"Otakus @ Home" What does the inside of an otaku’s room look like?

tokusyu_banner_.jpg

What does the inside of an otaku’s room look like? Come to think of it, what even inspires one to become an otaku? “Otakus @ Home” aims to answer these questions and more as we explore the homes of self-professed otakus and try find which otaku can boast the most expensive collector’s item.

Each time we’ll introduce a new otaku, their room and their most prized possession and we’ll keep a running tally going on the amount spent until we hit our set goal of 10 million Yen (approx. $100,000). We’ll also be throwing 20 questions at each participant in the project and by the end of it hopefully we’ll all be a little more understanding on the way and life of the otaku.
