  • Comments: Let's start this year with a tribute to anime fanboys. Otaku Paradise is about the average fanboy's desire of escapism.
    I had this idea also for a long time now. Originally I intended to just use Hanaukyo Maids and describe how that really would be a paradise. Then Genshiken started airing and the base idea behind this AMV started to grow. Now it's about the fandom itself. Using the Hanaukyo Maids now as a base and beginning.. it usually starts with just one anime, now doesn't it?-) Then it grows and finally you are quite hooked on anime and *bang* you have became a fanboy. "You can't practice to become one.."
    I know about the meaning and difference behind the words "fanboy" and "otaku". Why the title is "otaku paradise" is simply because I think it looks/sounds better than "fanboy paradise".
    Like always, this AMV too has many little details in it that most people won't see or get. One thing I was quite amused of is how the "real life" scenes of Genshiken are in "wide screen/movie"-format while other anime scenes are normal 640x480..
    Nothing much to say about the song. Just thought it would work as an AMV. One problem about it is that the song ends quite suddenly, also making the AMV feel like it hits a brick wall at the end. Couldn't really come up with any way to counter it.

    Note: Some of the anime listed in credits has not much time on screen. Main focus is on Hanaukyo/Genshiken combination.

    That's about it. I hope you'll enjoy this AMV =^_^=

    ...what maid fetish?
