Otaku (おたく/オタク) is a Japanese term used to refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime, manga, and video games.
One thing which I could never understand was the Japanese infatuation with cuteness and miniature things. Gundam models come in a variety of scales and shapes but recently I was tempted into buying an “SD” Gundam. SD stands for Super Deformed and they’re quite popular in Japan. What they do is take a normal proportioned character and then deform the proportions to make it look child-like or cute.
I just finished this set and now I understand why they’re crazy about it, it does look nice !
