5 movies you need to watch even being otaku
That's right, movie you need to watch, even being otaku. These films are part of the nerd/geek culture in general, but it is not no longer interesting for an otaku.

Movies that you will like even being Otakinho
You think you're going to stop being otaku just by watching these movies? Don't be fooled, comparing these movies with Japanese content is impossible, one thing is one thing, something else is something else, right? I watched all these movies and more, besides reading a lot of books. Don't feel obligated to watch these movies, just think that watching you will be enriching yourself with culture. Watch your hentais later, watch these movies first, let the Clown rest!
Note: I have decided to list only striking, contradictory and controversial films (like those polemic anime you are already tired of watching).
Where are the animes?
