not sure how I will react to the Japanese gadget nirvana. I do not think I can keep Bill Murray's cool he shows in Lost In Translation. Watch the video and get more details on TV In Japan. Via BoingBoing.

The term Otaku is already over 10 years old. We reported about it going global in 2005. Wikipedia has a definition otaku.
