Photos by popular Japan based blogger Danny Choo from the @Home Maid Cafe, one of the more popular cosplay cafes in Akihabara, Tokyo. Photography is usually not allowed in a themed cafe; these pictures were taken when Danny was filming a TV show, Culture Japan, for Animax Asia last summer.
Full one-hour video of the first episode of Culture Japan. It’s a TV show produced by blogger Danny Choo and broadcast by Tokyo MX and Animax Asia. Video in Japanese but with English subtitles.
The show focuses on the otaku subculture in Japan. Otaku is a Japanese term for people with obsessive interests; and it usually refers to hardcore anime and manga fandom.
It’s less serious in global context though, it simply means being an anime fan in most cases.
Danny Choo runs a popular blog here, and looks like he’s working to build a media franchise of his own. Beside this he also made global headlines a few years ago as the Tokyo Storm Trooper.
