So you think you’re otaku enough? Maybe not after you watch the videos below ^^;
Introducing TV Champion’s “Gaijin Akihabara King!”
What is this “Gaijin Akihabara King” about then?
It basically is a programme with contestants from all over the world (A Frenchman, a Russian girl, two Americans and a guy from Hong Kong). They were then subjected to a variety of questions on the anime/manga world (From your Dragonball/Gundam era to the more recent series such as Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu). This questions are seriously hard and only a few normal people can answer them. Could only answer 2 questions from the “Guess the song title” catagory ^^;
Following that of the “Guess the song title” catagory, the contestants were bought to Akihabara, where they were to identify maid works at which maid cafe, identify the source of an unknown drink, identify the episode number and title of an episode of Evangelion. They also had to opportunity to voiceplay(LOL) like the seiyuus of animes. With the scripts in their hands and the anime screening on two monitors in front of them.
The contestants had the chance to visit the Kotobukiya shop in Akiba (with video cameras going in as well!), cosplay cafes (I want to go ^^) and try out Otaku-don (オイシク タクサン クエル: オタク – Translated: To eat alot of nice things). Pretty cool name don’t you think? XD
^ Female Char Aznable! Hawt!
Overall, I do find the video pretty good. Course, you might been distracted by Jonathan’s (The American guy) weird dancing and singing, the random African guy donning pink kimono in the background (That combination plus his clown’s like actions really had me laughing out loud!) Also quite flabbergasted how they remember almost everything. Must have been that gaijin smash power they have been saving up XD
For those who would like the video, you can grab it from pireze.org <Link> Youtube links for the full video went offline as it’s due to a copyright claim by TV TOKYO Corporation. :/
So in the end, are you otaku enough? ^^
P.S: Thanks LianYL for the heads-up. Spelt Konata’s name wrongly ^^;
