Japanese “nature video” about American nerds

Cory Doctorow:

This Japanese video clip, “Otaku from USA,” is a news-program about groups of American tourists who come to Tokyo to indulge their obsession with Japanese nerdly pursuits — manga, cosplay, etc. There’s lots of video about how cool and odd Japanese teenagers are, but it’s nice to see the lens reversed here, Japanese media looking at America’s fascination with Japanese media. As Gavin puts it, “It’s basically a nature video about nerds. Totally awesome.”
