TokyoSchoolofAnime-Mascot

The Tokyo School of Anime (a school that provides education for animation, voice acting and other otaku-centric hobbies) has announced that it will be opening another school entitled the “Akiba Business School”, which will specialize specifically in pop culture and the entertainment industry – finally allowing otaku to profit more directly from their shady interests.

The Akiba Business School will reportedly offer a total of six majors: Maid & Cosplay Business, Anime Event Staff, Doujinshi, Idol, Anime Producer and Idol Producer, all of which are bound to offer some interesting if obvious career directions.

Cosplay parties and the like, as well as the ability to join clubs dedicated to interests such as dubbing and anime songs will apparently be a staple of student life, along with a chance to even join either of the school’s two idol groups:

AkibaBusinessSchool-IdolGroup-Moe7

AkibaBusinessSchool-IdolGroup-Schooool

AkibaBusinessSchool-Christmas-Party

Applications are being accepted now (though for only a few of the majors for the time being), with information sessions being scheduled for March 5th, 12th and the 19th at the Tokyo School of Anime in West Kasai; those itching to further their education as otaku can sign up at the school’s official website, and classes start April, 2017.

    They teach you how to become a producer-san that is the envy of fat losers and anti-social twig-arms as you acquire a loli harem that you get to bang before and after their performances!? Well then...liberal arts degrees aren't as useless as used to think.

    Well, there's Twitter Safety Council, probably some positions at the UN and maybe some other scam organization you could join with a degree in oppressed.

    Someone still needs to hire them.

    Does this degree give them an advantage over those who don't have it? I doubt it.

    And over here, it's really difficult just to find a school that can teach you desired foreign language...

    That happens everywhere with any language that's not english. Try finding a school that will teach you hindi or bengali to expand your company...

    I find it offensive that they directly assume and relate otakus with Idols and their fans... but maybe that is how it is in Japan..? Which would be pretty sad, indeed. Anime does not scam you off your money with ephemeral skin contact promises...

    I doubt that, otaku in of itself is actually broad term for someone who is heavily invested in a hobby. It doesn't have to be anime related at all and they know that. They're the ones who came up with the term.

    But that's not the point. It's obvious this is meant to be focused on anime stuff and anything related, and I don't think it was made to be offensive... c'mon now.

    But on the other hand, they don't offer anything for train otakus, castle otakus, history otakus, car otakus, etc... So the bias is obvious.
    By the way, worst school idol units ever!

    Almost all "uni/college" idol groups are hideous.

    How could you major in doujinshi? I'm pretty sure the statistic is something like 80% of doujin circles lose money.

    Just looked it up, more than 90% of circles lose money or break even according to Comiket.

    Well, that's because they don't have a degree in doujinshi.
