New Director's Edition:
This Is Otakudom (2001)
Stealing from "This Is Spinal Tap," this anime fan parody takes the
form of a fake documentary and follows a group of American otaku
heading to their first anime con. Meet Hong Kong action, shoujo,
bishonen, fanfic, tentacle hentai, and other fans as they experience
the insanity that is an American anime con. A hilarious, but loving,
send up of fandom filled with in-jokes, references, and abject
silliness. 52 Minutes.
|S.T.E.A.M.: The Movie (2005)
Half spy-movie, half late-night channel surfing and all insanity, this anime fan parody is the craziest project yet from NoN.D.E. Fanfilms, the fanboys and girls who made "This Is Otakudom." Incompetent spies, yaoi makeovers, a singing bad guy with a big afro, invisible ninjas, dramatic lightning, silly acronyms, and a mysterious collection of anime artifacts all come together to answer the question: "What happens when the W.A.T.E.R. Team and H.E.A.T. Force go after Mr. Big Fro and E.V.I.L. Team?" 81 Minutes.
