International Intrigue: If you order a Blu-Ray set for delivery to Canada, the United Kingdom or the European Union, our Shipping Ninjas will cleverly redirect your order to a local fulfillment warehouse, which means no Customs duty or processing fees! One caveat, however: your order can't also contain items that have to be shipped from the USA. We can also ship the Bubblegum Crisis Blu-Ray Set this way as well, and you can order both and only pay one shipping charge.

Resistance is Futile! You will be Otakunized!

A true treat for true fans of any genre, Otaku no Video ("Fan's Video") is an outrageous mockumentary that combines the superb animation that made GAINAX one of Japan's best-loved animation studios with truly strange interviews with "real animation fans." The result is a thinly fictionalized history of GAINAX that segues into a truly strange SF adventure. 

Sit back and enjoy as a small band of Otaku (fans) set out to "Otakunize" the human race! 

AnimEigo's special limited edition Blu-Ray Otaking Edition of Otaku no Video contains both episodes: "Otaku no Video 1982" and "New Otaku no Video 1985", multiple subtitle options, 3 commentary tracks, copious extras, liner notes, mini-poster, new manga, and an exclusive embroidered patch.

The Premium version of the Otaking Edition adds a 180+ page artbook and a chipboard case to hold both Blu-Ray and book.

  • Considered the "Bible" for true Anime Fans.

  • Character designs by Kenichi Sonoda (Bubblegum Crisis, Gunsmith Cats).

  • Also available on DVD.

  • Check out our extensive Otaku no Video Wiki!
