Otaku Magazine is an independent platform that promote the visual art, from national and international artists, an opportunity for them to manifest in various areas (graphic, comic strips, illustration, painting, design, fashion, video, toys and accessories), under the influences of the Japanese entertainment (manga, anime, music, movie, new media, new technologies, etc.) and other artistic currents. The Otaku Magazine project has become reality because of the need of an alternative to the today Romanian environment, like an answer to the growing interest of the young people to cultural diversity and experimentation and the need to express, without any restraints, their own visions and/or works. Otaku Magazine is put together by a team of specialized people, in various domains (project coordinators, designers, DTP graphic specialists, web developers, editors, translators, artists, independent curators, distributors, promoters…). Everything is made out of passion and out of the desire to promote and sustain the cultural diversity around the world. Read Less

OTAKU PLAY

"Serious play represents a feature of any otaku's activity. Basicallyyou play, but you do it with the greatest dedication, seriousness andinterest. We don't want to be the prisoners of the industries that beton our ability as playful mammals, but we desire to know them andexplore their limits. Otaku PLAY explores the universe ofplayers and play of all kinds. How and when you play. What you learnwhile playing and where do you risk arriving when you remain blockedwithin the same play."
