How to Date an Otaku Girl is an American otaku's fantasy

Jun 24 // Brad Rice

I was sitting and eating breakfast this morning out on our back porch -- cheddar and scrambled eggs with a croissant -- when I came across something rather curious in the latest issue of Variety: the film How to Date an Otaku Girl was at #9 in the Singapore charts. What was this movie, I wondered, as I drank my hand-crushed orange juice. I must know.

And so, to the Internet I went for research. The answer, it turns out? The dramatic piece you will find after the jump.

The film tells the story of a boy who ends up dating a fujoshi -- a female otaku of sorts -- who is into boy's love, butlers and all those fun doujinshi pairings like NaruSasu and BradDale. The average, normal guy indulges her, but it seems that life isn't so simple for the couple, and drama ensues. I bet someone gets hit by a car.
