  • I'm right in the heart of Akihabara today

  • To talk about ANIME song DJs

  • Now, to be honest I don't know much about this so I enlisted the help of my friend

  • Patrick w Galbraith

  • author of

  • OTAKU Spaces & The Otaku Encyclopedia

  • Come on out here

  • Hey! Are you doing

  • Great

  • Nice see you

  • So, today's topic is ANIME song DJs what can you tell us about this?

  • ANIME song DJ events has really been growing in the last few years.If you go around Tokyo today

  • You'll find an event going on around every week

  • It's really sort of booming phenomenon these last few years

  • Yeah

  • It' really exciting

  • My image of OTAKU is someone who stays at home

  • Doesn't go out socially

  • Reads & watches ANIME MANGA in the bedroom

  • yeah, I think that's the image. It's sort of a bunch of individuals doing their own thing

  • Hey look

  • We're Akihabara all these people together doing social things

  • Guess what? You go to a club

  • You get a bunch of OTAKU together

  • and they have helluva time

  • Right

  • These ANIME DJ song cover bands

  • Really cool because what you get is, a bunch of people with their individual passion

  • sharing e and becoming a social energy in the room

  • you'll really have to be the understand it

  • I was there

  • Check it out!

  • We are in Nakano in front of RAIZEEN an ANIME DJ bar

  • This place is gotta lot of energy and I think you're gonna love it

  • Come on

  • Check it out!

  • This place is great

  • This bar is set up for ANIME song DJ

  • There is screen which shows ANIME right next to the DJ

  • This just had to be excitement

  • Hello

  • Let's meet the owner of RAIZEEN

  • Is it real?

  • Well

  • Maybe not

  • RAIJIN is..

  • well for me it's very comfortable i mean it's

  • Look around at the decoration it's all ANIME and ANIME song

  • DJing is a lot of fun

  • Master the bartenders is a really

  • nice and laid back guy

  • Let's anyone who really wants just

  • Go and use the DJ equipment

  • Pretty much no notices as long as there aren't any events going on

  • So when I first came to japan i didn't really know a lot about uh...

  • ANIME music,ANIME DJ at all

  • LIke, over time getting to meet various people uh... like

  • One of my best friends in my last job was ANIME DJ

  • and he introduced me to an event one-time & i went along not really

  • knowing what to expect

  • uh... it was really really cool that people are friendly fun atmosphere was a

  • Really good

  • I kind of uh... I realize that

  • You know that ANIME music taken out of the context of ANIME was

  • still really really good

  • And the the way that people mix ANIME songs together

  • and think of different things

  • For example you got like the IMOTO theme, that sometimes some people do

  • umm

  • even uh... specifically ANIME songs from a certain era

  • 1980s or something

  • I thought i was really really cool that people would think about it

  • Amazing ways to show ANIME songs

  • She is part of RAIZEEN staff

  • Really cute

  • and

  • also deadly wielding a sword

  • This bartender could well be SAMURAI

  • Maybe not

  • With a little more practice

  • His dreams just might come true

  • RAIZEEN definitely has the right atmosphere for ANIME song DJ to learn

  • Master

  • Simply appreciate the music and experience

  • Let's head to Roppongi in central Tokyo for another kind of event

  • On the other side of this door is another world

  • This is CHARA-ANI

  • CHARA meaning kind of Roppongi young carefree and

  • ANI meaning ANIME

  • and taken the two and put them all together

  • to make a fusion of some kind of fantastic dance party

  • Come on!

  • KONBANWA

  • There are no Anime on the screen because they don't wanna

  • go to one world or the other. It is a

  • fully perfectly balanced

  • I don't know

  • Check it out for yourself!

  • It's seems like any other Roppongi club

  • Lots of young people and loads of energy

  • Many people have come in cosplay

  • It's the essence of saturday night in Tokyo

  • Some people have the glow sticks with them

  • Signs of real after hour OTAKU

  • People at ANIME DJ events like this really like doing things in unison

  • as a group

  • One of the great things about OTAKU parties is that inability to dances not

  • really necessary

  • I fitted with a lot of the others who are here to show their passion

  • in ways dancing can't express

  • Coordination and skills can be checked in at the door

  • It's all about having fun

  • The focus is on the DJ and the music

  • This DJ is ready to rumble.Glow sticks and library of tunes for the crowd

  • The music switches back and forth from ANIME songs to

  • The classic Roppongi hip hop

  • The crowd eats it up

  • They are psyched and ready for anything

  • Before the event I talked DJ KAPPEI and DJ TAKAYA

  • about what CHARA-ANI is all about

  • Cultures collide at CHARA-ANI

  • It's awesome

  • So Patrick, in part 2 we're gonna continue with this ANIME song DJ

  • in a place where it's dedicated just for ANIME songs DJs,

  • Oh,yeah

  • that's gonna be helluva time

  • And we'll see more of it

  • Next time

  • Bye bye bye
