Toshio Okada, founder of Gainax, a prominent figure behind some of the most important shows and movies in the anime world. He even calls himself the Otaking. He’s lectured on universities worldwide about japanese pop culture and written many books for and about the otaku. The otaku community is very much indebted to this man, but that’s not enough for good ol’ Toshio, he had to do more. So he went ahead and wrote a weight-loss book for the otaku.
Sayonara, Mr. Fatty!: A Geek’s Diet Memoir is precisely that, a chronicle of Mr. Okada’s own struggle with his weight and the very geeky way he found to beat it. The book just recently went on sale in english, so if you are struggling with your weight and the tips from all those jocks on late-night infomercials aren’t cutting it’; why not turn to the Otaking himself for some advice?
He found a way to make every otaku feel like an intellectual with Evangelion’s crammed symbolism, I’m pretty sure he can at least make you feel skinny.
