ME!ME!ME!, which is an anime short that came out rather recently, had Hideaki Anno (creator of Evangelion) as the producer. Apparently Hayao Miyazaki also made a minor contribution to this short. That said, most of the credit is attributed to these two people It should be well known by now that both Anno and Miyazaki have voiced concerns and criticism on how Otakuism is ruining anime. (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-30/miyazaki/the-problem-with-the-anime-industry-is-it-full-of-otaku). Instead of studio's taking risks and making more artful shows as they did in the 90's (e.g. Evangelion, Utena, Lain), studios these days primarily market and create shows for Otaku. Hence the increase in Moe and Slice and Life anime that started around a decade ago. Within this past decade, the most successful anime/manga/light-novel that tackled the theme of otakuism in a serious way was Welcome to the NHK, and that anime was released all the way back in 2006. Anime has only gotten more saturated with Otaku fan-service since then. In any case, you can watch this 6-7 minute short here: http://animatorexpo.com/mememe/ I also suggest watching this video afterwards for some entertaining yet insightful commentary on the short: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_YjrTyxde8

But yes lets have awkward conversations together and drink ginger ale under the moonlight..I love sea food :3 kay?
Hello! My name is Damonkala I've just joined these forums no longer than an hour ago. I've been a fan of visual novels for nearly 2 years and I had only just discovered the wonderful site of fuwanovel in June! I hope to read many topics and make many friends, as I am very happy to discover such a large group of visual novel fans. I've watched anime as a child but I have only been an otaku for the past 3 years. My first anime was Fooly Cooly and my first visual novel was Katawa Shoujo. Since then I've played Clannad, Kanon, Rewrite, Wind: a breath of the Heart, Steins;Gate, Chaos;Head and many more. Currently I am playing Air. Little Busters is my favorite visual novel of all time, and I am currently watching the anime adaptation. Once again I hope to make some friends and have a fun time here. Thank you for reading my introduction. *bows*
