If you're one of the eight people on this planet who watch MTV2, congratulations! You knew that this week was MTV2's “Otaku Week.”


For the rest of us, um...it's MTV2's “Otaku Week.” Yay!(?) Apparently the method of celebration is to post videos from Otakon 2008, never mind that it was nearly six months ago. So far we have a video of kids playing what appears to be Yu-Gi-Oh! (does “Toon Goblin Attack Force” mean anything to you?), and another video of a Link cosplayer.



Well, it's lulz-worthy, but probably not the way MTV2 meant it all to be....

I'll care when they actually play the JAM Project songs played at Otakon, but that would require an MTV channel playing music.

@Niko: Play music? On a music channel? That's absurd, good day sir!

MTV always capitalizes on reality shows now... the only reason they have videos like the one above is to make fun of people who are deemed as "losers." It's like those episodes of... uhh... I think it's called something like "Made" or whatever where there was one episode with this huge naruto fan who wanted to be a rock star. There was another episode that had a cosplayer who wanted to be prom queen or something.
Why would I know this? Forums I go on had links to the episodes of course. I don't watch MTV ever unless linked to something that many interest me. Those episodes I mentioned? Boring drabble that makes your brain fart.

@RedRoses: You could've just said they were up on Japanator and been done with that dodgy reasoning >_>

Oh, MTV sucks.

Well...assuming I can get the triple solid oxide fuel cells to work with my design, the first thing I think I'm going to seek out and step on would be any of these studios that keep putting out all these horrendous TV channels...starting with MTV, then VH1, and then move on to certain corrupt politicians.

All you need to know about Yu-Gi-Oh! is that Rocket Warrior is awesome.

You should also watch Yu-Gi-Oh! the abridged series @ yugiohabridged.com. Your interest in yugioh should not be a factor in your enjoyment of that series.

Oh and Otaku week? silly, ignore it!
