With a name derived from the infamous Kenkanryu, Ohta Books has published Ken Otaku Ryu, "Hating the Otaku Wave." Unlike Kenkanryu, Ken Otaku Ryu is not a manga; the 224 page book vilifies otaku and is a counter-piece to the recent positive press that otaku culture has received from Japanese and international media. Among other things, the book focuses on and attacks moe and lolicon interests and states that otaku discriminate against women.
