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


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.
