Title: What if there was an Otaku University
Post by: venka21 on June 03, 2010, 01:09:45 PM
I saw recently saw the movie "Accepted".

For those who haven't seen the movie it has a guy who is essentually a college reject, so he and his fellow college rejects lease a conveniantly abandoned psychiactric hospital and remodel it into a fake College campus.

I thought the movie was dumb when it came out in theaters a couple years ago and I still think it's dumb now. But it did get me wondering...what if there was an Otaku University. A school for anime/Manga fans.

It could possibly work if done well cause of course their will be the A-typical subjects of "Language arts," "Math", "Art", "Music", "Gym" "Buisness" "History" so on and so forth.

But they can be sort of done with an anime theme to it
so Art will consist of "Manga Drawing" "Costume Design" "Art mediums" Ect.

Gym: "Anime Fan Dancing" "Ninja training (Mainly stealth, tracking, and team exercises) Ect.

Business: Anime industry

Language arts: Creative fanfiction, Character analysis and development, Animated debate

History: History of Anime, World history depicted through anime

School wide events: All night Capture the flag event.


Howered there are many cases as to how this won't work. Some prime examples are the Sub vs. Dub factions, not to mention the "Het fans vs. Yaoi Fans vs. Yuri fans" And this is in addition to the school board prudes who feel this school shouldn't exist because it doesn't function as a normal school.

Not really a convention. This is a what if there was an Otaku University.

If one existed there will also be genaric rules
like Class buildings being open at 7:00 or 8:00 and closed at 9:00 PM or 10:00 PM.

Everyone needs to be in their dorms buildings by 11:00 PM

Boys can visit the girls dorm and vis/vers during the day hours (limited to rec room)

so on

If it can be comparable to a convention it would be more like a "Year round covention"

Well naturally there will be regulations of eating, sleeping, and bathing. As in we will hose you down in public with soap and water if you don't.

I would apply for it but then again it would be a nightmare. I don't think it would be a good idea.
Title: Re: What if there was an Otaku University
Post by: venka21 on June 14, 2010, 12:51:41 AM
People on other forums have actually liked this idea and thought it might be fun to do.

I can't say it would work in reality because odds are it wouldn't. However it would be interesting to see as a fan manga such like Aoi house or maybe an RPG.

Well, there's a reason for anime clubs in college and high schools. Many anime conventions start because of them like Fanime.




Back to OU classes, I bet there'll be a class on FAILing. I'd pass that.

Class schedule? Refer to the Fanime program guide.

Odds are it... would work, it's called a specialty school. The school itself would work... what would result from going there is pretty much nothing though.

You realize there's VA schools, art schools, etc. already right? You're just saying let's combine them.

"Anime business" are you dumb? Anime business is the same as regular business, what would be different? The business aspect is the same, regardless of what the subject matter is.

So what is the point of this? To combine a bunch of different trade schools? I don't see what you're getting at in this thread.

You missed the point in accepted if you think you can even closely apply it at all to this idea. The idea behind accepted was that, there are different ways to teach and learn, and the idea that one MUST go to a sanctioned college with the idea that, books, diplomas, and professors are the only way to gain anything in this society shouldn't be the truth.

Unfortunately, it is the truth, because no one will give a fuck if you go to this joke "university" compared to going to an established trade school in VA.

SOME FUN THINGS TO NOTE... more than 95% of people that go to VA schools don't get into VAs. The majority that make it, don't do well as VAs and even those that eventually do take years to make it a stable job. Most VAs work two jobs upwards to 10-15 years(talking the professional ones that make it big).

So again, you weeaboos can discuss the idea and be like "OMG IT'S SOOOOOO COOL!" and then the haters can talk about "but think about how gross it would be!!!" neither of which apply a god damned bit to the reality of things. Yay, reality, you people should try living in it.

Hey, you gotta try stuff at least once before making any judgements right? In this case, I'll definitely join, even though it's almost certain that this idea will crash and burn. ...epic... xD

It looks better in-game and in motion with the ESPN tickers.
I made a whole league full of conventions. ("Peter Moore" is the default coach name)

Yeah, I was bored, lol

Well naturally there will be regulations of eating, sleeping, and bathing. As in we will hose you down in public with soap and water if you don't.

So every day after school the professors will take everyone outside an make them all stand clumped together before turning on the sprinklers? Sounds like fun. xD
