School of Otaku and Anime Studies

controls Filter
School of Otaku and Anime Studies is the class we all want to take but no one offers: a class dedicated to loving anime and deconstructing that love. So join Anthea, Jeanne, Kash and Rice in their weekly “classes” of this unofficial SOAS course as they get philosophical about what it means to be an otaku, the study of otaku culture, anime analysis and fan-spazzing at the same time!
