The otaku show of 2008 may very well have been The Secret of Haruka Nogizaka, with otaku and show references thrown in nearly all over the place. However, one of my favorite parts of this series were the character’s tendency to show up cosplaying as characters which I both know and actually like:
Ah…anime referencing anime. Half the time I don’t even know what show is being referenced, but when I do, I get a real kick out of it. And doing Shana (and Dokuro-chan) just makes it that much more fun. That leads to Shana cosplay being added to the 12 Moments of Anime.
(OK, I know that was a pretty pathetic example, but I was running out of moments to post XD)
The 12 Moments of Anime project is the brainchild of CCY.
