J: The documentary Akihabara Geeks follow the lives of a few of the inhabitants of Akihabara or as it’s been nicknamed “Electric Town.”
And as I like to call the inhabitants “damn lucky,” oh what I would not do to live there, where many geeks congregate. It would be like a large convention every day. The documentary is not hard-hitting by any means. In fact it could almost act as a holiday advertisement for Akihabara. We get to know some of the occupants and they seem to be like anyone else with their own dreams and their own little quirks, except for one resident who is painted as downright odd.
