Photos and videos: CrunchGear visits Japan's biggest Otaku party (CGM Night)

Japan’s most famous Otaku culture blogger Danny Choo invited video games/anime/manga/Cosplay/figures/maid cafe fanatics from all over the country last weekend, and about 200 showed up at Digital Hollywood University for the eighth “CGM Night” (here‘s my report on the last one).

The idea is to bring Otaku and geeks out of their rooms and socialize among people of their kind. Needless to say, I was one of them (I live in Tokyo).

There was a plethora of cool figures, wild costumes, famous Otaku “idols” etc. at the event. Here are some Cosplay fans:
