Didier Volckaert, aka Ikari 'Ellis' Katsumi, has compiled an impressive collection of images and authored a fascinating travelogue to guide us through the world of Otaku culture. Animated Life / Otaku Futurism puts us at the threshold of anime as life itself, the complex and refined form of reality lived by Otaku. Thoroughly researched, intense and far-reaching, this volume is, in the words of Ikari 'Ellis' Katsumi, an omiyage, a source of strategies, a sea of possibilities, a manifest, a gift.
